That's a stunning Reaver titan! Love the detail you've put into the cockpit and the other components.

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.


Just that? No blending? There's almost a brown hint to that red, do you shade it down?

I have a few pots of blood red left over. Even one in the old hexagonal pot! If you're desperate give me a PM

Thanks! Those interior details took forever to paint but was worth the effort in the end

Thanks! I'll keep your offer in mind. Been trying to use sparingly my last blood red - if I run out and need more I'll shoot you a PM.

The base colours on the reaver are all done via Airbrush. The colours I listed I sometimes mix - there's no science to it so unfortunately it's harder to write out but I will at times do a blend of red and black which gives more of a brown tone. I usually will shoot from dark to red until I 'feel' that it looks right.

That titan is a damn close to hobby perfection as a model can get. I shall continue to pore over the pics for many days.

Sidenote: the links to the 3d printing bit are broken for me - do you have an alternative source for us to look at?

Thanks for sharing - a truly awesome display/gaming/bragging model (it really can't be called a miniature can it)

Thanks! Haha good to hear you're getting a lot of time with the pics. Makes all the effort of painting and photography worth it.

My hosting site expired recently and I'm not bothered to renew so the pics are gone. However the 3d printed terrain can be viewed here 3d printed terrain https://imgur.com/gallery/bpjfHgX
