Landscaping the Titan bases

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.

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.

This is the Warlord Titan base.

I then gave the base a white undercoat.

With some Warlord Battle  Titan legs.

I did a similar thing for the Reaver. Continue reading “Landscaping the Titan bases”

This is the Reaver Titan base.

Overall I quite like the bases. The next step will be adding rubble and sand.

Dirtside Rules

Nice to see one of my favourite rule sets of all time, Dirtside II available for free download.

Dirtside II Cover

I played Dirtside quite a bit in the 1990s and even put on a display game for it at Salute one year. I much preferred it at the time to the Epic rules which were around. Though when Epic40000 was released I did start playing those rules for a while.

Dirtside II is a rules system for playing combined-arms ground combat with miniatures in a science-fictions setting.

They were first published in 1993 by Ground Zero Games.

They are now available as free download from the GZG website.

Epic Ork Great Gargants on eBay

Now sold.

OOP Space Marine Epic Space Ork Great Gargant

Epic Space Ork Great Gargant

This is an OOP Epic Space Ork Great Gargant metal model. it is still bare metal, but looks like it was put together using some kind of epoxy resin which would need to be cleaned off before assembly and painting.
The Great Gargant is the most powerful of all Space Ork Mekboy inventions. It’s vast body houses a multitude of orky engines, generators and dynamos. These power its frightening array of awesome weaponry. Mega-cannon mounted in its belly and on its arm blast its foes with massive destructive power. The Super Lifta-Droppa can popund armoured enemies into the ground. The Gork Head has massive Traktor Cannons mounted in the eye sockets to drag its opponents to their certain doom.

Model designed by Kevin Adams. The box contains one complete unassembled and unpainted Ork Great Gargant. The model requires assembly and painting. There is some old glue on the model.

These heavily armoured monstrosities lead the Ork mobz into battle using their huge guns to pound their enemies into oblivion.
