The masses have faith in the Warmaster as their shield. I have something a little more potent!
– Omega-78, Shame-Scion of House Perdaxia
Here’s a new idea I’ve been brewing for a little while – an “energy” shield with LED explosion effects. I was quite pleased with how my Lamenter with breacher shield and impact explosions turned out, but I thought the idea could be expanded and built on. The impression that I wanted to give was that the model was protected by an invisible bubble of energy that was suddenly becoming visible as it reacted to an exploding projectile. I’m quite pleased with how it turned out!
As of this morning I now have a brand new LED energy shield tutorial on my tutorials page if anyone is interested in having a go at this themselves. This project has occupied pretty much all my hobby time for the last five weeks. In the Age of Corona, between working from home and home schooling two young children on lockdown, I haven’t had a lot of time to spend hobbying.
I’ve been interested in Adeptus Titanicus since it was first announced (I used to play a lot of Epic Armageddon) and I’ve had a couple of Titans sat on the ‘Shelf of Shame’ for about two years now! I’m glad that I’ve finally been able to put one together.
This Knight Lancer is from House Perdaxia who threw in their lot with the Warmaster during the Horus Heresy. So why House Perdaxia? The Titan Legion I will ultimately be collecting is Legio Fureans – I just love their retro yellow and black flame colour scheme! Plus we already have plenty of Loyalist Titan Legions in our gaming group, so we really needed another Traitor. I chose House Perdaxia for the Lancer as they are listed as one of the Knight House who regularly support Fureans. I was also intrigued by their background – Perdaxia removed their colours and iconography at the start of the Heresy and adopted those of Legio Fureans. The Knight Scions even abandoned their old names, adopting strange code names instead. What led them to do this? What secret shame do they hide? It’s an interesting question that I’m going to enjoy thinking about!
That’s it for today. More Adeptus Titanicus to come soon – I have to make the other Knight Lancer in the pair – as well as more 40K and Age of Sigmar. See you all again soon.
