"So Whats Vash been up to ?" I hear you say. Well maybe you did not but Im going to tell you all anyway :D .

You might have noticed that my attention wanders so therefore I jump from WIP to WIP and they all move at about the pace a a glacier.
Sorry about that guys.

Scince my mate got back from abroad we have been discussing Epic and he has finally got me to start an army.

We play The older rules out of choice (I have been into why on anoter thread HERE.) That said most of the models are the same.


The army I have started is orks, mainly because I had scratch built a load of kult of speed buggies and trukks for 40k and though it would be a bit of a challange to do much the same in 6mm scale. ( Not to mention cheaper too.)

Heres a few pics of whats going on so far.

The Horde.



Scratchbuilt Badmoon Gibletgrinda Battlefortress.



Scratchbuilt Goff Skullhammer Battlefortress 1.




Scratchbuilt Goff Battlewagon 1.


Scratchbuilt Weirdboy Tower.


Scratch Built Ork Buildings


The Buildings are currently being sold on Ebay as they do not work in the old rules. (work fine in the current rules though, should have done my research :oops: See ebay seller Zoddite.)

I started off painting as I assembled them but soon realised that I would not get far like that. So the current plan is to assemle all then base paint them in the clan colour so I can use them ( Yes I know play before paint naughty Vash. :eek: ) Then go back through a third time and finish them all up to the standard of the Weirdboy Tower.

Thanks for looking and if you want to know more just ask.

:shock: I don't know anything about Epic but really loving those scratch built minis from a modelers point of view, really really nice work.

Looking forward to seeing more of them,

One question?: how did you get it all so nicely built up without the glue spreading out and running the model due to it drying in lumps?

Sounds like a glue nozzle issue you have.
Either blow really hard on any excess glue to spread it thinly for no lumps OR for real small stuff dip a match or Cocktail stick in the glue and use that to apply it for more control.

Ah, the old army cards. Memories... :)

Why are the buildings no good? They look fine to me. Is it just a case of the square bases not fitting?

Nice work on the vehicle conversions too. They look spot on.

Those are so damn cool I have to restrain myself from going Orky and restart my old cult of speed army. Love the looted vehicles and the shokk attack gun!

Great work Vash, absolutely great :D
