Just wondering what armies people collect.
I collect alpha legion, khorne, black templars, and tyranids

Brunificus
21-04-2005, 06:47
Dark Angels, and when the new codex comes out Nid's. I love their new models.

joebloggs1987

Sorry if i missed any armies, there are only 10 poll options possible.
Multiple choice is allowed aswell.

mostholycerebus
21-04-2005, 07:25
Thousand Sons, LatD, Imperial Guard, Blood Angels, and Space Marines. Every model I own can be used in at least two lists, and most of them in three or more lists.

Gwildebeast
21-04-2005, 07:28
Space Marines and Tyranids.
Diametrically opposed playing styles for variety, plus love the Tyranid models :)

The boyz
21-04-2005, 08:25
Imperial Guard and I mite start a Chaos space marine army soon, not sure.

hairyman
21-04-2005, 08:34
Eldar (alaitoc), Chaos (Black Legion) & Orks. Am tempted by 1k sons, but if I get another army it'll probably be fantasy, as that's turning my head at the moment.

Barbarossa
21-04-2005, 08:41
IG Praetorians, Daemonhunters, Witchhunters, Kroot Mercenaries, starting Thousand Sons.

P.S.: You forgot Witchhunters and Kroot in your list.

21-04-2005, 09:09

Orks, Dark Eldar (they're really underrated) and Tau

Salty :)

Drabant
21-04-2005, 11:05
Eldar (Saim-Hann) and Chaos (Emperor's Children). Even though I haven't even had the time to seriously start the EC yet.

devolutionary
21-04-2005, 11:11
Non-Traited Codex Marines and Non-Daemoned Chaos Undivided Marines. I play Marines, and I play Vanilla.

Scythe
21-04-2005, 11:18
Ahh, another army collect treat. Can't remember I saw one since portent died...

Well, for the list, I collect Tyranids, Necrons, Imperial Guard, and have a small detachment Daemonhunters.

Drong
21-04-2005, 12:21
Chaos (iron warriors(no tanks and only 3 oblies!)) and orks kult of speed, taking forever to convert them all >_>

sigur
21-04-2005, 12:22
omg, I just saw who started this thread. Well, on the other hand...who else could have started such a poll..... :p

Laspistol
21-04-2005, 12:25
Valhallan IG, Goff Orkz, and Word Bearers Chaos Space Marines.

One of these days I'll start Space Marines, Sisters of Battle or IG Drop Troops.

This is good, there are as many Guard Players as SM ones. Bravo and Hurrah!

mattjgilbert
21-04-2005, 13:49
Ultramarines and Necrons (aka Other).
Thinking about another one but nothing decided yet. Something without a 3+ save I think.

Scythe
21-04-2005, 15:45
This is good, there are as many Guard Players as SM ones. Bravo and Hurrah!

Unfortunately, a lot of space marine players have multiple space marine armies, while this is less frequent the case with IG.

A smeg load of Ultramarines, Grey Knights/Daemonhunters, Cadian Imperial Guard, Ulthwe Eldar.

A smeg load of Ultramarines, Grey Knights/Daemonhunters, Cadian Imperial Guard, Ulthwe Eldar.
I once had an all Grey Knight army. Here's how it broke down: (At the price I bought them at)

1 Grand Master and 4 Bodyguard - $50
5 Terminators - $50
4 x 10 man Grey Knight Squads - $120
2 x 5 man Grey Knight Teleport Squads - $60
1 Grey Knight Land Raider - $50
1 Grey Knight Land Raider Crusader - $55
1 FW Grey Knight Dreadnaught - $50

That's $435 for FORTY MODELS. My Ultramarine Army is more than double that and I've only spent $200 on it.

Anvils Hammer
21-04-2005, 17:36
I count 60 models in that list inq. Engel

I collect chaos (khorne), orks, tau and most recently imperial guard.

I'm also glad to see so many guard players.

joebloggs1987
21-04-2005, 22:35
Incase some of you are wondering, yes i am the person that created the thread in the old portent. Im back! :P hehe

Oh and to the person who said that i missed kroot and witchhunters, if you had read what i said before, there are only 10 poll options, so i had to put them in with other.

Captain Brown
21-04-2005, 22:40
I am just such a sucker for these threads. They are like that last candy that you just cannot pass up.

I have painted armies of the following:

Imperial Guard (Cadians)
Imperial Guard (Steel Legion)
Imperial Guard (Old Cadians – Cityfight)
Space Marine (Scout Army)
Space Orks
Eldar
Witch Hunters

Empire
Dogs of War
Dark Elves
High Elves
Orcs and Goblins

Xhalax
21-04-2005, 22:48
13th Company Space Wolves.

And i get the distinct feeling that normal Space Wolves and Nids are inevitable

Grand Warlord
22-04-2005, 00:23
For me currently:

Crimson Paladins (Space Marines)
Imperial Guard
Ulthwe Craftworld.

=][=Danek=][=
22-04-2005, 06:29
Space Marines.More specificly,Deathwatch.

Opus T. Penguin
22-04-2005, 06:54
Egads, it's getting ugly -- I've now got armies that cover eight of the ten options -- just missing Dark Eldar (might happen) and Tau (won't happen). Most of them aren't painted and ready to go, but I'll get to that over the next couple decades....

joebloggs1987
23-04-2005, 22:49
Im suprised that not many people collect dark eldar.
Hopefully when the new codex comes out, people will start collecting them.
So sick of marines...

Tyrannus
23-04-2005, 23:51
Dark Eldar
Necron
Thousand Sons (In Construction)

24-04-2005, 00:18
I collect Imperial Guard.....12th Cadian Shock Troops.

Fine bunch of lads, especially the tank-popping Basilisk. Managed to kill a Broadside, an Ethereal, a bunch of Firewarriors, an Exorcist and a load of Sisters, a Razorback, a Landraider and a couple of Ultramarine veterans in three games. Would have blatted Tigurius too if wasn't for his damn re-roll everything ability.

For my next army I'd like to do either Cityfight IG, Witchhunters or make my own custom Marine chapter.

The pestilent 1
24-04-2005, 00:21
a frag load of Chaos space marines: my own chaos force, pure Nurgle.
no idea how many points, but i have oh.. four, seperate daemon princes for differing play styles.
mosltly they just hit stuff though.

Lost and the damned.
mostly plague zombies.
i like plague zombies.

Witchhunters (ok, so i have all of about three models, but i'll finish it eventually)

Some tyranids (oh.. about 2000pts) my first army no less, in need of a good updating, just need to decide on a colour scheme

thats it for 40k armies.
(i also have fantasy lizardmen, a necromancers army (undead) and a Minas Morgul LOTR army)

anarchistica
24-04-2005, 01:08
Tyranids: 28 Genestealers, 30 CC Gaunts, 20 Shooty Gaunts, 7 Warriors, 5 Rippers and one non-flying Hive Tyrant.

CSM/LATD/IG: I am very Dutch, so most of the CSM and pretty much all IG can fit in with the LatD. Mutants/Traitors/IG, Sentinels, Nurgle Daemons, CSM, Bikers, 1 Land Raider, 1 Rhino and 1 Leman Russ.

I don't win alot. ;)

The pestilent 1
24-04-2005, 01:11
my usual chaos army constitutes as many plague marines and plague bearers as i can get into an army after the biggest, meanest daemon prince i can get.
i havent won since the new codex came out :P
except against my firend, but hes never beat me (good choices... awful luck.

Rabid Bunny 666
24-04-2005, 01:38

24-04-2005, 02:55
Almost 20 years of collecting chaos. Most of it is Rogue Trader stuff though.
Started eldar and almost have enough to field a well rounded 1500 point army with enough extras to face most enemies.
Not sure whats next...more chaos and eldar? new army altogether? new army usable with present minis....

joebloggs1987
24-04-2005, 04:00
20 years!!!!
Wow, thats a fair effort.

EVIL INC
24-04-2005, 11:34
Well, most of that spent playing. Only a few actually spent buying.

Khas
24-04-2005, 13:24
Started out as Eldar many years ago during 2nd ed. Some time after the 3rd edition Eldar Codex was released I grew tired of playing them and started a Space Wolves army which I have been playing since.

Recently I started out a Imperial Guard force that I realy like the feel of and I'm looking forward to complete a 1500pts army. Ultramarines are also a project that is tempting me at the moment :)

Lord Balor
24-04-2005, 13:31
Over Six years, i have aquired 3000 Blood Angels, 1500 Tyranids, 2000 Black Legion, 1500 Imperial Guard and around 1000 misc...To think its all worth as much as my car :(

big rock standing
24-04-2005, 20:52
Deathwing and 2 Nurgle armies. Nurgle look cool. deathwing just are cool!

clarkdobbs112
25-04-2005, 04:43
Tyranids (2500+ I'd say... and after the new crap comes out... I don't want to think about it)

Orks (2500-3000+... I can field 'em as Blood Axes, Ferals, Snakebites, Goffs, etc)

...and I told myself I'd only build 2 40k armies...

Praetorian
25-04-2005, 07:17
I am digging out my old beakies and doing Ultras over again.
I have 7 other armies already- some real big. Thought it better than to start something "new"- don't care for tau or the neckies.

Witch Hunter
25-04-2005, 21:49
Witch Hunters, Dark Angels, and Necrons. Contemplating an Alpha Legion or Saim Hann force as well.

I love the Xenos, but still am true to my original love, Black Templars... cannot wait for the new Codex.
I really want a Guard army after seeing that marroon and green army in the WD a few issues back, but I cannot justify having more.

Scabby
27-04-2005, 19:58
Saim Hann and 1KSons. Obscure beautiful armies. Gotta love 'em.

Thats quite a collection.
I can see that you like IG then ;).

Lord Icklebum
29-04-2005, 01:30
I've been playing just about 3 or so years (Got in just as Codex: Armageddon came out). And in that time I've amassed 1500 points worth of Space Wolves (Hey, newbies always go for marines first) that I need to find a way to rid myself of, being that I rather despise space marines these days.

My pride and joy is around 6000-7000 or so of Imperial Guard. With infantry in the hundreds. Ten tanks and about 6 sentinels or so. Nevermind the fact that in those 3-4 years I've only used sentinels maybe three times.

I've also just started in on orks and have a nice account, cobbling together a force through whatever models appeal to me foremost and then building out from there. I'll probably go with a Kult of Speed just due to my being a treadhead with the guard.

And one of these days I aspire to either scratchbuild a Baneblade or blow the majority of a paycheck on one. To hell with rent and bills anyway!

So, yeah, that's about it.

Space Marines (duh), Imperial Guard and some degree of Daemonhunter units mixed in with the Guardsmen.

Sometime in the future, I hope to play Eldar, a Genestealer Cult, Harlequins and an Adeptus Mechanicus army if GW ever gets there.

And although the Great Devourer will be descending upon me soon, I'll always be running with the Wolves first.

10-05-2005, 22:47
Am SO happy to see lots of other 1k sons players out there!
I thought I was all alone.

But I just love the converting thats needed to make a stand out army of them.

Other armies include:
Space Marines (own creation chapter)
Ultramarines (2nd and first edition ones not used for a very long time as I dont like being one of the masses)
1k sons
Genestealer Invasion Force (will bring them back with new broodlord rules)
Adeptus Mechanicus Army (counts as IG army, lots of conversions!)
Squats (yes, for shame, but I still have the bearded little guys)
Dark Eldar (who are now getting relegated to corpse and trophy conversions)
Orks (evil suns and starting work on updating speed freeks army when NEW plastic vehicles arrive)
And last but not least, some kroot mecenaries. (still in the fr@kkin boxes as I dont have time to finish them whilst the tyranids and marines keep my attention)

ANd if I missed any, well, we all know what its like to have many things on the go at once.

16-05-2005, 19:31

Shadowheart
23-05-2005, 01:47
Imperial Guard, lots of them. Mainly Tallarn and Praetorian, but also Steel Legion, plastic Catachans and both old and new Cadians. And with Necromunda Orlock models and IG tanks, my Lost and the Damned might as well have been another IG force.

I've got some other odds and ends too (including a Dark Eldar army), but the Guard are the main thing.

Keravin
23-05-2005, 12:34
3 Guard armies - Cadian, Mechanised Steel Legion, and Gaunt's Ghosts.
Witchhunters
Small Daemonhunter force
Dark Eldar
13th Company Space Wolves
and about 5 companies of Space Marines.

I've been doing this too long.

GreatWolf
23-05-2005, 15:00

1) Space Wolves
2) Ultramarines Excalibur: My own chapter. Similar looking to Ultramarines but with special rules.

GreatWolf
23-05-2005, 15:02
I also plan to do the following armies (in this order):
Imperial Guard (already started but put on shelf for now)

Pertinax
25-05-2005, 08:10
On the list above, I don't have Orks, or Dark Eldar.

To the list above, I can also add that I have a Witchhunter retinue that can be included in to the Imperial armies that I have, along with SM and CSM armies several times over, along with Necrons, and Kroot.

And some fantasy armies... and a bloodbowl team, a human bretonnian team... and I'm thinking about starting BFG, Mordheim and Necromunda... Gotta get meself a life.

The Pumpkin King
25-05-2005, 16:12
I have a fully painted space wolves army, half-painted tau and witch hunters forces and an emperors children army that will remain unassembled until I have at least finished painting the tau :p

27-05-2005, 22:45

Rick_1138
28-05-2005, 21:38
Full, painted and correct Ultramarines army, i think i must be one of the few who actually really enjoys the idea of the ultra's, especially with some of the new toys they're getting.
Can get about 2500 points, looking to continue expanding indefinetley.

Just started Eldar Ulthwe, though needs tweeking (read wraithlords, war walker squad, starcannons.....lots of starcannons and some rangers.

Toying with the idea of a demon bomb word bearers, because ive done the loyalist thing and am looking to have a little heresy with my fries.

and finally am looking to start a lizardmen fantasy army so i acn play both systems.

and thats about it.

Tune in next week for more!

29-05-2005, 16:12
I started my 40k career with Orks, but then moved on to Space Wolves.

After getting about 2000 points of each I sold my Orks and took up Tau.

Now I have a large Space Wolves/Space Marines force, a 13th Company army and a Tau army. It also looks like I'll be getting me a bunch of space-dinosaurs too. Damn GW for re-doing 'Nids and by extension emptying my pockets!

Kjell
29-05-2005, 16:17
Uhm, technically I do LatD. I've technically been collecting them since the EoT codex was released... I have had mixed success with that.

Considering that I have yet to actually paint a model. :o

Master Fulgrim

I myself have an old Ork army(I won't do anything more with it though till they redo the codex), Necrons, Tau, and am just finishin up a Daemonhunters army.

I'm planning on doing an IG army next, followed by another Daemonhunter army. I have an idea for a unique theme for each of them.

Black Templars and Imperial Guard are my main armies. Over the years I've had a go at Space Wolves and Biel-Tan Eldar. I'm just starting a Scythes of the Emperor force, and I want to do a Lost and the Damned army, a pure Tau mechanised force (no kroot) and an all close combat Tyranid force (no guns.)

30-05-2005, 01:52
Ultramarines, Chaos (Empires Children), some nids (just for the fun of it) and my brother is collecting IG... but I pay for it... :)

Samoth
01-06-2005, 08:10
I've got tau, about 1500 pts worth now, raven guard (space marines), probably close to 2500 pts at least (never counted them) and I've sort of started imperial guard, bought several boxed sets - but am waiting until I have the skills I need to really do them justice.

Owen rees has shown me up. Bastard stole my colour scheme, berets, and several other small ideas. I swear, it's like he reached into my mind, took my ideas, and used his skills to apply them better.

Dang it. :( :p

I got my most cherished Deathwing army and am currently painted up a world eaters force.

Once that force is complete I intend to stop buying wargames armies.

I've said it a thousand, bazillion times before, but I'm stopping.
Life is too short to waste painting little men. I've already used up 11 years of spare time painting the little guys.

* Jamaican Imperial Guard - about 2000 points at least....

* Eldar - somewhere around 3000 points.

* Space Wolves 13th Company - 2200 points (or similar).

Everything painted. :) I've mainly been playing the 13th Co. last year. Looking into using the Jamaicans again soon.

I thought that this was an appropriate place for my first post on the new boards. I lurked on the old ones, then joined up about 15 seconds before they went *phut*.

I'm the grown-up version of those kids who collect Ultramarines, the only difference being I never came to the point where I realised that they weren't cool and got something else. (It's actually because I can't paint anything that doesn't have lots of flat surfaces that I can cover in blue)

So for me - 2000ish points of Ultramarines

They look so cool, and I've heard in another topic there will be a new release in 2006....

Here they are quite on the rare side.... 65 votes of the so many... :) Better so my future opponents won't have any tactic against me... :)

Classic Tyranids (95% composed of 2nd. Ed. models) currently being re-painted. Alot...over 3000 pts.

Space Wolves being stripped and re-painted. Alot....over 2000 pts.

Biel-Tan Eldar. Alot.....3000+

Thousand Sons - Good amount. 2500-3000

Salamanders - close to a full Company of 120 Marines. Fills up the FOC, 4000+

Deathwing - Over half of the Company, 55 Terminators plus 3 Characters, I have been tossing the idea of building a smallish Dark Angels Force of around 1000 or so points. All Infantry, no vehicles. 3000+

Alpha Legion - Small force, being worked on, also can count this as a vanilla Chaos force as I plan to collect one squad for each of the 4 Cults. 2000 pts.

Tallarn Guard - All metal figures, a tiny minority is complete. Not sure how many points.

Plus I have enough to make gangs for all 6 Necromunda Houses, and with enough mixing I could play Genestealer Cult, Traitor Guard, DaemonHunters, Witchunters, etc....

I'm almost finished collecting a Cadian army; it just needs some bassies, griffons and a Chimera or two. A Salamander would be nice.

Currently, I'm collecting Nids.

Don't forget that Warseer probably isn't a proper representation of all gamers. That and a lot of space marine players tend to have multiple marine armies (at least more as people having multiple Eldar or Tyranid armies, for example).

Chaos Marines at the moment. First Army was Dark Eldar, got fed up with no support for the army, switched to Space Wolves, mutated that into my own renegade Chapter, turned that into a Renegade Chaos Chapter and I have the occasional Tau model. Its a Tau collection that I'll increase over time, not in one hit.

About ten years ago, in the days of 2ed, I decided I wanted to play something original, that few others played. So I got the Ultramarines Codex and started looking for inspiration for a chapter that was a bit off the beaten track, at first I was going for crimson fits, but decided against it, as I wasnt to keen on painting a gazillion fist symbols freehand as well as they were a bit too exposed. I wanted something slightly moreobscure, preferrably with an easy chapter symbol to paint.

So I picked the Black Templars.

Now I find myself excusing my army all the time with "but I've had them since second edition!".

At least they're painted 2ed style, with all black armour and white crosses.

Oh well, the new SM codex was truly inspiring, so if the new BT codex isn't completely to my liking, my boys will get a new chapter symbol and return to being a vanilla chapter.

Too bad I sold all my scout snipers and librarians. :(

Oh right... other armies? Only a smattering of orks since my gorkamorka days and some plans to add some witch hunter allies to my boys, with the option to expand them into their own army at some point.

I started with plain codex Marines painted with white armor and black shoulder pads with yellow trim. Their first vehicles were painted bleached bone. Over time I started playing them as Black Templars and repainted everybody with black armor and white shoulder pads with black trim. Their vehicles are all-black now.

I recently began collecting an Imperial Guard army. I've bought Cadians so far, but I want to add some Catachans for use as veterans, sgts, etc. I was drawn to the Guard mainly because I love tanks. The Marines don't offer a lot of affordable (points as well as $$$) tanks. I like the look of the new Predators and Whirlwind though.

I figure on getting some Inquisitors and other miscellaneous models to be able to use my IG and Marines as Witchhunters. All other development will be on hold until GW comes out with Alienhunters.

Like mine.

Where you have to plan the purchase of the house around holding the game collection. I'm so glad I married another gamer.... :evilgrin:

Hi there.

I collect these armies for 40k

Tyranids
Necrons
Imperial Catachans
Imperial Mordian/praetorian
Imperial Cadians
Four Imperial armoured companies, including Baneblade, tank destroyer, Vanquishers and various others and a mechanised company.
Deamon Hunters
Witch Hunters
Chaos Marines Undivided
Chaos Marines World Eaters including the FW Bloodthirster
Eldar
Dark Eldar
Black Templars
Blood Angels
Ultra Marines

I tend to collect the models I really like the look of as they come out for release, then I buy the codex's and play with them, so I'm a collector first and a Wargamer second, although I do love to play and so I run my own club from home, in a purpose built clubhouse 30ft by 20ft.

I have close to 20k in Guard alone.
Thats an armoured co., artillery co., mech. inf. co. and an inf. co, plus specalist troops not in the regular TOE.

I also have DH and WH contingents.

I play Goa'uld... seriously!

Use the Wargods models (Aser Spearmen converted into Jaffa) with a mix of Eldar, Necron and Warhammer Undead parts.

May take pictures one day...

Let's see:

Started with the Hive Mind. 2nd Ed with about 5000pts and still growing.
Next was Space Wolves have a full company with vehicles.
Then Praetorians (Gave them away to start another army.)
Then Cadian Imps: Don't know the size as never point costed them but if you use the standard FOC, I have about a full Company. (Yes a Company not a couple of Platoons. Comes from buying 3 Battle boxes a paycheck for almost 18 months.) Just wanted to see what it would look like.

Mechanized Company (Shared with IG)
Armoured Company with two Super heavies
2500 points of Ulthwe Eldar
2500 points of Harlequins (Rogue Trader models.)
Around 3000 points of Chaos Undivided
2000 points of 1k Sons
2000 points of Chorne
1800 point of Iron Warriors
8000 points of Orcs
3000 points of Speed Freaks

Now Sad thing is is most of these are unpainted as I like the game and just really don't put in the time to paint.

Just picked up the new Big Box o Nids and have to say they is so loverly.

I was born a 'nid player, and in all likelihood, I’ll die one too :p

I started way back in 2nd ed, stopped playing in mid 2002, but since the release of the 4th ed ‘nids induced my to cream my shorts, I'm back building another nid-tastic army.

Oh, and I've also got a small Tau army that I wheel out from time to time.
Talk about polar opposites.

A neutral shade of black.

Woo, I'm another Tau player.
First army I had, still the only 40k one. They've been through quite a few changes (in fact, half the army deserves to be thrown out and rebought), but I'm still sticking to them.
I also dabble in dark elves, and (to my great shame) I've found that I decidedly like Lord of the Rings models - enough to get into the game.

Well in 40k I play Necrons and Tyranids and I have an old Word Bearer force that I doesn't use anymore...

EDIT: wow, over 50% of all players here plays Space Marines...

Tyranids, or atleast I used to collect them. I have about 2000 points of them laying around but I haven't done anything with them for a long time, got tired of painting all those gaunts. :p

After that I started on Fantasy Lizardmen for the change, of wich I also collected quite a force but eventually felt like I enjoyed 40k more, and thus my plans for a CSM Emperor's Children army were born just a week ago.

No real surprises there. Most people start 40k with marines anyway, and I think if you look beyond warseer, there are way more space marine players out there as this precentage suggest.

I started collecting 40k during 2nd edition, at which point I began my long and continuing attraction to the Thousand Sons, which was quite a task in itself since the Thousand Sons range of models=1 :p .

Now I have 5000 pts of Thousand Sons (Not including my early converted Bezerker Rubric Marines, I'd die a happy man if I never saw green stuff again :rolleyes: )
Which makes me unique in Perth as I've yet to come across another, but I know there is another Sorcerer's Kabal out there somewhere.

I also have a 1500 pt Kabal of the Black Heart and a small pre-codex Necron army (don't those old Immortal's look cool?).
I'm now just beginning a Night Lords army.
