Recently I've noticed that the rate which I add to my armies seems to fluxuate over the course of the years, obviously the highest rate is during holiday season and such. But I have also noticed that, alongside the aforementioned annual fluctuation, people appear to have different collecting styles as well. In 3 years I created my 6,000+ point Warriors of Chaos army, and in 1 1/2 years I created my 1900-2200 Chaos Space Marine army. I would like to know how fast you all build armies and (if viable) start new ones. Thanks ahead of time :mrgreen:

3.5 years ago I started Blood Angels (I skipped 4th edition). I have 2500 points painted and another 1000 points to go.

1 year ago I started Plague Marines. I have 600 points painted and 1400 points to go.

It takes me forever to build stuff and get it painted because I have only 2-3 hours a week to paint and I'm slow and clumsy with a brush.

At this rate the heat death of the universe will occur before I paint my Storm Raven Gunships and terminators.

As a University student, I tend to only buy items when there's some sort of deal.

I.e The anniversary sale, where I bought 2 necron battleforces and 2 barges to start my new 1500-1750pt army.

i sually start new armies on my birthday or christmas (usually a battleforce, codex, and some form of hq), and i always try and get up to 1000points asap. Then it usually takes me around a year to get up to 2000points, which is a point i am happy with and then, even though i will continue to expand that army, i will usually start another.

i would say go for it as well, the only thing with doing something like that is, even though at the time your pretty sure thats what you wanna do, there will come a point where you wish you hadn't sold your bike

Yes, yes and YES!!! Do it man! Bikes are expensive with gas and all :wink: !!!! Thats pretty cool, Id love to drop 2500k on warhamer all at once!

On topic: I usually go pretty crazy when Im really into an army. I started Ogres with the new book and now have about 3k put together and paint, with another 2k waiting to be fixed up (bought used) and painted. Right now Ive bought a dwarf army (in Febrary).... about 3k worth and am about half way through.

Between 2,500, and 3,500 point Tau, with more incoming, (52/76) I've most of the Troops painted, 2 of 3 broadsides painted, have 12 crisis suits, with 2 fully painted, 6 near completion, and 4 needing to be primed. 2 out of 5 tanks painted. 2 out of 8 pathfinders painted. And the Piranha squad needs some work, but is mostly painted.

Been collecting for about a 1.5 year. and I have no. time. to. paint. :evil:

last year I have done a ton of addition to my armies, this year is kind of just fleshing out what I want when I want since I have all I need for both my GW factions, so I am kind of focusing on other games right now.
