Whilst many hobbyists will be getting stuck into the Horus Heresy 2.0 releases, along with a mainline support from Games Workshop moving forwards, why wouldn’t I take part in what’s been a dream of mine for so long? To finally collect, paint and build HH armies of my choice without having to deal with resin kits and slightly lowered prices for plastic updated kits?
Simply put, 28mm ain’t gonna work for me. The Horus Heresy is a huge investment to consider, and in my point of view 28mm would be far better if I did it as a skirmish force or specialist squad on display. If I really wanted to go down the route of collecting a Horus Heresy army that 1) doesn’t take too much room to collect and display and 2) is at a decent price, then the only way is to go down the 6mm scale.
Last year I had a fairly small gathering of Imperial Knight collection for my Battle of Molech inspired collection. This was before I decided to move away from buying GW kits from independent retailers. At the time, I hadn’t really considered Epic was a viable choice since I forgot it existed, and where to even buy miniatures at that scale since GW long since abandoned that gaming system.
Luckily for me, a place called Etsy was my gateway into buying Epic miniatures. I’d purchased a set of three Sicaran Battle Tanks as my first dive into 6mm scale miniatures. This would soon be followed by my recent purchase of second hand Epic Space Marines (60 in total).
Since I’d set my sights on the Battle of Molech with all available lore material on hand, I knew where to go with my project.
Below is a gallery of my current collection featuring the Death Guard, Vassal Knight House Malus of Legio Interfector and Imperial loyalist units.
Right now the Death Guard are my primary focus for the project. Judging by my progress I think I should be done with the basics very soon.
Anyone into Epic 40k/30k? Are you into creating Company sized force or an entire apocalypse Chapter force? Do you play Epic with mates or at an established gaming club? I’m interested to know how Epic 40k is going on today. 🙂
Until next time,
