About the Project

I've had this since the grand master set first came out and I painted the warlords and started the knights from the box. I then got a couple of reavers and warhounds all of which were magnetised, assembled and primed and left. I thought this was a chance to get these ready.

Titans are a go

Work has started on the warhounds and reavers, these are painted in the colour schemes from Legio Gryphonicus & Legio Mortis (although I think the armour is too light a blue for them so that may change).

For the Gryphonicus’s I’ve airbrushed on game air sombre grey and then stippled white over it and for Mortis I’ve airbrushed game air Electric Blue over the armour and then painted the red panels with mephiston red but I think I will change that as isnt the same as the warlord so I will have to look for something else.

Knights are done (sort of)

So the knights are done, the House Morbidia knights (the red ones) have had the gloss black trim painted in and the other House Terryn knights (my big 40k knights are painted in the same scheme, so technically not a heresy house) have had the gold trim tided up and the only thing left is the basing and transfers.

I am going to try and do the basing for all the titans and knights at the same time which is where the stumbling block comes in as I cant seem to find one of the bases for the warhounds. Its on order so I’ll get back to the bases later.

In the meantime on to the titans.

Sorting out the Knights

I decided I didnt like the light blue knights and I couldnt remember which house I was painting them as so I thought I would redo them as House Morbidia.

So I repainted the armour with model air chrome (my favourite silver paint at the moment) and then I did a test with blood angels red on the right shoulder and candy red on the other (third image the knight with just the shoulders painted). The candy red is odd stuff, it took two coats with brush to get the solid cover I wanted but the quite often the second coat would reactivate the first meaning coverage could be patchy even after I let it dry for 24 hours.

Taking stock

I thought I would make a start by listing the things to get done for this project:

  • Finish the assembled knights
  • Repair the reaver with the broken leg
  • Paint the reavers and warhounds
  • Base everything
  • Assemble the knights at the back which are still in the box
  • Check the loft for other kits which are lurking up there (if there is time and I still have the will)
