Thanks my friend. I have a long way to catch up to you though.

Here is some finished Nid pics. The Sporemines are all green stuff. The pics are brighter than the actual models. Basing still in progress.

Ah. Another long night, but I was determined to finish my 2 Armies. Basing is complete on my Nids. Necron Army is repainted. Just need a bit warmer weather and I'll sealcoat everything and start figuring out how it all gets packed.

With that complete, I started unpacking the Warlord. Tomorrow I'll start cleaning off the mold release and resin nubs. I've got two different heads so I might use the original head as a trophy for the powerfist. A Shakespeare 'poor Yourick' moment.

She's affectionately known as Gwendolyn. And yes there is a back story of which Gits is probably the only one who knows.

She however needs a proper High Gothic name. So I introduce the Name The Warlord contest officially open.

1. Must not be pornographic or sexually offensive.
2. Must only be two words
3. Must sound High Gothic. Provide the intended English translation.
4. I will pickmy top choices for a vote.
5 . You can enter as many times as you want, however first come first serve.
6. All entries must be submitted before she is finished. (Painting included). She needs to commissioned before Adepticon.
7. And most importantly... Be worthy of a God Machine.
The winner will get a prize (Beyond naming rights).

I’ll kick off the name game.

Sol Invictus. Literal translation is the unconquered sun. There is some Roman god background there, and is the patron saint of soldiers.

Vae Victis. Literal is woe of the conquered. It refers an idea in line with “no quarter given nor expected” and is in line with a total victory.

Looking forward to the weekend. Ordered magnets for the body and arms. I have some tight tolerances for the weapon mounts. Hopefully the drilling goes smoothly. I'll only get one shot at it so if I crack or break the resin I'll be screwed.

One of the more difficult parts to building the Warlord is the leg pose. It has to be stable and level to support the torso. I've elected to do so without a base like WM's Warlord. ( They are meant to be in the same legion ).

More pics coming. All great name suggestions by the way!!

Progress. Was the most nerve-racking day. So far putting the legs together was I believe the most difficult part. With getting the right pose, making sure it is all level, kit that comes with lots of parts and making sure that the glue holds, dries in the right position made for a long night.

Here is my progress. The torso isn't attached yet just resting for overall looks.

More work on the legs. The JB weld didn't hold on one side, so I took the opportunity to reposition a bit. Re-glued. Hopefully it will hold.

Started to dry fit all the carapace bits and found a lot of warp in spots. So I spent a lot of time heating and refitting parts. I think I got it to where I can start assembling, but I need to wait till I get my magnet order.

Started assembling weapons, I'll have available Plasma, Volcano cannon, Apoc missile launchers, and a powerfist for each arm. I'm going to try and make the left powerfist holding the head of another Warlord Titan. I plan on using the Lucius- alpha pattern head, so I have the Mars one to use. I'll have to add cabling and trailing wires to look like it was ripped off. Such grand plans.

In preparation for the head in hand look I dry pinned all the finger joints so they all articulate. This way I can get the arm in the right position and put the Mars head where it will make the best look, then positionings the individual fingers to enclose.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Since the Warlord will be mostly black and white, I'll go with a red for the Mars head. Draw the eye.

Yeah most all the leg parts will be pinned. Work is making it difficult to enjoy this build. I still have 10 weekends though. Started priming and roughing in the colors on the weapons.

Speaking of magnets - but not of Warlord titans - is there any chance you could show how you magnetised one of your Contemptors?

I've got one I'm hoping to do this with this year, but have zero experience using magnets thus far.
