Well, after many days of toil, I finally finished my first commission. As many of you know, I don’t really accept commissions. For many reasons, the first and most important is that it takes away from my own time painting, and the second is that because there is such a low barrier to entry into doing ‘commissions’ the fees the market has come to expect is well and truly below my opportunity cost. Both personally and professionally. However on this particular occasion both of these criteria were met and exceeded.
I’ve always had a fondness for Epic scale armies. However ever since Games Workshop abandoned the system some 10 years ago (has it been that long!?!) the support for the models and rules has not been there. While Games Workshop and Forge World have come ahead leaps and bounds (especially Forge World) in terms of model design, sadly the old epic range hasn’t kept up. Until now.
All I can say now is that this army has really re-kindled my interest in this scale of modelling and wargaming. Specifically 30k era gaming. I’m really excited to get my hands on some 30k models in this scale and recount the battles on Istvaan III and then Istvaan V. Epic in more ways than one.
As I mentioned in my previous post, the owner of this army wishes to remain anonymous, however if you’d like to be put in contact with him, contact me via my Facebook page. I’ll forward you his details and maybe he’ll share with you where he sources this magnificent models.
Speaking of, BEHOLD!

Well thats it for now folks. Its been a really privilege to paint his army. Thoroughly enjoyed it form start to finish. The standard of these models is exceptional and will stand up to the most rigorous scrutiny.
I’ll be returning to uni on 02 March. Between now and then I’m aiming to do a little bit more painting. With any luck there’ll be one or two more posts in me before then.
Thanks for dropping in.
Questions and comments welcome.
See you next time,
