Yeah the reaver seems to have gained a bit of height from not having the legs splayed out; it's not as tall as one of the beetleback warlords. I finished posing the second one and constructed a laser burner from a turbolaser destructor arm. I couldn't bring myself to kill an OOP flamer arm to make the melta cannon so it looks like I'll either go with 2 laser burners and a apoc launcher for it or the laser burner, inferno and apoc launcher.

All that remains is washing the pieces tonight and attempting to get the bases built so I can start painting tomorrow.

The posing was pretty simple to do, just applied enough pressure with my hands near the hips to bring the legs back to a more functional distance apart and then made a small cut at the base of the knee where the upper leg joins to let me bend it easier.

well some bits arrived today from Oman and well, they just begged painting up while working on the reavers so here is the quickly painted ragnaruss. That means tonight was very busy with two reavers basecoated, most of the metals done, this, and writing a paper while studying for my final in contemporary art.

Nice Reaver pose. It kinda reminds me of the FW one now. Hope you don't mind if I "borrow" that idea Vaaish?

p.s. Lovely Armageddon Basilisks. Good paint job and great models. Otter outdid himself on those.

Love the pose on your Reaver. Looking forward to seeing it painted.

Thanks Y'all, The reavers are on schedule to be finished by the end of the week, doubling the size of my AMTL force. I'm seriously tempted to do up a company or two of the hybrids to use as russes, I'm much more fond of the form than the standard russ and it kinda has a WWII german Panzer feel to it.

Hmmm...those ragnaruss look great! All i've got (as ragnarok standins) are some MK1 Russ with the lascannon lopped off and a dozer blade attached :-(

Hey all,
This is an open call for help. My wehost seems to have gone completely down without warning for the last week and are unresponsive. This means I've lost all of the files that were in my WIP folder and all of my non attached picture links are not broken. Since I can't get the files, if anyone has any pics they might have downloaded from my threads, could you please attach them so I can re upload the images?

Great stuff there!. The Reaver titan is possibly my all time favourite model, but I think your reposing just made it a notch better!.

What shade of gray do you use for the armor?

the armor isn't any particular shade really. I prime it in gray about the same shade as codex gray then do two or three washes of black on top before a white drybrush and a wash of ultramarine blue (the GW color) and a final toning wash of black.
