I'm one of those players with faction ADD. I started at Trollbloods, then discovered Pirates and the rest of the mercs. I dabbled in Menoth and Skorne after selling off my trolls. I sold off my menoth and skorne and got into cygnar. I loved mercs because of the character and I loved cygnar because I felt I could make any army I wanted (lots of jacks, or lots of range, or lots of melee, or a balance) and I liked almost all the models of both mercs and cygnar.
However, I moved to South Korea after college and sold off most of my collection before going. I figured I wouldn't be playing much since the closest group seemed to be in Seoul and I'm in Busan (opposite ends of the country). Anyway I've finally found a small group of Koreans to play with and now am faced with the choice of either starting a new faction or reconstructing either cygnar or mercs (highborn most likely).
The scene here is 2 Menoth, 2 Cygnar, 1 Khador, 1 Cryx, 1 Retribution, 1 Circle, 1 Trolls. No Everblight (surprisingly) or Skorne, and I've been told theres a possible 2 more khador and 1 merc in the future as secondary factions for some of the players.
Thats a long winded way of asking for advice of which to do. If I started on a new faction I think it would be Everblight because I like the warbeasts and it seems to have a good balance of range and melee like cygnar and I wouldn't have to play against the same faction. OR Khador because just about every model I feel I would enjoy painting and I like the man-o-wars. Or Circle because its a completely different playstyle than I'm used to and I think it has mostly great models.
Has anyone else had a similar situation? getting out of the game then buying back in? did you start a new faction or did you go back to old familiarity?
