This is coincidentally similiar to another post going round at the moment, but my question is actually:
Anyone thinking of buying a new army, and then stopped to price out your stuff, and been absolutely horrified?
For example I really want to play armoured company, no not for the cheese, I just want to see the look of it on the tabletop. I also would make it my 'showcase' army, with lots of conversions and Forgeworld parts. I've written my 2000pts 'all comers' list, take a look if you want to:
http://www.librarium-online.com/foru...ad.php?t=43444 (2000pts Armoured Company.)
and then for an experiment I decided to price it up.
For my list I would require:
Leman Russ x 8 = Â£160
Plasma Cannon Sponsons x 16 = Â£48
Track Guard x 8 = Â£48
Improved Comms x 1 = Â£4
Commisar Commander x 1 = Â£4
Other Commander x 2 = Â£8
Grand total of Â£272 (not factoring in paint, glue etc).
Anyone else actually worked out how much their army would/has cost and gulped?

Wow, and I thought I had it bad.
I feel your pain dude.
I realize that forgeworld is a special case, and that their models are often worth paying a bit more for, but I spent wayyyyy too much on my elysian drop troop army.
I dropped over $350 just on vehicles for that army, but hey, they were all fliers and they are sooooo worth it.
Now thats commitment, I think you should post that in the other topic about the 'most expensive army', I'm sure you'd win hands down.
I couldn't bare to part the money for Elaysians, "how much? for a squad of Imperial Guardsmen?!"
I think I would cry.
I just priced the Imperial Guard army that I want and for 1850 points its $505.

DARK ELDAR 1500
We are not your worst nightmare--- We are your EVERY nightmare
My 2000-point Mech Tau army is looking to be around $550 CDN, for the minis alone. Granted, that's full value, and I'm getting lots in trades, but still! $550! And that's WITH the 30% discount from GC Minis! Well, except for my two Forge World XV89s. And I'll still need to get a copy of IA3, and paints, and glue and GS...*cries*
Burn the land and boil the sea. You can't take the sky from me.
Member of the Canadian Clan, eh.
Mech Tau Cadre: 2000 points, needs paint and magnets.
Paladins of Avalon (SW):-1500 points, needs paint.
Ha, I decided bugger it and ordered my tanks today.
I just spent Â£228 on 10 models (revised list).
When I make my final choices, I'll then order the Forgeworld accessories.
for my 4500 TS army it cost me like... 700$ but thats 4.5k...
You Can't Stop the Eighp
Had Tzeentch before I knew how to play :P
