That is what I'm thinking. The one spot that I keep thinking of is the torso platform on the warlord. I think having a little snow on the rails and in the corner of the floor and door would be appropriate, or as you said the armor panels, or along the legs and feet.

Poor tree!

This amused me. I must have seen a hundred buildings kicked in by titans and nobody bats an eyelid. I kick over one tree and I start getting stick for it.

 

I actually work for an environmental charity, so I'm against kicking over trees in general. I think it works quite well to show a bleak battlefield, as all the smashed trees look sadder somehow than smashed buildings - at least to me. Maybe if the buildings for AT were more domestic-seeming then there'd be some emotional connection to them.


C+C always welcome on my Titanic Plog. Should also be painting Crimson Fists or something.

Could drybrush white on the titans just avoiding the vents and weapons where heat will melt.

The void shields stop rain so snow too

Snow is cold so it can pass though a void shield

Well, I'll figure out what do do with the snow, but I'll do it over in my plog, link in my signature. I don't want to clog of Mandragola's thread with my stuff.

Active engines get snow on them all the time, can't really see why titans wouldn't. Sure, they can probably actively get rid of it via heat release when they really care, but in a prolonged skirmish that might be problematic. A proper snow storm gives no quarter, you can clean when it ends, which might very well be after the battle.

There will also be icicles under heat sinks and vents, as heat causes meltwater runs that freeze again a bit later. They will fly off everywhere when running and explosions kick up, but ehh... For modeling purposes, snow is fine on these things too.

And the voids aren't always on.

The heat of active voids melts the snow and when active no kind of precipitation can get in

If that were the case then the snow would sublimate and turn directly into water vapor and be trapped inside the void. The next time they go down the water would then freeze out of suspension in the air turning directly back into snow to land on the armor.

Actually the voids work only against the outside, that way the titan can fire its weapons from within the shield. Anyway when the shields come down is under fire so the snow would be vaporized instantly

What if it’s not H2O snow? Also snow would look pretty amazing on Astorum models anyway.

There’s quite a number of instances in novels describing rain, dust, snow etc. “sizzling” against Voids.

But even then, there would still be ample opportunity for the above to collect on Titans - e.g. during downtime, when it’s kicked up by wind inside of Voids, when moisture from generators freezes inside of Voids, etc.

Also, I’m assuming Voids don’t just vaporize everything that gets close (else Secutarii would be all dead). Against slow moving stuff it’s probably more like a high static discharge. Lots of slow moving stuff will get through.

I wouldnt see voids stopping snow. I mean full titans walk through voids to get close enough to punch stuff. I imagine voids only stop things from passing through that are over a certain threshold of kinetic energy. Rain may not pass through as the droplets have reached terminal velocity when falling but I dont imagine snow being effected.

Ultima Lux is a thing of brutal beauty, Mandragola. You've done yourself proud with that Warlord; absolutely fantastic. :tu:

You carry the Emperor's will as your torch, with it destroy the shadows.

Accept all challenges, no matter the odds.

Suffer not the Heretic to live.

Abhor the Typo.
