Legio Astorum - Warlord Titan Build - WIP #28 - Greaves and Legs Complete

Hi Titanseers, nearly there with this God Engine! Less than a month to go and now all the work is coming together and pieces are getting finished at last. I can definitely see the end, just the carapace weapons and Pauldrons to do and then I can do a completion post at last... at very long last :)

The link to the whole Titan Construction process can be found HERE.

The Greaves were basecoated Chaos Black and the then the Kantor Blue was applied over the armour and a recess paint of FW Nightlords Blue before allowing to dry completely and then masking carefully - using alternate strips to measure the equal thicknesses of the stripes then removing every other one - these exposed stripes would be the ones that would become white. The armour trim was masked also and then sprayed white. I used the rivets on the armour trim to make sure both sides were equally spaced and positioned.
Before removing the tape, the recesses on the exposed sections were painted Ulthuan Grey. Once the tape was removed carefully the underspray was tidied up in the very edge recesses with a little Nightlords Blue and any mistakes on the white with Ulthuan Grey - leaving a very sharp and clean striped chevron pattern. The trim was then given a tidy up of Chaos Black before two coats of Vallejo Brass and a wash of Reikland Flesh Shade.
And finally with the blue shin Greave fitted the legs are completed. The characteristic wide Greaves now giving that familiar silhouette and mass.
The legs were sealed with a lacquer spray to protect them and restore some of the gold shine, I was careful not to spray the base and the dusty in-between toe armour which received a matt seal instead.
As in Adeptus Titanicus, getting behind a Titan in combat is of merit, target the exposed superstructure rather than the strong armour plates.
I love the blue and white chevrons and the Astorum Eclipse knee pad together, the one striped greave will match the Maniple Warhounds.
Lord Halfpenny's Knight Banner have yellow and red Pauldrons, here is a crushed one - either on the side of the Warlord, or against - but crushed and completed with decals, personal heraldry shot through and an Imperial Aquila.

Dominus Victoria will Walk at the next Titan Owners Club UK event, where she will be battling alongside 80 (yes 80!!) other Titans! I will be sure to post lots of photos.  Remember to register your own Titans at Titan Owners Club, and if you want some cool Titan Owners Club merchandise, we even now have a Spreadshirt Shop, any profits go to buying Titan sized terrain for future Walks for all members to enjoy :)

Cheers, Princeps Siph :)
