Epic Armageddon (Epic or EA), Battlefleet Gothic (BFG), and Aeronautica Imperialis (AI), are all closely related systems that overlap in terms of players and miniatures used. Thus resources for all these systems are grouped here for convenience.

All three games are based in Games Workshops 40K universe but expand the scope beyond the basic 40k game. BFG involves battles between fleets of spacecraft and AI involves dogfights between aircraft. Epic involves battles which include all arms in the 40k universe - infantry, tanks, artillery, superheavy vehicles, Titans, aircraft, and support from orbiting spacecraft. Rules tend to be more detailed, 'realistic' and broader in tactical scope than basic 40K.

BFG and AI models are used in Epic, and Epic models are used in AI. Both Epic and AI use 6-8mm scale figures, and BFG an even smaller scale.

Another good site with various Epic armies and excellent scenery:

Also has a little 40k, necromunda, warmachine and some general hobby opinion pieces.

Dropship UK- more excellent articles on Epic (the cityscape article is a must see!) and some BFG and 40k content as well:

Campaign rules, based on the Warhammer Fantasy Battle Lustria supplement rules (played them using WFB and they were good 'uns).
