    Fantastic! The missile tubes are right above the front door, though... seems like an odd choice if you over-analyze it, but my first thought when I saw the pictures was that the whole thing is just *too* cool.

    I recognize a few BFG bits... are the sides made from Leman Russ sponsons?

    Thanks! I realize that it's the missile plate from the objective and it does look kind of weird if you think of them as missiles (they have to be really short or kind of awkward to get through the door) but the more I played with putting it elsewhere, the more I came to the conclusion the plate made an excellent ventilation fan system and just fit perfectly up front.

    The sides are scratch built with the turrets coming from the old BFG space marine dropship.

    Gorgeous looking objective Vaaish, it's an absolutely fantastic design.

    Godly!

    Your painting and modelling are matched only by your photography. The backdrop, colour balance, and the fact that they're in montage reminded me a little bit of Hortwerth's stuff, but I guess that's just coincidence.

    Are there any more Guard infantry, or is that the lot? it's interesting that they're on square bases by the way; are those useful in the EpicA rules? i only ever dabbled in Epic40k so I wouldn't really know.

    I've got my eye on everything epic Guard on ebay, really keen to have another go and you've just encouraged me further.

    Thanks, but I don't think there will be any guard infantry coming any time soon. I have enough models left for about 2/3 of a company but they really need chimeras, hydras, and banebades before I get to that not to mention I'm running out of square bases. On bases, the EpicA rules only specify dimensions the bases need to be within so there is not problem using square vs rectangular or even round. I personally prefer the square bases because they are easier to balance on things than the rectangular ones and with a bit of GS you can make some nice adjustments to the model arrangement.

    In the near future I'm finishing up my BFG backlog and more commission marines. I may even finish up a 40k rhino or two.

    Nice! Lots of gold detailing and depth to the colors... I kind of dismissed it at first, until I spent a little time noticing all of the details.

    Thanks, Yeah, these BFG ships have tons of little greebles all over them that just overwhelms the eye most of the time and given the scale of the model vs the scale of the ships it's difficult to decide how much detail to put into it for stuff like widnows and other glowy bits.

    Excellent painting log Vaaish, very inspiring. I rather like your Epic IF's they look very nice.

    I like the conversion work on your two VGC's, nice fleet by the way as well. It looks very impressive.

    Thanks, I do like the IF's myself. It's a very fun army to paint although it too a bit of fiddling to get a scheme that works well for the scouts I'm painting right now.

    I'm glad you like the Vengeance, but there wasn't any conversion done to them really. The only real conversions are on the dauntless light cruisers, emperor, and retribution models.

    Quite the fleet! Very nice detailing, very consistent scheme for the fleet. I really like the Falchions! I think the Voss-pattern bows look better than the stock cruisers' bows, and I really like the freehand detailing that you did on the Akhet Djet.

    I shouldn't be that impressed, considering the teeny-tiny heiroglyphs you did on your Knights... but it's still very cool.

    I finished up the first detachment if Imperial Fist Scouts tonight after a bit of work to figure out a good color scheme for them.

    The attached images are high res shots of the models.

    Re: Vaaish's All things Epic (and the ocassional 40k/BFG)

    Time for another update, this time with some old dropships for epic. These were quite fun to paint and I might end up trying to acquire another at some point to give it a much more thorough paint and modeling job. Next up is another tactical detachment though I'll probably also finish up the arms for my two warlords as well in preparation of a 5.5k game next weekend.

    In other news, I'm seriously running out of models to paint up. For epic, outside of eldar which I'm not sure where I'm going to go, I have four e40k basilisks, and two old style land speeder detachments, plus a hellbore that's kind of my reward when I run out of everything else.

    For 40k I have three rhino chassis, 10 sternguard to convert, two dreads to convert, and a smattering of objectives.

    And BFG just has a blackstone fortress and 6 infidel raiders. Not a whole lot left.

    and the pics:


    And the second one:

    I guess old epic dropships aren't too exciting Today's update seems a little quick since the last, but the warlord has been painted and waiting arms for a few weeks. I gave a friend the laser blaster arm and a couple of volcano cannons to construct arms for while I was off on my honeymoon but wasn't able to complete them and was heading out so I finished up with this one. Only one beetleback left to finish up for the game saturday... if I can find the volcano cannons for it.

    I love them too. They would make some very nice troop ships in BFG
