Here I find myself at week 18, and … well… I’m almost done. I have finished the Mechanicum icons on the back of the carapace and I’ve spread a little Forge World Black Soot weathering powder on the exhausts, vents and near the void shield generators as well as some washes of Agrax Earthshade and Nuln Oil on the same areas.
The Mechanicum icon was painted with Karak Stone and Abaddon Black as a base and then the bone areas were washed with Agrax Earthshade and then re-highlighted with Karak Stone again and then Krieg Khaki as as a top highlight. The black was lightly drybrushed with Dawnstone and then Administratum Grey and then a light wash of Nuln Oil was applied to the black areas only.
After that was all finished I then got my lovely epoxy resin out and mixed a batch up in order to stick the bad boy together! I had to hold this in place for 35 minutes (!!) while it set and then I took it into my kitchen to try and take some better photos.
I took those last pics about 20 minutes or so ago, so I’m as up to date as I can be at the moment. I have a few little tiny bits to finish – such as the lenses on (what I think is ) the rear engine control panel and of course I still need to stick him on his base and finish colouring the clear plastic sheet for the cockpit windows. I’m undecided whether I want to do any real battle damage or not, at this point I think it will either go well and really enhance the look or will go badly and ruin a few months work. What do you think?
I’m going to take a little break from Titan-ing now for two weeks as I’m off to Warhammer 40k Battle Brothers with @Borkan_Ice , @CPJohnson80 and @freexerjin (to give their Twitter names!) and I need to finish my force for that. I expect the next post will be the final one for this particular project, so if there are any questions about anything I’ve done with this model or anything you’d like to know about the painting – please do ask in the comments section. I will always reply.
Once I’m done, I’ll be building and painting a Thunderbolt Fighter! 🙂
