+++ADEPTUS TITANICUS+++

So it begins!
 
When this new game came out, I was totally smitten! The minis are fantastic and the game itself is , I think outstanding. Not only the mechanics work, but there is an immersion quality that I haven't felt, since BFG!
 
So in my attempt to build an Axiom Maniple I purchased my first Warlord! 
 
Here it is: 
 
gallery_27176_14912_172329.jpg
 
I'm really excited! The funny thing is I have not decided on the Legio yet! Krytos seems a good option, as does Mortis and Metallica... Atarus is not bad either! 
 
This will also be my first attempt ever in magnetisation... AND I plan to use my airbrush for the first time since the late 80s! ohmy.png
 
I will go through this project step by step, form building, to magnetising, to painting and applying the decals... I will also maintain a sister thread in the Forge WIP - possibly getting more people interested in this game (or at least its modelling side! smile.png
 
So, what Legio? The five ones in the box sort of have the advantage of specific decals - but that's not so limiting for me...

Excellent! I will follow this closely as I have never magnetised anything either!

I’ll be following this closely! I’m sure you’ll have no trouble with the magnets. I’ve been doing it for years, starting with the old crisis suit weapons. So if an idiot like me can do it, it’ll be a walk in the park for you!

Good luck! Legio Ignatum salutes you!

Looking forward to this!

 

I'm totally in love with the models, the little colour/pattern variations you can do between titans, and as you say, it's nice to gain confidence with something new - I've fully magnetised all of mine and broken out the airbrush too!

 

As long as you've got some masking tape, I'd vote for Legio Krytos; really cool scheme, bad guys, sounds psuedo-Greek, and they hang around with the Iron Warriors, who are also fairly Greek...ish... I'm tempted to do them myself once I finish all my pesky loyalists...  thumbsup.gif

I will be glad to share my experience... The thing is, this is supposed to be an easy to magnetise kit - so it'll be a bit like cheating... tongue.png

Fingers crossed... Will you be starting a Legio Ignatum blog?

Krytos Nothing beats pseudo-Greek! tongue.png But whatever little background we have and the colour scheme rock!

Not to mention black and white stripes - not the over-used red black and yellow! msn-wink.gif

Looking good so far mate. This is one of those games I'd love to get into having cut my gaming teeth on the original but I may have to do it a bit at at time while I watch how others get on with it.

 

I'll be watching this with interest.

OK, first off, I try to re-familiarise myself with the airbrush:

 

med_gallery_27176_14912_84399.jpg

 

To that, I start with the "easy" task of spraying War Paints' gun metal on the body of the Titan: 

 

med_gallery_27176_14912_154545.jpg

 

And the end-result: 

 

med_gallery_27176_14912_133148.jpg

 

Not easy! It turns out I'm completely out of touch - I need to re-learn the basics... I kind of regret to have to get my first try with this model. ermm.gif

 

Be that as it may, I carry on to the Nuln Oil phase:

 

gallery_27176_14912_96383.jpg

 

STILL HAVE NOT DECIDED ON THE LEGIO!!!! 

 

And it's not because I can't find the right one, it's because I cannot eliminate so many good options! Krytos maybe...

Thanks for posting it step-by-step. I've only seen beautifully painted complete titans or finished legs, etc. It's good to see the model going together a bit at a time. What were the legs like to assemble? Read complete nightmare stories and even seen examples with them on backwards!

Thank you sir - glad to be of service! biggrin.png

 

The legs are indeed tricky... I was alerted to the fact that some people got it wrong and I was extra careful. The instructions are pretty clear but you need to follow them closely - sometimes things are a bit counter-intuitive... As a matter of fact, it found it very difficult to pose it correctly. There are the ball-joints in the hip and the knees that have a wide ark movement (more than 180 degrees! ohmy.png) and the ball-joints in the ankles. An all these must be glued in a position to keep the waist parallel with the ground -even a small deviation of a few degrees and you'll end up with a Titan looking at the sky or at his toes! laugh.png

 

Anyways, some progress:

 

Metals on the top part BEFORE shading:

You must choose Ignatum. The best Legio. Destructor even better, but without color scheme :(

Great to see your plog too.

I will help you to decide your Legio(s)

I will do Atarus and Mortis so you can take Krytos and Metallica!

Crikey, that's a lot of ball joints. It sounds like 4 arms are required for assembly.

 

Not seeing the metallic problem either.

Yeah, maybe the pic is actually flattering... there is some unwanted texture - I did something like 15 layers of metallics and washes. If you tell me to do again, I don’t even remember how. Will give it a go still, but I’m a bit disheartened.

Oh, and ignore the rats.. :P
