Epic Distractions...

Just a quick update to show some limited progress on the Rogue Trader/Necromunda guys i've been working on, been away with work recently and going away on holiday for the next few weeks so can't see much happening blog-wise there.

I hate taking photos of my minis as it shows no mercy, and my painting/attention to detail is bad enough without the lens picking up the obvious things like the horrendous lack of mold-line cleaning up on the Ogre, they all look better in the flesh!

I think that's part of the attraction of 6mm/Epic for me, as it is a lot more forgiving as you aren't looking for extreme detail most of the time, just a representation of the unit.

Anyhoo - outwith these guys i've had a bit of a clear out and stuck some stuff on eBay, i've also picked up another SM2 boxed set to fill the gaps in the one i had from my childhood, my plan post-holiday is to at least finish off the Space Marine armies (so i know what excess stuff i can punt!)

It would also be good to get a wee game going, either of Necromunda or custom rules with our new space pirate rogues - got some scenery to build for this and some scenarios to come up with!

I've picked up some minis from the Reaper range and have an eye on some Hasslefree ones that the missus fancies for her gang so hopefully will have them up soon too!


  1. Hey Craig; just been reading through your blog and it's great. I'm glad to see someone else loving second edition Epic. I helped run a 40,000 point battle at this years BOYL at Foundry and it was great fun. Maybe we'll see you there next year.

    I've also been doing a lot if Epic posting on my blog recently which may be of interest! I'm particularly proud of my 6 strong Titan Battle Group!

    Keep up the good work!

  2. Thanks! much appreciated, I've been following your blog for a while and its been very inspirational for me. your Titan group looks superb - I've got a few sitting on my bench waiting to be done, just need to pick a scheme :)
