After seeing your figures I just realized something odd – all my historical 6mm stuff (Cold War, WW2) is all based, including the armour. Yet my Epic isn’t. Basing your armour and using movement trays is a great idea! And not only do the Contrast paints look great, but I bet it was quite fast to paint.
The best game GW ever produced in my opinion.
Which version? I personally thought Epic:40K seemed really good when it appeared, but as we played it more, it seemed too bland for our tastes. I think the last version, Epic:A is the best, especially when adding the NetEpic:A supplements and lists, as they’ve been playtested, unlike some of the final official GW lists.
