Adeptus Titanicus Is A Go

So thanks to the guys at Triple Helix Wargames. We are going to be able to have a series of posts based around slow growing ourselves some Titans

Make sure you check out THG you could say low prices are in their DNA……I am not sorry for that 😀

Anyway bad puns aside, with the preorder going live (http://www.triplehelixwargames.co.uk/pre-orders/ ) I figured I should plan out what I have in mind.

Much has been said about the cost of the Grand Master box and it’s price, yes it’s a decent deal considering the individual prices.

However I am one of those gamers that cant outlay that in a single month. So we are going slow grow with the idea of 1 or 2 purchases a month.

The idea being I can get a force (maniple I believe) to call my own. But stretched over a couple of months to tie into the releases for the other titans.

With this in mind I will be picking up the ruleset box to start with (and review of course) what this will allow me to do is get to grips with the rules on the cheap(er) level but also allow me to plan a force out before shiny things are bought.

After this is a new system and no-one truly knows what is going to work or not.

This slow grow will also allow me to build the other titans as they drop and wait to get the warlord near the end as that is the showcase model and should be a reward after all, not something you start with 😀

A side note I won’t be touching the AT terrain as I can DIY my own but also I am imagining 40K is going to work a treat as surely the imperium has some magnificent structures dedicated to the emperor even some that dwarf titans 😉

Plus I want to do one of those celebration roads seen in HH books of giant statues of marines…aka marine on plinths.

Let me know what you think and should be an interesting journey.

Great Unclean Slug One…part 2

For those keeping up my GUO is getting there from where it was in post number 1 GUO1

So I am at the stage now where I think he is done! As hopefully you will see..

The next stages I had to do were the arms which you can see came out very very well, thanks to some blue stuff that let me make some molds of the arms just to help me get the scale OK, as I was nervous about getting them right especially the right bend/lengths.

The other side of things was to ensure the size of him matched the official model.

As you can see I think I have that nailed from the Birdseye view, so at least my original sketches are measuring up OK 🙂

I also ensured that I kept checking things sat OK and as you can see the hands are almost perfect fits as is the head, however I then knew that the belly needed to be more substantial!

Then the fun could really start, the green stuffing of the details, as you can see I did go mental but hopefully not too mental that details are lost in the crazy!

But then I also wanted to make sure I didn’t create something too large and next to his brother Rotigus I think we have this nailed 🙂

So something I did learn from this is Green Stuff is shiny and can be difficult to actually see some details. So anyone out there wanting to give it a go on any sort of big scale then make sure you undercoat the model at a stage you start to go green blind. As it helps immensely.

Which leads me to the stage I am now, some more work on bits I had missed before undercoating.

The spots of white allowed me say I am happy with an area, as I am now at that stage in which I could keep adding more and more detail when really I wont get any benefit for it other than I dont get to paint him.

So soon he will be hit with paint and hopefully I dont mess him much.

Cog Building 101 – Onager

Work continues a sort of pace with my Dark Mechanicus, and yes you may cry out that my Onager is looking very unchaosy…

I want some of my more vehicle type units to keep the ad mech look without going overboard with the tentacles etc.

The Onager is one example of that but also he is magnetised up so soon I will have some extra bits that make him into a count as Defiler 😀

Keep your eyes out for that 😉

Hellbrute

So my Fallen knights needed some firepower help. I had a Hellbrute model but he was not close enough to the look of the rest of the army.

Well I had some spare bits and things sort of happened. Yes he is closer to Chaos than the imperium but O am sure I will be knocking up another one to better suit the Grey side of the army .

Draigo

So I wanted to knock up a Driago model to do with my Fallen Knights and well seemed really bad to use the official model on a Fallen concept.

Cue a bits box raid and here he is. The Custodes range offers some great possibilities for Draigo and shame I didn’t have a spare one as I think a bigger than normal Draigo would have been pretty cool looking.
