Legio Astraman Logo sheet

Hi Everybody, I have had a fun week with my newly arrived copy of Adeptus Titanicus from way back in 1988! I’ve been going over many of the Titan legions from the box and picking another good looking scheme for the Loyalists. I settled on the Legio Astraman (The Morning Stars), with their lively green […]

TUTORIAL: Death Guard in 7 Easy Steps

Hi everybody! I’ve recieved a lot of requests for information on how I painted my Death Guard Army so here is how you do it. First of all, you cant get a decent result if you don’t have a goal. That goal for me was the image of a “Pre-Heresy Death Guard” from the Index […]

Legio Tempestor Reaver Complete

Hi Everybody, Here she is, finished at last. It took about a week of solid work, but the Stormlords Reaver is ready for action. She is painted in her Heresy-Era traitor scheme, so she is still bearing the logos of the Collegia Titanica (who thought THEY were the true heroes of the Imperiaum) and her […]

Battle Report: Mega Battle

Lord Commander Laurentious ordered his men to make ready for advance. In unison, dozens of Death Guard Legionnaires shouldered their weapons and made way for the front lines. Along his left flank, Blood Angel allies were moving out themselves, illuminated in the pre-dawn darkness by the flares of their jump packs as they bounded forward […]

Project: Titan Reinforcements – Part 4

Now we’re are getting somewhere! I got in a decent chunk of work last night and here is today’s progress. I have finalized the upper body camo pattern with the crisp black edgeing between the color shapes, and in general have gone over and tightened up a lot of small detail on the higher areas. […]

Project: Titan Reinforcements – Part 3

Well, it was a productive night. I started in on some of the smaller details such as tubing and the ribbed joint covers. The big thing however was the first pass on the Legio Tempestor geometric “camo” scheme. Boy was that a bear! I still have tons to do like the weapons, shading and highlighting, […]

Project: Titan Reinforcements – Part 2

Here’s today’s quick update: I got the Reaver base coated in its intended scheme. It is pretty plain, but the last of the old ebay paintjob is gone forever. I sprayed it black, then drybrushed up with some Tinbitz for the base hull. The armoured plates used the new GW Foundation Paints: Fenris Grey with […]

Project: Titan Reinforcements – Part 1

Hi everybody! Look what showed up in the mail. I snagged a Reaver and a Warhound off of ebay, and managed to get all my minor projects wrapped up in time. So far I have disassembled the reaver, and realigned its feet so it stands upright. It was leaning really far forward when it arrived. […]

Death Guard: Terminator Commander and Rhino

Hi everybody, I’ve been pretty busy over the past few days. I gave myself a strict deadline to get all my Death Guard models done before my new Titan arrives tomorrow, so I’ve been head-down all weekend. But all is well that ends well. Here is what 3 days of frantic painting gets me: On […]
