I have 14 as playable armies everything but Dark Angles and Space Wolves, most to Apocalypse size and painted (with mixed success on the table top). I like to think I am a collecting and painting machine which 11 years in the hobby has turned me into. I also get bored easy so never paint/play the same army more than 2 week in a row.

6 for me if SM and DA count. I only use them as vanilla now, coz i'm not as fussy as James ;) or should that be 'i'm immoral?'

Well. I started off with Tau, (currently have about 15'000pts), and then went to Dark Angels, (about 10'000pts). I also collect Grey Knights, About 3'000pts), and have started a Sisters of Battle army to.
When I get chance. I would like to collect an Imperial Guard drop troop army. :-)

Let's see with 25+ years playing and collecting what have I got:
Space Marine - Vanilla Codex, Death Company Blood Angels, Space Wolves, Worldeaters Pre-Heresy, Dark Angels
Chaos Space Marines - Khorne
Chaos Daemons
Eldar - Craftworld, Corsairs, Harlequin
Orks (including Dread Mob List from IA)
Necrons
Tau
Tyranids (plus Genestealer Cult)
Imperial Guard - Catachan, Valhallan, Mordian, original PDF Guard
Sisters of Battle

And my latest challenge for Tempus Fugitives - Adeptus Mechanicus Force

Puts me at 22 forces at 2000pts each with 5 reaching Apocalypse size 6000pts

Still lacking a Dark Eldar or Grey Knights army, but not in much of a rush to do them - happy to send my time facing them.

Wow, forgot this poll was even here. Seems that during the upgrade a couple of years ago the poll got broken and only allowed 1 option to be selected. I've fixed it and it now also allows votes to be changed at any time.

Heh, I'm a stereo typical fan-boy apparently...

I managed to pick all 3 of the double digit fan favorites...
Mine are:
Marines
Chaos Marines
IG
Orks
Tyranids

Sadly I haven't bought much lately and with the latest price increases on the way I have no urge to start another army.

4 if you count my Loyalist Guard and Traitor Militia Guard as 2 armies

All 4 are at Apoc levels - both Gaurd forces have Super heavy Support

I've got three.

SM, more or less painted. Still need to paint 6 tactical Marines and have done since the last Codex came out to make the Tactical squads legal.
Tau. 3/4s painted. Got hacked off with them after using Purity Seal and half of them went white, managed to rescue them though last year. Was thinking of selling them but might wait and see what 6th ed brings Tau wise.
Steel Legion IG. Not really painted, they were until I decided that as they had been done a long time ago and I've got a lot better at painting since they were done that I would strip them off and repaint them. Managed to get around 15 Guardsmen done but one of those projects I haven't quite got round to doing yet though.

All my armies are just over standard game size, around 1800 pts.

I checked 5. 2 Apoc sized collections, 1 just over 2k sized collection, a 1500pt collection, and a 750pt collection. Not to mention the armies of the other games I play.

Nine months on and I've modified 1 of my forces and added 1 more force to my collection:
With the release of Horus Heresy Books - especially Massacre I've now got a legal Adeptus Mechanicus force ~1500pts
Plus my latest venture is the Heresy Sons of Horus which is going to start at 1500pts.

Still no Dark Eldar or Grey Knights for me - I'm not really tempted by the new codexes, did get a WraithKnight for my Eldar but managed hold my wallet on the Riptides for my Tau.

2014 is going to be all about WH30K for me, unlikely to buy anything other than Forgeworld in the coming 12 months - which probably means I'll be spending more than I would if going normal GW.
At least the basic Horus Heresy Marine list can't change much (just probably another 4-7 Big Black Books of additional FW models and rules)

Guess I'm still a GW Fan Boy at heart!!!

I've got about 6500 points of BA in various stages of paint.

BUT I've just dropped 350 quid on the start of a nid army. Thankfully I've not played them before and can look upon the new book with fresh eyes! (Apposed to spitting acid at every page like others maybe doing...)

I'll try and give progress pictures and such on building, painting and playing this new (to me) army if people are interested.

You can take a look at some of my blood angels on my twitter @leemachine
