Help Me Decide What To Do Next!!!

So I got the 1000 point force, a decent table setup and a buddy to play with on a regular basis...

So now what do I do?

I got a few ideas I want to run by you. I'm not really sure which one to do so I've set up a poll I'm gonna keep up for a bit and let YOU decide what The 25mm Warrior should do next.

1. Finish the Ork army
I like my Orks, I didn't think I would but after seeing how they painted up I was hooked (you can see them up there on my title). I got about 750pts and their geared twoads the Goffs army build which means loads of infantry. I got Warbikers, Deffkopters, a Battlewagon and a ton more infantry to do and once they were finished I would have another 40k force to play with.

2. Start on The 147th Imperial Legion Idea
A couple of weeks ago Opiewan and I were discussing ideas for an Imperial Guard army I've always wanted to do. This army would have playing card suits to differentiate between the platoons and have pinup girl decals on the tanks. Due to their fluff (a future post for sure) they are made of of every Imperial Guard unit out there. So you would see Cadians, Preatorians, Steel Legion etc all fighting together. This would be a blast to do and with all the different troop types would look very diverse and unique.

3. Build a Ruined City Table
Who hasn't ever wanted to do this? In all the environments you could play in this has got to be my favorite. The GW ruined city looks awesome, I found a game mat made for it, the board itself lends it to tons of different ways to play the game (could play with the city fight rules for instance). It would give me a different place to play on and would look awesome.

So there you have it fellas, which is it gonna be? Whatever one gets the most votes over the next week or so I WILL DO! You will decide my focus of this blog, the direction of my hobby and *gulp* how much money I'm gonna have to spend :) Even after the poll is tallied and one is chosen there will be other polls to decide how you would like to see it done.

HELP ME FROM THE WARP!!!! YOUR MY ONLY HOPE!!!!

THE CHOICE IS YOURS!!!

I always had the same problem :D The result ? Well, space marines army in progress ( tons of miniatures waiting to be painted :P ), tyranid army in progress, some pieces of terrain in progres and i just bought catachans squad :D Im also thinking of imperial guard army, just waiting for new battleforce release. It's killing my wallet hehe. But I don't regret. I will finish them someday, I hope :P

I've been having trouble completing my army simply because I keep going back to building terrain. It's addictive to make the stuff. New terrain can be fun to play on though.

As for any army, I'm the kind of person who likes to get a whole army finished before doing another one. I'd say, if you already have the terrain and the Orks started, bring the army up to whatever points level you and your opponent will be playing, or if nothing else, try to keep pace in points with your opponent so you both can constantly use everything. I just started playing with a new group and that's what they're doing. :D

Finish the Orks, they look mint.

I say go with the Guard. Although that's going to be my next project, so I'm kind of biased. But I like the idea of mixing units - very original. Hope to see that one pan out.

The images of pin up girls on tanks makes me think of Memphis Bell. Great war flick!

Never seen that one. I'm gonna have to check it out now! Thanks for the reference Hammer!

If you are up for doing batreps a pretty tabletop and scenery are key - although painted models are also key. Working together gets the job done fast - production style...

Otherwise if you have lots of armies, I'd try out what we're doing with the Battle of Six Armies, basically doing a tournament between 500 pts of 6 different races...

Go with the guard mate ..... ;-)

Terrain. No matter how nice your armies may look, if you're table's not up to par, it doesn't matter. Get the table done up front, then spend your time finishing and starting your armies. Your miniatures will thank you for it!

Personally I feel a game can only be complete when three things come together. You have a finished starting army, a war table to play on, now move onto the terrain. I say go for the ruined city project! Then IMO you will have the trifecta of gaming!

Also depending on materials used you can create a very nice ruined city using the cheapest of materials. So it can be a win/win situation as you can create sprawling city ruins for super cheap.

I'd say go with the Orks or the table.

Don't start a new army with one still in progress, I did that (started Chaos when I should have been finishing my Eldar) and not I'm behind on things with my Eldar and my Chaos is barely started. :P

That and everyone will be doing Guard in a few months with the new Codex. Though I will say that the theme for the Guard army sounds really cool.

I'm torn between finishing the orks and the pin up girl...

Then again, I have the same problem to on which army to decide to finish, so, really I'm doing it all the same time!
