It’s been a while since my last proper post, but it doesn’t mean I haven’t been thinking about painting. I’ve been doing a little here and there, however its been sporadic and not as focused as I like it to be. This has been largely due to my studies. The good news is schools out for the year! The bad news is I won’t be able to much painting between now and new year. Got a bit on, including a trip to New York City and Washington DC over the Christmas period. Really looking forward to that. BTW, if any of my readers know some cool shops I should check out hobbywise, even plastic kits etc, please word me up. We’re staying just near time square and will travel for awesomeness!
As many of you know, I don’t do commissions. I tend to find the opportunity cost too great. It takes away from my own painting time too much. However I got a very interesting request recently that I couldn’t resist. To paint a Net Epic Renegade Guard army, with some Titans and Alpha Legion marines. I won’t go into the background of Net Epic, but suffice to say, Epic (Space Marine, Adeptus Titanicus, et al) used to be one of the raddest games that GW ever produced. It was in 6mm scale, and you could wage war on a scale that was commensurate with the 41st millennium. Then GW ballsed it up and decided to discontinue it. However, some passionate gamers picked up the system and improved it, developed more rules and army lists for it and published it for free on the internet. Nice.
Then of course, GW produced some expansions for it. The one I most fondly remember was ‘Renegades’ It had that totally insane World Eater on the front cover. It also had one of the first coherent explanations of the confrontation between Horus and The Emperor during the Horus Heresy. Truly amazing stuff.
And of course that now (in)famous picture that accompanied the story describing the Emperor teleporting onto Horus’s Battle Barge at the siege of Terra during the climax of the Horus Heresy.
Just sit back and take that amazing picture in. Truly from the ‘halcyon’ days of GW
Anyway, enough of a trip down memory lane. Suffice to say, when I was approached to paint this army, I was pretty keen. I’ve actually painted a few 30k World Eaters in 6mm scale and really enjoyed it. So to share with everyone this really interesting, revived gaming system and range of models, I’ve decided to document it for you all.
Well, thats it for now. It’s late and I’m tired. The owner of the army wishes to remain anonymous. If you want to know where there minis were source, send me a message via my Facebook page. I’m really excited about this army and can’t wait to start getting some paint on it. By the way, thanks to everyone who inquired about my armies and titans I had up for sale. They’ve all gone to a new home and are being well and truly enjoyed.
Until next time! Bye for now
