Reaver Battle Titan

I now have my boxed set of the Precept Maniple Battleforce and the set includes the Reaver Battle Titan.

The Reaver Titan forms the mainstay of most Titan Legions, and is a key component of many Adeptus Titanicus maniples. Swifter than its Warlord cousins and more durable than the smaller Warhounds, with a wide range of devastating weaponry, the Reaver Titan is the perfect addition to any battlegroup.

The kit comes with three sprues for the Reaver.

I started construction and have finished the core legs.

I will paint these before adding the shields on the legs.

I have been browsing the web, Instagram and Twitter looking at how people have been basing their Adeptus Titanicus titans. I was a little surprised by how many people were using Epic models and scenery.

The new Adeptus Titanicus is a different scale to the original Adeptus Titanicus (and Epic) with a figure scale of roughly 8mm compared to the 6mm of Epic. In other words a third larger!

However I knew I had a box of old Epic 40000 ruins sprues somewhere in the garage and went to hunt them down. I was a little surprised by how many of them I had in the box.

So I took some of the ruins and affixed them to the bases that came with the titans, focusing initially on the Warlord Titan and the Reaver Titan (as I had constructed their legs so had an idea of where I could put the scenic items.

I also used some plasticard strip, as well as a few spare parts I had from one of my Ork Aeronautica Imperialis model kits.

This is the Reaver Titan base.

Overall I quite like the bases.

Having done that I added some slate rubble from an old Warhammer 40 Urban Basing Kit. This I left to dry before then finishing off the base with some Citadel Sand.

I then gave the base a white undercoat.

With some Titan legs.

I had given the legs of the Titan a basecoat of Leadbelcher.

Next step will be a basecoat for the base.
