Well, I don't feel competent enough to write a proper and fluffy introduction. I am curious, how big are your armies of the Adeptus Astartes, divided into PA Marines, Scouts, Bikes, Terminators, Primaris and vehicles. Those who want to share their exact numbers or those who got lost in the hobby and are able to present nothing more than rough estimates are welcome to join in.


I hope that this thread will motivate some of the hoarders who, I'm sure, are among us to take a moment and reflect on their collections. I've been there a couple of months ago, but thanks to the sobering introduction of Primaris to the setting, I managed to sort things out with my force which looks something like this:


~210 PA Marines

25 Scouts

~ 50 Terminators

17 Bikes

3 Land Speeders

15 Rhino chassis

4 ~LR chassis

2 Stormtalons

2 Stormravens

3 Drop Pods

8 Dreadnoughts

4 PA Marines, a Land Speeder, an Apothecary, a Company Champion, an improperly built Space Marine Vet Sarge with a Boltgun and a Power Fist, and 3 Primaris Marines, at your service.

At last count I had roughly 17k worth of dark angels. I cant count them from work, but estimates in a similar format to what you have...

At least two companies of PA marines
70ish scouts
100+ terminators (including 30ish on 25mm bases)
50+ bikes
10+ speeders
4 LRs
3 vindicators
3 predators
2 whirlwinds
Oh God I don't even know on rhinos/razorbacks
2 pods
One lonely plane
Probably all the dreadnoughts

I've yet to be able to do a proper headcount, but it's AT LEAST

An old company I painted about 15 years ago
An Ultramarines first company (about half painted)
About 60ish currently in my Lamenters force
Around 100 each MkIII and MkIV in various stages of build and painting
Around 80 Marines covered largely from Berzerkers I got really cheap
40isk bikes, about 10 speeders, 5 raiders, and a handful of predators and an excessive amount of rhinos or drop pods.

I figure about 500+ all told, or far more than I'll level need or probably paint.

I am a filthy ETL oathbreaker. I acknowledge my failing and will be sure to correct it.
