Flying Lunchboxes and Evil Lawn Darts!

Boy, it's been a while since I last posted... I've been both busy and lazy - never a good combination. I've also been toying with the idea of making this into more of a Specialist Games blog rather than strictly focusing on Epic. Why? Well, because I like more than just Epic! But enough of that for now..

Speaking of Epic, I recently made up some proxies for models that don't exist in the Epic line. I asked a few great painters to apply paint and brush to said models and what you see below are the results.

First off, the Lunchbox (a Space Marine Storm Raven proxy). The first two are painted in Imperial Fists colors by Egel. The second two are from the Lamenters chapter, painted by CaptPiett. Both guys hang out on the Tactical Command forums.

Next up is the Evil Lawn Dart (a Chaos Dreadclaw proxy). This was painted in World Eaters colors by HerrR, also a regular staple of Tactical Command. To be honest, when I first saw the photo, I thought HerrR was playing a joke on me - I thought I was looking at fullscale 40K models. It took me a few seconds to realize that everything in the photo is Epic scale. Awesome!
Thanks to Egel, CaptPiett, and HerrR for the photos that make these models look so good!
