Just finished my Stormsword Section, with the last AFV in the unit – JOKER 8. Joins his brother RATTE 5 …

Nicely done as usual.

Very nice! I also bought some of the decals you use (suits of playing cards). They really make you feel that the vehicles are manned. I know that you've finished many heavy tanks. Do you build a particular army?

Many thanks guys ! Yeah the playing card suits is the method the France army did in early WWII.

Yes I have all of GW Epic Armies. Plus some other 6mm Sci-fi units.

All the Heavy vehicles are assigned to, in this case, my IG Rgts. I use the original SM1 way to organize my units. With a little modification. The SM1 TO&Es are very realistic, close to real military organization methods.

These Stormblades are a Section in the 1st Tank Bn, 2d Co., 3d Det., 99 Rgtl Cbt Tm.

2d Co, 1st Plt is 3 Heavy Marchrius HBTs, 3 different types.

4th Det is a Section of 2 Stormswords. Now on my work bench.

There is a Stormlord, [in the painting queue] from the 1st Tank Bn's Transportation Pool. Bn Spt Dets has a Plt of Mech Inf to ride on the back deck of this Stormlord.

Bn Spt Dets include a Plt of 3 Bombards.

And Section of 2 Minotaurs Hvy SPFA …

Bn Cdr is in a Leman Russ Vanquisher.

1st Co. has a Plt of 3 Leman Russes – 1st Plt

Sec. of 2 Thunderer Assault Guns/Siege Tanks – 3d Det.

Sec. of 2 Destroyer Tank Hunters – 4th Det.

Sec. of 2 Praetor SP MLRS – 2d Det.

This is a Tank Hvy Combined Arms Bn.

Thank you, Legion 4! This army organization is great. I need to find out a layout for these TO&E and unit cards.
Good idea to use whatever you like from all the variants of the game. I can see many good rules in all of them.

Legion 416 Jan 2022 4:02 p.m. PST

You are welcomed ! Yes, we cheery picked from the various versions of Epic. Plus our own gaming experiences starting in the '70s … old fart We started Epic in '90 …
