Like the title says: yesterday I picked up a Cryx starter, the older metal one. I got it second hand form a friend for 25 euros which ain't bad.
From here I am not sure what I will get next, but I know the models I do, and do not like. I like most of the warcaster models, and have read the power progression article in a recent-ish no quarter, which was quite information.
For the 25 point level I will add the Withershadow Combine, and two warwitches. I may drop a bonejack.
Models I like list:
Warcasters: All (but particular fondness for Skarre, gaspy, venethrax and goreshade)
Solos: Warwitch, Skarlock, machine wraith, satyxis solos, overseer
Warjacks: not a massive fan of bonejacks (though arc nodes are useful), I like Canker worm and most helljacks (new leviathan kit is really nice), Erebus
Units: Banes, Satyxis, mechanithralls, cephalyx.
I like Cryx, but not all the models are my cup of tea. I want to collect a different sort of army, as two other guys in the group are doing Cryx. One of them has the starter for Cryx, with Skarre, pistols wraiths, bane knights, darragh wrathe, and plans to get soul hunters. Another has epic Denny and is using nightmare and bloodgorgers, and also has the witch coven. So, I want to do something a little different.
