Title: Epic player here, just joined
Chasmdancer - December 5, 2011 06:10 AM (GMT)
Just joined these forums, and good to see so many people posting stuff recently. I've been looking for forums to discuss Chaos with and quite a few seem to have fallen dormant.
I've been wargaming for around 20 years, but have had to put it on the backburner for about 7-8 due to some annoying thing called life - lack of space, time, patience etc.
But now I've moved to a bigger house, well new country actually, and have lots more time on my hands, so I've dug out my Chaos boxes, blown off the dust and gotten ready to be the grand corrupter once more.
Here's the thing, and it may be a stigma to some. I play Epic Scale, and no other.
Hopefully some of you on here play this scale too and we can compare notes etc. If not, ain't no problem, great to talk to like minded folk.
I'm in the process of dividing my miniatures into 4 armies (can't think why, can you?) I'm aiming for around 10,000pts each. Over the years I've collected many of the old plastic warlord titans from ebay, but not had the chance to chaosify them. Till now. I plan to start taking pics of my WIP, as feedback is much appreciated, and probably needed as i'm a bit rusty as you can imagine.
Hoping to talk to you guys soon

Welcome to the forums. It's always good to have some oldschool gamers here. I don't know if we have anyone playing epic scale games, but atleast we have few who play games of epic sizes, like 10,000pts in fantasy battle =) I hope you like it here and perhaps post some pics of your army.

Well met Chasmdancer!
Sounds to me like we have things in common.
Came back to WHFB after a long hiatus a couple of years ago, too. Big fan of those big games as well. You'll find some in the Batrep section that arn't quite 10k but just about.. We'll get to that next summer. :)
Welcome to the Forum!
In my enthusiasm I kinda totally missed you meant the game Epic.
I thought you were talking about 'epic' game sizes in general.
Oh well.. Matters little! Welcome none the less!

I'm an infrequent Epic player myself, although it must be at least 2 years since I had a game. I started off collecting Space Marines and Orks when Epic 40,000 came out, but then started collecting Chaos some time later to add some variety (as no-one else was playing them) and thanks mostly to ebay I must have well over 10k myself.
I have plenty of Chaos Marines and Titans, but usually I prefer playing the Lost and the Damned list because of the awesome Daemon Engines. What Chaos player could turn down the opportunity to field a Lord of Battles or Plague Tower! Just wish I could get hold of Fulgrim and the few Daemon Engines I need to complete my collection, but they are very hard to come by.
Anyway, welcome to the forum. :)

Thanks for the welcome guys!
I started Epic when 'Space Marine Ed2 came out' 1992? I've stuck to that system ever since, starting as Orks, then Squats. But a friend of mine beat me several times with his Chaos army so I started thinking I needed to change sides!
The old stuff is very tricky to get hold of. I managed to get a Lord of Battles a few months ago and managed to get one minus it's head recently. But my main attraction was getting titans, as I wanted to serious corrupt them into twisted chaos freaks. I've managed to get 21 warlords, two imperators (one missing bits), a reaver and 3 warhounds. So plenty to be getting on with.
I did want a plague tower years ago and couldn't get one anywhere so I decided to build my own out of bits. It needs some repair as it along with some of the titans got damaged in my move - from UK to the States. But I'll be putting some pics up of what I've got so far.

My Plague Towers are scratch-built too. As much as I would love to get hold of the genuine article they always go for more than I'm prepared to bid!
Look forward to seeing how your corrupted Titans turn out.

Welcome to the forum.
Lets see you post some pics as you chaosify those epic bits.
I loved my old 1992 era plastic titans
