just a quick update... spent some time getting some smaller bits used to connect stuff painted and ready for the next bit. Need to work on torso...together before I connect it to the waist.

Good colour scheme on the legs. Is that an old Eldar pirate model from the Rogue Trader era?

I have color on all but the small bits and the head. The head is requiring extra time and Green-stuff to make right. The Eldar Fig is RT era... as is 75% of my Eldar force ...including all the original box set of Harlequins (I purchased myself back in the day lol). I will post some of my figs in future updates to the titian.
The old "mac" eheheh...is a PRE-MAC... its an apple Lisa... appled learned alot about gui on that machine heheh.
As far as color goes... the knees are to be gold (painted those this weekend). I have all the parts up to the waist base painted with some washes/inking done for the start. I want to work my way up from this point completing the legs and then moving on to the waist-midsection-chest. With all the bits that go on in that area its gunna take a week. Not sure if I will put on the jump boosters and side sheilding until I get the arms ready to mount.

Loving it, it looks spectacular! Can you tell me what colours you used to do the metallic finish? In particular I am very envious of the main "black" style that you have going with that kit.

Thanks

I second the what did you use for the main body color question, the black sparkle looks decent, almost like nailpolish, but then it looks like it went on too evenly for that and without much gloss

Very nice paintjob. It actually IMO at least that its been sprayed just as you would a car, the paint is very even

Wow, the glitter paint is actually quite cool! :p

I can't believe you have a lisa, that thing is ancient. Well, it's older than me, I hope I didn't just insult any sensitive warseers...sorry if I did!

-peace out

the main color is from KRYLON "Mystique" tm... "color2color" and I used the Blue/Purple kit. ... I found it at my local "fred meyer" its a chain here in oregon.. northwest area... associated with Kroger.

The rest are hobby store spray paint the gold I had to brush over with brown inks...and gw golds to get the look right.

Anyhow - the lisa... orignal owner gave it to me.. .my high school friends father. eheheh.

I took a bit of a break on this... been fussing with some rare earth magnets. I snapped these shots last night... remembering its been abit since I updated. I have used the magents to attach the head (so its pose-able) and the back spine for travel. I am trying to work out magnets for the arm guns.

Lovely looking work :D Nice, bright colours, very well applied.

Not too sure about the pose though....

Torg_OR
25-06-2007, 20:33
The pose is one of my irritations... I used magnets to hold on arms... and some other parts and really was difficult finding room to drill and glue. Also..I had intended for it to lean a bit back... but found that when complete its so top heavy...that it would not balance well. In the end the pose came out of a need to keep the center weight over the slender legs and very minimal molded space at the waist to be strong for play.

The arms...if I could have added different rare earth magnets (along with locking pins) I would have like a bit different. But after its all said and done I think the pose is as good as I could get - given the limitations with the mold..as well as balance and strength. If I was to build it again (or if it somehow came apart in the right places ) I would probably opt for stronger wire and armature ...for a more dynamic pose. Again hard to do if you want to use it in a few games each year.

-thanks for the comment tho... right on the mark as far as what I was dissapointed with also.

Maybe a bigger base would help.. i mean is it me or does it seem to small?

i agree with smokedog there. ntm i heard the best tactic with the titan is to ''tank shock'' units off the board... which a bigger base would help do...

anyway it looks great! small base or not.

Torg_OR
26-06-2007, 02:15
oh yes...the base is rather small... a friend made it for me. Its a section of molded street... and then he used a circle cutter to cut it out for me. It was the biggest size he could do. BUT, I have thought of creating a slightly bigger scene base that this would sit into... how big should a titan base be??

thanks for the comments!

go to this (http://belloflostsouls.blogspot.com/) site. between all of them they have half a dozen titans. I dont know how big their bases are but everyone on that site has a warseer name so you could ask them...

Smokedog
26-06-2007, 10:43
I think it shuold haev 12" base persoanlly.... i think that is the size of the titans' bases on the other pics...

Torg_OR
26-06-2007, 14:57
I have been a big fan of "bell of lost souls" site for awhile. I will ask bigred over there and see. I had looked at their older revenant along side the bigger imperial titan and noticed that the reverant base was a bit smaller. I looked around at other sites last night and saw a few reference 6" dia bases. My base only measures 4.5" dia. (I feel so inadiquate now :) lol). I will look at what I can do to modify my current base out to at a minimum of 6-8 inches dia.

Hey Torg_OR,

Just peeking in here ;)

I have standarized my bases to 2 sizes to balance between gameplay-purposes (where you want the base small enough to move around terrain, but big enough to tankshock the heck out of things, and block LoS nicely) and modeling purposes (I want the base to solidly anchor the model so its not easily knocked over).

8" diameter bases for scout titans (warhounds, revenants, etc)
12" diameter bases for battle titans (reavers)

I've never seen a Warlord or Phantom in person, but they must be pushing 14-16" bases easily.

I would go to a hobby store (like Hobby Lobby or Michaels) and pick up a 8" round plaque, spray and laqueur it in an attractive shade, then centermount your existing base on it with 3 woodscrews going down through your base into the plaque (then do minor touchups on the base to hide the screwheads).

It will give you the extra gameplay diameter, and help with the tipping problems you may have. Looking at the pics of your beauty, I would be terrified of taking that to a store. It looks VERY topheavy.

You can easily fix your current base to a larger one without any major dramas.

Torg_OR
10-07-2007, 02:55
done... at least done for now... I need to get a bunch of other things done for a big battle in a month. Anyhow... its really done. I need to attach the current base onto a larger (8" dia) base later for display. Currently I am working on the carring case. For now tho its on to other Eldar force projects to fill out my 3500pt share of the battle that awaits this titan.. (along with a minimum of 3 warhounds that will oppose it).

after I get the carring case done I plan to take it to my office and shoot some photos under correct lighting... that should be by the end of this month.

Wow, great job, I'm really impressed, especially by your use of the metallics.
Often the use of those colors ends up with a model that just screams: carnivale bumbercars.

Great job, love the work.

This has to be the best painted revenant I've ever seen. Beautifully painted, smooth finish and a very tastefully picked colour scheme... most of all I would like to say well done with the metallic finish... I've always found those metallic colours really comicy (from my days of playing/painting space hulk and advanced heroquest) but you've pulled it off with a rare finesse. Kinda makes it look like star-metal (if such a thing existed).

I had seen the fist Revenant before, but had forgotten how amazing it looks.

Good to see you working on another one. I really like the Drop Pod base, it gives the Revenant a very dynamic look.

Looking forward to more!

This is the first time i've seen the log and i'm blown away by your first Titan. The first few pics were not that good and i was afraid this was just another idiot messing up his much to expensive Titan :eyebrows:, but in the other pics it became clear that this thing is freaking awesome! :eek:
The colours work very nice together and i love the Harlequin style shoulderpad. Did you use some sort of flaked paint for the armour to make it all shiny and sparkling or is it a metallic paint?
Second titan is looking good also, although i'm not sure about the Drop Pod just yet. Keep up the excelent work.

Aegius
09-04-2009, 11:01
OK. After seeing such inspiring pictures, I'm regretting getting rid of my revenant. I love the poses, especially the new one on the drop pod. I found that it was a horrible model to pose and to store, so I got rid of mine. You've shown me that there is potential.

Torg_OR
09-04-2009, 15:33
@Spekkiebig: The Drop Pod is by request of the patron (its a commission job)... I wasn't sure about it going in... but I did what I could to make it work. Also, the paint is a metallic paint - found in auto parts stores these days - I think its a product of krylon - I would have to check again. Anyhow its a two part metallic spray paint. It changes reflection color with the light - from reddish- to purple - to bluish... I thought it was a nice effect for an Eldar Titan.

@ Aegius: yeah these guys are a pain to pose - and to store to take for a game. You have to pin them well - and the use of strong magnets are a great way to protect the breaking points as well. Both of these have used magnets to make them easier to deal with.
