I am now nearing one billion seconds of age and i will be collecting (i assume) for the rest of my life ... i am curious as to the largest army you people have seen. How many points was it? What army and how many models?

Krefey has an entire Chapter of Space Marines, call that at least 1,000 models.

Shall we set the bar there and see if anyone can top that?

what are a billion seconds of age?

and regardless of what army you're talking about have you actually done the point math on it?

I never really understood people who got more than a "functional" army for a race. Like I get the have one of everything thing and the be able to put x on the table, but I don't get either of krefey or morachis collections.

Impressive as these collections are, I think I'd be more impressed if this level of resources was piped into a "Specialist Game" of some sort. Warhammer Quest, Necromunda, Mordheim, Blood Bowl or Space Crusade with a complete collection of hundreds of painted miniatures would be awesome, and you wouldn't have to rely on your opponent having 60,000 points worth of army to use against you.

There's plenty of people who have *giant* collections of Epic especially. And Blood bowl.

A bit over 30 years old?

I have over 2 million seconds of Bad Rats logged, but that doesn't sound as impressive.

Nah, could have done way more if I was truly dedicated.

Next milestone is 3.6 million seconds but that will take a while because I don't dedicate enough Dogecoin Futures to it.

I dont have one big army.

I have from 4K -16K in each army. For every army(except the really new ones smile.gif>> alwasy something new to get) Can field 3 of most things and 6 troops often.

EDIT: (heh I just looked at Moriachi's eldar list and i actually have 70-100% to his normal units (except the stormguardians and jetbikes & warlocks yikes). Just dont have the Warmachines section and FW subclans > only 1 revenant and less flyers/tanks mine are usually magnetised weapons rather than having 3 of each type.. and where he has 40 i only have 30...) So maybe I have more than I think... lol.


in about 700 million secs of collecting.

Closer to 1200 once you include vehicles, characters and command squads. I really should finish painting it. Not much left to do really.

Sorry beat you..... my Lazy space marine force is bigger(if I count the infantry bases as 5 figures), although on the smaller scale.... tongue.gif.... 65000 points and counting, although the Eldar are sitting at about 75000 points and counting.. biggrin.gif
