W.I.P Warlord Titan 3 of 5

 In keeping with my focus on all things Epic, this is a W.I.P of my third Warlord. I have added a number of upgrades. mainly anti aircraft multi lasers and anti infantry multi-lasers


You can see from the picture below i have converted the quake cannon. I didn't like the look of it being a one shot weapon. So i used the drum magazine from a 40k imperial guard grenade launcher.


I will post pictures of this Warlord Titan with the Anti Air and Anti Infantry upgrades soon.  So how this idea came about was i had bought some weapon turrets from Shapeways, for my Battle Fleet Gothic Projects. I was unpacking them and looked over to my unfinished Titan and thought, i wonder if i put some turrets on my Warlord?


I am magnetizing all the weapons on all my titans, so i have the option of switching them over whenever i need them.

Repainting Epic bombards

So I think it is time to upgrade some parts of my Epic Imperial Guard army, as it was first painted in the early 90's. To start with I will be repainted my old bombards to match the rest of the colour of my Guard army.

 

As the new grey colour is not that exciting, I am going to be putting company markings on all my artillery units. Which I think will add a nice bit of extra colour.

I think I will also be painting the view ports, to add some more detail, but I have not decided what colour yet.

Capital imperialis

Look what i got! only the biggest metal model in the Epic range. I have wanted one of these bad boys for ages.
                                 
It was in need of a good overnight soaking in simple green. Then a good going over with an old toothbrush got most of the paint off as well it helped soften the glue. I have it all in pieces at the moment, waiting for the conversions I will do on the main weapon and side.

Epic scale Space Wolves Landraiders finished.

So i have finished my Epic scale Space Wolves Landraiders. I have to say, i am happy with the way they have turned out.


I converted the Lascannons on two of them, so they are straight with the hull. I really think they look a lot better than the original position. I drilled out the barrels as i think it looks more realistic than just painting them with on.


I added a long fang decal from the Epic space wolf set to the doors of each raider to add a bit more detail. I believe it finishes it off nicely. I painted optics onto the front view ports as well.

Epic scale Wolf Guard Terminators.



I have finally managed to finish up one of my many many many ongoing projects. I am really happy with the way they have turned out. I wanted to have as much detail as i could on them because well they are the best of the best.

The squad leader or battle leader i think it is called (not a expert) needed a close combat weapon but i was undecided about going with a sword or a battle axe. So i decided on neither! i went with a power maul because i think they are cool. It was made out of a 40k Space Marine combat knife handle cut down, the eagle shape really looks neat.

I cut a few left arms and repositioned them so as to give a bit of variety. The rest of the detail was  painted on, like the knee pads and storm bolters. The Crux Terminatus was hard to do as i wanted it to look good but not have to take too long to do all twenty. I will eventually do a post soon with the finished Wolf Guard Land raiders.

W.I.P Epic scale Wolf Guard Terminators







This is my first ever Epic scale Terminator unit, I know hard to believe eh. I don't know why i have never gotten round to building this unit before but there you have it. Better late than never.

So I wanted to show the assault cannons on the models so I got some 0.88 mm size plastic tubing and put it on. After looking at it for some time half finished on my project desk, i didn't like the look of the placement of the tubing. So I cut in off and repositioned lower so it looks more like the 28mm one. I think it looks a lot better.

More to come..........

W.I.P Space Wolves Landraiders.


You would think with me having so many ( 50+ ) of the old Epic Mk1 Landraiders I should have more painted up. The fact is i just never got round to it. I always had other units i wanted to finish first.

Well that is about to change, this first lot, will be done soon and then i have plans on starting a second unit of Mk1's. just after i finish the other two projects i have half done then. Lol that is so like me, start something then get bored and start another.
