How Many 40K Armies Do You Have?

And what are they?

- - - - - - - - - - - -

I have Orks, Space Marines (The Mentors), and Tau.

My Orks are the most painted, some Space Marines primed, and Tau still in boxes.

Oh, and I've decided to keep my Necrons from the 9th edition starter set, and paint them up at some point as well, so changing to 4!

This is going to be tricky based on how you count things, because I have several armies that are separate in fluff but merged on the table, and vice versa.

So I have:
1) Deathwatch of Watch Station Winter
2) 1st Canadiana Imperial Guard
3) Ignee Frateris Expeditionary Fleet (guard)
4) Rogue traders and hanger ons.
5) DoomSeeker Space Marines
6) Salamander Space Marines
7) Wolf pack of the Ardent Space marines
8) Scattered Son Space Marines
9) Associated Ad Mech and Sisters of Battle. (All of whom are grouped into their own detachment because they cant legally fill their own. So far)
10) The Dusk Weepers, Deathguard warband
11) The Fianna, renegade marines
12) Caesars Legion, renegade guard.
13) Craftworld Caedmon, Eldar.
14) The Inquisition (They count as a full army right? These days they essentially have to be deployed as a full detachment except for the one free one.)
15) Kabal of the Sundered Star, Dark Eldar.
16) Da Green Snake, Ork Pirates
17) Void Tide Pirates. (Technically renegade guard rules but includes a lot of random alien models)
18) Tau of the Van'Shea Sept
19) Saqqara Dynasty Necrons, (Let my Im'potent the Unreliable)
There's also some other bits and pieces. Honestly I didn't think it was that many until I opened the excel sheet to check!

Woah, had no idea that Gankom had that many.  Would love to see these!  It sounds like many are your own chapters and such, cool. :::cheers:::

1) T'au (Sa'cea and T'au Septs)
2) Death Guard (The Glooming Lords)
3) Salamanders (my daughter's army but will count here)

The funny thing is I really don't consider myself much of a 40k player compared to fantasy. I get to cheat somewhat because I focus so much on the fluff so I make little forces based on my homebrew sector more then I do actual, competitive armies. Plus my brother recently sold me most of his stuff as he was getting into different hobbies and needed the space.

Yep, my 40K is mostly Orks.

I built up a small army, 2000 points I believe, with some ability to vary.  Have a unit of 9 deffkoptas, maybe 12, that I managed to acquire from 5th edition starter sets when many didn't want their Orks, and this was for Apocalypse campaigning at a not so local hobby store.

My space marines, tau have never been a priority, although leaning towards doing up my Necrons.

Yipes! If all these armies are the quality of your orks (and I think it’s safe to assume so) then that’s a pile of artwork 😺

Thanks man!  I’d say the Custodes, Death Guard, Khorne demons, Imperial Knights, and World Eaters are.  The others are older and somewhat inconsistent, though the space marine army looks good to me.  I did it in white and light blue to try something different.

I dont have any full armies per-se, but I have a squad of Eldar, a squad of space marines (in progress) and some metal imperial guard Steel Legion models.

In order of which I have aquired them:

1. Nurgel Daemons (left over from Fantasy; all rebased)
2. Khorne Daemons (left over from Fantasy; NOT all rebased)
3. Orks (soooo many orks . . . )
4. Astra Militarum (small, 500 point Cadian force)
5. World Eaters
6. Death Guard
7. Emperor's Children
8. Thousand Sons
9. Black Legion
10. Word Bearers

So, what would you guys do if some dude came at you with a belt that way?

1) Imperial Guard - mainly Cadian, but I also have Elysian, Valhallans and will be seeking Mordians & Preatorians in the future. I just count the whole lot as 1 really.
2) Blood Angels
3) Imperial Fists

Though none of the space marines are really even built and I'm only a short way into the IG being finished. 40K collecting is very much on the back burner behind my fantasy efforts right now.

Might plan to add a little sprinkling of Tau in there some day too... maybe...

3) Imperial Fists

What a coincidence, my space marines are sons of Dorn as well. Going for a Horus Heresy 30K Imperial Fist army. I am going to try and clean up the office (which has been a pseudo storage room for the last 6 months) so I can get back to them. In total I will need 4 boxes of space marines.

2x 10 man squads of MkIII marines (so 2 boxes)
2x 5 man squad of MkIII marines (1 box)
2x 5 man squads of MkIV marines (1 box)

The 2 10 man squads are just compulsory tactical squads. One of the 5 man squads of MkIII will be the Templars and the other will be the Devastator squad. The 5 man MkIV will be the special weapons support squad and the other squad is my command squad. After that it'll be vehicles upon vehicles.

I am currently working on my first 10 man squad, trying to get the yellow figured out. I want a nice lemon look but I fear it will be more of a mustard. We'll see.

Although I have only listed 4 ... Orks, Space Marines, Tau, and Necrons, I have recently managed to pick up "start collecting" sets for IG, Chaos Space Marines, and Scions. :icon_rolleyes: :icon_lol:

Oh, and there's that box of 30K Space Marines that I opened up this evening, and have no idea what I am doing with them yet.  They look cool though. :icon_mrgreen: :::cheers:::
