At this point it's probably easier to just go all in and say you play every army. :teehee:

If my posts appear rude to you, I apologize. It's not meant to be rude in any way, it's just the way folks are in my country. It's really more about being direct than being rude. I know how it's perceived in the english speaking community and I already try to tone it down but I barely notice when it's too much since it's normal for me.


So yeah, I'm really not rude it's basically just cultural differences that act against me here. Again, I apologize.

I have varying sizes of armies for every faction but Sisters of Battle. I will have an army of them once they get plastic minis. Of my armies only 1 of my DIY Space Marine chapters is painted and my Night Lords Chaos Marine Army. Most armies I have at least 1.5k if not more points. I have been collecting them since I wanna say 2001 so 17+ years make it easy to have that many armies. At least that is what I tell myself....

What I want:

- A small patrol of Deathwatch

- Some Inquisitors

- Possibly a small contingent of Custodes (no bikes though. I'm not pulling that cheese)

- A battalion of scions

I'm increasingly looking towards Kill team as a compromise with my inherent desire to own everything. 

 

That said, I currently have two armies, and assorted fragments of three more.

I have a large Unforgiven (Stoneburners) army (full battle company plus reinforcing squads and 1st & 2nd company support), plus about 1500 points each of Angels Encarmine and Drakeslayer Space Wolves. I've got about 1250 points of Farsight Enclave Tau that I'm slowly building up through Kill Team (you can use a Riptide or Ghostkeel in that, right???) and the same for AdMech. I have a small Chaos Marine warband and probably 1250-1500 points of Lugganath Eldar and their Harlie allies, along with about the same of Nids & GSC. Finally, I have a small amount of Orks stashed somewhere that haven't been assembled.

If you're anything like me your primary army is actually Orks and the way other collections dwarf it is just a bizarre happenstance.

Would like to see some of your Lugganath.

I went the same way after really enjoying Harlequins in Kill Team. Trying to get a handle on the color scheme.

Sure thing! I think these are the only pics I have of them, they aren’t very far along painting-wise: http://www.bolterand...tion/?p=4786994

I'm currently collecting:

 

Heresy-era Word Bearers

Death Guard

Blood Drinkers

DeathSkulls Orks

A few Primaris marines, still deciding what chapter they'll be.

 

I'm also waffling(again) on what my second Heresy-era army will be assembled as:

 

Either Ultramarines or Salamanders.

Currently - WIP custom Primaris army (the Spears of Eurotas, inspired by the Minotaurs). The Red Tide, a khornate army of three waves (see what I did there?) - the Skull Wave (mortals - marines, cultists, vehicles etc), The Blood Wave (Daemons) and The Iron Wave (mostly Daemon Engines). A bijou Blood Angels force that has only seen the battlefield 2 or 3 times in 8th.

 

Historically, well, where to begin? Night Lords, Space Wolves, Death Spectres (before they were cool), Grey Knights, Red Scorpions, Necrons, Astra Miliguard plus one or two others I can't recall...

2 armies + change.

 

BT and Imperial knights.

 

EDIT: Speaking of which at what point does change become an army of its own? 2 Troops and an HQ?

I'd guess at the point where you decide you want to collect a faction, as opposed to buying a single model or unit to paint.

One pretty full/complete Space Wolves army (have drop pods, dreads, various tanks/transports, thunderwolves, bikers, jumppacks, and a flyer)

 

A solid force of Tau, although if I were playing it much I'd probably flesh it out - Riptide, stealth suits, broadsides, crisis suits, drones, hammerhead, pathfinders, piranha, fireblade, farsight.

 

some random figures that were good deals or fun modeling - Nid Mawloc, some eldar jet bikes and infantry, and probably a few other things I'm not remembering.

 

So like 1.75ish armies?
