One of my favourite pieces of scenery has to be the Epic Cathedral from Forgeworld.
I like the fact it is based on the ruins from the Epic40K boxed set and therefore fits in well not just with the other Forgeworld buildings, but also the ruins. Other bits are from the Imperator Titan which adds to the Imperial feel of the building.
It is a hefty piece of resin and certainly dominates the battlefield.
I have just finished reading The Victorious Opposition and I am about to purchase the next in the series, Return Engagement, which has just been published in the USA and available in the UK from Amazon.
You can purchase the UK edition in October (which has a much better cover in my opinion).
I am a bit of a fan of Turtledove, but didn’t enjoy American Empire as much as previous books until I read the final part of the trilogy which was very exciting and riveting. Glad in one way I left it a bit before I read it, as I have not needed to wait for the start of the sequel trilogy.
I still really like this conversion I did… I actually did this conversion some time ago.
However it still remains one of my favourite conversions. I do wonder if Forgeworld will ever release an Epic version of their own 40K scale modem, but they seem to take an age to produce Epic Ork models.
Now here’s a way of getting lots of Orks on the ground…
I was thinking about the Defence Force and about having some aircraft or ships larger than the ones sold by Forgeworld (and GW) and have thought about for some time a large Ork Heavy Bomber converted from the FW Imperial Maurauders.
I also like the Landa concept from Epic Armageddon though I think the model is somewhat too small (hopefully FW will bring out a “bigger” in scale version).
I also noticed the resemblance between the Landa and the Rebel Transport in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.
As I purchased many moons ago the AMT/ERTL Hot Base kit which comes with an approximate 1/200th scale model kit of the Rebel Transport, I got thinking. It would make a great Extra Large Landa (or should that be a Big Landa in Ork speak).
I had thought originally about using the Transport as an Imperial Transport, but the more I look at it the more I keep thinking Ork Landa…
