Walk After-Action Report- Legio Northguard Battle!

Heiko sent us some pictures recently regarding a battle he was able to take part in using ALL of his lovely God-Machines.  We didn't receive a narrative or bullet points for this one and it looks like the battle itself was quite interesting, so we wanted to share what we got with you.  

Someone is contemplating some serious evil.



Lots of big guns!

Legio Northguard sees support from the Imperial Fists and an attendant Knight house.

The pride of the Legio's forces stands ready to send all to a grave of ash.

Titans!  Titans everywhere!

Thanks for sharing this with us, great to see several Engines running around. - TOC

Update Reaver No.1915 - Rex Submersi, 12-10-16

Dan had some good news for us regarding his Reaver, Rex Submersi, recently:

"Thanks again for everything!

Also, it's settled - this will be a Mortis engine.  I don't think I'm going to use the event only princeps - I have managed to loose the empty chair for the Reaver and the Warhound chair would require modification  so I'll probably save him for now and when someone else joins the maniple I may use him.....


A very lovely scheme is coming together.

A carapace weapon conversion is in the works.

A lot of work going on with all of the parts of the Titan.

The carapace is coming along quite nicely and looks very sharp so far.

Legio Phasmatis Painting Guide Part II

Nathanuel sent on Part II of his Legio Phasmatis painting guide, this time covering the green marble work that adorns that lovely God-Engines of the Legio.

Thank you for sending these on to be shared with the TOC.

Tutorial: Green marble armour plating:

0. What you will need: 

1. Undercoat spray Rustoleum brown, then a second light coat of Citadel Chaos Black

2. Airbrush: aerocolor opaque white airbrush with zenithal highlights.

3. Add tonal variations: lightly airbrush aerocolor fleshtone, then gradually add white to airbrush pot. Add various layers of lighter color, letting underneath show through slightly. 

4. Watermarking: mix 2 drops aerocolor flesh tone + 2 drops brown ink, add ~1 teaspoon water. Sponge paint (with a long slender sponge piece) using tweezers to make marks that are roughly aligned (following a natural diagonal). With a still-wet wash brush, gradually (as the water is drying, but before it drys completely) blend edges to keep some, but not all, watermark edges. 

5. Draw (using 0.3mm lead mechanical pencil) very light cracks 

Use fine detail brush to paint Gryphonne Sepia over pencil lines (keep it very, very thin), forming some new lines and varying the line thickness. With the same brush, paint brown ink in small spots, at intersections, and in various small lines. Again with the same brush, paint white in very, very thin lines and small dots, sometimes following the watermark edges.

6. Gloss coat with airbrush: vallejo gloss varnish + thinner medium.

7. Oil paint wash using thinned oil paint (Winsor and Newton 'Winsor green' + GAMSOL pure odorless mineral spirits), following the techniques in FW MC vII.

8. Paint gold banding. 

Excellent painting guide and very useful. - TOC

Legio Titanicus Titan Maniple

Forge World today announced a new bundle for those with more than enough disposable income.  While we don't expect that many people would take advantage of it (nor are we encouraging you to do anything excessive), we wanted to show off Forge World's newest offering of Titan bundles to the world's foremost Titan lovers.  This is clearly an evolution of the Venatarii Titan Maniple bundle that Forge World previously offered.

Additionally, Forge World says that the loadout is what you see in the imagery, however, they are giving you the option to contact them in order to make subsitutions (even for a Chaos chassis) and they'll still give you a bundle on it.  What do you guys think of this offer?  Let us know what you think in the comments section.
