Epic Armageddon is the new version of Epic from Games Workshop now available. It builds on the Epic40K system and takes ideas and concepts from previous versions of Epic.
Ork Heavy Bommers
Forge World have released an Epic Heavy Ork Bommer for Aeronautica Imperialis. There are three versions as well, and with interchangeable parts.
Doesn't quite look as I would have envisaged, but still nice.
Our new Ork Bommerz for Aeronautica Imperialis; there are in fact three of these beasts, and each is superbly detailed with no end of engines, guns, rockets and wacky Ork ‘tech’. The fact that all the component parts (noses, wings, fuselages, tails etc.) are all fully interchangeable between the models means if you buy multiple bommerz there’s loads of different cool combinations and looks you can achieve. We couldn’t resist going to town on this ourselves as you can see in our extensive (40+ picture) gallery here.
Ork Flak Wagonz
There are some nice new Epic Scale Ork Flak Gunz & Flak Wagonz from Forgeworld, which will make some nice reinforcements for my Ork Epic army. Hopefully at some point Forge World will make some more Epic Ork stuff which is not just for Aeronautica Imperialis.
New for Aeronautica Imperialis (not to mention your games of Epic) are new Ork Flak Gunz and Flak Wagons, designed by Will Hayes. These highly detailed little beauties look great with their quad barrelled shoota cannon and are ready to rip enemy aircraft out of the sky in a suitably loud orkish hail of lead.
This was an entry in the UK 2006 Golden Demon awards.
I have made quite a bit of progress on my desert terrain boards, check out the workbench feature.
Feral Orks Airship
Warmaster Nice from the epic40k.co.uk forums posted this fantastic picture of a Feral Ork Airship which he created.
Though it looks like it was converted from a Forgeworld Airship, according to Warmaster Nice though inspired by the said airship was in fact scratch-built, which is amazing, he has done a fantastic modelling and paintjob.
You can check out Warmaster Nice's website.
Feral Orks on Workbench
I have been working on my Feral Orks (and Airfield Defence Vehicles) recently and have finished a few of the models.
Here is a picture of some of the vehicles for my Feral Ork Army.
You can see how they were painted in the workbench.
The Eldar and Feral Ork supplement for Epic Armageddon is now out as are the Eldar miniatures releases.

The Feral Ork army was seen on the Fanatic Studio display at UK GamesDay 2004. Photos coming soon... Check the blog for a picture now.
Full Range of Miniatures now out
Virtually all the miniatures for the first phase of Epic Armageddon are now out. Some of the miniatures are excellent others are okay.
Ork Airfield Defence Force - Variant Ork Army Lists
As most people who play Epic Armageddon are aware, once an army list is finalised nothing can be added to it, so when new models, such as the new Forgeworld Bommers, are released they can not be used in the current army lists...
One thing Jervis mentioned in the latest White Dwarf got me thinking, especially with the release of the Ork Bommers from Forgeworld.
As most people who play Epic Armageddon are aware, once an army list is finalised nothing can be added to it, so when new models, such as the Bommers, are released they can not be used in the current army lists. Either you use the "counts as" rule or create your own rules.
In the White Dwarf article, Jervis talks about having quite a few army lists (aka Hordes of the Things or DBM).
It occurred to me that you could have quite a few variant Ork lists, potentially at least twenty different lists!
Therefore I am working on a Ork Airfield Defence Force which will include the new Forgeworld Ork Bommers.
