Daily Chronicle: 4/22/2010: Pondering Which Army To Do Next

With my Tyranid army moving quite nicely (should be completed by early May), it got me pondering which Warhammer 40K army do I want to finish next, or possibly start a whole new army.  Here is a list of choices:

Existing armies needing to be completed:
Orks:  I already have about 1750 points all assembled for a horde force.  About 90+ Orks, some Coptas, some Trukks.

Ultramarines:  I assembled an all Drop Pod 1750 point Ultramarine army about 1.5 years ago and have everything all basecoated blue.  I just was never motivated to actually finish them up.  I really did not pick up on the style of play for the Drop Pod assault army so they were shelved.

Possible new armies:
Blood Angels:  Well, the new Codex is out, need I say more.  I could always rebase most of my Ultramarines to become Blood Angels.

Space Wolves:  Another really new Codex.  I know longer own anymore Space Wolves bitz (years years ago I had started one and sold them off) so I would have to purchase everything new.

Tau:  Once I had started this army also, but sold them all off.  I always wanted a Tau army, I'm just afraid of a new Codex coming out before I start on them.

Vostroyans:  I do love these guys and really want them.  But I just finished an Imperial Guard army (and one that I will always expand on.....  my Imperial Guard army will be my army that will always grow.)

The problem I have with the Marine armies is, I already own a lot of Marines.  I have a Dark Angels and Black Templars army, I also have my sons Dark Angels and Salamander armies.  So having another Marine army may not be fun.

Moneywise, I probably should just finish my Orks or actually finish the Ultramarine's.  I could probably get the Orks painted up pretty fast, but there is A LOT of them......

So I placed a POLL on the top right of this blog.  Go ahead vote and help me decide which army to do next.

  1. Go ahead and knock out the Orks. Maybe by the time you're done with them you'll have a feeling on what you want to do next.
