   Thanks for that advice, I'd love to take it, however at the present I
lack the models. When I was playing five years ago I had the largest
collection of Epic minatures I had ever encountered. I provided models for
all my friends and had most of the forces availible at the time and
collected for all the armies (for example, I own all the armies on the lists
save for Tyranids which didn't exist ouside of Space Hulk at that time). I
own twenty Warlord Titians, Seven Phantoms, a Warlock, an literally
thousands of other minatures for all the armies, however I lack the newer
   I'm looking for some of the newer models on the net, however since I just
found out at my local hobby store that the game hasn't been produced for
over three years I am not likely to have those AA guns and cool air units
any time soon. Thanks though!

Harsh, my friend. Very harsh. Some advice on playing the newer versions
of Epic. Take aircraft and take AA guns. All armies in NetEpic have them
(except for the Tyranids and the Squats, they have good AA but don't have
aircraft) so they are well worth the purchase as they can protect your
forces from enemy aircraft as well as inflict impressive damage of their
own. The current version of NetEpic certainly provokes a combined arms

Depends which version of Epic you are actually playing. If you are playing
Space Marine/Titan Legions then no, the Thunderchicken is the only
transport of its kind (with the Tyranid's Harridan coming kinda close). If
you are playing NetEpic (or the horrendous Epic 40,000), then yes! The
Eldar have the Vampire transport which is kinda like the Eldar version of
the Thunderchicken.
