So thought i would post a thread of my slowly growing AT force, which i'm hoping to get finished before lock-down ends (and then play my first game afterwards). I started with the Grandmaster Edition when it came out, built all the titans and knights in it, and then got fed up with it all - partly due to not knowing what to do with the bases - and benched it all up to the start of this year. My main local opponent has been hassling me to get it done though, and i have finally repented and here we are.

 

Currently i have 2 Warlords, I Psi-Titan, 1 Warbringer, 2 Reavers, 2 Warhounds, 6 Questoris, 3 Lancers, and 1 Acastus built and in differing stages of completion. My main aim is to get the Titans finished first and then move onto the knights afterwards.

 

I have gone for Tempetus mainly due to the fact that the transfers were available (my first choice would have been Astorum as that is what my 28mm scale Warhound is) but i am actually really glad i went for them now. I'm really enjoying all the checks on them!

 

Anyway here are a few pictures of the slow progress of a few of the titans:

And here is where we are with the bases:

And then it will be onto these little guys:

Anyway i will post some more once there is a bit more to show, and if you have any questions or comments please let me know.
 
Best wishes

Awesome work! I love the bases. And the checker pattern is exellent!

Railroad tracks are for some reason rarely seen on titan bases, not sure why. They work well and provide an instant reference to think "whoa that's big".

 

Looking good on the titans too, never too much checkers in these circles :D

I thought Mars had maglev trains but other planets may still have tracked railroads, they really do improve the sense of scale.

Speaking of scale, what scale are those rail tracks, Z or something else?

 

What's you plan for weathering the Titans?

Great bases!!! Getting a sense of scale is the really difficult part of AT18, you've nailed it :tu:

Great work, very nicely done! The checkers are perfect and the bases are super cool! Z scale tracks?

Thanks everybody! To answer those who asked the tracks are indeed Z gauge, which i got off Ebay, iv;e been looking out for other bits like trucks but they are so expensive i think these are going to be it for now. I also agree with Fajita that Mars should have Maglev trains, my justification though is that they probably wouldnt use these in mining areas and would prefer old fashioned trains.

 

Have to admit the checkers are done using transfers, i tip my hat to those who do them by hand!

This is very nice. Great application of the transfers, particularly on the Reaver's hull.

 

I must admit that I first thought your bases were a tray of cookies. I may subconsciously want a cookie.


C+C always welcome on my Titanic Plog. Should really be painting Crimson Fists.

I just bought cookies to munch on at work since there's no one else here to bother me. blush.png

 

Is this sorta the kind of track you got?  Seems pricey but I can't find much else on Amazon.

Now i definitely want a cookie as well...

 

Those are very similar Fajita, but they are certainly more expensive. I Got 60cm of flexible track for £8, but this was back in 2018.

Good to know, I'm keeping my bases really simple so I can add something later.
