  1. Inspired by the great Blackadder (see here for one of the best build logs on the internet), I have been spending a week or two drawing up my own vision of the Imperator-class Titan. Obviously this is a great deal easier to do in the 3d memory of a computer than physically in real life, however nonetheless I present to you all the "Pillar of Terra's Wrath"... In doing this modelling work, I have attempted to match fluff with appearance. the Imperator is, as depicted here, a little under 70 m tall, from feet to top of the central tower (ignoring the dome on top). The converts to slightly over 227 feet tall, compared to the 32.76 m / 107' 6" of the Mars pattern Warlord. At 40k scale then, the Imperator would be approx. 1.32 m / 4' 4", whereas the Forge World warlord stands approx. 22.5" tall. This makes sense to me, as if the Imperator can mount primary Warlord weapons en masse on it's carapace there surely must be a significant size difference. In some images there is a Land Raider for scale... so the Imperator isn't as big as one might first image!

  3. Been taking a break from posting here, moving to Instagram instead, since my hobby ADHD makes it kind of incoherent to keep a log. Now, however, with the release of GWs best models in years (subjective, but hey), it seems I'm again on track to actually produce some kind of coherent, and maybe even playable, army again. So, already finished after months of slogging progress, the Warlord Titan 'Incantamentum Mori': Kind of rusty with the forum posting skills, so hope the images worked out alright. Next up is a banner of two Cerastus Knights, one is 95% finished so should be up pretty soon, fingers crossed. Feels so weird completing a model in a morning after this humongous beast of a kit. Cheers, BTB
  4. Thought I'd give him his own thread seeing as I'm proud of how he turned out and because I didn't really take many W.I.P shop. Here is my Adeptus Titanicus Warlord Titan - Cerberus of the Hell Hounds Legion. Magnetised Weapons and for now finished and ready for war. Hope you guys like him. -Noctem Cultor
  5. Yesterday, my rules set and the first Warlord titan arrived. I immediately started building it, and it's been a blast. I am planning to build the full maniple of Legio Tempestus during the Schim of Mars, meaning the following list (weapon loadouts subject to change upon re-reading Mechanicum). Later on, when more weapon options and types for knights are available, I might add a few support banners from House Taranis. Warlord || Deus Tempestus || Indias Cavalerio, the Storm Lord Sunfury Plasma Annihilator Arioch Power Claw Paired Laser Blasters (Carapace) Status: DONE Warlord || Tharsis Hastatus || Vlad Suzak Belicosa Volcano Cannon Belicosa Volcano Cannon Apocalypse Missile Launchers (Carapace) Status: DONE Reaver || Arcadia Fortis || Jan Mordant Laser Blaster Laser Blaster Turbo Laser Destructor (Carapace) Status: DONE Reaver || Metallus Cebrenia || Kel Sharaq Gatling Blaster Laser Blaster Apocalypse Missile Launcher (Carapace) Status: DONE Warhound || Raptoria || Zafir Kasim Vulcan Mega-bolter Plasma Blastgun Status: DONE Warhound || Vulpus Rex || Basek Turbo Laser Destructor Turbo Laser Destructor Status: DONE Warhound || Astrus Lux || Lamnos Vulcan Mega-bolter Inferno Gun Status: DONE Points total: 2280 Additionally, I have the following three engines out of the project scope: Reaver || Lator Bronte Gatling Blaster Reaver Titan Power Fist Apocalypse Missile Launcher (Carapace) Status: DONE Reaver || unnamed Melta Cannon Reaver Titan Chainfist Apocalypse Missile Launcher (Carapace) Status: Boxed, weapons built Warhound || Lupus Rex Turbo Laser Destructor Plasma Blast Gun Status: Primed, basecoated Adjusted points total: 3125 This is going to be a log of my progress, and yesterday evening I was able to finish the magnetization, posing and skeletal build of Deus Tempestus. It's a great kit, with mold lines and gates cleverly located so that even the cleanup (which I normally despise) work isn't too bad. Tonight, I'm going to be basecoating and detailing the base. I'm going for the original colour scheme, with cobalt blue plating, silver trimmings, and black and white areas to break it up a little. Feedback is greatly appreciated, and here's a question to you: Does anyone have a recipe for cobalt blue, preferably with GW or Vallejo Model Air colours? I'm too deep in my comfort zone of dark green, bone and black, so I never experimented with blues. Thank you in advance.
  6. As the title asks thought I'd share up custom scenery. Titan Repair Station (Sector Mechanicus and Armiger frame) Servohaulers set (Skitarii bits) Skyshield Landing pad (BFG base flipped) So what are you using? -Noctem Cultor
  7. WARNING - If you are a gentlemen or lady who prides themselves on fair gaming, careful painting and legitimate modeling - please read no further. If you are a gretchin bastard with 300+ dusty Empire, Ork and Lizardmen models, a titan built from wood and an Imperial Knight that very closely resembles Master Chief from Halo. This is the tainted list for you. The following filth will wipe clean any Astartes fool even if you give him an extra 1000 points...

Having them surround your Titan + Knights will render them immune to any deep striking meltas or chainfists. They will tarpit anything effectively, are scoring and do not confer victory points upon death. The porphyrion and warhound bring far too many pie plates to the table. On top of this you will be summoning more twisted chaps on to the field, I managed to summon a Bloodthirster, not that it was needed... GLHF
  8. Back in September of 2016, I posted my WIP of a Warlord Titan of the Legio Mortis. At the time I was happy with the end result, but since then I've (somehow) managed to improve my painting skills and learn some new techniques. So around May last year I decided to start again. What followed was weeks of freezing the model to separate the parts and soaking them in IPA baths to remove the paint. I wish I'd found the delights of using Biostrip 20 much sooner than I did which would have made the paint stripping process SO much easier, but that's one of the lessons learnt. After several months (including countless hobby distractions, such as the Death Guard) I finally managed to reassemble the titan with surprisingly few repairs needed as a result of breaking it apart. Over the past few weeks I've been slowly repainting it, using some of the newly learnt skills and techniques - the most important of which is........... TAKE YOUR TIME YOU MUPPET!!!! Looking back I really did do such an awful rush job the first time round which did not do the model (or associated cost) any justice. I'm now at the stage where I've nearly finished the main "skeleton" and am pleased with the result. I've yet to add oil stains, rust streaks and other dirt/grime to it but I like the direction it's going in. The armour will be the last thing to complete, as although I've registered the engine with the ToC as Legio Metalica this time around, I'm trying to wait until Adeptus Titanicus is released in case there's another Legio that catches my eye, before committing to a colour scheme. As always, the idea of posting in the WIP section is to serve as a motivation for me to keep it going, as well as sharing techniques (and lessons learnt) with the fraters of this board. And of course to open myself up to criticism and feedback (be gentle....) By way of a quick comparison, here's an image of the shoddy job I did on the metalwork the first time: Thanks for looking.
  9. So, I remember at one of the Weekenders there was a lot of talk about the upcoming Adeptus Titanicus, and that it was coming soon-ish. But since then, I have not heard a peep! We've heard more about Necromunda at this rate, another big shocker. Part of me is worried that they've bitten off more that they can chew and that the release is being delayed. Anyway, has anyone heard anything about when Titanicus may be coming? Or at least any guesses of when? http://pro.bols.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/AdeptusMech-4.jpg
  10. Im not sure I've posted in here before but my friend Krakendoomcool has encouraged me to post my final photos form my WIP thread here. Its a Christmas present for my friend, we went halves on Renegade box set and I offered to convert his Knight for his world Eaters for Christmas... I've probably spent 100+ hours on this. There is a condensed version of the whole process I documented on Bolter over on the Blog Here I hope you all like it, I'm very proud of it and I cant wait for him to open it in a couple of days!
  11. Hey, if anyone can help it would be great. I build LEGO 40K models and I have my sights on a Warlord Titan next. However, I need dimensions to properly scale it and I have vet to find them anywhere on the internet. Does anyone have one they could send me sizes or know a place that does? Thanks

  13. Hi all first post for me. So I used to be in 40k quite a few years ago, well Rogue Trader ago. So just getting back into the hobby and trying to get my Son off a tablet and doing something else as well So we have a small army for Horus Heresy and we both wanted to have a titan or two, so ive spent literally hundreds of hours modeling and atl least the same printing. So I have taken inspiration from lots of far more talented people, including a certain person on this board who is making a Emperor Titan, as his 3 pilots are very cool (please forgive me) I might have used those guys with some minor modeling to get them to fit my Mars titans. So I said to my son, he gets the first mostly successful test prints and I then adjust as required for subsequent attempts. My aim is high detail, ease of putting it together, for example I absolutely love the details in the forge world model, so there is a lot of that in my design with extras, but I dont fancy spending 2 or 3 months to then fit the thing together lol. Please feel free to critique etc as im almost finished making the bits (its arms and arm weapons and some Armour left to do) So enough with my writting, let me upload some pictures so far. (now its a lot time since i shared images on a site,so i might mess this bit up lol) Head <a href="https://ibb.co/PzYhHpq"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/TqT83X9/IMG-20191216-210553.jpg" alt="IMG-20191216-210553" border="0"></a> <a href="https://ibb.co/BGn3Vcf"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/G9Hpvnd/IMG-20191216-210544.jpg" alt="IMG-20191216-210544" border="0"></a> <a href="https://ibb.co/L1cn2mG"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/0r6hdTw/IMG-20191212-213919.jpg" alt="IMG-20191212-213919" border="0"></a> Main part of the Torso <a href="https://ibb.co/QvTc9pG"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/SwMxN5p/IMG-20200111-123811.jpg" alt="IMG-20200111-123811" border="0"></a> <a href="https://ibb.co/RC4Q6jk"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/vJvLdX6/IMG-20200111-123824.jpg" alt="IMG-20200111-123824" border="0"></a> <a href="https://ibb.co/mNd4Qtp"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/dmXDn6Z/IMG-20200111-123835.jpg" alt="IMG-20200111-123835" border="0"></a> <a href="https://ibb.co/DDnDsry"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/N6z6QTP/IMG-20200111-123800.jpg" alt="IMG-20200111-123800" border="0"></a><br /><a target='_blank' href='https://poetandpoem.com/interpretation-of-the-listeners-by-walter-de-la-mare'>the listeners by walter de la mare</a><br /> So of the parts for the legs <a href="https://ibb.co/BLWKfXd"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/dBCJfd1/IMG-20200304-061516.jpg" alt="IMG-20200304-061516" border="0"></a> <a href="https://ibb.co/hLS5mkf"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/NtMhyXS/IMG-20200218-101131.jpg" alt="IMG-20200218-101131" border="0"></a> <a href="https://ibb.co/HNf5Yxk"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/JxwD2yM/IMG-20200218-101136.jpg" alt="IMG-20200218-101136" border="0"></a> <a href="https://ibb.co/1dL66DG"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/b2PJJS5/IMG-20200218-101142.jpg" alt="IMG-20200218-101142" border="0"></a> <a href="https://ibb.co/tc3xZvH"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/rMvcbzQ/IMG-20200218-101151.jpg" alt="IMG-20200218-101151" border="0"></a> <a href="https://ibb.co/HDmFV32"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/XZm2bM4/IMG-20200218-101159.jpg" alt="IMG-20200218-101159" border="0"></a> <a href="https://ibb.co/QjV8wQT"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/0VLBb26/IMG-20200218-174800.jpg" alt="IMG-20200218-174800" border="0"></a><br /><a target='_blank' href='https://clueyblog.com/which-hairstyle-suits-me'>upload picture to find hairstyle</a><br /> My Son building his set of legs (Took about 1.5 hours to get them complete, he can be a bit lazy so lack of sanding etc. ) <a href="https://ibb.co/R7PDZfj"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/7bV18Pk/IMG-20200217-185708.jpg" alt="IMG-20200217-185708" border="0"></a> <a href="https://ibb.co/CW60fjG"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/wY76fnm/IMG-20200217-185715.jpg" alt="IMG-20200217-185715" border="0"></a> <a href="https://ibb.co/KNmsHvD"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/ZHNgCDS/IMG-20200217-185733.jpg" alt="IMG-20200217-185733" border="0"></a> <a href="https://ibb.co/d0yKw0b"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/SXpv4XQ/IMG-20200224-162653.jpg" alt="IMG-20200224-162653" border="0"></a> <a href="https://ibb.co/2ZLW0pG"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/QDqp7xy/IMG-20200224-162658.jpg" alt="IMG-20200224-162658" border="0"></a> <a href="https://ibb.co/HV6zL23"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/xDWjKsd/IMG-20200224-162737.jpg" alt="IMG-20200224-162737" border="0"></a> <a href="https://ibb.co/DKWHdVR"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/GPp4mx5/IMG-20200224-162753.jpg" alt="IMG-20200224-162753" border="0"></a> <a href="https://ibb.co/j6V6WGt"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/dWbWL6Z/IMG-20200224-162800.jpg" alt="IMG-20200224-162800" border="0"></a> <a href="https://ibb.co/RzRbPgN"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/V2f9DLx/IMG-20200224-170752.jpg" alt="IMG-20200224-170752" border="0"></a> <a href="https://ibb.co/r6Lt8Rm"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/tsNhjT4/IMG-20200224-170759.jpg" alt="IMG-20200224-170759" border="0"></a> I will as and when I get free time (life gets in the way) ill upload version 2 which is mine as I build her, I did this morning spend 2 hours sending all my leg bits so I can start catching up with my son on the build.
  14. Ok, it's about time I put some of my finished work up here. I started painting Legio Tempestus back in June 2019 for a local escalation league, scrambling to get 1000-1250 points together ahead of a start date in the first week of July. As things played out, I was the only person to complete all six weeks of games, but it's probably an understatement to say I was hooked ;) So, why Tempestus? Well, waaaaay back in the day Bell of Lost Souls did a Horus Heresy supplement, and one of the guys painted up a Reaver in Tempestus' colors. I loved the retro blue armor & shard camo look. Painting lots of checkers & shard camo was going to be a personal technical challenge, and I figured I really wanted to go retro for my Adeptus Titanicus force for that nostalgia feel. I've been adding to this force off and on for about 8-9 months now, with two more Reavers in WIP and a Warbringer planned too. After that, I may bulk out my House Malinax auxilia a bit more, but once that's about rounded out, it'll be time to work on some Loyalist scum for an OpFor. Without further ado, here's a walkthrough of everything I've painted to date, in order of descending scale! I. Warlord Titans: The boys, scanning for targets. Magnets at the neck, shoulders and biceps for ease of part swaps. Stormbringer is my latest titan, and I'm pretty happy with what I've been able to do with this guy. In my mind, the overall battlegroup Princeps Senioris rides to battle in this Warlord, leading his forces and crushing the forces of the False Omnissiah. Kingslayer was my first Warlord and sixth titan overall. As with the pattern you'll see below, first titan of the series gets the split carapace scheme. II. Reaver Titans: The first two Reavers I've painted, with two more on the way! Everyone's magnetized at the elbow, carapace, and neck so I can easily swap around weapons and even cockpits. My initial plan for the escalation league was a Venator Maniple, hence turbolasers and a volcano cannon. My fifth titan. I knew I would be doing close combat Reavers eventually, but for my initial force, I wanted to go heavy on ranged gun platforms. III. Warhound Titans: *TEMPESTUS* let the dogs out (sorry; I couldn't resist). I magnetized the weapons at the elbow where the ball sockets click into the guns, but left the heads attached since I couldn't really swap them easily. The first pack I deployed. You'll note that in addition to the split carapace, every Warhound has its left shin split between checkers and shard camo. I wanted to be able to pick out my Warhound packs easily on the battlefield, so Warhound #3 was the first to get a white cockpit and a full shard camo carapace. This makes it a bit easier to represent Mantellum Fulmen, Tempestus' character titan, as well. IV. House Malinax: More on these guys later. The Acastus can swap weapon arms, but the missile pods are locked in place, as are the secondary guns. The Cerastus Lancers are mono-build; I didn't really see the need for Acheron or Castigator builds yet, and I'll definitely be using ~2-4 Lancers often. I'm proud of how I built the Questoris - you can't swap the secondary stubbers & meltaguns, but I magnetized everyone at the elbow and the carapace top, so when I finally get around to painting power gauntlets and missile pods I'll be able to run any and all gear combinations :) V. Objective Markers & Battlefield Assets: "Hey, you know what would be cool? What if I made tokens to represent Titan-Hunter Infantry, Forward Observers, or even Scatterable Mines...?" Yeah, those were fun projects. Also, I decided to convert Aeronautica Imperialis hex tokens and Adeptus Titanicus bunkers into numbered objective markers for use with Graham Sanders' Matched Play Missions (see his Claws & Fists blog here). I went a little overboard - I think I only needed four - but hey, why not? So if you made it this far, thanks for putting up with my amateur photography skills and for taking a look at what I've done to date for Legio Tempestus! I'll be adding to this as I get more engines painted, and we'll see where this goes!
