Forgeworld Reaver Titan Progress

Afternoon all! Now my Imperial Fists have everything they need for their next tournament (finished early for once!), I’ve got some painting time to devote to things that are a bit less urgent. Like Reaver Titans! Since last time, I’ve finished all the ankle piston casings and the legs themselves. The ankle pistons have been done in the standard Army Painter Daemonic Yellow / Soft Tone Quick shade combo, with the armour edging finished in black. The legs have been sprayed black and drybrushed with Tin Bitz and Boltgun Metal. I’ve then sponged on a mix of black, brown and metal paints using a kitchen scourer to simulate damage and weathering (Thanks Ben!). It’s a really quick way of building up some depth. I then sponged on some of Vallejo’s Natural Steel onto the armour edges to show where dirt and damage and been naturally worn away to reveal clean metal underneath, which also gives some highlights to it.

The legs are finished! Well, the endoskeleton, anyway...

Crushing that Rhino. Any suggestions for what colours to paint it?

Next up is to mount the ankle piston casings on the legs via a multitude of pistons. Here they are, ready to spray!

So... Many... Pistons...
