Color Scheme!?

So I've been thinking about what I am going to do for a color scheme. Now, I was initially going to go with pretty much the same idea with what Forge world did for theirs, red and brass, mainly since my army is khornate CSM army.

However lately I have been having second thoughts. I've been wanted to paint some of my csm in a different color scheme, I got the idea after playing with the army painter in Chaos Rising. This is what color scheme I came up with:

I was thinking something like that, as my own personal color scheme. I'll probably be making a small personal war band for part of my army as well. obviously the army painter in the game is pretty limited, but I'd probably add a splash of red here and there, since it would still be loyal to khorne.

Otherwise I'd go for the more traditional colors:

My whole thought behind this is, I'll probably not be buying another one of these, at the very least not any time soon. I'd want it to be somewhat unique, that it is my Titan, yet, at the same time, I do like the forgeworld colors.

Anyway, I'm open for ideas and input from everyone.

Let me know what you all think.

Massive Update!

An update, about the Chaos Reaver Titan? Really? Yeah, really!

Finally have gotten around to giving you all an update on my progress so far. Last update I had started pinning and gluing the model.

I got to the point where it was almost all done except for dry fitting the lower leg armor parts, which was a bit problematic since it wasn't lining up properly with the sockets as seen below:

Lucky nothing that can't be fixed with the help of a hair dryer or heat gun. Once the resin gets hot enough you can just bend it into whatever position you need.

Once that was all done, I went ahead and prepared everything for priming. Took small bits of painters tape and stuck it on all the places where I would be gluing parts together.

Next I primed all the parts, using the same method I described before. After that, I removed all the tape that I had attached from earlier.

Unfortunately there were some areas where the primer could not reach, such as here. Might be hard to see, but towards the left side, there is a nice gleaming line of gray where the primer could not hit that well. I'm hope there is enough for the paint to stick, but we will see when I get to it.

There was another problem I didn't realize before, the back ankle piston, there is very little room, which is going to make it very difficult to glue in after, I got a couple of ideas to get around it, for now I'm not going to concern myself too much with it.

Finally came the gluing of all the remaining parts for the leg, only things I left unglued was the leg armor plates, knees, rear upper pistons, all the ankle pistons, and toes. Simply for the reason of being able to access all the areas for painting.

Well there you have it people, a long overdue update on the Chaos Reaver Titan. At this point I can finally start painting the legs. I'll have another update in about week hopefully.

And now time for something entirely different

Ok, not really...

So, most are probably wondering why I have not updated in over a month. Simply put, I have been busy with work and the Olympics in Vancouver. Now that its over, I can finally start making time to work on this beast.

I have made progress and at this point, have primed the leg pieces. Unfortunately I haven't had a chance to upload the pictures yet, I will do after I'm done my work shifts in the next few days.

I will also post some photos of other models I have assembled and painted later as well, including Brass Scorpion from Forgeworld.

So, for now I'll share with some other things I've been working on, that is Warhammer 40k related.

First picture is a Khornate deamon bunny, I got the idea from the fact that Khornate Terminators look like bunnies with the piece on. So, I jokingly drew a picture of that idea.

Since then I have decide to do something for each of the other Chaos gods. I still have Nurgle and Slaanesh to do.
