A rematch from last year, well overdue! 4350 pts a side, Orks vs Marines plus DIY Leviathan. Loads of pics – enjoy!

Very cool! I still have all my old Space Marine stuff stored away. Haven't played in 20+ years, but this report has me tempted to drag it all out again!

Very fond of Space Marine, think I preferred it to regular 40k back in the day! Would be nice to see GW revisit it.. in the meantime, fly the flag ;-)

Thanks guys! @DinOfBattle2, they're tea lights with teddy bear stuffing sprayed with black spray paint- got the idea from Mel the Terrain Tutor, he looksdid a fantastic tutorial on them.

@Oberlindes thank you!

@Destrier good, it's a cracking system. Planning to check out NetEpic this year :-)

@Legion thanks man, seen your 6mm work and it's awesome :-)

@Chalfant thanks man, and we're planning on doing more Epic this year, including (gasp) scratchbuilding!

Happy New Year all ;-)

That's the one! These things look awesome and they're dead easy to build- nice work @DinOfBattle

Nice write-up. We held an Epic game over the holidays, but I had to chuckle -- sorry -- about leveling a building to take out the infantry inside instead of firing/charging it. One of our players did the same thing in our game. :)
