Epic 30k - Imperial Armour for Imperial Fists

The treads of Dorn...armour of the VII Legion for Epic 30k
The parade of reinforcements for Prairiecon 2016 continues! In this entry we have an assortment of vehicles for the VII Legion, Rogal Dorn's Imperial Fists.  A few of these have been finished for a while, but I completed the balance last week in Sault Ste Marie.

For light, basic troop duties there are a pair of Rhino APCs.  There is a lone Land Raider Proteus.  There are two Spartan heavy troop carriers and a Typhon (for those up-close-and-personal missions).  And to really slay those who refuse the light of the Emperor, there is a Glaive super heavy tank.

A Glaive super heavy tank - a reckoning beckons for the followers of Horus...

Land Raider Proteus - will join three others already painted to round out a detachment into four vehicles
The lunacy of the Legion super heavy tanks is quite wonderful.  The Falchions are bonkers kind of super-everything-destroyers, but the Glaive is a more nuanced (LOL) wrecker of things, with a horrifying Volkite something-or-other turret and the ubiquitous quad-lascannon sponsons to mow down the enemies who somehow survive - what is it called? Oh, yes - "deflagration"...ah, 30k!

Spartan troop carrier - I just love these things, they look so...legion-y...

Tons of firepower and troop carrying capacity - let the good times roll (literally)
The Spartans are marvellous too - this weekend will have some Legion infantry detachments mounted aboard these things, with the Typhon for close range support. Backed by super heavies like the Glaive, the crash should be satisfying to all concerned!

Point blank heavy support for the chaps riding in the Spartans...truly the tyranny of the so-called "Emperor" will be difficult to overcome...
This round of reinforcements brings a rough collection parity between my Sons of Horus and the Imperial Fists for Epic 30k.  There are few odds and ends here and there to truly round them out (like a Rapier battery for the Sons of Horus and a command infantry stand and a heavy support detachment for the Imperial Fists) but we are set for a rather shattering game of Epic 30k on Sunday morning at Prairiecon! I hope to post some photos and a battle report once the the game is over.
