A Candy-Apple Reaver Titan, Proxy Carapace Weapons and Some Terrain

In my last post I had a Warhound scout titan sporting a candy-apple paint job, so this time out I have a Reaver medium war engine decked-out in a similar scheme.

The inspiration for these came from an excellent YouTube airbrush tutorial I sourced from Moggy's Miniatures. I was so impressed by how he achieved the effect that I wanted to give it a go with a few of my Legio Mortis titans. 

Though definitely not as adept as Moggy's work, I think the graduated gloss red combined with the brass edging gives a suitably decadent, Chaos-y look.

As I mentioned in a previous post, the Reaver kit strangely does not offer the same level of magnetization options as its larger Warlord cousin, so the hobby saw came out for some quick service in order to allow the swapping around of the various weapon bits.

In addition to the Reaver, I've made up a new set of carapace weapons for my Warlord titans in the form of a brace of Mars Pattern Laser Blasters. 

GW continues to be asleep at the switch in providing support for Adeptus Titanicus, so I printed these from 3D files I found on Thingiverse (thanks Stroganoff!). The edge detail is a bit soft, but I think they're excellent on the whole. 

Again, I popped in some magnets so they could be swapped-in to replace the stock missile launchers. Good to go!

To finish off, here are a few more pieces of terrain that I've added to the collection.

A reactor complex...

...and a set of shield generators.

That's it for now, folks! Thanks for dropping in and have a great week!
