As the title suggests I'm dipping my toes into a new game. Namely Adeptus Titanicus!
|Painted up my first Warhound.|
As many of you will know, I am a regular 40k player. However, a number of factors have made me want to move away from 40k. First off, lockdown due to Covid-19 has caused a dramatic decrease in the number of games I've been able to play over recent months. This, coupled with the increasing complexity of faction special rules (most prevalent with Space Marines) has made me lose interest somewhat. I still love 40k and still want to play it, but it feels like time for a bit of a step back and to try something new.
I've wanted to try smaller scale gaming for some time but have been put off of Adeptus Titanicus due to the pricing. However, as it was my Birthday this month I was able to get the starter set as a gift from my lovely wife. So far, I'm very impressed with the miniatures and the rules, although I've yet to try them out on the tabletop.
|I chose Legio Fureans, basically because they look cool.|
In terms of the awesome little titans, my plan is to paint them up as two different forces. That way I might be able to do a bit of socially distanced gaming with them. I've chosen Legio Fureans as my traitor forces and painted up the first warhound in their colours. I've named her Bavajuda, which roughly translates as Spite.
For the loyalist forces, I'm thinking that it will be Legio Atarus. That way I can set all the battles within the second Paramar V campaign which creates a nice historical narrative.
|Final shot of Bavajuda.|
Sorry for the lack of posts recently. Working from home has somehow left me less time for blogging (I kind of feel like it should be the other way around!) I will make the effort to do more regular updates here so you can follow my Titanicus journey.

|Some tasty transfers too.|
|Detail of the base.|
Hopefully I will be doing another post shortly showing off some of the other things I've been painting while at home. Come back soon and check it out!

|A scythed Hierodule, kind of a classic model.|
|Ok, she's a little goofy, but I still like her.|
Next up we have another classic Forgeworld sculpt, the Hive Tyrant.
|Getting some 'Alien' vibes off this one.|
Why stick with one Hive Tyrant when you can have two? I also painted myself a Swarmlord!
|Bonesabres are cool.|
Apparently I love painting Tyranid HQ choices, so I went and added a pair of Neurothropes too.
|One of the two in question.|
Once I'd done all of that lot (and a few other bits) I got all giddy and decided to get the entire swarm out for some photos. Unfortunately they were a bit difficult to photograph but I think the overall impression is nice.
|The Great Devourer hungers.|
|Some of the zoomed in shots are a little better.|

|Behold! The finished Dreadnought.|
|I particularly like the eye lenses.|
|Got a bit freehandy with the shoulder pad.|
|Shows the raised areas of the base a bit better.|
|How about another Dreadnought??|
I'm finding Monster March this year to be particularly inspiring. The other participants are putting in some amazing work and Swordmaster is doing a brilliant job showcasing it over at Path of an Outcast. Keep the momentum going everyone!
That's all for now, come back next week to see if I've managed to make a dent in my second entry this month.

|A bit messy at this stage, but plenty of colours on there.|
|I'm reasonably happy with the pose.|
|The left leg has had the most work so far.|
Tune in next week to see if I've maintained progress, who knows, I might have a second model to announce!

|Classic blog stuff.|
I love messing about with big resin kits so this was a heck of a good time for me. It's nice to have a post about it on the blog too so I can go back and enjoy it again.
I'm also going to share a battle report from Tabletop Apocalypse when my Tyranids took on his Steel Legion back in 2018. It was a brilliant game and it's a great write up too so you should go and read it now:
