Playing EPIC in 28mm.

Right Marker !

So it was a bit dismal and Mrs Z had gone wedding shoe shopping with her bestie.  I built an Amera Plastic Buildings intact factory (following the instructions) and then came indoors as it was grim - I spoke to Jeff at PVP and he swore blind that it was dry in Wales.  humm....

Anyway, what to do, what to do.  I could de-louse myself or bathe the hounds.  I could watch GoT on the big telly.  But I could also see how many iggies I could put on the dinning table.  No contest.


Best Group Shot


DKK 262 Line Regt (a half company thereof)


Necromundians (Necromunda 1st 'Deaths Head' Regt - 17 Korps Sy Detail) manning the HW.  Vostroyans from 11Bn, 158th Firstborn, also manning HW.  Cadians from 144th LRR Regt.


Stormtroopers from D-77


902 Div HQ elements in front of 17 Korps Staff Officers.

Anyway - laying them out like this is fine, but due to the constraints of space, they are all too close together to illustrate their dependancies and Chain of Command.  Plus of course, a lot of these fellows don't actually have to walk anywhere.  And there really is no room for any vehicles once the iggies are out on the table. I might try for bigger, better (a better illustration of their Org and Det) and easier to understand in the summer.

And of course, the DKK 19th Armoured Regt boys didn't feature at all.

  1. Nothing stirs the heart strings more than seeing a table full of Guard!

    Lovely stuff - though the stand outs are the Vostroyans (lovely sculpts).

    Is that a Star Wars Storm Trooper squad lurking in the middle of the top photo behind the Commissars?

    Also - get a better shot of your Penal Legion - those jump suits look great in the big group shot!

  4. Impressive array. Just how many painted minis do you own???

    Still though, I do love me some Guard on parade, especially a collection this large.

    1. I've just considered your question and realised that I could try adding it all up, but off the bat, I have no idea. Is that bad ?

  8. Cheers gents. Like I say, a more illustrative illustration to give reasonable iteration to these illustrious luminaries is required. (say it our loud, go on, do it !) I'll bear it in mind.
