    I have a serious problem...had it since Fantasy and I let it migrate to 40k with me. I can never decide on one army. I buy models for one army (I have Storm Troopers on order right now) then decide I want to play another.

    Would it be a better idea to simply get both progressively? I wouldn't be able to play as quickly as I'd like, but I wouldn't be looking at one or the other wishing I had that instead. Maybe buy a little from one, a little from the other, until I get both completed? (Christmas AND my birthday is coming up, so it's easier for me at this time of the year.)

    Does anyone have any opinions about this? Thanks. ^_^

    I know exactly how you feel. I&#39;ve been a long-time &#39;rine junkie, but can&#39;t seem to peel my eye away from some of the other forces. =&#092; I have somewhere around 4k points of &#39;rines, not including WH/DH allies, I have around 2.5k points of Necrons, 1k of Ork and some &#39;Nids. I&#39;m in the same boat as you. Birthday and Christmas close together, so i&#39;ll be expanding &#39;Nids and Orks, and buying Guard. =D

    I also had the same problem. Having started my 13th company, i for some strange reason went and started Tau, Guard and Nids. What i did was to finish my 13th and then my guard, postponing the others till a later date. But whilst doing my guard i decided to start fantasy, and started to collect Brettonians.

    The only break the habit is probably to force yourself to collect / finish one army before you continue with the others. I have tried but am failing, being in the middle of painting bretts and gaurd. :wacko:

    well if its in a 40k to 40k just pick armies that can use each other for allies so then you are progressively getting stronger. This is currently what I am doing with Imperial Guard and Grey Knights.

    Problem is, I&#39;m an IG fan and I want to collect Dark Eldar. :hmm: I think I&#39;m going to snatch up DE first, though, even though I have IG models already. Christmas and Birthday coming up so I can get a lot of models quickly. Plus, few people play evil armies around in my group, so it&#39;d be a nice change.

    I have made my self the rule that I WILL not buy any more models until I have painted the ones I have got. This has saved me hundreds of dollars and motivates me to finish painting. And if I do get a second army it will probably necrons because you don&#39;t need that many and they are easy to paint.

    Alas I share your pain. I&#39;m horrible about that,especialy considering my mad d esire to own one of every army there is (and I creep ever closer to my goal). even with 3 of us pooling our rescources it&#39;s taken us a few years to gather the 6 armies wee have now.I&#39;ve started using zerling&#39;s method and only buying new minis once the onse i have are painted.

    I&#39;ve decided to use Christmas and Birthday to snatch up as many DE models as I can, get a small force ready with them, and use them for the time. They&#39;d be more fun to use at the moment than my IG, and I&#39;d be one of the only "evil" players over here. We have a Tyranid player, but he isn&#39;t exactly very good. :hmm: Plus, for Fluff reasons, I&#39;d just like to fight my Eldar-playing friend. ^_^

    Sounds like you lot are in quite a bit of mental pain. Not to gloat or anything, but I suffer from no such problems. I only have one army: Black Templars, and I intend to stick with them.

    Hmm, I started with Thousand Sons, switched to Necrons when I realized I didn&#39;t understand the Chaos Codex, and now that I do I&#39;ve started working on both. Its expensive and time-comsuming, and I haven&#39;t truly finished a single model from either.
