Dunno where to post this, but figured this was the best place since there were slightly similar threads. So, since I think I'm getting a job and, therefore, will have a stable income soon. As a result, I'm thinking about starting up a 3rd main faction to diversify a bit more and, well, for fun (always a choice, never a problem)! Currently playing Yu Jing with a focus on Invincible Army 'cause I love HI badasses and Combined Army focusing on vanilla, a touch of Onyx, and possibly some of the new Shas in the future when the models come out. As for the new factions I'm considering, I gotta say I don't like playing the absolute "best" factions out there. I know it doesn't apply as much in our game as others, but it's a pet-peeve of mine. I like playing sectorials/lists that are jank and/or unconventional but still workable. CANDIDATES: Steel Phalanx-Focused Aleph: Fireteam eat-no-more-tacos seems cool and I really like smaller lists of elite, high-tech, high-powered badasses. I'd probably run Hector a lot and the classical myrmidon + agema combo to snipe enemies ARO troops. Seems to have plenty of variety, too, with all sorts of enomotarchos leaders and whatnot. My forays into Vanilla would probably be rare, but I'm afraid Aleph will be too similar to my existing CA stuff. NCA or MO-Focused PanO: With the recent sectorial changes and upgrades, I'm kinda interested in the MO HI link teams and the NCA badasses like the Uhlans, Aquila, Locust, and Swiss Guard. Like Aleph, though, I'm kinda afraid these will be too similar to my IA and Yu Jing forces since I already focus heavily on units like the Hsien, Hac Tao, etc. Tunguska-Nomads: These guys seem cool, but I'm honestly only interested in the Tunguska stuff. Hollow men, kriza, and other elite troops, maybe Grenzers, Hecklers, the combat remotes, and the Zondnautica. Otherwise, not too into the Nomads and their models. Curious to know what you guys think and what words of advice you may have. As a small side-note, though. I'm not too into painting faces and would much prefer to be painting armor and helmets so bonus points for any forces that can be almost or completely helmeted.
