View Full Version : What armies do YOU own(ed)?

18-04-2007, 04:35
I know I'm kinda copying the whole "favorite army" thing but I was curious whether the whole 75% of GW players own marines is correct. So list the armies that you collect/play. Thanks for helping me realize my lifelong dream of becoming a 40k statistician:)

18-04-2007, 04:40
okay, 40k wise: Tyranids, Imperial guard, Space marines, Witch hunters, Daemon hunters, Orks, and Necrons. Phew!

18-04-2007, 04:40
Yep, I'm part of that 75%...
Marines - Dragon Lords
Imperial Guard - 117th Vogan Legion
Chaos Marines - Night Stalkers

Ogre Kingdom

18-04-2007, 04:45
so far imperial guard, black templars noise marines and starting of a ork patrol 400 points

18-04-2007, 04:46
Imperial Guard & Chaos Space Marines.

18-04-2007, 05:03
Hey, Necrons aren't on the poll. That'd be another...

I've got Eldar, IG, Necrons, Tyranids, Marines (Blood Angel models, but probably not going to make them Blood Angels, per se), with some Daemonhunter & Witch Hunter allies. I fear the day the Orks get a decent codex, cuz I'm sure I'll have to buy into them, too. :)

I own models of something from every army except Tau Necrons and Eldar.

18-04-2007, 05:12
main army are nids and on the other side of my miniature storing place are ultramarines..

18-04-2007, 05:15
I own marines but also Eldar, Orks and the currently missing from the list Necrons. There's no point in me voting since 25% of my armies aren't listed and this isn't the first (or last) poll of this sort that I will see.

Dabbled in all of them except Necrons and bugs, unless you count Space Hulk.[dice0]

18-04-2007, 06:39
Just see my sig for my armies

18-04-2007, 06:47
my first and still main army is a 3000 pts cadian force. from that i moved into a 1500 tau army that had already gone to a new home. after that i started on a 1700 pts word bearers army that i'm still working on. i also had a 1600pt vostroyan army that has passed on to a friend. i kept most of the vehicles which have organized into 1000 pts of armored company. i also have 1000 pts of witch hunter i haven't done much with.

- The notion of 75% Marines includes all factions of Marines, so the CSM, vanilla, and spec Marines should all be under one choice. Lastly, Inquisition includes Daemon Hunters, which are predominantly SM's. Should be swapped to WI's/SoB, IMO. If we consider it like that, then of the 26 people who have currently voted, 49 play SM's or some variant of it (wtf?)

18-04-2007, 08:43
40k: BT orks IG

Fantasy: Ors and goblins, Ogers, Beasts of chaos

18-04-2007, 10:07
I have had minis for everything apart from Tau, though I've only had armies for the major Imperial forces, Red Corsairs and Thousand Sons

The Dark One
18-04-2007, 10:57

18-04-2007, 11:22
Started out with Dark Eldar but after collecting some 1800 pts or so i got tired and sold it all. Now i'm on the roll again with CSM World Eaters.

18-04-2007, 11:37
Guard, Guard, More Guard :D

The Laughing God
18-04-2007, 11:44
I got Dark Eldar, Necrons, and Tyranids!

18-04-2007, 12:46
I have a feeling the 75% marines includes all the young kids, who are more likely to have marines, and are less likely to be on here.

As for me, the true soldiers of Humanity, be they only men, the Guard.

Captain Micha
18-04-2007, 12:52
You left out my necrons!

but yea
and crons.

18-04-2007, 13:02
I've been playing for seven years, and all i've had is guard. I allmost bought an Ork army, but im just gonna do a second guard one instead.....

18-04-2007, 13:09
Tau and Dark Angels

18-04-2007, 16:11
I use the daemonhunters, but i sometimes use then with some imperial guards men.


18-04-2007, 16:31
Orks, Tyranids, and Dark Eldar. I've got a few models from most armies, but those three are the only oncs I'm able to stick with for whatever reason.

Lord Balian
18-04-2007, 16:44
Mostly chaos, but just started Da.

18-04-2007, 20:08
Eldar, Tyranids and Iron Warriors. Used to have Space Wolves, got bored, got rid!.

18-04-2007, 20:32
I have owned Ultramarines (2nd ed) and Word Bearers, but now have Chaos (Slaanesh), Dark Eldar and vanilla SM, and am now considering Nurgle LatD and Guard...

18-04-2007, 20:37
you left out necrons.
you bastard!

18-04-2007, 20:40
Mordian Imperial Guard, Dark Eldar and Chaos (DeathGuard).

I used to have an Ork as well as a Catachan DWV and EC army, too, but I sold them when all that stuff got to much to store in my little flat.

18-04-2007, 20:46
Yep, part of that too many population.

Stella Cadente
18-04-2007, 20:47

2000pts Dark Angels

18-04-2007, 21:10

I can't be part of a manipulated poll...

3000 pts Necrons (my main army)
2000pts Cadian Guard
1500pts Tyranids

18-04-2007, 21:20

18-04-2007, 21:51
you missed out necrons on your list :mad:

18-04-2007, 22:27
Too many space marine flavoured forces; dark angels, black templars, iron warriors and alpha legion; the alphas are done and sold to a good friend so its on to the next thing; one day. ;)


19-04-2007, 00:25
Orks - 1450 points. My main army. Am eagerly waiting for the new codex.
Space Marines "Impalers" Chapter - 1300 points (used to be 2,000 but I got rid of a number of junkie models). They were once Blood Angels but I got didn't like the 3rd ed BA rules so they became a Codex Chapter. They rarely get used.


Tau: 1200 points These guys were to easy to win with. I ended up selling them.
Chaos Black Legion: 1,500 points - my first army. I swapped them for my brother's Blood Angel marines. They are now his Word Bearers.
Tyranids - roughly 750 points I got cheap. I ended up selling most of them.

19-04-2007, 01:58
Armies: Necrons, Space Wolves, Orks, Dark Angels, Ravenwing, Eldar, Dark Eldar
Combat Patrol: Tau
Scattered models: Chaos, Tyranids, Guard, SoB, Blood Angels

I bought the Necrons used, and need to build the 6 Destroyers I need to complete my list copied from Firebase #1 :skull: After that I might build that heavy destroyer I picked up, and the two Pariah I got in a lot just to paint them. I like shooty warscythes :evilgrin:

My Wolves just need a squad of Grey Hunters to be playable at ~1250 points. they are built, but bare plastic. The weather has been horrible for priming in the northeast the last few weeks, and I refuse to field unpainted minis. Another pack of Claws and Hunters are in the wings with extensive magnetization for swapping special weapons, power weapons/power fists and plasma pistols.

The Orks have many bikes and vehicles built and painted thanks to ebay. Have not touched the Warboss or 48 Boyz though. Have the frame and card to convert a battlewagon this summer. Can't wait for the new models next year.

Tau are built and primed. Painted Ethereal, Crisis Suit and two warriors. Need to paint the other 10 fire warriors and I might be able to field a combat patrol.

Dark Angels, Eldar, Ravenwing, and Dark Eldar are untouched. Just checked for the extra Ravenwing Sprue in my Ravenwing battleforces. 3/3 :D

19-04-2007, 02:38
I have a vanilla chapter (Rising Sons), Imperial Fists and Dark Angels.

Also Steel Legion, Valhallans, Orks, Eldar, Dark Eldar, Tyranids, Necrons, Sisters of Battle, Grey Knights, World Eaters, Alpha Legion. Pretty much everything cept Tau.

Used to have a Nightlords force too, until it got smashed up in transit while Emigrating....

19-04-2007, 04:21
Warhammer 40,000
Deathbringers: Space Marines (no mercy no respite, honor your wargear) with Witch Hunter allies.
Korgath's warband: World Eaters.
Dath'kian strikeforce: Eldar.

Warhammer (don't really play anymore)

LOTR (don't really play anymore)

19-04-2007, 04:22
Sold all my Eldars and then get more Space Marines!!, and I dont regret selling the space elves.[dice0]

19-04-2007, 06:17
You left out Necrons.

My armies are in my sig also

19-04-2007, 07:03
I've got about 2500 points of Witch Hunters (almost all Sisters Of Battle except for an Inq and retinue, and assassins.) I've also got around 1000 more points worth of unpainted Sisters, but I haven't really needed them.

Then there's my 1500 points of practically unpainted space marines. They were my first attempt at collecting an army. I started painting Howling Griffons but dropped them when I found out about the SoB. ;) When I get back around to my SM, I think will make a Raven Guard army or a custom chapter with lots of bikes. I dunno, I like the bikes :skull:

Oh, and a small strike force (About 500 points) of Grey Knights, painting in progress. *******' LOVE the GK terminator minis.

19-04-2007, 14:30

19-04-2007, 15:57
Ultramarines, Dark angels, uno to do a marine army and make it good, Imperial guard and just started Nids and its turning me into somewhat of a Fanboy. On that note, do other tyranid players have army lists that seem to evolve everyday... i must be on list 106 for a 1500pt army by now.

19-04-2007, 17:46
Black templars in september along with my 2 friends who will have dark angels and ultramarines

The Orange
19-04-2007, 17:52
Started with Eldar (which I plan to rebuild in the not to distant future, since I already started buying some).
Current army is Tau (by far the largest army I've constructed and/or collected, still got tons of boxes sitting in my closet too, :( )
And I'm building a small Tyranid force (for my little brother, or so he thinks :evilgrin: )

Yea, I'm a total xenos whore, :o .

19-04-2007, 18:32
The thread title is misleading, at first I thought it meant armies you have owned with or have been owned by. :(

Oh and good ole regular Space Marines, Necrons, Tyranids, and Imperial Guard.

19-04-2007, 18:53
