Having planned my first 2000 point Salamander SM army, I could not resist making this into a whole company, which got me thinking....how long would it take me to do the whole Salamander Chapter?
So I was wondering:
I worked out with the rate at which I paint it should take me nearly 4 years ;? to do a whole chapter, and of course I am also starting Orks when the new codex comes out.
- Whats your biggest army?
- How long did it take?
- Does anyone have any plans to do a whole chapter etc?
- With experience, (taking into account Apoc) what is the biggest 'playable' army?
Biggest: my IW which is starting to get mighty clsoe to the 10K limit
How long: been working on them for over 4 years now
plans: to expand them a lot, full traitor guard, chaos titan legion etc etc
apocalypse will allow considerable army sizes that are playable, just depends on how much time and room you have.
I have a company of dark angels dating back to when 40k was Rogue Trader and have just been adding to it over the years. Looks the part though as there is quite a range of different marks of power armour. They also have several vehicles.
My largest army by far is my orcs and goblins for fantasy battle. I have far too many by far and have been adding to them for about 15 years. To put it in perspective I have over 400 metal night goblins
Helper monkey, bring me beer and donuts
My biggest army isn't too big...about 4500 points of Tau
my biggest armies well i used to ahve 7000 pts of chaos.
my current largest army is my high elves standing at over 5000 pts inclding tyrion
WELL SAID, NO MORE SQUATS THEY ARE DEAD GET OVER ITOriginally Posted by artificer
I can make up 3 armies of about 5000pts (just about). They're not very balanced though, I have to bump up the extras because there are not enough standard troops.
I started my current project in July, the aim was to buy, build and paint a 2000pt Tryanid force
as quickly and as cheaply as I could. In took me two weeks to get all my models from ebay ( I saved a whooping £55+
using ebay compared to games workshop online store) It then took the better part of one month to build all the models
( by the way I work two jobs which accounts for 65 hours of my week, but it just means I can spend more on my horde!)
It has taken me the remaining 2 months or so to paint my army. the colour scheme is black carpace and red legs, arms and faces.
I have also done detailed bases for every models consisting of sand, slate and snow flock. Because someone once told me that bases and faces make the miniture so I often make a big effort on these bits. It has been a chore to paint all that red, but foudation paint has been a true blessing.
Anyway here is a break down of everything in my army so far.
5 ripper bases
5 winged warriors
3 highly converted spore mines.
Undercoated but not painted
1 converted broodlord
1 winged hive tyrant
That will be 97 models coming in at just over 2000 pts. And hopefully will be done by Jan next year so I can then start my next project. A forge world bio titan!
I AM BOOMER!
God only knows how much IG I have at home. Note to newer players: If you don't have copious amounts of money falling out of your nether regions, I'd advise writing up a 1500 to 2000 point list and working up to that. Then start adding additions, substitutes, etc.
I spent way too much on my Guard, and they're so badly painted...
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.
