Hey,

2014 has so far been a very bad year for hobbying (but a good year on the job, so I guess it all balances). I've played rather fewer games than I wanted, and the painting queue has just grown and grown.

I did, however, find time for a project I promised to undertake last December: An Epic Club Army for my gaming club. They're all Warhammer aficionados to a fault (the name of the club is "Emperors Pride", and for good reason), but they all tend to play in awkwardly large scales (28mm) with rather poor rulesets. So, thought I, if a suitable club army was readily available, it might be easier to sway some my fellows to play in the proper scale, with a tactically enticing set of rules.

Naturally, the club army had to be Codex Space Marines, and a paint scheme already existed, since there is a club army for 28mm scale:

Image

I wanted to make an army with as varied a collection of Epic Space Marines as possibly, staying as close to a standard Codex battlegroup as possible. So, off to the bits box and the pile of old 1st and 2nd edition Space Marine models I went:

Image

There's a few spare characters, and conversions using the spare weapons from 40K era hunters and whirlwinds, but otherwise most everything here was readily available.

Another club member (cheers Corran_dk!) chipped in a spare Thunderhawk, along with some Scouts and Terminators, and suddenly we were looking at a 3750 points army:

I never did get around to doing much in the way of work on progress; Since the whole army was sitting there, everything was assembly-line work (basecoat everything, drybrush everything, paint bolters on everything etc etc). Here's the few midway pictures that exist:

May 13., Basecoat, a few accents, trial ground paint on the aircraft:
Image

June 7.: Most of the details done, bases on objectives and one tactical detachment, stripes on the Warhound:

Close up of tacticals; Just need to color the base edges.

Great work on these, lovely clean painting with nice bright accent colours! Great to see the old plastic models in use and the basing on the thunderbolts is great!!

Thanks!

We had a sunny bright day this weekend, so I borrowed the good camera from the missus and went outside in the light for some closeups:

The mandatory Battle Company, the spine of every Codex marine force. I really think old Roboute was on to something :)

Finally, support from other branches of the Imperial armed forces:

Titan Legion Warhound Scout Titan Vexator Frateri, of Legio Crucius.

Imperial Navy Thunderbolts:

and some objectives, to round out the force:

The Blitz objective is the one with the flag at the edge of the base - then it's easy to measure distances from the banner pole.

Great work! Colors look very neat. A little jealous of your white as well!
