Epicly Epic!

I recently finished my Epic: Armageddon Blood Angels army - 10,000 points in all! I still have a little finishing work to complete, but I couldn’t resist getting started on the complimentary force…Abaddon’s Black Legion. I’ll detail my Blood Angels force as well as my ruined city table in future posts, but for now, here are a few work-in-progress photos of my Black Crusade.

Bloodletters en masse

The end goal will be to produce two opposing forces (roughly 10,000 points each) and construct a series of thematic scenarios that will tell the tale of an embattled Imperial city. My current progress looks something like this:
  • Blood Angels: 10,000 points - COMPLETED
  • Imperial Titan Legion/Navy - In progress (40%)
  • Black Legion: 10,000 points - In progress (5%)
  • Chaos Titan Legion - In progress (0%)
  • Chaos Navy - COMPLETED
  • Terrain/City - COMPLETED
  • Scenarios/Background - In progress
Completed Epic Table

Still a ton of work ahead of me - but I can honestly see the light at the end of the tunnel. One of the great things about Epic is how satisfying it is to paint entire units in a single sitting. At this pace - I just might complete this project before the next re-release of the game!

Oh - let me also add that I have recently purchased 7000 points of Imperial Guard, 5000 points of Space Wolves and roughly 2000 points of Tyranids...not to mention the 10,000+ points of Orks I have had for some time now...all need to be painted/re-painted...I most likely need serious, professional help...

What a great table! Truely the most epic, epic table I've seen!

Did you just add pictures of the table? I missed that before...

It's great to play on.

Didn't you have a desert-themed epic table as well?
