Most Popular Build
 
Hey, I was wondering what you think the most popular build Total was.
I constantly make new list because... well I do, I guess I think about it to much or I just like variation. (Or, my memory just sucks and I have to make new lists...)

Anyways, when I do make new lists what point values should I focus on the most? Usually I do something like 1000, 1500, or 2000, but I know 1850/1750/1250 and others are really popular too, soo whats the most played?

Basically, if I were to want to have 3 lists always updated, which should they be?

Thats a pretty good question, I like to play 1850 and it seems like my opponent always has to right up a list for that point value...Although 1500 seems pretty popular. :search:

I would say the most popular is 1500, although i think 2000 is better because in 1500 you just can't field a tactically diverse force. I think having a list for 1500, 2000 and 1000 is fine, as it's not that hard to just add a unit or two to get up to 1750/1800.

I never play with 50 point totals, so I unno on that.
I always play 1500 or 2000. Very rarely we play small armies for fun.

Almost every single game I play is 1750 points.

My experience is that the four main points values people play are 1000, 1500, 1750, and 2000. It's never a bad idea to have army lists for each.

not only does this make your force more flexible for points, it will encourage you to think about how each element works with the others as a whole.

Agreed. I mainly use 2000 pt fantasy and 1500pts 40k, sometimes more.
Of course I am building a titan... :P

I often do 500 or 1000 pt "quick battles" if we don't have a tremendous amount of time (we ignore normal rules regarding how many troops, hq, etc.), but the standard I do is 1500 or 2000 pts.

The most typical battle size that I play is the 1500 point games.
