Welcome thanks for coming to the boards!!!
I believe we talked briefly at EGC the other day.
As far as finding something that people do not play just to have something different, I would discourage that personally.
Mainly because there is probably a reason why people don't play the army and it may be for the reason why you may not enjoy it.
Instead look at the armies see what interests you and start there.
I'll list some Regulars to the game or at tournies in Cincy below and the Armies they use that I can remember each may own more armies:
Dave Ewen: Vampire Counts; has High Elves & Ogre kingdoms too
Dave Crobar: High Elves, Dark Elves
Sean Witten: Building Tomb Kings
Brian Seabolt: Orc & Goblins, Skaven,
Ronnie Marcum: Vampire Counts
Jon "QuickFuse" Bretonnia
Jon Pittman: Skaven
Meredydd: Orcs & Goblins
Josh: Chaos Warriors
Jason: Bretonnia, Lizardmen
John G.: Orc & Goblin
Joe Schmidt: Vampire Counts
Joe ???: Dwarves
Clint: Demons, Beastmen lol
Randy:Orcs & Goblins
Sean Makari: Orc & Goblin, Empire, Wood Elf, Bretonia, Dwarf, Chaos Warrior, Demons, Lizardmen,
I'll see you this weekend I'm sure and we can discuss more then!
The footprints made in the sands of time are not made by sitting down... Unless your playing Warhammer WAAAGH!
New times calls for new Records:
Orcs & goblins (3-1-2)
Imperial Guard (0-0)
