I've use to see Epic 40K figures in game stores for years. Even though I love sci-fi gaming and micro-scale figures, I never bought the rules, or any of the miniatures.
Despite being classified as 6mm, the figures always looked much bigger than the miniatures from other manufacturers, like GHQ, C in C and Ground Zero Games.
Now that I've been dabbling in WH40K, I almost regret not purchasing any Epic figures, especially since it is no longer published and supported by Games Workshop.
In my case, I'm using M-113 armored personnel carriers (APCs) and M-113 medium reconnaissance vehicles (MRVs), to count as Rhinos and Predators used primarily by the Space Marines.
Starting with six M-113s and five MRVs, I divided them up to match the color schemes of my other sci-fi micro miniatures.
I used my terrain board and a backdrop to illustrate these new figures, and provided some examples of well-known Space Marine Chapters:
|The White Scars make a quick strike against a suspected enemy position.|
|The Adepta Sororitas searching for heretics.|
|Space Wolves on the prowl.|
|A Blood Angel Predator on patrol.|
|A Dark Angel Predator covering the same ground.|
Of course, there are the master craftsmen, like this guy...
