New to 3D printing, and first thought is wow the reaver is a lot of separate parts to print. May have to do various sections in bulk.

Edit: Skipped the test cube, first print attempt is a block of 9 of the carapace guns. Omnissiah bless the Photon Mono, please!

Depending on the size of the print bed/plate you can fit a bunch of parts on each plate, think of like sprue, so for example you could potentially get all or most of the weapons on one plate, body parts on another and so on.

Do you play 30k? It'd be a lot cooler if you did.

Every since I first came across them in a small blurb in the old Titan Legions rulebook back in the...90's (?)...I've wanted to paint up some Legio Destructor Titans.

But, while we know what the Legion badge looks like, we have never been shown their color scheme - and to the best of my knowledge, it hasn't been described anywhere either.

Any takes on what it should look like?

The are the "Steel Beasts", and have become somewhat "Orky" over time, so maybe something metallic and...green?

Also, how would you suggest running them with the 'create your own legion' rules?

Something favoring melee, shorter range and high rate of fire weapons?

Any and all thoughts appreciated!

A full Precept maniple on the right, a full axiom on the left, and a base Myrmadon in the center. Plus what looks to be 2 full households. Very nice.

Edit: @Alpharius it looks like the Legio Metalica rules will be in the Loyalist Compendium, since they are on the cover and it includes a number of legios sufficient to cover all the current Loyalist Legios with rules plus one extra.

Good point - I'd forgotten that we're getting two new books soon - a loyalist and a chaos one!...

Maybe Legio Destructor will be in there too?

The Iron Skulls are a classic, of course, but I'm holding out hope for the Beasts of Steel too!

I was happy about that with legio venator (no known paint scheme) and the second I chose them they get rules lol and a paint scheme

The custom legio rules from ryza are pretty great and very flexible, you could def mix a couple traits and a couple pieces of choice wargear to make something close range with a high rate of fire.





Tiger Eyes vs Iron Spiders 1800pts. Very fun game, my buddy painted up Iben Faruk and he did not disappoint, his squadron took my warlord. For the firs time ever we saw some terrible luck see a titan lose its voids entirely turn one, it didn't end well for that reaver. The other tiger eyes reaver however, the dual close combat monster ended up taking out 3 of my titans over the course of the game. Both our banners of knights were just absolutely obliterated, his from a single lucky plasma blastgun shot and mine also died to a plasma blastgun one shotting them. One of my reavers ended up having to kick his way through the train to get to the objective and luckily didn't suffer any damage in doing so. In the end the tiger eyes won it, having tabled me entirely and holding 2 objectives, one of which was vital. Iben Faruk thankfully didn't survive.

People have been asking about the train, there are some on ebay now https://www.ebay.ca/itm/GDT-Heresy-Train-Terrain-for-8-10mm-Games-like-Titanicus-or-Epic-3d-Printed/353373983648?hash=item5246bb13a0:g:30YAAOSw6K1gGNS~

Don't have any pics of the build but it was 3d printed by a friend. Can be acquired here https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/game/6-8mm-lucifer-pattern-overlord-goliath-warmech

I'm planning on trying to print one myself tomorrow. I can take some pictures. And hope it works. Still pretty iffy when it comes to doing my own supports, vs the presupported files of the Grimdark Terrain I have been printing

You're welcome, it's always nice to be able to easily tell two titans in apart, the lucius warhound has been a godsend for me, always worried I'm moving pips on the wrong warhound terminal.

I believe the file has supports, could be wrong. the nice thing about assembly is the body and legs comprise fewer parts than you'd think. Was easier than building a reaver that's for sure.

The file was modified to bring it in line with possible legal issues, so now the parts fit to a mars pattern reaver from gw https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/game/6-8mm-lucifer-pattern-pillager-warmech-armor-conversion?fbclid=IwAR2AxhvYa1lxt6jqaUVOy1frzGR3aXnYTQ5VhrnwLVGdWaW5TH71kdoQwFk

Just received the alternate Acastus weapons from Vanguard, beautifully cast resin. Assembly is going to be... complicated, since it's going to require cutting the existing weaponry to fit (I was hoping this would replace some of the parts in the Acastus kit, not require cutting).

First attempt at printing the warlord didn't go too great. Detail is a bit fuzzy, and I need to learn how to support better. Anyone happen to have a presupported version?

So here is the news (sorry for the bad picture quality):


I assembled a second set of Acastus, with the alternate weapons by Vanguard. I magnetized them, but I've not yet magnetized the parts I removed (I suspect I have enough default configuration Acastus Porphoryons already).

I also started printing the Grimdark Terrain Heresy Train. First print was a mess, probably due to bad settings on my side. The second one worked like a charm. More wagons + tracks coming soon!

Next on the assembly line are the various Cerastus-class knights.

Nice, a lot of the grimdark terrain pairs up really well with the gw stuff. I wanna try doing a partially elevated platform for the train but magnetize the bridge sections. Probably just have the train like hanging off a broken section. The acastus are looking cool, maybe just field one at first

What colour you thinking of painting your train Corwin?

Most of my terrain has been primed grey and will end up in various grey shades, so I was thinking to have a more vibrant color for the engine of the train (the wagons will probably stay metallic), perhaps dark red.

Some transfers always help make it pop.







Got another aquarium castle, wanted to make use of some of the bits I had left over. Pretty happy with how it turned out, I've always like the retrofit look and this is basically knight world terrain more or less. Still gotta get it primed. I put some random guns on it to make it match with the previous conversions, also put a vulcan megabolter turret for good meassure. The bridge part sort of stopped abruptly so I put something that would look like a crane. Also there was a gap in the bottom so installed a gate of sorts so it looks like foot access to the fortress.

For printing ? I increased exposure time since I changed resin and the new one has a longer recommended exposure time (my fault, didn't read the side of the bottle), and I installed an electric heater in the basement room where I print (it was a bit cold and the printer warned me).

My buddy's warlord "the king in yellow"

Took a frame from the end of the movie enemy mine and photoshoped in some titans.

We've been anxiously awaiting corrupted/chaos titan rules but as they have yet to come out we plan on running a psi-titan vs psi-titan battle where one of them is basically counting as a corrupted titan, in this case my buddy's warlord. Fluff I wrote has it basically striding out of the sea and attacking coastal imperial outposts in a form of ritual slaughter, always returning into the sea and stalked by thousands of birds who conceal of from air attack and fly in the pattern of a chaos rune.

This is more of an origin picture, prelude to a chaos cults ritual sacrifice before the corrupted titan's princeps embarks to war.
