Hiya, Nicklas (Partisan_Nick) from Norrköping, Sweden here. I restarted Epic about a year ago thanks to Mordroten and Uven_Lord here on TacCom. I will try to blog a bit about my modelling and painting progress and see if that helps me too keep my productivity and discipline up.

Well actually I have already more or less completed a 4000+ points Steel Legion army with a somewhat soviet red army theme. Which is actually kind of the ethos for the entire Imperial Guard in the setting.

Right now I am working on updating my IG to also function as a DKOK list. Just in time for the major list overhaul that is happening of course. But the lists need revising and the Gorgons + infantry needs toning down. But I’m hoping that most of the units will remain viable.

To take the Steel legion list to DKOK-usability I first needed to paint up some 36 additional stands of infantry which are now done. I now have 60 in total.

Image

The next step was the Gorgons. I use the models from Trouble Maker games. I really like them, and the casts where quite good and really solid hunks of metal. The one criticism is that they are a bit overly detailed (!). This is a good thing for sense of scale in general, the problem is that it´s very hard to find any space on the models for free-hand or unit markings. My subdued and “realistic” scheme therefore failed to really make them pop, but good enough…

Image

This was my solution for unit markings (only flat surface on the model!).

Here is the current PIP of a home built Deathstrike silo. I will add some details, markings, signs and 6 mm figures.

Awesome :)

I played my first game of Epic at GothCon during easter. Minigeddon-rules. It was better than expected and I had high hopes to begin with. Just joined this forum so I can lurk around for a while until I know my way around and have time and money to invest in an army of my own. That silo looks really nice :)

Of course Zaius! It's actually quite simple bits if you have 40K-stuff/40K-friends. The main piece is a standars Rhino rear hatch (upside down). The hatch is from a sisters of mercy Rhino but with some modification a standard Rhino hatch should work. The hatch doors"" radar and dish is also Rhino in origin. The radar dish is on a shortened "pillar" from cities of death. The missile top and antennas are IG in origin I think but unsure of the exact kit. The sides and the miniature door are just plastic card!

The Emperor is "merciful" !

That missile silo is amazing...

I wish the deathstrike had two variations, one a pinpoint TK weapon as it is now and the other similar to an orbital bombardment (tactical nuke) because that silo looks like its the last line of defence against the communists!

3BP MW using 5" template? :D

The_Unpronouncable: Indeed! But since the silo is invariably crewed by a (political) commissar I guess it would be more like the last line of defence againt the all-consuming capit... I mean Tyranids. ;-)

Next up is 6x trojans + 3x earth shakers and 3x Hydras/Heavy AA... The components are old Chimera chassis, Epic guns and some FoW left overs. The gun carriges för the Earth Shakers felt abit large at first but then I rembered that tis is 40K and a gun can never be to big...
