OMG the Camouflage work is done. Before I could get there, I needed to complete and entire second round of masking over the previous layer. This establishes the second layer of colored shapes that appear to be painted over the Legio Tempestus dark blue background. Let's take a look at a one of the Titans with the second layer of masking applied.

Next, I removed all the masking and got the titans ready for brushwork and decals. Here are shots of where the Titans stood after the masking putty was removed.

Unmasked, I touched up the metal skeletons of the titans (Scale 75 Black Metal) and dry brushed them with Vallejo Oily Steel (70.865). This work can be seen in the title image when compared to the individual pictures of unmasked titans above.
Next up will come shading of the skeleton and the final unmasking of the camouflaged armor panels so the trim work can begin. Checkered decals will get applied to some of the white armor panels as the heraldry takes shape. Lots yet to do, but the pace should greatly accelerate now that the painfully slow work of masking the camouflage pattern is behind me.
Cheers and Happy Gaming!
