I was thinking: What is your main army - if you have one!

Me I can't make my mind up over MI and Bugs,
So at present I am collecting both!

Then there is light MI!!!

And I am leaving skinnies to Anton (for now)

Well I have 1000pts of Skinnies :roll:

I wanted the MI, but haven't worked out the full points value yet :)

And there's no one in my gaming group doing bugs so had to do them, not that I minded there great Mini's :D

All I have to do now is get round to painting them :(

I have all three right now! I am aiming at being able to field a company of MI (because I am a sick, sick man!), I have a skinnie raiding force of about 1000 points, though I know this will grow when the plastics come out, and I have my bug horde! 78 warriors, 12 hoppers, and 10 firefries once I receive all the stuff that I have ordered. Then of course I still have to order the tanker and the brain and the plasma... :twisted:

Well, I don't actually have any armies, yet! I'm waiting impatiantly for the delivery of my box set. :P

Tentativly, I am planning on collecting about 1000 points of both MI and Bugs to start. This is partially because both look so cool I wanted to, and partly because I don't yet know anyone else who is collecting SST. Hopfully after running a few game using my own resources, I will be able to get some other people interested in collecting their own armies. :wink:

i collect both, but at the moment i have more MI then bigs(at lest point wise). However in 9/10 games played so far, i have played bugs 9 times, and MI once.

I am planning equal armies. hte Ideas is that even if no one around here ends up playing it, i will still have enough forces to have a large battle with a friend.

We're going to do both in our house that way we get even armies to pit agianst each other, although I think I like the bug options and their finer points over the MI.

I'm getting both in equal numbers, pointswise.

I'll probably buy a bunch of skinnies later. Finished, I have about 2000 pts or so of MI right now and about 1500 pts of bugs so I obviously need to get more bugs.

Of course now that warmaster ancients is out, they both might be on hold for a little while as I get some Roman civil war figs together.,

Have 40 fully painted bugs, and 18 fully painted and based MI. Still working on more of each, and when the Skinny armies are release, I will add them also. So, with time all things SSG!!

Unlike other games I've done, I'm going to have a little bit of each army (MI, Bugs, Skinnies), although I'll probably have more MI that anything else.

Ooooo... shiny....

That's one of the nifty things about getting in at the start of a game, lots of possibilities. 8)
