Sorry, no Halloween special over here, just regular updates (which is more than I can say lately, so I'm quite happy with that!). I've managed to expand my Legio (which begins to need a proper name!). I got two Reaver Titans on eBay:
|Decent price for them among lots of eBay crazyness|
I stripped them and begun the whole assembling & painting process from the beginning.
|In the usual colours, you know|
I'll save you the rest. As you can see, I used blue for the main body and some creamy white here and there for heads and weapons. This is the final result:
|Hewey and Louie, looking for Dewey|
I followed the path of the Imperator, so no gold at all, but black ornaments. That darkens the global view a little but not too much, I hope. I also used the white stripes on the shoulderpad to create a common theme with the Warlord, so they may look kind of similar.
|The happy family so far|
The names for these will be Venator Intrepidus ("Fearless Hunter") and Tonitrus Hastam ("Thunderspear"). For the Legio itself... What do you think about Legio Capitolina? Too mild? I kinda like it, sounds reminiscently classic. I think I'll take that for the moment as a provisional name until I come with something better. I may develop some background for this, hmmm.
Of course what I should get now is a couple of Warhounds. Classic models can be easily found at decent prices, but I really would like to spot some Lucius pattern Warhounds (i.e., modern ones), so they would look more like the Warlord and would make me have a more coherent Legio. Yes, by mixing patterns, I know, sounds just the opposite; but otherwise whay I would have is a Legio made of similar models and then just a single Titan totally out of place. I don't know, I may as well buying a mix of all Warhound models, only time will tell...
