Reaver Aquila Oculus" Walks for Legio Astorum
A great striding forward pose, all guns blazing, banners streaming!
Siph continued the stripe work of the Maniple with a striped rear carapace quarter, and what's noticeable is the Astorum old-school flame effect on the legs.
The reverse of the Banner has the Titan Owners Club crest. Siph also added some Mechanicus Cog motifs on the Laser Blasters and a makers mark on the rear Carapace.
Nice personal heraldry on the carapace and some effective heat stained Laser Blasters.
The banner was printed and then adapted with the Titan's name.
The knee pad shows the titan name, and a close up of the flame effect.
And the other leg the personal heraldry, the red Aquila repeated on the chest armour.
And the Certificate number on the armour.
Here you can see the rear Void Shield Projectors made from Warhound internal lights, as a banner pole base, topped with the Void Shield Projectors from a wrecked Lucius Warhound, akin to the banners seen in the Adeptus Titanicus 1st Edn artwork.
The arms are all magnetized with 8mm x 20mm rods and small 2mm x 2mm magnets in the hose connectors, meaning all the Battle Titan class weapons can be swapped out easily. The magnets are all the same polarity so either arm can be placed on either side.
Hidden under the top carapace is the neck armour, which Princeps Siph decorated with a nice decal from the Astorum sheet, however its hidden when constructed - but we know its there!
Here is the proud crew, Princeps and Moderati. 
And in the back, the Titan Techpriest monitoring the reactor output and systems.
With all of the removable panels and weapons taken off she is ready for future releases and extra weapon releases.
Easily broken down for transport, all magnetised
Here she is next to her twin, Reaver "Honorum" (10), a fine set of Battle Titans
And finally, a fine picture of Princeps Siph's Titan Maniple so far! The Emperor's Halo Maniple ready to wage war in the Holy Emperor's name! Legio Astorum Walks!
