Compiling a Legion

Recommended Posts

Nice! (But quite athletic for a Warlord... :lol:) might I suggest- if you can find one- a destroyed traitor knight for the base? But coming along beautifully. Weathered heavily, I hope? :lol:

Hahaha ;)

Indeed, this would be sporty spice. What I did for one of the Readers is take a crushed wolfhound. There are some spare parts heads and top carapace. I am a bit hesitant to "kill" a full model for basing purposes, because these aren't cheap. Will see if I can convince myself.

No, I suppose not. Just an idea- I appreciate the price and probably wouldn’t do it myself, :lol:

You can easily place the odd spare part. For example a knight head and close combat weapon when I get my hands on the add on parts. But killing a 7€ figure for Base purposes is not resonable at least not for me.

Hey there and the next update. A bit more work on the upper Torso armour. I am happy with the colors now, so all the golden Trim and decals next.

Very nice- I see you haven’t painted some of the armour panelling on the gun- what colour will that be?

The panels on the gun and the rocket launcher are actually the same approach of grey as the other sections. Maybe it is not so obvious in the pictures because of the missing separation from the metallic parts. The armour panel on the side of the gun will be grey blue. Grey is the main colour of Legio Gryphonicus.

Here ist the Gryphonicus Titans left side with all the trim painted. Adds a lot more definition.

Also got a set of some tiny 2x1mm magnets to mount on the knights arms and torso. So ready for future upgrades. Maybe not as necessary for Questoris knights, as I got 3 sets per Legio already, but good for Cerastus and Acastus pattern knights once they get their different layout weaponry.

First battle today. My daughters Legion Morris Titan "Black Skull" killed my knight support banne in the first round with one hit from her Bellicose Volcano Cannon. Luckily though, my Legion Gryphonicus Warlord was able to cripple Black Skull before it could get into melee Range with its fearsome Arioch Energy Claw. Her knight were only able to cause superficial close combat damage before being taken out.

Hey there, found some time to carry on and painted my take on the House Vyronii base colors for 3 Questoris and 3 Cerastus Knights on the carapace and shin guards.

Hi therea new update on the Gryphonicus Titan. Did the head and gave it a wash of Nuln oil as well. And a decal for the right shoulder. GW decals are thick and stiff unfortunately, but they conform well enough after MicroSol application. Needs a matt coat to blend in though. Thnaks for looking.

Ha, my first game was with my daughter too. Lots of cinematic carnage.

 

The latest progress is looking good, I like your choice of green for House Vyronii.

Cheers Will, I guess that is the great fun about this game. We gonna start a training camp this weekend with missions, like Cerastus Titan hunts, to get us deeper into the rulese.

 

ATM I don´t have too many vibrant colors, that is because I only did AFVs before. So it wasnt too easy to mix greens that looked right for the knights.

Hey there, most of the Basics on the Vyronii Knights done. Have to do washes and edge highlights and maybe some more touchups after washes. Those acrylic washes arent as forgiving as enamel products.

Hey there Dalek. I started with AK Dark Green mixed with Army Painter Greenskin, added in some Vallejo Model Air Camo. Light green and to get it even lighter I added Army Painter Daemonic Yellow and Vallejo Off White. No fixed ratios, just went on until happy with the result.

Hey tthere, got a few highlights onto the metal areas and onto the heads for easier definition from afar. Also tried myself on the Ion Shield Generators. Also did some subtle heat effect with orange wash, glaze of purple then of blues. But this is rather dark and doesnt really show on these pictures though. I am not really sure if I should spend more time on these besides the base decoration and the banners of course.

 

Here ist the Banners of knights facing each other in anger.

I really like those, the off-white and metallic finish looks spot on

Cheers guys. It should be Malinax, as my other set of traitor knights. Colour is bone and grey. The scorpion decals will be added soon.

Hey there dear people. Happy New Year to all of you. Here is some progress on the Cerastus lance. Added the decals and placed some located mat varnish over only the decaled areas. What i also did since the last ist some more work on the energy lances and the shields. Also added an oil wash of some blue to some areas.

As well as the base treatment that I will use on those Tabletop  miniatures.

I guess the next steps are wahes for the trims and them some final highlights and go to the next set of minis.
