Default Money Spent on your army

Hey all. I just started this post because I am curious how much you have spent on your army/armies. After playing for a few years I wanted to calculate what I have put into this very expensive hobby. This doesn't have to include glue, paint, etc. but if you wish to include this you can(note if so). List the Amount of money you have spent and a general description of what you army includes, then list the price. Also if you have the total points of your army that would be good information to include. Tax is included, as is shipping if you went the Ebay route.

My space wolves include:
1.) A space marine commander box(Plastic)
2.) Rune priest(Wolf guard battle leader)
3.) Wolf Priest(converted)
4.) Rune priest(Converted)
5.) 50 space marines
6.) venerable dreadnought
7.) Dreadnought
8.) Predator
9.) Vindicator
10.) Landraider crusader
11.) Whirlwind
12.) 2 rhinos
13.) 50 nickels, counter weights for under the bases of my 50 marines.
14.) Space Marine Codex, Space wolf codex
My army of space wolves costs: $619.57
total points: 2392
