Adeptus Titanicus - Titans in Manufactorum - Yellow highlights

Afternoon #WarHamFam and #WarhammerCommunity I've been #PaintingWarhammer on my #AdeptusTitanicus Titans. Just a quick one, because decals are next and I think I got in the zone. I stippled on VGC Stonewall Grey and Sun Yellow to get the dappled effect. Although not perfect I think I was inl ove at this stage.

I was almost reluctant to go any further as there was something about what I'd achieved so far that moved me in a way I can't explain. Even unfinished I was quite overwhelmed by this reaver and its pose.

I don't know why I felt this way but it was quite glorious and despite the reluctance to go further I was even more motivated to see the finished article.

And with decals next - so much more character was going to be added to these giant robots.

It was not without some concerns though. At this stage I was loving the darker yellow, but my previous Titans had a much lighter finish. Now I do like the older version but I was worried I would lose what I'd just grown to love making it match my earlier attempts.

Or, should I just accept that despite being one Titan Legion, that in times of war getting the right paint isn't always possible and there are subtle differences in the colours used. Or, if the Titans have come from different Forgeworlds they've perhaps had different paint supplies? Or, even just general weathering - some had faded more? Who knows? But in other words - suck it up and have subtly different colours! We'll see. There are still some highlights to add on top of these decals.

  1. Those look great! The Reaver is looking fierce; I love the pose and the paint job. Related to your yellow dilemma, my first two Tempestus titans, both Reavers, used a larger shape dazzle pattern than my next titan, a warlord. At first I hated that they looked different, but I liked how the Warlord came out with smaller shapes in the pattern. Now I've got Nine titans, and I hardly notice the two initial Reavers. The perfectionist in us will always notice; no one else will...

    Great work. Revel in it and enjoy!
