WE ARE BACK AND COMBAT READY!

 

After almost three weeks of downtime, the B&C is back on line! During this time I was very productive and completed by Titan. I did get pictures of the process so I'm going to post them here and discuss various issues that I faced during the process.

 

I had left this with the shin guard of the left foot not fitting properly due to the inclination of the leg. Well I worked around that by trimming the slot in the back of the armour plate as meeting the protrusion on the leg was an impossibility. Here's the result (including the right leg armour):

 

med_gallery_27176_14912_39574.jpg

 

med_gallery_27176_14912_169614.jpg

 

med_gallery_27176_14912_108758.jpg

 

Another problem that I encounter was the small pieces of armour between the "toes". The one in the back of the left leg hardly made it into the proper slot as you can see in the picture above, whereas the one in the front (sorry no picture for that), I had to trim the ball joint as it could not fit in the appropriate position - there is a limit to the angle of the leg relative to the foot that can accommodate those small pieces of armour...

 

So my advice is:

 

DO NOT GO FOR A VERY DYNAMIC POSE FOR YOUR WARLORD TITAN 

THEY ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE VERY DYNAMIC ANYWAY!

 

On the painting front, I used my airbrush and some masking tape to make the stripes, using the bolts on the armour rim as indicators so the angle of the stripes be aligned with each other. The masking tape is 6mm although for smaller Titans it might be too wide... 

 

The colour was 2/3 Army Painter "Army Green" and 1/3 Mechanicum Grey. The "white" part is Ulthuan Grey - no mix. The gold is Hashut Copper, Reikland shade and highlight with Sycorax...

Love these Legio colours, great work and glad you solved your fitting issue. I did hear that you can pose so the panels don’t fit, now I see the problem!

I had a pretty productive 3 weeks also, got my 3 knight finished and also did my Reaver. Will have to get the camera out and update my own plog.

Looking forward to your 4 Warhounds Captain!

Thx mate, I will continue posting the progress of the Warlord here, although the actual model is complete by now, so I can share the various little problems that I faced in the process. And I really like the colour too, it works very well... now the next challenge will be the Warhounds, I’m really excited about that.... :yes:

OK, the head. 

 

First off it is a great idea to have two heads there. Secondly, the two halves did not match exactly after I inserted the "eye" between them - there was a small gap. Frankly, I went for a black head in order to sort of mask it...

Great work Captain!

 

I knew the Krytos scheme would come good in the end!

 

For the record, always take one of the ankle pieces and dry fit in in all eight positions whilst your feet are drying, in case you need to re-pose. It is a bit of an oversight by GW not to warn people that 'overdoing' the pose will lead to ankles and/or shinplates that don't fit.

 

Also, in my experience, a hairdryer will unstick plastic glue!

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

Just caught up on this Captain: looking brilliant! Love the stripes and colouring generally, so neat!


Thank you guys - I set out to do two new things for me: magnetising and airbrushing. Not only I did both, but I also did my first stripping of any scale, so thats a useful thing to learn and try out!

So a steep learning curve and I look forward for the next Warlord... biggrin.png

Great work Captain!

Thank you for your kind comments!

I did something similar. by not glueing the right knee and leave it free to adjust as a balancing factor. But I did glue the left leg in place and suffered the consequences! tongue.png

-------------------------------------------------


Now I decided not to go for an Axiom but for a Venator Light Maniple with Provocator Navus (the Warlord) attached.

So I though of recreating the Maniple in the book, because, why not? I have already ordered the 4 Warhounds and they are on the way!

med_gallery_27176_14912_173235.jpg

med_gallery_27176_14912_121143.jpg

As you can see there is a minor problem: every single one has a Vulcan Mega Bolter and Havoc has two!!! That means (assuming that there are two of each weapon in the box, I'm one Vulcan Mega Bolter short.

I also need to do the Black Arrow - the Reaver Titan of the Maniple:

med_gallery_27176_14912_88369.jpg

Obviously the Volcano Cannon is not yet available but I can wait... Let's finish the Warhounds first...

So if anyone has a spare and wants another weapon, pls PM me. smile.png

These are going to look amazing. I’ve just started painting my 2 Warhounds. Lovely kit apart from a couple of sprue attachment positions and the amount of seams to be cleaned on the legs. That’s just about the only seams I’ve encountered on any of the AT stuff.

I’m pretty happy with the 6mm tape width on the carapace, so you could use that for yours. Will post some pics soon for reference.

Edit: I’ve got a spare Mega Bolter you can have for the cost of the postage.

Thx guys, I am really driven to see the Krytos project through, can’t wait for my Warhounds to arrive!

@ Burni: if you have any pics with the 6mm stripes, it’ll be great help. I am inclined to seek out narrower masking tape - or even use the 6mm but with uneven spacing... many options there...

As regards the Bolter, thank you very much, I’ll PM you once I’m home from work!
