Lovely and efficient conversion, are they Mk II lightning claws?


Plastic cataphractii ones from the BaC set, they fit in pretty much perfectly without any major surgery and the hanging pterugii help to convey their slow and ponderous motion (one has to be careful though, so they'll align with the rest of the figure's motion). Should be more visible when they'll get their bases and some paint.

Next up though, gonna start the first Warlord. That is some sweet kit.

Got my GME yesterday, and it is outstanding. Started with warlord and knights, implanting magnets all around. Actually, big guy looks great with Turbo Lasers! And the elbow can be made movable quite easy.
The only controversy is arm magnets soket place at the shoulder - elbow would do far better, since you would not have to re-make the whole arm for each weapon. Probably, my second warlord will be modifided this way.

With any luck, the entire GME set will be finished by next weekend, in time to order a Reaver or two.

As for the magnets at the shoulder, it's a more solid position than the elbow. Any additional weapons will come with the upper arm pieces anyway, and the arms are specific to one side of the titan anyway, so you don't lose any flexibility there. I suppose you could magnetise at the elbow, and also magnetise the armour plates over the arms, but ... any minor benefit doesn't outweigh the extra guddling about, IMO.

Yeah the Reaver has forced me to pick up my pace, I've nearly got my first Walord, completed then it's onto the next, it's coming out beautifully. I'm really happy with the colour scheme I've got, red white and gold.

I got my single warlord's skeleton built, magnetized, masked, undercoated, basecoated, and washed.

I just airbrushed the armour panels from the lower half, hopefully they can be trimmed, weathered, and attached in the next day or two.

I also have the chains and banner poll dangling from it's crotch, but no banner yet. Hopefully Legio Krytos will walk soon.

I want to buy 40k, but Gamesworkshop is doing their very best to push me away, and simply not buying their product won't tell them that.

I started painting the markers/tokens and arc measuring things last night. Got the basecoat of Leadbelcher on the markers and basecoat of Warplock Bronze on the arcs. Probably paying a little too much attention to these pieces, but I need something to work on to keep the AT-hype going while I figure out a color scheme for my knights and warlord.

Edit: Definitely going to throw a clear coat on all the pieces after completion. I've got a pot of the GW 'Ardcoat, but it's kind of glossy. If I dilute it with water a bit, will it be a bit less glossy? Or am I applying too much?

I'm now considering changing my plan - the second Warlord might now be a Loyalist machine (either Fire Wasps because that's the classic matchup or Warp Runners because they're cool, even without flames). A pair of Reavers in September and a pair of Warhounds in October will set me up nicely with an Axiom Maniple.

And Atarus Warlord is basicaly done. Some trimming and little fixing remains, but I am glad with it. The god-engine is ready for this week clash, and the only question left unsolved is the name. "Judex Furores", Furious Judge, or maybe "Bellator Aeternam", Eternal Warrior?

Just going through the assembly instructions for the buildings in the GME and it turns out they use exactly half of the sprues…
For anyone that bought the big Sector box, is there a different booklet with additional/different examples in it?

Nope, it is exactly the same booklet.

Don't hesitate checking the old Cities of Death codex, there are a few ideas that can be replicated.

A couple elements I created combining the new civitas imperialis, an old FW censorium and a few other items.

Lol and thanks

The "shopping mall" is actually the back of the cathedral's lowest level (not counting the polystyrene base). With a door opening up a couple of levels I thought it would be nice to add a terrace

Each "level" is an independent module so it can be rearranged.

Using civitas imperialis components goes very fast with huge footprint buildings.

Sure, one pic of the back without the polystyrene base, one with the base, the base and the various sub-modules (the tower is also in 3 independent parts). The polystyrene just happened to have that particular shape, a bit reminiscent of Japanese castles, probably more than 10 years that it was in my "bitz box".

That’s pretty awesome though I guess that big resin part helped a little :p seriously tho, nice job which I’m totally not stealing… except for the pyramid roof which is going on top of the ‘bell tower’ of my ‘Palace of Westminster’ when I get it finished.

Oh! How did you support those roof panels in the middle there?
Sprue or plasticard?

Thanks

Absolutely, it was also the perfect excuse to see how the old FW epic buildings fit with the new civitas imperialis. I believe they are just perfect. As resin is quite heavy and the roof tiles pretty light, best to add support underneath. It is ok on 2x2 footprints. Beware that depending on your choice of roof tiles, if not totally flat, the resin might not stand perfectly on top of them. I'll probably add a little base to elevate the resin tower and circumvent the problem.

Support for the roof panels in the middle is simply sprue. There are quite a few sprues layouts with an X, I found these perfect. I also clean the sprue so it is totally flat. The double and triple roof tiles can be easily cut into single ones which allows for more variations. I also used sprue for the smaller 2x2 roof, it is made of 4 single roof tiles, it helps avoid gaps.

ohh thats nice, I was doing Legio Atarus myself but over time the little tweeks and customizations I added to the paint scheme has resulted in a completely differnat custom Legio. I'll hopefully have a pic ready soon



BTW anyone done up custom transfers for any of the Legios yet?

We'll find out soon enough eh.

Nice to see things picking up a bit here, the FB group is getting a touch soul-destroying(insisting someone delete photos of their Titan because it had a single teeny wee 3d printed Deimos Rhino on the base as decoration... ).

I couldn't resist doing a touch of converting to my Warlord, the two images show the first stage with armour plating just tac'd on to check the "full stride" pose still let them all fit(they do, barely). Subsequently I decided to also modify the helmet, which now has some vertical "vents" in the faceplate, and the left shoulderpad, on which I've replaced the cog on the Opus Titanica with a shield & scroll heraldic device I can paint on top of. No pics of those yet.

Spoiler:




At the moment I'm waiting for supplies - my black spray is empty, and I want to try hitting the undercoated chassis with a solid gloss lacquer coat before I apply the metallic since I've read it can make metal acrylics "pop" a bit more, so I'm waiting for cans of all that, and I have a second box of Knights on the way(I'd planned to wait on those, but I borked my initial attempt to cast up some extra battle cannons by assembling the one from my first box before I thought to mold it; this time I'll do the individual parts) along with the big terrain box.

I'll say this though - there are times I envy the folk who don't have any particular affinity for the lore, it must be so much easier to not feel compelled to spend whole weekends researching Sassanid Persia to help construct background for your Knight Household. Just for example...

I need to acquire plastic Skavenslaves, can you help?

Excellent work on the buildings, Mendi.

There's a great one on the AT Facebook group right now of two buildings linked by a sky bridge.

...and excellent posing on that Warlord, Yodhrin! The forward stride really animates the model.

Thanks a lot

Curious to see it, could you post it here? I have yet to succumb to the sirens of FB (yep, I am truly a dinosaur in this regard).

A sky bridge is definitely on my to do list. I have quite a few other ideas but I'll have to pause for a couple of days.

It is extremely cool to see all the other great projects here, it is quite emulating.

Ard coat is a gloss varnish, you need a matt varnish from army painter/Vajello or a spray matt varnish like GWs purity seal

Got my magnets, but probably no other work will be done until September. About a dozen guys in my club in Uxbridge it seems. I will be using my old metal forumware warlords, reaver and warhounds until i can get the newer ones into service.

Tonight I ran our club's inaugural AT game. Lots of fun was had as a five-player co-op zombie Knight hunt turned into a desperate knife fight when two of the Warlords declared for the Warmaster! Two Warlords got completely obliterated, two were crippled and one was badly damaged. The loyalists carried the day but at great cost and with heavy hearts - the Horus Heresy has begun!

a low chance I know but has anyone done custom transfer sheets for any of the various other Legios?

Or simply knows a good place to get some hereldric type decals the right size for the tilting shield?
