The Titan is well-painted and detailed. How will you decorate his base?

Thank you! The customer is torn between mars desert or a pale sand style desert environment. I'm going to do schemes for both on separate bases to help him decide.

Thanks!

 

 

 

The Warlord has seen a little progress;

I've started the final armour panels since these photos as well as started to gravel up the bases across the maniple. Excited to see him finished as well as begin the Mortis warhounds, as well as finish my own Maniple - which I've started the final warhound.

I've made some progress with my own Legio, too. 

 

49988254533_e781e8e077_c.jpg

 

 

Struggling a little with the basing scheme. I was aiming for volcanic style black sand and gravel, its almost impossible to highlight. Considering the weathering powder look now, followed by possibly snow. Thoughts?

 

 

Once these are finished, I'll just have the tokens to paint and the contents of the starter set will be finished.

Looking good. For the bases, I wonder if it might be interesting to introduce some colours other than the black and white you’ve mostly got going on. A desert sand might look good, or possibly red Martian dust. Black and white titans on black and white bases will look pretty stark. That might be what you want, of course.

An alternative would be something urban. Check out bbj’s Mortis theead on this board for awesome examples.

Basing with granite rock formations might look nice. Add some trees or vegetation for color. Also breaks the base out of 2D.

Hmm...I like the idea of a city totally taken back by nature. So ruins in combination with heavy growth. Could make for a nice contrast with your Titans and Knights.

I did originally plan for them to look stark, but seeing it done I'm not sure I like the outcome. I'll check out the thread, thank you!

I'm not sure I'll add vegetation, I've seen it done fantastically but I'm not 100% sure its for me. I'll have a think! 

 

 

I've started basing the Mortis stuff.. and I'm experimenting with some brown colouring on my Nivalis bases

 

49989421711_54a493ec40_c.jpg

 

I'm still aiming for dark bases, but I think they need some colour. When they're dry I'll post more pictures.

Good imagination. It may work best for Mechanicus Knights, the backstory being the Knights are there to support an Explorator's efforts to recover an STC fragment and/or archeotech artifact from a long-abandoned hive city.

Nivalis have been updated now.. bases are changed. The ice giants cometh..

I'm sure I'll find more details to add to them as these kits are incredible, but for the moment they're done and certainly game ready. Just need to have my first game now!

Apparently the US Army will name their new Styker missile tank the Manticore (Because of 40k) if enough people vote for it. You know what to do:

Double post - but I got around to getting an updated photo of the Mortis and Malinax commission;

Customer is happy, think I'll go back over for some more detailing and weathering but they're getting there. I've started the warhounds but they're just silver and black atm, so no need for photos.

Most pleasing to see, the subtler basing fits your Nivalis well. Considering vegetation, you could try adding some shrubs and such but give them a brown or red colour to make the Mortis bases livelier without distracting the colour harmony?

It's not upto me what happens with the Mortis stuff, but I'm tempted to add some more detail to my Nivalis.

I don't have much progress as I've run out of white spirit for thinning oil paints, so I can't work on the Mortis warhounds just yet - but they're painted in and awaiting weathering and details, but no photos yet. 


I got some individual and detail photos of my Nivalis, though, as well as started to name the engines. I've decided to lean into Norse mythology for the names (as they're the Ice Giants) and gone for names based in Jotunheim. 

 

 

Firstly we have Hravrundr - Reaver class

50047892052_2c3b319101_c.jpg

 

 

Going forward with the legio I'm going to build and paint some more weapon options for the engines I have, when lockdown ends I hope to get a few games in and then build onto the Legio further. Right now I'm considering order more Knights of various class, I had a lot of fun building and painting them for both legios and eager to add more.

Evocative work, that's a gorgeous legio. Have you considered chopping up some of the toes in future so they hang with gravity, for poses like Hravrundr?
