WIP: Adeptus Titanicus Legio Tempestus Warhound Titans - Part 2
Not a lot to show for progress on the baby Warhound titans this week. Lots of little pieces of tape to cut and place all over the armor. I'm maybe half way to done for the first layer of masking here? A little more than half way?
Shin armor is done. One Warhound will have black and white shins, so only three sets to add camouflage to. It is not hard work at all, just time consuming to cut all the little shapes and get them on the model in an interesting pattern without scratching the finish too much (battle damage!). Scratching is due to using fine pointed tweezers and the hobby knife to work the pieces in place.
Above we have Facta Belli's legs and below a shot of her carapace and head. Still have to finish the weapons and exhaust covers at the rear of the carapace.
Here is Lux Curet, who is the only Warhound complete in terms of camouflage masking tape.
From the top, you get a better idea of how the weapons look. So many little pieces of tape...
Not very exciting for a week of hobby, but represents more time than you might imagine. I'll complete it at some point next week, then lay down the second coat of camouflage color. Then I start all over again with the second and final layer of tape followed by the last camouflage color. Whew! Then I can get to painting the trim and the rest of the detail work. This project is going to stretch out a bit more than other recent ones have.
These Warhounds should look fantastic among the Warlord and Reavers I already have painted. Once they are completed, I can build the final Warlord and the extra Forge World Warlord weapons I managed to pick up before they sold out! Check back next week for more on these Warhounds, in the meantime.
Cheers and Happy Gaming!
