When the new Empire book came out, I found myself making an armylist that would encompass all the models I wanted to get. I did not think much about the effectiveness of the army, but almost exclusively on the models I wanted in it, while maintaining the look of a balanced army(and keeping it legal, rules-wise).
160 infantry, 15 cavalry, 8 characters(including a Beast wizard mounted on a horse), two pieces of artillery, a hurricanium and a griffon later, I'm at 3000 points(no magic items) and I do not feel like I have exhausted the painting and modeling opportunities of the Empire army(this is all theoretical, btw).
My Chaos army is about 2000 and there are still plenty models I want to add to it.
However, I have been writing lists to try to figure out the next army to collect, and many of them fall short of even 2000 points. My Necromancer VC armylist is barely 1500pts and I am out of units to add to it. In my opinion, Wood elves and Beastmen have similar limits.
So I ask, what army has especially large or small limits from an army collectors point of view?
This is of course extremely subjective, but lets discuss it.
