    Got around to priming more models for painting.

    Gotta have fun with model positioning.

    Still keeping with the high tech theme, kept up in part by an interest in fielding a Kasrkin-like force since 3rd Edition, all of my "normal" infantry for my army are tempestus scions. Not one in favour of the baroque "platemail" look of the default plastic kit's carapace armour, I opted to kitbash Cadian torsos, Tempestus arms, weapons and backpacks, and third party legs and heads from Anvil Industry (specifically, Unity Council Marine heads and Armoured Legs).

    This will also be my standard loadout for the squad: 2 plasma guns, 1 meltagun, 1 hotshot volleygun, 1 voxcaster, and a Sergeant wielding a plasma pistol and power sword. As befits the mechanized nature of my army, they'll eventually have a Taurox Prime to ride in.
    Whilst I anxiously wait for the release of the Titandeath expansion to Adeptus Titanicus, along with several armament options to become available, I figured I'd at least start painting the models I currently have.

    Granted, Legio Xestobiax, the legio I'm painting these as being part of, considers the smaller Warhound-Class titans to be a waste of resources, and instead prefers the larger Reaver- and Warlord-Class titans. Between maintaining a handful of Warhounds and being a small legio in general (50-100 titans at most) however, I'd be willing to argue that these are among the legio's only Warhounds.

    One reaver built, one more to go. My first melee/close range reaver, this one will be painted up as Legio Xestobiax' Septum Caelestis Ues.

    So here's what I have so far of a Taurus Venator I've been converting from an Achilles Ridgerunner.

    I still have some plasticard work to do on the model before I'm finished building it, along with properly assembling the twin lascannon.

    Back to my Salamanders army, I took to building a land raider proteus with a hull-mounted twin-linked lascannon. For 30k, this will be the transport of choice for my 10-man seeker squad.

    As seen in the photo, the track pieces fit poorly as is from the kit, so at some point I will be doing some plasticard work to make a filler track segment. As for the hull-mounted lascannons, they're from a spare predator turret option I had lying around (this particular kit comes with heavy bolters only).

    Progress on the Fellglaive for my Salamanders army!

    So far, I've got most of the hull built, and with none of the track issues I had with the Land Raider Proteus.

    Hull built, primed, and pre-shaded. Same with the turret. All that's left to build are the quad lascannon side sponsons.

    Crunch time on the Salamanders army. As I still needed a standard-bearer in my Horus Heresy army, I decided to build one using parts from the Space Marine Command Squad, some left-over bits from when I was building Bray'arth Ashmantle, and a couple of upgrade sprues from Forge World.

    Finally, the last bit of airbrushing!

    IMG_20190601_161124.jpg

    I'm feeling pretty confident in my "colour wheel" strategy to make up for a lack of Waywatcher Green in my local area, instead using a 3:4 ratio of Guilliman Blue to Lamenters Yellow.

    My Salamanders infantry for Horus Heresy, barring my chaplains, are now officially "tabletop-ready".

    From left to right: Flamer squad, Seeker Squad, Veteran Squad

    I even had a blast so far painting up the Bray'arth Ashmantle torso I'm using for a mortis dreadnought.
