I started a thread for my Xana II Mechanicum so I figured I would start one for their sister force my Titanicus force of Gore Crows!

 

Behold legio missing bits! teehee.gif All fully magnetized.

But before I assembled any of the above I had to get my act together. And with a game like Titanicus that meant painting lots of gaming aids and putting them all in a little box!

Then I started on the titans themselves. I use the same basic painting techniques of my Mechanicum force (see signature and read up if you like). Color scheme wise all I could find was a vague description that the main colors were black and white. So I just went with that, threw in some marble effect for giggles and that was that. I hope to get some full size 28mm titans in the future so these are a good practice bed for color layouts! 

 

I also carried over the black head with brass trim from my knights. The thinking is that the knights copy the titans.

 

Before base and oil wash.

After!

With, of course, matching House Malinax Knights.

Black and white with red bases looks great.

I really hope we see Xana II - aligned rules soon. They should have some really unique stuff IMO. Models look great!

Thanks all!  

 

I have a 2nd warlord on the painting bench right now. I actually just finished putting the last gloss coat over the decals (usually do 2 coats to seal them down and level the surface). Once its dry I will be doing the enamel wash. 

 

I usually do the enamel washing only when I have a couple things to do at once because its kind of a pain to clean the airbrush afterward. So, expect some completed updates here and in my AdMech tread soon. Goal is to have the warlord and the other mini done by the end of the weekend! cool.png

 

Next up on the paint bench for Titanicus is the armor panels for 4 Warhounds. . .curse you trim!!!! teehee.gif Thankfully the skeletons and the weapons are basically done.

2nd Warlord complete. All my Titanicus stuff is just table top quality with maybe a little extra here or there. I want them to look good but I also want to finish them sometime in the next decade. whistling.gif

Side by side. I think flipping the scheme turned out fantastic!

Great job on the Warhounds!
Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' 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.

Little Reaver reinforcement due to Christmas gift cards to my FLGSbiggrin.png  And my resolution for this year (and next year too) has been to finish as much backlog as possible (90ish models off the log so far this year!). So, when I buy anything new (only 5 ish models total this year) I have to do something on the back log and I try to keep it 1 to 1. So before I assembled the Reaver I finished up the build on the knights. The main armor on the knights is separate but everything else is glued. Plan is to paint the knights and Reaver at the same time so my backlog 1 to 1 resolution is satisfied.

Good luck on your backlog, I should probably not buy a single new thing till I finish mine...

Finished blocking in the Reaver. Just need to oil wash and do decals. Plan is to finish him by the end of the weekend. I might be able to finish up the little Knights too.

Are you using oils to wash or are you washing to simulate oil? I’m on mobile so I have a hard time remembering everyone’s style.

I use enamel (aka oil) washes.

Did the oil wash yesterday. Finished up the base early this morning (before the wife got up =P) and will, hopefully, be doing decals once all my adulting is finished today.

That Reaver is a sexy beast it looks so clean in black and white like that - I've probably asked before but what colours are you using? :D

I prime with minitaire black primer. The final black is just army painter black that I airbrush on. The white is Vallejo Air Aged White. He is all dirtied up and ready for another gloss to seal the oil wash and then some transfers. Finished up his base (and bases for a handful of minis for my Dark Mech) last night.

Wonderful!

Any chance for a close-up of the reaver's carapace (the one on the left)?

Decals or free-hand?
