Does Chaos count as a single army? I’ve got 3-4K points of EACH of the gods’ daemonic servants. So...between 12-16K of Daemons. Then I have a small pile of Space Marines, mix of 30K style and Black Templars.

The Daemons combo with AoS, but I also have mortals for that; so a big Chaos army there too.

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

I have at least 2,000 points of every army I have. I forget the exact totals but the last time I added it up I had over 7,000 points of Blood Angels and over 12,000 points of power armor in general.

Blood Angels
Craftworld Eldar
Deathwatch
Grey Knights
Ultramarines
Tau
Catachan
Space Wolves

I also have kill teams of Drew Carey and Harlequins.

I tend to focus on infantry and dreadnoughts so I still need some armor for my Imperium armies.

I also plan on buying the new Sisters of Battle when they are released. I had a sizable metal army about 10 years ago but sold it to pay rent.

Armies? Meaning what? North of 5k?
Nids
D Eldar
Craftworlds
Astra Militarum (inc Tempestus)
Grey Knights
Death Guard
CSM
SM (probably not got 5k worth but a substantial detachment)
Some knights (again maybe not 5k worth but I've got 5 knights, 4 warglaives)

I could do a Daemons army but I use them mostly with CSM/DG

I have detachments of inquisition, Custodes.

Welcome to the club.

As mentioned, it's perfectly normal to develop 'shinny model syndrome' and it seems like you may be seeking validation for your desire to start other armies.

Well... We're enablers here so sally forth and buy it all.

I think everyone's post here should start with #HumbleBrag. Anyway... I have (though I only play AdMech at the moment):

-AdMech
-Astra Militarum
-Blood Angels
-Craftworld Eldar
-Dark Angels
-Death Guard
-Grey Knights
-Imperial Knights
-Orks
-Space Marines (My own chapter)
-Space Wolves
-Tyranids
-Ultramarines

I am brand new to the hobby, building and painting my very first SC box for AdMech. And even though I’ve yet to even play a full game I can’t help but look at other armies and think of eventually building and playing one. Don’t get me wrong, I love the choice I made and if I went back in time would choose AdMech again. Models look great, lore is cool, seems to be a moderately powerful faction when used right. I just can’t help but see other armies and think that they are also cool and might one day down the line start building a new army.

So my question to the group is: how many armies do you have?


I own 11 distinct forces. All of them are far too large to justify.

~1000 points of AdMech, 60% painted.

What I have:
  • Dark Angels (no Primaris; I still have about 1000EUR to spend before I finish this project)


  • What I really want:
  • Salamanders (Primaris only)
  • Genestealer Cults


  • What I also kind of want:
  • Khornate Blood Angels (World Eaters)
  • Word Bearers
  • Thousand Sons
  • Mixed Inquisition/Assassins/Scions/Sisters/Grey Knights/Deathwatch
  • Combined Ad Mech/Imperial Knights
  • Tyrannids (Swarms of Hormagaunts)
  • Orks (Hordes of Boys)
  • Necrons (Masses of Warriors)
  • Tau (Horrible static gun lines & Kroot!)
  • Dark Eldar


  • What I don't really want at all:
  • Imperial Guard (most of the range looks too dated to me)
  • Eldar (same problem as guard)
  • Space Wolves & Deathguard (just never liked the aesthetic)
  • Everything else I haven't mentioned.

    As nearly everyone else has mentioned, it is quite normal to have and want multiple armies.

    For me part of the hobby is collecting, building and painting and I really struggle to part with anything that I've put lots of time into.

    I have the following:

    Blood Angels/Space Marines - Huge force.
    Imperial Guard - Large
    Chaos Daemons - Very Large
    Chaos Marines - Large
    Admech - Medium
    Deathguard - Medium
    Deathwatch - Medium
    Imperial Knights - Small
    Inquisition - Medium
    Custodes - Small
    Sisters of Battle - Tiny
    Sisters of Silence - Tiny
    Assassins - Tiny

    Plus various single models from a variety of factions.

    I consider a 2-3K force a medium collection.




    30,000pts
    12,000pts
    2,000pts

    Been playing for around 20 years, only have two armies. Guard and Necrons. Guard is almost 12,000 pts and Necrons around 5,000.

    Now my girlfriend also has two armies, around 5,000 pts of Orks and 2,000 pts of Slaanesh Daemons.

    Oh and my son has 8,000 pts of Dark Angels.

    But me... only two armies.

    UGH... this hurts to think about (all the money and time put into these). Please keep in mind that not all models in these armies are fully assembled or painted. Most are fully assembled... or assembled to the point to where painting would be difficult if I further assembled. And, I only have like two armies painted, and two close to being painted (several other armies are in various states from bare plastic to based to some detail painted). Also, I might need to move some vehicles (like Rhinos) around between armies to make up the full point values.

    BUT...

    Adeptus Custodes - ~1000 points
    Astra Militarum - ~2000 points
    Dark Angels - over 4000 points (mostly painted)
    Deathwatch - I believe 1000+ points if not closer to 2000
    Grey Knights - 1000+ points
    Imperial Knights - ~2000 points when allies are included (mostly painted)
    Chaos Daemons - Probably over 2000 points but all models bought for Age of Sigmar instead of 40K
    Death Guard - ~2000 points
    Craftworlds - ~1200-1500 points
    Drukhari - over 1000 points
    Genestealer Cults - Probably around 750 points
    Necrons - ~2000 points (mostly painted)
    T'au - ~2000 points (fully painted)
    Tyranids - ~2000 points (fully painted)
    Ynnari - combining Ynnari-specific, Craftworlds, Drukhari, and Harlequins... 3000+ points

    Ugh... hurts again to see how much money and time has gone into just the hobby part of 40K for me (and that doesn't include AoS). My Warhammer New Year's Resolution is to SLOW DOWN so that I don't burn myself out assembling or painting models (as I prefer my models be painted before they hit the table).

    Now, of all the armies listed above, Ynnari (or more specifically Drukhari) have been the ones that I've wanted to paint and play on the table the most over the past few years. So, I intend for my 1000 point Drukhari army to be my next painting project.

    From 3.5 edition to 6th Edition my main army was Chaos Marines/Demons - I have about 7k ish which I rearly use now.

    since then I have been playing AdMech/Skitarii/Knights and have about 5k of AdMech, and a Warden, Valiant & several Armigers of each flavour.

    Oh and a smattering of various other Imperial forces, e.g. Marines, Deathwatch, Custodes, Scions, Inquisition, Rogue Trader (generally enough for a Kill team or a bit more).

    I've got two Guard armies, almost as much Iron Warriors CSM stuff, Eldar, GK, Tau, Sisters, Tyranids, and potentially Custodes here shortly. Used to have Orks as well, have enough loyalist SM stuff to run a 2.5/3k list if I ever got it all coherently put together and painted.

    At the moment, two. A pure BA army, and a smattering of whatever Sisters I hadn't sold off to pay for college textbooks.

    Primarily collecting the pure BA, might sell the rest of the Sisters off to get new minis once they get released. Depends on finances.

    Technically I "have" some Guard, but they're my nephew's infantry-based cadian regiment. Though he wants to expand in to some vehicles. Wants valkyries and vendettas, mostly, I'll grant.

    The people in the past who convinced themselves to do unspeakable things were no less human than you or I. They made their decisions; the only thing that prevents history from repeating itself is making different ones.

    Technically I only own "Vanilla Space Marines". Of course "Vanilla Space Marines" can be seven or eight different chapters at this point, and can be another three if I include DA, BA, and SW (although as stated I don't own any of their specialty models). And also Death Watch with barely a "this counts as that" to be had.

    And by nature Marine models can easily stand in for Custodes, Grey Knights, or Chaos as well.
