Reaver Titan 4

Lots of clean up work and then I did some dry fitting to see how I wanted the legs to stand.  I pinned these once I was happy by drilling a hole through the two parts, cutting a 1/8" metal rod to fit and affixing with a two-part epoxy.  I think the resin would break before the joint did so I'm quite happy with the strength.  The model is going to be very heavy so I don't want anything to be weak.  You can see a hole in the knee where the rod goes but this will be covered with the knee armour plating later.

Reaver Titan 3

I can't get over how large these weapons are.  I've cleaned them and attached the barrels to the gatling blaster.  They weren't too warped either, just a bit of hair dryer straightened everything out.  These pieces aren't too heavy (nothing load bearing) so I pinned them with paper clips.  Each gun is about as long as my fell blade!

Reaver Titan 2

I tossed everything in a giant pail of simple green to degrease the reaver parts.  It seemed to work pretty well too compared to the dishsoap I usually use.  Here's a monster pile of all the pieces drying out.  I haven't removed the flashing from anything yet.  Going to do that as I build things.

Reaver Titan 1

Time to start the big project!  I premeasured the base so I could ensure it fit in my display cabinet.  I want to have some infantry on the base that are removable so I can tie the titan into whichever army/faction it's being used with.  I'm going to put it on a forested base to look like it's stomping through the trees.  I hope it turns out alright since everyone always uses debris and buildings.  New is good!

[Emerald Fists] Sicaran Battle Tank - Complete

This model was fun to paint; I think partially because it is a new chassis to what I'm familiar with (so many rhinos).  Really nice design too with all of the elements evident in the land raider.  Anyway, pew pew!

Star Wars Armada - Imperial Fighters

Armada is such an awesome game and I had to continue painting the fighters from the fighter expansion pack.  I'm a bit sad it came with two more tie fighters, since I already had 6 stands, but oh well.  I'm sure there will be a 2nd fighter pack someday so I can get more pilots and bombers.  I painted the bombers with a very slightly different colour (space wolf grey instead of fortress grey) but it doesn't really show on the photo.  I also added the 'ace' stripe to soontir fel's interceptors :)

[Emerald Fists] Sicaran WIP 2

More painting on my sicaran.  I tried out some heat burn on the barrels with some purple and blue washes.  Do ballistic cannons get hot like that?  Probably not?  I assume the entire barrel would get hot and not just the end but what do I know?  I like the look.
