Good day ladies and Gents and welcome to my thread!

Like many warhammer players I have unfortunatly got into a rather large painting dept with my varios 40k armies, monthly painting targets are just to much! But after a short talk with dept matters iv managed to consolidate my monthly painting targets into one easily paintable monthly sum!

In other words iv combined all my diferent armies into 2 Apocalypse armies which, hopfully, I will be able to finish faster! YAY! Unfortunatly these projects also include varios Titans which could distract me for bulk painting about a guzillian guardsmen Hmmm :D

So I feel a list is in order! My current porojects stand thus:
Imperial guard..
Paint 2 plattoons of steel legion + comand squad and supporting HW teams.
Paint 4 storm trooper squads, a veteran squad, there chimera and comand squad.
Paint 2 leman russes and a basilisk.
Buy, assemble and paint a Baneblade, 2 more leman russes and 2 more basilisks + some more infantry
Schratch build 3 warhound titans (using LackOfs templates)
And erÖoh thatís it!

Eldar..
Paint 3 falcon grav tanks + Aspects inside (banshees, fire dragons and scorpions)
Finish 16 dire avengers
Buy convert and paint 8 more dire avengers (using elf bowman legs)
Paint 5 rangers
Asemble and paint an armourcast phantom Titan (should be arriving this weekend)
Buy and assemble 3 Eldar shadow hosts (or whatever the set with all the wrath models in is)
And thatís all the Eldar!

And finaly I have to finish sprucing up my 2000pt khorne army and start and finished a Slaneshi army (which may also need a titan :D)

Oh and i will also put up pics of the apocalypse city fight board a friend and I are building as well as some other apocalyse terrain projects!

So I think I have my work cut out for the next year or so! Il be using this thread to let you all watch and laugh at my disasterous attempts to handle this..Enjoy

OK no coments...goes to sit in corner and cry...but here are some pics for you look at and criticise!

First my WIP warhound titan foot...I used some clever photo shop as iv only actualy made one toe and the back toe mount and will be using casting to make duplicates! (all credit to LoBN for the templates which the rest of the model is based on oh and some to forge world which this foot is based on :D)

http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c109/orkslayer/titanfoot.jpg
(iv drawn in the main toe piston)

oh and heres a rather random shot of the 94 steel legion i have to paint, wooo!

I'm speachless, I thought I had a lot on my to do list but whew, 3 warhounds, a phantom and a baneblade, that's a lot of stuff.

Good luck with everything.

i like it big armies are always the best, but bulk painting can get a bit boring. but ur stuff's all looking good keep up the work n keep us updated with photos :P

And I thought I had an huge log of things that needed work... looks like a solid start already. I'll certainly be keeping an eye on that warhound as it progresses as I've been considering the effort required to scratch-build one of those beasts (and you're doing THREE).

Your Evil Twin
01-09-2007, 12:22
Cheers guys!

I should probably say before you all faint with the thought of scratch building 3 warhounds that i will be cheating somewhat! As i will only be building one then casting the pieces in resin! That is why foot is alittle more detailed than lackofs templates show as i only have to make 1 (that goes for the legs as well!)
However dont get me wrong its still alot of work as all the little gubins and armor have to be put oin afterwards!

This was abit of a piontless update but i promise pics of the infantry (now 70 not 50 after a little reshuffle) with there brand new red coats (there all very happy, infantry union finaly paying off :D) Oh and maybe some pics of my eldar stuff...

Untill later!

Your Evil Twin
04-09-2007, 16:01
Il be using tianti sylicone rubber (found here) http://www.tiranti.co.uk/subcategory_list.asp?Content=Mouldmaking&Category=9 to cast each individual piece e.g leg segments, toes etc then add details like pistons after! Its abit of a risk as it could iether go disasterously wrong or briliantly right!

Also the phantom titan arrived today so il get pics up ASAP along with pics of the ST and other bits and bobs! Unfortunatly I just started 6th form so that will slow this project down abit.

Size doesn't matter, oh no, of course it doesn't.

Your Evil Twin
08-09-2007, 20:32
A very concise yet motivating post scrubout (oh and thanks for letting me into your leage :D)

Rictus, it should look even more impressive once its all one colour and has all the trees I have for it stuck in!
(oh and those propaganda posters are exelent! they will make exelent finishing touches to the city fight board im working on!)

I must also now update to say that the resin and rubber for the titan cast has arrived so i should hope to have the caste curing by the end of tomorro!

Your Evil Twin

The red is meant to be inquisitorial (evil :D) but also alows them to play with my khorne army who need all the fire power they can get!

that warhound leg is looking great and so is the phantom. i am scratch building a warlord titan for apocalypse but casting it is so expensive. i am still looking for ideas and there is a few ideas on my log( the link is in my sig(shameless plug)). good luck with the titan and the steel legion (especially),

Hey folks, thanks for your comments everyone, just a quick update explaining...why there is no real update :S

Unfortunately my mums has the camera again so I cant put up pics of the amazing amount of work I..er..have done..ahem…but I have made some progress! As soon as I get a chance I’l be putting up pics of my first successful titan toe cast pieces!! Alright not to impressive but unfortunately my leg cast was a complete disaster for a number of reasons, (namely I was tired and put half the right amount or catalyst in Whoops) But I’m buying some more rubber and persevering...also iv ran out of paper cups so I cant cast any more toes :(

Iv have however made some progress on the bulk painting of my steel legion and have done the bone on the banshees.

Keep up the flow of motivating comments ideas and criticism it rocks!

Ok guys, this thread has been dead for a while as my wonderful sister took our camera with her to Australia!

However I have been slogging away slowly but biggest update is the warhound! I have now nearly finished the body, waste and head (all need green stuffing and detailing ready for casting) pics....

http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c109/orkslayer/titan1.jpg

http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c109/orkslayer/titan2.jpg

http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c109/orkslayer/titan3.jpg

Btw both the head and waist will have have round spacers in on the finished model! (oh and your not imagining things they are milk bottle tops :P)

Comments and criticism welcome! (seriously don't be shy, id rather you point out my mistakes now rather than after its cast)

What weapons are you planning on giving it?

Your Evil Twin
29-10-2007, 13:59
Cheers guys!

Maracna, il be adding detail when the whole model is finished before i cast it wires and power packs and so on!

Dren Krelar, I will be making all 4 (plasma, vulkan, blast and inferno) then casting them to give me a choice (as im having 3 asis my mate so we need all the combos) they will be magnetised as well wooo!

Keep up the comments guys there very motivational!

29-10-2007, 15:45
Ahhaahahohoho!

Very nice, very nice indeed.

The round markers would make good turbolasers with very little modification, but the highlighters would take a lot of modification to turn into plasma blastguns.

Is your titan complety plasticard besides the resin and platic /gs bitz?

Your Evil Twin
30-10-2007, 12:36
Mostly. The whole structure is plasticard with some foamcore and random bases and milk bottle tops etc!

It still needs a lot of green stuffing along the lines where there are small gaps. Im off school today due to a serious wasp sting reaction this morning! So il have a chance to get some more work done...update tonight hopefully!

I really like the warhound so far :D looking forward to following this to completion.
Avoid those wasps though they can be nasty. I personally am supposed to carry one of theose adrenallin pens around to stab myself with if I get stung. Due to the fact that they reckon I would only get about 30 mins to get to a hospital before i'm pushing up the daisies...

lol yeah, they paint all models under the template green and brown with no armor saves allowed!

Precinctomega, iv unfortunately done no more work on the modular board tho likelihood is that il try to finish it before our first proper apocalypse game!

Il have finished pics of the finished plasma blast gun in about half an hour, iv been working on it for about 5 hours errrr but its loooking pretty cool (the bloody sloping end is a pain in the ass!)

Until later

OK after almost 5 hours straight work i have almost finished the plasma blast gun! It just needs the front re done now i know how. (my trial and error method succeeded only in coting my hands in super glue) and a bit more detailing and green stuffing!

Huh? I havnt seen his as i dont think hes started yet, I said im sure his will be better but mine will be cooler because i will have more (quantity not quality in my book) he then told me he is also making 3 or 4 which viods my piont, end of.

But moving on, il be starting the vulcan mega bolter tonight and may have a crack at the turbo laser as well (i need to find somthing to use for barels, any ideas?) but as the turbo laser and inferno cannon use the same base i will make one of those and cast it then make seperate barrels! Also i need to finish and add detail to the plasma blast gun!

Your Evil Twin
31-10-2007, 23:27
well the plasticard came to a whapping £15 + glue, plastic tubing and faom board its probably about £20 (about a 14th of the cost) however resin and rubber for casting has come to about £80 so far. But from this i get infinite number of them so i should get my money's worth! (assuming i make 3 for instance thats a saving of £840 and a cost of about £150 hehe)

Feel free to giggle insanely if you feel its justified!

6th times the charm it seems, Iv finally got an end piece for my plasma blast gun! I had to cave it out of foam core with a file but it looks ok. Needs a bit of refinement and green stuffing though! Iv also done the ammo boxes for the vulcan! Both guns obv still need a lot of detail, thats tomorrows job!

I have absolutely no idea! But a lot, iv been working on it for about 2 months. Done a lot more recently though as im getting faster with the plasticard. Still it will be worth it in the end!

I got most of the world done on the inferno cannon tonight so i may be able to get pics up later!

Also iv decided to convert my phantom titan into a huge revenant titan instead, more details soon...

shush, these are mighty god machines of the imperium "capable of destroying entire armies of the enemy" or something like that! and besides i feel that anything with a gun longer than your average tank is not is scout :D

Unfortunately i cant find batteries for my camera but tomorrow night i shall have pics of the inferno cannon and (if i can think of something yo use for barrels) the turbo laser. If anyone with a turbo laser armed warhound could measure the exact diameter of the barrels i would be eternally grateful!!

Thats a point, anyone who can think of something to use for the turbo laser barrels (that works) gets a prize!! (possibly a turbo laser when its finished :D) as im totally stumped, iv tried everything from pvc piping and felt tip pens to wooden spoon handles! theres just nothing the right size!

Thanks in advance

Hey Folks, just a quick non-update to say that im in norfolk till next Friday so there will be no updates till then.

Also iv finished the inferno cannon but my camera broken (new one in the post)!

Please all keep pondering my turbo laser trouble and remember a prize for the best idea!!

For the turbo laser barrels, I'd get hold of some tubing that has an acceptable inner diameter, then build up the outer diameter using layers of thin plasticard.

I'm starting work on my own Warhound, I expect to set up a project log in the near future. Thanks for sharing your work, having you blaze the trail will make it easier for me! :)

@Evil Twin -

Good work so far, ill be lurkin about the thread for a while and really enjoy your progress. I like the ball joint for the feet a lot more then the one i did in my templates. However at the time it seamed much easier to make the design the way i did. I also like the changes you made to the feet and your resin casting looks really good.

As far as the plasma blastgun in the end i ended up not making the "nozzle" (end) out of folded plasticard. I had some 3/4" PVC that i cut long ways twice.

So i had 4x 2" lengths of a "Quarter Pipe" Shape. I then just separated them with a trapezoidal piece of plasticard horizonataly, and a triangular peice verticaly. I then just caped the end with plasticard and some tubing.

This picture is pretty dark but its the best i had.
Note i did something similar on the "plasma area"
The white is the PVC pipes and the red is the plasticard.

http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c398/jsvironfurnace/Warhound/PlasmaBlastGun.jpg

As far as turbolaser barrels i never actualy made some.
you can get about any size of pipe in PVC or plasticard tubing.
If that doesnt work alot of hoby shops sell small dia. brass tubing which comes in some decent sizes.

ALso if you have access to them, there are some tubes/smokestacks/whatever in the cities of death boxes that make great gun barrels.

Feel free to PM/IM me if you have any questions you feel i can help with.

Ok im back from Norfolk, the last day was pretty interesting as the sea front of our town was basically destroyed by a tidal surge (luckily few building were damaged tho!) Other than that it was a bit dull tho (measuring sand dunes is not as fun as one would imagine)

As for the war hound iv made some progress but still no pics, the resin also hasn't arrived in my absence which is abit anoying.

Visgoth...good luck mate there tricky but very rewarding especially towards the end, il try to give you the best help i can though mine was mainly trial and error so it may not be all that good :D

Cheers Lackof, The only reason im able to put so much time into bits like the feet and guns is because i know il be casting it so for each thing i make i get like 10! Its very motivating (i only had to make 1 toe for example unlike your 8)

Thanks for the help tho, I will ask in my local hobby shop whether they can order in the right rod, i assume i want the diameter as shown on the templates? Also i think i will stick with the plasma blast gun end iv got now as its definitely warming on me!

Thanks again for all the support guys and I know i promised titans tanks terrain and more so hopefully my next update will also include some terrain iv been working on and some of my inquisition and elder!

Ok update time!

I now have a fully working camera and somewhere to take photos so here is some random updates!

First the inferno cannon, still needs detailing but like the other two the base is there!
http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c109/orkslayer/infernocannon.jpg

Here is some terrain i made for our apocalypse board, they look abit crap on carpet and they are only plumbing stuff sprayed gold and red etc but they look ok...
http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c109/orkslayer/industrialpipes.jpg
Im hoping they will look better when the whole board is finished!

And here is some stuff from my inquisition army, stormtroopers and new grey knights

Cheers mate!

Iv have now (almost) finished work on the vulcan mega bolter with only minor detailing and gap filling now needed.
http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c109/orkslayer/megabolterbarreled.jpg

http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c109/orkslayer/vulcanbarreled1.jpg

Also my forge world avatar arrived this morning, its utterly fantastic as are all forge world models (£45 though) the plan is to have a squad of each of the 6 aspects (2 of dire avengers) each with a pheanix lord + the avatar and 3 falcons to create an Eldar aspect army! Should be cool...
http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c109/orkslayer/avatar.jpg

And lastly the 6 pheanix that arrived a few days ago, each will eventually have a nice scenic base and a good paint job (asurman was speed painted along with the rest of my dire avengers and i will probably re-paint the blue)
http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c109/orkslayer/phenixlords.jpg

Thanks for looking, il shal post another big update and maybe a short tutorial when the rubber arrives and i can get casting! Unfortunately I have until next Wednesday to write my house play (a 20 min version of the hitch hikers guide to the galaxy) so I wont be able to get much done on my various projects! (any suggestions for that would also be most welcome!)

Titan should look realy good when finished!

Stupid question #1 from someone who has not done any plasticard work, would it be posible to make the housing for the megabolter and magazine by foldering plasticard instead of cut and glue? score the fold lines on the inside? Can you get a 90 degree bend or does it snap?

Just wondering.

Bugbait out.

Your Evil Twin
15-11-2007, 14:31
Well unfortunately blood_red_sandman if you make a titan out of serial box card it will usually look like a titan made from serial box card :D however it does seem to have taken you about 1/100 of the time of mine so kudos there!

Bugbait_nz... I don't really no about folding plasti card, the best advice a can give you is that it isn't very good for rapping round stuff and it does snap if you bend it to much. But i don't see why the thinest kind shouldnt bend so long as you have a solid something for it to attach to (although you may want 3 supports inside rather than just one at each end so it doesnt go a funny shape in the middle) Other than that all I can say is try it and see!

if you want to bend plasticard try using a heat gun

Does your Titan have a name?

Well this one is called "masterinius moldarus" which is of course Latin for master mold!

But when I have 3 they will be called something like emperors wrath, vengeance and retribution or something, any better suggestions welcome as I havnt really thought about it yet!

I hope to have some more pics tonight of the finished guns and the casting kit is definitely here tomorrow and i have the whole afternoon off to work on it so it should be ready for casting by Sunday night if all goes well (although i did say that a few weeks ago :angel:)

Stay tuned and thanks for all the support!

The way you've done the barrels looks better that the FW version.

Your Evil Twin
19-11-2007, 20:03
Ok I know I havnt updated for a while but iv been very busy with work and have been waiting for the rubber to arrive and then set etc etc

But enough excuses here are some pics of my progress! I have successfully cast the waist and upper leg sections of the titan as well as the feet (no pics of that yet) and the inferno cannon (and mega melter, same stats as a turbo laser which saves me some work :D)

http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c109/orkslayer/titanbits.jpg
(the small air bubble you see in the inside right leg has been corrected (see other leg) and i have made the whole thing abit thinner)

The rest of the rubber will be arriving on Wednesday hopefully but as no one will be in it might have to be Friday and so the next update should be a totally finished, detailed and primed cast warhound!! WOOO finally!

Your Evil Twin

22-11-2007, 16:46

I have no idea how much this beast is going to weigh nor how much resin it will use! Although i will be putting polystyrene blocks into the main hull to cut down the weight, not entirely sure how to do this yet but im sure it will work!

Looking good.

It must have taken balls to cut that Phantom. I would have had to stop shaking first before I could even pick up the saw...

Are you going to have any posability in the feet or are they both going to be flat like that one there?

Well, how often in your life do you get to hack apart a £250 model?? Also, this simple equation explains why I did it...
Model bigger than warhound + cast that makes cheap warhounds = ruined warhound being stood on! its simple maths really

As for the foot...hope this helps!

That's a nice titan you've got there. Excelent work.

How tall is it going to be when finished? From what you've gotten done, it looks like it'll be around 17" or 18".

BTW, I like the Terminators axe.

Your Evil Twin
26-11-2007, 21:17

Not sure about hight, it should be about 10" like the forge world one or maybe a bit higher, I think its just the camera angle that makes it look bigger!

Il put up better shots tomorrow when its finished and undercoated!
Now all I have to do is detail it, paint it then...finish 2 more!

As im sure you can tell, having gone over to the dark side...(adopt Darth Vador vioce) "NOW I AM THE MASTER!"

But thank for the kind words Anvil, although they sound more like shock and surprise than a compliment :D

nice, very, actually one of the best looking AC reavers I have seen, and I dig the Warhound, being sans income, I can't get my own, and even when I had one the FW is just monetary murder. Mmmm Twinlinked TurboLaser and Vulcan Megabolter..., yeah er.. good times.

BulldogUK
06-12-2007, 19:37
The warhounds are made from card Gruubii, cheap as chips, cost around £25 in materials to build both and put them together in a couple of weekends, I agree with you though, the FW stuff is nice but sooooooooooooooo expensive!

Anyhow, back to the subject once again great work evil twin, nice to see a different approach to scratch building ;)

Your Evil Twin
06-12-2007, 20:25
Bulldog, that Reaver is fantastic...and now people browsing my thread will think its mine hehe...I mean..er.. it is! ahem..Great work though, Im really trying to get my hands on one of those AC Reavers, not that I dont have enough on my hands but to have one of those leading my titan squad would be awesome!

Ahhh and your the guy who made those utterly ridiculously cool thunderbolts, warhounds and warlords...inspiring stuff my friend! Your warhounds barely look scratch built, I should have cast one of them!

And Gruubii, hes right, £25 and a few weekends and your done! it rocks!!

Iv been green stuffing my avatar and starting the bone white on my inquisitorial space marines tonight. pics when I finished something important..

hehe, guess it looks like you just adopted the reaver then evil, two walks a day and 5 square meals, he's house house trained and everything!

Ebay is full of reaver madness at the moment, its worth running 'armorcast' through the search engine every week, be surprised what it drags up!

07-12-2007, 16:19

lol excellent, a house trained titan, just what iv always wanted!
-BUT REMEMBER a titan is for life not just for Christmas!! :D

Your probably right Visgoth, im not even sure if mine is an original as it didn't have the proper box and I have nothing to compare it to! I cant see anything wrong with it though, its not like GW make anything similar!

OK. Small update folks (no pictures)

First of all I have managed to trade my Eldar Phantom Titan which was just WAY to big for my Eldar army for a Reaver titan for my inquisition (although im now considering a separate allied titan legion)

This means my imperial apoc army now includes:

Inquisitor in terminator armour
2 junior inquisitors in the guard
20 terminators (5 normal)
22 marines (10 grey nights 5 with jump packs)
3 dreadnoughts (one forge world)
3 drop pods for the dreads, miniature scenery ones
3 land raiders for the termies
a predator
5 bikes
30 Kariskin
60 steal legion (3 heavy weapon squads)
2 leman russes
a basilisk
2 warhounds
and a reaver

and you will be glad to here that so far I have finished... 20 STEAL LEGION!! Come on!!

But I have also done the first coat for the bone white on much of the marine stuff and some of the kariskin...ahem...please help me get motivated im starting Orks in January *sits looking at army considering eBay...NOOOO

Eldar are also coming oin nicly, they all have nice scenic bases now, shame nothing is painted *starts crying again

But I must be positive, its not like I have exams or anything to distract me...ahem :s

its pretty easy to tell if they are orginal Armorcast or not, what color is the resin. Cause the resin they used should be pretty yellow by now. If its all bright white its recast. Even still I do want a warlock head, psi-lance and powerfist for my phantom. Who knows perhaps the recasts have less pinholes.

Your Evil Twin
13-12-2007, 17:46
Oh, thats good, the phantom I have recently shipped off was very yellow! Lets hope the Reaver is to...not that I care, im converting it into a forge world design Reaver by scratch building new upper legs and putting the shoulder armour on top of the shoulders not on silly sticks! Any thoughts on other things I can do?

But in my weeks in exile I have managed to assemble the avatar, a little differently than forge world and iv finished another pair of titan legs (minus wait armor)

Huh?

Yeah eBay is the place to go, although they tend to fetch a lot! Might be best looking around the various forums or bartertown for one first!

Thank you Luthien.

Ok folks, just started painting the avatar with is a pain in the ass tbh! Apart from all the fiddly details you also have to highlight BACKWARDS to get the inner glow effect. So please tell me if my current plan will work and or make suggests! Im trying to get this effect...
http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/avatar.htm (top one)

I have used watered down scab red run into all the crevasses and cracks etc i will add successive thinner lighter shades of red then orange to the whole model (but only in the gaps) the start working in yellows and white into the very deepest/ nearest to hist chest cracks, then add some residual glow highlights and do the detail...will this work?

Cheers

Hey folks

As know one answered my question I used trial and error, not finished yet but its looking ok so far! (reserving pics until completion for dramatic effect :D)

But I have a new question! my whole army is currently based on miniature scenery "ruined temple bases" I think, anyway there very Eldar'y and cool but im considering painting them grey to match our city fight table rather than an Eldar bone color...So, display temple style or grey city fight, your thoughts...?

Cheers

Oh, display temple, it has to be. You could pull that off well.

Lets see some pics of Mr Spear...

Well essentially iv cut the whole thing the pieces with the intention of adding spacers but my local store is out for foam core so its still in pieces! Hopefully when its finished it will be a few inches taller than my warhounds and act as a "lead" titan!

I picked up some Dark reapers on the way home today and iv done the ed on the howling banshees. Iv also finished the sand bags on the heavy bolter teams!

Pics up some time tomorrow when i get a chance!

That scratch built titan is the best I have seen of like ...anything 40k. It like embodies the word awsome.

O.o

Well done, seriously -speechless... -looks amazing...

...But now you're making another one?!?!

Good luck!

omfg i love your phantom titan

Tragically I traded it away for a Reaver which im currently cutting up to make it more to my liking (no pics yet as its in pieces)
But I am shortly getting a FW revenaught which should be equally cool when painted all Bial Tan!

Any advice on painting Bial Tan falcons would now be appreciated as doing them as a batch fairly soon! (the Eldar are coming along slowly with the dire avengers, banshees and one fire dragon now 3 colors, 3 shades)

.....Wow....
that titan is amazing, and resin casting too, why that's sheer genius (but please don't get big headed ;) )
i like the karskin colour scheme aswell

Good Job

Cheers mate!

OK folks, its UPDATE TIME!! *party poppers and general hurah's all round!

Iv been fairly busy as iv just finished exams and have lots of time on my hand now, although due to a new project starting next week, and he fact im now officially board of Eldar im speed painting these guys so I can finished the army, its 2 colors based all round!!

OK, first some of the Eldar Aspects iv been working on....
http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c109/orkslayer/firedragon.jpg
The banshees also have a Banshee bases Autarch (far right)
http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c109/orkslayer/banshees.jpg

And one of the falcons....im giving up the aspect specific falcons in favor of 3 green ones (so I can batch paint them)
Heres the first...the flash really brings out the shoddy highlighting :D
http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c109/orkslayer/phalcon.jpg

Iv also got some dark reapers ready for painting and, coming in the post next week....A REVENAUGHT TITAN!!! The plan is to paint the Rev. the Falcons and the Rangers in a Biel -Tan Scheme + all the aspects will make it more in tune with the fluff, an elite Bial-tan strike force....the rangers infiltrate, locate the enemy and call in the aspects in falcons, they call in the Rev. if they need fire support and the DA's come in to mop up the survivors! Or at least thats the idea, it usually all goes to the dogs after turn one!

See next post for the Imperial update!

Ok, the imperials have also seen some progress, on the modeling front iv sand bagged the heavy bolters....
http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c109/orkslayer/heavybolters.jpg

And, after trading off the first warhound for the Revenaught iv built a new one! (still needs some detailing work and ...oh yeah, painting!)
http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c109/orkslayer/titan21.jpg

http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c109/orkslayer/titan22.jpg

Iv also started work on beefing up the reaver!
http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c109/orkslayer/reaverlegs.jpg

Eventually that extra bit of card will have an imperial eagle on and some rivets, I prefer the techno look for titans not the smooth sleekness of the armourcast ones!

Unfortunately most of the work iv done on the imperial force is painting High Inquisitor *no name yet's strike fores, but as there on their second highlight over dark flesh (going for bone) they all look pink and girly so no pics yet!!

Anyway, thats all for now, next update when iv done some more work!
Cheers

The fire dragon looks really nice and it must be great to be able to mass produce titans :).

It looks like the reaver's going to get a fair bit taller. :D

The Keeper of Secrets
26-01-2008, 19:03
Two things:

1. You've dropped THE BEST IDEA YOU EVER HAD FOR YOUR ELDAR!!!!!! Do 3 specific falcons, or there will be pain.

2. You've used the inferno cannon on your titan. Does that mean that you're not casting that part? Only having 1 in you're titan legion seems a bit stupid, considering you only have two other guns.

Apart from the first point, really good, the fire dragon looks brilliant!

Your Evil Twin
27-01-2008, 16:41
No mate, iv already made the cast of it im just using the master cause im lazy and couldn't be bothered to cast one :D

Thanks for the kind works Firestorm!

If you prefer the techno look of the lucius pattern titans instead of the sleeker mars pattern ones, why dont you have a go at updating the armourcast reaver into a lucius pattern instead of a mars ,one youd just have to remake the armour to be square, you can keep the head and the framework of the original titan.
Just a suggestion!

This pic shows its original upper leg and a WIP of my new upper leg!

very good stuff here!
I love your Avatar..
you have no idea how annoyed I was when they released that, having bought the sword wielding version when that came out.. to then see one throwing a spear when I was watching 300 weekly was a major annoyance!
I agree that your plasma blastgun needs a bit more detail, but it's otherwise looking fantastic!

This is really nice, love the work you've done. One question - the parts you cast - are they solid? Doesn't that cost a bit much? Could you not make them with polystyrene spacers inside to cut down on the amount of resin used? Sorry if this has already been asked

Wow, havnt posted on here in a while but, since its been brought to the top :D

I use polystyrene blocks held up by cocktail sticks in the molds to reduce resin usage. But its not to save money really more weight, my earlier models didnt balance as the top half was to heavy!

And since im here how about an update, try to motivate myself back into the hobby!

I'm stunned you cut apart your reaver, I wouldnt have had the balls to do that.

Out of interest how much did it go for on ebay? The link is too old to work now.

Whatever happened with the Phantom?
