Late to the party, but the Adeptus Titanicus stuff is looking great also


Thanks! Yeah that diorama is probably gonna be the smallest thing I will work on for quite some time, titanicus seems huge in comparison!

Spoiler:


I always liked how GW ignored the standard giant robot conventions in Epic and would like to see more the funky ones.


Oh the grub one is on the list for sure! There are some really weird designs that I can't wait to try out.

I've had a bit of a cold (just a cold, promise!) for the last few days so haven't achieved much but I did manage to get another knight painted up..





For basing I caught inspiration from listening to the War of the Worlds musical (as one does when painting giant robots), following the Martians invasion of Earth, a red weed starts to grow over every surface, could look really cool if I can pull it off.

Given that red roots everywhere would clash horribly with the green knights I could instead go for a more classical overgrown city look, trees growing out of buildings, cracked and split pavements with the earth bursting through, even flowers being crushed under the feet of titans!

Horizon Zero Dawn (which incidentally also involves huge robots) had some great examples of cities that nature had reclaimed. I think it could be a pretty original take on a 40K setting...



Anyway, gotta wait till I have some actual terrain to show up before I can get too involved in basing and buildings so I'll keep working on the knights until then!

Thanks for stopping by, hope everyone is staying indoors and keeping safe

Nice progress on the big stumpy robots (who have been shrunk down to tiny tiny sizes ). I think the one your trying to figure out just needs really long legs. Have him two to three times as tall as the other titans and the wire thin aspect will be found in his scale to height.

Another source for pictures of overgrown buildings is the Netflix show the 100. Not really focused on that, but there are some spots where you see buildings with trees growing out of them.

Well because of that I might just have to make a knight modelled after Jar Jar now and you guys have no one to blame but yourselves!



I have been busy with online classes at the moment but I just had to make a post showing off what arrived in the mail today. I may have gone a little crazy with terrain....



I quickly whipped up a box with a roof on to show what the stuff will look like, lots more optional details to add though. I also have a few more bits and pieces on the way from Vanguard Miniatures such as lamps and bridge sections to add some more flair to everything.




Also got a few metal models which I was't expecting, look at this adorable little Yarrick!



He is the size of your average space marine's head so I have no idea how I am going to paint him but it seems like making tiny things is my speciality so I will give it a shot!

Hopefully this weekend I will get a good chunk of this stuff built up, it's going to keep me busy for sure...

That's a healthy dose of terrain you got there. Should make for a decent cityboard.

Mini-Yarrick needs to be on the shoulder of an Ork boss. "Carry me closer so I can ship his nose off..."



and no...you would have only yourself to blame, and the shame would follow you around for the rest of your life.....

So you’ve made a micro sized planet of sorcerers, now you’ll make a epic sized one. When do we start leveling New York so you can build a full scale one? Or should we go for Vegas because of the desert and sand.

I mean Cairo already has some decent pyramids for me to start off with, with a hefty enough bits box I am sure I could bring them up to scratch...


The box with a roof on has grown a little bit! The Troublemaker Games terrain is proving to be very fun to work with and there are so many possibilities I can think of. The parts have proven to be a little tricky to attach in a straight line due to the connectors only working when on a corner but I have found that using bits of sprue on the insides provides a good amount of structure to keep everything together.



The way I am constructing everything at the moment allows me to make it fairly modular and I am able to rearrange the pieces as I see fit. The only downside to this being that I cannot add as much detail to the sections, for example, the underside of the bridge would look excellent with some supports. I will stick with this method now so that I can try out lots of different combos to see what works best.

Now that's the kinda scale Titanicus terrain should have. Now also mix it with other bits, maybe even the GW kits and you can have something truly mind blowing!

Been working on a large entryway into the city, eventually it will be built up onto a couple of hills with roads going between the two. Still needs some details and balconies adding to spruce it up but I am liking the look of it so far.



Just to show how handy the modular aspect is, I can make things as big as I want fairly easily! Overkill maybe?

It is a really good kit, I prefer the city parts as they have more variety but combined they really turn into something special.


Speaking of city walls, I have made a little progress on the entrance to the city, my entire room is not full of little styrofoam balls which I will undoubtably be finding for many years to come. It is going to be way bigger than I planned as there are still two more levels that can be added to the top of the fortress wall but I am going to focus on the cliff faces at the moment. Might need to bring the cliffs in a little bit so that the warlord can fit through when he is on a base, I should probably also future-proof it for the inevitable Emperor Titan when that gets released!

Hey folks, sorry for the very long absence! I have finally graduated from police academy and am back home so now have plenty of time while I go job hunting.

For the last little while I have been pretty unmotivated with regards to all my projects so as we all know, the best cure for that is to buy more stuff right? I grabbed a few small decorative pieces to litter around some terrain along with some pilot figures all from Vanguard Miniatures.



I think I may try to start a little smaller in scale with my buildings to get the feel for them and actually finish something. With any luck I should have made some decent progress now that I have everything all set up on the desk now!

Thanks Syro, hopefully I don't get hired too soon, 12 hour shifts don't allow much time for hobbying!


Starting off with just a little update as it's a little dark to be taking decent pictures of all the buildings I'm working on. I made an anti aircraft knight as he was looking a little boring with no weird conversions or whacky guns.





The reaver was also asking for a nice new weapon so he got a nice new defence laser on the carapace. It looks a little odd at the moment bu I thing a cohesive paintjob will really tie it all together!



Currently working on making an aircraft hangar for a couple of bombers I bought, hopefully should have it all finished up soon for a real update for you guys...

Wow Cain!

Belated congratulations on finishing Tizca.

What an absolutely monumental undertaking and a breathtaking end result.

So much time, effort and patience has been poure into this project - you must feel so proud!

The water turned out amazing, and with the close up photos I am just blown away by the contrast in texture, colour and scale you managed to pull off working with such tiny materials (toothbrush bristles!!!!!).

I think the lighthouse is my single favourite building of the bunch; though the revolving restaurant is close.

Great work mate. Well done and thank you so much for sharing!

In other news, the knights are looking fantastic. I really love how you're bringing some of the more characterful epic sculpts to life.

I love the pale colour scheme and am excited by the idea of red martian weeds growing all over the bases.

Can't wait to see what you do with the terrain either.

Cheers!

Thanks very much Tzurk! Glad you liked it all, can't wait till I have enough time to start another big project like that in the future.

Happy 2021 everybody! With the reveal of the new Warmaster Titan I was inspired to pull out the old box of knight bits and continue making some weird and wonderful models based on the old school designs.

This guy is based off the ones at the bottom of this handy illustration I found the other day.



It is clearly designed to be a very fast, scout type knight so I gave it just the one top mounted weapon and some sharp talons for legs. Pretty happy with how it turned out, the lack of arms really helps set it apart from the other ones I have made so far.





Having completed this one, the only remaining knight (that I am aware of) from the original Epic 40k roster that I have yet to build is the very squat one with legs that are mounted above its arms which I have been saving till last as I am not quite sure how to approach it or if I even have the bits that I need. That being said I will do my best to get something whipped up soon!
