Showcase: Dark Eldar Titan

I'm coming back with a bang this month, showing off a Dark Eldar titan commissioned by Chris E.  Chris was looking for a centerpiece for his DE army and this titan is the perfect choice; it's big, flashy, and a damn cool model.

Let's take an up-close look!

A couple of years ago I assembled a titan with sonic lances, but never got around to painting it.  With that build I modeled it charging around an Eldar warp gate and knew that was exactly what I wanted to do with this one as well.

A few sheets up plasticard cut and glued together made an excellent warp gate, and with a little procreate to make two wraithbone bubbles, and foam putty to texture the base I was off to the races and ready to paint.

We decided on a dark "Incubi Darkness" base highlighting to ice blue that I really liked.  Tons of red accent tattoos and German grey ghost tattoos really rounded out the model.

The two warriors hanging on true raider-style put the piece over the top.  The handles they're clinging to were made from a tube of plastistruct cut in half and filed to fit.

My favorite warrior, I love how she's really hanging on for dear life!

A fun little Easter egg on the base is the fact that the titan landed on a rock formation in-stride and the rock is springing up, shattering under the titan's weight!

If you see this, I think you run... and then hope for best.

And that's it!  Thanks for stopping by and checking out my latest project!
