Favourite Warhamnmer 40,000 Faction and Subfaction

Post by Xandy on Sun Oct 10, 2010 7:18 pm

What's your favourite 40k faction and your favourite subfaction of that group?

My favourite faction is Chaos marines, because they're space marines only more badass and with daemonic shit.

My favourite Chaos marine legion is Alpha Legion, since they have the best tactics and strategies out of any other Legion. I also love how you can't tell if they're actually bad guys or if their secretly still working for the good of humanity.

Oh, and they're the rivals of the Ultramarines, who I hate with a burning passion.

Chaos space marines, specifically the word bearers legion.

I think my favourite would be the Imperial Guard. They suit my tactics well.

However, I tend to vary between them and the Tau.

I don't play 40k that much (Apart from the occasional Dawn of War) so I'm not up to date with the subfactions.

But dammit, the Imperial Guard can wax my Leman Russ any day.

Imperial Guard!

Although I hate the tanks.......

I prefer their commissars and hybrid races like Ogryns.

This is Warhammer we're talking about here. Subtlety is not known to them.

Hell, the Space Marines are essentially equipped with rapid fire portable grenade launchers as a standard weapons.

Yes, but the cannons on the tank in the picture above give it a very conflicting image. I get it's supposed to look terrifying, but when you put a cannon that large on it you turn it into something cartoonish, which is rather nonthreatening. It makes it look like something you'd see out of an Advanced Wars anime.

That is unless those cannons were flare guns. Then I could understand.

Well, I prefer 30k (you know, when the Imperium didn't suck).
The current Imperium is a festering sore that must be purged.

I can't really decide, but I have a short list.
Eldar - Harlequins + webway + there history + everything
Ulthwe - Eldrad Ulthran!

Chaos - Don't really like them, however:
Alpha Legion - Read Legion and it will be obvious. Wink

The Inquisition.

And for the sub-faction, the Sisters of Battle. The enemies of The Imperium shall be purged in the purifying flames of the Inquisition.

Eldar, more elitist than any other faction

or noise marines, I still want to make one of them with a 4 stringed blast master, and a cute little amp ^^

I like nearly all the factions IN warhammer 40k as well as warhammer fhb.
But it would probably be Tyranids with Hive Fleet Behemoth, Chaos Space Marines with Iron Warriors or the Imperial guard with the Tallarn's .
Mainly because they are all bad arse's.

Get Dawn of War then. Imperial Guard and Space Marines should be right up your alley. Very Happy

Space Marines

Sons of Medusa (kickass colour scheme) and Greek iconography beats Roman hands down

Which is why I painted mine as a commissar's baneblade. Black with red and gold details so it scares people nto firing everything they have at it. Basically, it's a 500 point distraction. Expensivei I know, but it's a distraction that they can't ignore.

OT: I'd have to say Elysian Drop Troops, though I field mine as the 31st Harakoni Warhawks. I'm thinking about getting some of the new Blood Angels as another deep striking force when I get some money that I can spare for something other than food/power/staying alive.
