Da Red Gobbo

Games Workshop have been running a little competition, where you create a wish list and tell them what you love and why you should win. So seeing some other entries I was inspired to do a little art based on the Red Gobbo, maybe I'll win something, but mostly it was just a nice drawing exercise.
Please, if you stumble across this page, do feel free to print these out and give your little Gobbo's some alternative colouring. There is a example at the bottom of the page. Happy colouring.

Adeptus Titanicus - Pallidus Mor Banners

Now while I don't mind painting banners, with Titans, it seems like there are a lot to paint. Banners for the Titan, banners for the weapons, banners between the legs. So to save me a bit of hobby time, I've put a few together in a image package I have on my tablet. I've yet to test them, but the few that I did print out seemed to work out okay. At the moment I'm think the weapon banners need to be about 140px (pixels) to fit the scale, but I'll revise this as I do some test.

The image above was the first test I did, its take from the Pallidus Mor image you can find online and merged with a 'Griffins' banner that I found. It worked okay, so I moved on a bit and came up with the next set. Which as you can see I've tried to give them a background image to fold the paper behind, then did the same with some weapon banners that I found. All this while trying to make each banner a bit different, with changes in the number of markings.
After this I started working on some plan banners for the Titans, while adding some more for the weapons, replicating the image be changing them a little.

Then finally with the ones below, I've added some text, also with a little variation. Though they work rather well, I still have some more work to do with them in order to make each one unique.

Adeptus Titanicus - Pallidus Mor

Seems that I've got into Games Workshops re-release of a title back from the 80's, which is pretty much when I got into board gaming, miniatures and RPG. This one is Adeptus Titanicus, something that before I had a clear-out I still had a few bits of. The rules are fundamentally different to the old rule set, while the background is still based in the Horus Heresy. The main thing that would be noticed is that the models are to a 8mm scale, rather than the 6mm of the original. When you look back at the minis, that size seemed very flexible.
I've adopted a old Legio that also dates back to those old mini's, though the information was scarce. But I've just recently listen to a audio book of the Legio most famous battles, with their whole attitude to how they recruit and train being key in my decision.
I've managed to get enough Titan's built and painted in a short time to enable me to have a decent sized Legio. though I have about the same again in boxes ready to get built further. I did concentrate on getting the Reaver titans painted up first, as they are my favorite of the models. Having got a airbrush from my wife at Christmas helping me speed the painting up a lot, though I still haven't managed to master using it fully.

This is the first titan I got painted up 'Anathema Tenebris',Dark Trooper. Who's stood upon the remains of a original epic Warhound.

I decided on a green Nurgle theme for the old Warhound.

The second is 'Tenebris Venandi' Dark Hunter, who I got mostly painted up. So I added some extra detail.

I also build a 'Warp Missile' from some spares as GW don't currently have a sprue with one on.

Once I got my eye in for how I wanted the Titans to look, I painted up 'Tenebris Opera Dissipantis', Dark Destroyer. Generally I use this one as the leader of Legio so the princeps. As per the other Titans, all the Legios art work is hand painted. Though I have used a few general transfers on them to add some clearer detail to the Titans.

Then we have the Warhound class titans, 'Lupus Ultori', Avenging Wolf.

With some alternative weapon options via magnets.

Then 'Lupus Irasatur', Angry Wolf.

And alternative weapon options.

Whole Legio together.

I've also been working on some Knights, but I'll add those in another post.

The Dark Destroyer with alternative weapons via the help of some magnets.
