The Irn Bru signs are genius, and the freehand on them is excellent. You should do some "House Barr" gangers to go along with it.

Decided to just use prit stick to stick the print outs to the plastic as the colour was running when I used PVA glue. It has the text "F**K Taco Bell, eat a Rat Burger!" but you can't see it on that bill board :/ I've done some more posters for the painted Admin building but I'm struggling to get the pictures off my phone (computer says no)

A new bill board anyway. It's still WIP but it's a far bit larger and has some gubbinz on the base (to weigh it down more than anything!)




The board is starting to come together now. I just need to stop doing 'details' and actually get some buildings finished

Cor blimey, that's a good idea! They'd be more 'industrial workers' and admin staff........... Like guilders? I could do that....... Well. I could do a gang for every building on the board. Warehouse staff, Irn Bru staff, Admin Staff, Taxi drivers, Soylent green workers....... and so on. LOOK WHAT YOU'VE STARTED!!!!

Well.. So, Necromunda and the board has been put on hold for a little while due to be being distracted by tiny titans. God knows why I haven't got into this game before...... but hey, I'm here now. I must say, these models are fantastically detailed, they're easy to build and a joy to paint.... I just wish there was Orks!!

First up is two Warhounds. I'm going to add some weathering to the feet once I do the bases. However I'll do the bases along with the other titans in the maniple (2 Reavers and 1 Warlord). Well..... that's what's currently built. I have after the maniple 2 Warlords, 1 Nemesis, 6 Reavers and 6 Warhounds in boxes to get cracking through.

Some WIP shots of my Reavers. They look pretty messy at the moment and I'm not sure I like the purple.... It's a bit Tron like and I'm not overly fond of harsh highlights..... So they might well get toned down with a wash at some point. I'll wait until the Gold is done first before I make that call though.

Now that I've done some other colours the purple doesn't stand out so much. I think the gold draws attention away from it and makes the highlights seem less 'harsh'. Either way, I'm much happier with them now than I was!!

I did say that I don't paint quickly, didn't I? Because I've been painting these all week. It's taken me 6-8 hours just to tidy up the trim and paint the gold..... but they are almost done! Just have to highlight the black, do the copper tubing, lenses and random little details and bits that I haven't worked out how to paint yet.







Due to needing something easy to dabble on to give my eyes a rest I've been working on this wee chap. No idea what he's for yet as he certainly wont be painted in the White/Purple scheme. If anyone was wondering if the Vanguard Terrain turrets scaled right for AT reavers, well, they do. I converted one up to be a Plasma Blast gun purely because a mate of mine wondered about them.

Great conversion and lovely paintwork as usual. Like you I am not captain-rapid when it comes to getting painting done. But that does mean the quality is better than it'd be if we rushed? I think thats a passable excuse...

So nice to see that old skeleton warrior shield boss. God that takes me back...

Thanks Malika, are the turrets your design?

OSJC, Yeah, that's my excuse as well lol. To be honest, its more an issue of 'quality time'. Usually I've been looking after my son so if I want to paint it usually has to be something I can stop pretty quickly or only have one eye on. However he's at school now so my days off during the week are now just me on my tod, so I can actually commit to a painting process that isn't dry brush and wash lol.

Those shields sprues have been kicking about in my tool box (odd place I know) for about 20 years I think. Jesus...... I'm old.

I used my last bunch of those on a lotd MK1 rhino conversion and the Gothic ruins sprue I did. Hell, must have been around about '97...

That was a lot of hair ago...

Absolutely love this thread. Love the purple and white on that titan. And your yellow on the trucks and pit slaves is great.

Also if out is gonna survive into the 41st millennium it would definitely be Irn Bru.

OSJC: I really try not to think that I've had models sitting about waiting to be painted for longer than some people I work with have been alive

Olthannon: Thanks!!

Malika: Oh ok, they looked like your work!! I hope so, and I hope they get more back in stock! I'd really digging that scenery line but it's all out of stock!

Ben did the plastic scenery. Ive designed a whole bunch of small bits and bobs which sadly enough haven't been released yet. Holodesks, cogitators, etc.

Right, it's been a while since I did any meaningful painting but I've managed to get the two Reavers ' almost done' (yeah, ok, I need to actually do the guns). I haven't done the writing yet and I'm still deciding on names. (Weapons and names are tomorrows/Friday's job). The pictures turned out rubbish and these are the best of the blurry bunch so I'll take some decent pictures tomorrow when the scripture is done.... but you get the idea.







I also decided on a colour scheme for my Blackshield Reaver. I'm some sort of masochist it seems when it comes to choosing colour schemes apparently... Still a long way to go but I'm getting there.

As promised, some less blurry pics and the reavers now have names!! Been ages since I did script work. I am both appalled at how rusty I've become but also happy with the results..... is that normal?

Beautiful work on these miniature stompy boys. Love the colour schemes and how neat the metallic trims are...I just know my hands would be awful at trying to keep those clean!

The script work looks unreal to me, as does the little ferrari badge...and the checks on the blackshield reaver! Keep it up mate, excited to see them based and ready for the table!

This is all soo good. Loving your dedication to the little details of world building. You're making something really unique and fun. I'd love to bring my Necromunda gangs for a battle in your underhive but I'd be afraid they're never want to leave.

Also loving your two tone Titan so far. He's going to be a beauty.

Thanks guys! All I see in these photo's is my mistakes but I'm glad you like them

I put 2 watered down washes of Sepia over the yellow and it has toned it down a fair deal. However the camera still loves brightening it up and dulling down the red.... So I've giving up trying to sort that out! She's finished, well, apart for some minor details that I've just noticed. The car on the base isn't painted nor is it even stuck on!



I started work on some scenery (buildings, roads and hills). Nothing too fancy. the buildings will have bases and I need to make some more road sections as well but its enough for a 4x4 board..

Me: I'm not going to spend too much time on scenery...
Also Me: Spends 2 hours painting Nuka Cola signs....

I also picked up some little Z guage railway cars and trucks to give a sense of scale.....





The trucks and cars scale pretty well I think. Maybe not perfect but they'll do. I've finsihed the White and Purple Reavers/Warhounds and I'm just finishing off their bases. So expect pictures of those tomorrow

Anyway, as promised some based Titans! Although I feel they're a bit monotone and boring. Do you think I should add something to them? If so, what?

Easily achieved! They're fantastic models!!

I have started the Warlord. God this thing is a beast in terms of detail. I spent about 5 hours blending the White from Ulthuan grey to pure skull white but the pics make it look like it's just been sprayed white lol. Oh well..... The pictures are more to prove I've actually been working on something

Oh, and some Reaver weapons snuck into the picture there as well. So there's proof I have actually finished something else. (please excuse the messy paint station!)

They look brilliant together! So clean and crisp, well done.

With bases, I think it's hard to break them up because the things you would usually use to do that - flock/static grass/skulls/weapons/etc are all out of scale...

Maybe a few grey rocks in with the brown?

The white on the warlord does look super neat - but anyone who's tried to paint white over black before knows the struggle!
Speaking of scale, the train line was a great idea! really hits home the message of stompy stompy death taking place above.

Thanks guys. Yeah, maybe to clean and crisp? I dunno. I kinda like them being clean. As for the sheild boss. Those things have been sitting about in with my tools for god knows how long.... 2 decades maybe? lol. About time they got put to use


Todays mission completed! The purple is done. Again it looks a little Tron like but I'm hoping, as before, the gold trim will calm it down. Tomorrows job is the black although it will probably take me tomorrow and the day after :(




Oh, any ideas on what colour to do the little shields on his shoulders? I'm kinda at a loss. and where do you put your Legio symbol??? There's not many flat surfaces for decals.

Well, turns out the black only took me about 4hours to do so I got that done in a day. The gold on the other hand is proving to be much more of a job that I had thought it would be. Still, the gold is almost done!!

A few questions. There's a band around the main vents/exhausts on the top/rear. Should they be gold?







Another plug for Vanguard miniatures (I should start charging them really). I picked these flak guns up on the off chance they'd work on the strategum bases...

   
Made in gb

I finished the gold and started the silver (it's just leadbelcher). I did get the little shields done although I'm still deciding on heraldry for the other pad.






I grabbed a couple of Warlords off ebay and I just realised one of them was a bit damaged and had dents in the armour and rivets were worn off in placed. Which sucks and I have no idea which person I bought which one from! So I decided to just make another force of titans! I'll do a 1500pt force of the yellow and Red/black checked Titans. I had intended for him to be charging forward about to shoulder barge something but I messed the pose and he's a bit too hunched over I think. I doubt I'll be able to pull him apart to fix him now so he is how he is!! I also went and removed every imperial eagle as well (you'd be surprised how many there are). Battle damage and additional armour plates to come!

I had a day off and managed some 'me time' (which is immensely rare now I'm back at work) and got the silver done and started doing some detail work! Eyes/lenses. Pipes. Neatening up. That sort of thing. There's still loads to do. I even had a crack at some glowy plasma effect on the Vents but not sure I'm happy with it to be honest with you.





I also started painting my 'other' warlord. The Yellow is just washes, two highlights and then more washes but I think it might need some more washes to darken it down. Again I tried some glow effect on the vents but I think I'm gonna need some more practice at this to get it looking good. I'll be cracking on with the diamond pattern on my next day off.

Oh, I need a name. Maybe Sordidum Senem? (Dirty old Man)

Right. I managed a day off and got some basing done. As well as making some little Cacti out of green stuff and paper clips. I' rather proud of them






I also started on the Diamond pattern. Still loads to do but the basic pattern is almost done.



   
Made in gb

I was co chuffed I went and made some more

Added another Cactus to the Warlords and a Reavers base. I guess I'll be making quite a few of these now. Do you guys use Flock on your bases? It's hard to scale I guess but I'd like some dry shrub on there to add some colour/detail. Any ideas?




Due to having left over green stuff and a long memory. I went ahead and made some 2nd Edition inspired green balls with red spikes! (is anyone old enough to remember them?) Oh, I also finished blacking out the Diamond pattern so now I just needs highlighting.
