|VII Legion additions for my Epic 30k forces|
Flipping back and forth once again on the Epic 30k painting - last entry had Sons of Horus, so for this entry I'm back to the VII Legion, Rogal Dorn's Imperial Fists. As with the Sons of Horus, we have some artillery support, but there is also some additional infantry and a command base.
To help the officer (either a Centurion or a Praetor) stand out on the table I mounted the command group on a round base.
|Preator ready to fight the traitors!|
|My photo skills suck - apologies...|
|Really like the anachronistic standard bearers in Space Marin Legion command units...|
|Boring, but they get the job done - tactical stands and Rhino APCs|
There are a couple of tactical squads and two rhinos to carry them around. A basic element for the Epic Space Marine Legion forces is the tactical detachment of 8 stands plus Rhino APCs. This group of four will now round out my VII Legion collection so they can field two basic tactical detachments - good building blocks for an Epic force.
|This amounts to half of a basic detachment in an Epic game|
Moving along, here is a solitary Whirlwind rocket launcher. As with the Sons of Horus in the last entry, this lone vehicle was painted to provide a fourth launcher to complete a battery of vehicles to support the Imperial Fists.
|A Space Marine classic - the Whirlwind rocket launcher|
|This one vehicle will join three others already painted to make a complete battery of four launchers|
And more long range artillery, a battery of Legion Basilisks. These long range guns will provide some heavy firepower to back up the VII Legion on either defence or attack.

|These models really make me think of the German "Hummel" from WW2|
|This group will bring some pain to those to who turn from the light of the Emperor!|
