Not much of an update I'm afraid.

I had a spare Quake Cannon knocking about so figured I'd add it to the yellow Warlord. However, to fit their theme I wanted a combat attachment :D I mean, a Bayonet longer than a Leman Russ is a thing, right?



I also made and painted some more weapons for the Reavers AND added a Vulcan Mega Bolter to the back of the Warlords Power fist because, maybe, one day they might make rules for it?

Done!! Finally.  ::)


Vetus Gloria






I tried a new technique with the plasma coils. I like it but it doesn't look anything like the tutorial. Hopefully by the time I've painted the other 5 Sunfury Annihilators and the 8 Warhound Plasma guns I'll be better at it :D

Thanks mate, appreciated :D I did. It's an amazing kit. Loads of little details.

I might do a Volcano Cannon for his right arm and another Plasma cannon for his left arm before I move on to the next maniple. It'll give me some options to game with....... if we ever get a game  ???

It's not lol. I haven't done this much painting in ages. I've painted almost 6000 points in Titanicus and cant remember the last time I've actually completed a force - if completed is the right word as I still have loads of Titans unbuilt in the cupboard of shame.

However some times it is nice to have an incentive or a deadline. I haven't worked on any scenery since the lock down as, what's the point? Playing Necromunda almost religiously every Sunday gave me loads of incentive to keep tinkering and adding to my board.

Swings and roundabouts though!! Hobby is Hobby at the end of the day! At least I'm still doing something!

I've not had much time to myself this last week so I haven't been able to spend any 'decent' time hobby-ing. Despite this I still had the itch to apply paint to something! ANYTHING! so I went and worked on some tiny buildings. I actually had quite a bit of fun painting these up despite them just being Grey dry brushes. I still have some roads to paint and the 'flat top' building WILL have a statue on it when I can source an old 2nd Edition Marine from somewhere.






The details on the front of the ruins are just Imperial Knight icons.

Nice terrain! By the way, have you considered combining the Troublemaker Games ruins with GW's Titanicus building kits?

That's cool Malika. I haven't thought of combining the sets! Not that I have any GW sets but I can always add to the little town :D

I built my second Warlord for the White Titans.I wanted a bit more of a dynamic action pose......... however, once again I messed up at the hip joint so instead of charging forward he's more plodding slowly towards the enemy. Which has it's own charm I think. I still like the pose as it has a feel of 'weight' about it. I also chopped off each of his toes on his right foot to reposition them.







Also!! KNIGHTS!!!!

I needed a little 'add on' to my yellow/Red Titans as they weren't quite 1500pts as a force yet.... yet. I will do another Reaver. I'll probably end up doing some more of these Knights as well. I'd love to do some Armigers for them and recreate my 40k Knight army :D

Does anyone happen to know if there are any rules for Knght Crusaders and/or Knight Gallants?
