@Mandragola: The trees do look good with that mud on them, gives them a nicely non-uniform and natural look. The grey sludge of WW I is, oddly enough, an eerily beautiful sight on these models. If you wanted to push the shelled out look a bit further, maybe consider clipping some branches off and lay them in the mud? With full, rounded branching still on the trunks, they look more singed than shelled, unlike the very hard hit ground around them.

 

Even when there's some branches left, it'll be like this:

I've thought about this sort of thing. Looks very difficult to achieve, but potentially very effective if done right. 

 

I've currently got two methods of doing trees: these brass ones and the broken paintbrushes for stumps. But in either case there should really be branches everywhere.

OK guys, two weeks to go! Let's wrap up our projects and make sure we make it to the finishing line!

 

@ Mard: your collection is growing to be very impressive! Well done mate and look forward for that Reaver! As a reminder you need to go to 5 Titans to go for Task 3. msn-wink.gif BTW, are you going to name them? 

 

@ Stobz: Great news - I bet now they have names, they have personalities all of a sudden! It's not just a Warhound that's under fire, it's Eternal Night!!!! DO SOMETHING! laugh.png

 

@ General Zodd: Well General, what can I say? The scenery and Thunderchild look mighty impressive! Your work on the flames really works well and the final result is definitely worth it - although I'm sure it must have been an uphill effort for the Warbringer (it was for me)... On to the Psi Titan! 

 

@ Mandragola: It's great to see you are on track to finish all six Titans before the deadline - and they look amazing so far - the leg designs in particular! And I know how you feel about the rows of rivets - they are indeed tiny, but well worth doing! How did you find the Warbringer (looks ace) experience overall? Also can you please check the first page and confirm I got your vows right (or not)? 

 

@ Rune Priest Ridcully: Of course they count - and they look awesome too! Just check the first page to confirm I got everything right! smile.png

 

UPDATED TO THIS POINT!

Well I have another Reaver as well as this one to build, so let's adjust my vow for two more Reavers

Hjalmmeyjar and Svanmeyja!!

Hi @Captain, I decided to amend my vow to do the Astorum Warbringer instead of the Mortis Reaver that I'd originally planned. My 6 titans will therefore be:

 

- Penumbral Reaper

- 3 Mortis Warhounds

- Astrorum Warbringer

- Astorum Warhound

 

I've still got the Mortis Reaver in its box and will get round to it at some point. Hope this is all ok. If you'd like me to do the Reaver then I probbly still could.

Got a few titans I've been putting off for a while, so considering joining up for the last couple of weeks. Do the titans have to be fully unpainted when you vow them though?

I've sprayed the warhounds skeletons leadbelcher and given them a wash and drybrush, but haven't got much further than that or started on the reaver really.

@Captain you asked for my thoughts on the Warbringer. Overall I found it a great kit, but almost too detailed. There's so much going on and a huge amount of edging to paint.

 

Posing the thing isn't that easy. The lower leg plates can cause issues and I had a bit of trouble with them on the right leg, where the ankle is angled forward. I had to shave a bit off the inside of the plates for them to fit.

 

I've magnetised the quake cannon, which took a lot of work. I've made a bellicosa to fit it but need to make something to replace the magazines. I expect we'll see a bellicosa model before too long (perhaps in just a couple of hours!) so I haven't prioritised this. I've got a second one of these in its box anyway.

 

One thing I've found is that overall it feels a bit less alive than some of the other titans. The warbringer is much more of a walking gun platform as it sort of lacks arms and its main gun is in no way anatomical. So I've found it lacks a bit of character compared to the other stuff, for me at least. I enjoy posing titans and while I think I've managed to get a realistic pose here, it's nothing exciting.

This is a hugely impressive pice of scenery man, I think it qualifies for the title of Ordinate! Wow! You really like your scenery building don't you? Well the result is mighty impressive and you should be rightly proud!

So with the Lockdown I might as well do it, I hereby vow to complete the Princeps Venerablis, by adding a warlord to Legion Oberon.

I love how GW creates the Warp Talon to be some sort of super-powered Raptor, and instead it's become the king-of-all-kitbashes.
