Few days ago Mormeg got an idea for doing "something" with our "Epic" scale models. We decided to make two armies from the Horus Heresy era - forces loyal to the Terra and traitors. We aren't sure yet which ruleset we will use. There are probably two options. Army lists taken from FW books, slightly changed to make them work with Epic, or simplified WH40K (Armageddon?), with army lists from FW books too.
Rules are not set yet, but color schemes are. My brother opted for traitors, wanting to paint heresy era World Eaters, I decided to paint sons of Dorn - Imperial Fists. Both Legions will be painted in pre-heresy or heresy era colors, which is much more important for World Eaters, as they changed colors after Horus was defeated. The only visible difference for Fists is different color of armour trim, changed from black to red.
So, in between other, larger miniatures, we painted first sample bases, to learn the colors and check if everything works. All models so far were painted by brush, but most of the next bases will be painted with airbrush (basic colors and highlights, details will be painted by brush of course).
