Epic Squiggoth

Epic Squiggoth

The Squiggoth first appeared in Epic and this version was from Epic 40000. Though Forge World have made two Squiggoths, they never came with turrets!

Amazing Flying Squiggoth

The following model Forgeworld Best of Show at GamesDay France 2004.

Have always been impressed with this model, it certainly required a lot of imagination and the paint job is excellent.

It is a nice concept, and the painting looks quite good.

For me the overall composition and basing of the model does let it down in my opinion. I am not sure if this is a Warhammer 40000 model or a Warhammer Fantasy Battle model, it’s not a clear concept. I like it, but I would like it even more if the overall concept had worked.

Having said all that it did get Gold!

Epic Orks

Back in 2004 at the UK GamesDay, Forge World were showing off some new Epic miniatures, an Ork Battlewagon and a Gargantuan Squiggoth.

At this point lots of new Epic Ork stuff was coming out from Forge World and we expected to see lots and lots…

Little did we know that five years later, it would be 40K Ork stuff that would see the light of day and (Ork aircraft excepted) we would see virtually no new Epic Ork vehicles.

Will Epic rise again? Probably not, which is a pity.
