6mm – Epic Eldar Aspect Warrior paint schemes

I’ve been working on some more Epic Eldar – this time figuring out what paint schemes I want to use for my Aspect Warriors. Because I have a Biel Tan army list I get to field more of these than other Craftworlds and they’re a bigger focus for the army.

I decided to go with very traditional schemes – the ‘official’ ones used by the Games Workshop essentially, because these are pretty nice looking for one thing, but more importantly are very distinctive on the tabletop. It’s important to be able to tell which stands are which at a glance.

Because these are my first time painting 6mm figures and they’re the prototype which informs how all the other Aspect Warriors are painted, I spent more time on them than I will on their comrades.

Epic Space Marine Vehicle Conversions

Hello! Since Bacon’s been posting some 6mm Epic stuff I thought I’d join in and show off some of the conversion work I’ve done. There are tons of old plastic Rhinos available cheaply on eBay, but some of the other Space Marine vehicles are harder to find – particularly the Vindicator, which I don’t think ever had a plastic model. Since most of them are heavily based on the Rhino chassis I thought that would be a nice conversion project. By filing off the doors on the front and top I made space for the various types of turret/gun, which I either build from plasticard or modelled using a mould from one of the official models.

Here’s a sample of the results:

From left to right: converted Whirlwind missile launcher; converted Vindicator siege tank; converted Predator Annihilator tank; and good ol’ plastic Rhino APC on which the other three are all based.

6mm – Epic Eldar Wave Serpents

While I’m not very keen on Warhammer 40k or Age of Sigmar, I like the Games Workshop universe quite a lot and I’ve always had a soft spot for Epic.

Some time ago Olaf and I discovered Epic UK¬†and their excellent updated lists for the Epic Armageddon iteration of Games Workshop’s nominally 6mm scale wargame set in the 40k universe. We’ve since played a few games – I have a Biel Tan Eldar force, rather small and with few of the miniatures actually painted by me. I got a lot of second hand minis from Ebay with pretty poor but not horrible paintjobs and for a long time I’ve been meaning to paint up more of my Eldar force myself.

I actually started painting my Wave Serpents a while ago with a very basic scheme, but I’ve only just gotten around to painting them properly. I really love the original Mk.1 Wave Serpent model (it is SO much better than the newer Mk.2 model in my opinion) and these were a lot of fun to paint.
