Progress! I have now painted all components but for the cables which need to be heat treated into the right shape (for obvious reasons) and the knee pistons which I am just about ready to put to the sword, as despite about half an hour of dedicated cleaning they still won't hold paint. Death is too good for model parts like that. My proposed solution to this quandry is to emery cloth the surface of them, then just re-spray and make sure I seal the buggers the moment they are constructed!
So, some progress shots. I've decided to assemble from top down to avoid the balance issues that I had with my warhound... hopefully. That and I need to paint those damn pistons.
I'm thinking about making an independent thread to consolidate all these Titan project pictures into once I have finished him. What do you think? Should be easier if anyone wants references (oh humble me) if they want to go looking for them.
Also been enjoying the Path to Glory Campaign a lot. I won the Thunderhawk crash scenario only by carrying the 'relic' imperial fist from the ship and handing it over to the terminators, who promptly hid in the building whilst everything else but the defiler was mulched around them by space wolves. I must say, when five wulfen can dispatch 8 berserkers with apparent ease, you know it's time to buff chaos. Right? Guys? Guys?
Next scenario will be on a space station, table pic below. I'm thinking of running two games on the same table, the first a kill team game with models only allowed from what we have in our warbands, and the second a pitched battle with perks depending on how battle 1 went.
Lastly, I think I mentioned that my Nurgle/Black Legion vs Skitarii campaign concluded with a bang, a long retreat by the skitarii failing to save the techpriest who was struck down by materialising obliterators and teleported to his doom when the game ended with him still in their possession... just. Damn, a three nil loss to Chaos, who would have picked that? Still, by game 3 I felt like I had a really good handle on the three Skitarii units I have in my army so far... time for some assassins and striders soon!
Well, my friend was so enthused by that scenario that he couldn't wait to get another one going. This time, we are playing out some of the war on Armaggedon (3rd War), with his gorgeous orks against my Guard and a friend's ultramarines, who will feature next game (inspired by my Thunderhawk Down scenario and the movie 'Black Hawk Down').
Game one saw my Guard deployed to a location suspected to hold clues to where the Mechanicus hid their ordinatus machines prior to Armaggedon I, only to find the Speed Freaks making good use of the desert land to race around and generally wreck everything. A really close game, I had the orks in my face the whole time and if I hadn't had turn 1 and kept my wyverns for far too long in the game, it would have been a sure loss. As it was, I managed to seize an objective and hold it long enough to drive his boys off the middle one and win the game by a fingernail!
