Hello there,

 

I just started last week playing at my local GW, a good friend Invited me to play and I really liked it.

I lost my first game ofcoarse but still it was fun.

 

After that my friend asked me if I liked it and which army from would I like to start,

I wasnt so sure and said the 2 that speak to me the most were

Death Guard and Adeptus Mechanicum 

 

After a week of beeing obsest with Battle reports from Miniwargaming and many others.

I really wanna start collecting/playing but I don't know which army should be my first since.

I really dont know which, Death Guard or Ad Mech?

 

When I start playing I really wanna be somewhat competativ and go later in the future with my army

to tournaments and so on. :D

 

Can you guys help me with my problem? XD

 

Well than all i can say now would be, I hope I enjoy the time here and may the dice god be on your side.

Welcome to the hobby and B&C Pen :tu: If it's a toss up between DG and AdMech then there's a few easier places to start with the theme and play styles, so what sort of army would you like to play?

Thanks for the welcome biggrin.png

 

I think im going AdMech since its easier to give the Units the right load out unlike DG.

Also i heard from my friend that AdMech gets stuff from a side called Forge World from the Horus Heresy part soon.

And i must say this Thanatar Robot would look really cool next to the Kastelan.

Even tho Mortarion looks like a beast.

I don't know if the Forge World stuff will make it to the 40k side of things, but it's a safe assumption given it has happened to Marines - the question may be when!

 

Don't worry about the DG, perhaps down the line when your AdMech have a good collection going you might fancy something a bit different and return to them :)

Hi there fellow newbie!

I too have been struggling with choosing between different armies. In the end, I always hear the same recommendation: pick what appeals to you the most. If Admech is the one that appeals to you the most for whatever reason, go for that!!

Greetings and salutations fellow Frater. As for what force to collect, do both lol. Sure it will take longer to build a force but then you wont get bored painting the same kinda stuff all the time. Just alternate purchases. 


Unbearable, isn't it? The suffering of strangers, the agony of friends. There is a secret song at the center of the world, and its sound is like razors through flesh.
