After considering endlessly where I ought to post this, since it applies cross-genre and to some extend across scales, I thought I'd drop it here. Long term project of mine, which I'm referring to as Epic 30k or "Truly Epic Epic" - a 3mm scale Space Marine army. I building two: Ultarmarines and Word Bearers, for campaigns set in the Horus Heresy.

Been a few weeks since I set to work at it but it's starting to re-enter my consciousness. The figs are 3d printed proxies from National Cheese Emporium and an admixture of Oddział Osmy's sci fi line.

Seen these on another forum great little models i must say.

Would have considered 3mm heresy myself if these had been available a few years back.

Really beautiful. I'll be borrowing the idea of different head colours for my own.

Amazing! Do you mind if I ask which printing material did you use?

I think 3mm is the best scale for larger battles/games[ 2 Bns +, Bde and above]. And lends itself to actual battles of modern maneuver mobile combined arms actions. I think GW[and who knows for sure WTF they are or were thinking ?!?], they went for 6mm to get more detail especially in forces like Orks , Chaos, etc. That may be why the new Epic AT is going to be 8mm. (?)

But bottom line as we all see here, 3mm is a very good choice for modern/futuristic warfare/games. But we have to remember for the longest time ... GW has repeatedly said in the past. They are primarily a mini company and gaming company 2d. And based on some of the rules they produced that seems clear.

Again ... let me say to 3mm SMs ... WOW x 10 :o :o :o :spin :spin

I printed them all in "Frosted Ultra Detail." THey still needed a going over with a toothpick to get all the support material off. I understand lye would have helped too, but I don't keep caustic chemicals in the house so I just ran with it.

The infantry is all Oddział Ósmy "Venator" powered armor.

And thanks for the necro on this - and thank YOU for the compliment, L4! I need to get around to my Word Bearers at some point.

Hi Mr. Average. Is there anything new on this fabulous 3mm army? Have you created an adversary perhaps? I'm thinking of going a similar route.
