Itty bitty marines found on thingiverse and printed and painted as scale aids. Could have done better print jobs I suppose, and the failure rate was enormous (out of 90 marines, I think maybe a dozen or so usable). But they didn't take long to print, and didn't take much material.

Ah, little marines are just what you need to put things in perspective!

Can you imagine what would happen if FW released titan hunter infantry models - we'd all lose our minds!

I shudder at the thought of doing a company of Iron Warriors in that scale. I'm not fond of stripe work at the best of times.

Or for those of us without hands steady enough for a brush, mine have gotten worse.

It's not always this bad and it's worse when I'm trying to squeeze something but you can see it here:

To be truthful, a decent brush makes it much easier to do fine freehand lines. The key is to get decent flow (a little dishsoap or flow improver) for very fine lines, and to wick off excess on some tissue before putting brush to model. Then start at the centres of lines and broaden them to even them up.

A pen has one thickness of stroke, and thats it. If you wobble, the whole line wobbles. With a brush if you wobble, the tip should actually dampen it.

As for hand shakes; desk height and a tripod stance (wrists touching) is key I found (I'm a bit shaky myself at times). With your elbows on the desk your hands should be comfortably at just about face height with your wrists touching and your posture reasonably upright.

Well! Thats just plain wrong because Bob always taught us to beat the devil out of our brushes!

Actually, that might explain why the paint always ends up on everything else but the miniatures....

There'd be a lot of stripes I guess, but I actually find doing lines at that scale easier. The small scale stuff it's less of an issue if you are a tiny bit off, but on the big scale lines of larger models if you're a tiny amount off it's really noticeable.

D-day stripes on WW2 aircraft are my nightmare, I never get them right.

Quite agree FrozenDwarf. The Questoris - expensive as they already were - have gone up to £25. That does bring them inline with AI...but still.

Tired of doing up Qs so it'll be just the upgrade kit for now. Will be casting more of the rocket pods because although I need nine pods, I would have very little use for the rest of the bits on the sprue.

Still, its what we've been asking for and now its here so we can put it behind us. Going forward, it would be nice if FW released new rules for the Thunderstrike and Chainsword, and to release the missing Cerastus weapons also.

In other news I've got my old Nexus 7 working again, so I might develop a terminal app as I don't want to fork out for more terminals.

The gauntlet and the sword already have rules, they are just the same on this scale as they should be. Same with Cerastus swords and fists.

That is a shame.

We personally house rule it to +1 strength for the gauntlet and rending trait for the chainsword. That said I never had the pleasure of Knights in regular 40K; was there any difference there or once again merely cosmetic?

Gauntlet and chainswords work differently on 40k knights.

Mein Gott! Progress! On the loyalist side, at least.

Still need to do highlights and details. Not going to win any Golden Demons (do they still have those?), but they should look OK on the table.

Also some semi-relevant boardgame shenanigans. (See captions.)

Warlord next (and a selection of weapons - these are all magnetised), then varnishes, decals, chipping and weathering on everything. Still a ways to go.

Those are some bloody lovely titans Winterdyne - some of the nicest I have seen actually. Love the touch of the little marines running around the feet.

Usable for Epic rather than AT, just a few pics of an old later-edition Gargant that I picked up 2nd hand. It was already pretty well painted so it just needed some touching up and weathering (rust effects and dirt)

I loved those Pacific. I got the great gargant to turn into a Dredd, 15 years ago.

You could maybe use it as a stomps in AT?

Reskin the current rules with pro units and have at it.

Whipping up some rocket pods from scratch. The upgrades are decent enough, but I'd only be using the pods and the rest of the sprues will be going to waste. Wayland aren't stocking them so I just can't be bothered to have the local store order them and muck about.

folks, any suggestions for sites selling IG infantry/vehicles proxies for base decoration? scale match is important.
whitout it these titans just looks like normal 40k dreadnoughts and knights to my eyes.
been trying to google myself but whenever i am lucky to come aross an 8mm range that is still for sale, the models dont look like anything that could pass for IG.

3d printing is out of the question.

Dropzone resistance troops, but I think they might be slightly taller than the old epic 40K troops.

You could also use downed Aeronautica aircraft and assets to help emphasise the scale if not.

You're looking at a wrong scale, since AT isn't 8 mm but heroic 6 mm. Vanguard does pretty good metal guardsmen, if Ebaying old Epic stuff isn't doing it for you.

gw long time ago confirmed AT is 8mm scale just as AI is, why should i then not search for 8mm figs?

Mostly because when comparing the actual AT titans with the old Epic infantry the doors and such are exactly in-scale.
