Final


 So, I finally finished the trio of titans. Well they are mostly done, I still have to finish of some parts on the inside of the back carapace and the banners. But apart from that they are base painted to a reasonable standard. After this it will be some freehand, battle damage and weathering. But for now they are done. I will take some better pictures once it gets light around here again and I will try to make them a little bit more in game. The things that got painted since the last blog is the last warhound weapons and the reaver crew. The weapons where quite straightforward as they have to mach the other warhound and the reaver. The reaver crew however I have been putting of for some time as I did not feel comfortable painting them. Now I decided on a simple look and not to fancy. The are not glued in to the cockpit so I can revisit the later on if I want.

This has been quite a project, about one and a half year, but I have to admit that I have not been painting full time on these guys, there has been some other things in between. The next thing now will be to paint up the thunder chicken that I bought for my Desert Eagles. This blog was started to follow the progress of the titans, but I have gotten quite used to it now, I was not to sure about it from the beginning. Thanks to all of you who have followed my progress and to those who left me some comments of encouragement. I hope you will still visit my blog once in a while to see what I have been up to. And there will most likely be some updated on the titans two.

  2. Greetings. I am very impressed with the quality and detail of your work it's astounding! I am quite partial to the green colours on the titans, I've been trying to replicate it but am having trouble doing so. Would it be possible to tell me how you created that dark green colour and how you applied it to such a fine finish?

  3. Thanks. Nice that you like the coloring. I must say that they are not quite as dark as they appear, it is very much in the light. Well I will give a quick go through here and then I might make a post about it, just have to take the pictures. But I start out with a black base paint (sprayed on). It is not very uniform and here and there the grey resin shows through. It is just a layer to get the paint to stick. Then I apply a layer of catachan green. This is just slopped on with some watering to get it flowing smoothley. This layer will look very blotchy. Over this I apply a layer of brown ink. Then I start drybruching, here it is important to have the right drybruch, it should not have to long bristels, the shorter the smother. I dry brush three layers, catachan green, camo green and rotting flesh. After this it is a waterd down layer of brown ink again followed by drybrushing again, al three colors. Finally I wash the model with the "cleaning" water for the brushes and I might add some catachan green and cammo green to some areas if needed to smooth it out. In my case the cleaning water tend to be quite muddy which gives a bit of smoothness to the model. Then I apply an orange ink to recesses and also on some flat areas to give the apperence of rust. This also pics up on some red tones in the green and transforms it to a warmer tone. This inking is done with quite much water to control the thickness of it. That is the short about it. Hope it helps.

  4. Thank you very much for sharing your scheme in such great detail. I really appreciate it! I actually have started a loyalist reaver titan of my own, I was hoping to use something similar in colouration. Also thanks again for responding so quickly. I will be checking periodically to see what other great works are in progress.
