|A potpurri of Epic 30k armour|
Up first are two more Rhino APCs from the XIV Legion, the "Death Guard". They missed the deadline for the last batch, so I tucked them in with this submission. These two models are old, original plastics from the 90s...I'm still always impressed at how well the detail has held up on these little guys.
Getting a little heavier, three Land Raiders, the "Proteus" variant, from the VII Legion, the "Imperial Fists". These tanks are the mainstays of any Space Marine armoured force - hitting hard while carrying troops in (relative) safety.
Up next is a battery of Whirlwind tanks - "Scorpius" pattern. There is one battery for the Imperial Fists.
And another Whirlwind battery, this one for the XVI Legion, the "Sons of Horus".
Now we move up to some super-heavy tanks. This is a Cerberus Heavy Tank Destroyer, a sort of Jagdtiger of the Space Marine Legions. This is a very heavy, scary laser array mounted on an extra-large and extra-armoured Land Raider chassis. Fitting for the setting, the weapon can have serious side effects on its own vehicle...but I'm sure those are "isolated incidents", right?
The scariest is saved for last. Getting run over by Land Raiders, hit by rockets from Whilrwinds and zapped by the Cerberus is bad enough - but when a Space Marine Legion commander is really mad, he sends a few of these things forward - Fellblade super-heavy tanks. Armed and armoured to end-of-days levels, these thing obliterate the enemy at any range.
I have a lot more Epic stuff in the pending line for my painting desk, but now that I'm choking on the dust of others in my Painting Challenge side duels, it's time to crank the scale-o-meter back to 28mm, I think...hopefully will have some of that to share next week!
