Adeptus Titanicus - Legio Mortis - Warp Missile Rack

Hello Readers, the Forge World website describes the warp missile as "one of the rarest and most powerful munitions available to Reaver Titan Princeps. Mounted atop the god-machine's carapace, the warp missile can be fired just once. Equipped with a miniature warp engine like those on starships, when fired it briefly enters the warp and emerges within an enemy Titan's shields, causing devastating damage." Right that the Legio Mortis utilise this most dreadful and esoteric weapon.
I picked up a Warp Missile Rack whilst browsing the Forge World store at Warhammer World, and since I didn't or shouldn't be adding to the pile-of-shame, I thought I'd get it done and dusted quickly...
I painted the warp missile itself to look weird and wonderful with sickly warplight glow from the innards, what daemon madness is contained within these traitor weapons the loyalist Engines will find out. In the rules, these bypass the Void Shields, manifesting within the Engine straight from warpspace and cause Critical damage to the onboard superstructure and systems. A one shot weapon is always a risk, if I miss or roll badly for Critical effects I've wasted a perfectly good hard point for the rest of the battle, however, if I get a good result - it can cause serious hurt to a fully shielded Engine!
The rack is magnetised to the carapace, allowing easy swapping out when designing a battle force.
The missile iteslf is also magnetised on the rack, so once it is fired I can indicate that by removing the missile from the model. 

May your reactors burn true, Cheers, Siph

Adeptus Titanicus - Terrain - Civitas Imperialis

Hello all, thanks for dropping by. I recently finished some Adeptus Titanicus terrain for my mini titans to fight over. These are the Games Workshop Civitas Imperialis set. 
Not much in a single set, but combined with some others and the Spires set should give enough to battle over. The nice thing about Titan games is they don't need much terrain or models. I think another set will be required though.
These were easily painted in one sitting, sprayed black, oversprayed Stormvermin Grey, highlighted spray Uniform Grey. The building except the bottom was then shielded by cardboard and a light spray of Zandri Dust on the lower reaches was done.
Once the spray was finished, I washed the whole thing with Agrax Earthshade and the roof with a watered down wash. Once completely dry, I drybrushed the lower half Ushabti Bone, top half Administratum Grey then picked out a few details in Leadbelcher, washed Nuln Oil.
I picked out the pipes and vents and the small building will have a stratagem or radar dish fitted when I get it out of the main AT set.
Lastly a few Aquila were picked out in Retributor Gold and washed Reikland Fleshshade and the skylight on one building picked out in Kantor Blue and highlighted turquoise.

Cheers, Siph (5pts Terrain)

Genestealer Cults - Purestrain Genestealers

Welcome readers, thanks for dropping by. Following on from my long overdue Genestealer test scheme of  2017, I have adapted the paint scheme to the new contrast paints to speed up the process and dirtied up the original to match the Skeleton Horde flesh base. About time I did some more, so I grabbed my old copy of Space Hulk, added a few newer Genestealers from an eBay purchase and the Cults boxset and put paint to plastic.
These are simply, Wraithbone contrast base, then Skeleton Horde, a top wash of Agrax, sparingly. Then the chitin is painted Flesh Tearers Red contrast, a second coat on the recesses, washed Nuln Oil in the recesses and highlighted Evil Sunz Scarlet.
The details are then Bugmans Flesh, washed Reikland, tongue glazed Bloodletter and the eye Averland Sunset and glazed yellow.
The bases are then done my usual Mournfang Brown, drybrushed Karak Stone and Ushabti Bone. 
The process is quite quick when working on a production line as contrast paints dry fairly quick. These will bolster the fledgling Cult somewhat! I have a ton of the characters yet to add, so another nice palette cleanser before I get back to Titans and Relictors... maybe... as I said at start of year, work is taking me away so posts will be fewer and scheduled in my absence. Lord Halfpenny continues to keep the homefires burning at WeeMen Towers :)

Cheers, Siph (11pts. One done previous)

Deathwatch - Smash Captain WIP

Hello All!

This week I've started work on a Captain for my Deathwatch, hailing from the Sons Of Medusa, armed with a Thunder Hammer, and a Deathwatch storm shield. I am in two minds whether to go with a jump pack, or not.

I've looked to link the green from the chapter symbol to the inside of the cape, as per other characters. I've also opted for a bare head with a bionic head to tie in with his chapter of origin. 

Hopefully will get him completed over the next few weeks. LH
