Anyone else prematurely excited by the Specialist Games revival? In anticipation, I’ve finished painting my Epic 40k scenery that I built a year and a half ago. They are a bit more colourful in places than I really intended but that’s the vegetation for you, I may tone it down a little. The aim was to make a very black and white, desaturated gaming board so the little Space Marines really stand out, partially for dramatic effect and partially because it gets really hard to spot the little fuckers. I have an Imperial Guard army too, but unfortunately they are in camouflage and are almost impossible to see.
I’ve actually got a road network that I should paint next, but I am unsure if it will look particularly good – whoever planned these buildings didn’t really plan for roads it seems. After that I have thousands more tiny wee men to paint, and a dilemma about titans: I have a bunch of titan models but I think a new Adeptus Titanicus must be on the cards with shiny new models. Plus the titans are not in the correct scale (they are too small), which bothers me somewhat considering they are the most iconic part of Epic.
I seem to always want to play games which need their own scenery, Epic, Necromunda, Mordheim and more. As much as I love making scenery, it is a bugger to store it.
