Fantastic thread, I haven't done anything Epic in at least 15 years but seeing these makes me want to start up again :)

Funnily enough I've been painting up epic stuff recently.
Nice stuff and I love those add on bits, never knew they existed. I've got loads of Rhinos I could convert

Thanks for all the positive comments guys, gave me a nice boost of enthusiasme for the project! 8)

@zemjw: we use the Epic Armageddon Compendium v2.0, that you can download for free here

@rob_alderman/Commander Vyper/steders: the bits are from Epic Army Minis. He sells spikey bits and add on bits for Chaos rhino variants as well.

Yesterday evening after I put my son to bed I had some more time for this project. I had planned on finishing the Ork vehicles that I'm working on, but since we're going to fight another battle this evening and my opponent wishing to field a formation of assault marines I built four bases of these and added a fifth with a chaplain (he's using my Space Marines). I only have plastic infantry, so I needed to convert the chaplain with jump pack, quite a fiddly task, but fun to do and with a nice result if I may say so. Here he is:



I made one before as an addition to my bikers. It's a regular biker with the face and left arm of the chaplain. Behind them is a stand of terminators with a librarian and a medic (wouldn't want the geneseed to get spilled if one of the venerated brothers falls, would we)


Hopefully I'll have time this weekend to finish the Ork vehicles. I'll keep you posted :)

Fan-frickin-tastic! I'm trying to downsize my mini heap, but my first decision was that the epic stuff wasn't going anywhere. Topics like this remind me why.

And keep those devastators in contact with their rhinos - save bonus. :D

Finally got round to taking some pictures of the objectives I finished for the Space Marines.

All three together


A commander lost in the woods, with only his aide by his side


Landraider riddled by enemy shells and with one of it's tracks blown apart, but the machinespirit is still functional and in need of rescuing offcourse




Desperate last stand conducted by the remaining members of a combat squad with their backs towards each other (although my opponent keeps claiming they're just partying  ;))


Furthermore I stripped all of my Imperial flyers and will be assembling them soon. As for the Orks I built four Deathkoptas to accompany the stormboyz into battle. And I'm working on an idea for these finest of Orks. To let them jump into combat I cut them from their bases and stuck most of them unto metal rods (for this I also needed to reposition their left foot, because it is pointed to the left and in midair that sure looks silly), some are still standing on the ruines for which they launch their assault only secondes away to follow their comrades in arms. Here's a tester. I used cotton wool for the smoke but I'm not sure how this will react to a spray of undercoat, so I'll need to test this first.



Finally I'm considering what an Ork would fight for, objective wise. A statue of Gork, a Waaagh! banner, an awesome big-ass gun... Need to think some more on this though.

Fantastic stuff Raz!  There is something about being able to organize 6mm figures into little vignettes that has an appeal that I have yet to find in any other part of the hobby.  There is nothing quite like an Epic scale scenario marker and you have nailed it with these  :-*


And I'm working on an idea for these finest of Orks. To let them jump into combat I cut them from their bases and stuck most of them unto metal rods (for this I also needed to reposition their left foot, because it is pointed to the left and in midair that sure looks silly), some are still standing on the ruines for which they launch their assault only secondes away to follow their comrades in arms. Here's a tester. I used cotton wool for the smoke but I'm not sure how this will react to a spray of undercoat, so I'll need to test this first.

To achieve a similar effect I drilled into the Stormboy jump packs back in 1997, added thin paper clip wire and flocked it with a few different grades of flock, getting thicker towards the bottom.  They look sort of daft shooting straight up in the air, but having just dug them out of storage to take this snap, I still like them seventeen years later :)

Some lovely stuff on this thread, love the objective markers
For orks what about a broken down speed freak with 'the hood up' and a mek boy trying to fix it?
