World Eaters Mastodon & Thunderhawk Transporter – Epic Scale

Posted: April 23, 2017 in Epic Armageddon, World Eaters

Good evening everyone,

Just a very quick post tonight.  I wanted to show you all some of my recent additions to my epic scale World Eaters.  The first cab off the rank is the Mastodon.  This model in 40k scale is truly gargantuan.  While I understand it is not a very practical model in gaming terms (it seems over priced?) it is a real show stopper in terms of just cock and balls on the table.  My days of painting 40k scale World Eaters are pretty much over, however I quite enjoy adding new units to my epic scale World Eaters.  So, when I found some epic scale Mastodon’s for sale about two months ago, I just knew I had to get three.  I have no idea why I wanted three, I just seemed like a good idea at the time.


Now, I dropped the ball when I was photographing these minis for this post.  Photographing white minis is difficult…  You’ll just have to bear with me.

So the rules for using Astartes in epic scale can be found here.  I have to admit, the rules for the Mastodon are a little lacklustre.  This is mostly just due to not having enough play testing I suspect.  I did a post on the EpicAU forum discussion possible revisions to the rules.  If you care to contribute, please go and have a look here.

Here is the Mastodon next to a few other minis so you can get an impression of its scale.

As you can see, its been faithfully reproduced.

Next up are three Thunderhawk transporters.  I really just like the idea of these things (much like the Mastodon).  I’ve not yet used them, but to though of being able to drop six rhinos anywhere on the board is very appealing.

So much awesome.

Next up are just some random pics of stuff I’ve completed recently.  I’m a little embarrased to put them up because the quality is so poor, however I don’t have enough time at the moment to re-take them.

Love these things in epic scale.

    There is one issue with Horus Heresy 30k epic . Where did you guys get models . Only place i menaged to find models for 30k epic is shapeways and old stuff on ebay ( titans , marines , rhinos ) . Tried to contact couple of blogers similar to this but they dont respond , everyone says that they want epic to grow , but they keep source of models well keept secret ! They always say that miniatures are not commercially available , but there are a bunch of pics of those minis out there !

      Everyone wants Epic to grow, except GW. The source of the models is kept secret to prevent them being sued into oblivion once and for all. Likewise, the growth of the niche must be kept small enough to avoid attracting corporate attention, especially now with the re-release of Adeptus Titanicus.
