    I doubt I beat you as I only have a single company plus backup of Ultramarines, 7500 or thereabouts.

    Chapter Master w/lightning Claws, Artificer armour

    Captains, take your pick I have 5 all tooled up differently but all in Artificer Armour
    Command Squad (can choose from 8 models to make various 5 model loads)

    Librarians, again 5 of these

    Land Raider Redeemer, w/multi-melta

    10 assault termies w/thunder hammers & storm shields (9), Lightning Claws on Sergeant
    30 Terminators, 2 A/C, H/Flamer, 3X Cyclones.

    6 Tactical Squads (10 each) various loadouts
    2 Assault Squads (10 each)
    2 Devastator Squads w/Rhinos
    4 Scout Squads (various loadouts, one includes Telion) all are 10 strong
    Predator w/t-l lascannon on turret & h/bolters on sponsons
    Ven Dread (can be armed as needed)
    Dreadnought w/multimelta & Storm bolter with DCCW
    Dreadnought w/various as well as h/flamer on Dccw.

    All up I make it around 7.5k points. may even be 8k if I fielded it all together.

    However, I could in Apocalypse add another 2k plus of IG and 3.2K of Eldar, does that count?

    And yes every model is painted and flocked. No primer only, nothing (and I mean nothing) gets used until it's finished with me. I'm a bit anal retentive about that for some reason.

    Yeah, great army! That's a battle company + about half of veteran first and half of the scout 10th? Very nice.

    Check out this game... http://apocalypse40k.blogspot.com/20...l-numbers.html . Probably the largest single location Apoc game I've heard of. I'd love to get into one of these games. I haven't found a club near DC that does much.

    Have you ever played them all in an Apoc? The largest game I've played so far, I played around 120 death company (some were proxied) + Astorath + 5 Death Co dreads + chaplains + warhound titan. That was about 8500.

    The most fun I've had with Apoc was playing the fighting 2nd Company + 1000 pts worth of death company. On our side of the game, we had about 3 companies plus a line breaker squadron. The enemy had 3 chaos titans, a shadow walker eldar formation, the ulthwe' strike force formation, and a company of chaos marines.

    Me. It's me. I have the largest painted CSM army in the universe, but I run a LatD/ GSC mash-up in 40kA so I can use most of my models.
    Even if you ignore the odd IG/ Tyranid model it's so lolhueg, I'm a little ashamed of the time I've wasted on it instead of striving for world peace.

    11x Librarian + 4x Winged Lib
    1x Capt + 1x Fallen DA Capt
    1x SG Daemon

    3x10 Termi w/ Lib Cmd
    1x6 Termi w/ 2LC (Ye Olde Retinue)

    1x Shadowsword

    And a partridge in a daemonic pear tree.


    Under the Haines and EoT dexes, I could bring a different Chaos army to every match.
    Nobody was purpose-building lists ahead of a 40k game with me!
    People would wonder aloud, "Oh God, what is it THIS time?"

    Then came the Gavdex ...
    Apocalypse is still cool, though.
    It got me to build the two Super-Heavies.

    Well I've got a pretty sizeable Eldar Apoc Army. I can't be fussed to write down the whole lot, but there are no models in the current Eldar range that I don't have, and I have pretty much most of the ForgeWorld stuff too. Points wise it weighs in just shy of 17,500pts. Highlights are

    2 x Phantom titans (1 Forgeworld, 1 Armorcast)
    2 x Revenant titans
    3 Flyers
    2 Hornets
    5 Shadow Spectres
    30 Dire avengers
    20 Guardians
    All special characters including Pheonix lords
    10 Wraithguard
    10 of pretty much all other squads
    6 skimmers of various varities
    21 Warpspiders
    etc etc

    No doubt the titans help me hit the high points level.

    Small confession, some of this isn't fully painted yet and I still need to build one of the phantoms. Still a pretty decent sized army though.

    -Massively converted truescale Captain
    3 Chaplains
    1 Librarian

    1 Ironclad Dread
    1 Normal Dread
    1 AOBR Dread
    Land Raider Terminus
    Land Raider
