View Full Version : Your Epic Force

I was just wondering what armies people use in Epic?

My army of choice at the mo is a SiegeMasters army which I'm currently building up. So far I have 2 Infantry Comps, 1 Ragnorak Comp, 1 Siegfried Comp, 3 StormHammers and a Bombard plt. I've also just received some fortifications too.

My army isn't from Baran though, I've still gotta think of some fluff for my guys.

I did used to have an Ork army in the days of TitanLegions and a Ulthwé Eldar army in Epic 40K.

While I hardly play any more (and when I do it's NetEpic or 2nd ed Space Marine), I've got a Tzeentch chaos army and a Squat army.

StugMeister

The Epic Squat army was/is so cool! I love the Land Train and Collosus.

I've had an old Titan Legion era Eldar army for over ten years. It was my first wargame. I bought Epic40K but didn't like it. I did get the nice plastic ruins set out of it and even managed to score a second box set's worth from a friend. Still it stayed in storage for quite awhile.

Now I'm painting up my girlfriend's marine force. She likes the Blood Raven's for epic and I'm doing my best to give her a balanced army. This is her first war game until the Dark Angels are released for 40K next year. So in the mean time I'm trying to give them a very dynamic paint job to inspire her to play. Hopefully I will have a proper digital camera soon instead of a web cam so I can post some pics of my progress.

As far as me I would like to update my Eldar army. I intend on purchasing heavily from FW for everything they supply as I really don't like alot of the SG tanks. I have my own craftworld in 40K and will translate this over to epic.

I'm looking forward to the new Eldar flyers produced by FW. Hopefully I'll get a look at those soon.

Iv got a stupid amount of Space Marines (of which about 5k is painted) and im currently painting my Guard army-iv got about 6k's worth (more if i include Titans and flyers). (Luckily i bought the majority of it whilst still a staff member, so hasnt cost me more than £100 at most.)

Have been tempted by a Tau army but an entire forgeworld army is, personally, unjustifiable.

I started playing back in space marine/ titan legions time so of course I have a space marine force, maybe 5k, a good IG sellection, 9k. When they first came out I got into the Epic Nids so I have 7k of them, last year I got into Orks so now I have somewhere around 15k of orks including Gargants and about 3K of Imperial titans. I want to get a bunch of the Chaos stuff next, I been borrowing a friends chaos stuff if I want to play around with them.

30-09-2005, 14:37
I started out in the Adeptus Titanicus / Space Marine days (1st ed) and like The Ape I've got a stupid amount of Space Marine stuff. It comes to something daft like 11,625 points and that without Titans! :eek:

My Eldar army is 8525 points without Titans, 12,275 with ............ and growing! :D

Oh man, those picture make me wish I hadn't rushed out and bought the current metal ones. :(

Still, I have several thousand points each of Marines, Eldar and Squats. Most of the Eldar and Marine stuff is fairly old school with just a handful of new units.

Marines and Eldar. Fairly largish in both.

30-09-2005, 22:22
There are more pictures from FW here:

http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/fwsoon.htm

It has also been pointed out that the Eldar fliers are swing wings, and you can position them as you want. They are absolutely fantastic minis, and I cant wait to get hold of some! I think that I will need to consign my SG ones to EBay - although these FW ones are rumoured to be almost twice as large as the SG ones.

I have way too many points, mostly unpainted and unassembled, of pretty much all the forces past and present. Chaos are probably my smallest force right now.

*Takes deep breath*
I have several armies I've either got complete or are putting together/painting:

- Iron Hands Space Marines (3000 points)
- Imperial Guard (3000 points)
- Fire Storm Chapter Space Marines (2000, will eventually be expanded to 3000 points!)
- Orks (3000 points, plus a Mega Gargant! :D)
- Iron Warriors Chaos Marines (will be 3000 points when I've done the conversions to make Obliterators & a Bane Lord)
- Plus some Knights, an Imperator Titan (sweet! :cool: ) and Inquisition/Death Watch units for the experimental list I've been part of developing on the Specialist Games forum.

Currently, of that I've only got the Iron Hands completely fully painted for battle. I'll be getting the Guard finished for next year's Specialst Games tournament.

Could you explane why you think Tau epic is unjustifiable.

I am thinking of starting Tau and I wanna know if Tau is fun too play :)

and now I gona be ontopic:
I have 0 points Tau :chrome:

Brother Othorio
01-10-2005, 15:26
Could you explane why you think Tau epic is unjustifiable.

well i'm no telepath, but my guess would be either price:

Heroics & Ross Historical 6mm infantry
£1.50 for 50
Ground Zero Games Scifi 6mm infantry
£2.50 for 24
Alternative Armies Scifi 8mm infantry (tho labelled as 6mm)
£4 for 30
Forgeworld 6mm Tau
£12 for 25

or simply a doubt as to the durability of resin 6mm infantry ~ i dont know any company other than FW who do things that small in resin, the only wargames company i can think of that uses resin is Battlefront, and they only use it for vehicle bodies: gun barrels and infantry are made using metal as resin is just too brittle to stand up to gaming ~ and their minis are 3x the size of EPIC

Brushmonkey

I am sure they are great fun to play with. However, I cant justify spending that much on models, especially when there are many other things i would rather purchase (like a new surf board :cool: ).

Only reason i could afford my Guard army is because they were half-price

Oh, if you're interested, here's a pic of my Iron Hands force - currently my only finished, fully painted army, but it's a start! :D

I'll take some better, close up pics soon, which I'll put on my website. In the mean time, enjoy! ;)

StugMeister
01-10-2005, 18:29
Firestorm40K - nice! 'Course, if anyone else fancies posting their Epic Forces that'd be cool! I'll have to get a photo of my Siegemasters sorted.

BTW Firestorm40K, I see you have 12 Infantry stands in your Tactical Detachment? I'm getting a bit confused now as in the WD BatRep, they had 12 whereas on the SpecialistGames forum they reckon it should only be six? Someone please clarrify!

Mouldsta
01-10-2005, 18:50
A tactical squad is indeed 6 stands. That pic looks to me like 2 tac detachments, a land raider squad, a devies+ razorback detachment, a termie squad, a predator squad and a warlord.

I plan to start an Imperial Guard regiment, as soon as I can get the cash, but at the moment, I have about as much epic stuff as the local cat.

(That's none, by the way. Although I'm pretty sure that cats can't buy Epic stuff(How could they order it off the GW Website?), I'm not taking any chances.:p The amount of times I've said something like this and the next day... Oh, the irony. :rolleyes: :D )

Judging by my current financial conditions, it should be very soon(Read: Next year or two).

Well if anyone's interested, here's the Ork Warboss I've just finished painting and not yet based - it's not exactly my whole army (as it's one stand), but it's a start....

Just a couple of Tacs, a Dev and Termies, and four Dreadnoughts.

That wouldn't be so bad if they weren't made of paper and cardboard.

Here is my Ultramarine 3rd Company with supporting elements from the 1st (eventually add Termies), 6th, 7th, & 9th, and Strike Cruiser, 2 Thawks, & Orbital Lander. The 3rd Co is all painted. There are also two warhounds.

So here it is, 1125pts so far. Sorry about the big pic.

05-10-2005, 00:39
Nice start.

Once the Marines are done being painted I plan to build around 5k of Imperial Guard, a full regiment. 3 Mech Inf Co, 2 Tank Co, 1 Superheavy Tank Co, 1 Artillery Co, 1 Reg HQ Co, 1 Flak battery, 1 Sentiel Formation. The standard Inf will all be Stormtrooper minis, dont wanna use the long coats. Also going to build two flights of Imperial Navy craft - that is 4 Thunderbolts (FW) and 2 Marauders (FW). Last and 1/3 done a Titan Strike Team 2 Warhounds, 1 Reaver, 1 Warlord.

I was also thinking of building a detachment of Grey Knights.

StugMeister
19-12-2005, 14:01
I know this is kinda resurecting this thread from the dead, but i thought why start another one!?

Anyway, I've gotten one StormHammer done, another Infantry Company painted and I've started on some Bombards.

So, how's everyone else's Epic armies going?

The infantry are finished, I've started on the Chimeras for it (it's a Mechanised company) - I've painted 4 so far, just need to apply squad/company markings. Anyway, here we go:
3801
3802

Not played myself for ages. Got a Blood Angel and Chaos (Iron Warrior) army with Traitor IG. Bought a load of plastics for SM's/Nids/Chaos a few years back when support for Epic 40K ceased for a silly amount. Seeing the new Epic:A and FW Epic scale models I've been tempted a few times to return to it, even got two unmade FW Warhound's fr my fledgling titan forceand those Epic Tau and Grey Knights look mightily cool to my eyes. If I can get a few regular playing partners to brush off their Epic forces we might give it a go with the new rules.

:chrome:

StugMeister
20-12-2005, 11:46
Looks like your IG are coming along nicely there Firestorm40K!

I'm hoping to get my little bit of Siegers finished before the new year so that I can order a tonne more to paint! Dang these guys have a lot of Infantry - more cannon fodder.

I'm hoping to order some more bits from GW and also GHQ in the new year. Gonna get me some arty (Russian WWII guns).

20-12-2005, 21:37
I've got a huge ork army, and it can be used for an OGBM army as well. I've also got an eldar army and a tyranid army I'm slowly collecting and paiting. Had a huge Chaos army but I lent it to a friend so that he could play, and he pretty much claimed it as a gift. We haven't play since.

StugMeister
21-12-2005, 00:24
Well I've done some more work to my Siegemasters, painted the bases on my Infantry Comp and did some more work to my Bombards.

I'll have to get some pics posted up soon.

Once I've got the Bombards and an Infantry Company completed I can start on another TWO INf Comps, followed by TWO Arty Comps and an AAA platoon.

ObiWan
22-12-2005, 22:47
Well, I've got a silly amount of marines I got on eBay (I stopped counting at 18,000 with current rules, though mostly tac formations), about 8,000 Eldar points, and about 6,000 Tyranid points.

Calindor
23-12-2005, 07:13
I play with my orcs. Got so far about 2400p and need to boost it at leasts to 3000p. In my gameclub we don“t play at all with titans and instead only use basic troops like tanks, inf, canons etc.

Or a Beil-Tann eldar army. Certainly fits what you're after, and the learning curve on Eldar is far, far easier then marines, so long as you remember your special rules ;)

Great looking Siegemasters Stugmeister!

I've been painting up more Chimeras. Here's the 8 I've done so far (5 more after this to complete the Mechanised Infantry detachment!)

http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c274/firestorm40k/Chimeras_wip_2.jpg

Here's another pic with infantry - a detachment chosen from the Epic Guard tournament army list, with sniper support. Add further support from Ogryns and another Platoon (once the chimeras are painted), and this detachment is complete. It'll be a bit of a beast which will take quite a bit of fire power to destroy! :evilgrin:

Cheers Firestorm40k!

I like what you've done with your Chimeras. I've been thinking about basing my AFVs too. Maybe after I've gotten the whole army painting up methinks.

Incidentally, what did you use for the bases? I'm thinking of 1p and 2p coins for my Siegers.

The Ape
11-01-2006, 21:45
Those look like 2p coins to me. (Edit: may be worth applying some matt varnish to them, as they chip really easy otherwise).

Which is what i have used for my IG vehicles.

Not sure what to use for my shadowswords though. I used warmaster bases for my SM vehicles and they look great, but not found anything that works for the IG super heavies.

I'm gonna be having another 1125pt battle soon so I'll have to put some more pics of my Siegers up then.

Or do you just hope to obliterate your opponent without having to worry about that?

13-01-2006, 15:24
my epic force is a little on the large side.
it comprises of (in it's entirety)
command HQ
infantry company
2x demolisher sqn
2x ogryns
2x hellhound sqn
leman russ company
hydras
2x thunderbolt sqn,
stormtroopers in valkeries
vultures
2x superheavy tank squadron (3 each of baneblade/shadowsword)
3x basilisk company
1x manticore company

i usually set up the fighters in an overhead cap, pound my opponent with artillery, then use the stormtroopers to grab objectives.

When FW came out with Tau in Epic I bought up a small force to play locally. Here is the picture of them before I sold them off on ebay as most of my friends who played epic moved away.

On a side note I recently say them for sale on ebay with more stuff added....I almost bought them back.

13-01-2006, 23:45

Today my Ultramarine Army (5000 pt) took a horrible lost to Tyranids.

Problems:

Not knowing his list/him knowing mine
Not conducting surgical strikes properly
Not putting pressure on the objectives on his side of the table
Fighting his army and not for the objective

StugMeister
16-01-2006, 07:55
Sorry to hear that Orangesm. Good that you learnt from the defeat though and can see where you went wrong.

I've got a battle or three on Saturday versus Ultramarines, just 1125pts again though. I really need to get some more bits for my Siegemasters! Been trying desperately to get some plastic rod to build some proxy arty pieces.

StugMeister
18-01-2006, 20:09
Right, I've ordered a tonne of materials to scratch-build my arty companies, flak battery and support weapons with. I've basically got plastic rod, balsa dowel, aluminium rod and plastic sheet on the way.

I've got a couple of weeks off soon so I'll hopefully get some work done then and get some pics up!

Here is the army I used in the 5000 pt game. As a result of the game I am considering going with a much more strike style army of marines with two thawks and a landing craft for an airborne drop and an armored column already on the table along with some Titans.

Thoughts?

They look nice - got to love the forgeworld warhounds!

Personally im not a big fan of land raiders as they dont do enough for their points - i would take some terminators as they are less vulnerable if they teleport and can rip a big hole in your opponents army. I used two such squads to good effect in the GT last year.

If you teleport with them it means the first turn can be quite rough, but come the second turn (even better if you win priority) they can really knock your opponent off track.

Hiya folks

Just want to say hi.

I've been playing Epic:A since the beginning of playtesting and did have a 5000pt Crimson Fist force but eventually sold this on ebay. (wish I hadn't now - doh)

I've an Eldar Army (Iyanden) of about 5000pts painted with a tonne of wraithguard/wraithlords a few more aspects and a 2nd vampire left to paint.

Got about 4000pts of Orks )only a Grgant and 4 Fb's painted though)

My current project is my new Marine army, using a made up chapater; The Praetors Of Hydra. I have 3000pts painted and am currently expanding it to include more speeders, scouts, drop pods and 4 Warhound Titans. Almost finsihed my first 'hound. Will get a photo up at the weekend, plus more of my force. The first Titan is called Aeterno from the Legio Mortalis Titan Legion.

Anyhow I got a few bad photos of my force, but will endeavor to get better ones up asap.

Looking good Furry With Fleas! I dunno what you mean about bad photos, they look fine.

It'd be good to see some pics of your Orks and Eldar too.

Thanks Stug. Well the photo's are a little blurry and also only show bits of what I got done.

I've created a gallery on this site and uploaded half a dozen picks of my Eldar. I'll get a few more done at the weekend. Just got to wait for the admins here to vet for porn or something :)

Welcome to the fold, FWF, always great to have another Epic player around! :)

Really liking your Marines, excellent paint job on them. The quality of the pics is great, I'm really struggling to get some good pics of my Epic minis, so take heart!

Looking forward to seeing more of your army.

Well I had a couple of battles today with my Siegemasters at 1125points versus my bro's Ultramarines, I'll hopefully post a link soon so that you can see how I got on.

Hey folks, my first post in a long long time. Thought I would chime in as I recently started playing E:A again after a long hiatus. I sold my marines about 8 months ago as I was in desperate need of cash, but recently bought an Eldar army off a buddy of mine. I'm still piecing it back together, but its about 7300 pts worth, mostly infantry. No titans at all yet, though I will be getting a Phantom soon, plus some more Engines of Vaul. I thought I would submit a picture on here though, to see if folks could identify some models that were included. Best I could figure (going left to right) is that these are a Falcon, Tempest (Scorpion), Wave Serpent, and Warp Hunter (Cobra). Any ideas?

FWF, those Eldar minis are superbly painted! Can't wait to see more of your army.

Rover, I can confirm that the first on the left IS a Falcon, and the third from left IS a Wave Serpent. I'll have to check one of my old rule books to find out what the other ones are, though!

2 & 4 are exactly what you thought Rover.

Thanks for the assistance guys. I'm going to be trying out my first 5000 pt Eldar list Wed. evening in practice for a tournie being held at the Chicago Battle Bunker April 1st and 2nd, then I will begin painting like mad. I really need to replace the Warp Hunter models though, they're horridly ugly. I might cut the long guns off the Falcons and use them as Wave Serpents too, then just buy some new Falcons down the road. I got an official pts total of what I got in the lot, 8225 pts. Not bad for a hundred and fifty bucks.

Yes, you have it correct:

- Falcon (old style)
- Tempest (original Scorpion)
- Wave Serpent (flying iron version)
- Warp Hunter (lead to the Cobra)

I have been playing epic now for over 10 years and have amassed a huge chaos army. I think its around 25,000 pts but thats in 2nd edition pts as the later versions were rubbish.

On top of that lot I have 3 chaos imperators (another 6.5k approx) and 21 Warlords (thank you 1st ed adeptus titanicus boxsets).

Kind of silly really but like all my other chaos armies way to big to be able to ever field.
