It begins!





Very good setup on the shoulders.







Big magnet.  That Warlord torso won't fall any time soon.







A very deadly loadout, and the Titan has found its prey.  Excellent weathering work.






Good use of OSL and glow.



Nice work on the head unit.

Excellent Titan - TOC

Primary Armament: Volcano cannon, Power fist, Turbo laser destroyer
Princeps: Arkos Reiser
Titan Legio: Legio Astorum
Battle Maniple Composition: Included in battle maniple is Mars Pattern Warhound-0004190 designate Invicti Magnus (MRT2609, MWH4190, MWH4283- TOC)

Owner: Grayson C.
Location: Idaho, USA
Comments: So, finally got around to getting another addition to my maniple. Actually bought this a month ago, but spent a lot of time cleaning and getting it built and started painting so I could use it for a game not too long ago. I ended up facing a Great Gargant and Big Mekk Stompa with my Reaver and 4 Knights. At the start of the battle, the Reaver weathered a ferocious onslaught from the gargant that stripped 12 hull points, the second round the gargant killed a Knight, and injured the Reaver further another 3 hull points. Finally the gargant smote the Reaver turn 3, but because of the Reaver's steadfast resolve to face the ork machine, a knight gallant was able to inflict 15 hull points worth of damage to the great gargant, destroying the filthy ork technology. The Knights quickly then finished off the big mekk stompa, and victory was the Imperium's. Through his steadfast resolve to weather the onslaught of the great gargant, his name roughly translates to the Stubborn Mountain.

On another note, finally got started with painting a portion of my Warhound as well. The stone affect turned out really well, though I need to finish cleaning up the checker pattern. Will have to sit down and do some more work there after I magnetize the Reaver's arms for different weapon loadouts.


WORK IN PROGRESS PHOTOS:



The lovely red box that is the sign of a Titan!



Dangerous weapons adorn the Stubborn Mountain.



The Rite of Construction is nearly finished.





The Rite of Colours has begun.



Parts everywhere, but they will become a mighty war engine.





Pertinax Montem lead the charge against the Orks, though suffered severe damage.

Looking forward to seeing more of this engine- TOC

Borealis Xanthus is currently fast in progress, and is scheduled to Walk in the Horus Heresy Big Blam Megabattle at the NOVA Open 2017. Upgrades include a customized left arm weapon, LED lighting in the head, torso, and weapon arms, customization in the cockpit to represent the Ciricrux Anima, and an internal speaker to blare warhorns. 


Photos of the initial layout and prep are attached, and I plan frequent update during the build and paint process. I've included images of the boxes, certificate, initial layout, and post cleaning, as well as the Claw construction. Next week I should have paint tests for the armor plates and images of the cockpit, as well as LED lighting test for the head.

WORK IN PROGRESS PHOTOS:


The wonderful boxes that signify the start of a Warlord!




All the parts laid bare and ready to be assembled.


Never ceases to amaze how big the claw actually is.



A lovely start to a deadly weapon.





A lot has been done on the head and body.





Very lovely work on the weapons, and a cool conversion for the Ordo Sinister's specialized weapon.






And a unique and great looking conversion for the head and shoulder plates as well.

Update Warlord Titan No.539- Pallidus Rex, 12-5-17

Scott recently had some pictures to send on, and quite a lot of work has been done on his beautiful Warlord:

"Hope the day finds you well! Have some images of progress on Pallidus Rex to share with you!  Long way as of yet to go, but He's coming along nicely! Should have my Destructors in this upcoming week as well!..."

UPDATE PICTURES:


Pallidus Rex stands tall and proud, supported by a Knight Crusader.




A lot of progress on the Rite of Colours and fantastic weathering work.




An aged war machine that has clearly seen plenty of battle of late.



Work is definitely progressing on the shoulders and top.


While an enemy feels the Titan's wrath on the bottom.



A lot of paints being used but there is no denying the effectiveness.


This Titan bears the Pallidus Mor colors, with the bone as the primary on this Warlord, and also a throwback to The Punisher.



Getting close to finishing!
