How many places OUTSIDE the Empire do you have units from in your collection ... NOT INCLUDING nonhuman armies?

This question is only about places OUTSIDE the Empire ... and does not include the other armies that are not human.

So ... places like ... Araby, Bretonnia, Cathay, Estalia, Kislev, Nippon, The Border Princes, Tilea, etc.  And yes, if you have units from more than one spot inside these human locations feel free to count each one.

This also does not include Chapters of Knights, nor chaos, dwarf, elf, greenskin, lizard, ogre, skaven (which don't exist anyway), undead realms, etc.  Nor places that you're planning to have units from and don't yet.  These are being saved for different "polls", thanks!

Also ... a secondary question ... what are the places you have units from OUTSIDE the Empire, not including nonhumans?

NOTE: This poll has been left open so folks can change there answer as they grow or sell off their units.

Three: Bretonnia, Kislev, Tilea.

Forget the 6'x4' game, focus on the story beyond that. Because fantasy matters.

Tricky question, because having an entire homebrew kingdom/setting would suggest the vast majority fall outside the Empire. Keeping it strictly canon probably like 10 or 11. Maybe more.

Tilea
Bretonnian
Kislev
Estilia
Border princes (multiple different border princes)
Norsican/imperial Lustria settlement
Imperial allied pirates/Saratoga
Joint dwarf/human hold of Karak-Wolfin (Which goes on to be the capital of above mentioned homebrew kingdom.)
The Travellers style nomads
A number of non chaos 'barbarian' tribes.
Marienburg, because independence forever for the swamp people.

0 but that ain't an option?

With the suggestion from SKS, and only me and another giving an answer, I reset the "poll". :icon_cool: :::cheers:::

That is quite the collection.  I count ten, but that is only counting one Border Prince, and your's was plural.

And I didn't count Marienburg, because that is part of the other "poll" INSIDE the Empire, although I'm sure there are those who'd disagree, so I'm flexible.

So it seems your in the "Eleven or more" catagory. :icon_cool: :::cheers:::

Ha, I figured it was a tricky one GP! Especially the Border Princes. Theoretically there's at least two, plus some minor city states, from a campaign where they fought each other. But I'd personally lump them into one "Border princes".

I actually voted in the poll and went with 10, because I don't want to count to much of the homebrew stuff. Most of it isn't really set in the Old World or around a bouts.

10, if how I use them counts.

8 are full armies. 2 are just several units strong.

I have the following fully painted and entire armies ...

Tilea - actually two armies (a mercenary 'condottiere' one and a city-militia one) from different places, so yeah, 2 armies.
Sartosa - generic, fantasy pirates
Flagellant/cultist army - Morrites
Bretonnia - usual sort of stuff, although I have a mercenary company (the Brabanzon) as a separate entity
Araby
Northern / Border Princes nomads  - Either slightly chaos-affected Steppes warriors to the north (masses of light horse with a few chaos elements) but I have also used them in old campaigns as a Border Princes' force without the chaos-y bits. There are also several units of foot spearmen and bowmen which I have used as a different Border Princes armies too, either combined with the horse or not.

I also have painted units each units from ...

Cathay - halberd and crossbow.
Estalia - handgun and swords.

Photobucket has now re-destroyed my pictures, so the first half of my collected works thread is no longer working again. To see my website version of the campaign thread, with fully functioning pictures, please go to https://bigsmallworlds.com/
