Epic Imperial Guard Army
With an unexpected house move on the cards later this month, I've been trying to round off a few projects recently. This has been the impetus I've needed to get some painting done that's been sat on my desk for months - years, in one particularly embarrassing case. I shared an update a few weeks ago about my Epic Imperial Guard army, where I talked about how collecting in 6mm would allow me to have an army on a scale way beyond what my 40K budget would allow. And now, after some intensive PVA-and-sanding afternoons, I'm finished!
|My Palladian infantry. They're done in sandy colours and bases, as they will be used in a campaign set on a desert world.|
|The lascannons, done using FlaK 88 style anti-aircraft guns.|
|These 'heavy bolters' are in fact 6mm WW1 Maxim guns.|
|And these light artillery guns are 155mm Schneiders.|
|But these have to be my favourite models - Earthshaker guns!|
I've never actually played Epic, so a big part of this project was the collecting and modelling. It feels good to have a full Palladian centuria, regardless of what scale it happens to be.
A huge part of the modelling here was the bases - I just sprayed the models brown, put on a few spots of colour and washed them. But the careful layering of PVA and scattering sand took a total of about twenty hours.
Hope you like them! Anyone else an Epic player out there?
