Army Spotlight: Marten's 90 point Epirians


Posted on Wednesday Dec 14, 2022 at 05:00pm in Models


Epirian forces cut a distinctive figure on the table, with their militia forces backed up by a range of specialised robot troops. This week, we're sharing a look at a small Epirian force put together a while back by Marten, one of the members of our Maelstrom's Edge development team.




Built to fit on the table in 90 points for the V1 rules, Marten's force leans heavily into the various bot options. Contractors are all well and good, but accompanying them with chaingun-equipped support bots is even better!


Contractors wisely ensconced in cover.


Fireflies are comparatively fragile compared to most other Epirian bots, but are superb when you need to get some firepower across the battlefield in a hurry.

Spider Drones are handy for decimating enemy troops, coming equipped with twin machine guns or flakk guns, and also excel at digging into cover to avoid enemy fire.


A unit of Spider Drones with their Apprentice Handler move up the centre under the watchful targeting lens of a Scarecrow bot.


A Scarecrow Sniper is a much more fearsome presence than its gangly frame might imply, capable of pummeling the toughest enemies at range with its shoulder mounted Maglock Railgun, or repelling closer foes with clingfire or chemical spray.


A second Scarecrow Sniper stands overwatch at the rear of the deployment.




To get started on your own army of robotic doom you can pick up these models, or any of the rest of the Epirian range from the webstore here.
