Chaos here too.
I liked the daemon engines as well, actually there were more than three . When I started collecting there were three but around the same time the Bane Lord was released gw released three additional Khorne engines. There was also these flying daemon engines of Tzeentch. Just about the time I quit collection I think there was released some for nurgle too.

yer i think i remember now, wasent the tzeentch a large flying tower or two and there was a big bird or something that could drop boms out of the back as it was flying that was cool :twisted:

speaking of old times did you ever get to play the old horus herase game.
it was a card based game were you was re-enacting the invasion of terra by horus. that was a top game too.

You're right about the Daemon Engines. btw the last one of Tzeentch was a fighter plane.

I haven't even heard of the game, hehe. What was it like?

it was cool you could be chaos ie the invaders or the imperials ie defending .you played on a bord with the palace and the two space ports plus uver placers ,and you just scrapped over it but you had to be smart cose you had take out laser silos or they would shot down your ships and if you had controlle of the space ports you could bring down more troops. it was all random game lenth you could even have horus asultting the palace walls it was mint.

i think that they brought one out for when nids attacked one of the elder craftworlds too not too shure thore.
any way they were top one way way or anuver.

any way back to the main subject of epic did you ever use the primarcs (of chaos that is) i never got round to buying them that is.

I would play, but I can't paint 28mm scale miniatures, so I hate to think what would happen with 15mm scale. Are there Orks?

yes there are orks! I also played with MasterBelial in the good old days, where I was commanding the Emperors Most Benign, The Ultramarines!
*hail*

Also had tank detachments from IG, and 1 imperator titan, two warlords and a reaver from Legio Metallica.

Man, we had some fun back then, didn't we? :) 20'000pts per side ;)

Do they still sell epic 40k stuff? One guy said he didn't think it was in the shops anymore. That mean you can only get it mail order?

I wonder why epic 40k never caught on as big. I mean it IS a pain in the ass to paint the mniatures, but recently i have been thinking of how i could paint troops with less effort by planning things right. I mean a base coat color, a drybrushed highlight, and some gunmetal on the guns and base the thing and it might look good with certain armies.

I collected orks for a while, but its insane to think about painting real detail on those guys. I want to get into it again but play an imperial guard tank regiment so i don't need as many troops i hope.

I used to play Epic 40k. I played orks, and man was it a sight to behold. Hundreds of little buggers swarming the area and dozens of war buggies and battlewagons with their spiky little spears on the front. It was intense. Even bands of gretchin could work, cuz I'd field like 20-30 stands for the same amount of points a couple ork stands or battlewagon would cost. Granted, their blunderbusses only fired a s short spit away, but there were a lot of them. :lol:

What is there in 40k that's not in Epic? Cause it would be cool to get my hands on some of them old 15mm minis, but I need to know what's available.
