Warlord Titan: Part 1

For those not aware, as soon as I saw the release announcement of the Warlord Titan some months ago I made the declaration on the spot, I must have it. Did some figuring, worked out that I could afford it and had the space/tools/willpower to complete it.
Some complication is to be had by the fact that I will be moving house over the next month or so, so rather than have the box sitting under my desk taunting me for the whole move, I decided to invest in just the Head of the titan to start. It should take me a week or so to get it done, from there I should be well settled into the routine of moving house.
I’ll order the rest of the titan when I have a workspace to build it again 🙂

My package arrived in the mail this morning!
I was kind of lucky to live in a house-share because I was fast asleep at the ridiculous hour of the morning they delivered it..
But in any case, I woke up, discovered the package waiting for me, unboxed, cleansed the parts and anointed them with the holy Abaddon Black Spray Paint…
Then I went out to Games Workshop and set to work.
While everyone else celebrated the official release of Age of Sigmar, I painted and painted and painted..
So far, so good!

The plan broadly is that the head will be orange and white as shown, and most of the armour plates will be blue.
At least a couple plates will be done in red and dedicated to the Mechanicum with cogs and cognis-mechanicum logos.
Armaments’wise I plan to have a volcano cannon, two apocalypse missile launchers and a Saturnine Lascutter to start, I may invest in other weapons depending on performance in battles.
For now though, just the head. On with the new adventures!

Solar Auxilia: Storm Section

Today was a good day, I spent the morning cleaning resin and spraypainting stuff.
Then I went out to Games Workshop and assembled a bunch of things.
Then I spent a couple hours painting…this guy…

Total painting time: about two hours. I’m pretty happy!

The idea was to switch out for a colour palette I don’t normally use, namely flourescent orange and greys, I wound up using my usual metals and washes over most of it anyway but the orange and the moon-rock dusty basing worked out really nicely!
The photos don’t really do it justice I feel.
I also gave him pupils in his eyes..not that you can see them. Originally they were hilariously wide-eyed and staring off towards the left, like he’d just seen some Shenanigans and was determined to kill it with the pistol. I actually broke down laughing at it after realising how silly it looked, then went and narrowed his eyes with more rakarth to reduce the “kill you with my mind” stare a bit.
I think the result looks good when it’s not in a uber-high resolution photo 😛
