Great job on the track guards!  I spent too long trying to count all 18 parts; will the rightmost in the back row be getting an officer?
If my wife asks, I only spent half as much as I wanted to...

Thanks Kelly. Yes, I made plug-ins to swap around with magnets.

I finished up the Thunderers tonight after working on them for the past couple of weeks. They already made their game debut where they refused to activate for two turns.



I started on the Conquerors tonight too. I'm still hoping to finish these and the Executioners for EpiComp.

Great stuff Dave! Those thunderers are near enough entirely new work at this point!

Thanks YPU.

The Conquerors are finished, short of a top coat and some flocking. I might try to finish up some Executioners or Vultures for EpiComp, not sure yet. Either that or head back to the Romans or something completely different, we'll see where the paint goes.

Nothing new here, just some shots for EpiComp and a look back at 2022 Epic-wise. Not a whole lot of progress but I painted a fair bit of 15mm Americans and Romans last year. Not sure if I'll return to these guys this year. I've still got plenty Imperial Guard left to paint but I may move on to another Epic army for NEAT. We'll see, maybe I'll change my mind and paint some infantry for Steal Legion.

A fantastic-looking little force, and it's great to see all the minis gathered together. Well done!  :)

Not IG but Epic anyway.

It's the kiddo's first birthday tomorrow. One *might* be a bit too young for Epic but we're putting together a time capsule for him that he'll open on his eleventh birthday. That seems just about right to start playing, given my experience, so we'll see how he likes this Land Raider then.



Red's a fairly common chapter scheme, so I left iconography off it for now. I was going to do Genesis Chapter but this way he'll have a few more choices.

Very nicely done, and a very cool time capsule present idea! Your painting on the tiny view port lenses is impressive - no way could I do that!

Good to see the IG on parade - I’d missed them at the start of the year.

The time capsule idea is very cool - and I hope you are able to maintain it over the future years - 11 sounds a good age to start to think about gaming, as opposed to toy soldiers!
