Science fiction, fantasy, historicals, whatever.

I would think that "pure" historicals would require the most. Tournament games would seem to be self limiting, since you would quickly find the "best" army for 2000 points, and not go much over.

So, probably a period where you feel a need to keep buying more units would win. It would also depend on regiment or battalion size.

For me personally, I think it would be American Revolution. As soon as I find a new flag or uniform, preferably both, I always need to paint up a new Continental regiment. In fact, Lee's Legion Perry figures are on my Historicon shopping list. There are also so many Hessian and British (and Loyalist!) units I have not done.

But, I think that Napoleonics players with 48-figure battalions would probably win the cup. They also need to keep adding new regiments, but theirs are bigger.

I would also think that ACW troop types are so generic, that new units would not be needed. I am, of course, wrong in thinkng that.

So, what genre requires the most figures in a collection, and not necessarily to play a game?
