Hello!
I'm thinking about starting a warhammer 40K army besides all my mordheim stuff and i'm pretty much hooked on either orks or chaos.
Any of you who can recommend/the opposite (decommend?) any of them?

I've been reading a bit in the ork codex, but i couldn't find any special rules for the different klans, is that just fluf?

Thanks in advance Wink

Either one is alot of fun. I have a small force of CSM, which are a blast to play. They are more CC than thier goody goody cousins the SMs.

Now I have a really BIG Ork force. I luv da ladz! If you like a crazy wacked out army who likes ta go crumpin sum pink oomies, then the boyz are for you! Orks are highly competitive with a mixture of craziness involved, with some great looking models.

Hope this helps.

PS i have no clue about the DE never played them, only crushed them

I'd recommend Chaos. Even though I don't play 40K, I have quite a boring time at work so I read through a lot of fluff on the CSM and I have to admit that I think it's just awesome (all the Horus Heresy stuff). So, go for them!

Btw, eldar's not an option i'm goin for - it was just to state that they're clowns Smile

Hehe i've got one of each, orkz and chaos.. and still in doubt..

I'm thinking about starting with orkz just to get playing - i'm not very healthy moneywise and they have that box with orkz and marines which i can split with a friend.. it's pretty cheap for around 900 points of orkz so might buy that and slowly save up for the cooooooool chaos unless i fall madly in love with the green boyz (which i probably will)

ORKZ IS DA BEST! There, THAT about covers it.

The Dark Eldar have some VERY COOL minis; if you're into kinky, they'd be the way to go.
The Chaos Space Marines ARE JUST so much better than the Loyalist Space Nazis, erm..Marines. The only experience I've had with either type of SMs is as commission work, AND the Chaos lads ARE much more enjoyable to paint. My only hangup with Chaos is that unless they have Angels I don't like the inclusion of Demons. Suspect
NOW, with the Orkz you have a hobby project that can last your ENTIRE life. There is always SOMETHING cool to add to the Gang. If you're into converting, kit-bashing, AND have a strong sense of the absurd, then Orkz ARE the way.

thanks guys! (btw, it's the regular puny eldar, not their slighty cooler kin)

I think i'll go for the orkz - eventhough i'll have tons of tons of models to paint and even with mordheim i'm still millions of models behind schedule..

Any of you know the restrictions for model count? i haven't read the rulebook, just looked at the codex and it seemed to me (i hope i've overlooked a rule) that for 1500 points you could get a warboss and 480 gretchins!?

no restrictions model count as long as you work by the codex army list thingy.

(Marine one for example is 1 hq and 2 troop choices) i think orks will be the same.

So mass boy it with power claws in the mobs and have fun Razz

Bah, too many Ork armies out now. Max Loota;'s and a couple other units seems to be the standard Ork army in the metagame right now, I'd look for you but if you want solid advice on an ork army that is going to win head over to the 40k section of the dakkadakka forums:

http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/forums/show/14.page

That's teh 40k army list section, when you have a list draw3n up drop it there also for a much more qualified basis of advice. There's a few chaps on their that will really help make the list more competitive as a whole.

I voted CSM's by the way, because I am buildinga Fabius Bile force as we speak and Bile absolutely rules (The champs with power fists in the CSM Enhanced units are strength 10...Very Happy).

Hope that helps,

Ram.

I voted Orcs for a personal reason. Never played them in Warhammer, 40K, and only a little in Mordheim - but they've always interested me. If I were to start a new army / warband, I might go orcs. Fluff-wise, I've always thought they were pretty tough and interesting.
