What is your play style?

Greatest show ever!
I'm sitting in the man cave looking at my shelf that holds my 40k armies. As I sit here, a little light pops on in my head. My play style was staring me in the face. I have been thinking over the last couple days on what type or "style" army is right for me. Most armies fall into one or two categories, shooty or assault. My play style was neither. For good or bad, my style has been and looks like will be, a hybrid of the two.

Looking at my Salamanders, Sister's of Battle, and Dark Eldar arranged on the shelves, I could see they all had a common theme or style. They all were about 75-80% shooty with a unit or two of assualtyness. I guess I never could buy into the 100% all shooty. I always like having that ace unit or reserve unit to throw into the fray. Why is this even important? Well, I'm currently in the process of building my Crimson Fists army. My current list is mostly shooty with guess what... a couple assault units. My list has a unit of assault terminators and an ironclad dreadnought. While this is not the best use of points, it fits my play style. I don't suggest anyone go out and copy it, but instead to look at what you like playing. Don't choose the latest internet list just because. Pick what plays to your heart and play the hell out of it.

But thats just my 2 cents.
