Just wondering how many armies people tend to have as I am currently thinking of finishing 2 more (OK and Lizardmen) since I have a handful of models for them already, /sigh, haha.

I'm too poor to afford more than 1

I have 2 armires, Lizardmen and Ogres, same as Halelel, although I have the skaven book and a box of clanrats...

Currently I have seven, six for Fantasy and one for 40K.
And I'm afraid that number is going to go up sooner or later.

Orks - 3K+
Goblins - 3K+
Snotlings - 3K+
Orcs & Goblins
Greenskins
:p

I have enough models to make 3000pts of Minotaurs lead by a Doombull, but haven't done anything with them...:(

I could likely field a few small forces of other armies, but wouldn't know where to start...:(

For the 40K oriented:

Orks, IG, SoB, Tyranids, Tau, Harlequins (DEWC), Marines

6 for fantasy and 1 for 40k and a plan to have all painted, well at least 3000 pts in each army

I counted hordes of chaos and beasts of chaos as 2 armies, I have:

10k+ hordes of chaos
3k+ of beastmen
6k+ of dark elves
3k+ of ogres
nearly 3k of skaven

I could technically say 2, but only since I've been playing since there were "good" guys and "bad" guys. Actually, that being said I have dwarves, Chaos mortals, Chaos Beasts, Empire, Orcs and goblins, Ogres, Dark Elves, Bretonnians, and of course, the obligatory Flames of war Africa Korps Brigade, a Battalion of British colonials, a raiding party of vikings, a small Celtic tribe, a company of 28 MM German Infantry, My son's space marines, my Chaos Marines, and tyrranids, but I digress.

Err.. I feel now like I've got almost nothing... :eek:
2k Lizardmen, 1.5K Asrai, and a few VC and Skaven..

I have a big O&G one (around 4k I think), a small DE force (2000 pts), and used to have a chaos army, but it's more or less "destroyed" (needed bits :p).
Also have a tau army in 40k (but played it so long ago I have no idea how many points it's worth).

16-07-2007, 10:55
I only keep one army at a time; if i am making another, i sell the last one to fund the newest.

I have somewhere approaching 7k of Chaos these days. I'm NOT an addict though...honest...

I voted 7 as it just wanted wfb.

3000 pts High Elves
2000 pts Dark Elves
2000 pts Tomb Kings
1500 pts Wood Elves
2000 pts Goblins
3000 pts Chaos
1500 pts Dwarfs

and if thats not enough I have just as many 40k armies.

then theres my SST armies, Warmachine, Urban War, Blood Bowl, Inquisitor.

I need to get out more

Capitán Sánchez
16-07-2007, 11:14
Dogs of War: over 8500 pts. About 90% metal models. I love this army. :)
Bretonnia
Empire
Chaos Nurgle
Chaos Slaanesh (only daemonettes)
Lizardmen
Ogre Kingdoms
VC's
HALFLINGS, yes HALFLINGS! :D

Have no time to paint, since I have a child.

Don't want to see Chaos Dwarfs in the future :p


Thank you

My brets are my only 'proper' army
my rest are more warbands

16-07-2007, 11:24
Wood elves, Empire and Bretonnian. I keep trying to not get an Ogre Kingdoms army - so far so good. I am very scared that when the next Vampire Counts set comes out that I'll go "OOh nice" and spend a couple of hundred quid on them...

Cherubael
16-07-2007, 12:23
Ive just started my second Warhammer army, after eleven years of playing exclusively Chaos Dwarfs ive decided to on a Lizardmen army - it will be good to play an army that i can expand easily.

For 40k i currently have two armies i regulary play with - Witch Hunters and Imperial Guard, with a third army, Blood Angels, sat in a box on a shelf gathering dust.

Two Fantasy, one 40K but I didn't count it in my vote.

16-07-2007, 13:02
They are all in my sig... and the smallest is 2000 points, the larger ones are over 13.000 points.

16-07-2007, 13:21
5 distinct lizardmen armies (2.25k each)
2 distinct vampire count armies (2.5k each)
1 orc army (1.5k)

I really like dark elves :)
though I voted 2 because I collected empire for 3 years, even though I've not used them since I saw dark elves. (and I did just sell a large portion of my empire to my bro's mate last night for £30 :D)

Hi

I have five currently - TK, VC, OK, Empire and Lizardmen.
I used to have O&G, Dark Elves, Brets, and Dogs of War

I also have 7 40k armies - Orks, Tyranids, Tau, Marines, Daemon Hunters, Necrons, SoB

I have one force for every specialist game

I also have Wolfen for Confrontation, Skorne for Hordes/Warmachine, and Germans for Flames of War.

Some might say I have a bit of a problem...

Cheers,
Carlos the Craven

Have got about 8000+ O&G, 4000+ empire, 3000+ DE, 3000* DoW and 2000+ VC. Only partially painted at all. And of course forces for 40k (Eldar and Tau).

I have 3:

#1 - Vampire Counts



#2 - Hordes of Chaos
#3 - Wood Elves

Although Hordes of Chaos was the second army I got, I think that Wood Elves are really my "#2" army, just because I think I enjoy them more than Chaos. But after finally experimenting with my Chaos list, and finding one I can enjoy, I was able to actually WANT to play my Chaos army.

But above all else, Vampire Counts remains my favorite army for all time! :)

1500pt of Chaos and 720 pts of DE :)

Muah ha ha ha! I am not alone! (Actually, I have more points than that, but I bought all my 51 orcs off my brother.)

Anyway... 3k-3.5k greenskins (2k+ goblins, 1k-2k orcs); 1.5k empire (gunline, but not too gun-filled...), very soon 5k more. About 0.3k Hoc, and just about to start Chaos Space Marines.

Looks and sounds a lot, but not really that much...

I can field Vampire Counts (+/- 2500 points), Ogre Kingdoms (~2250), Bretonnians (~4500), Chaos Warriors (~1500), Dwarves (~3000), O&G (~2000), High Elves (~2000) & Empire (~4000), plus a smattering of Dogs of War and bit and pieces of other armies. I gave away what Lizardmen I had to a friend who likes them.

I have way too many models to play as little as I do. Obsessive Compulsive Collection Disorder is a bad thing. ;)

However, GW will *not* be my beneficiary in my will. I like the miniatures, though they're overpriced and their most popular rule systems I find to be lacking.

They do show great promise with game mechanics they've developed in Warmaster and LotR though. If they'd start over and tear apart what doesn't work and redevelop their games, they could easily gain a lot of my affection once more.

Sorry, the quote and answer for it was lost in space:confused::D

Answer should be: We all have begone with few models. But it's fast advancing.
Don't worry.

About 2000 pts maxing it out, Goblins. And about 400 pts ogres.

I just have one, and it isn't very big yet since I just started playing in the last few weeks. That said, I am already starting tot hink about a second army once I have a better understanding of the game and my adversaries. Playing chaos now, thinking about skaven but a little leery of the magic issues with skaven.

Random
16-07-2007, 21:19
I am working on my Legion. :evilgrin:

That is to say that I have a full 2500 points of stand alone daemons. Plus about a 1000 of Mortals, and and starting in on some Beasts. So I have three, but really in reality just one.

I have thought about starting a new army, but make it be Khorne this time. I want to paint some red (one of my favorite colors to paint).

I sold off about 3.5k of Empire a while back, so that one doesnt count. :)

studderigdave
17-07-2007, 01:02
I have 2 armires, Lizardmen and Ogres

yup. i had a demonic legion and i started wood elves too, but nothing compares to these 2 armies, so i sold it all and kept these 2 armies. i have 3k in ogres, 4k in lizzies.

Crazy Harborc
17-07-2007, 01:22
I'm taking the easy way to say it. I do NOT play Skaven, Chaos Demons, Beastmen or Chaos Dwarves. I do play the rest of the armies. My least amount of points is in Lizzies (I started the army less than 1 year ago).

The armies I play the most.....Empire, Greenies, HEs, DoW, most played to least played....THAT was for a year ago until now.:D

der_lex
17-07-2007, 01:38
Two, about 2500 to 3000 points of Chaos mortals/daemons, and 2500 points and counting of Empire.

I'm praying that the new Vampire Counts models won't look too good, because I'd be sorely tempted to make that my third army if they do...

sephi
17-07-2007, 01:49
Now i only have 3K+ Orcs & Goblins, but i like wood elves\dark elves\vampire\skaven and chaos beastman...... oh i have 3K+ eldar too......

Halelel
17-07-2007, 07:44
I've been noticing something of a "trend" lately when it comes to two specific armies. Ogre Kingdoms and Lizardmen. Players almost always seem to have collected both of them, lol.

(it's weird cause I'm planning to collect both at the same time as well)

<insert Twilight Zone music here>

P.S. Oh ya, now I don't feel so bad having 4 armies compared to some other people, lol, :)

I currently have three armies, Dwarfs, Skaven and Goblins although my Goblin army is only about five hundred points in total with both my Dwarf and Skaven armies around 2000pts in total.

I am also working on my fourth army which is a fantasy Nurgle army for TOP. Which when finished, if all goes to plan should be around 2000pts when complete.

17-07-2007, 11:34
I am currently building my 3rd army, wood elves.

Earlier armies arfe vampire counts and dark elves.

For 40K, I am on my 5th army (and not one marine in there!) right now...

17-07-2007, 12:11
I didnt vote cause I won zero right now and have been playing with my buds, I love Dwarfs, Empire, and HOC a whole lot and looks like you can maybe add HE to that list.

So much addiction, so little money

Crube
17-07-2007, 12:12
Couple of different answers for me really...

I own 1, fully painted army (wood elves)

I am collecting and painting another (Middenheim Empire - SoC)

This will also be expanded slightly to make another Empire army (GW tourney legal)

I have painted 4 others - Undead, Empire, Bretonnian and Chaos Dwarfs

I dont like to keep hold of armies once I finish a second one - something to do with lack of storage space. Also, by selling iton, I can all but fund my next army...

Arguleon-veq
17-07-2007, 14:17
Chaos [4000 Slaanesh, 2000 Khorne, 2000 Nurgle]- 8000 Points
Dogs of War - 4000 Points
Wood Elves - 3000 Points
Orcs and Goblins - 2000 Points
Lizardmen - 1000 Points
Ogre Kingdoms - 1000 Points

So 19,000 points of Fantasy in total.

40K Stands at about

Eldar - 3000
Orks - 2000
Marines [Salamanders] - 2000
Chaos [Slaanesh Violators] - 1500
Guard [Armoured Company] - 1500
Arbites - 1000

I only have 1 WFB army atm since ive only started out (after a long run of 40k), my lovely pink disco warriors (chaos).

I usually stick to a few armies and expand them, or in the case of this chaos it seems to be going 1 army forever.

17-07-2007, 16:59

You are mad, but that doesn't change anything. OK, you're one of the few around who has more than me, but I have to ask how much of that is painted? With all of my painted Warhammer stuff I can put more than 25,000 points on the table, add to that another 5-6000 of stuff with primer and at least one base color, and another 10,000 or so that's basically untouched, but please also bear in mind some of my painted models are older than many of the actual warseer members.

BTW I've never won a best-painted award, though I've been in the close running on many occasions. and I never score less than a 9. This is primarily because I play with my models, so they do get chipped, broken, etc. Also, I'm lousy at doing eyes and lips.

not much of it is painted as i'm not much of a fan of painting (i can paint i just don't enjoy it much). so maybe about 11.000pts of it (including 40k)
