|Some more additions for "Adeptus Titanicus" and Epic 30k|
|A Reaver titan for the Loyalists...doomed to be destroyed opposing the Warmaster. How sad.|
If you have paid any attention to prior postings over the years on this blog, you will see I'm no whiz with plastic models, even very straightforward ones, and this was no exception. I have difficulty posing the legs on these new Reaver Titan models, even when I believe that I am trying something relatively straightforward. In this case, you can see I managed to over-pose the Titan's right leg and foot. This prevented the leg "greaves" from attaching in a clean, proper way.
|Oops. That leg doesn't look right. That's what you get with "loyalist" Mechanicum, right?|
|These models cost a frigging fortune, but they are very nice.|
|I love the absurd "gatling cannon" - I mean...just nuts.|

|Another view of the first building.|
I will say, however, that assembly is tricky. And I don't mean by the "Greg is useless and impatient at model assembly" standard of tricky - they really are tricky to put together, a necessary condition of their modular nature. But they are worth your time, and will give you some nice pieces of real-estate to fight over (and blow up in the process).
|A nice, small, generic building - great for Epic 30k gaming.|
|A Consulate facility for the XVI Legion.|
But I think it will make for a fun objective in a game - and it shows how nice the building models are. The paint jobs here were very, very quick-and-dirty. But there is a lot to go to town on if you want to take the time, and much more skilled terrain painters than I (i.e. nearly everyone out there) will find it worth their efforts.
|The Warmaster himself, inspecting one of his facilities...|
Since I love Epic 30k, and since I have collections of troops from the Warmaster's own Legion, and now, even a consulate for him, well, how about the Warmaster himself? This is a privately sculpted 6mm-scaled figure of Horus Lupercal, Warmaster and Commander of the XVI Legion, humanity's last hope! The figure is a faithful rendition of the Forge World 28mm figure.
|Suitably dramatic cloak.|
|Some pelts, of course - the Space Wolves might think they are original, but they are just copying Horus of course...|
|For a small figure, still a really impressive sculpt.|
Thanks for stopping by at the Blog today - I hope you have a great day. I'm off now for a quick visit to...Helsinki! The Winnipeg Jets are playing a couple of games as part of an NHL effort to promote their league in Europe. If you know of a good hobby shop in Helsinki, by all means, share it in the comments! Happy painting to all.
