PostSubject: How many points of Dark Eldar you actually have?   Mon Feb 06 2012, 16:28

I was looking at my unbuilt Tantalus, box of new on sprue units, unit upon unit on the shelf built for an army list that changed at some point and rendered them redundant. I'm starting to think that I have quite a lot, probably in the region of 3-5k which obviously fluctuates based on upgrades etc. I'm sure my force will be dwarfed by many, especially those hailing from the US of A as they tend to have bigger armies.

How much do you have? Is there a point that you want to stop once reached? What % of your army is painted let alone built?

Working out my list for my Apoc game in 2 weeks, I hit 5K and hadn't counted a load of Wracks, Wyches, Reavers or my Chronos and Talos...I probably have too much! Smile

I counted my standing force to go for about 2,5k without excessive bling, easily squeezing out 3,5k on Apocalypse with special characters and such.

1912 without any point spent on wargear.

Most of it is not finished, which is depressing.
Damn - gotta go to Monthly Vow thread.

I played a 5k game and had left over raiders and didn't use my court or beast packs. I have since then added 2 flyers, a tantalus, more court, 5 grotes, 11 more scourges, 3 more venoms, 10 more wyches, more wracks, and 15 reavers. Most need painting, and alot need assembled, but I would guess near 10k points. planning to add more coven, about 8 more jets, and 3 reapers, and some super-heavies.

Final total once I have everything I plan added should be near 20k, much of it will be scratch built super-heavies. Keep me painting modeling for few years at least, especially with breaks to work on my unpainted craftworld and corsair armies. (orks, nids, marines will say in closet for as far as I can foresee, they haven't been out since 3rd edition anyway)

First army I had back in 1999/2000 was dark eldar, and first models I saw were craftworld eldar from there 3rd edition codex release. So, eldar are the iconic 40k race to me, never understood the marine craze.

Roughly 2,000 painted, roughly another 3,500 unpainted/unassembled. If you count my old school DE army, well, we're looking at roughly 4,000 on top of that...In other words-I have too much stuff. It would be interesting/depressing to add up. Mad

On quick tally I have about 2000+ fieldable. That's not going mad with upgrades but with taking 2 HQs

I've only just started painting. I'm planing to do characters + infantry. Then do vehicles, bikes and beasts.

Currently around 1500 in old models and about 3500 in new - and it should all be paintined thin 4 weeks!

Around 4k not including special characters or excess upgrades all painted and no Coven units at all. And a shocker only 2 raiders and 2 venoms and I win a lot of my games, never be afraid to sacrifice a unit for advantage.

Too many? I may have to go with that.

I would say about 6k in Dark Eldar. But I have been kicking around the idea to start a dark carnival Haemonculi army, so we'll see if it STAYS at 6k.

I'm at about 8,000 fieldable (unassembled doesn't count)
I'd say about 1,500 of that isn't painted and is just basecoated - rough guess.
2,000 or so is just HQ options...

If we add in my Apoc stuff I get around 9.5K (custom Titan-counts as Revenant and a special Talos-esque MC)

I want to see abjectus take some pictures of 20K of DE, that would be AWESOME!

I was gifted about 2000 points worth @ Christmas, originally she-who-must-be-obeyed planned on ordering me a megaforce, but I seriously doubt if those even made it to Canada. So a battle force plus bits and bobs (and a convenient rummage sale for some old school models) has me at about 3000 points. Thank goodness Ive got some time off due to having a bionic knee installed, otherwise they probably wouldn't have got assembled till August. So my adventure through the webway begins!

I have upwards of 6k, but have not yet begun to collect what I intend to be a ridiculous amount of beasts and beastmasters, or nearly has many grotesques as I hope to have, nor do I yet have any FW reapers or tantaluses.

Once I have 20k painted it will be pictured, Thor665, but that was planned end point, current is more like 10k, and mostly unpainted/badly painted from back in 3rd edition. I still have to assemble tantualus I bought 2 months ago for example, not even cleaned resin yet.

Sad

Ah well - I really should try to do some full army shots of my force at some point, just for the ridiculous value of it.

I have 1000pts workable as an army, plus Lelith, two boxes of hellions that I have yet to assemble and an old metal talos that I picked up at a car boot sale for £1.

I'm fairly new to DE (started at Christmas), I'm forcing myself to paint each unit before I buy the next, but the hellions are sorely testing my patience though, I really must get on and do them.
