Hey there! I registered because I noticed a lot of posts I was reading that I wanted to comment on. This seems like a pretty cool community.
I thought it might be fun if you guys could help me choose a 2nd army (and maybe a low points list) for 40k. I won't say what I have already, I'll just tell you some stuff about me and general tactics I like to use.
In RPGS, I tend to play healers or support characters, and will sometimes dip into a class that is arcane and/or sneaky. In magic, I always play blue/white ("you can't hit me, I gain life") or green/white ("I gain life, my monsters get bigger").
In wargames, I prefer the late game attrition to alpha strike. My favorite tactic is to run up a tarpit (preferably buffed) in front of a flanking force. If the enemy attacks the tarpit, they get flanked. If they attack the flank, the tarpit moves up as a wall. After a few back-n-forth's, I retreat to cover or rush to objectives. From there I will chip away until they have nothing left to contest.
Just from this, what do you think I should (or DO) play?
