Welcome to Librarium Online!
We all have a pool of units we draw from, either mentally or model-wise that we use to create our armies.
So, for fun, here is what I'd "reasonably" want to put into my army if I could fit it all. It is essentially my pool as one armylist.
I'm not saying I think this should be allowed, but this is the pool of destruction I draw from when I'm planning out my army lists:
Company Command Squad with 4 meltas and Fleet Officer in Chimera
Inquisitor Lord with mystic retinue and hood. (Thinking of adding the Tarot)
As much as the other HQs are cool, I never really consider them.
Psyker Combat Squad in Chimera
Psyker Combat Squad in Chimera
Elite Inquisitor with mystics
Other Elites are just never considered since these are so useful I can't fit any others.
Six vet squads in Chimeras with an assortment of meltas, plasma and flamers.
200+ other guys I never fit in.
Some Heavy Weapons Squads gathering dust (Mortars, Missile Launchers, spare Lascannons)
2 Hellhound/Banewolf/Dire Wolf hulls
1 Vendetta (Still in progress)
Sentinels are dead to me, which makes me sad.
Rough Riders have been dead since 4th edition /cries
9 Leman Russ Hulls, but I generally use sponsonless Demolishers, sponsonless LRBTs and Las/Plas LRBTs.
Building 3 Hydras/Manticores. Haven't tested them out yet.
One day I'll take the Executioner for a spin and see if it competes for playtime.
So, what is your "Pool of Destruction"?
RecklessFable's Journey to Mediocrity (Painting an IG army)
I've been addicted to World of Tanks lately and neglecting my IG... But it is so... much... fun!
My pool, hmmmmm lets take a look
CCS with converted astropath, ordinance, fleet advisor
WH Inq lord with 2 crusaders, converted servo skull, and acolyte
currently converting a PBS
Converted Sly Marbo (has about 20 grenades around his body)
150+ Guards (fully painted)
18 Various HW Teams (mostly lascannons/HB's
Plasma x5 Melta x5
10 Nicely made veterans
2 Armored Sentinels
1 Scout Sentinel
1x Converted Eradicator BT
Only about 3.5k Worth of guard, I need more tanks, and a job that pays
Darks Elves 6000ptsWood Elves 500pts (WIP)
Imperial Guard 5000pts
These days, my list changes very little except for my Elites choice. A typical, 1500-1850 list:
HQ: One choice, haven't played the Company Commander in a while.
Troops: 2 platoons of 25 men each, missile launchers and meltas.
Command squads have heavy bolters.
One or two Chimera squads with Demolitions upgrade only.
I will eventally add either a couple Penal Legion squads or bump the
platoons to 35 men each.
Fast Attack: 2 Hellhounds with multimeltas, never a Hellhound variant.
Maybe swap one for an Armored Sentinel (eventually two).
Heavy: 3 Demolishers with multimeltas and one Colossus.
Sometimes replace a Demo with a Pask Executioner.
Elites: One or two choices of stormtroopers, ratlings, PBS, Enginseer and/or Ogryns.
Ratlings are on the way out, though---tiny guns, not enough terrain.
"My tanks have names, my men have numbers." -Col. Edmund Grahvess, 23rd Kronecker Prison Guard
Available Stuffs, all of which is painted:
old angry man, melta, master vox (use for master of ordinance), banner, medic, useless wounded man.
older SO variants for additional HQ, etc.
smoking officer, 3x melta, medic, vox, heavy flamer, banners, etc.
Typical build is Creed + 3x meltas + HF + astropath
additional build = officer + 4 snipers + master of ordinance.
techpriest and servitor retinue.
Lord Commisar (old gaunt model)
psyker battle squad of old metal psykers.
Troops: ~150 or so guardsmen
4 or so versions of platoon commanders.
tons of GL's and voxoperators.
4-5 Commissar models from 90's-present
9 or so squads, at least 4 just running GL/vox combos.
remaining 5 are new veteran squads running triple melta/plasma.
3 HSWs' with swappable weapons.
tons of old missile launcher/flamer heavy weapon guys.
4x chimeras with stubbers.
6 Sentinels with swappable weapons.
1 Standard LRBT w HB's and stubber.
1 LRBT vanquisher with lascannon + HB's + stubber....probably going to become a plasma tank.
1 chimera chassis with multiple rocket mount for manticore missiles.
1x Baneblade with swappable main cannons (standard/volcano thing)
1x lrbt conqueror
1x laser destroyer
2x salamanders (one is becoming a manticore).
1st Enders Mechanized Division
Enlist Today, Ave Imperator, Ave Endra
Every list I make these days (I make more than I put up on the army lists section for comments) appears to have:
Cheap CCS without any advisors but 4 special weapons
lots of veterans squads, normally 3 plas and lascannon or 3 melta
some ordanance (always LRBT or LR demolisher for battle tanks and some artillery)
and some chimera's with 2 heavy bolters or 2 heavy flamers.
Sometimes I use different fast attack like hellhounds/sentinel's, have yet to try out valkyrie's.
and on the 8th day god made a talking poodle and forgot all about us
