WARLORD - Stencils and airbrushing can really give you a better result!


The videos are coming thick and fast now as I'm feeling the pressure to have it all done in advance of AdeptiCon. Stencils and decals arrived on Monday night from Fallout Hobbies, so yesterday I took a bit of time to get stuck in and finish off the armor plates : )


Not long now!

    1. The edge was much sharper than I was expecting, much better than any masking I've done with tape before.

    1. Thanks, mate. You'll be at AdeptiCon next week, right?

    2. Afraid not, wasn't able to get into any of the Heresy events so ended up giving the weekend a miss, sadly. Just means a bit more fun money for GenCon and NOVA! Have a good time!

  4. Looking very sharp! Got to look into getting some of those stensils. Could you post a link? Thanks in advance.

    1. Here's a link to the Fallout Hobbies site: http://www.fallouthobbies.com

      The stencils that I used were custom sheets, so I don't think you'll be able to find them directly. Just send Ron a message, tell him you saw them on my blog, and he'll get you sorted.

  5. I did the same on my Reaver using tape, but the stencil looks much quicker not having cut hunderds of little squares. I may get a set when I tackle my warlord.

    Nice to see even the best miniature painters struggle to get the little buggers off too!

  6. Be this Hell's Daughter from Legio Crucius?

    You will have the support of my Legio Crucius Reaver Titan - Ferrus Censura during the Titanicus engagements. I look forward to supporting you in battle at Adepticon.

    1. Not Hell's Daughter, but Domitor Fortis (Powerful Conqueror) ; )

      I look forward to having the support of another Legio Crucius Engine. Together, they shall crush all before them!

    1. Yup I'll be there! I'm not in your class but I'm in the titan one (which I assume it'll make an appearance!)

    1. Thanks for that. It has been a long road, and I've learned quite a bit.

  9. Dave,

    I had a blast playing with Legio Crucius! Thank you for putting these together for the Titanicus events! I ended up betraying Crucius and shooting your Warlord in the ass in the third event, but brought victory to the Imperium during the 2nd event! I had a blast and I will be returning next year with Hell's Daughter Warlord titan to snuff out Chaos with the titans of Legio Crucius once more!
