Those cacti are fantastic! A lot less fiddly-looking than similar-scaled trees, but very good for creating an idea of scale!

Ok, Finally, FINALLY finished this diamond pattern. I had to correct it in places. Mainly the left front shoulder armour as the pattern curved all over the place. I'm pretty much happy with him how he is although he lacks any sort of markings at the moment.





I also finished all the painting on the White Warlord. Kinda happy with the freehand diamonds and symbols but the colours seem to blend into one. I should jabe gone with a plain red background. Anyway It's just Decals and.......






....... Because Painting white and Diamond patterns wasn't punishing myself. Banners!! This will be for the Warlord (between his legs.)

Took me a minute to pick out the red and black diamonds under the shading and weathering, great job.

Warlords are really coming along, props on all the laborious flourishes. I love the pose on the diamond lad, strong imposing momentum (and sweet loadout, from an outsider's perspective).

Thanks guys I hope you've all had a nice, relaxing and productive Christmas!

I saw a starter on eBay for a steal (a 3rd of RRP!) and couldn't resist. All the titans/knights were prebuilt and either sprayed silver or part painted but, hey, I'm still happy The Reaver isn't posed exactly how I imaged him but that's mainly due to not being able to pull it apart at the hip joints. Oh well. It''ll do!! He'll be joining the Yellow and Diamond pattern Legio.




Warhound on the base is just done with some quick press mould. Right, off to spray him!!

cor, thats a great pose with the wrecked warhound. thanks for prooving me wrong about that. I think its because the interaction between the two is simply foot on top that stops it being a cheese fest and more of a sense of context...

and lols with the cacti. never did like those but they do evoke pleasant nostalgia none the less...

Thanks guys!

The pose is a little off to be honest. I wanted him more crouched and leaning to the left (his left), almost like he was using the warhound as a platform to push off from into another opponent. But he kinda ended up standing on the Warhound like a Trophy. I still like the pose though, even if it isn't as dynamic as I envisioned.

Yeah. I'm really regretting doing a diamond pattern. It was ok on one, lone titan. But a whole force of them? Dammit. Why can't I choose an easy scheme like Ryza or something?!

I do need a name for him/her though. Any ideas? I have a name for the Warhound already; Trux animalis (Filthy Animal). The other Reaver is Ferrum Meretrix (Iron Whore). So I need something of similar vein. Plus the Warlord as well for that matter. I never did decide for him.

I've been told to isolate due to Covid, so, I've managed to get some painting done Just the yellow on 2 titans but, hey, give me a chance. It's a start!

Sordidum Senem (Dirty Old Man)



Trux Animalis (Filthy Animal)




How about Mors Spei (Death of Hope) for the Warlord? It's a bit grander compared to the rest of the Titans but Warlords are supposed to be incredibly rare in this run down legio.

I like the proposed name. Suitably grand, and fitting in the circumstances. Beautiful work on the Titans, in a scale I am still amazed we have seen a return to by GW!

I know!! I'm so glad they did. Even though I was never really into EPIC I still had a decent enough collection. Sadly gone now though (much gutted). I love painting at this scale though, I'm not sure I can go back to painting my Knights after this. They seem so flat and boring.

I need some ideas. To fill out these guys to 1500pts I can either add another Warhound. Or an Acastus Knight, 2 Lancers or 3 or 4 Questoris Knights. The problem is, these guys aren't really supported by anyone (they're not Imperial nor support the Warmaster and their Planet is no more). So trying to justify some Knights is a bit hard to do. So maybe some Proxy models to represent Knights? Or a Big Tank to represent an Acastus?

These are very dynamic for such lumbering god machines. The yellow is fantastic, almost like a dancing flame or daemon possession. Can I ask for the recipe? I love that the reaver is stood on a warhound like a stag it’s just shot!

Thanks Mr Savage! I do hate static poses and did want to give them a sense of 'weight'. Although I'm pretty sure the War Lord would fall over IRL.

Thanks mate! The yellow is old GW Sunburst Yellow. I'm not sure what the new GW colour is but any decent GW staffer could tell you but there's got to be a converter around somewhere on the internet. After that, then it's 2 thinned coats of seraphim Sepia, then Seraphim again but in certain places that took my fancy. The again washed in certain placed (the darker patches) with Agrax Earthshade. All of these washes (bar the first one) were done with the previous wash still semi-wet so they kinda naturally blended together.

To highlight was just Sunburst yellow again, Then Sunburst mixed with white to highlight up.

No idea how I have missed your excellent foray into Adeptus Titanicus, your Warlord's, Reavers and Warhounds all look great. I really like the Purple, white and gold scheme. Are either of them named Legio's or are they homebrew?

I agree on how detailed and addictive the kits are, my personal favourite is the Reaver kit. Looking forward to more progress.

These are fantastic, very colourful. The red-spiked cacti are a good way to add a spot colour and add a nice retro touch as well (I built some 40K scale versions myself a couple of years ago). According to Dakkadakka's own paint converter chart, Sunburst Yellow is equivalent to GW Flash Gitz Yellow, VGC Sunblast Yellow, Coat D'arms Sun Yellow or INSTAR Brilliant Yellow.

Welcome to the thread And thank you! Both of the Legio's are my own creation. I suck at choosing names however so neither of them are named as yet. The White/Purple ones I'll be using the Crusade rules for and the yellow ones I'm undecided. I wanted to have them as blackshields but the rules for Urdesh fit so well.

I honestly don't think I have a favourite. They're all awesome.

Thanks mate!! You're showing your age remembering them But, yeah, splash colours are always good. Even though they're done the same green as the vents/eyes on the titans!! Thanks for basically doing my job on the paint front as well lol. Any links for those plants you did?

To be fair I can't claim to be that venerable, since I only know about some of the old 40K stuff from the internet.

The plants were very basic, but since you asked, here is a WIP and here is the finished article.

Ouch....... That was below the belt Those plants are cool. although you need to go a lot brighter than that

No worries Gobert!!! I still have 3 pots of Sunburst in the old Hexagonal pots lol. I have no idea why......... I never paint anything yellow so cant see myself buying 3 pots, ever.

Not much of an update I'm afraid.

I had a spare Quake Cannon knocking about so figured I'd add it to the yellow Warlord. However, to fit their theme I wanted a combat attachment I mean, a Bayonet longer than a Leman Russ is a thing, right?



I also made and painted some more weapons for the Reavers AND added a Vulcan Mega Bolter to the back of the Warlords Power fist because, maybe, one day they might make rules for it?

Looking cracking, and in terms of justifying the conversion "maybe, one day they might make rules for it?" is perfectly sound reasoning!

Well, funny you should say that because there are rules I can kinda use as a 'counts as'. Basically it turns his base attacks from D3 into D6. Which is cool.

Finally, finally finished the white Warlord

I tried a new technique with the plasma coils. I like it but it doesn't look anything like the tutorial. Hopefully by the time I've painted the other 5 Sunfury Annihilators and the 8 Warhound Plasma guns I'll be better at it

Thanks guys! Despite taking about 5 times longer on the white Titans i do really like the Gritty Yellow ones as well. Which is annoying lol. Maybe I'll add a few more titans to them? Although I might wait and see what other titans they release first. I'm definitely thinking of another Reaver though.

Heh, if you want an Eco Warrior I might as well make an Angry Greta at 8mm scale?

I've not had much time to myself this last week so I haven't been able to spend any 'decent' time hobby-ing. Despite this I still had the itch to apply paint to something! ANYTHING! so I went and worked on some tiny buildings. I actually had quite a bit of fun painting these up despite them just being Grey dry brushes. I still have some roads to paint and the 'flat top' building WILL have a statue on it when I can source an old 2nd Edition Marine from somewhere.






The details on the front of the ruins are just Imperial Knight icons.
