That takes me back; I remember getting my Epic starter for either a Birthday or Christmas. I really must sort through the poor old battered stuff at some point it suffered the love of a teenager who used it thoroughly and cared for it less than well.

Triple post but as nobody seems to care for the small 40k stuff i can only keep arousing interest
So i painted up some stompa's to trample over those grotz.....urm...i mean...those terminators. They ar all painted the same except for one, who will be used as a warboss' stompa. He's the one with the checkers on the shoulder.
Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment

I find the termies look okay, if you take into account they were sculpted at the time of the older terminators. Right now we all tkae multipose for granted, but there was a time you had one pose metal sculpts, and that was all you had.
Compare the termies to this guy, you'll be amazed how good they look resized in 6 mm

Cool, i'm currently looking into a guard mechanised detachment to accompany the marines. I have already obtained some trough trades ( chimera's , hellhounds, demolishers and basilisks) and am looking to get some stuff from forgeworld in the form of their shadowswords and hydra's. I also traded some thunderbolts and marauders thanks to emptyhat and foster I also bought about 10 stands worth of bikes and 6 speeders on ebay. It's for my main unit, a speedy 15-16 stand bike force with land speeder support.
Now the reasoning after this is that i will not use imperial titans. My space marine force is a white scar succesor chapter, and is thus by default a fast moving force. i cannot imagine titans keeping up with that. So i want some shadowswords for the big guns .
I also just love the forgeworld shadowswords. Sadly, as i can't get my guard or my dwarfs sold, the funds are lacking.

Hey all, i've finished the city yesterday.
Instead of a road i made two modules involving larger buildings, and a reason why the city is in ruins.
I made a big crater in the main building ( town hall if you like), and put some rusty metal in it (the projectile). I assume it comes from a large projectile with a small blast radius but a big enough shockwave to level the city. I'm gonna call it deathstrike city.
@ Cosmic: Thank!!! I'm thinking of painting the road between the buildings, where the wirhlwinds are in the last picture of the occupied city.
@ Pyrotechnics: It's actually not so hard though. they benefit from a simple paintjob in striking colours.
Last pic is of my new recruits fresh from ebay, marine bikes,speeders and guard bikes.
