Imperial Fist Thunderfire Cannon and Titan preview

Well, in my last post I kinda came down on GW for not making a TF cannon with good meeting seams on the barrel...well I was wrong. When I put the stabilisers on the barrel, the seams completely disappear. Sorry GW, my bad.

This model was one of my favorite to ever paint; Techmarines are one of my all time favorite sculpts. The models that are considered your typical TM(the one that come with the servitors) have so much going on on there model, but it doesn't look busy. They look like some crazy eccentric mechanical marine. Which is pretty representative.
I only painted the helmet, right shoulder pad and the arms of the servo arms in a Mars red color. I went with mechrite red, put some badab black in any shadowy areas, and did some subtle highlighting with a 50/50 mechrite red/blood red.

I love this damned cannon. Weep in fear horde players!!

Here we go. Mars pattern Titan from my pal Nick(see past posts with Space Wolves projects). My pal Zach started painting it for him and never finished. Can you friggin' well say dust? YES. I'm torn between taking all the paint off and just finishing what Zach started. On another issue with this monstrous project....I have to assemble it. I'm not really looking forward to it. But I am the modelling masochist, so I had better get on it.

Interior detail.


  1. Man that is some awesome looking thunder cannon with crew. It is very Imperial Fists. Also the Titan looks epic. Ever thought of painting it up in yellow?:)

  2. lol, that would be pretty cool imo, but my customer has the money. so blue it is. nuts.
