Listening to the latest TC Loose Warhammer episode and the guest posed the question: If you could only keep one army, which would it be and why.
Being me I don’t think I could choose just one but I’d probably be able to pick one if we subdivided it. For example:
Lore: This would be dwarves, I love their history and setting. Model range: Wood Elves. No question on this, there is something about the models all the way from 3rd to 8th. Playability: Probably the Beastmen. They are such good fun to play and making up little bits of narrative for Khazbar has meant that even losing just adds to the story.

What an interesting question...
If I had to choose one army to keep, I keep on leaning toward my Dwarfs, as they were my first army and I have the most fond memories of playing with them. However I'm also torn between my Greenskins, who I believe I've spent by far the most money building up, and my Beastmen, which are still a particularly fledgling force and probably the one I've been the most creative with so far.
No offence of course to my Lizardmen, High Elf and Skaven forces, I love you all really

Interesting.. I kinda like Da Stunties lore too as well as the Wood Panzees´ models.
But Orcs & goblins for sure. They are just too fun, fluff-wise and i love Brian Nelson´s stuff.. So much that I curretnly only have O&Gs and even though I might get some Stunties and Wood Panzees, again, it will never happen at the cost of my orcs (& Goblins - weedy gitz!).
"-Gork an´ Mork made da Gobblinz fer us ta kick, kill an´ eat. Dey is nothing, dey is less than nothing. Even dere magic is weak an´ pointless. Only use dey got in a fight iz katchin´ Humie arrows. Wiv der´ eadz..

My answers to this are predictably chaos warriors, chaos warriors, chaos warriors. And if I ignored them, Beastmen, Beastmen, Beastmen.
The question is really which chaos warrior army would I save?
My Nurgle army is the biggest but I’ve been painting Undivided and Khorne recently. Khorne probably takes it by a nose. Of the units I still have to paint for the three armies, I’m most excited to do the Khorne stuff.
I'll cheat and keep my Chaos army. Chaos Warriors, Beastmen and Daemons used to all be unified in one army. I still think of them as sub-factions of the same army.
Gun to my head if I had to choose one faction from 8th edition time, I'd choose Empire. They are probably the most diverse. Core units with access to all the major weapon options (swordsmen, halberdiers, spearmen, additional hand weapons, bows, crossbows, handguns). Also core heavy knights. Tons of artillery options. Wizards who can choose from any of the eight schools of magic. Cool fluff. Bright fun to paint uniforms. What more could you want?
