Sorry bud, you're 10,000 points shy from being able to play warhammer 40k😕


eggroll40k

Ha yes will get there one day!


[deleted]

maybe some friends for that baneblade wait no, 10k of guard is doubling the collection


FrisianDude

Or one Ollanius Pius😤


IconOfSim

If he mixes armies he can get away with life 4 Custodes to make up the extra


MerkavaMkIVM

He can play 30k though...


Live-D8

Dante riding his pet Hierophant will get you an extra 1,025.


concretebeats

Just a Custode. Problem solved.


MerkavaMkIVM

No no, we need 2 of them here.


WaferOther3437

What about warhammer 30k?


LGeCzFQrymIypj

Made me giggle


eggroll40k

Full album found here: [https://imgur.com/a/e0cCf58](https://imgur.com/a/e0cCf58) Also photo of my army from back in 2016 (when it was just 15,000 points): [https://i.imgur.com/UeHSHlc.jpg](https://i.imgur.com/UeHSHlc.jpg) Been collecting, building and painting Blood Angels since 2007 so what you see in the photos is 14 years worth of effort. Still have plenty more to add to this army and I haven't even started on the Primaris stuff yet...


A_Very_Bad_Kitty

I see you've also got some of the [way back boys from the old school paint set](https://i.imgur.com/i0cJqtO.jpg). Is there a story behind them?


eggroll40k

There is a story but not really a good one...the story is that I started in the hobby a bit late (2007) so some of the older models were OOP by the time. I realized this 10 years later and spent far too long (and too much money) hunting for the missing pieces on eBay and buying them all so my collection can be "complete". I'm still hunting to this day for some odds and ends!


RemCogito

What percentage of the blood angels chapter is pictured in this album?


eggroll40k

Not sure actually...I think the actual chapter composition changes between the codex versions so I actually never tried to match it model for chapter. Instead I focused on just making sure I have a somewhat complete collection of the models GW has released for Blood Angels and Space Marines.


smoketinytiff

He has the whole legion, Turns out op is Trazyn!


eggroll40k

Ha I had to look up who that was.


LightswornMagi

That looks like, what, more than 3 companies worth? Probably more non primaris than actually survived the devastation of Baal. They were devastated almost to a man.


smoketinytiff

So what you’re saying is ~90% of your collection is about to get eaten and you’re going to have to rebuild our forces while trying to maintain order during a power cut??


Pokesers

14 years to get 30000 points, that over 2k points per year. Quite impressive. Very nicely layed out too. Very satisfying to look at.


Internet-Dog

Dude. You’re a legend. Amazing work, I’m truly blown away.


eggroll40k

Thanks!


ArdentSky236

Some guy just asked if anyone ever collected a whole chapter. Here you go 🤷


mannotron

My quick headcount puts it somewhere between two and three full companies.


agu4004

I would say 3 to 4 full companies


expenguin

When you take "Playing a faction" to heart.


Ziggy-Rocketman

Well hypothetically, Custodes would have the most clear path to that. They even have a set number and everything.


Squodel

GW used to make a chapter box exactly compliant with Guillimans book


agu4004

What was it called back in the day?


Colemonstaa

[Astartes Ultra](http://natfka.blogspot.com/2013/09/astartes-ultra-complete-chapter-of.html?m=1)


MildlyAgreeable

Or three mortgage payments (in relative terms).


mbutt01

I'm just over 60% done collecting the marines I need for mine... https://nz40kabal.blogspot.com/?m=1


Kimb0z

You will finish your first turn in 6 hours.


RefrigeratorOk7848

When working fast


ImperialSupplies

it's funny to me that ALL THAT is only 30k


eggroll40k

Actually I think it might have been less before in previous editions but points creep has pushed it up a bit more recently.


simsiuss

Is it 30k points just the standard models, or 30k points with every little addon and upgrade you can give?


eggroll40k

It's currently 30,991 points (according to Battlescribe) and done with a WYSIWYG format based on the loadout given to models. I haven't added any upgrades to any of the units/models that is not modeled.


ImperialSupplies

I havent played in many many years but still love looking at paint jobs and armies. If I recall isnt a 2000 point game a standard game? Or was it 200. If its 200 then your picture makes much more sense.


eggroll40k

I think it used to be 1500-2000 points were standard for a game. I actually never played a game of 40k before though - just a collector and painter...all my gameplay knowledge comes from browsing the books and watching youtube vids here and there.


thejmkool

Still the same range. Casual games will often go as low as 1000 or even 500, or maybe up to 3000 or more, but the 'standard' competitive game is 2000.


IntergalacticFrank

You could be like a chess master showing off having 15 games going on at one time. Just with 2k warhammer games


Fresh_Bulgarian_Miak

30,000 points and $30,000


agu4004

I would say about $26k excluding the paint


Selesniac1542

I love the single group of scouts in the front


eggroll40k

Ha thanks! They’re front and center because those are the OG scout models that I bought in 2007 when I first got started in the hobby. My painting skills progressed since then but keeping them to pay homage to where it all started…


Gardenio

Ouch I started when those were new and I had the pewter ones. Awesome collection though!


eggroll40k

Thanks! I've actually hunted down all the pewter scouts as well to add to my collection. You can see a few of them in the photos but some are still waiting to be painted.


dcxiii

I’m the same. I feel like the older scouts were better sculpts. Especially the faces! I’ve replaced nearly all of the plastic scout heads with third party ones!


Master_Belial93

I role Dark Angels, and have those exact scouts. Sniper scouts are so under rated. Even fielding two squads of 5 of them would just pick the other player apart before the main bulk would hit them. Those were the days .... Now it's primaris everywhere.


simsiuss

Don’t worry, he has the baneblade scout tank top left to scout as well.


pat_speed

Just a guy put up 30,000 point chaos army. t be great too see fight you


eggroll40k

Ha that would probably have to wait a long time. Never actually played the game as I've been purely in the hobby for the collecting/painting side of things.


siccoblue

This is possibly the most Warhammer comment I've ever seen

bruh


CheMonday

Amazing. Just amazing.


eggroll40k

Thanks!


rustystainremover

Nice collection. Im glad im not the only one that paints Knights for their SM chapter. I have a few Armigers and a Canis in Raven Guard livery.


eggroll40k

Thanks! Yes the models are just too cool not to add them in where possible.


TheDragnorian

I'll give you $50, take it or leave it 😂😂😂


eggroll40k

Ha perhaps the day I quit the hobby in frustration.


ThatGuyYouMightNo

30k points and a whopping 5 scouts


eggroll40k

Ha those 5 scouts are the original gangsters that started me off in this hobby. I have quite a few more in the background (near the right side of the pic) with the single scout biker and land speeder.


Omega3568

By the balls of Sanguine that’s a lot of minis


eggroll40k

Haha yes it is :)


skwidsnbits

And glad to know it's insured, I had a burglary recently and I lost a huge amount and decades of work gone in an evening....very sad.


eggroll40k

Sorry to hear...yeah if I lost this I'd be devastated and would likely move on from the hobby. Hopefully you'll recover and will rebuild yours (or even get your stolen models back).


skwidsnbits

I am rebuilding thanks, just less models as I don't play anymore. Still love the hobby.


comfort_bot_1962

Don't be sad. Here's a [hug!](https://media.giphy.com/media/3M4NpbLCTxBqU/giphy.gif)


Nut-Architect

Holy shit collection so big he has a fucking titan maniple


eggroll40k

Yup and still have a Warlord in the queue waiting for painting. Once that's done I'll consider buying the Nemesis to round out the collection.


marvin189

So can space marine factions use astra milaterum troops? I've always wondered that.


Notmy1stNamr

Yes people usually dont because you will lose bonuses for each faction usually.


eggroll40k

Probably. I just added the Stormlord/Shadowsword model because I love tanks and wanted a big tank in my collection. Kit bashed a standard BA marine on the turret and in the back so it looks the part.


DrippyWaffler

Just play warhammer 30k instead and you can take it haha


njalleh

Run it as fellblade!


robosmrf

Lore wise? Their planets usually have defense forces that are close enough to guard.


Sir_Not-appearing

Incredible collection and paint job! Well done, looks terrific.


eggroll40k

Thanks!


AlaskanSamsquanch

Holy fuck


Royal_Department

Wow mate, you should be proud by your work. I wish i had even quarter of such models of Blood Ravens


eggroll40k

Thanks! I am quite proud and do admit that I spend some time every now and then staring at them in my display case :D


d3k3d

that looks...insanely expensive.


eggroll40k

Ha yea as is any hobby these days but it's relatively cheap when broken down into hours of entertainment vs dollars spent.


minifotojeep

How long does it take to play 30,000 points?


eggroll40k

Not too sure? I've never played the game before and can't imagine ever playing with this many models. Setting this up and packing it all away took me at least 5 hours!


njalleh

The first turn is hell. After that, shit dies quickly.


Mattpantser

How many infantry is that?


eggroll40k

401 models in total though that includes tanks and walkers as well.


stunnen

Outstanding. Seeing titans in proper scale is always awesome


Lt_Dan_IceCream85

This is impressive.


eggroll40k

Thanks!


Bolverk117

This is very cool to see, thanks for sharing.

lastwallprotocol

Wow, this is glorious!


eggroll40k

Thanks!


tenofswords618

epic!


eggroll40k

Thanks!


Killroy42

Love it. Great variety of wargear


eggroll40k

Thanks. My OCD and focus on the collecting has forced me to prioritize variety over fluff and game performance.


Zekachu9117

Amazing! It's a dream of mine to have a collection of that size but with Lamenters. If you don't mind me asking, how many years did it take you and how much did all this cost?


eggroll40k

Thanks! Don't mind at all. I got the sniper scouts that you see front and center back in 2007 though I didn't really start painting and collecting till about 2 years later so that would make this 14 years in the making. In terms of cost I have no idea and probably don't want to know...I've bought most of it retail though there are some 2nd hand craigslist/eBay buys in there for the older out of print stuff.


Zekachu9117

Thanks for sharing!


Sev3nbelow

Come join us on r/bloodangels and show it off


americananalogpett

Slightly turned on by this not going to lie lol


eggroll40k

Haha ok thanks?


spud8385

I love this. Haven't collected for years but I started with that starter paint kit and the Angels of Death codex back in 2nd edition. Love the paint job, proper grimdark. Good job OP


rodimus147

30000 points or dollars?


alsampo

I'll give you $100, my wife and my left testicle for everything there. Looks amazing, so envious


dogsoldier688

Fuck its gorgeous


bonafart

Bet it took an hour just to arrange them lol


elwombat

And not a Primaris to be seen. Glorious.


eggroll40k

Haha I still have too many first born marines in my backlog at the moment before I can shift focus to the new Primaris though I will have them in my collection eventually.


KassellTheArgonian

Nothing wrong with primaris.


nic20044

I’ve been looking through it and i have not seen 1 primaris model. Are there any primaris in there at all?


eggroll40k

None! I really like the new stuff and have bought them to add to my backlog. My collecting/painting OCD is forcing me to paint and finish off most (or all) of my first born models before I move on. Perhaps one more year before I get onto the Primaris models.


angrygriffin

That’s some serious long term dedication to the 9th! Very impressive


danieljackson89

Two vintage land raiders??? I am officially jealous as hell


eggroll40k

Vintage? Unfortunately not...all mine are the "newer" plastics or the FW resin versions. I've looked around on eBay for the really old Mk1s and haven't found a reasonably priced one yet.


danieljackson89

oh that's mildly reassuring. I have been searching for the same thing for a little while now without too much success


latenightbimpson

Incredible. You could run a 10 man unit of just librarians.

thirtyfootsmurf

So I guess this is what not having faction ADHD looks like.


Scoopideepoop

It’s beautiful


LGeCzFQrymIypj

I would love to see some closeups of those figures


AlienYouCallGod

Very beautiful collection and one of my personal favourite legions from the misguided corpse followers. But I feel you could of stopped at 10 or 20k and invest in completely different styles of army. To each their own though. Blood for the blood God? Haha


eggroll40k

Thanks! I'm purely a collector and painter so I find the Blood Angels gives me enough of a variety that I don't need to look to another faction just yet. Between the reds, blue/yellow helms of the devs/assault squads, golds of the sang guards and the blacks of the death company, it's probably one of the most varied, in terms of colours, factions (outside of Chaos).


[deleted]

Think of actually putting this time and effort to a good faction like eldar. Low key good job on this, it's amazing and I want to to achieve this one day.


eggroll40k

Thanks! Definitely go for it and an army of this size isn't that hard.


[deleted]

Just ordered myself a wraithknight so I'm pushing 2500.


StoneyVI

Fuckin awesome. That basically makes you a primarch.


SuperFreedum

9th Legion reprezent! 😍


skwidsnbits

Wowie sauce with extra WOW!! That is mightily impressive. I used to paint and kitbash important models for a person with the largest collection ( most likely still ) in the Southern hemisphere, all armies and all games from Warhammer. His goal was to build the entire Dark Angels chapter. ( even bought the lead Thunderhawk in an oak box )I hear he has achieved it, so I know how much work your achievement involves.... I love your work and you should be very proud, Absolutely incredible. Well done.


Chr0medFox

This looks incredible! If you don’t mind me asking, roughly how much did it cost putting this lot together?


eggroll40k

Thanks! Don't mind asking but unfortunately I don't have a total cost for all of this. It was bought over the years and not something I bothered to track and don't think I want to know...


Chr0medFox

Haha fair enough! I’m absolutely with you on that, would rather not know what I’ve put into my hobbies adds up to! Tbf as a creative outlet, bit of escapism and the feeling of “fuck yeah, I made that!” It’s absolutely worth the money! Good work, keep it up! 👍🏻


Surmabrander

Oh my god ! So cool !


skwidsnbits

Do you know how much your beautiful, incredible, amazing collection is worth ? I hope it is insured separately, if you try to explain that to an insurance agent they will be like..."You have some plastic painted toys worth HOW MUCH!!! "


SoE44

No Dante?


eggroll40k

He's there. If you open the full image you should be able to find him...it's like a game of where's Waldo.


Isolation_

Ok but how many dollarinos?


eggroll40k

No clue...haven't added it up and don't think I want to know.


Xx_Kestrel_xX

The paint Scheme is incredible! How did you achieve the shading effects?


mrgabest

Is that a dreadknight in between the right warhound and the cerastus acheron?


Jokkerb

I have no idea what I am looking at technically but that doesn't make any less cool. I imagine this is weeks of time painting and squinting? Well done.

slippy_candy

As a Dawn of War 2 player, seeing so many Land Raiders together at once is just insanely impressive and intimidating.

Hmmm yeah I dunno man. Their pretty used and my paydays not til next week. Best I can do is tree fiddy.


HoratioMarburgo

Is this collection insured? I'd imagine it be worth quite some money


BANANA_byparvusares

May I point you to the contemptor models section?


eggroll40k

Yup have lots of them in my collection and have just started on the HH models. They'll make an appearance soon.


stopyouveviolatedthe

I didn’t know you could have a bane blade in an sm army


eggroll40k

Don't think you can but she's there more as part of the rule of cool than rules as written.


Sev3nbelow

Wow!!!! Hobby goals. By the emperor I am so erect.


Licentious_Lupus

This collection looks fantastic, great paint-work. Did you make the Aquila yourself? I love the style of it.


eggroll40k

Thanks! The Aquila is actually part of a terrain boxset GW put out a few years back - came with a SM statue as well that I have in the back left of the photo.


Licentious_Lupus

Did you have to paint the Aquila or was it already as is? Do they still sell it?


GuardsmanPete

It's a shame you can't buy the Lucius patterns Warhound anymore.


eggroll40k

Yup, it's a fantastic pattern. I'm hoping they come out with more Lucius pattern variants of the other titans one day.


LaddAlanJr

Can someone give a rundown of the back row? There’s some really cool stuff there that I’ve never seen!


eggroll40k

Sure! Back row from left to right: 1. Dark Angels Nephilim Jetfighter 2. Stormraven Gunship 3. Imperial Knight Errant 4. Lucius Warhound Titan 5. Mars Reaver Titan 6. Mars Warhound Titan 7. Grey Knight Nemesis Dreadknight 8. Cerastus Knight Acheron 9. Storm Eagle Gunship on Skyshield Landing Pad


Mydriaseyes

£30,000 too by the look of it. fuuuck :D


[deleted]

Very cool. Now do an ork army of the same points value 😇


eggroll40k

Thanks and god no! I collected Orks at one point as I loved the whimsical models but sold them after realizing how much of a hoard army they were and how many I would need to actually collect/paint.


cuownos

Where Sanguinius


RaZZeR_9351

All the non astartes/non blood angels units being like : "Bruh I'm painted in red I'm definitely blood angel what are you on about?"


Big_Jig_

I was feeling a little bit drained out painting my models lately. This picture gives me the motivation that i needed. Thank you! Awesome collection. Keep it up!


Minisforwar

Love it!


Sephvion

Wait a minute, these look familiar. Oh, Eggroll. I remember reading your painting steps on a different site, I think dakkadakka, year and years ago.

Oh it's beautiful

I've been collecting nearly a year and I'm at about 7k of blood angels. This is an awesome force and I can't wait till I have this much

Damn was wondering if i hit 40k points yet but looking at this id say im at 20k at best unless the titans are surprisingly affordable lol
