I'm a novice player of Warhammer 40k at the moment (Space Marines of course, For the emperor!) and am also looking into starting up a Warhammer Fantasy army after playing a quick game in my local store and purchasing the (immense) rulebook. However, I'm kind of torn with which army to choose, so I was hoping for some suggestions/opinions on which is your favourite army and why, and why you think it might be suitable for me.
When I play fantasy computer games I tend to lean towards characters/classes that are more magic oriented (Warlocks, Mages and the like) or characters that are a kind of mixture between magic and melee (Such as Paladins) so that's the kind of army I'd be kind of leaning towards. I'm also quite a fan of big cool looking monsters
So far I have ruled out a few though. Namely the Tomb Kings (I don't want an army of boring looking skeletons) and Vampire Counts (again, most of the units seem to be skeletons).
I'm also not a huge fan of Skaven or Lizardmen, but might be swayed if someone can make a good argument for them, heh.
Good post Lagamorph.
