Was looking at using the DW balloons myself for my squats and you have definitely convinced me that is the way to go.
Was also looking at which tanks to use as the basis for various squat superheavies, but after seeing what is in the pipeline from Onslaught, going to wait for their big beastie to hit the store.

Rastamann, I will certanly be on that big game and will probably bring some more people along. Managed to convert another player to Epic a few days ago. He's starting a Salamanders army right now.



Indeed I am, my very good friend Settra, and was I surprised to find such honorable mention to my humble person in this virtual place of convivence.

And now, since I've announced (and been announced of) my presence and existence before this very respectful court, it would be extremely inappropriate -as for the code of good manners- not to show a prélèvement of my own personal work, which as been slightly referred to.

I sincerely hope that these first efforts I've made on the art of painting "ridiculously minuscule subatomic plastic creatures" can benefit of your experienced advices. I would be very fond of reading some.

I must excuse my inexperience and beginners enthusiasm. I had never painted anything before, unless you consider some walls of my beloved residencial château or a very little modelling in my early years of adolescence.

To all of you good Sirs, my very very first Tactical Salamanders:

Good! Very good. Now how about a project log dedicated to your fledgling army?

Very kind of you, Sirs.

I'm still tapping my way through this marvellous universe of Epic but with a great deal of inexperience.
Settra is helping me out with some good advice and support, but still I have much to learn about. Currently I'm building up a basic army with some tactical units, rhinos, and some land raiders which I'm intending to convert to Salamanders Helios.
I will sure present a more solid project log in a near future.

:)

Now that I am almost over with this TOEG (minus a tunneler and half a cyclops) i managed to enlist the help of a friend much better than me at this macro photo thingie. So I just cleared up the crappy photos to give you much better ones of my squats.

My mole mortar formation. Yeah, I know the mortars are supposed to fire underground but that just looks daft to me so...
The small tracked vehicles are supposed to carry ammo/cargo. They are small british tankettes from dystopian wars.

This army is useless against my Salamanders, and you know why? Because my Land Raider can be used with dices ....or as a missile weapon.

:gah


Settra has done a wonderful job, but since he's my friend and Epic mentor, I'm suspicious. ;)

But they still die horribly...
