|Legion Tactical Detachment|
|I went with a red/brass colour scheme|
|Eight Tactical Squads, I found these particularly tough to paint and to base.|
|First Support: Legion Dreadnought Talon Squadron|
|If I have it right, these are dead or severely wounded Space Marines who get put in Mechs!|
|Second Support: Legion Vindicator Squadron|
|Third Support: Legion Sicaran Battle Squadron|
|I really enjoyed painting these.|
Well, I have to reiterate that this is a fun project and quite a change from painting 28mm figures. I know my efforts are a poor comparison to those of Byron, Curt, Greg and Iannicks' beautiful creations, but I am hoping they will serve me well on the battlefield. More to come......
I should also say that I have used the Fawcett Avenue Conscripts basing standard for Epic 30k with the hope (and I am sure Iannick will second this) that our western friends will come to Montreal sometime in the future for an Epic Encounter.
I believe their point value for the challenge is 24 (vehicles), 4 (mechs), 20 (figures) for a total of 48 points. It was a lot of work.
ByronM: I would not short sell your stuff John, they look excellent, especially for a colour like Red that is hard to work with! There is nothing wrong with them at all! Your colours and brush work are excellent.
I think the only thing that could be done to improve is a little harsh edge highlight and chipping. However at this scale its hard to pull off, but it is one thing that Greg does to his that really make them pop. I believe he learned the technique to do it from Tacobat (another blogger that obsesses over this stuff and is an amazing painter). If you wanted to punch them up, I would try that. Honestly though, they look very good as they stand now, so they do not "need" it, I would be thrilled to play against these any time.
