First Epic ArmyChallenge

 

Army Pitches

 

 
First up the contestants made a list of 4000 points using the NetEpic Gold rules. 
 
Dr. The Viking (me) chose the Orks and quickly amassed the following force:
 
Waaagh Ghazghkull
I went for a bit of everything and then some… basing it roughly on the Ghazghkull army from the Battle for Golgotha Prime.
 
More information: Dr. The Viking’s Orks
 
Daniel went with the Squat of Golgotha Prime to fit my Orks. Very cool! 
 
Denial 666’s Squat’s of Golgotha Prime

 

 
A few units were missing but Daniel quickly found them on the net. Read more here:Denial 666’s Squats
 
Uncle Jonas decided to refurbish and expand his age old Space Marine army. The army is based on the Blood Angels legion.

Floyd Lawton has also chosen to do the Marines!

Impressively Floyd has chosen to do 2! armies so that he may game with his son. Read it all here: 1stlegion Chronicles
 
 
Lastly TF Riley also went with an Ork waaaaaagh! 
 
 
 
 
Thomas is a bit of an old rat in Epic and has multiple armies in store.

April – The first dabbles in paint!

 
Having arranged all this on the background of falling back in love with Epic, I had a bit of a head start and actually managed to finish two clans for april! I knocked out 1150 pts this way:
 

Uncle Jonas was right on my heels though and finished quite a bit too in the form of a Blood Angels Tactical company worth 750 pts:

 
 
I think we’re off to a really good start and I can’t wait to see what the month of May will bring to the challenge. 
 
 

 

 

May

The month of May came and passed. A nice run for myself.

I managed to finish both a Kult of Speed, a Mekboy Gargant, some stompas and a few shokk attacks.

Jonas finished a really nice Land Raider Squadron:

Over at 1stlegion chronicles Floyd Lawton has been busy too. A vindicator squadron has been painted! Look at all those insignia!

So this month a miracle 3 of the 5 participants managed to finish something! It would have been 4 if I hadn’t botched my own stuff… I wanted to slow my pace a bit, but seem to accidentally have stalled completely between Åcon, webpage and real life. However, since it is mainly a question of photography, I will be up and running soon.

So let’s start out with Jonas. He seems to have gone all tankhead this month and has finished 7 tanks, including a medic rhino! Very nice Jonas. I think he may he veered a bit of the schedule with some of it, but after all it is all about painting, right?

Floyd Lawton has been even more busy and has finished a tactical company as well as a land raider squadron. I highly recommend you go look at his blogs, as the small details he has managed to get in on the vehicles are simply amazing, and displayed in full on the blog.

Lastly TF Riley is joining us for the first time. He has finished a lot of Ork vehicles in classy classic red livery! It warms my Ork heart to see such splendour with a Skullhamma, a Gibligrinda, Bowelburnas and even Gobsmashas! Way to go TF Riley!

TF keeps a blog here where you can find all the nitty gritty deatils: https://chainflailandlead.blogspot.com/2020/06/first-blood-evil-sunz-battlewagons-and.html
