I’m not only painting Dreadfleet at the moment, but also a Reaver Titan. Not just that, I also get to clean and build the big guy.
…and it is a ton of work. I work with resin kits a lot of course and this isn’t the first big one I’m putting together. To be fair though, it’s the biggest I built to date. So many bloody parts! I sat in so much resin dust, it wasn’t fun any more.
I put so much green stuff and super glue in this model. Not to speak of the metal rods where I pinned it.
I had to put the parts aside for a while and paint a bunch of other mniis (some of which will pop up on here, most of which won’t due to them not being GW minis, but you can have a look on my blog.) as cleaning the model had become such a chore. But I’m soldiering on.
As you can see I start from various bits I know aren’t depending on each other in terms of posing and such. It’s also convenient being able to switch between sections of the model while the GS on others is drying.
The absolute biggest step was getting all the parts cleaned, bent right, cleaned of flash and 'dry fitting' them. That's all really mind numbing. And then it's straight to the thinky part. Where/how to pin, where/how to use magnets, what magnets to use and so on. 😉
Well, it takes all sorts, l suppose.
Looking forward to seeing progress, as I've never worked on this scale either. Always quite fancied the Phantom Titan.
Oh yes, and the Phantom is bloody HUGE. Earlier today I saw a picture of it next to a Warlord titan. It's taller than the Warlord.
Two Spartans were enough for me.
Spartans must be a bunch of fun to paint. 🙂 What chapter/legion are you doing?
Make sure to go register on the Titan Owners Club blog. Your Reaver will be loved as part of the community. :). And awesome on starting a Titan.
Thanks! I painted 4 titans so far, unfortunately none of them are mine. All for customers. But I'll remind the guy I'm doing this one for of the Titan Owners Club. 🙂
