So, I've been away from the forums and general 40k for a while due to moving to Switzerland.(any swiss gamers PM me)
Anyways, I've just recently looked into the apocalypse stuff and its looking pretty sweet. But my question for the forums is, how many of you guys have IG armies capable of apocalypse standards? Who has 3k, 4k, 5k+ pts of IG? Anyone looking to expand their IG armies to apocalypse levels?
I currently have around 5,200 to 5,500 pts of infantry IG depending on advisors, doctrines etc. Around 350 miniatures in total. Though like many gamers only about half is painted but hopefully that will be rectified.
In an Imperium of a million worlds, what is the death of one world in the cause of purity?
He who allows the alien to live,
shares its crime of existence.
A quick glance at the models in my shelf makes me guesstimate that I've got around 4 500 points of Imperial Guard models, but if I ever expand it won't be because of Apocalypse(aside from the Baneblade I plan to get because I love the model) but rather to bring my list more variety in regular games of 40k.
I have about 2500 pts at the moment, but ive got some basalisks on the way, and then of course the infamous baneblade. That will bring my point total to the apocalypse level. Im not so sure on how i will like the apocalypse, but i think it will be ok. I also have some marines to use as allies if need be.

Humm with everything jsut at base cost Im guessing I only have around 2000pts, . . . WHich means that I need more tanks!!!! I plan on buying a SUper heavy and maybe some more troops to beef up the ranks.
Yeah, i've got about 3000 points of IG infantry (about a third to a half of which is my skitarii), then there's the tanks and sentinels.
Then there's the 4000 or so points of dark angels. Yeah, i'm ready for apocalypse!

Also, you should google "garfield minus garfield". Awesome.
Is anyone planning on buying the IG boxed set to help get them up to Apocalypse sized armies?
I am off to buy the new codex as I haven't played IG for about 10 years and I need to suss out the new rules first but I am think that the new IG company box looks pretty sweet for £200.
What does everyone else think?
Is it value?
Well your looking at painting up to 180 models in that boxset, thats a pretty fair amount. You can always bring in alot of firepower by just buying the "Emperor's Fist Tank Company", you can always paint up 10 tanks, and make up to 1800 points worth right there. All and all thats gotta be alot of dedication for 180 models.

I'm going to collect me a traitor armored regiment :-D
2,500 for normal 40k - then more and more traitor tanks, and then branch into a traitor legion too :-D
I can't wait for chaotic guardy goodness :-P
Last night I stayed up late playing poker with Tarot cards. I got a full house and four people died.
I'd say I am looking at around 4000 points in guard between my grenadiers and Steel legion. Plus 2250ish of Nids, and 500 or so DH. Yes, bring on Apocalypse, I do plan to buy the Baneblade, and emporers fist tank set too. Can't wait for the tanky goodness, mua ha ha ha.
