Comments: 3 years on the making, I was very intimidated to put paint to resin for a long long time. Purchased on release day, and finished in December 2019. But once I started, I couldn't stop! There is a full 6 part series on the paint work on my YouTube Channel, as well as build guides to help all up and coming Princeps!

An outstanding looking Astorum Engine, the chevron work and the subtle star field on the blue is sublime.
Princeps Nick has really gone to town on the Astorum practice of mapping the star fields of their Battles and Conquests, a visual report of their battle honours for all to see. This Engine has certainly seen a lot of history.
 Mars-Alpha Head design.
A great striding pose and beautiful decoration on the Bellicosa Gun Shield.
No inch on this Titan is missing subtle weathering or Astorum sigils. 
A beautiful job on the superstructure and embarkation hatch
Nice weathering and heat staining on the carapace armaments.
The void projectors and reactor veins hint at untapped raw reactor power!
This Warlord sports a plethora of alternative weapons
The proud Princeps on the Command Deck, with Moderati and detailed interior screens.
Modular design allows easy transportation, useful use of magnets throughout.
Princeps Nick's Maniple of Legio Astorum so far.
And with Vassal Knights in support, akin to my own Knights and Maniple. I look forward to Walking alongside my Brother Princeps at a future TOC UK Walk!
Thank-you to Princeps Nick for registering this magnificent Astorum Maniple! 

Cheers, Princeps Seniores Siph, TOC Admin


  1. Absolutely blown away by the freehand on this engine; just epic!

  2. Amazing engine, I enjoyed registering this Engine, such a joy drinking in these pictures! Astorum Walks!

  3. I can't help but whistle in amazement. Superb work.

  4. Thanks everyone and Siph for the kind words and hosting skills! Getting over the mental block to start this one was the hardest part, but couldn’t stop once under way! Was a pleasure to paint and share the journey and results with my fellow Princeps 👍👍👍 A UK TOC walk awaits one day soon for sure.
