Painting is very nice and smooth, although a bit too gloss for my taste in Dire Avengers' blue and Striking Scorpions' green parts. What I don't like at all is the bases. They look very unfinished at the moment. Are you going to paint the sand?

The Dire avengers are especially nicely done.

The paint jobs are very well done.

But still, I would recommend to get a little more depth in your highlights. This is especially true for your avengers and your scorpions. At least 3 highlights in different colours would suit them well!

I get to use them quite often as my mates have got a 6ft by 12ft gaming board ( check out the Safe-house Games battle reports) and all of us have big army’s and super heavy's so we like to get in a really big game in every couple of months.:)

Fable
19-04-2011, 04:53
It's great seeing a Phantom with some paint on it. You're far further along than I, though I don't have as much time to work to clean it as I'd like. It's all a long haul process for me.

One word: Amazing!

You've managed to do a fantastic model justice. And I second self biased about the temptation to overdo patterns and runes on such a large model, you've kept it down to a good level where it complements the model instead of overwhelming it.

Fable
10-05-2011, 19:03
Very well done.

Our titans will look rather similar but the details will certainly set them apart. I guess that's inevitable since we both play as Ulthwe. I absolutely love the way you painted on those runes without totally overdoing it. I wish I were as far along as you were. I've got a long way to go with mine and not as much time as I'd like to do it. It truly is a gorgeous model and very impressive to see all painted up and based.

I do have a question for you though. You say you get your titan bases off ebay, but I couldn't find them. I'm really interested in the base on your new revenant.

Nice freehand.. small things here and there I would have done different (details on the rear of knees, gem coloring on wings, gunmetal on the missle pods etc. but hey its art right?)

Would have been cool to see the upper body of the defiler a bit more pasted as it was stepped on .. know what I mean?

But all in all I love the freehand. Takes balls to pull that on a 700+ buck model.

You got 2 reavers as well? The coffers are deep my son!

Haywiregrenade
19-08-2011, 08:06
I was asked to compile my thoughts on this fella, so here I am.

The black is incredibly smooth, while normally huge swathes of black on vehicles can look flat and lifeless, somehow this just does not.
The bone 'tattoo'ing' and runes really make this model from something that could appear very black and white into something very pleasing to the eye indeed, and its just the right amount. You could have easily gone OTT on it, but no you got the balance right.
I am jealous of your gem work.

There are some areas that could be detailed a little more, but often less is more, so its not a crit.
The areas painted in teh copper/brass such as the missiles, back of knees, weapon ribbing and detailing could do with soem more depth and highlights. Not sure if the photo washes any of that out.
Some fo the grey lining, which is clearly extensive and took forever to complete is not fully consistant all the way round. I think it could also benefit with some highlighting at the corners/changes in direction with a slightly lighter line maybe.
I would love to have seen the right foot toe and heel positioned to really look like its crunching that Defiler, so more in a pincer kind of shape. The toe is too forward to be completely perfect.

I am also jealous of your speed to finish it! Mine is still in pieces as I work on each section and its quite demoralising sometimes to see it like that each night.

Lots of positives and my crits are only minor that still do not detract from the overall presentation. Plus the photos are pretty cool!

I am jealous of your budget. 2 Reavers and a Phant? You rob banks or win lotteries for a living?!

Okay, so you have two revenants, a phantom and two reaver titans ?? Are you a millionaire or just the luckiest guy in the world ?? No seriously your titans look great, but the phantom is a real gem! I love your simple clean execution, the paintjob does the model justice. Very well done! :chrome:

Awesome stuff! I like the dedicated template rack on the wall. I notice it's the biiiiig pie-plate that's getting an outing. Always fun to plonk that bad boy down (okay, maybe not for the person on the receiving end).
