Well, you saw the question, and I would like to encourage you all to post images(I'm gonna do that sometime soon) of your army(also preferbly 1 big picture of your army)

Unless you prefer taking a lot of smaller shots.

If I play my fluffy, full army with doctrines and armoured support it racks up to about 5k, probably a little more now since I've picked up an extra squad or 2 since my last count. There's spare models on top of that as well, but they don't fit into the list. Once I finish fixing my chimeras and sentinels tomorrow I'll take a couple new full army pics. There's some floating around on the board currently (browse back through the army list board if you feel like going on an adventure, it's in there)

I hope to get to "Too high to count", and I have about (from the top of my head, no real counting) 8,000~ish. This includes:

Over 10 Leman Russ Tanks
3 Baneblades
Shadowsword
Marauder Destroyer
Only about 70 actual Guardsmen.

But I am "re-doing" my forces, and the men I have now will become some of the Drop elements of my force. The new stuff will be the main foot-sloggers, and later I'll get more tanks.

13th Dal'yth Company is planned at 100 men plus (43 vehicle Crewmen, 57 infantrymen, Officer Sherwin Jackson and his bodyguard Korl Moor, seven Fio, eight drones, and one Ethereal), and ranks in at a cool 3K points.

It's not that I take it far points-wise; I'm very fluff-oriented when it comes to my armies. Whereas my Kroot Mercs were pretty generic on a per-model basis, my IG are unique to a man, with no two models being identical.

I LOVE the guard, but i have not enough money to buy loads. I've got a 1000pts army, but planning for at least 2000pts.

I'm going more for strong units (ie stormtroopers, rough riders and ogryns0 rather than large mob of guardsmen.

If I pulled my finger out an put the accumalated bits together it would top 10k pts at the moment, trying to persuade myself it's time to cap it at that - or at least until what I've got is finished.
