all in 15mm, I/52c - Thessalian Hoplites (Xyston ones) II/3 - Classic Indian (Elephants! ) III/52 - Normands (i like the Baueda ones!) IV/48 - Chinese Yuan (for the mix between Mongols and Chinese) IV/59 - Samourai (First very old army!)
argh already 5! my 6th will be my New Kingdom Egyptians (for the Chariots of course!)
(The current count is 108 fully up to DBA3 code, and still about 16 needing their top ups)
Not so easy Macbeth. While I congratulate you on a brilliant century - if your house were burning down and you could only save 5 - which ones would they be?
Truth be told, about 17 years ago when Canberra was threatened by serious bushfires and we were packing the car in case we had to evacuate I looked at the vast amount of lead and the huge number of books and decided that since I couldn't save them all and with all the rest of the activity couldn't spare the time to make a considered evaluation. I grabbed three books I hadn't read from the nearest bookcase in case I would be spending several nights in emergency accommodation and compartmentalised the problem. No doubt I would wept tears of blood if disaster did strike - but I was surprised about how coolly I made the decision at the time.
But should the situation arise where I could
Southern Sung Chinese - my new Khurusan set
Christian Nubian - another fave that has won me much silverware over the time
Papal Italian - I will never get anyone to convert that litter again so I need to preserve it
Konstantinian Byzantine - they were surprisingly powerful and I want to keep them
Early Libyan - the b list AND I get to take their Sea People Allies (1xHCh, 2x3Bd) because you just have to love this army.
Because it has my troops all over it. THAT makes it MINE!!!!

Which five would I choose? Almost certainly the wrong five (every time).
But, since you ask, my choices would be I/45 Neo-Assyrian, II/53 Ancient British, II/56 Early Imperial Roman and IV/60 Condotta, not for the armies themselves, but for the personal associations, and to complete my five, III/10b Rajput.
