Hello fellow princeps!

 

Having finally gotten an account in this vibrant community, I guess it's only appropriate to start by showing off some miniature goodness. I have a personal compulsion to convert everything to make it unique, even if only slightly, and a Titan Legio would be no exception.

 

Legio Favilla, the Ashen Gods, are not a frontline battle Legio as such, originally developed for more sombre purposes of acting as final arbitrators of imperial justice for civilizations that resisted too vehemently. Theirs was an unenviable lot, from a sane point of view, to descend in flames to wipe whole worlds' inhabitants from existence until no shred of memory remained. "Imperator Domine, in cinere dona eis requiem" - Lord Emperor, grant peace for their ashes. They've often marched alongside the XIV legion Astartes, with whom they share a grim and humorless attitude towards advancing the great efforts of the Imperium.

 

Currently I'm up at 2 Warlords, 3 Reavers, 4 Warhounds and 10 Knights of some varieties built with some more in boxes or being eyed on the shelves. AT hits just the right buttons, plastic crack train has no brakes biggrin.png

Paintingwise, trying out NMM for the first time in any seriousness was a spur of the moment decision that came about as I was starting the first Warlord. Using metallic paints just didn't feel right on this scale, so I went with a more expressive and less realistic style to try and capture some of that sweet, heavy atmosphere of baroque paintings, stepping out of their frames and striding into the furious, mad symphony of war.

 

I apologize for phone pictures, future updates should have an actual system camera behind them from now on.

 

The grand smurf of the order, Iudex Ultionis - The Judge of Vengeance, first to fall from the heavens horns blaring.

Incredible stuff, very menacing. The NMM is well done, I'd heard folks say it might affect how the scale of the titans came across but you've really made it work. Same for the weathering.

 

The pose of Echo Dolorum is excellent too, it's one I haven't seen before.

A d that is like your first post in the B&C? That’s how to make an entrance!

Remarkable work man, excellent style, it has a very baroque quality about it! Colour me very, VERY impressed!

If you have more unpainted in the pipeline, you might find this interesting: http://www.bolterand...-of-the-heresy/

I saw some these over on AT18 a week or so ago. Great paint job, making brown work is not an easy task and you've pulled it off well!

Thanks laddies, baroque is the name of the game and brown is the new black :D

I'd love to do more soonishly, but moving houses takes the top priority first. Two Reavers are primed, though, just in case I happen to catch a break at some point...

Nice to see you join us here.

 

They are absolutely gorgeous! I particularly love the small conversion details and kit bashes you do. They add tremendously to the beauty of your God engines. And the painting is top class as well.

You have got some amazing looking stuff there. Your Warlord at the start is awesome.

Looking forward to seeing what you do with those Reavers.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks Mendi and Dallo!

 

Currently on somewhat slow burn until March, but I've been pondering some things like banners. I like banners. Titans ought to have banners. Then I realized I forgot to post a WIP picture of Damnatio Memoriae last time, d'oh.

 

ec0a033cca9c6c6c37685ef18b9d74d9_103099.

 

This was a test, obviously, as that type of banner is way too thick to be the ultimate solution and I'll be looking towards aluminum sheets in the future. He'll probably keep it, though, as I like that bit and it is over the top in the best way.

Never thought about banners on my titans, but this made me consider it. Might have to test it on one or two Titans to see if I like it.

Bleh, getting up to speed delayed because of Real Life and other insignificant reasons :P

Buuut...

I just stumbled on an odd idea that struck a chord. I love Dune, both for its world building and classic scifi imagery. Its effect for 40k decades later is also very substantial and many themes play nicely together. It also has giant god-wurms. AT has giant god-engines. Giant engines and beasts punching each other is cool. Naturally, this leads to the possibility of creating another force for the game while allowing me to paint the proper titans as one huge Legio. Genius.

Any suggestions for cool base models for worms of different sizes? Purple worms, cthonians, whaevah, show me.

I imagine the force to mechanically run as a counts-as-Vulpa group with more fists than law allows, twinferno hounds for vomit etc. while mandatory carapace guns will be representing spotters calling light artillery help from afar. More excuses to use my Epic miniatures the better :D

For real though, it may get pricey but there are worm-like creatures in the Rogue Trader box. Granted, they're Nurgle but still...

Those are way too small, though. I think? If I'm going to cover things from knights to warlords, without trying to alter the general size of their profile too much.

Depending on what you want to achieve, I think the upcoming 40K Chaos releases will have quite a few interesting bits for kitbash. I am thinking the Myphitic Blight-hauler could also serve.

There’s a couple of Cthonians bursting out of the ground in one of FFG’s Mansions of Madness sets, they’re about the height of a Warhound? Might be expensive, though!

Thanks, Rabenga. We aim to please ;)

I considered cthonians, having some from Mansions v.1, but the tentacles don't really feel Dune-y to me. Might get a hold of some Reaper Purple Worms, we'll see how the idea develops.

...And of course, now GW teases us with potential rules for great beasts in Doom of Molech, argh. Luckily, I'm not in a hurry :D

Got some Purple worms cheaply, they seem to be roughly Warhound sized if a bit slender. Need larger based too, but I have a good feeling about them.

Great models! Could make for a really interesting part of a narrative game with random terrain effects... Beware the shifting sands!

In other news, got some 50 or so trees to bring variation to our usually urban or desert styled boards. Must ruffle them around a bit at some point, so the branches look a bit more natural, but it's nice to have some anyway.

A tad slow on the modelling front, but I did get hyped enough on an upcoming game that I accidentally got even more trees and also made some tea light explosions on the side. They just refuse to play nice with the camera, but I'm sure they'll learn in time. I've been wanting those things for ages :D

 

(Though they'll probably get a light spray of grey and brown at some point to look like thicker smoke, for now I'm content to just have them.)
