Thanks Luther! Been awhile and I’ve kept up to date with your paintings through FB. Your primaries stuff is fantastic though still a bit sad to see you’ve sold your BAs.

A quick update after my last Space Marine. In continuing with the larger model paint jobs I started priming my Reaver Titan! Had this sitting around assembled for a few years now! Everything is magnetized so I can paint in sub assemblies:


Whole thing took about 1.5 cans of rattle cans and quite a bit of airbrush primer to get a clear and even coat on all surfaces.

BA themed of course! Similar to my Lucius warhound. Red armor panels with yellow head though I haven't decided if I want to do any yellow strips or any other types of flourishes.

It's been awhile. Unfortunately there hasn't been much progress on the reaver other than a quick airbrush base coat and shade of BA red...


I was recently side tracked by a kick starter campaign for some 3d printed terrain here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/thedragonsrest/3d-printable-sci-fi-modular-outpost

Ended up backing the project and getting super pumped about creating awesome killteam/necromunda terrain...even though I've never played any of those games not to mention I didn't have a 3D printer at the time.

A week before the kickstarter ended I had a 3d printer ordered and shipped. Following it's arrival, I spend a considerable amount of time researching how to use it and work with 3d STL files. Once I had it setup and configured I felt like a techpriest enginseer with a load of STCs!

My printer has been running for the last 2 weeks 20+ hours a day. Some progress pics of what's been printed so far:





Great thing about these parts is that they use openlock compatible clips to lock each part together. They also support spherical magnets which basically allow you to join them together seamlessly like Lego! Below pic shows them with the magnet clips inserted (orange slots)

Thanks! Haha yes, I suspect they'll be a lot more popular at that point. Given how fast the industry has progressed within the last 5 years, I wouldn't be surprised if something like that was available within the next decade.

New year new Reaver Titan!

After a few more painting sessions over the Christmas holidays and the past few weekends, I finally finished off this gigantic model. Looking back in my email archives, I bought this back in 2013 and only assembled it last year and finally painted in the past 3 months. This reaver has been painted in as a Freeblade that's aligned with my BA chapter. Name on the carapace is simply Blood Angel (Sanguis Angelus) and is meant to blend in well with the rest of my army and the previous Lucius Warhound in my collection.

Overall the model got the full detailed paint treatment as I do with all my other models from interior and exterior. Almost all parts are fully magnetized so it can be completely disassembled and removed for inspection (including interior details and princeps and moderati). Weapon arms for this beast are dual laser blasters, gatling blaster and titan grade powerfist. I do have the chaiinfist on order and will add that once it comes.

Arms are all attached via screw and nut at the shoulders and then with larger magnets at the actual weapons. The power fist actually articulates are the wrist and elbow for posing (pointy fist!).

Onto the pics:

Everyday is a good day for a BA fan. Actually I'm not too thrilled about the Sanguinous model but hoping it will grow on me.

Just spotted this - that's a stunning Titan Eggroll. It may have taken 5 years to get around to it, but when it was finally finished it was worth the wait. Splendid!

Nice, should be a good gaming community in that area. You should definitely get back into it!

Thanks! My red has changed a lot over the years (due to paint range changes). Currently, and also for this Reaver, I used a basecoat primer black, airbrushed base of mephiston red and airbrushed highlight of evil sunz scarlet. I do have a small bit of GW Blood Red from way back in the day that I'm saving for just specific units - haven't been able to find a matching red since it's always been my favorite. Looking back to my earlier models, I do have a more brighter red for my paintjob now - been trying to push the contrast a bit more than my old work.
