Hello All, thanks for dropping by - "Aquila Oculus" Walks! I am really pleased with my efforts, Legio Astorum has a new addition Engine, meet the mighty 'Disco' Reaver - dual Triple Laser Blasters and a carapace Twin Turbolaser Destructor! No longer 40K compliant with the pared down rules (or lack of options except the Apocalypse Missile Launcher) but we play Adeptus Titanicus 28mm at Titan Owners Club Walks so happy with that.
I 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, it was strange painting red on an Astorum blue titan!
The reverse of the Banner has the Titan Owners Club crest. I also added some Mechanicus Cog motifs on the Laser Blasters and a makers mark on the rear Carapace.
Here you can see the striding forward pose, all guns blazing!
Here you can see the personal heraldry on the carapace and the heat stained Laser Blasters.
The banner was printed and then adapted with the Titan's name.
The kneepad 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. I am awaiting banners akin to the banners seen in the Adeptus Titanicus 1st Edn artwork.
The Banner Poles will have a couple of these type banners atop the Carapace.
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 I decorated with a nice decal from the Astorum sheet, however its hidden when constructed - but I 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.
All painted up and ready to go, I've used Clear Lacquer spray for car body trims to seal the titan and protect the bodywork and restore the shine to the trim and armour panels. I like the factory fresh well maintained holy war Engine, of course weathered and battered Engines are also entirely suitable for long campaigns.
Here she is next to her twin, Reaver "Honorum", a fine set of Battle Titans
And finally, a fine picture of my Titan Maniple so far! The Emperor's Halo Maniple ready to wage war in the Holy Emperor's name! Legio Astorum Walks!
Cheers all for following along with this build, pleased to get this addition done and onto the next Titan, a strip and rebuild of a Mars Warhound Titan.
Have a great Christmas all.
