Have been thinking of reviving the Epic: Mechanicus supplement that has been sitting 80% finished on my hard drive for most of 3 years whilst I waited for something useful to happen with the NetEA process (it didn't).


Things that would be needed:
- Unit photos
- New maps that aren't just temp scribbles
- A few artworks or staged photos
- A few of the imperial unit descriptions need filling in
- Some testing of the following lists:
Imperial Fists
Eldar Titan Clan
Gargant Bigmob
Skitarii PDF

- Last I heard the following lists were generally well-regarded and probably don't need much testing:
Black Templars
Attilans
Steel Legion
Stompy Onslaught
Speed Freaks
Blood Axes
Sun-Tzork's Grotling Horde!!!1!!

Any lists that didn't get tested would just get dropped.

For the Titan Legion list, I'd just include the current one in there, the NetEA one, and the EUK one, and players can play whatever they want.

Thoughts?




EDIT: Supplement Last Updated 26th feb

Awesomesauce!

This supplement have everything i want for Epic!

I'm ready to help out with the playtesting for sure! Will start by really reading up on the lists!

This will be a great project and might help kickstart the slowed down process of playtesting thats currently happening.

I can test both the Skitarii PDF and the Gargant Big Mob, i have models for both armies!

Just need the stats for the Mechanicum forces and we´re good to go! Tell me if theres any certain builds that should be tested specificly.

It would be a good thing to get a finished IF list. :-)

How about integrating your Titan fighting game within, as an optional rule add-on?

I'm happy to get involved in this E&C, I'm probably able to assist with the Ork side of things more than anything else.

Cheers

Seems like there's some support.

Biggest immediate requirements:

- Unit photos.
- Pick a list to playtest as prime list. This will help focus testing, we can work on one prime list at a time and knock them down like dominoes.
- Unit datafax texts.

So,

Unit photos - GW models or conversions or 100% scratchbuilds only. Go!

Pick a prime list for playtesting - I suggest OGBM as prime to start with. I think it's pretty close to done, just needs some focused testing.

Unit datafax texts - I will take any submissions and slot them in. Write away!

If you need the current titan list, I just posted it in the AdMech forum. I'm not sure, but you might be interested in replacing the Armored Coy list in there with the Cataphractii list. It would help kick start play testing and give us a unified goal rather than testing out two separate Skitarii Armor lists that have a good deal of similarities.

Best news so far. I did my titans with speaker systems to match the description of legio destructor!

Now there is even a list with their name!

I'll deliver one report next week with the OGBM! Not to good at drawing or taking photographs so I'll mainly be doing playtest duty.

My Mechanicum models is not so well suited for pictures either... You know...

I would be VERY HAPPY to see this come to fruition! This project sounded really awesome and showcased the scale of epic :)

I have taken on championing the Black Templars and put out a revised list with a small number of changes (the addition of the Stormtalon being the only really signifigant one), but it's mainly the same as before as the old playtesting that went into it should keep it in good condition to go in. I should be getting a game in with them on Tuesday and will test them more in future with the aim of working to get them approved.

I'll try and get some playtesting in online over tabletop (happy to try OGBM) when I can (can't right now as the family I'm staying with have low internet limits).

Happy to include your BT list Glyn!

Would you be able to get some unit photos & datafax texts together for the list?
