Default Biggest horde?

Recently I saw a 2500pts Fantasy Battle (Southlands) at my local club between a mate(who would turn out to be our own Mr.Shrike)who used Wood Elves,against the dude who runs our club using Lizardmen.The Wood Elf force came to only around 70 models, whence the Lizardmen wielded a deadly horde of 172 Skinks,plus others,coming to over 200 models total! This brought me to thinking ' I wonders what the biggest horde ever was.',and thought to ask the folkies in the TO crew,so here I am (Da-naaaaaaa!).What's the hordiest army you've ever seen?(Fantasy or 40k,remember to include pt. value,folks) ;D

a tyranid assault on fortress carcasson against the cadian 9th. there where two guard armies, 2 tyranid armies and a small marine army. one of the tyranid armies(which provided the bulk) consisted of: A hive tyrant, 3 carnifexes(shoveller-tusker thingy) and 6 squads of maxed out gaunts(most squads where the gaunts with the spine fist guns and some horma gaunts thrown in for good luck). IG can make bigger armies but ive never seen it done.

I saw a guy who used small guard platoons, and as much conscripts as he could take! It was a 2000pt battle, so, you do the math...

Tyranids; 1500 point battle he brought 198 models. (the gaunts were 5 point ones for the most part, and he brought gargoyles too)

Oh, and I beat him too!

I fielded about 200ish models (3 full Infantry Platoons at just over 500pts/pop, blingy Command HQ and 3 squads of heavily kitted out Hardened Veterans) in a 2000pt Imperial Guard cityfight army...you can, of course, get far more if you don't tool up your squads with full weapons, Light Infantry and Xeno-Fighters. I proudly fielded no vehicles, no plasma weapons and no heavy weapons (except sniper rifles, which every squad that could take DID take) and even made my officers hard (well, hard ENOUGH) in combat. Not like any Imperial Guard army I ever fought against :P

Fighting in a city, to me, means no heavy weapons, no tanks and a complete reliance on stealth, independant formations, flamers and snipers. It was a nasty army and did it's damage in a city...but, as with all ironic twists, just AFTER I sell off the army...I find out there's a global cityfight campaign about an attack on an Imperial world.

Ha.

We once had some punks wanting to face us in a mega battle.

But once they figured out we could had and could use over 8 leman Russes, and 6 other Heavy vehicles, they changed their minds.

;D gotta love it when Armor company players decide to team up.
