Hello Everyone.

I have recently started doing commissions and i am uber happy to say that my first one will be a Reaver titan made by forgeworld :).

With the kind permission of the models owner NocturnalK i am going to post the progress in this log. From building to painting.

The model is arriving today (excited :biggrin:) however i have already started the banner.

This is the progress so far:

Front



Back



I havn't seen many titan threads here so ill try to get loads of pictures up so you guys can check out the whole model.

Cheers

LTP

go baby go..

the reaver is by far my favorite model. fw kept the old epic design (i would rep 'em for that) and made a perfect adaption for 40k out of it. it's neat, it's fitting, and it's fucking badass..

so don't mess it up ;)

happy working

Bloody brilliant, the unboxing was everything I wished it would be.

Kudos for NocturnalK for letting you start a thread.

You're so lucky but like you said no pressure not to mess it up though looking at the rest of your work, am sure you'll do it justice.

This thread is going to be amazing (now where's that spare £600 so i can order one).

My pleasure mate 
Hope you all enjoy, I’m confident LTP will do a fantastic job of it :D

Lol i did not pay that for it :p, if you look hard you can find some out there at a good price. I just accidently stumbled on it in conversation in eBay while haggling over a Warhound, lol i did not even give this reaver a chance to be listed, which they appreciated as it saved them having to photo it all :D

:biggrin:

This is where you all drool.......warning pic heavy :biggrin:



































Your computers are going to hate me after loading all those.

Loads of flash on these bits but only one bit of damage. No warping yet that i can see (fingers crossed).

The detailing on this model is fantastic.

Ok im gonna leave you all to drool now.

:bye:

Oh my god, it's like being a kid opening up your massive Lego kit on Christmas, except it's a reaver titan. I am a big fan of your work and I know that you will do an amazing job on this. I will be glued to this thread. Now, to get a Thunderhawk for me......

wow. i didn't realize it consists of so many parts. even the projectiles from the launcher are single parts:shok:. oh my. happy assembling. you're really lucky that you got no warped parts. everything i ever ordererd from fw i had to send back at least once (ok, sometimes i could keep the warped stuff). like they have no quality control or something like that. very annoying.

anyways, get it on. which legion will the sweety belong to? warp runners?

you know, i think the hardest part will be to give it back after you're done and in love with it. i don't envy you one bit there :biggrin:

lol, hmm yep the pleasure will be all mine :victory:

lol, but you can give it a bedding in on a gaming table if you want before it comes home :D

Not decided what titan legion it will belong to yet, hmm...i know the warp runners were active on vraks so there located close to the gate.... But arnt the warp runners titans manufactured by the Lucious Forge?, the reavers only come in mars partern. Thats one thing which i noticed in the seige of vraks.

Our we could open it up to suggestions in here to a good titan legion name :p

well like i said i havn't actually assembled it yet lol so there could be something.

I was all happy until you metioned handing it back :(. Plus NocturnalK knows where i live so i cant even steal it haha (not that i would ;)):whistle:

So im watching the match right now get in there England! But before that i have cleaned all the parts.

Ok so firstly i need one of these



without tea i cant function very well so this is completely nesscessary lol.

I have taken up half the kitchen to do this haha. I have 3 bowls. 1 large one for the bit parts, a smaller one and a rinse bowl. The first 2 are warm water with a little but of washing up liquid.



Then get an old toothbrush and just soak the parts in the mixture and then scrub and rinse then leave on a tea towel or kithen roll to dry.



All clean and back in the bags :)



Im going to keep a time log for this thread so you know how long its taking on each bit etc. I might keep a tea log too see how many i got through haha.

Time for cleaning : 1 hour 30 mins

Now onto the De - flashing

i am genuinely excited to see your progress on this commission. loving the fact that you're posting regarding every "stage" of the project so far. keep us [regularly] updated, and do the awesome job that you are extremely capable of doing.

p.s. i was considering buying a thunderhawk circa christmas-time [subject to work bonuses etc]...but now, that titan is whispering "buy me, buy me!" from the depths of the FW website...such a dilema! :grin:

That's one hell of a project to re-start comission work with!

What kind of level painting are you doing? i can only assume it's the full 9 yards on such a pretty model.
