Time for some more terrain it seems.

I built a bunch of stuff maybe a year ago at the club, but didn't find time to paint them until now. Still a bit of a rush job, but works pretty well I think. It was also really fun to try using posters, weathering those was simply delightful.

Arska and Pera for scale, taking you on the tourist trip to our friendly local bunker tour which just might end up at an angry caretaker's face. And at the wrong end of an assault cannon, whoops.

Been a while since I posted here, but this week saw some more building going on. I was bummed about my lacking collection of fortifications and siege equipment, so after a small rummage in the kitchen I discovered that some dairy products came in very handily scaled packages. I had also been wondering for some time how to incorporate insulin tubes somewhere, as they make pretty rad artillery pieces, so...

Today I got the turrets of the famed Arla pattern painted

Then, to the bunkers!

Thanks Kid

Recycling is the word of the day, 'innit? Helps with the trash, saves the planet and allows one to buy more plastic crack later on... #TitanicusHype

To the bunkers, then! Test piece C3 is done and while I might still add water lines or dead vegetation in flock form over it in the future, it is now sufficiently good looking to get on the table this weekend. Only problem is painting five more like it before Saturday

Hum dum.

It is funny how the greatest urge to fiddle with things comes when one cannot do so. Here I am at CERN for the whole summer and my modeling projects languish at home on the other side of the continent, bwah! Well, at least I have time to think about what I want to do when I get back to the frozen wastelands of Finland from this horrid heat.

Destroyers! The current Death Guard codex for 40k let's plague marines go pretty nuts with weapon customisation, so obviously I also need pure melee loadouts with axes, chainswords, picks, maces, scythes and what not, supported by alchemical flamethrowers and phosphe... I mean biochemical grenade volleys from hell. I've been thinking about mk III armour for those troops, as it was the thickest and most protective choice when boarding or assaulting entrenched positions.

Here's some sketches on the look I'll be going for.

Hello Dakka, long summer no see. It was exciting to work at CERN but boy is it nice to be back at home again, away from the constant 30 C heat. And at my work table!

Having barely gotten out of the plane, I went and dropped all the cash to get Adeptus Titanicus GME. Gimme dem sweet God-Machines, yo, I need them yesterday! So that'll take over this blog for a while.

I'm going for a sinister, archaic legio with autumnal colours. Lots of browns, red and bonelike parchments. The first Warlord is a bit regal, whereas the second will be a walking ossuary that instills mortals with an acute sense of their passing insignificance.

Also, I might have made mistakes in my life. I started doing the titans' metals with NMM out of the blue without prior experience... This may get weird.

Ho boy, it's time: Legio Favilla walks! Tremble before the Ashen Gods!

Finally the first titan is done. Well, in the sense that it's reasonably table-ready and I should get the others to the same point before spending yet more hours on freehanding the banners and so forth. I'm reasonably pleased with the NMM for a first try, the rest should be quicker now that I actually have an idea about what the hell I'm doing.

Some knights next, then, got to get things ready for a game in ten days

Thanks! I had fun trying to evoke that baroque blend of red and browns, heavy shadows and stark metals with a reasonably limited palette.

Also, bases might just be the best thing about this scale, really let's one to have small dioramas there.

Cracking scheme and excellent execution, as you say that red and brown almost reaching black at points is really fitting for the Titans. The broken pavement, building and figures for scale are brilliant as well. Have you got a Warlord lined up and any intention of getting some Warhounds?

Yeah, the second Warlord and six knights are primed and waiting for the weekend. There's also three Reavers in their boxes, not yet built, and I'm going to order at least four Warhounds in a few days. It's nice to have a game with so few models yet enough variety to still carry itself ruleswise.

Well blimey if it isn't time to base some titans instead of being productive.
