View Full Version : How many Armies do you play?

05-04-2008, 19:08
topic is pretty straight forward how many fantasy armies do you play and what are they?

Currently i was thinking about it and i have alot
I currently have 7-8k of skaven
3k of high elves
3k Of khorne mortals/3k of khorne minotaurs
1000-1500 points of vampire counts from 6th ed ( probably updating them soon once im done painting my high elves)

So curently im rocking 4 different armies

05-04-2008, 19:13
4k Bretonnia
6k Dark Elves
4k Vampire Counts
3k Empire

05-04-2008, 19:22
I voted 4, but itīs more like 3 full & 2 half armies:

12K+ pts of Chaos (w.out any characters cost involved)
2500+ pts of VC (depends on how I kit out my characters & how many troops I spare for raising, but I normally play 2250 pts games w. an allcomers list which doesnīt change a whole lot)
2250-2500 Pts of Gobbos (can use my Chaos giant as a normal giant)
500 pts of Lizardmen (Bought & painted for 2 small warband tournaments, sees some use now & then when we play small games)
I also own various DoW units for a total of over 1000 pts, but not enough to build a good army...

05-04-2008, 19:26
I play 4 armies. Dwarves (my longest used and loved) Bretonians (I just could'nt resist them) Night Goblins (Im tired of using tactics I just want to throw wave after wave at my enemy ;p) Ogres (I just went on a splurge)

05-04-2008, 19:28
3K Brets

05-04-2008, 19:53
3K Empire (have abit more but only 3K painted)
4-5K Greenskins (could proably get even more points, but I'm to lazy to count them atm)
1K Lizardmen (this is just an expansion to my brothers force which is about 2K)
1K Ogre Kingdoms (I usually use these as DOW's, more often than actually plaing OK anyway)
2K Dark Elves (Alot of it is still unpainted though... :( )
2K Vampire Counts (Will be at least 2,5K when i've painted my new Blood Knights and Vampires)
2,5K Khorne Chaos
2K Nurgle Chaos
1K Slaanesh Chaos
1K Undivided Chaos (not yet painted, if you're wondering where the tzeentch are, well my brother has a 2K Tzeentch army, which I've painted)

In 40k I have a 3,5K CSM Army, nearly everything is unpainted though.

So that puts me in the 9+ category unless you wanna bunch up all my Chaos into a single army.

05-04-2008, 20:10

I have.....

~1k of unpainted Empire
~2k of Dark Elves/High Elves currently in assembly.
~3k of Ogre Kingdoms. Fully painted
~3k of Wood Elves. Maybe 500 pts painted
~3k of Dwarves. 2k painted
~2k of Vampire Counts unpainted
~5k of Orcs and Goblins. Unpainted (sigh)
~2k of Tomb Kings Unpainted
~2k of Hordes of Chaos (half painted)

I have enough painting to last me till I'm dead now.

05-04-2008, 20:27
i have whats in my sig, but i only voted for 3, as thats all the fantasy i have

05-04-2008, 20:42
I voted 4: O&G, OK, DE and VC; but really, my DE army can't really be called an army yet, and I rarely play the undeads.

05-04-2008, 20:49
I have about 500 points of Brettonians, not sure if that counts or not but I voted for one army.

05-04-2008, 21:04
I'm on 8, I have 10 I think but I havent used 2 of them yet.

1K Lizards [Not used],
1 K Ogres [Not used],
1.5 K Dwarfs,
2K Empire,
2K Khorne,
2K Nurgle,
4K Slaanesh,
2.5K O&G,
2.5K Wood Elves,
4K Dogs of War.

With my Chaos models I could also make a 2,000 point Beasts army. Im thinking about Undead & High Elves I want to finish my Dwarfs and O&G first though. Maybe get a lil more for my Empire and Wood Elves.

Only my Chaos is anywhere near fully painted.

05-04-2008, 21:51
Just starting the hobby, so my 1000pts of chaos is all I have, but that is on it's way up.

05-04-2008, 22:04
3.5k Chaos
1.5k Empire
I'm quite proud to keep it at 2 tbh, considering that most people at my club have at least 3....*cough, BARKLEY, cough*

05-04-2008, 22:25
Do you mean play or own? Because I own armies I don't play.

05-04-2008, 22:31
Just the one for WHFB, and I'm a Stillmanite with this army (ie - it's planned, built, (part) painted and unchanging in make-up). With 40k, I'm much more pick'n'mix, but for WHFB, I prefer using armies like this.

05-04-2008, 22:50

It's about 8 for me (from oldest to latest):

Chaos Dwarfs
Nurgle Daemons
Vampire Counts
Dark Elves
Night Goblins
High Elves

05-04-2008, 23:05
4 armies

4k or so High Elves
3k of Brets
???? or Hordes
???? or Orcs
2k of Demons... soon to be more

05-04-2008, 23:09
High Elves (my largest and grandest at over 4'000pts), seconded by Dark Elves ('bout 2'500pts). After that, I could field various sized armies of Hordes of Chaos, Empire, and Dogs of War. I've got plenty of miniatures from a number of other armies, but those five are the only ones I could actually field at least a 1'000+ pt army.

05-04-2008, 23:12
I own 2 currently, 3000 points of Ogres and 1000 of Dwarfs. The Dwarfs are slowly but surely getting built up though. (Still got another 168 quid to make it to 2000... ouch)

05-04-2008, 23:20
points at sig

05-04-2008, 23:36
4K Vampire Counts
3K Dark Elves
1K Empire
1K Chaos Mortals

Empire and Chaos are bolt-ons really to VC and DE respectively for unofficial games. I rarely play them alone.

05-04-2008, 23:40
5000+ Dark elves
3500+ Dwarves
3000+ Tzeentch Mortal
3500+ Beasts of Chaos
3000+ O&G
2000 Empire

06-04-2008, 01:17
i voted 5..
i've got Dwarfs more than anything else, about 7.5k now and i play them since V edition..
then i used Bretonnia in V edition too, but in less games, and i pretty forgot them in VI and VII..
I moved on empire (about 2250 points,), greenskins (about 2250 pts of goobos which i just started painting, and 2.5k of orcs), tomb kings (barely a 2000 pts army, but not so flexible) and for my ex girlfriend i bought and let her play Lizardmen (about 2200 pts)

in average i can say that on 100 games i played 70 times with dwarves, then 15 with greenskins, and other armies just seldom, maybe lending them to friends which wanted to play against me..

if i just think about the price of that stuff, must only thank the e-bay's god ;)

06-04-2008, 01:21
6k lizardmen
4k ogres
3k wood elves
2k slayers

06-04-2008, 01:28
About 3K Vampire Counts and over 3K Orcs and Goblins.
If I actually had the time to paint stuff I'd fancy starting a new army (probably Chaos Mortals or Daemons).

06-04-2008, 01:34
2000 eldar
3000 high elfs

Empire, Dwarves, Orcs and Goblins, HEs, DEs, WDEs, Brets, Lizzies, VCs, TKs and DoW/RoR. The Lizzies and the TKs are approx 2500 to 2700 pts worth. All the other armies are 3000, to 4000 points worth. Empire and the greenskins are 6000 to 8000 points worth.;)

4k Ogre Kingdoms
3k Vampire Goblins
5k High Elves
4k Lizardmen
3k Dark Elves

Far too many unpainted, maybe one day they will be all painted.

06-04-2008, 08:53
Me alot of small ones but my main -dwarves:D I have abit more.

1. Dwarves: 2000pts+ 300pts of Drunken Leadbelchers and Bulls as DOW.
2. Empire: 1500
3. O&G: 1300 or so
4. VC: 500
5. Chaos Mortals: 400

I think i should expand on the smaller ones though.

06-04-2008, 10:24
Two armies... High Elves and Bretonnia... still currently trying to decide what to do for a 3rd.

06-04-2008, 10:35
to some, 4, to others 6 (especially with the new daemon book being released)

around 10k mortal chaos
2.5k chaos beasts
1k chaos daemons (more at the end of the month)
6k dark elves
3k ogre kingdoms
3k skaven

06-04-2008, 10:46
All except HE i.e. 17 armies.

14 of which are about 3k or more

Chaos Mortals
Nurgle, Daemons
Khorne, Daemons
Dwarves (plus KK Slayers)
Tomb Kings

1k of Ogres and about 500pts worth of Beasts and Brets

06-04-2008, 12:47
One: around 2500 points of tzeench mortals.
I might buy into daemons when they are released though :)
Although I also bought a second hand chaos marine army and have LOADS of LoTR stuff...

06-04-2008, 13:03
5, including 40k. see sig.

06-04-2008, 13:03
Voted 4 for WFB. Including 40K it would be 9.
A bit over
8.000 points Dogs of War
4.000 points Tomb Kings
3.000 points Dwarfs
and (if in the mood, using my surplus DoW models) 3K Empire.

plus 40K:

7500 points Mordian Imperial Guard
4000 points Deathguard
4000 points Dark Eldar
tiny 1500 points World Eaters
and even more tiny 1000 points Orks.

06-04-2008, 13:15
err, less Chaos Dwarves (the hats just don't do it for me) I have them all. Virtually all painted it goes something like this:

Dark Elves - 3 -4000
High Elves - 2500
Wood Elves - 3500
Empire - 3000
TK - 5000 (two armies)
Brets - 2000
O&G - 3000
Undead - 5000 (three armies)
OK - 3000
Dwaves - 3500
Beast 1000
Chaos - 3500
Skaved - 2500

The above lists is not complete and the originator reserves the right to change his mind on numbers allocated.

06-04-2008, 13:22
I have 5000pts of Dark Elves and 2800pts of Slaaneshi Beastmen

Power and Destruction in the name of the lords of the Druchii

06-04-2008, 17:26
3k skaven
3k vc
4k tk
2k chaos dwarfs
all painted

07-04-2008, 07:42
2,000 bret
3,000 HE
3,000 O&G
1,000 space orcs
2,000 tau
500 LOTR

07-04-2008, 08:40
Presently, too many.

I have a good 3000 points of Lizardmen,
1500 points of Tau,
1700 points of Skaven,
750 points of Orks
plus 1300 (approx) BFG Tau (forgeworld)

Though I am looking to part company with some of it. The Lizardmen don't insipire me anymore, so I'll happily sell them off a bit at a time or all at once, same for the Tau, but I only need to find a buyer for about 40 Kroot, 1 Shaper & 2 Great Knarlocs, plus the fleet, 2 Custodian Super Carriers, 2 Protector Crusiers, 6 Warden Escorts and 2 Castellan Destroyers.

Tell me how well does the trading forum work?

07-04-2008, 09:13
I have one and a half armies

Orcs and Gobblins: roughly 2.5k points

Dwarfs around 700 points.

My wife whom I just got into the hobby has around 1000 point Bretonnian army.

07-04-2008, 09:27
Vampire Counts and Bretonnia, but most of the time it's been Vampire Counts ever since the new book came.

07-04-2008, 15:13

I have five armies altogether. Two are completley painted, one is half painted and the other two are, more, side projects at the moment, so havent got much attention from Me or My paintbrush for a while. heres the list:

2K of Dwarfs, fully painted
2.5K Skaven, fully painted
1200pts of Nurgle Mortals, 60% completed,
750pts of Goblins, 10% completed,
750pts or so of Empire, 0% completed.

09-04-2008, 01:04
Just the one (High Elves) It's expensive enough as it is!

09-04-2008, 01:40
As mentioned in my earlier post on this thread.....I have lots of painted goodies for all my WHFB armies. I have been collecting and painting them for decades. I am a low-key painter, I paint to relax. My troops look good on the table top. I do not paint to a pro level.....It has and does work for me.:D

09-04-2008, 03:20
3k Empire(Cult of Ulric)
4K Bretonnia
2.5K Dogs of War

09-04-2008, 03:21
Two armies... High Elves and Bretonnia... still currently trying to decide what to do for a 3rd.

Same here. Tempted to look into Druchii when the new book comes, or possibly Hordes. Need something nice and evil to contrast all that shining virtue hahaha.

09-04-2008, 03:31
I play three armies currently, I have:

6000 points of Dark Elves (my first ever army)
4500 points of Chaos mortals/beastmen
2000 points of Skaven

All are completely painted though I plan on adding more stuff when the new army books for these armies are released.

09-04-2008, 04:18
4k Lizards
2.5k Dark Elves

09-04-2008, 06:47
I play two fantasy army; Tomb King and Vampire Counts. While the VC are mostly in rebuilding/repainting stage, I still have around 3k without characters.

09-04-2008, 07:16
2000pts HE
2000pts WE
2000pts Orcs and Goblins
1000pts Empire
500pts Dwarves

I really only focus on my elves though.

09-04-2008, 10:28
Empire 5000pts
Ogre Kingdoms 3000pts
High Elves 2500pts
Wood Elves 2500pts
Skaven 3000pts
Tomb Kings 2000pts
Dwarfs 2500pts

My most recently used armies are Ogre Kingdoms, Dwarfs, Wood Elves. Skaven are badly in need of a repaint ( think 'old skool' Red claws! ) and the Tomb Kings need some TLC ( i.e. loads of glue...they suffered some damage )

09-04-2008, 20:32
By the by.....I am getting rady to do a body count. Last time (years ago), I only had 2000 something worth of models/minies. This time it will likely be around 4000 minies.;) I should count what's awaiting assembly and painting too.

Dark Empire
09-04-2008, 23:51
4000 pt. Ogre Kingdoms
2K-2500 pt. Empire
2000 pt. Lizardmen

Dark Empire
09-04-2008, 23:55
I started collecting Ogre Kingdoms models last year because I thought they "looked cool". Since then I discovered a few players in my area and now starting to learn to play. I just started collecting Empire a little over a month ago and almost my entire Lizardmen army was GIVEN to me- So I ended up with a lot of figs really fast. I don't believe I'll be getting bored any time soon.
