Thanks Fred.

I painted up my Commissar Hellhound to see how the scheme worked on the tanks and turret. Because I didn't have room for a hatch I painted the back of the turret black and red to help differentiate it from the others. I'm hoping to finish the other five and three Stormswords for EpiComp at the end of the year.

Last update for 2020, I finished up the Hellhounds and Stormlords this weekend for EpiComp, so I think I'll head back and try to clear some of my various tangeants for the year off of my painting desk. Then I'll start some more!

Every part of the project looks great!  Good job on the commissars too, very inspiring.
If my wife asks, I only spent half as much as I wanted to...

Re: Evil Dave's Epic Imperial Guard - Marauder Bombers

Thanks Kelly. Where is your avatar from? It's so familiar.

I can't remember for how long these Marauder Bombers have been sitting on my desk. They were originally slated to be part of the Knight army, but when I rebased those Thunderbolts to pull double duty with the Minervans these came a long for the ride. I've been meaning to finish converting and painting them so this was what I worked on these past two weeks as part of the great desk clean off.



To make them WYSIWYG I added a tail-chaser gun that matched the dorsel gun using a round-ended pin. The lascannons were chopped off of some SM.TL guardsmen and glued to the wings. Nothing fancy on the paint job, just matching what I did seven (!) years ago for the Knight's Thunderbolts.

I would not have known the pin was not original if you hadn't pointed it out, good job on tying those conversions together!

That would be Frog, from Hey Duggee... its one of the few shows that my preschoolers and I both enjoy.

Re: Evil Dave's Epic Imperial Guard - Leman Russ and Demolishers

I started on some Leman Russ and Demolishers for my Epic Armored company last week to bring some new formations to NEAT (or local Epic tournament). At this point the Demolishers just need the highlights on the black, and the Russes need all their highlights. Hoping to finish them up in the next week or two and see about some 15mm Polybian Romans.

Heh, ok, I'll see if I can finish the Russes and Demolishers this week then put the band back together for a group shot.

I finished up the flock on the Russes and Demolishers today, well ahead of schedule. I've got a backlog of stuff to varnish, so I think I'll be setting that up this weekend then snap some updated army pics as requested.







I hope to finish up some conversions on a small 15mm Polybian Roman army I picked up in the coming weeks, and then get some paint on them.

Re: Evil Dave's Epic Imperial Guard - 5k+ Army Shot
« Reply #71 on: June 14, 2022, 04:10:16 AM »
I've been painting my Turan Armored Company, on and off, for just just over two years now. With the exception of the Thunderbolts everything in the pictures below was finished in that time, some 5,000+ points. I've still got plenty left: 67 armored vehicles, 3 super-heavies, 40 Chimera and all the infantry I can pack into them. The plan is to keep plugging away until enough complaints have been filed and I move on to another Epic army. In the meantime, on to some 15mm Romans. I'll come back to these later in the year to round out my entries for EpiComp.

Re: Evil Dave's Epic Imperial Guard - Objectives
« Reply #73 on: June 23, 2022, 02:59:35 AM »
Thanks batu.

I haven't gotten around to converting up some actual objectives for my Armored Company, likely because I've just been using these black primed ones from Epic 40k. Given that I've been using like this for two years I figured it was about time I painted them, so I took a few hours last night and painted them up.

Re: Evil Dave's Epic Imperial Guard - More Tanks!

I finished up some more Epic armor conversions recently, notably Thunderers which have 18 pieces of plasticard on them.
