Must be around 20 different 'factions' in 15mm. About half a dozen different humans, the rest various aliens. Old, old Ral Partha, original Traveler, a bunch of 15mm.co.uk.

Of course, I have several hundred 28mm (mostly GW), as well as a significant number of 6mm (original Ogre, several other manufacturers and some GW Epic I haven't painted yet).

I was doing a little cataloging the other night, in order to see how many 1:100th (15mm–18mm) scale sci-fi factions I have, and to try to remember which ones. It's been a while since I looked at them, since most are unpainted, and many were purchased years ago.

I know there are a decent number of them, but couldn't recall a lot, due to all the variety, from various manufacturers. Some stood out more, since I've got a platoon, or even in some cases, a full company of them at 1:1 ratio.

I'm still not done, but have a rough idea of how many I have, and was a bit surprised by the number.

So, thought I'd ask others to chime here as well, to see how many you all have too, that you use, plan to use for your sci-fi battles and skirmishes, or just own?

To count, my definition of a "faction" is at least one squad or more of five to six plus figures of the same type (usually, my squads/factions consist of eight to twelve-plus personnel, or aliens; in some cases, 30 to 40 figs, and in a few, 120+ figs of the same faction). Doesn't have to be a hard-and-fast rule, if you use only four or less, but I'd generally categorize those as a fire-team.

For some categories, I group them roughly together, e.g. human adventurers, though if a ship's crew, or freighter crew, I'd count the latter two separately. Same goes for police, robots, humans in vacc suits by type (heavy is one, and light vacc suits are another, and both are different than civilians/soldiers/aliens not in vacc suits), human Planetary Defense Forces (PDF), etc., etc. UNSC Hardsuits and Light Troopers count as two "factions," since they look a bit different.

Note – if you plan to use modern, or older human figures as opponents, you can include them in the listing here too (I'm using Cold War-era Bundeswehr troops for my Planetary Defense Force, since they're low tech relative to more futuristic societies, but look good, and have a nice rocket-propelled A/T weapon). Also, if you've got a full company of three to five platoons of figures (same goes for multiple squads in a platoon), of the same type/race/species, those only count as one faction, generally, so please don't over-count them.
