Hmmm, 5 years... that's a harsh one. Lets see:

Space Marines
Wood Elves
High Elves
Chaos Daemons
Nids 5th
Ogres 8th
Daemons of Chaos
Imperial Guard
Necrons 5th
Orcs & Goblins

(in more or less the right order too)

... there doesn't seem to be an option for 16. Weird.
Then again if your talking about money spent I did buy a few of those while a staff member, which is always nice.

As for rulebooks- 4th and 5th hardbacks for 40k, 8th hardback for WFB. I got all my mini-BRBs from eBay, so GW get nothing for them (I refuse to carry and damage the huge ones, and certainly don't want the starter kits).

Personally only bought IG, DA and SM Codices, but within the Gaming Group I belong to we have all of them....either because the armies are collected by members, or just so we know the in's and out's of an army.

The Group do the same for the Fantasy range, and I also personally bought OK, Dwarfs, and the FW Chaos Dwarfs so needed to buy the Tamurkhan book.

And the Rulebooks of course...4th/5th Ed 40K, WFB 8th Ed.

All of the ones pertaining to 40K, including Necrons. That includes non-Forge World supplements too, so Battle Missions and so on.

So far, 3 Codicies and 1 BRB. I bought AoBR and the Marine 'dex at one time, eventually bought the Dark Angels book because someone gifted me a Ravenwing battleforce, and finally bought the Necrons book because of the "shiny" factor at the time. However, I have traded off the 'Crons 'dex and use the Dark Angels for my own chapter's 'dex.

It's suprising how they add up. of the armies I actually have, I have orks, eldar, tomb kings, and wood elves. Then I still have a grey knights, space wolves, and space marines. I like to keep codexes, even old ones, I think it's really fun to read old rules and fluff on a slow day.

I buy them retail because I have an excellent local gw. The manager is a credit to games-workshop, and I'd rather spend a few extra dollars and support him.

$0. (Got the BRB in a used AoBR box)

If I could get a printable digital format of all codices I would easily pay $100 for permanent access.

That I was loved for who I am
And missed the opportunity
To become a better man

All of them except tomb kings and latest empire(which is to come for my son) I'm not sure eldar is that recent but I don't have that one either. The reason is simple I've been at this for 2 decades and have all the armies except brets, eldar and now tomb kings which got added to my vamps. As for the future fantasy is on hold and won't be restarted any time soon due to reduced points and increased prices, shame really as I love fantasy.
