The Adeptus Mechanicus was my last big unpainted army for EPIC, mostly because the list changed over the years which rendered many of the originally assembled models obsolete. But ultimately I overcame my own reservations, bought a few more models to fill in the list gaps, and finished the lot. The full army page can be found here. At this point, only the Titans and Knights are left to complete my EPIC collection. 70 models/bases to go but 2,400 models/bases are finished. Not bad!
A full page of EPIC Tyranids is now up here. They are painted in the same scheme as my Battlefleet Gothic Tyranid fleet. Only a couple of armies to go for a complete EPIC collection…
Hmm… another long break induced by my frustrated desire to finish that 40k Blood Angel army. But I did manage to sneak in some buildings for Epic. The pyramids are just foam on a hard wood base for stability. The adobe buildings are a nod to the old Titan Legion cardboard buildings but made out of wood (MDF) to inaugurate my new scroll saw (a couple of years ago when that saw was actually new – I only just got around to assembling, texturing and painting them).
Salamander Landing Craft
Wrapping up some leftover pieces on the painting table: A Salamander Landing Craft based on the Forge World Thunderhawk Transporter model.
Eldar Revenant Titans and end of ToEG
And another army is completed! Two Revenant Titans ready to fry some aliens (I guess the Eldar see humans as aliens, right?).
The complete Eldar page is also up with larger images of the models painted during the Tales of Epic Gamers on the Tactical Commands forum.
Eldar Avatar and Titans
After a longish break from painting, I finally wrapped up the remaining Eldar items for the Tale of Epic Gamers going on at the Tactical Commands forum.
The Avatar was redone from the previously failed “molten lava” attempt. He is still rising from lava but transitions from heated orange to bone white around the kneecap.
I magnetized the titans for flexibility. The heads can be swapped between Phantom and Warlock configuration. Both arms can be switched as well to field any combination of weaponry (I have at least two of each weapon type). I also adjusted the pose of one of the titans to make them less similar.
Failed Eldar Avatar wip
July wasn’t the greatest month for ToEG:
8 Warp Spiders
8 Shining Spears
Just 600 meager points. That only left the big guys: 2 big Titans, 2 Revenant Titans and the Avatar. The latter killed all my momentum for the month. I had originally sculpted the model to be rising out of a lava fissure so the idea was to paint it in a molten lava scheme. And so I did. And then didn’t like it. At all. The lava scheme clashed badly with the white/purple style of the rest of the army. So the top of the model went into a stripper bath, making it the first model in the now 11k points Eldar army not to come out right on first try. Let’s see how version 2 looks like.
Eldar Air Force
Zippy little flyers of all size and shapes.
Just one model, but this concludes all work on Eldar infantry. Yay!
The Eldar army page, with all images at larger size is also available now.
Dire Avengers & Warp Spiders
More Aspect Warriors: While neither shows the purple of the Craftworld, both have at least the same green accent colour to tie them in with the overall force.
