During the early part of the lockdown I started going through my boxes of ‘stuff’ and realised I had almost enough miniatures to do 2 full chapters of Space marines from scratch. Yes 2….
So anyway, here are some pics of the first finished units of the Sons of Castor (based on White dwarf 142 article on painting Blood Angels, for a real nostalgia feel) and Polydeuces Riders, a white scars based biker and the like chapter.
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.
