After playing some Mordheim games we decided with my friends to buy a Warhammer 40k battleforce and start playing Wh40k. I started reading all the codexes/forums but I feel a little overwhelmed with information. What I would like to sort out is which battleforce should I choose as a newbie? My friends will buy Dark Eldar and Tau battleforces and we agreed that for start we all should buy one.
I ruled out a lot of factions since I don't like them and these are the remaining ones:
- Imperial Guard (Catachan)
- Space Wolves
- Dark Angels (Ravenwing or Dark Vengeance pack?)
- Grey Knights (maybe?)
- I also like Tau but I don't want to play a Tau vs Tau game
I'm not trying to choose against Tau and Dark Eldar but something which fits my playstyle:
I usually like to play long ranged hard hitting units with little focus on melee (I know it is necessary but I like kiting tactics more). I also like units with troll (fun) factor. For example the Necron Reanimation Protocol is one of them. I also do not like horde-like factions like the Tyranids (and IG possibly).
If nothing changes I will buy Necron but I'm just not sure at the moment.
