I glued the main weapons and their armour panels to the torso and that to the hips/legs. I used liquid mask on that assembly after each armour panel colour.
I left all the other armour panels and trim seperate to avoid masking and super glued them on after painting the trim by brush.


I just sprayed one, torso glued to the legs and weapons separate. I’ll see how that goes tonight when I get home, it should cured by then but it was really hot and humid out so I hope the primer went on okay.

Btw I checked your blog in your sig, are you still playing your Iyanden in 8th edition? I just bought two of the Apoc Eldar boxes so I have like 30 Wraithguard and 4 Wraithlords to assemble and wanted to know what to do with them in 8th.

I'm considering picking up the Acastus kit with the idea of converting them into Asterius. Omnissiah knows when they'll release a conversion kit or a new plastic kit for them.

Although there are differences between the FW models, the main points of differentiation are the arms and shoulders. I think I can fabricate the arms, and convert the beamers from the beamers from the old chaos heavy weapons sprue. Finding the right shoulder armor will be the trick. The SM Centurion pads might be a good starting point.

Edit: The Contemptor beamer bit is another obvious option, but I have a feeling they'll be too large. They also aren't cheap, LOL.

I'm saying that mine are conversion beamers and just painting them with a different colored glow.

Built the body and will leave the cannons for later. Heres some hurdles I faced just case its useful to others...

The leg pipes are super-fragile and snapped one. Managed to glue good-as-new. The leg assembly has slight shades of the Reaver legs, but certainly not as bad.

Was confused as to which was the lascannons and autocannons, but the forgeworld instructions for the larger version clarified that - parts 20 and 21 are the lascannons...

Part 31 is the Ironstorm missile pod and part 30 is the Mortar battery...

The Cerastus Lancer is still my favourite model to work on, but the Acastus is a very close second. Along with the remaining three Qs, it was great to see the second battlegroup finally fleshed out. Just in time for August too!

I do still play my Iyanden army and still go wraith heavy. However, I don't play enough and not seriously enough to be in a position to give useful advice.
I'm more into painting and building these days, so I don't really consider an army list when I start to assemble, build and paint stuff. It's more a hoarding instinct. Kinda like shoes and handbags for the fairer sex.
It all started innocently enough with a brush and other hand tools, moved to electrical stuff like airbrush, heatgun and dremel, now too machines like resin and fdm printers (for my own parts) and a laser cutter.

Just realised one can make two Icarus carapace weapons from the leftover Autocannons on the Acastus sprues.

Cool, I do the same but we only have an FDM printer at work. I'd love to get a Photon for little detailed parts so I need to make a convincing case to our budgeters.

I just finished my 4th Titan. I would post pics, but I don't know how to do that.

I'm doing 2 legios. Mortis and what is supposed to be Tempestus. My daughter loves blue, but doesn't like the check pattern, so they are just blue and silver.

Ok just figured out how to attach pics. Sorry for the bad quality and terrible paint job, but really wanted to post, so there they are.

They look fine, just hit the recesses with a wash and run a quick highlight on your metal trim. The fancier you try to make highlights at AT scale the more garish they look unless you’re one of those damn talented people I envy who know what they’re doing.

I know, I can't stand talented people. I'm not jealous or anything. You know, just a little covetous of their clearly undeserved awesomeness.

I do need to do that, when I get the courage. I just don't want to mess up.

The funny thing is, I had no intention of getting into Titanicus. I told a friend that I always meant to get the original Reaver Titan from epic before GW dropped it and that the new one was even better. A few days later, I'm building my first Titan and planning two 2000pt armies.

Thanks SamusDrake: I know they don't look like they have any shading, but they do. They do look a bit better in person. I remember being told that if you can do a tidy paint job, then you're doing well.

Ordered me a third Reaver. And it didn't cost me anything, because I got a £100 Amazon voucher from work.

Was going to order more, but fell into a blackhole of 90's action films on Amazon Prime, and spent most of it.

Anyone for Broken Arrow? You bring the popcorn!

Also. This. This, this, this.

Learn how to use washes for line work.

A simple, neat three colour paintjob, with a bit of brown wash in panel gaps and that works wonders. Remember, the aim isn't just to look pretty, but for your opponent to be able to spot what's what (so yes, painting Heavy Stubbers on Knights Bronze, and calling them all meltaguns is totally fair game).

I love my 90's action flicks, me!

Brings me up to 3 Warlords, 3 Reavers, 4 Warhounds and a load of various Knights.

I may round things off, in terms of 'look at me, I can field any maniple' next month.

Hope it's ok to ask this here. I tried asking in background, but didn't have much luck.

I'm doing Morbidia Knights for my Mortis Legio, but have no idea what Knight Household to do for Tempestus. Morbidia is red and gold, so want something completely different for my other knights. To go with Tempestus.

Any ideas?

Question guys... Is this a good deal? Its actually fairly local so shipping isn't bad and it would essentially double what the wife and I own.

The battle groups are like $140 on Amazon IIRC and do you need more rules? I know where I can download the rules as a pdf to my iPad since I already own a copy of the hardback which is more convenient considering the spine broke within a month. Note: I’m a librarian so I know how to treat hardbacks.

If you’re hoping to rope someone else in, it’s not a bad deal.

But if you don’t need the rules? Not so much?

Well right now the wife and I own one Titan Group each... so playable, but inflexible maniple-wise. Also the extra rules would be nice for not having to share assets, and having the extra set of mission cards for secret missions.

I just didn't know if it was an absolutely crazy deal, or just a good one. Thanks!

Edit: Same seller relisted it for cheaper... feel like I should pull the trigger. Even my FLGS with their wink-wink extra savings on GW doesn't discount that much. :-p https://www.ebay.com/itm/223600502009 I can't decide!!! I both don't want to go in this hard on a new game all at once, but I hate passing up opportunities.

Just know that if I didn't have enough titans to start a third legio I'd have already bought it and ended your deliberations.
