Hello all,

I have recently started scratch building a reaver class titan and was wondering about such things as how to effectively detail it. As you see I have already done some detailing.

Here are some pics of my work so far!

I finished the main body and had some time to work of the head/neck. Not quite sure I like the top of the head but we'll see about that later.

Also added some skulls to the shoulders, I plan to add wings to those later.

Okay, I have since mostly finished the titan so I will post WIP pics and comments about it till I get up to date.

Here I have added some edging on the shoulders as well as the titan symbol on one shoulder and wings to the skulls.

At this point I have finished the other shoulder and added the legion symbol to it for my legion of choice: Legio Metalica
Also, after test fitting the carapace armor and looking at some reaver pics I decided the shoulders were too low. So took off the shoulders and put a spacer on one of them to get a feel for how it would look, I think it came out pretty good myself.
Raised armor plates visible to right of the shoulder to cover up a terrible looking foam board and hot glue menagerie.

That's quite the undertaking. Are you doing this on the fly, or working from plans?

As far as detailing goes, you might want to pick up some terrain kits from GWS - things like the Manufactorum and stuff would be useful, I bet.

OK, I have had time on my hands to really sit down and work on the titan. I have added the carapace armor as well as improved the head.

All thats left for the carapace is some detailing to cover up the horrendous hot glue, and some imperial eagles, titan/mechanicus symbols.

Any ways some pics

Looking good, so far! Though I think the head is a tad big.

Here is my latest work, an inferno cannon, honor banner(more of those planned), missile launcher, and some detailing such as the Aquilla behind the head.
I will continue to improve the head as I am not happy with it just yet.

Behold the mighty Ardentes Dolorum of the Legio Metalica!

Ok, I have decided to forgo the rivets on this titan, so I decided to paint it up. working on a power fist for the other arm.

After it tipped over and fell causing minor damage, I redid some parts (Waist, hips, etc.) I decided to mount it on a base.

Looking very impressive. Could we see some scale shots with minis?


And yes, I also think the head is too big, when you compare the head to body ratio on forgeworld and prior Reavers.

I'll post some scale pics soon
Anyways the powerfist is almost done, just need to put on three more fingers and detail it a bit. I put lightning claws on the powerfist and posed it appropriately for a metallica, er metalica titan

Looking very impressive. I think the missiles will really bring it together nicely.

I'll be honest here. I wasn't seeing it until you had it painted. WOW! Great work! I can't wait to see your missiles added.

Well done.

Hand all done, added a tree to support the front end of the titan because of some weakness in the ankles and knees.
