I really like the kit-bashed Ordinatus. Is the gun a weapon from Titanicus?

Thanks!

For the most part, it's built on top of a Reaver's Volcano cannon arm. The spike is a roof spire, though

It's great to see some more 'epic' scaled stuff, I'm really enjoying the battle reports!

Thanks fingol23

On Epic ffront, I tried to rescue some slightly badly printed Thanatars by swapping in some Leviathan arms (they got robo fists and antipersonnel dakka with belt-feeds, why not).

Trying out washer bases, the print supports can be handily used to cover the hole as well as provide a nice direction for the basing style

Cheers youws, they're getting together now that I finally received my Vanguard infantry as well.

Started to repair some armless Castellax with clipped up servitors, because this makes sense at 6 mm

Word

After assembling about 9000 points worth of stuff I find that damn this army requires a lot of techpriests. I've got like 20 stands of them and it's barely enough. Damn robots and your non-sentient AI's, always bonking to walls and walking into chasms if left unsupervised!

Nice save on the Castellax. And funny about the Techpriests, in 40k everyone is complaining that you get too much with all the Mechanicum bundles and in Epic one really needs them

Thanks. Yeah, that's true: unlike 40k where they are cool models you don't really need, here they are essential but cheap workers that make the world go 'round while the robots take care of the business. Funny how that works


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Right, so here's about 9000 points before I start putting on the basing splodges.















Add a box or two of Aeronautica fliers and it's a nice, round 10k of stuff that can ally as much again in titans from Favilla as needed

Quick update on the basing front, the force is soon ready to get basecoated

Did some work with profound meaning, aka switched some AI fighters to older AI bases (the new ones are unsightly large to my taste) while preserving the number dials but making them otherwise prettier for Epic purposes. The newer flying stand was also a bit bigger than the old hole, requiring some slight surgery.



Given the Lightning box contains about a million missiles, I also bashed some AA autoturrets from surplus Warbringer shoulders:

Boy it's been a while but I've got my master's thesis written and the self-imposed miniature exile is over. Returning to the fray on the tall front, I went and started on something bigger for a change



I am going to be busting some heads with this hunk of resin if the blitheringly stupid DG restrictions for FW Legion units aren't FAQ'd post-haste, but first he'll have to get finished. So nice to build things again ^^

Screwed up a bit of one track because of a bloody wobbly gubbin at the front, fixed with liberal weathering. This baby will be muddy, alright.



The current 40k statline also incorporates a twin heavy bolter for some reason, so I bashed one up for the crew to shoot aspiring graffiti artists off the hull with.

Good to see you back! This is a very exciting, very chunky tank job. Looking forward to the next installment.

Thanks Don!

Funnily enough, the tank can also buy one extra gun (HB / MM bolter and so on) but there's really no good place for one after the pintle space is taken by the twin HB. I'm considering just building an extra crew member or a couple of tank riders who are just lounging around the top with big ass guns

Ok, that's a whole other scale Excited to see, how it develops.
And congrats on getting the thesis done and hopefully it returns with good marks on it!

I actually really like that idea - it's consistent with Death Guard character, right? These are a couple footsloggers with heavy weapons who jump on the back of a passing tank. And it would be pretty easy to make it modular, to pop on and off depending on the list.

Also, saw Viterbi's message and missed the bit about your MA - big congratulations! No small feet there (kind of a pun on yer tiny dreadnoughts but not a very good one)

Thanks guys, it should be in the Eximia / Laudatur range if my supervisors haven't been pulling a prank on me thus far so feeling pretty good about that.

And yeah, I think tank riders would be fine especially considering my main force is Captain-Commander Erasmus' third mechanized. I like the concept, given how wearing power armour allows you to clamp onto such machines and not die the moment it starts taking fire. Sadly Forge World was out of Fellblades at the moment, because I would totally have done a squad of hangers-on to commemorate the absolute brilliance of whoever it was that typed Fellblades as having a transport capacity of 25 in the Compendium, good grief

Plodding on with the Cerastoi, finally





Just transfers, battle damage and bases to go before these eight are set to get blasted to smithereens by annoyed titans!

Aaaaand 'ere we go, full tilt!



The pics ended a bit dark and thus way starker than they should, apologies for that, but boy am I glad they are finally done. The transformation from a bunch of base colours to damn fine when you get the trim done and some transfers on them for detail, m-mmh.

Painting train rolls on, today I started on the Epic Mechanicum with some Thanatars. Bases are 20 mm, for reference.








I now have huge robots, big robots and small robots in this scheme, soon also even smaller robots and infantry

Wondering about the bases, though. Should they get a bit of shrub like most others, be more rad-blasted or perhaps burned by the plasma mortars

Better pics were worth it. Need to show off those sweet bots. New guys look great. Burned out basing could look cool.

Thanks, youws

I kinda want to try it out on a few bases, even if the majority would get some shrubs on them to make them blend with the knights and titans on the off-chance they might be fielded all together in the future.

Maybe even burning shrubbery and 6 mm scale OSL tests if I'm feeling particularily masochistic one of these days...

Some even smaller bots today. The Thallaxii are starting to push the limits of where I could be arsed to paint armour trims

You know, this was one of those days I realize I am an idiot. Life tends to be easier when you use proper tools and taking pictures of very small models might work out better if using a macro objective in the camera. Derp.








Also, razorwire and dragon's teeth on sticks ready to be thrown around the field.

Cheers Viterbi!

I promise to paint some actually new models soon, but I had to take a few scale shots for a friend. Who knew, titans look like quite big machines when there's infantry around
