Epic Adeptus Titanicus part 4. - War Griffons Reaver

This Reaver titan was painted in my early style with either stippling or sponging to gettlt the mottled carapce colour. The reds used Humbrol Acrylics Red Gloss colour which is really opaque and glossy but I wet highlighted with orange and yellow to get the results you see below.

Below you can see I used some of the transfers on his close combat fist. I had loads of these and the ones specifically for Imperial Guard weere also nice on titans, where appropriate.

Another intersting load-out. I though long and hard about these, well you have to when you're ordering specific weapons instead of going with what came in the blister pack. Here, he's armed with a harpoon missile, power fist and Plasma Blast Gun.

I've still to take photographs of the rest of my mostly unfinished Warlords [around 5] an unfinished Reaver and the incompete Warhound, but I'll drop in some of my Ultramarines next - watch the skies, death from above!


  1. That stippling in many ways is a better effect than the standard back then. It looks like the titan's been through a storm of incoming fire. The detailing with the transfers works well too. I remember choosing titan weapons. There was such a fantastic range and you could get really characterful themes. This is a pretty funky load-out!

  2. Cheers for the praise. One of the best load-outs I'd planned was for the second Warhound, I converted a Corvus Assault pod, made the arm attachment side mounted. Just imagine that beast loping up the battlefield to disgorge a squad of terminators right into a building!
