These are some of my very old Epic miniatures from the 1990s.
This is one of the plastic Warlord Titans from Adeptus Titanicus. It has the Chaos head and red eyes, though in the main I used it as an Imperial Titan when playing games of Epic.
These are plastic Land Raiders and metal Dreadnoughts.
The scenery is from Snapdragon Studio.
Epic Space Marine Battleforce advanced in front of an Imperial Manufactorium.
These are in the main metal Epic models. The Land Raiders and Vindicators are metal models (from the Epic 40000 era) however the Rhinos are plastic.
The buildings are from Snapdragon Studio and work really well in this scene.
If you had a love for the Epic super heavy tanks from the Space Marine era (ie before Epic 40K) then you will love the new Fellblade Super Heavy Tank from Forge World.
Based upon the same STC data as the Baneblade and Deathhammer super-heavy tanks, which are a mainstay of the vast brigades of the Imperial Army, the Fellblade is a more advanced variant that first saw widespread service with the Legiones Astartes in the last decades of the Great Crusade.
It is most noted for its use of Mechanicum atomantic arc-reactor technology and a reinforced metaplas alloy chassis superior even to that of the Baneblade, alongside an advanced accelerator cannon as its primary armament. These systems are all fruits of Dark Age technologies rediscovered and restored to humanity shortly before the nightmare of the Great Heresy.
I do quite like this model and certainly reminds me of the early days of Warhammer 40K. It would certainly fit in with the other retro models that Forge World have produced.
Now wondering what else Forge World will show off before the big Games Day event on Sunday. Alas I can’t make the event this year, confused my dates and didn’t get a ticket in time. Maybe next year…
Oh, by the way, anyone know what the Deathhammer super heavy tank is?
