Legio Astorum - Warlord Titan Build - WIP #30 - Carapace Laser Blasters

Hi Titanseers, nearly there, the God Engine walks now it needs guns! Next time I can do a completion post at last... at very long last :)

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

I had the Carapace Reaver Laser Blasters from the very beginning of this Titan project, and thats how they had sat for near on 3yrs... but no longer, I finally got this monkey off my back and completed the Warlord!
I painted the power hoses to match the others throughout the Titan, coloured a few details like pistons and copper details. The attachment point was dremelled clean of paint and roughened to provide a good surface to glue.
I chose some metallic details, laser rangefinders for the three barrels and some gold trim for interest and weathered the barrels more.
The armour was painted my usual Kantor Blue, FW Nightlords Blue in recesses and gold with Vallejo Brass and Reikland Fleshshade. The top ridges had a highlight of Auric Armour Gold.
The barrels received heat staining using citadel washes, and the muzzle got a drybrush of Abbaddon Black.
Here you can see the metallic touches that add some interest and how the armour plates fit in place nicely.
I chose to keep some of the functionality over decoration with a band of Leadblecher over the vent. I quite like the added details.
The central parts of the barrels received a light drybrush of Stormhost Silver to accentuate the grime either end of the barrels.
The Opus Machina cog motif got a transfer from the AdMech decal sheet, and painted in the black and white usually seen.
The business end. Main Weapons for a Reaver Battle Titan, secondary weapons for the mighty Warlord Titan.
Here you can see the two completed Carapace Laser Blasters, Astorum glyphs and constellations on the Carapace Laser Blaster armoured plates. I can interchange them both so constellations or symbols can be inner or outward facing.
Obligatory Banana for scale...
Or Baneblade! (for my Blogger Buddy DAM)

Next post will be the completed Warlord in all it's splendor! So happy to have this beast finally completed, only a few years in the making... DOMINUS VICTORIA WILL WALK!

Dominus Victoria will Walk at the next Titan Owners Club UK event, where she will be battling alongside 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 :)

    1. Either that's my ol' pal Zzzzz, or a troll that finds it mega dull? lol! Yes, next week will be the great unveiling but you'll see it yourself in MK on the Saturday. Banners now fitted too.

    2. Banners ?!?! Oooh, you're spoiling us, ambassador.

  2. Great work on those blasters, Siph. Aren't each of those on the scale of a Baneblade? Never mind the peanut gallery...

    1. Hmm... I’ll get the Baneblade out and do a comparison shot, with a banana obviously (the true measure of scale) haha.

  3. This is just gorgeous! I have been thoroughly enjoying this series! As someone with little time, and even less storage space, I have been vicariously feasting on these posts for months now. Dominus Victoria will walk indeed!!!

    1. Thanks mate, much obliged and fear not, I’m sure there is more Titan goodness in the pipeline now both myself and LH are on the TitanOwnersClub team ;) Glad you’ve enjoyed the progress over these... years! Haha

  4. Ohhh so close to final pictures! Have enjoyed seeing this come together. Looking forward to hearing how the walk goes.


For the Emperor! (and other Xenos welcome...)
