You should just use varying styles of black - blue black, red black, Dark Grey etc.

i know the vehicle pain... my scheme is a three layer drybrush to make a dusty grey, black trasks and weapons... need to add details to get the "third color" and with these numbers it is easy to get bogged down.

First Colour on Phil's emperor titan complete - 5 more to go!!

Image

Yes, that is my storm talon beside the foot.

Yes there are a tonne of rivets on these monsters.

Yes that is my Emperor Titan in the background - ready to receive the first layer of colour.

The next picture will be both titan's fully painted. But we are documenting each step as we go.

I believe the organizers will take bribes. Just slip $50.00+ (US or CDN - matters not!) to Jay, Matt or Dave and that will help you get one of the tables opposite of Phil or I.

But be warned - last year's Apocalyptic explosion rules are still in effect. Might I suggest you get all of your models as close to my Emperor titan as possible in case I roll poorly on my 8D6, explosion radius.

Can you even fit that many models into the 4'x24" space on the table?

I imagine with the number of points I'm bringing, I'll have more than 1 table to deploy on.

Also, a lot of the models are in transports and/or IA fortifications. I just like the sound of '700+ models!'

With 700+ models, chances our he has enough points to warrant 2 tables. I was running just south of 14k points last year, and was spread over two tables and three opponents (mind you, one was a no show), and that was grey knights... I had a lot of empty board...
