Welcome to Librarium Online!
OK so i have been researching this game for the last few days and want to know what the normal battle size is. sort of like in wh40k most of the people around here play 2000pts. thanks
Well since Warmachine is a skirmish type game you will have a smaller force over all (less models, and a good portion of those models are stand alone and not multi-model units).
The boxed starter sets, which I highly recommend to starting players, give you about 350 points to play with. This is great for learning and for quick games.
If I had to guess what is the most common point allowance for a typical game, I would say 750 points or so. 750 points is enough to allow the use of an "epic" level warcaster (one allowed per 750pts) and will probably last you awhile.
I would consider 1000 points a complete army, and 1000 point battles will take quite a bit of your day up.
EDIT: I usually play 450 - 500pts against my friends.

Excellent. Thanks a lot for the info. I was at the hobby store pricing it yesterday. I am the kind of person that likes epic battles so i can see myself running a 1000pt game. looks to be pretty affordable though. Awesome.
