    My biggest armies of Necron and Harlequin are about 3k+ each.
    But the problem is finding people as fanatical as me to play against.
    Most of my friends can only just pull 1.5k together so I allways have to scale down my army. Sometimes I let them group up but fighting a 3k mixed force of Tau & DE is NOT FUN!!

    The averag army is probably about 1500-2000 pts I think. My Iron Warriors are 4500 at the mo, not sure about the others but they're all less than 1500 (work in progress).

    Hmmm.
    The standard battle would normally be around 1500 points. And some slightly bigger ones are around 2000.
    Bigger battles occur as well, but these are more rare as it is not that many people out there that have enough points to do so.
    Currently my IW force is around 2600 points, I got 100 points, yes only 100, of IG valhallans and I&#39;ve got something like 500 points of kroot mercenaries.
    My goal is to expand these armies up to maximum 3000 points... maybe not the IG one but it&#39;s a thought for the future.

    The standard for GW tournies is 1850, but most people have well over this amount in their chosen army. The reason for this is because most decent tactical players have all the models they could possibly choose from in order to most effectively fight their opponent.
    Another reason is pure love for that particular army. After a few recent ebay transactions, I have close to 7k points in my IG army.
