Why play In the Epic 40,000 universe
Epic is a tabletop wargame set in the fictional Warhammer 40K universe where most Humans live in an age of darkness and ignorance, praying to their God Emperor, while Inquisitors hunt down any who deviate from his righteousness. The Orks are barbaric savages who live for nothing more than war and conquest. The Eldar are an ancient race fallen from greatness, and few in number. Chaos are nightmares given substance as they warp into the material universe. Tyranids are 'The Great Devourer' that assimilates all in its path.
Warhammer 40,000 involves small battles between forces of a few squads of troops and two or three vehicles, Epic 40K features battles between armies consisting of dozens of tanks and hundreds of soldiers. Due to the comparatively larger size of the battles, Epic miniatures are smaller with a typical human being represented with a 6mm/10mm high figure, as opposed to the 25 and 28 mm minis used in Warhammer 40,000.
Plastic and metal Epic miniatures are available through the Games Workshop specialty games section of Games Workshop’s online store. An additional lineup of resin models is available via GW’s Forge World subsidiary.
Now this is an army
I will be posting pictures, painting step by step as well as links to get alternate minis.
