Of course, after the new Titan is released, all bets are off on being done with anything - Maniple, Legio, debt payments ;)

You can say that again. I can't wait to see what it is!

I'm getting there on the Warlord. Not super stoked about the pose but thems the breaks. I may have purchased another Reaver for the second force. teehee.gif  The Warbringer may actually wind up a part of that force as well. Time will tell.

The Warlord is well-painted.

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.

You can always use some green stuff to the base to make a little hill to level him out if it's annoying you?

 

The head actually works really well on a Warlord. Any chance of some more angles?

I agree that maybe tilting it back a little on the base could improve the pose. It's not bad though.


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

I had a similar problem on a running Gallant. The weight was too far forward, so he looked like he was about to topple over. I just put him on a little ramp.

Thank you Bjorn!

I think the head works better on a Warlord than a Warbringer to be honest...I'm biased though. I will get some more angles tonight or tomorrow night, waiting on the base to dry!

 

I agree that maybe tilting it back a little on the base could improve the pose. It's not bad though.

I appreciate it. We'll see what the base looks like once I get him stuck to it, currently drying.

I think he may look better once he is on the base, different angles make him look like he is prowling. We'll see.

I got some oil paints and spent an hour after work today mucking around with them. Here are the results:

It's still drying but I'm very pleased with the results. Not too stoked about the lighter "chips" I did with the splatter technique or some of the painted chips. so those are some things to work on. Anyone got some tips on that stuff?  I DEFINITELY need to remember to seal the area before I work with the oils.

 

So. That all being said I may be starting a Vulturum force. sweat.gif

I’ve had a lot of free time lately, and I can be a bit obsessive. This is the result. The airbrush speeds things up considerably.

Those oils look great, very different style to your Victorum. The shape of the chips are good, they look like bits where the armour has been rent or torn.

 

I'd second the warbringer head looking cool on the warlord.
