Base WIP

Great way to create a base.

The Warlord will definitely look like an imposing beast.

Love how this came out.

The grass tufts add a nice touch.

For the Emperor!

Beautiful shot.  You can imagine this being the last thing a traitor sees.


A very menacing pose and the Titan certainly looks ready to fire.

Titan and owner.

Engine up to date as of 10-10-17


Already it looks imposing.

Great weathering on the interior and exterio.

The head already has the look of a venerable piece of tech.

Every nook and cranny has depth and a richness to it.

The start of the Astorum yellow and the continuation of the weathering.

Very lovely detail for all of the screens.

A very well done head piece.

A noble looking war engine.  Very close to completion now.

Engine up to date as of 22-9-17


Getting ready to start on the upper armor panels.

Getting everything taped up.

Very smooth color transitions on the trim.

These armor panels are ready to be placed.

The Astorum look continues to come to the fore.

Definitely closing in on the finish now.


The chest and upper arm guards are coming along quite well.

Definitely getting closer and closer to completion.

All of the colors work together.

The pose is great and the Warlord is looking deadly, the re-positioned right leg won't be a factor once the Titan is based.

Engine up to date as of 16-8-17


The continued and masterfully applied use of masking tape to get such clean lines and markings.

Very well done and the white pops without being overbearing.

Really coming together and taking her form!

It begins not with the other parts, but the magnet!

The slow process of a ton of glue, clamps, and rubber bands defines the torso box build.

But it leads to giving the Warlord even more character.

More and more parts get added, slowly.

Comparatively few gaps, a very well done assembly.

Now Avatar Belli really takes shape.

Starting on the shoulders.

Very strategic use of pins for strength.

The proud owner shows up yet again!

The Rite of Colours beings on the torso.

All the base metal is down and washed.

And the weathering begins.

Further weathering and now the addition of the brass type metallics goes on.

Plenty of attention to detail, as always.

And now the lenses see work done as well.

Even areas that will be obscured or hidden by the shoulder pads receive the same amount of care.

Very beautiful work on the upper armor panels.

Working on getting everything glued into position.

Getting the lower panels installed.

The Arioch Claw in isolation and display from the Mechanicus.

All panels installed and the legs really take their form.

Such a lovely pose in the works.

Engine up to date as of 10-6-17


Masking off the areas for a good, smooth look.

The man himself poses with his growing Titan.

Sharp detail, beautiful gold work.

The armor panels begin to make their way on to the war machine.

Engine up to date as of 2-6-17


A nice metallic effect that's been well executed and signs of weathering already display themselves.

Every bit of the legs has been paid attention to.

Very lovely work so far.


Very lovely color choices and a lot of beautiful weathering work.

The weapon cowl stands out without being dominating.

Great use of weathering on the back.


Lovely gradient on the claws and the targeting lenses are spot on.

The weathering really shows on this picture and has been done really well.

Such a rich blue.


The glorious pile of resin awaits!

A good indicator of the scale of the Arioch Titan Claw.  It's massive.

Avatar Belli will certainly be able to rend its foes and punish them.


  1. Congratulations! In more ways than one!

  2. Congrats on getting married! What a great present!

    That really does show the scale on the claw, holy moly!

    1. The claw is amazing! I really loved to paint it!
