Titanicus, Yew! Basing and planning.

Yo! I saw some awesome Epic scale 30k era vehicles and it took me a while to track some down through a friend of a friend of a friend kinda thing, now everything's in the one place and I've got a bit of mojo it's time to go (I've had all these kits built since their releases).

The vehicles I got are a bunch of wee Solar Aux stuff. 3 Leman Russ Incinerators, 2 Dracosan, 2 Arvus Lighters (I crashed one on the Warlord base), a Malcador and one of the Baneblade variants with the big plasma.

I've used up 3 on the bases so far and will mix the others into the scenery to help reinforce the immersion in the epic scale.

I just ordered a pair of Warhounds too so my next project is building them, the other Reaver and painting up the full 5 Titan Axiom Maniple with a side of Knights to give me pretty well an exact 1750pts to play.

I'll document the progress on here as I go along and some of the terrain work I do.

Cheers

Jackie

They look really detailed mini-tanks, but are they the original 6mm scale? The new AT is 10mm Scale I think, so these might be a little too small.

It's 8mm for AT and the vehicles are on the upper end of 6mm, definitely not exact enough if it was a scale model but with all the made up Warhammer shit and the variable perspectives of a battlefield, it's close enough. Makes the titans look bigger in any case anyway, I wouldn't have done it if the size difference was reversed as big vehicles and small titans would look pretty trash.

Acastus Knight Porphyrion COMPLETED!!!!!

Acacstus Knight Porhpyrion, easily the biggest and most complex kit build and paint job I have ever done for a gaming miniature. I'm really happy with the result but the 60 hrs I spent on getting it finished kinda baked my noodle. I have no idea how the titan painters get through it! Anyway here are some studio shots, let me know what you think!













Horus Heresy Event Pics - Skulls October 2018

Hey my dudes,

I played at our bi-anually held 'Skulls' Heresy event on the weekend, I didn't get a whole heap of pictures as I always seemed to go full time in my games while we rolled dice and had a good fun bit of banter. It was the most low key iteration of this event I've been to so far, players were largely allowed to choose their game style, points level and table theme and just get after it each round.


I ended up playing a great 1500pt opening game against one of the young bloods, Pat. He was running Iron Hands and the scenario basically had my forces ambushed and deployed in a random fashion with a D6 sending them to one of six 24" squares. I managed to intercept a few things at the right time to give me some breathing room but I had a really hard time hurting his troops and walkers with the -1 to the shooting strength of my weapons. I ended up running away with the victory though in the end, having so many troops who were able to capture the objectives on…

Titanicus - Legio Vulpa Warhounds WIP

Ayo,Put a pin in the painting of the Warlord and Reavers to get these two built up so I can catch them up to the batch before I got too far ahead.There's a dude on Instagram called the Polysmith, I don't know if they blog or not but the converted 28mm Warhound they did just Knicks the posing right out of the park, it's by far the best Titan I've seen pose wise.I took heavy inspiration for the converted AT Warhound I've done from their works, it required cutting both legs into three sections, compressing one as much as possible and extending the other out to pretty well straight. I had to rebuild the pistons front and rear on the extended leg which leads into the feet, they were also pretty extensively modified, I drilled the pins out of each of the toes, trimmed them back and reposed them on a new pin made from styrene rod. I then remade the toe pistons with more styrene and some thin wire.I'm stoked on the pose, it really looks like it's on the go and whil…
