    Post your full armies

    Inspired by another forum-
    lets see the glory of your army

    A quick pic last trip to the game store I forgot my regular camera so these are on my phone :P




    this was my 5th edition army build that clocked in at just under 2,800 points the only things not pictured (ran out of room to transport them) 10 sniper scouts, 5 scouts w/landspeeder storm, the other 4 tactical marines and the librarian in terminator armor. that bonus clocking me in at just over 3,300 points.

    This is an older picture of my Prussian Imperial Guard for 40K from the last time I had them out of storage (about 3 - 4 years ago). They're still waiting to be finished and the company that made the APC's has long since gone out of business unfortunately

    They’re mounted on WW1 tadpole tank chassis too which gives them an interesting look. They look nice and formidable on the tabletop 😁 . Who knows I may even finish painting them at some point 😂🤪

    I remember back in 2010 a guy showed up at one of the GTs with a WWII soviet themed force, mostly infantry horde, but it looked amazing

    Re: Post your full armies

    It always is with wargamers there is always something to build or paint. :P

    That's some classic range elder there, and I see you gave the elysians(and FW) a lot of love. a guy at our shop built the elysian dunebuggy army. I think he dropped like $1,500 on it.

    I see you suffered the same affliction that I had building 40K after 40K army (nids, sisters, ravenwing, deathwing, and tau for me aside from my DIY marines). I finally got smart and switched to other game systems that were far cheaper for some variety. I got pics of the other armies in my profile. I didn't post them because I don't really have them anymore. just a few bits here and there I kept.

    That’s some sweet collection there CB - if they gave out medals for gallantry in painting you’d be on a sure fire bet there 😎

    Re: Post your full armies

    Got some very nice armies out there. Best that I have is this from two years ago:

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	100_0255.JPG 
Views:	32 
Size:	439.3 KB 
ID:	240829

    While I have the boxes assembled, and a lot more blue is painted, this is basically where my army is now. The ones that look painted in the pic are in touch up phase.

    Red hands---better than being yellow all the time

    buddy of mine has a 5th ed crimson fist army we still play with. he is pretty mechanized land rider crusader, redeemer, some drop pods for his sternguard, assault terminators and his tac marines. it's a good list for 5th.

    No doubt, I have heard the horror stories about yellow. The plan is to have two companies, one that uses drop-pods and one that uses rhino's, whenever I use them in tandem of course. If I ever get around to another chapter, my plan is to have a home-made one and have it ambiguous as far as the loyalty goes. That is so that I can have the company fight whomever I want, including imperials. But that is going to be a while from now. Outside of the new Elites (Sternguard, Vanguard) I am not really fond of the new models coming out of Nottingham, so I am going to have to pick them up on E-Bay one squad at a time. They, however go in the back of the line to include the fantasy armies that I want to do.

    Those armies have been built over 30 years. Painting has always been cathartic. These are the armies I kept after selling off many others (mostly completely painted as well).
