    Or you have to be lucky Which isn't that hard if you look around.

    I found an old store which sold stuff really cheap.
    I shared a box of 'Assault on Black Reach', which was 10 euro for a 600 point army: 10 tacticals, HQ, 5 terminator and a dreadnought.
    Then I got an old paintset, not the best quality but it did the job, with 5 tacticals for another 10.
    And I bought Sanguinary Guards for 25.

    So that's almost 1000 points for 45 euro.

    Yes, they are Blood Angels, Space Marines and Ultra's.. But with a little bit of fantasy and painting it's all from the same chapter within minutes.
    Today I will be picking up Dark Vengeace and increase the army to 1500 points for 'just' another 45 because I share those boxes.

    Total:
    1000 points for 45 euro.
    1500 points for 90 euro.

    Omg! Just saw the dark vengeance set today and it looks awesome! All the models are so detailed, but by brother who had first got me into WH40k said it wasn't worth the £65 price :/ Funny thing was that he played Dark angels and im Chaos :P Real pity though as it looks awesome but i'll be looking out for any cheaper prices
    Have faith in the light,
    And the strength of its weilders.

    I would have been playing eldar when I first started out years ago, but when I got into it, me and a close friend decided to get into the hobby together, and we intended to collect and battle together often, he was facinated with eldar, so for the sake of not having identical armies, I decided to roll with blood angels.

    I am really interested in eldar though, especially after collecting a tau army (there's fan theories about eldar influencing the development of the tau empire)

    Since you play blood angels, can you answer me this? Do you have to buy the Space marines AND the blood angel codex or just BA? Same goes for Black Templar, Space wolves, Dark angels and Grey Knights.

    I would have played Eldar if I didn't have Dark Elves army for WHFB. I wanted to play something ... different. Where you don't have to cry over each dead soldier. So, yeah, IG or Nids.

    I recently picked up 40K, and I got the Ork $120 box.
    Slowly been assembling them, the Trukk was a pain. It was the very first thing I've ever put together.
    I don't plan on buying anymore soon, or even playing soon due to not having the money, so I'm taking this slow instead of rushing to make all of the pieces and have them sit there.
    I also needs paints and stuff.
    It's so very daunting when you have such little money to spend...

    Been playing a few buddies of mine lately.....my best challenge has been my friends 1000pt black templar army. I take great joy in giving him the gifts of nurgle.

    Pretty sure you can get along with just the blood angels codex, I think, If I'm not mistaken (this was a long time ago) It covers all the rules you will need to know for a blood angels army, I think the same goes for dark angels, space wolves and grey knights respectively.

    Edit: recently came across a decent youtube channel for those of you interested in WH40k

    I do, love eldar.
    Also loved dark eldar till they dropped out of existence :P

    But like warhammer 40k mostly for the novels, not as much the game board although it is what got me started

    My roommate has Dark Angels, and when I am done with painting my army, I will be painting his.

    My god they were a pain to make before they made the most recent Tyrant kit. Had to use Balrog wings and it was a nightmare to get them to stick, not to mention the kit was metal so weighed a lot for such a hefty and yet delicate model.

    Given how this has turned into a general 40k thread rather than some blokes Eldar list, I thought I'd ask what you guy's opinion was on the new Angron model off of forgeworld?

    Given how it's the first Primarch model it's kind of a big deal.

    Old School Khorne Chaos Marine player here. Although Eldar were my first army. I haven't played in over a decade... the price keep going up, every year! MUCH better minis out there MUCH cheaper. GW USED to be the standard as far as minis went, but there are so many companies doing some great stuff now; Soda pop minis, Studio McVey, Corvus Belli, Privateer Press.... I could go on and on. Grats for getting into 40k it IS fun, but the scale and cost can be quite prohibitive for some.

    The Angron model looks amazing, but I cannot help have the feeling he, and the other Primarchs should be...bigger?
    They dwarf Space Marines almost as much as they dwarf humans, so Angron should be enormous, almost twice their size? There he just looks like a larger one to me.
