Hello!

I am rather new to to epic, but I have been painting miniatures for quite some time.
I play Flames of War and I have growing German army.

I haven't yet played Epic, but I have alredy bought some stuff. Here I will be posting any stuff releated to Epic.
As I have said, I have started making my projects.
They are:
DKoK
Ork Afrika Korps
Adeptus Astares

I didnt plan to have SM army, but I found nice lot on ebay and I have bought it, so I can trade the stuff and get some usefull for me. Luckily (?) I ended up keeping the army, as I 1) realised doing 2 horde armies at a time isnt the best idea, and 2) I began to like them and I couldnt leave them.


DKoK project:
The main idea is to have playable 3000 points army with some optional stuff. For models I will use miniatures from different companies. Ultimately I want to have full Death Korps amry composed of Vanguard's infantry and Trolls command, but they are very pricey to me. Some of you might alredy know that I am a little freak when it comes to STAHLHELMS (if you dont know what is it, shame on you), so I would also like to have an original WW2 German army.
The main idea now is to buy some winter troops form Heroic & Ros and do 48 infantry stands and 12 cavalry so I can use them as huge DKoK companies. Then, once I save up the money I will do genuine DKoK army using Vanguard's Novan Winter troops. This means I will end up having 2 DKoK-sized IG infatry armies. I want to do H&R figures as Winter WWII Germans with a bit of 40k fluff (they will be usable as Valhallans) and Vanguard's Novans as standard DKoK in its usuall envirooment, dead, WWI-looking ground.
Then once I have both armies done (not going to happen soon) I can use Winter Germans as other IG list like Steel Legion.

Progress:
Participated in Trolls' Vaader campaign in order to get Gorgons (Vaaders) and some other IG vehicles. I will be able to spend 60€ which means I will get 4 Gorgons and some other Vehicles, such as Leman Russes


Ork Afrika Korps (Ork DAK, help me find cool name for it):
I have a lot of Ork infantry, including 26 stormboyz (rokkit boyz) stands, 18 grotz, 30 boyz, 12 nobz, 5 kommandoz and some lootas, bikers and boarboys.
For vehicles, I will convert Pendraken's 10mm WWII German into ork wagons. I would like my army to be based off DAK (Deutsches Afrika Korps) but still have orkish look. That is why I am mostly going to use WWII vehicles instead of GW ones.

Progress:
Started stripping some infantry (luckily all my infantry is unpainted, I bought some more stormboyz form other seller and some stands were painted, but that is not a big deal because they are stormboyz and they wont break easily and I can strip them pretty quickly. I also dont have much to strip only like 7 stands ;)

I also painted one test ork:
Image

It isnt DAK but I couldnt resist painting Feldgrau. I also dont know if I will paint his mouth like this.


Adeptus Astares (Ultramarines):
I chose ultramarines, juts cause they are blue, I like blue.

Progress:
I have a good starting force:
14 tacticals
2 Termies
4 Devastators
4 command stands
4 Metal Dreadnoughts
4 Rhinos
2 Land Raiders
2 Whirlwinds
some bikes

I am stripping the paint atm.




I will update any progress on these projects and post any painted stuff releated to Epic here. I hope you likr it.



Kuba

Hello!
My friend recently got interested in 3D modelling and 3D pritning. He made 3D model of Chimera and had it printed for me.

What do you guys think?

Print is suprisingly very nice. You can see lines but it is probably the best you can get with not expensive ABS.
Madel cost about 20PLN, approx £4 which is still more exoensive than Trolls, but I wanted to see how well the printer can hamdle it. It was printed in 6 paets: sodes with tracks, front hull, back hull, turret and turret barrel. My friend also had printed for me StuH in 1:200 scale and it also looks good. I can post pics if you want.
I will try to paint the Chimera asap, because I really want to see how it looks painted.

At the moment I am in the process of removing the grass, because basically I didnt like it -_-
I will go for dead yellow grass with smaller tufts. I think it will look a lot better than this green grass.


Also here is Lord General wip scuplt. I am not a professional sculptor, I do it for fun. He was done only sing my hobby knife.
I hope that you like him :)
