For me it all started with Gyre-Viper. It's his fault. Seriously.

oh.. and damn if it isn't f'in awesome to stand in front of an army of Hiss tanks and Crimson Guards after several beers pacing back and forth than yelling orders.
Nah, I wouldn't do that.
that would just be foolish.
I've said too much.

I go with this cuz I also used collect 40k (joes have side tracked this ) and I have enough armies(I currently own a sizable force of 1500pts for every army in the 40k universe)
to cover a two large rooms.
did I also mention I have several Titans for 40k scale too !
Feedback for me

I just think a set up looks a lot better when you have multiples of guys like Cobra Soldiers or Bats. Having one Cobra Soldier next to Cobra Comander looks lame, have 40 cobra Soldiers behind Cobra Comander looks awesome!

It's cooler to take a pic of snake eyes taking out a group of 10 uniformed cobra troops rather then randoms. The idea of 1 overcoming many.
Mother of Pearls....thats a Beaut!

I only started army building with the ME line. I used to go into the store and see nothing but Vipers. I really got into it with the IG/Viper CP and really liked the look of multiple faceless legions to menace my Joes. Availability and finances(and the wife asking "don't you have that already?") Kept it reasonable but I would love more troops. I kept things at about 5 but IGs, Vipers and Mars troops went to 10.

I army build. Why? Well, I like to set them up and take pictures. It gives me joy seeing a well set up army of soldiers lined up in formation. I don't buy multiples of named characters though, unless it is a new style change or outfit change. I also enjoy army building vehicles for the same reason stated above. Army building is just another way to collect.

For me it's all about making up for the childhood pain of only having one lonely cobra officer, trooper, viper, etc etc... for my cobra army.
I try to get at least 5 of each now... OCD demands it.
Here's what I'm troopbuilding so far:
5 defense of cobra island strato vipers
5 rise of cobra jet pack strato vipers
5 roc paravipers
5 red ninjas
13 cobra soldiers (all with black masks and black webgear only)
6 cobra officers
5 cobra vehicle gunners (dark gray and red soldiers)
4 stinger drivers
9 snow serpents
11 crimson guards
7 cobra divers
2 roc eels
4 iron grenadiers
And like most people are saying- It just looks awesome seeing a group of the same figure set up on your shelf, instead of just one of each.
I also troop build vehicles too... There isn't enough space on this thread (or in my room, really) for all of them- But I try to get at least 3 of everything. Except H.I.S.S. tanks.
Can't have too many H.I.S.S. tanks.
