my Nick's Largo and I am playing Epic for quite a while now. Till now I have only read on the forum here, because there is a german forum (yeah, I am another german player) and I think it's a very good one. But since Black Legion asked me kindly on the tourney in April to post pictures of my army on Taccom, and I had nothing better to do this evening, I thought I might give it a shot.

edit: Photos are gone, check this link to get the photos and also some trivia concerning my models ;)

Very nice army and welcome to the forums!
I really like the bases.

I hope you will share more photos of your Epic stuff?

Note the "SCUD-Pit" in the far right of the second row of pictures. He uses it as a proxy for a Lunar Cruiser :D

Very nice armies, that rocket launchbay reminded me of the GLA Scud Launcher even before I read your text, nice work! :)

And then there was the weekend. And also an update. Thought I put out my paints since it was raining at evening anyway. So I finished up all the infantry for one Tactical Detachment and a Dread. And I only painted about 4 hours :) Neat!

Here's the guys:

And I also did Sgt. Paint test for the Necs. I wanted them to have the same theme than my 40K necs. I am still rather nhappy with them. Any criticism or advice on them? The "big" warrior is black/regal blue/regal and ultra and the small immortals are black/ultra/enchanted blue and white. Any comments?

This "blog" is covered in multiple layers of dust and I want to change this. I tried several forms of blogging so far, including facebook (evil piece straight from hell, never ever shall I step there again), twitter (commentwise bad) and in forums like this. The problem with forums is simple: No person is registered in only one forum, I for example also use the German Epic-Battles.de Forum more often since it's my native language.
I recently started to use a normal blog (Zinngebirge, Leadmountains in English) on Blogger and I am very happy with it, editing wise. You are far more powerful when it comes to editing and the functionality for embedding pictures are great. But, and that's the downside, you have to be a registered member on Blogger, Google or a couple of other services to write comment. Most wargamers I know and who are reading my blog, meet me personally and tell me there thoughts then on occasion.
I really, really like feedback concerning my models since I am sometimes insecure if I should go way A or B. So I am back here, on TacCom, hoping to get more feedback. I will continue to blog about my hobby stuff in German on my blog but will also try to share some pictures and shortened versions of the entries here. And this is it, forum blogging take 5431 ;)

I am currently scratching an insert for the Sovereign Class Land Ship (Dystopian Wars, Spartan Games) for using it as a Leviathan. The basic structure is done, next up are details.

When you post converted super heavies could you state base size or hull length so we can get an idea of size?

Post subject:  Re: Largo's Hobby Blog

I will do that when I am finished. I am planning to do comparision shots with an AOT and an old E40K Rhino, too.

The base it's glued on is 75mmx60mm, so you can get a rough idead now :)

I also use a Sovereign Land Ship as my Leviathan, great model at great price.

But, what really impressed me is your C&C GLA army. I would like to have such an army because I love the C&C generals theme, your conversions are just brilliant!!!!

I see where you're going. When I saw the Spartan games dystopian line of mini's I just had to start a squat army full of WE-goodness.
I'm using the sovereign also as a common chassis for the Colossus and Leviathan. Still thinking if the prussian big landship (can't remember the name) wouldn't pass better for the cyclops..
Great work on the conversion!

Update on the Leviathan. Please note that these are just basic concept colours.

I want to build more Air Cavalry for my guard army, this is the ToDo Pile for 2012, inlcuding even more Exodus stuff, Edenites. I also have some other projects in the pipeline, but the photos were bad. I will try again tomorrow. I friggin' love the Exodus line, like you can see ;)
