Not sure if this is the right area, but it seemed to fit. Move if necessary :)

Was just wondering if there was anyone out there who (crazily?) has made an entire S.M company? Or dare I say it, an entire Chapter?
Yes, crazy I know, but I am curious :p

a person has made a whole chapter before (blood angels). i can imagine it took him a while.

PariahZero
26-04-2010, 19:22
i'd imagine so. I only ask as i have this crazy idea to build a full chapter, of my own design

I can put two battle companies, one devastator company, and the first company on the table.

Back in the day, GW used to sell entire chapters.

The advantage to purchasing the set was that it came with a Thunderhawk.

I know of at least one person who bought one.

I have the whole Deathwing Company, yes that right 108 Terminaors and counting..........10 dreads too.....

As well as the 5th Dark Angel Company.

Coming to warseer and asking if a major modeling project is crazy is like going into a psych ward and asking if anyone else can hear the voices: you're going to get a skewed opinion. :p

If you've got the cash, time, and patience, then I say go for it. Put up a modeling/painting blog so that we can see your spiraling descent into plastic addiction.

There are people out there with entire chapters, I know the 3E SM codex also displayed the entire Ultramarines chapter.

Now if only someone wanted to do an entire Imperial Guard regiment...Say along the lines of the Cadian 8th.

8,000 infantry, ~150 or so vehicles.

Awesome.

I'm sure there are full guard regiments out there.

some of them will even be 40k, not epic...

Insanity? No. Currently, I have the complete 1st, 2nd and 3rd Companies, along with 50 or so scouts. Recently, I've begun work on the 8th Company - about 51 brothers so far, and the 6th - 50 brothers to date. Have a gander at the 1st photo in the link: it shows the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 10th Companies before the creation of the 6th and 8th. Also more vehicles added since that was taken. Also missing is the Thunderhawk.

Here are a few shots of my Dark Angels army (the "Dust Angels", as the other guys at the store call it, due to the infrequency of their use). Not a full chapter... yet.

http://okcgaming.com/index.php?option=com_agora&task=topic&id=670&Itemid=54

That's an old series of photos. I've got about 40 more assault marines, 3 more land raiders, some vindicators, drop pods, more dreads, more land speeders, really just a lot more stuff in general.

And just so you know this sort of thing isn't limited to marines, here's an Eldar army for ya. ;)

He is Artur Szyndler. A herpetologist, he wrote also a quite nice roleplaying game. Currently GW rep.

When did he paint all his stuff? By commuting in our bleedin' slow trains. Oh, and he owns much more than just his chapter. :P

I've got about 3 companies worth of Crimson Fists, which includes a full battle company.
It's not hard to accumulate a few hundred marine models

IcedAnimals

The day I quit the hobby is the day I finish my Black Templar chapter. Every vehicle will count as 2 marines. I will then sell the entire army for a few thousand$

A few weeks later I will likely start the hobby back up again since I have spare cash. >.>

I have 2/3 of a Terminator Company, about half of a PA vet company, probably a dev company, half a company of scouts, and around 2 battle companies.

I did the same but ended up amassing 3 full chapters in Epic for the heck of it.

In 40k the most I've done are half the Deathwing, 1/3 of the Ravenwing and the 3rd company for my Dark Angels, plus assorted parts of the chapters armoury.

The thought of painting all that yellow... *faints*.

I am done collecting them till the new dex. Now I am nearly up to a battle company for my salamanders. Eventually I will want to get the 1st and 10th companies too. Then I'll probably save up for a thunder hawk.

I have an IF company (5th) with plenty of extras.
A buddy of mine who used to work at Brighton GW was well on his way to building a whole BA successor chapter.
Another mate has a full company of Crimson Fists, another a full company Dark Angels and yet another has a whole company of Blood Angels, but he cheated cos he bought the whole thing in a boxed set.

Somewhere over a whole company of Angels Sanguine

Actually easy to do when you used to get 30 marines a box. At least 2/3rds of mine are therefore RTB01's. Currently stripping down and repainting 10 mk14 bullock jetbikes to put add a couple of bike squadrons to the force

I had a full company of IP before I sold them off (long story).

One of the people at our local hobby store has three companies of Blood Angels, fully painted and with forgeworld shouldar pads and vehicle doors. He's working on the first company now. He ordered 50 sets of terminator shouldar pads when he started them. Along with the land raider doors for all his transports for them. He's mildly insane.

Beautiful army. It takes up two shelves in the local store's glass display cases.

I Intend to make a Word Bearer host roughly the size of a loyalist chapter, supported by a titan battle group and a mechanised batallion of guard auxilia, the core of which would be Colchis dragoons, the crews would have been changed lots of times but the tanks would be the same that ground xenos for the emperor during the great crusade... before he turned from his sons and betrayed them to the bureaucrats!

I've got a full company of SM (more, really) complete with rhinos AND drop pods for each unit, and additional support elements pulled from the Forge.
Several Company Captains (PA/TDA).
Several Chaplains (TA/TDA)
Command Squads (2). Choice of rhino/drop pod per.
6 Tactical squads (10) " "
2 Assault squads (10) " "
2 Devastator squads (10) " "

In addition to the following:
45 Terminators.
20 Bikers (inc 2 attack bikes).
5 dreadnoughts (1 ironclad). All with drop pods.
3 Land raiders
3 predators
3 vindicators
2 whirlwinds.
5 landspeeders.
40 scouts
5 scoutbikers.

Over 20 years of collecting them. Most of it was bought second hand.

I'd have more than that, but I like my eldar more (and they outnumber them by 2-1).

After 22 years of collecting stuff, a company of marines is easy.

I've been working on my Eagle warriors since 2005. I only consider the models that I have finished painting as part of my army. I have most of the 4th company now, I'm missing 2X tactical squads, 1X assault squad and 1X devastator squad, but I'm currently working on the assault squad and a tactical squad is built and ready for painting after I've finished the assault squad. I also have a spattering of squads from companies 1,6,8 and 10. Unfortunately I get easily sidetracked, so I can have months at a time where I work on my Eldar, or don't even do anything hobby related.

Ummmwell bought two of the SM battle companies when they came out. Over the years i did get something like 10 boxes of the RTB01 SM's 30 to a box had several copies of Space Hulk first time round and the expansions. So i have at least half a Legion i just don't collect my SM's as one army though i run 3 different Chapters.

30-04-2010, 10:06
I don't have a company as such, but I do have a coalition force of Blood Angels, Angels Encarmine, Angels Vermillion, Angels Sanguine, Blood Drinkers and Flesh Tearers.

While I won't post the army lists, this is the breakdown of statistics as of the new Codex...

Total HQ: 16
Total Troops: 16
Total Elites: 16
Total Fast Attack: 5
Total Heavy Support: 6
Total Dedicated Transports: 7
Total Units: 65

Total Space Marines: 222
Total Vehicles: 18
Total Allies: 12
Total Models: 245

Total Points: 12,337

And this is the second time I've done this. The first was when I was a much worse painter...

*chuckles*

I know that feeling. All metal Slaaneshi daemon army for WHFB (the ol' crab claws). I almost put my back out every time I carry it somewhere. :)

On topic - I've got half a DW company (all metal termies), an entire DA company (1/2 metal) and a few RW squads (including old metal speeders) to even things out.

Add to that the recently acquired WH army (muchos sisters) and I half expect my book shelves to collapse one day. :P

Am currently working on Ragnars Great company.
Seeing as they 'might be bigger' am at 170 power armored wolves , 20 scouts , 35 TDA wolf guard. plus all the Rhinos , LR's , drop pods and such.

Still not sure if its big enough :D

Then there is the other armies.

I know a person who got 3 Green Tides when they was for sale and i suspect her got more at a later date. Seen as he fields in large private games at least 15000pts.

Roll on getting my my Apocolapse Battle Company sorted out with a full 9 dedicated transports of Land Raiders.:p

I think I can do the entire ultramarines 1st vets company, 4th battle company, 7th bike and speeder company, 10th company, as well as a good chunk of the assault company and dev company. The motor pool is also well shown with 4 land raiders, 2 of each tank bar razorbacks which there are 6, 11 rhinos deathwatch squads, hq's galore and thunderfires.

I think I can maybe squeeze 2 companies out of my marines. I'd have to field only 2/3 of the 1st company in terminator armour though, the rest would be in power armour :(

My IG makes things a little easier - I can put at least 3 Leman Russ tank companies down (10 tanks per company, although an entire company is still new in the box so would need building first), an artillery company, plus at least 2 super heavy tank companies (3 Baneblades, 1 Stormblade + 2 Shadowswords, and I've still got a Baneblade + Macharius + Minotaur + Gorgon left over), and I should be able to field almost 1 company of mech infantry (including 7 Chimeras, 3 Hellhounds, 6 Sentinels, 5 Valkyries - 7 if I use 2 Vultures as proxies - , and various other support units) :D
