So, as a little personal challenge to myself I want to do a close combat marine army, so I'm looking at my options.

Do a close combat force with my alpha legion

PRO
-Already have some vehicles painted, included a land raider
-Army design is flexible enough to use whatever codex works best (within reason, alpha legion wouldn't ride on a thunderwolf or anything similar)
-Love the lore
CON
-Little bit over painting blue
-Doesn't really mesh well with established fluff, a tactical marine with bolter, bolt pistol and close combat weapon, yeah. A marine like the death company or khorne berserkers, no.

Do a world eaters force
PRO
-Get to use sexy forge world models
-Challenging paint scheme (white and blue)
-Can either use chaos or blood angels codex, death company=khorne beserkers and vice a versa
CON
-Challenging paint scheme
-I like the lore set in the heresy era, not so much in the current 40K, while I can change it for my army, it's still a bug bear
-Expensive

Do a Black Legion Terminator unbound army
PRO
-Get to use sexy forge world Justerian Terminators
-Abbadon is a beast
-Small elite army
CON
-Expensive
-Terminator armies, while bad arse, are very hard to use

Do a Night Lords Army
PRO
-Love the lore
-Get to use sexy forge world models
-Use warp talons as they are awesome (not the best choice in fast attack, but supported by a khorne lord with axe of blind fury (Sevatar) and a jump pack sorcerer rocking telepathy, I think they will do alright)
CON
-Little bit over painting blue, and I've never been good with painting brass
-Expensive
-There are a few night lords armies out there already

Do a Blood Angel Army
PRO
-Sexy new models
-Good rules for close combat marines (furious charge and +1I, yes please)
-Death Company, 'nuff said
CON
-Little bit over paining red
-Mine wont look as nice as Simons
-While okay, not a huge fan of the lore

Do a Space Wolf Army
PRO
-Thunderwolves
-Counter Attack
-Flexibility with drop pods
CON
-Hate the lore
-To me, a very uninspired paint scheme (yay, grey dry.gif )

Do a khorne army with the new codex
PRO
-New codex, with new formations and data-slates, should make for some fun combat rules
-Can mix marines and Daemons for the best of both worlds
CON
-little bit over painting red
-Not a fan of feeling like having to buy several of the new blood thirster model, as the rules seem designed to get several on the field
-Will most likely lack the flexibility of the Chaos codex in regards to options, Chaos codex I can have havoc's or obliterators (marked khorne), this codex, probably not.

40k/fantasy 'tournaments' are a joke really

Space wolf all wolf army.

Be brutal and some badass ####. Like the cover of a 80s power metal album.
