Isn't that missile a little small to be a vortex missile? is there any way of beefing it up or elongating it? Or even putting necron flux rods into the body showing that it has a unstable payload would be sweet. And maybe beef up the launching rails? It looks a little flimsy, as the imperium is not know for subtlety.
Just a thought.

UPDATE!!!!!!!

I think I'm around half finished painting now. Have some pics:





^Just use your imagination to put the two parts together. I'm not going to bolt it all closed until I'm finished!



True, the vortex missile is a little on the small side for a titan of this size, but it really isn't that bad. Remember too, that it is only a 5" blast weapon, so it would just seem weird if I made it too big.

And yes, there will be a banner. See? Here's a picture of it:



So, that's it for the "base coat." It now looks like a big rusty hulk. Now to move on to the weathered "paint" that the rest of the Vostroyan vehicles have...

C&C are always appreciated!

It. Is. Done. Cue "The Final Countdown."



The Tzar. I'm gonna assume that at least one of you has never seen an Armorcast Reaver Titan in person, so I'm gonna post a lot of pictures! Here you go:









And a few size comparisons. Really, you can't get a good idea of how big this model is by these pictures alone. It stands just over a foot tall (not including the missile on its back).





Well, there we have it! What do you think? I think it looks a little bit better than it did when I got it... Right? Hah! If you want any other pictures of it (or any other model of mine, for that matter) just let me know!

C&C are always appreciated!

I'd think about weathering the red, it's really standing out on that beautiful bronze skin.

I'm going to second Ddraig. The red is really bright. I would also recommend revisiting your vehicle paint scheme entirely. The wearing away of the red isn't convincing.

There is a mismatch between the subtlety of the dry brushing and the quality of the red/weathering. The dry brushing has a soft subtle feel to it. It looks dark and dirty. There is a lot of texture and variation.

The bright red by contrast is clean, shiny, and has a questionable border. Also problematic is the pattern of the weathering. It doesn't seem to follow a natural path. Weathering takes place in particular places for specific reasons. Much of your weathering of the bright red looks artificial, and it's you evenly spaced. The black edges are to tidy.

I think your vehicle would look significantly better without the bright red layer. Your dry brushing is clearly effective and creates an wonderful texture and tone. And the glass ports are a very nice accent.

Your options I think are to do away with the bright red entirely (my preference) or to dirty it down and do more with the edges. Making the red seem more integrated into the texture of the rest of the model.

Good luck!
