Finally got some paint on my 3D printed order tokens.

Not liking the way they're turning out so far, and may scrub and repaint.

Will prime with a lighter grey so I can use an oil wash on them...

They look good but if you're serious I'd just hit them with another coat of black primer.

Have been thinking about doing a map campaign, and thinking about how to make a visually appealing and functional map. Thus...

 

gallery_8852_16193_35031.png

 

Hex is 7.5 cm across, with holes for 3mm x 3mm magnets. This one is completely flat - a plains hex if you will. The idea is to make mountains, rivers, hives, etc. I'm currently thinking the idea through...

There are plenty on thingiverse it seems, I looked for "hex tiles".

 

Not sure about using magnets for these though. You would need 6 for each hex tile and I rate the risk of messing up polarities quite high. I think the more traditional approach might be better.

Excellent points on the other Mighty Empires tile designs out there.

 

However, I find the existing designs not to my taste for two reasons:

  1. The tiles are smaller than I would like
  2. The variety of terrain types is not what I want

 

Today's Titanicus progress...

 

Got my 3D printed press mold of my Legio Lupos logo in the post:

...and using some ProCreate and a drop of hair clipper oil as a release agent, was rewarded with this:

 

gallery_8852_16193_101479.jpeg

 

Super chuffed about how it's coming out. Not sure if I want to blend the edges into the carapace or leave them.

 

I'm leaning towards blending after everything cures.

If you're going to magnetize the tiles I'd add the magnet to the bottom of the hex and use sheet metal or a surface with little magnets sticking up, not magnetizing the hex sides.  There's no reason to magnetize the hex sides if they all stick down to the surface of the board, they'll hold each other steady.

Though this looks like a hot mess, there's logic to it...

gallery_8852_16193_180831.jpeg

To make sure my base has good weight, I poured in a metal shot and epoxy mix after I'd placed magnets. The magnets are for my storage system and optional.

What I failed to expect was the metal shot wanting to sick to the surface of the magnets, so I had to clean them off multiple times while the epoxy was curing.

Not perfect, but it will work!

First coat of spackle applied to my Generarium terrain piece.

gallery_8852_16193_129647.jpeg

I've taken off the big "generators" till the first coat of paint goes on...

Needs at least one more application and guard rails for the walkway in front. Maybe a tech priest or two?

Some tanks in the front courtyard would be nice too

Impressive work.

I agree.
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.

Finally got some hobby time - start of the school year for my son has been a challenge.

Used it to take some Chain Rasp bits to add weapon banners to my well-weathered Reaver.

Can't wait to get some paint on it!

I read the Create Your Own Legio rules, and have come up with a draft:

 

Legio Lupos - Wolfpack in Low Gothic - using the new rules of Ryza, and have it narrowed down to:
 
Loyalist Titan Allegiance Ability: Adaptive Tactics - Once per game, change the order given to one Titan at the end of the Damage Control Phase, including Squadron Orders
 
*1 - Legio Trait: Motive Mastery - Add 2 to Command checks for Charge or Full Stride Orders
2 - Legio Trait: Duty and Honour - use Adaptive Tactics once per round
*3 - Legio Trait: Vanguard Fighters - Titans of Scale <=7 add 1 to all To Hit rolls an may be issued Full Stride and First Fire orders without Command check if no friendly Titan within 6"
4 - Legio Stratagem: Blistering March (3) - During Combat Phase, any Titan with Full Stride Order may fire one weapon for +1 Reactor Status level
5 - Legio Specific Wargear: Macro Charges - Blast 3 weapons become Blast 5 with +1 S for +30 points; +2 S if weapon detonates due to damage
 
1 or 3 has got to go, and I'm leaning towards nixing 3, which would not allow my Warhounds to combine shields. Probably going to run Ferrox with Reavers and Warhounds most often. Not 100% sure 5 is the best Wargear option, but sounds useful for not many points. 
 
From a fluff perspective, think loyalist Audax.
 
Would love to hear comments and suggestions...

I agree with dropping #3, I sat there trying to figure out why you’d want that with Warhounds.

While this may not look like much...

gallery_8852_16193_237018.jpeg

It's the base for my Opus Titanica, and was done with my new airbrush set up. (Took a little experimentation to get things right.)

Now I feel it's at a point where I can do Titans (probably Knights first) with it.

This still needs some washes and weathering...

Opus Titanica finished...

Tried some new techniques while painting it, and while it's not perfect, I learned a lot while doing it. Now on to more interesting subjects!

Started work on a 3D printed super-heavy for "future use." ;)

 

This will allow me to work on a few more new painting techniques. Before priming this was bright orange, so it now looks odd to me...

Very nice!

You can see the orange wanting to come through the grey paint, well done denying it the chance :tu:
