And here's the finished Titan ready to do battle.
Some notes on painting this project:
+ The scheme was decided by my client to match his own craftworld.
+ I tried to really blend my highlighting for smooth transitions.
+ I brought some highlights up brighter than others based on location.
+ The palette was limited to only a couple colors.
+ I went with a green wash over the metals for an exotic, Eldar look.
+ I limited which gems were made red to avoid the "Christmas Tree look."
All in all, this was a fairly easy model to paint but a huge departure from painting regular Space Marines. with so much open area and just the sheer scale of this thing, I used larger brushes for most everything and had to change the way I normally paint.
Like everything else with a project this size, you really need to have a plan before you start... from the pose, to the base, to the color scheme and everything in between, you need to know exactly what you're going to do ahead of time.
With a little bit of work (a lot actually) these are great looking models and lots of fun to take on as more than a weekend project.
I think Ron has nailed this project, it looks great. I would also like to point out that he mentioned this was, "a fairly easy model to paint". I think some people are intimidated by resin because they think it will be difficult to work with.
While I agree the price can be intimidating, the building and painting should not be. As Ron also mentioned, you really need to have a plan. With a decent plan laid out, most of us are capable of adding resin to our repitoire of pewter and plastic skills.
