Those are amazing.. As for the 3mm I don't know how people do it, I'm struggling with the 6mm guys!

I've made some World Eater Heavy Support (these are Great Crusade-era, rather than Heresy, so are still using recognisable tactics etc.). The minis are Vanguard (the new Heavy Support novan elite, which are really lovely) and the tanks are your classic GW Mk1 Rhino from the original plastics sets. I had run out of rhinos so these guys get to drive around in a Land Raider

3mm isn't that hard, especially with GW's new contrast paints. Also check the painting tutorial by Apoc. The great thing about 3mm is that you can recycle all your old Epic aircraft and Titans.

Good looking ranks, Pacific.

On Epic ffront, I tried to rescue some slightly badly printed Thanatars by swapping in some Leviathan arms (they got robo fists and antipersonnel dakka with belt-feeds, why not). Breaks uniformity in the ranks nicely, too.

Very nice Sherrypie, those look like a very smooth print.

Converting at 6mm scale! Hurrah!

Malika - that's an interesting point about the 3mm scaling with the original Epic Titans, that's a great idea.

Just a pic of everything Epic-related that I have painted over the past few months, effectively 'lockdown edition'

Not my full collection, sadly that's currently with someone that is shielding at the moment so I can't really get hold of it. But these guys are ready to join them (and hopefully get some more terrain done at that point) hopefully before too long.

What has become apparent from looking at that photo is that I need to do some more Orcs!

These are my 3mm Sons of Horus:


3 Infantry Companies, each with five platoons (each heavy weapon platoon is split across two bases so each company has six infantry bases) and transport.

1 Heavy Infantry Company with three platoons and transport.

1 incomplete Armour Company with two platoons.

1 incomplete Heavy Armour Company with two platoons plus a command vehicle.


Closeup.

Also, someone mentioned 6mm space hulk. I did a bit of that: https://www.dakkadakka.com/gallery/images-110777-56116_Space%20Hulk.html

Those are really great Samsonov. I take it are that range the same as the 6mm ones, but mini-fied? (or different sculpts?)

What rules system are you planning to use with them?

Most of Vanguard Miniatures' 3mm range is their 6mm stuff at 50%, some details have been chunked up to make them less fragile of course.

As for rules, you might wanna check Dominion.

Cannot comment on how the 3mm relates to the 6mm as I have no Vanguard 6mm. That said, with the 3mm range there is a lot of different units, each unit has a lot of different poses, the models have a good level of detail, they paint up well, there are very few breakages when I am getting them off the sprue compared to other 3mm manufacturers, so there is much to recommend.

Not sure what rules I will use. I only play solo so I want something with a lot of hidden units, unknown numbers of enemies, reserves, detailed command and control, something which integrates well with a map based campaign. Perhaps something from two hours wargames might be best, or a mod for future war commander perhaps. I am a big fan of strike legion ruleset but they do not have a platoon level rules (they have a squad level and a company level but nothing in between), so modding something there might be possible. That said, having played it solo, I think that Dominion would produce a good game if you want something two player.

Trying out washer bases, the print supports can be handily used to cover the hole as well as provide a nice direction for the basing style

Thanks Samsonov, the taghmata is growing. The spiky things are just bases with 3d printing support tiles on them, soon to be filled with more models.

I got my Vanguard cybershadows in, now to put those together...

Also decided to punish myself and repair a dozen of armlessly printed Castellax with clipped servitor parts

Right, so here's about 9000 points before I start putting on the basing splodges.















Add a box or two of Aeronautica fliers and it's a nice, round 10k of stuff that can ally as much again in titans from Favilla as needed

Wow! That is all I will say about that.

Super impressive. Have you thought about colour schemes or themes for basing, anything like that yet?

Really looking forward to seeing how these turn out.

I'm a bit torn on the scheme, really. I want it to be different than my Death Guard, so no predominantly light colours, and I don't want to go for the ever present red as the main colour.

It'll probably end up somewhat similar to what my titan legio sports so they can easily ally on the tabletop and hail from the same world:



Brown base with red and bone details, with the more vibrant red being reserved for the priesthood to separate them from the rabble could work as a starting point.

A muddy red brown would be nice compromise for a mechanicus/death guard colour scheme.

I am afraid to ask what army do you have planned next?

Well my backstory is that the entire first company is venerable dreads the chapter does not have the resources to produce terminator suits or any other ground vehicles-just air power, speeders and dreads to support my infantry.

Technically i have facilitated 3 other armies by getting some friends gift starter sets. our tau player has something like 20K points worth another friend ended up with a 10K point guard artillery company with defense in depth and the guy i played last night used his khorne berserker army i got him started with.

fun times.

As for building anything else....nothing is on the radar at the moment....unless they come out with wraithguard/lords i might think about an alaitoc force.
