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!

They look really good in digging the classic knights as well!

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!

Really like the scheme and the relative inversions - keep it coming!

Great job on the Warhounds!

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

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.
