So I decided it was time to start a thread for these guys instead of clogging up the TIAT thread

 

So far I have a Warhound and Reaver basically complete, they both need transfers, weathering, and basing.

I'm super stoked with how they are coming out, got some games against an Astorum player coming up soon. I have two more Warhounds and another Reaver to get painted before then.

 

Here's another pic of the finished Reaver:

More pictures to come as I work on things!

EDIT

 

Just realized I never washed/finished the Reaver's toes. Will do that asap!

The Warhound and the Reaver are beautifully painted. How will you decorate their bases?
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.

Honestly I am probably going to go with a ruined city-scape or ash-wastes. Something that wouldn’t draw too much attention away from the titans, so no Martian orange or anything. Leaning towards ash-wastes using agrellan earth painted in greys...or maybe tans.

As I've said in other threads, the orange gradients are superb.

 

I'd love to see some better lit pictures of the black/grey work, as it's tough to see.

I’ve gotta agree, these look phenomenal and I love the color gradients.

One possible thought, maybe a Nuln oil wash of the missile rack and the eyes might help define the detail a little better :)

I feel it would be too tempting to do a cracked, volcanic base with Magna, but it might blend in too much with the armor panels. Good idea for a neutral grey-ash waste to contrast/pick out your lovely gradients.

I don’t see much in the way of Magna around the inter webs but you certainly set a superb standard.

Good idea to create your own thread. I look forward to seeing more of these guys. The two you've made so far look great.


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

Legio Magna are great. Beautiful colour gradients, as everyone has said.
