Reaver work

 Its has once again been a while since the last update, which does not mean I have not been working on the titans. As I states in the last post I intended to bring the reaver, Joluns Wrath to more or the less same state as the war hounds. As can be seen to the left, It now stands by it self. I have magnetized the waist so that the torso can traverse. Putting the foot together was a pain, the pistons to the toes where a nightmare to cut to the right length and get them mounted, especially at the extreme position of the foot. I am pressing the envelop of what the feet and legs where meant to be able to do, but I think I can get it together.

 I have left the foot and the leg unattached at the moment. I have pinned them together for the time being. This lets me paint them separately but still assemble them temporarily. I started painting the legs which got the same green brown paint as the war hound. I opted not to paint the "hip balls" in metallic as on most reavers that I have seen. I am trying to keep the paint scheme as military as possible, which means that i try to avoid having to many base colors.

Hopefully they will not be to uniform at the end. It is a risk painting everything in the same color as it is easy to lose details and structure. But I hope they will look more like gigantic war machines rather than large colorful toys. I think I will have to get the armor plates and upper body of Unbearable Desire painted soon to see how it looks. I do not want to repaint all three titans if it does not work out. Still I am pleased with the results so far so I will keep going.
I could not stay away from the war hound so the mega bolter got some paint. It is still only base painted and it should receive some more attention with details. Now it is only the body left to paint, and the armor plaiting. I will probably spray it some time this week and start with the painting. I also have to try to find some more paint, I am starting to run out. I hope that I can still get hold of the right colors as the ones I am using now are quite old.

  1. WOW, a Warhound and a REaver at the same time! Dude, you've got your work cut out for you! It took me a solid 6 months of work to get my Reaver Titan done!!

    Look forward to the finished results!

  2. There are actually two warhounds. I expect it will take me at least a year or more to get them done. =)
