Hi guys,

Don’t post much, but I’m always drawn back to Epic, i’ve been using Future War Commander for years but now find myself wargaming solo on Vancouver Island and dreaming of the Halcyon days of 2nd Edition. So I was thinking of re=painting my epic specific stuff in more Canon like colours (you know, yellow Eldar, Ultramarines or blood Angels rather than the more realistic colours ive favoured. What do people think? Im not a great painter but some of my stuff is good for the table at least

Here are some *proper* tempests that im tempted to strip and repaint

Cheers

Graham

No way.

Figs are much better when they are not in the studio paint schemes.

You could try doing some edge highlights on the panelling and weaponry on one tank first. My guess is you'll like the scheme again once you put some recent work into it.

I guess gussying up what i already have is a better idea, dont know why i didnt think of that. I think a reorganisation might be called for first

Thanks guys

I really like your colour scheme. Agree with the above, gussy up what you have. You could also write a bit of a back story for your own craft world.
