Hi guys, I am interested in knowing how many models do you use in your commonly used 1850 pts armies.

This is to get an idea on the average number of models used in a standard 40k game.

So please share the model count of your lists!

Eldar:40-50 (that's with 10-15 wraithguard)
Necrons:30ish
Tyranids:70ish

I play a elite heave Raven Guard, Mech list. Current count is 37. 8 vehicles (1 Walker, 2 Flyers, 5 tanks ), 29 infantry. I am almost always outnumbered at least 2 to one in my games.

My most recent list: Tau, 63 at 2000 (so I rounded down to the next bracket).

But what's a model? A Fire Warrior barely counts the same as a Riptide, and a unit of six Fire Warriors aren't by any reasonable measure larger than a squadron of five Piranhas (especially if the Drones attached to the Piranhas are added in as well).

So I'm not sure what the poll will show, but you have my answer, for whatever it is worth.

With 14 votes in, the distribution is pretty much what I expected. Elite style armies are going to be around 40 figurines and horde armies are going to be around 70 figurines.

In the old codex around a 100 for DE. Space marines depending on what I was feeling like. Anywhere from 20-30 if I went elite and 60-100 for horde style.

I try to keep it around 50 models on the table at one time at the most in normal games. Any more than that, and it tends to slow the games down by a bit too much. Of course, that is why I use transports.

It is also why I am in favor of using a deathclock as in warmachine. If someone wants to bring a greentide, they can - but the challenge is for them to play efficiently with what they have.

Well, I've only played up to 1750, but that was just under 100 models.

6 HQs (6 from CCS and Chimera, 1 Lord Commissar and a Psyker)
10 Elites (Storm Troopers)
75 troops (3 veteran squads, Infantry platoon with PCs and 4 infantry squads)
3 FA (Sentinels)
1 HA (Leman Russ)

I'd like to use a lot more men, but this is about all the IG models I have right now.

150+ at 1500.

I play Orks, me.

GarDakka
18-11-2014, 11:58
I play Orks mainly. At 1500pts it's normally around 80 models. Once we get past 1750pts I normally take a least three full Boyz troop choices, that's 90 models right there. So it's easily 100+ models in a 1850pt game.

Boyz before Toyz. WAAAGH!!! :D

I have some sub 15 model lists I really enjoy, but on average I put 30-40. My usual games are pretty well rounded lists with a variety of models, I feel the average game will reflect that as well. TWC spam, dreadnought spam and MC spam are some of the lesser model lists I enjoy.

I'm one of those guys who likes small elite armies, funny enough my old 3rd ed deathwing had a huge model count with 31 terminators(including my HQ libby) and 2 dreadnoughts. now my model counts tend to be smaller with a bigger punch.

currently at 2K my unbound DAs has 14 models.

My steel legion come in around the 40-60 mark depending on if I yarrick or not. My chaos come in at 45 and they are the only two 40k armies I play at the moment.

I didn't vote because I play all over the place.

Lowest model count was 12 models at 1500 points (and zero wounds in the entire army - 9 Dreads and 3 Drop Pods).
All terminators usually comes in around 25 ish.
Power armoured wolves is 40-50.
30k marine force is 60-70.
Mechanicum is 20.

I don't usually play 1850, but if I were to guess:

5*5 Genestealers+Broodlords(Formation)

Allied Detachment:
2*5 Militarum Tempestus with Taurox Primes

1* Militarum Tempestus Command Squad with Taurox Prime

Allied Detachment:
1*Crimson Slaughter Sorcerer Lord(Genestealer Magus)
5*Crimson Slaughter Possessed(Genestealer Hybrids)

Main army:

Deathleaper
Lictor
Lictor
Lictor

2*5 Genestealers w/ Broodlords

So 70 models exactly, give or take depending on points. I'd guess pretty darn close to 1850, since that's close to my 2000 list.

1850 Mechanised Guard List (Roughly)

Pask + wingman, 2 Leman Russes

4 Veteran Squads, 40 Guardsmen

2 Chimeras

5 Ratlings

Hellhound

Valkyrie

Basilisk

Leman Russ

Vindicare Assassin

Leman Russ/Another assassin

Quite a low model count for a Guard list, but I have a pretty good all comers list. Pretty fluffy too. :)

About 65 models in my Guard army at 1500.

O_o

What are those 14 models?
Well...
Two tech marines with two servitors each, of course being techies they need thier rides so one is rocking a landraider Prometheus, and the other gets a landraider achillies. they get some fire support from three contemptor mortis dreads(dual ac, las and ceres assault cannons) who do double duty as anti-air if they stand still. a little surprise punch inthe form of two deathstorm drop pods upgraded to krak, because who doesn't like ten krak missiles fired at five different targets every turn. :D
Thats all topped off with my fine centerpiece bullet magnet shadowsword superheavy tank.

14 model, dakka(lots of dakka) for every situation and opponant type.
