Epic: Chaos Marines (my next project)

I was rummaging around in my loft the other week and came across a bunch of stuff I'd forgotten I'd got.

My friend Mike and I were big fans of the orginal "Adeptus Titanicus/Space Marine" games when they were first released at Version 1 and the update to Version 2. By the time GW created "Epic: Armageddon" (which featured a complete rules re-write" we'd completed our stint at University and our opportunities for gaming lapsed. Neither of us really liked the Armageddon rules anyway, so the entire thing fell by the wayside.

At the time we were both really just playing Marines - it was a Heresy setting so Marine vs. Marine was perfectly valid. I remember collecting models for Imperial Guard, but when I found this little treasure-trove in the loft I was somewhat surprised to find I also had models for Chaos, Eldar and Orks too.

Mike and I had recently talked about having a game of Epic W40K and I'd just stumbled across the awesome Net Epic rules resource (apparently others besides us were not enamoured of the Armageddon rules either, but wanted to be able to keep up with a lot of the new forces GW released for the game like Tau, Tyranids and so on. The Net Epic guys took it upon themselves to maintain and expand the V2 ruleset to allow players to continue to game with that ruleset and expand the meta too).

So we've started planning a game!

I'm going to build and field a Chaos force, which currently looks like this:
Got to start somewhere!

Wish me luck!
