Adeptus Titanicus - Titans in Manufactorum - Cerastus Knight Lancer - TO DONE!

Afternoon #WarHamFam and #WarhammerCommunity I've been #paintingwarhammer #AdeptusTitanics on my second Cerastus Knight Lancer. Here's both red and white background pics.

I went a bit more OTT with the #BlessedVerdigris this time.

I absolutely love the pose and I'm so surprised I was able to make it look different to the first one I made.

They make a nice duo and I'm surprised how varied they look.

Some close ups, you can see the verdigris in much more detail. The yellow is a bit more vibrant than the first Cerastus.

But I wanted him to stand out a bit more.

Purity seal parchment is always a bit hit and miss with me, I never quite feel I've done a good job, but this one's OK.

Cog decals on the shoulders. The previous Cerastus did not feature the standard black half of the shoulder pads of a House Raven colour scheme, so I had to feature it here.

Freehand attempt on the heraldry badge and a random number decal - because numbers!

Freehand of the House Raven icon badge. I managed to shade the vent a bit - sufficient to make it stand out from the rest of the base.

Two Lancers together.

I keep thinking about the starter set which would give me another two of these. I think that would be pretty awesome but I'm holding off for now, new 40k incoming...

And with that a GREAT Big RUSTY Stamp of Approval

Adeptus Titanicus - Titans in Manufactorum - Cerastus Knight Lancer

Afternoon #WarHamFam and #WarhammerCommunity I've been #paintingwarhammer #AdeptusTitanics on my second Cerastus Knight Lancer. This had been built in August 2022 and I saw it as something of a palette cleanser

Base colours and the patterning are in place, metallics mostly finished off. Massive purity seal, which would obviously get stuck in the lance mechanism - which is why it's there!

The brassy bronze needs to be toned down a bit but the blessed verdigris will also help here.

Much more yellow and black stripes on this one

The press moulded vent on the floor isn't standing out particularly well so I need to find a way to make it more evident.

Lots of glow FX still to do, highlights and weathering.

Finished soon...

Adeptus Titanicus - Titans in Manufactorum - White pics

Afternoon #WarHamFam and #WarhammerCommunity I've been #PaintingWarhammer #AdeptusTitanicus. Here are the pics on a white background for you to enjoy.

All the angles and some close-ups which help show off some of the detailing I added.

Although far too many pics to comment on everything so I'll only chip in where it's relevant.

I loved using the Armiger numbers here - massive numbers always look cool, even on tiny models ;)

I put off doing the Void Shield glow for so long but they came out really well. Thinned down Bahama Blue craft acrylic with Nihilakh Oxide and then thinned white for the extreme highlights.

The green eye lenses added a dash of colour too, as well as the rust streaks.

The odd extra decal on the leg to add more detail.

I threw on that campaign badge on the knee. Don't like it, should have done a blue heraldry knee-pad. Maybe I'll come back to it in the future. 

It was missing the knee joint endcap but I used a Imperial Knight decorative cog to achieve the same thing. If I get more Reavers I may do it again. More big numbers on the leg.

And on the missile launcher. You can also see how I covered up the white griffon decal with blue and orange to create a colour legio badge. I wouldn't want to do it on all of them, but it worked here.

The chainbalde.

I added a kill marking decal on the chainblade, not the best choice but it needed something.

I spend so much time agonising over these extra decal choices and half the time it makes no difference. As with the knee pad where it doesn't work it doesn't matter, I can't be bothered to change it at the moment so won;t bother.

Warhound, love the red of the guns alongside the blue of the VSGs and yellow and grey of the titan armour.

Plasma weaponry - not my best plasma effect but I was trying something new and it's alright.

The three titans together.

Alternate weapon option on the Warhounds.

And there we go - the question remains will I go for more and if so will it be more of the same with the starter set or a Warlord?
