Update Warlord Titan No.326- Avatar Belli, 16-8-17

More progress on Avatar Belli!  Unfortunately, the right leg had an issue and had to be re-glued, which changed the Titan's balance and stance.  Paolo was able to fix it ultimately and once a custom base is made, all will be right again.


UPDATE PICTURES:



The chest and upper arm guards are coming along quite well.



Definitely getting closer and closer to completion.



All of the colors work together.


The pose is great and the Warlord is looking deadly, the re-positioned right leg won't be a factor once the Titan is based.

News Flash - Adeptus Titanicus Info form the Forgeworld Openday 2017

Hi all,

Yesterday I attended the FW openday 2017.  It was a interesting day, quite lacking on new models (mainly because a lot of the models were released on the day), but great on banter with the designers.
The news I have gleaned on Adeptus Titanicus (AT) comes from Andy Hoare, Chris Drew, Luke Blick, and Tony Cottrell.  It was also great to see James Hewitt at the event as a civie.

  • Necromunda has NOT taken AT's slot.  Necromunda was always planned for Christmas 2017.
  • The Modular terrain is something that Chris Drew is very proud of.  It will scale perfectly by combining kits.
  • AT artwork is being completed they only had a few shots of God Breakers titans on the computers (nothing really new).
  • The Models are done (Titans)
  • No new titans have been designed as yet (But Chris Drew would love to do one). Expect to see the current Titan classes (Warlord, Reaver, and Warhound).
  • Andy Hoare and Tony Cottrell would not be drawn on a date.  He doesn't want to create more disappointment if its missed again.
  • The key delays are the production and release slots (as these are decided outside the studio)
  • The whole team WANT the game to be released.  They are Very Proud of the game!

So that's it, the next open day is the 40K one in October/November.  So i expect no new news until then.

More progress on Avatar Belli leaves the art gods weeping:

The continued and masterfully applied use of masking tape to get such clean lines and markings.






Very well done and the white pops without being overbearing.






Really coming together and taking her form!
