1G Update: Input Appreciated!
I'm thinking of doing, 2 Armies from Scratch (yikes), and 2 Armies utilizing existing models.
Armies I am leaning towards:
Already Have (incomplete, what I have):
Chaos (Codex, I have alot of chaos models)
Orks (Codex, tons of models, alot on sprue)
Space Wolves (Codex, tons of models duh)
Black Templars (Codex, tons of models)
Lamenters (BA Codex, have the Marine Battleforce)
Tyranids (Codex, Box of Termagaunts)
Only issue is cost. I spent some time in Army Builder, and the cost involved with doing two Armies from scratch (Tyranids and Marines), is pretty high. So figure I have a couple of options:
1. Stick with the plan, do two from scratch and rely on Ebay and other outlets to get cheaper/used models.
2. Only do one Army from scratch, and swap out either Nids or Marines with Orks.
I've been browsing Ebay to see my options, and have $52 left on an Ebay gift certificate, (just spent $23 of it on another droppod already assembled).
Good thing about Ebay is the ability to get used models preassembled, bad news is alot are primed or painted. I obviously won't have time to strip models.
