Chaos Reaver Class Titan "Mortal Reminder"

My first real titan (with many more planned of course), the Chaos Reaver Class Titan "Mortal Reminder." This was painted for FNP Wargames. I did try to film the painting for their channel so look out for a video tutorial of sorts later. The entire titan was painted in a day and a half. Luckily I didn't have to do a lot of assembly like Johnathan did most of that (minus what I wanted off for painting of course).

Primed and ready for painting.

Swamp Green for the base color. The metallics are Vallejo Metal Colors.

A couple more shades of green and brown later. I do a lot of my painting like sketching not following a specific color and I don't really remember what I did (hopefully the video footage can help later).

At this point I thought the armor plates were too desaturated so I added a muddly green filter. I originally was going for a super pale look to the armor but it didn't stand out enough from the metallics and I (and most importantly the client) like this color more. The rust and weathering on the metal is all acrylics. No oils, enamels, powders, or other messy stuff. To get a super dry look to the paint finish, I mixed in windshield wiper fluid that evaporates super fast and leaves only the paint pigment behind.

Now the hardest part. All the gold lining done by hand. I think this took 3 or 4 hours. The gold is a mixture of Vallejo Metal Color Bronze and Gold. It's mixed a little different everytime I run out to add a little variation.

Assembly time. I was too lazy to go find brass rod and a drill bit to match the size so I just picked up a pack of 2 big drill bits for $1.97 at Walmart and left them inside the arm with 2 part Epoxy. Apparently Gorilla Epoxy (the most expensive one I could find) has a bond pressure of 3300psi.

I didn't take very many pictures after the last stage since it was just small details. For the right knee plate, I wanted it to look like a daemon was writhing to get out of the titan rather than it just being decoration.
