The bases look like a great start, if they're anything like the previous ones you've done I can't wait to see them done!

The water effects is something I'm keen on seeing, bases with water are always something I'd like to try.

I know you're all over Titanicus now, but I loved seeing the True Scale stuff; especially next to the more normal sized Perry models. Genuinely grand, top quids, next round on me.

Thanks mate! Worry not, they aren't forgotten though it might take me a while to get back in that business. Titans have indeed elbowed their way to the top of the queue, but I'd reckon I'll get them done (for the time being) before Christmas and can then also expand the XIV a bit. I've gotten a bunch of badly mauled Rhinos that await rescuing, either to more battlefield taxis for the upcoming Destroyers or as Scorpius artillery, and have been eying some terminator legs for more beefy characters like Blightspawns or Biologists. In this case they'll of course be the more unhinged parts of the Destroyer corps more than crazed demonological alchemists, but for the opposition the result is still the same.

Now if we could only get phosphex in 40k...

Third night, sadly fatigue hits in and I must concede: the three others aren't going to get their chrome legs before Saturday. Bugger. Well, they're table-able at this point so bleh, legs, transfers and weathering shall wait till next week.

Raaah! Fifth session has been finished and they are done! Done I say! ... done I say and retreat to the corner muttering about how the scroll work remains undone until the blighters have earned them on the battlefield and how the water effect is still going to dry transparent and get higher sprays to show the mass of the engine and...

Bah! Pretty much done anyway to the point where I am damn satisfied with them and the fact I'm still not a shaking, nervous wreck after all that trim.

So, joining Warlord Iudex Ultionis, the just and all-powerful Judge of Vengeance, we have:

Edax Rerum, Devourer of All like time itself.
Occisor Spesi, the unescapable Murderer of Hope.
Echo Dolorum, the Echo of Sorrows that rings over the land.
Cineres Immensi, the Vast Ashes are all that remain from those who dared to oppose their doom.

AT train has no brakes, now it's time to get a legal maniple, so... Reaver time! Ruina Superborum, Fall of the Haughty, shall be the first with its double fists to give a little shakeup to the roster.

Thanks!

Second session with the Reaver, mainly detailing the metal skeleton and plotting where some colours should go (as well as trying to avoid having to start with the trims...). I think this blighter should have some checkers on its knee, possibly on the shoulder shield too. We'll see where the inspiration goes when I get that far.

Oh yeah, just four sessions and this cute little murder-machine is done!

Ruina Superborum, Fall of the Haughty, joins its kin at the front, ready to RIP AND TEAR! I didn't bother magnetizing the arms, as one just has to have at least one dedicated double fister in the force. Carapace weapon is swappable, though, if one would like to run something else than the one-shot wonder of overcompensation that is the Warp Missile there. Like the turbolasers, pretending like it's almost capable of shooting something.

Love your brown scheme, and warhounds are definitely my favorite of the AT sculpts. Awesomely enough you're headed toward just about the only maniple I'm interested in running, including the double fists

Great work all around, I'm content to live through your tinyhammer escapades

Cheers, Boss!

I'm headed for all the maniples all day long, as I can run two or even three at the same time when I get these guys painted

My impulse buying trigger finger is itching, I don't really need a third Warlord right now, but the new one does hit the shelves before separate weapon sprues and I need plasma annihilators anyway...

Hm, some impromptu Death Guard started while watching the latest Titanicus stream. I found some extra Rhino sides from my piles and started fiddling with them. This might turn into a Plagueburst Crawler or a Scorpius, depending how it starts to form. Also, first time with larger plasticard bits. Never too late to learn.

Scorpius it is, then, as I found a nice looking megabolter bit to fiddle with. Add some miscellaneous stuff, a metric ton of boltheads and a nice crew diorama for the backfield and bam, steel rain inbound.

These knights join the queue of stuff that's ready to paint, finally. Also, is that a sneaky little deathmachine for the XIV I see there among the larger ones? Why yes, I finally got me a Leviathan to play with~ :3

The Leviathan is getting along nicely. Not sure if it needs something more, like cables. I quite like the sparse front and the backside is nicely packed as is. What's your opinion?

New year, new tricks... Testing out painting with very runny paints as my darker green decided to die, as well as wrangling with my angst about the riddle of steel. For some reason steel just doesn't look right to me if done with my crappy metallics, whereas I really like rich gold with real metallics. Eh, we'll see how it goes.

Small steps between real life, first arm getting there (minus weathering, chipping and transfers that get applied as a whole at the end).

And finally it's done! Feeling pretty good after this one, marks something of a milestone in my painting skills when comparing it to the Contemptor or previous DG fellas. Especially considering I had to emergency CPR all my green paints back to life from their dehydrated hibernation, which resulted in them being nearly useless puddles of water

Real life, why doeth you keep getting in the way of hobbying :/

Small teasers from the warp, however, as I got the idea stuck in my head about making a melee oriented counts-as force of worm riders ala Dune... We'll see how this develops.

Thanks, Boss

The plan is to make a bunch of worms in different shapes and sizes, convert a bunch of Epic miniatures clinging onto them and drive them closer to hit the enemy with their worms. Reaper's worms are roughly similar in size to Titanicus Warhounds, though slimmer, and my vision is to run these guys as very melee oriented Hounds, toting Inferno cannons all day long (ie. vomiting on things) and crashing against others like the maveriks they are.

If I find properly large ones, they'll sport spotters on their backs for artillery that hangs further back (as Carapace guns are obligatory for bigger classes).

Of course Doom of Molech teases some rules for great beasts to throw dirt in my gears, gah

Are you saying you're looking for more, bigger purple worms?? Pretty sure I've tracked some of these down before, but here's some options:
