Seeing a massive army like this is what got me into the hobby, this is really cool.

Very impressive. You've carried out the aspirations of every serious painter and have the work to show. I'm blown away!

Unfortunately, GW is about to declare all firstborn Marines are moving to Legends. Good luck on the next army!

Thanks mate.

I'm not overly worried if GW ever decided to retcon anything, or move the whole thing to Legends.I've been through enough of that over the years that I'd just grab what I can from what I've got and play them as "counts as". OR just play an edition that fits. Or like someone has suggested just 30k it instead.

Firstly, that is bloody impressive, hats off to you on an epic endeavour.

This is the sort of thing that should be in White Dwarf, that is if it were no longer a glorified sales device.

Anywho, how much have you used in one game? I strongly doubt that you'll ever get the chance to use it all in one go... Still, if you ever did. Wow!

Cheers mate.

The most that has ever been deployed was the entire 300 terminators, 2nd and 3rd company, with elements of 6th and 8th (maybe a few squads) and I think the dreadnought count was only half of that. It was many years ago. I also think it was before I had my Warlord Titans, i don't think they have ever "marched". I split the titans via colour scheme with my friend(1 warhound and reaver each), he used his tau, and black templars combined with my khorne demons, grey knights and imperial guard (maybe my eldar too). It took us a night to set up and an entire day to get to turn 3-4. Only lost just on 100 terminators. this was still with titan blast templates too.

I do not think the entire chapter will ever see a match. That is two 6 ft x 4ft tables with them displayed on. I would also need to find a place to set up a game, and an opponent(s) with enough to deploy in return. Turns would take Hours to complete unless had multiple players commanding sections of the board. Probably take 2-3 days to complete the match. Still would be interesting to do.

All jokes aside though, this collection is awesome! I've seen people with a few SM armies of several thousand points each, but I can't say I've seen any put them together in companies as a whole Chapter. Seeing the all laid out in parade really makes it hit home just how many that is as well. Inspires me to want to grow my own collection to this size, though space is already a problem currently. It also makes me want to do similar with the IG, though that would be a nightmare of a lifetime project considering how big most regiments actually are. I am also envious of your Titans.

EDIT: Scopemk2 speaking here, something has gone sideways with the quotes:
Thank you.

As I may have mentioned in previous quote/answers and such. This did not happen overnight, and it was really around 8-12 years in of playing and collecting 40k that I decided to go the full job of doing the entire chapter. From that point I slowly assembled each company. seemed like i did around 100 models from start to finish every year from that point. With the lockdowns, I decided to get the last of the Primaris and knock all 197 models out in 2 months.

I do agree getting the collection out and seeing it all lined up, does get me motivated to paint. I've done it a couple of times over the years to keep me pushing through the chapter. When it was all done and out It was a huge mix of happiness and abit of sadness. Happy with how it looks, and what I've managed to do, and bit sad that it is more or less complete, after all this time it is done. I say that but there will ALWAYS be more marines. Space be damned I will find space.

Ahh, the Titans. Those are my children at this point. They don't see much action, but I really do love those models. If a chapter is not enough I've got those for back up. Having gone from Warhound to Reavers and the Warlords, seeing how far Forge World came over that time is amazing. Still not without faults, but building and painting those is a huge project in themselves(over 6 months for the 2 warlords). Funny how close the Adeptus Titanicus warlords are to the "full scale" ones.

can you imagine fielding an unpainted 1000pts army opposite this...

My hat's off to you good sir. I've wanted to do this since I first picked up the 3rd edition codex and saw the fully painted chapter inside the front cover. I'm about 1/3rd of the way there at the moment (2 companies done, 2 1/2 done, 1st and 10th about 2/3rds done), (372 Battle Brothers at current count.) but I've diverted more into collecting all the armies than just marines, so I might not ever get there. I'm glad to see that someone did though.

If I put every model I own on the tabletop, I could probably scrape together 40,000 points or so. I can just imagine the kind of game that would be.

Formidably impressive results, mate!

I like the paint scheme and modelling alot- there must be quite the satisfaction looking at these results.

Ah, a taller scale Epic army for mildly larger games

Great work all round. Surely they have a dedicated shelf to be constantly presented instead of languishing in foam trays?

But is there a 2nd edition box set plugga-bolter marine in there? There has to be, at least one, right?

Thank you kindly.

Unfortunately only a small portion of the chapter is on display, All commanders and dreadnoughts are displayed. I have to large sealed cabinets that contain some of my Warhammer. The 3 titan pairs take up a good amount of that as well as all of the dragons/monsters/daemons. To display the whole chapter I would need several more cabinets with loads of shelves. and most spare cabinet space is occupied by my 1/6th scale collection of things. One day I do hope that I can acquire a bit more space to have the chapter displayed. What you see now is is on two 6ft by 4ft tables, so a decent amount of space is required.

I do know there are 2nd edition terminators, and maybe metal 2nd edition Chaplain, Librarian and maybe sergent. There are a couple of plug marines but I think they are later editions judging by the bolters. I started playing 40k around 3rd edition.

The models come from my earliest paint jobs, being my original terminator squad, and 3rd company.

Some classic minis there. It’s a phenomenal collection and a big achievement. The stuff that most Space Marines collectors only dream of. Love that old Whirlwind too.
