A FULL stronghold. Something really impressive at Epic scale - and certainly my best Epic project so far.

That looks cool and very usable. I don't play epic myself, but I suffer from shiny syndrom and I might get it in the future. Looks like a worthy set of terrain to game on. How long did it take you to make it all?

I'd say three month overall - but I worked on it in parallel with the painting of a Squat army. Getting the rough shapes in place took a week for major structure, details took another three weeks (cloing gaps, adding struts, etc.) It all depended from the piece; the landing platform gave me headaches, for example. But the main gates and the refinery were simple. Basing and painting was without problem, but lengthy. Once again, some pieces were far more complicated than others; the secondary entrance was the most complex part paint-wise.

The three month mark includes the interior details, which took 2-3 weeks alone. A lot of thought went in the design.

There are a couple of fan lists for squats that have had fairly extensive playtesting and should be balanced for the GT scenario.

Yes, yes, yes, you must all give Epic a go! It is a fantastic game, challenging to get to grips with, but far more rewarding than 40k is sometimes (says someone who has only ever managed to finish in the lower eschelons of the Tournaments I've ever taken part in :p )

And I've sung many praises for Kotrin's terrain - outstanding and very inspirational! :cool:

Squats are not dead! They are just having an extended lock-in and enjoying their finest ale while they wait for Leman Russ to come back with the pizza. :D

Thats just awesome! I gotta say, I really love the little industrial diorama inside that main gate. Great stuff!
