So after getting into Adepticus Titanicus and falling pretty hard for the system, I am slowly expanding my forces. I also realized that the plain sanded bases would be a shame, and after seeing folks work around the net decided to try and do my own take on detailed basing to really drive home how big they are.

Here are some of my current attempts. On the ones sanded I added the terrain effects, guardsmen etc on top, or pulled small parts of the basing off after the realization the plan sand would not look that interesting with such imposing models. With the bottom one, I am working straight onto the base before sanding and will be for all future purchases going forward.

Reaver, two ratlings holding a farmstead

Warhound, Rough ride scouts following the mighty machine, for a little while at least
Spoiler:


Acastus Knight, what tank traps
Spoiler:


Warlord, the Warhound wasn't quick enough today

On a side note, trying to track down some Marines for basing is proving a pain, they seem to go for silly money when in smaller lots, I suspect for the same reasons I want them, and I don't really want to pay for a huge army when all I want is basing materials. I continue to try however.

At some point I will move on to painting, with my Loyalist forces being Legio Solaria and my eldest lads traitors being a split of Mortis and the Tiger Claws.

As I do more I will share it in this thread in the future, so this is in effect a Titanicus Project thread going forward.

Cheers, and aye the system is a lot of fun, our first game took a while and we just had Knights and Warhounds, it was fun but it took a while. It wasn't till we added a Warlord and Reaver on either side in our second that we realized how much quicker it went when Warlords start blatting things off the board.

Overall it is a lot of fun mind, game flows really nicely... and although I understand they will add their own complications I do hope we eventually see ground forces to stand alongside them for that early 90s feel when I used to play what was then Space Marine nigh on weekly.

I would be very interested, send me a PM and I can see if there is anything I have you'd like to swap for or discuss other options.

Fun base work! Check Vangaurd Miniatures, particularly their Onslaught miniatures sub-brand, they've got not-space-marines (and most other 40k races) in 6mm for not too bad...

I used models from Thingiverse and a small resin 3D printer to sort out the bases for my Adeptus Titanicus models.
You can see the results in my Dakka Dakka Gallery.

This may be an option for you as well, if you have a friend who is willing to help you out.
