Legio Astorum - Warlord #3 - Ex Noctia WLT No.10 - Painting Armour

The Rites of Colour continue for this mighty veteran God Engine of Beta Garmon now recovered and being re-sanctified. The transfer from Legio Atarus to Legio Astorum has meant a complete overhaul of systems and removal of the sanctified armour plates for rededication and repainting.
Some armour re-painted in place and details like Pistons and Searchlights done.
As a nod to the previous heraldry and history of the Titan, and to avoid upsetting the Machine Spirit, the addition of red markings to the traditional Blues and Golds of Legio Astorum will be preserved, the rear leg pauldrons retain their Atarus reds and silvers, whilst the shoulder armour will preserve some reds and elsewhere reds will be preserved as stripes. 
The main red accents will remain on the void generator arches atop the Titan. One because it makes it easier to identify next to Dominus Victoria (WLT104) on the battlefield viewed from above and rear, but mainly because I did not want to repaint all the hard to get to details! I loathed painting these vents and arches on Dominus Victoria, so I was keen to preserve the reds here - but tied into the blues and stripes elsewhere with the alternate red and blue panels.
As always this will be based like my other Titans using 6mm MDF and forstner recessed screws from the underside into the feet. If you are looking for a complete guide on construction of a Forge World Warlord see below:

This needs to be ready for BeachHead 2023 at Bournemouth BIC for the Titan Owners Club UK BeachHead Walk!

Legio Astorum will Walk at the next Titan Owners Club UK event, where they will be battling alongside other Forge World 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 running these events or buying Titan sized terrain for future Walks for all members to enjoy :)

Cheers, Princeps Siph :)
