This is what a 40,000 point 40k army looks like (well, exactly is 38,563 paints but close enough). I've been working on this project for a year now. I did paint other stuff during that time including a few small Chaos forces but these are just the Imperials. I'm hoping double this for next year!
And no, I do not own all of these models! Many of them are commission projects including the Elysians, Blood Angels, and some of the titans. Total model count is 566 infantry and 100 tanks. And I know people will ask so I did the math on the retail - $15,300.46 currently. I didn't include OOP models or bundle deals. And I'm certain a lot of the FW was bought before BREXIT so I think it balances out. That doesn't include prices for painting but that's about $20/$25 for an infantry model of which there are 566 of...
Special thanks to the following people for making this possible:
Vinh Nguyen: my brother who shot these photos and edited them. Plus he put together 6 of the Legio Astorum Imperial Knights.
Chris Long: assembly. He does most of my resin models including the Blood Angel's Rhinos and 5 Warhound Titans (all this year!)
Maxwell Hill: He did most of the painting on the Warlord and I am painting the Elysians including the planes for him.
David Abitbol: commissioned the Blood Angels all of the assembly except the Rhinos.
Jaime Noakes: Did the bulk of the paintwork on the Cadian tanks before I bought the army from him.
Chase Sale: assembly on the Elysian infantry before I bought them.
