Warlord Titan Photos

I'm still struggling to get photos of this beast. It was glaring bright in DC today, so even with the blinds closed I couldn't keep the reflections down. My plan for tomorrow is to just build a giant light box, so I'm not at the whim of the time of day. Still, I'm fairly happy with this photo, even if the legs are out of focus.

Designing a Table For Epic Armageddon

I've just started playing around with layouts on this 2x2 board. Eventually there will be four of them to make up a table.  Having cast some foundations it makes sense now to smash them up and place them into the ruined city board. I may make a mould of the this whole 2x2 and then just add buildings and debris as needed.

Warlord Titan Holding A Banana

The banana causes slipping damage on natural sixes to other war engines with the Lord of War keyword.

Warlord Titan Shield Heraldry

I think the shields really tie the heraldry together.  Now it is time for environmental effects and some good photos. The guy is fairly camouflaged against my messy paint desk. Who knew this camo would work. :)

Warlord Titan: Paint Chipping + Torso Weapons

I might take a pass at highlighting the under side of each paint chip. There are just too many to make that enjoyable. Despite that, I am really enjoying all the minor progress being made. I imagine that most people wouldn't recognize the changes if I showed before and after pictures, but I know what is being accomplished, and there is satisfaction in that. I just wish it were easier to see the titan crew and cockpit. I put a lot of work into something that will never be seen.

The fist is now paint chipped, and ready for knuckle lettering, and the top guns are mostly complete. (some paint sloughed off due to resin issues..that will be a pain) Once I have the two shields painted, this guy could walk.

Maybe it is time to bring this over to the Springfield GW store....

Warlord Titan Paint Chipping...Forever...

Paint chipping has started. This is going to take a while. On the other hand, I really enjoy doing it. I may pivot to painting the missing bits like the las cannons and bolt guns in a bit, but for now I chip.

Warlord Titan Power Fist WIP

This is very WIP at the moment. The oils are still wet and haven't been tidied up, but look at this thing! This is a huge power fist. It is the size of a human hand. What an insane model the Warlord titan is. I guess the only question now is which four letter word to paint across the knuckles.

Warlord Titan: Here Comes The Gun

I started working on one of the arm weapons yesterday and realized I needed a hoist to make it easier to paint. Beasts like this kit, require so many weird work arounds to make building possible. It is a lot of fun.

Also, here is a head update. I've started adding some rust/debris streaking. The other panels have not be touched yet besides pin washing.

Warlord Pin Washes

I'm finally at the enamel phase, where I get to add pin washes around all of the panels. Once they are done, I glue them on move on to the next panel. By the end of the week all of the panels should be completed, and the streaking can commence!

Warlord Head

I've had some primer issues as well as lacquer issues, so the only progress I have really made is in blocking the head and gun cowling colors. Unfortunately, I can't get paint to stick to the gold trim on parts of the gun cowlings, so I might be forced to scrub them down and repaint. This would not be terrible, since they already have a crackly texture due to GW varnish going on poorly.
