Side project

Despite organizing my 15mm projects and STILL being behind my paint schedule... The planets aligned and I found an old box of my dear old Epic Orks. It dredged up dormant lust for 6mm minis. I took some photos. This happened.




This is a side project, so don't worry, 15mm is still my main focus. Which reminds me, I must start those Copplestone barbarians. Maybe watching the new Conan movie will inspire me.

  1. That's really funny. I too am digging out my unpainted Epic for my next project after I finish my current batch of Post Apoc terrain for the upcoming convention.

    Always loved Epic, and Space Marine was my entry into GW.

  2. Wow, they're so tiny and cute! Epic is 6mm scale right? I'm amazed these have any legible detail at all, to say nothing of your nice paint job :O

  3. Epic is 6mm. GW's old range really does have some amazing detail, especially as most of the infantry are plastic! (all mine are). I just placed an order for dome Dark Realm 6mm sci fi minis.. They are pretty amazing.

    We never got into Warmaster properly because the GW 10mm strips were "too small to paint like a 15mm, too big to paint like a 6mm" and basically gave us all headaches. 6mm fantasy battle would have been amazing!

  4. With the Future war Commander rules, you can even pitch those lovely painted Orks against dark realm armies!

  6. Looks very nice!

    I have a mess of epic orks that I keep telling myself someday I'll paint.

  7. If warmaster gave you headaches, you should try painting the Demonworld fantasy stuff. It's just 28mm detail at 15mm scale. Beautiful stuff, but man that's a lot of detail.

  8. Those look great. I'm amazed you were able to get that checker pattern on the banner. Great job.

    10mm can be fun! It's just a little more... abstract than 15mm. I've admittedly only done one set of 10mm (from Copplestone), but they were a blast to do and turned out looking okay. Mind you I spent a fair bit of time on these: not so good for army painting...

    /off to check out Nano Solo
