Update from Battlegroup Helios:
UPDATE
All Zeus pattern ships and the spear prows have been approved for manufacture. Mould making could start in as little as two weeks with a pre-xmas release quite possible.
Panthera and Lynx, both are now being re-printed and will be put back in production as soon as possible.
Also now in the queue to follow on the heels of these are another ten vessels for various factions.




Awwwww yeah. I can't wait!!

Not sure what you mean, mate, but I'm keen on picking up some cruiser equivalent hulls using the Zeus ships.

Epic scale is best for the true scope of 40K...at a fraction of the cost as well as space required for storage and transport. you can build all those armies you always wanted to build when your bank account told you no.

I secretly think 12-15mm would be perfect but I already have all the plastic Titans so that'd be a waste.

Well it might make painting the troops a bit easier, but i have been playing battletech for so long the 6mm scale is completely normal to me.

Malika made a really good observation in this thread, the classic Plastic titans scale really well with the Vanguard 3mm ranges.

Agree totally <£100 for a complete army most of the time (you can probably do it even cheaper). There are a few guys doing some really mental armies as well (if you have a look at the 30k armies thread down in the GW Specialist Games forum). I'm trying for about 20,000 points worth of Crusade-era World Eaters, which will hopefully encompass at least half a dozen titans, 4-5 infantry companies of marines, tank and artillery companies too (am about 1/4 of the way along so far!)

Definitely think there is something to be said for the look of the massed infantry, titans, vehicles etc. It sits far better I think at 6-8mm than it does at 28mm, where at that scale the vehicles and titans completely dominate what looks much better as an infantry/platoon level game.

Even if they are a slightly larger scale the titanicus titans look close enough. i have a reaver as you have seen in my pics and it doesn't look out of place.

Well considering 28mm 40K was always described to the players as one little section of the front in a larger battle. epic scale is the entire battle.

If i allied all my imperial forces i am looking at

13 aircraft (3 superheavies)
25 vehicles (6 superheavy/titans)
129 infantry.

Not quite as many as you are looking to build.....but i have infected other players at my store. one has some black templar, another khorne, another thousand sons, one with an huge tau army, and the imperial guard guy with the artillery company with defense in depth.

To be completely fair, it is something that happens with real-life APCs. They are mostly clown cars.

Most baffling one might be the BMP-1, which is... well, it has fuel tanks inside the troops' exit doors. I starts at "ridiculous" and goes up from there:



"How do we fit inside that thing?"
"Well, mostly you curl up into a ball. And pray hard."


I know! It's a Soviet APC so the troops should be in front of the fuel tanks. Fuel and APCs are worth more than soldiers after all.


i give it a 9/10. should have drilled out the cannon barrel though

Little random release, not meant as a replacement for the existing Centurion Main Battle Tank, but a hull variant of it!

The designs has seen many weapon fits over the years but the most common armaments (hector configuration) are a regular tank cannon in the turret backed up by a fixed forward hull mounted laser cannon. In addition the hull sides can be configured to mount a sponson weapon most commonly a HMG for close in anti personnel protection.

This model is a regular Centurion tank without track guards.

This set contains:

3 x Centurion hulls without track guards

3 x Hector turret sprues

3 x bow machine guns

8 x hatches (6 closed, 2 open)

Very nice, like the amount of new variants coming out for the tanks.

Are you able to drop any hints of what is coming along next Malika?

Can't say that much. I mean, I've got a picture on what's being developed (and even regarding that I don't know everything), but a lot of it is shrouded in secrecy.

What I can say is that there should be some 6mm reinforcements for the Skinners and Eloi dropping by soon

Eloi reinforcements!

Eloi Federation – Way Seekers - £3.50

Eloi Federation Way Seekers

Function:

The Way Seekers of the Eloi Federation function as the leaders of Eloi Battle Contingents, and are to be found serving at all levels of command from Detachment Commander to Battle Group Leaders. They have many specialist branches within the Eloi’s military establishment. Highly intelligent and extensively trained the “Seekers” as they are commonly known have studied the art of war in all its many aspects and are therefore opponents not to be underestimated.

Equipment:

They wear a modified suit of Eloi battle armour and robes made of an unknown fabric with several remarkable properties which will not be elaborated upon here. Armaments carried by such individuals include conventional Eloi small arms as well as the favoured “great sword” a melee weapon capable of piercing even the mighty armour of our Novan Elites. Certain individuals have also been observed as carrying the less common spear and rarely a staff which may serve as a badge of office.

Observed abilities:

Redacted by order of the high command – Magenta level clearance required.

12 x way seekers

1 x master seeker

Miniatures painted by John Fielding.
