What is your biggest army?
Galadrin
Either by point value or by model count? My biggest is probably my Orc and Goblin army. It has:

60 Night Goblin Spearmen (the lovely old metal ones)
20 Night Goblin Archers (ditto)
34 Black Orcs (mid 90’s metal)
10 Orc Boar Boyz (from late 90's)
15 Savage Orc Boar Boyz (same vintage)
45 or so Orc Boyz with hand weapons (ranging from 80's to 90's)
12 Orc Arrer Boyz
12 Orc Crossbow Boyz
10 Goblin Wolfriders (mid 90's with plastic wolves)
8 Fanatics
15 Night Goblin Nettas and Clubbas
6 Squigs with Squig Hunters
4 Squig Hoppers
2 Goblin Wolf Chariots
2 Orc Boar Chariots
3 Stone Trolls
3 River Trolls
5 Forest Goblin Spider Riders
14 Forest Goblins with hand weapons
2 Giants (Marauder models)
1 Orc Bolt Thrower (early 90's)
3 Doom Divers (the old model)
And a couple Rock Lobbas (actually Crooked Claw models, but they fit in perfectly)

There are also the obligatory character models and a random handful of other things (like Savage Orcs and Forest Goblin Stikkas) but not enough to make full units. There are definitely a few odds and ends that I need to pick up, but I am cheap and always wait to find bargain basement deals.

So I need to do my inventory, but I think that my dwarf army is the largest in model size and points. After that I think that it would be either High or Dark Elves, not sure which I have more of right now. After that it would be my Empire army, and followed by Beasts of Chaos. I have a few models here and there of other armies but that is about it.

It would be wise of me to get everything inventoried and squared away so that I can see what I can part with and what I need before everything turns into collectors items more than what they already are.

EDIT: On top of forgetting my beastmen, I also forgot to say that at some point in time, I am going to start working on a Bretonnian force that can be used as a historical army. The Empire is just about that depending on what system you use I suppose.

If my dream every comes true, and my budget can hit where I want, I want to get 6 Isle of Blood sets so I can build both a massive Skaven Core army, and bulk out my High Elves with a few units. That would probably drive the Skaven to the top of the list if I made that dream a reality. In a perfect world I'd do the same with the Battle for Skull Pass sets, but those are way overpriced online.

I've been trying to get a Battle for Skull Pass off of eBay myself lately, and I've missed out and been outbid at the last second on the few decently priced bids. Definitely the price has gone through the roof on that kit!

2 beastlords on foot
1 beast bsb on foot
2 beastshamans on foot

about half of the above is painted

Tbh I dunno how much more is in the basement, Iīve had a bit of hoarding syndrome when it comes to miniatures & especially chaos in warhammer, just recently I sold of a complete 2K chaos army (unpainted) as well as gave away an Ogre starter box just to get rid of some models.
I know I have at least 1 vortex beast down there as well as a whole moving box of unopened chaos models. My girlfriend doesnīt really appreciate all the space i takes...

Vampire counts by a mile, currently they take up three shelves in my detolf displays. Just in Zombies and Skeletons, I think they're close to beating the other two armies at 210 models, never mind the rest of it lol

I'm currently working on VC- I like the mix of editions you have there.

My biggest army would either be Orcs and Goblins or Wood Elves by points- by numbers definitely the greenskins-

~140 Orc Boyz
~40 Savage Orc Boyz
~50 Orc Arrer Boyz
~25 Common Goblins
~120 Night Goblin Spearmen
~75 Night Goblin Archers
~25 Goblin Wolf Riders
~40 Goblin Spider Riders
20 Black Orcs
2 Goblin Wolf Chariots
2 Orc Boar Chariots
8 Squig Hoppers
1 Doom Diver
1 Rock Lobba
4 Bolt Throwers
1 Mangler Squig
2 Pump Wagons
3 River Trolls
1 Stone Troll
8 Common Trolls
1 Arachnarok Spider
~20 Orc Boar Boyz
~5 Savage Orc Boar Boyz
+ Plenty of characters, on all kinds of mounts

I intend to add a regular squig herd soon, before they're deleted or put on round bases.

Thread necromancy, but that's what you get for letting the undead players loose. I also wanted an excuse to count them...

3 x special characters (Vlad, Isabella and Mannfred on his horse)
4 x Vampires on foot (one's a girl, one's in armour, the others are generic Carsteins)
2 kitbashed Wraiths
1 Wight Lord waving a big flag around
1 Zombie Dragon (nothing on the back because I don't like any of the mounted Carstein models)

28 Skeleton Swordsmen
28 Skeleton Spearmen
20 Skeleton Crossbowmen
40 Zombies with command
10 Ghouls (by Heresy, tackle out)
12 Dire Wolves (one Doom, one docked)
2 Bat Swarms
10 Huntsmen for when I play the wacky Von Carstein theme force
About 20 gravestones on bases to fill out units

6 Spirit Hosts
20 Grave Guard with greatswords
20 Black Knights with lances

2 Black Coaches
2 - 3 Banshees (one of them moonlights as a Wraith most of the time)


There's another 8 Black Knights who are so badly painted I refuse to put them in the display case and yet another 8 who are built as White Wolves and might get painted up as Vampire Thralls one day, or sold. I want more Dire Wolves (I used to have about thirty, happy days) and should probably invest in some Fell Bats (if I can find models I don't hate).

I don't believe in thread necromancy. If you have relavent information on something that is an ongoing topic of discussion, then post away.

Imagine that I'm doing enormous kitten eyes right now. When I was a kid it was always better to post in an extant thread than to start a new one and we seem to have lost that article of faith along the way. Now I feel like I'm coming home...

I can see how thred necromancy can be a problem at places like warseer or Dakka Dakka, where you have a discussion on the same topic that can bleed from one edition to the next. That is the reason why I made the forum the way that you see it. I did not want to have a discussion on magic bleed from the 5th edition to the 6th edition where that phase is completely different. However, topics like this one where we are talking about our largest army was a universal topic that I saw all the time over the years. I thought that it was bizarre to have three or four threads on topic like this.

My largest Warhammer army by points AND model count would have to be my Wood Elves. From memory they muster:

- 1 Highborn

- 1 Spellweaver

- 1 Spellsinger (Glamourweave, with Unicorn)

- 1 Noble Standard Bearer

- 2 Nobles

- 1 Wardancer Noble

- 1 Treeman Ancient (could also function as a regular Treeman, I suppose)

- 64 Glade Guard (in 4 units of 16)

- 5 Scouts

- 20 Eternal Guard

- 12 Dryads

- 8 Glade Riders

- 20 Wardancers

- 6 Tree Kin

- 4 Warhawk Riders

With the following in backlog (coming soon!):

- 1 Waywatcher Noble

- 1 Wardancer Noble

- 1 Mounted Noble

- 1 Spellsinger

- 1 Noble on Stag

- Drycha

- Orion

- 12 Waywatchers

- 2 Great Eagles (6th edition)

- 2 Great Eagles (5th edition)

- 10 Wild Riders

And, for the grand finale:

- Naestra and Arahan on Forest Dragon

For a grand total of 147 models and approximately 3000 points painted, and 181 models and approximately 4500 - 5000 points in total including backlog.

Barring around 3 exceptions, if you can find it in the Wood Elves section of the 2005 Citadel Model Catalogue, I've got at least one of it either painted or awaiting painting.

This is definitely an each to their own, but I had no problem with things like the plastic chariots, or newer characters that you saw in the 7th. That plastic commander proved to me that the 6th Spear Elves were indeed too small. Match up what was cast in the 5th to what was produced in the 6th and then what is produced in the 7th, as far as heads goes, and the only head that is significantly out of place is the spear elves, which is even smaller than the Swordmasters heads. Everyone else matched each other within reason, but you would want to shave down a silver helm head with something like a pencil sharpener, which is something that I am still looking for. The dragon from the 7th is boring to me, especially compared to what is out there on the non-GW market. What I really did not like was the new plastic elite models. Those flying phoenix chariots was something that I avoided like the plague when it came out.
