I want to get into epic.

I remember hearing somewhere that IG was a good army to learn with.

This has come up for sale:

Is it a decent list? One that I can grow with as I get into the system?

looks like a good deal....with the amount of tanks available you could build a Minervan Tank Legion (IG) army...if you wanted to expand collection to include infantry there are several 6mm sci-fi ranges that would be suitable...

just realised i know that army...a mate sold it to the current owner...its a nice army...its a mix of GW and forgeworld stuff...it was built as a Minervan Tank Legion force...

i would recommend buying it as its a great army to start with...

Thanks.

I didn't realise till after I posted that the seller is based in Perth. If the seller is reading this, apologies for any offence caused by going behind your back!!

That's a really good army, at a great price. It has more than enough tanks for 3000pt+ games, good AA, death strikes and artillery. You'd want to add some infantry if you want to play Steel Legion or the other Guard variants, but that's ready to go as Minervans immediately with nothing else added.

Buy it :D

Thanks guys, I ended up deciding to buy this army.

I had a quick look at the rule book last night.

It only seemed to cover armies of the Imperium and Orcs.

What's the current status with rules & lists, granted GW have dropped all support?

Is there anything similar to the Blood Bowl Living Rules and community?

check out this thread...

viewtopic.php?f=7&t=14196

it has all the useful stuff you need to know...the community does has its own rules, locally we play the community made version of EPIC:Armageddon...you can download it for free and the Tactical Command forum is where the community does most of its good work.
