Tragically my brother has a miniature addiction. I got my first miniatures 14 years ago and have one army, now working on my second.
He started 2 years ago and has:
Tyrinids, Eldar, LatD, EC, Tzeentch, Death Guard, Khorne, Black LEgion, IG, Daemonhunters, Witchhunters, Tau, High Elves, Lizardmen, Dark ELves, Tomb Kings, Vampire Counts, Harlequins, Necrons, Beasts of Chaos, Chaos. Maybe more, I might be forgetting some.
And He doesn't just have, for example, Eldar, He has a Titan and about 14,000 points of Eldar. An IG plane, Baneblade, Shadowsword.
Is this a record? I think it has to be, if not for the sheer amount of miniatures, but the sheer amount of miniatures collected in a 2 year period.
And you know what? I decided to start that second army of mine about a month ago, and asked him to help me find some good deals. So a Forgeworld Slaanesh Keeper of Secrets comes along. He tells me about it. So I'm like,
"120 buck huh, do you think I should get it?"
He says, "No, you can't because I'm going to!"
C'mon now, give me a break. I asked him if he had any extra EC he would even sell me and he wouldn't part with a single one! THat's gotta be an addiction.:wacko:
And last but not least the one army I have and have had since I started is Space Marines. I have told him, get what you want, but you can't get Space Marines. So get this, he tells me the other day he's getting Space Marines. Pssssh!

yes,,,,yes, your brother is addicted to miniatures.
if he painted all those miniatures in 2 years, then he is:
a) his painting must be pretty bad
b) he has alot of spare time in his hands
c) he is damn rich
d)all of the above

That's an unholy amount of minis! If that was MY brother, let's just say his collection would be HEAVILY borrowed from. I'd also get after him for being a stingy, selfish jerk. I'm not saying to get a 50 gallon drum of brake fluid and have his minis have a pool party in it (though if you did, that would be kinda mean, but VERY funny...at least to me, but I'm evil. :tongue: ) or anything like that, but maybe have him watch "A Christmas Carol" or something and have him see what happens when you're selfish your whole life.
PS: How did he afford all those mini's in just two years?...That's got be like a few thousand dollars in GW products!
5 Tactical Squad Marines
Wow...not even im that bad....I'd admit I'd have a lot of minatures if I could afford more but probally not that much. That must've cost a fortune.
Yes, that is far too many. I do believe hitting your brother with a very heavy object would be a reasonable course of action. As for him buying Marines, if he so much as buys a tactical squad, I would start buying whatever army he throughly enjoys, see how he likes it.
What a selfish prat.
That is quite a few minis, but to be quite honest, it's not surprising since i mean face it, we're all mini freaks! WHat is surprising that he got it all painted. I have been playing 40K for around 3 years now and have collected around 4 large armies. However, I've only partially finished one and am starting to put the second together. The are unassembled in my closet! True I am maticulous and do a heavy amount of conversion.
Eldar Titan for 120 dollars. what? who? where?
He must be insanely rich to afford a whole army of each of the armies you mentioned... Has he painted them all or is he just a power gamer...?
No, the only ones he painted so far, and he has done a good job of it, conversions and everything, are about 4000 points of chaos.
And the eldar titan, I don't know how much that cost, it was a Forgeworld Keeper of Secrets that was normally 150, but he got for 120, that I wanted for my new army.
And for your idea just collect his favourite, can't do, he doesn't have a favourite, so basically any I collect, like Slaanesh, he already has. And it's not looking good. He already has for Space Marines:
2 Whirlwinds, 3 Dreadnaughts, Rhino, PRedator, 2 tac squads and Termies. Maybe more. I don't know, it's not good. My one army man. Had em 14 years. Not good.
Im bad but not that bad. If I had enough money then I'd have every 40k army exept DE and Orks. For soem reason they just don't appear to me. But still im not even as bad as your brother!
