I don't even know where to begin counteracting the amount of Orkiness in this one sentence.

But I learned something.

From now on.

RED GOOD!
Make Buggy VRRROOOUUUMMM!!!

On topic:

For the Raven Guard i'd like to use many Dark Angels Nephilim Jetfighters and Vengeance Landspeeders made a bit more Raven-ish and stealthy. (I hope that fits with the fluff)

And Cybots for everyone! Should be fun.

For another 1000 i'd go with Chaos.
I like the crazed lava lamp wonderland that is the warp.

I like this question. For some reason, I fancy painting an army of Necrons or Tau, just based on their looks. I have no idea if they're any good, though.

Tau and Necrons are both good armies actually. Like... REALLY good.

Like with all armies it depends on what is taken and how they are played against the enemy are facing. They may have a few power builds that make it easier to win but if you don't use the right you could still end up defeated pretty early on.

With that sort of money I'd get a real Aspect Warrior army. The one thing that puts me off buying Aspect Warriors is the price and low numbers that you get, so I'd probably go that route. Or Orks. I've always had a soft spot for Orks.

Even SoB have good builds to be fair. (Immolator spam *cough*)

I agree with this point. Also... Aspect Warrior army? That'd be awesome!

I went with Biel-Tan for my Eldar, and the cost of the aspect squads is pretty shocking. I must have spent more on a few boxes of those than on all the troops for my orks. Of course, you do get a lot of bang for your buck (quite literally in the case of Fire Dragons and Dark Reapers) so it's not all bad.

I have won more tournaments playing Sisters of Battle than any other army.

SoB are really good. Only weakness is flyers. (Which aren't as bad in this new edition)

Quad gun. Vindetta. No problem. Or just ignore the flyers. But mostly the first two things I said.

I can't believe no one has said forgeworld - horus heresy marines! $1k (depending on currency) is enough to do a good force purely from FW!

Codex: Tau Manta.

Only need $500 more to get into it!

psh.  and yes Vindetta is Impguard.  So just take a command squad and some vets as allies and throw em in the back and you got a cheap scoring unit with a ride and a penchant for anti-air. Besides, having IG was part of the Witch Hunter codex before they changed it so I think of it kind of as normal to have them in there. Inquisitorial Storm Troopers if you recall.
