Quick pole to see how many pts people play on average?

Usually 2000, but I fairly regularly 3000pt games in, I'd say once a month. The largest I ever played was 10 000pts - that was crazy. I had to stand on a chair to look at the battle, just to try and keep some kind of battle plan going and not just shooting at whatever was nearest.
wow do you have a 10,000 point fleet!?
Haha - I wish! My fleet (Imperial Navy with some Adeptus Mechanicus) tops out at about 4500pts. I played with two other IN players to get us up to 10000pts and we played against about 8000pts of Chaos and 2000pts of Necrons. With over 100 ships in play, it was by far the biggest battle I've ever played. And the only time I've ever used more than one Battleship!
sweet i'd love to do a battle that big!
It was certainly an experience! While it was great fun (not least because we won) it was also quite stressful - trying to make big decisions is very difficult when trying to co-ordinate with 2 other people controling big fleets. In the end the mistake the Chaos players made was fighting several small battles while we faught one big one.
I'd definitely reccomend it if you ever get the chance.
Rep for getting a 10,000 point game in. That must have been incredible. How long did it take?
Mostly jealous you get to play games of 2000pts plus regularly. I've had about 7 games, from 750pt mess abouts to 3000pt trafalgars. Average is hard to say, just wish i could play more.
Thanks much for the rep. It took a weekend - my other half at the time was furious! I suppose given a few breaks it took about 15-18 hours to finish - but a lot of that was the distances involved, we were playing in a mates garage, on the floor - so we had an awful lot of room to breathe. Lots of fun.
For now I tend to play 500-750 point fleet engagements to squeeze quick games in during a long work lunch hour or during a week day evening. It gives us a good chance to try out a lot of different ship combinations and random tactics.
During the weekends we play 1000-1500points. But these are far fewer between the quick games.
