Nice work man, I love the paint job!

Are those all Armorcast Titans or did you make them yourself.

Cheers,

Nick.

They are all Armorcast.

I picked up the Revenent and the Loyalist Reaver about 12 years ago from Mike Biasi, and grabbed the other 2 off of ebay last month. They have all been stripped and repainted from scratch in the last few months.

Nothing motivates like the mere hint of having GW rules to use with these fellows.

Say bigred- how did you strip the resin, may i ask? Doesn't Simple Green dissolve that stuff?

To reitterate the above statemaents, I was certain that was the same Epic mini I have sitting to my right. That is beautiful.

Hey Savnock,

"Striped" is maybe the wrong term. These titans are pretty large, and have a slightly textured surface due to the nature of the resin. I use a fine sandpaper and some selective scraping with an exacto blade to get rid of any existing brushstrokes or obvious "painting" marks, then I go over the entire thing with some of the new foundation paints.

It works like a charm, and one thin coat later, the original paintjob is gone.

In the interest of keeping my threads coherant, I will go ahead and use this one moving forward as the general "Bigred's projects Thread".

Today we have my newest addition to my Pre-Heresy Death Guard Army:

Hi everybody,

I finished up my Captain Garro in preparation for the upcoming Pre-Heresy League.
