Actually a big fan of WHFB. Play Vampire Counts (was Undead...new version actually feels a lot like the older versions) and thinking about Chaos and Ogre Kingdoms. Been building a lot of OneMonks minis just for that. He has some great Skeletons and Chaos both.

I only have a lowly Crom the Conqueror from the WH Fantasy range.

I also have some Daemonhunters Terminators from 40k that I got just to paint. :)

Hi folks
I recently just started playing WFB.  I play Chaos Warriors.

I started off by getting the Battalion set so I have

5 Chaos Knights
20 Chaos Marauders
10 Chaos Warhounds
12 Warriors of Chaos

I have added
1 Exalted Hero
5 Chaos Sorcerers  
1 Khorne lord on a Juggernought
1 Sorcerer lord on the Disk of Tzeetch
15 Marauder Horsemen

And just for the heck of it I got another battalion box set, so another
5 Chaos Knights
20 Chaos Marauders
10 Chaos Warhounds
12 Warriors of Chaos

I can now field an effective 2000 point army.

I'm now looking to add some Chaos Ogres or other such creatures to make things a little more entertaining.

I had previoulsy stayed away from WFB because the painting intimidated me.  But since I started painting, I find I enjoy it more than I though I would.  I still don't paint all that well.  But my painted figs look as good as any prepainted fig I have used in the past.  My painting is not professional quality in any stretch of the imagination, but the effect on the battle field is good.  I like to think I "paint for effect" rather than detail.

I get to play WFB on a regular basis.  We have a GWS store near us that holds open gaming on the week ends.  We also play for position "on the board."  I believe GamesWorkshop has a name for it, but I don't remember the official name.  It's good to be able to play a mini-game again.  I was/am a huge MageKnight fan, but don't get to play at all anymore.

Kind Regards,
SlowDancer

I was thinking of Skaven or Orcs.  But I still need to finish out my 40K army.

I love Orks/Orcs. They fit my painting style and are easy to mod because anything works on them.
