Hi. Another question about the upcoming Epic A game. I've got moderate sized forces for the following armies under the old 'Space Marine" ruleset, Ultramarines, Imperial Guard, Titan Legions, Orks and a few Eldar/Tyranids.  I was looking to bulk some of these forces out a little, but I need to know roughly how the EpicA force structural works. Space Marine was very rigid, Epic40K very flexible, what's EpicA going to be like? I just don't want to buy two IG Hellhounds and find out they need to come in groups of three or something similar!

I dont know what space marine was like, but I think EpicA is similar.

The formations are pretty rigid.  For example, space marine tactical units are bought in formations of 6 stands.  4 for devs, assault and termies. Land Raiders are in fours, Predators etc are in 3's I think.

Orks are a warboss, 4 Nobz and 8 boyz.  With extras available in the quantities of 5 (which can be pure boyz, or a mixture including stormboyz etc.)
Trukks and buggies are in 5's and same for upgrades. Stompas in 3's battlewagons 2's and fortresses are a single unit.

Imperial Guard vehicles are mainly in threes when bought as upgrades.  Formations of Lemans are in 9's.


Hope this helps a little.

Thanks, that's very useful. In fact, EpicA seems very similar to Space Marine in the kind of formations you use.

why not become an Armageddon Playtester

Epic Armageddon Playtesters Vault

that way you can download the rules and the army lists

admittedly they are in beta format, but it will give you an idea

I was tempted, but I don't really have the time even to try the mini game they ask you to do first. Maybe after my uni terms and my time temping at Vodafone ends, I might be able to give it a go. Then again, I'll probably just get swamped by all those things I keep putting off 'til then :)

It cant be! He says that he got it for a lot more, so it must be a bargain!  :L  This never ceases to amuse me. I will see what it finally goes for. Perhaps I can convince him to buy some of my stuff...

I don't really have time to make up some, er, creative e-mails. In fact, I don't really have time to finish...

That is just so sad. $41.00 for what amounts to left overs.

The troop sprue and the vehicle sprue are both still available through US Mail Order for $3.50 each. The Dreads are $2.00 each and the Pred is $3.00 and the Razorback is $3.50 so let's see, the stuff on that auction could have been bought from Games Workshop for less then $20 USD.

So for the $41 I could get 2 troop sprues, 1 vehicle sprue, the three Dreads, a full Pred formation (4), five Land Speeders, and still have about $2.50 left over.

Just Sad...
