Default How many points can you squeeze into a single force org.

I'm at 20,000 points in a single, legal force org. Can you fit more points into a single force org?

My army:
Guard w/ the mechanized doctrine.

As many high-priced Guants as possible upgraded as much as I can give them.

Ulthwe is a hands-down winner, as they have an infinate size on their Seer Council (thus infinate points).

Chaos can be pretty ridiculous with it's Veteran Skill system though.

20 Chaos Space Marines w/ Counter-Attack, Furious Charge, Infiltrate, Move Through Cover, Night Vision, Seige Specialists, Tank Hunters - 600pts

That's 3600 in Troops choices... now onto the simmilarly upgraded, 10-man Chaos Biker units!

Triple Land Raiders with every vehicle upgrade each?

IG.

Infintry Platoon.

Infintry Squad, 1 sargent, 9 gaurdsmen. # pnts
Vetern Sarge +# pnts
Lascannon +# pnts
Plasma or Melta +# pnts
Vox-Caster +# pnts
Krak gernades +#x10 modles = +#pnts
Melta bomb on sarge +# pnts
Master Craft Plasma Pistol +# pnts
Master Craft CC weapon +# pnts
Carpace armor on sarge +# pnts
Bionics on sarge +# pnts

Total of 184

Now remember you can have up to 5 infintry platoons to make a single platoon.

So, 184x5= 920

Then if you read the special rule, remnants, so that tacks on another 8 gaurdsmen and makes the total

968

Now for the juinor officer #pnts
2 Anti-tank support sqauds #x2=#pnts
a totaly of 6 lasscannons #x6=#pnts.
Another Lascaon, becasue I can # pnts
16 gaurdmen with krak and frag nades 16x#=# pnts.
Master Craft Plasma Pistol # pnts
Master Craft Power Fist # pnts
Melta bomb # pnts
Carpace armor # pnts
Bionics # pnts
Macharian Cross # pnts
Surveyor # pnts
Krak nade # ptns
Frag nade # pnt

Total of 433



Now for a total of 1401

But what's that? Skills and drills? Docrine points?

Let us see...

Carpace Armor! # per infintry Sqaud
Cyber enchancements! # per squad!
Hardenfighters! # per squad!
Sharpshooters! # per squad!

And if you want a maxed list you need to save one of your D poitns.

So lets see, thats 75 points per squad, times 5, makes another 375 to the total!



So, the Grand total, the most you can spend on a single IG troop choice.

1776

But lets say you want to fill that other 6 slots

1776 x 6 = 10656

Choke on that chaos!

Fully Tooled i could get Catachans into the 25,000 region.

If i could use Straken as My HQ and have a unit of grey knight termies with a brocaptain as my other i could get up to 30,000.
Three fully tooled Devil squads would be a HUGE points boost, 9 men, 3 special weapons, a veteran sergeant with full upgraees and a Devil Veteran officer with full upgrades is around 800 points (i think) for just one team!
