After many years a major childhood bucket list item will finally be checked and.. well it will be Epic! 😀
Back when Epic was re-released in the nineties (I think it was like that, correct me if I’m wrong) I played it just like I played any GW game that was not Fantasy. Meaning tried it a bit, liked it but didn’t want to use my scarce earnings on more than fantasy (to keep up with the arms race we had). I did have a very small Imperial Guard force and I liked the game rather well actually.
So instead of diving into it I scoured White Dwarf again and again dreaming of what could have been. Especially the Waaghs that often where on display. Come to think of it I actually think this is where I first truly fell for orks 🙂
But now it’s my turn! The army is bought from a person who quit the hobby years ago. We’ve agreed on the price and everything and I think we both should be quite happy with it.
The army is even better than I could hope as the state and being unpainted means I can just go straight in there and do the fun stuff (paint stripping is not fun).
It will be an extension of my Deathskullz so blue and white will be key colours here.
The larger pieces will be customized a bit more.
I’ll try to bring in a bit more contemporary look and tone down the goofiness (if that’s your thing cool, it’s just not mine 🙂 ).
In addition to this I have a few more stompas, battlewagons and some bommas actually.
All in all this will be great and I’m really looking forward to this! If I’m lucky maybe one or more of the guys will pick up Epic as well when they see my freaking awesome Waaagh. Here’s hoping at least 😉
This will be started on July – August I think. Getting quite cramped in my hobby schedule (plastic crack..) 🙂
