Epic Adventures 2002 (Part V)

I guess it is time for another last minute update....

This time I don't really have anything new for my list. I have been painting a lot of random stuff and not much Epic. But I did paint a bit Epic and I also still have some undocumented stuff.

Today I took pictures of my Land Raider Company. I also took some pics of old minis, to document how my old armies looked, before I eventually repaint. And last but not least I took some pics of my Warhound Titans.

As it turned out all the pictures where quite bad. But I worked a bit with it and in the end I chose to just post about the Warhounds.

Painted around 1992/93 - 2010 - 2020

Back in the days Warhounds came together two at a time. I managed to get four and paint three back then. In 2010 I stripped one of the old ones and repainted (as seen above) and now I painted the 4th one.

I have decided to keep the two from the 90s as they are. I kind of like them even though they are far from my current standard. (Even if you can't see it on my terrible pics).

New Hounds.

I am going to update the paintjob on the 2010 Warhound and do the base with sand and goblin green. I know they don't come in pairs anymore, but I still need at least two ready for battle.

Old Hounds.

The old Warhounds didn't follow any Titan Legion scheme at all. I painted one red and one yellow, the third one I later stripped had a squared red/yellow theme. My old Warlords was blue for no reason.

Now I want to do some Iron Skull type Titans, but they will be in the service of my Blood Angels so far.

I really wish I had two more Warhounds as I would like to paint some Legio Astraman. I am currently painting Astraman for new A.T. and it would be fun to try the paint scheme on the old models.

Rogue Trader Commodore Crew

Working a bit on this and that, so I played around with some of the finished employees of the Commodore Droid Store gang. These are mostly just workers, encounters and non combatants.


Droids are from Ainsty Castings Spy-Fi line and the operator is an old Acropolis Designs/Zap Miniatures model, now sold by The Baggage Train.

Have fun...

Epic Adventures 2020 (PART IV)

Oh boy, I guess time just blew me by... After getting a headstart last month I almost didn't manage to make a post for June....

But I did actually paint a lot and some of it has been for Epic. Somehow I came a bit off track and I painted a full Land Raider Comany, a Medic and begun some Titans too, all of which is not part of my list. I did manage to pull off a few models from the list too and so here they are.

Predator Detachment


Vindicator Detachment


Medic


I don't know if I will eventually alter the list according to what I actually paint or if I will paint the list and treat everything not on the list as extra.

I will try to take new pictures of my Tactical Company soon. Both because I whent over them a second time and changed a bit, but also because the first pics was really bad. Secondly I will take pictures of the complete Land Raider Company too, but I want to print banners first...

Epic Adventures 2020 (Part III)

Next phase: Tanks. Getting a headstart here in May I painted up a detachment of Landraiders to start off. At the same time I have once again decided to alter my paint scheme a bit.

Now I am inspired by this 1st edition scheme.

1st edition box art.

And searching the net I found Ben Hardwidge's awesome Blood Angels which gave me the drive to finish my Landraiders.

1st detachment done.

Bloood!

Side view.

I think these turned out great and I will deffinately boost them to a full company over time. Everyone loves Landraider companies anyway.
