Reaver Titan - Update

I've been working on my Reaver recently, the legs are now painted, as are most of the trims, pistons and a bit more weathering.  It's nearly at the point I can attach some of his armour plates.  I'm glossing the armour plates ready for transfers and the oil wash.  The main thin outstanding is the rear carapace...

I'm think of commissioning some Tempestus transfers, as I have no confidence that these will come until the Mars book, and even then, they need to cover a load of Legions.  Does anyone have any ideas of a good designer?  Let me know in the comments!

The long hobby war contiunes...


  1. Great progress Col. Love the camouflage scheme.

  2. Looking great sir. I'm also at a loss for decals. Just leaving some areas blank in the hopes.

  3. @ Siph, cheers mate! Any progress on the warlord?

    @ BigJon, I'm thinking of talking to fallout hobbies and seeing what they come up with!

    @ Gungrave, goo to hear from you, glad to hear your blogging Again soon!

  4. That looks fantastic man - awesome work!

  5. Col, if you come up with something with Fallout you can count me in.

  6. Hey Col, not sure if you are interested, but a friend of mine worked up a banner in Photoshop for my Mortis Reaver that looks fantastic (or well, I think it does). There are decent examples of Tempestus Banners out there. If you are interested I can work with him to get a Tempestus banner template. Let me know and we can go from there.

    I have never commissioned custom decals so I'm afraid I don't have any recommendations. BigJohnhas had good experiences with Fallouts checkmark masking I think - so maybe give them a try?

    1. And I just saw BigJohns version of the Tempestus banner, pretty awesome! If you have that already Col perhaps there's no need for
      more efforts. Just let me know whenever you have a moment.
