Hi all.

I'm Atcho, and after a 20 year hiatus, i've fallen back into epic in a big BIG way.
My good mate "Jimthewookie" has a thread up showing his foray into painting the Imperial Fists SM Legion, and his excellent showing has shamed me into following suit. (OK Jim - You win).
http://www.tacticalwargames.net/taccmd/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=29022

As none of us in our small group seem to be able to do things by steady, small and manageable amounts, before we had even dropped a die in an epic game I had already amassed 10000pt of Necron's and close to the same amount of Ad Mech Skitarii. Now im even brancing into the Xth legion so to say we were broken would be an understatement - but if your reading this I'd take a punt and say you probably have the very same affliction.

We've been following and been inspired by the work of some great Epic gamers and collectors in OZ after visiting the local Castle Assault Epic comp in Newcastle last year, or our numerous trips to Cancon, where we can be found drooling over everyone's armies at the epic tables or generally just standing in your way! Our goal now is to get of our arses and start gaming at the local club.

So... The Ad Mech.
The original idea was "Every one builds AMTL, so ill build the squishy bits of the AM - no one else is running that, and I like the colour Red - So I'll build it"... but this has since grown in to a sickness that results in "I don't need that figure - but its cool - So im buying it. Now how can I make it fit in my lists!" Also, Vaaish's thread was a source of great inspiration, as was the whole AM sub forum.

Most of the figures in my AM force have been coming from three main sources - Troublemaker, Steel Crown & Dark Realm.

And to finish off the opening salvo, a couple of Ordinatus. I love these figs - and this would explain why I have so many of them. For now, just the first two painted, but many more to come.

Going to run this blog like I game - Start out all big and showy, but then just pitter out into a whimper of insignificance until I slink off into the distance.....
didn't realize until after I'd taken the pic's that I'd picked the worst mecharius either, Just means ill have to post up some more!

And the most underrated APC in the Game... my Chimadons. An auto-include upgrade to a demi-century every time I run my Skitarii.

Really love this army. They look even more fantastic in real life.

I almost felt bad killing them with unpainted Red Corsairs on the weekend... almost!
