Epic: Typical Armies

070510epic10An army in Epic: Armageddon consists of a number of units, just as in Warhammer 40K. Units are whole companies, rather than platoons. See the article for a sample Imperial Gurd army and some photos of Epic: Armageddon models.

TypicalArmies

Armies in Epic represent forces much bigger than is possible to represent in a 40K game. For example:

No. UNIT POINTS
1 Imperial Guard company (1 command stand + 12 infantry stands) 250
3 Leman Russ Tank 200
1 Fire support platoon 100
1 Infantry platoon (6 Infantry stands) 100
  TOTAL 650

My, what a big tank you have!

The Traitors prepare to attack.

Two can play at that game.

Most tournament style games of Epic are played with between 3,000 and 5,000 points.

There are official army lists available for Imperial Guard, Orks, Space Marines, Eldar, Chaos Space Marines and Tau. Many of these also have sub lists or variants, for example the Orks also include a Speed Freak list and a Feral Ork list – the latter featuring those armoured dinosaurs!

Similarly, the Eldar have lists for most of the different Craftworlds which gives each Eldar force a particular character.
