Warlord Titan: Gun shields and laser jet transfers

Hi all. 

More progress on Bone Garland this week for me. This step was one of the scariest for me but luckily it turned out to be an utter dream. 

So. When the Warlord first made an appearance, we were shown some gun shield transfers for the volcano cannons. Unfortunately these didn't make it on to the Titan transfer sheets, so the gaming community would either have to put other versions of what they think should be on the gun shield on or make their own. 

A good friend of mine offered to make some for me and I jumped at the offer. 



Here they are. Now I used transparent laser jet water slide decal paper for this. Which means if you don't have access to a printer which prints in white you technically have to print white as transparent and have the surface you are applying the transfer to as white (no big issue at all). 
So the paper goes in, you press print and it is done and ready to roll. 

Cut out and put in water. 

White surface with a layer of micro set. 

Transfer on. Wiggle to fit (note that what appears to be white on the decal is actually a clear window to the White). 

Flatten to the gaps using more micro set and a wet cotton wool q tip. 

Repeat until complete. 

Brass was added. Then I air brushed with Klear. 

Then I covered it in my oil mix and buffed it off when dry (see last weeks for full guide). 



Then onto Bone Garland. 


He is fully assembled so he earnt himself a trip to Warhammer World. Just a few more markings, some more weathering and some banners and he is done :)

  2. Drake, your reverence for Bone Garland is evident in every one of these posts. Obviously not everyone can afford to own a Warlord but it is so nice to see someone who can that really appreciates the model.

  3. Mate those transfers look amazing, great job. I can understand why you'd be a little nervous about them but they turned out awesome!

  4. Wow! Nice work. Looks fantastic. You managed to get the cut-out shapes exactly right too. How did you do that so precisely?

    1. Hi. The extents of the transfer segments is measured and marked on the transfer exactly.

  6. Wow...i did not expect that. Any reason why you didn't do the brass first?

    1. Hi Greg. Well the transfer could lip up to the raised brass edge so wanted the option to paint up to or over.

    2. Drake,
      Aaaaaaah. Makes sense. I just saw the transfers go down, and then you painted. The whole time I imagined my self sneezing and putting a huge bronze streak across the transfer...

  7. Great stuff. Any thought on puting up the outline for the sections on the titan owners club resources page? Guess it could help alot of people. Getting my pledge bottles soon, thanks for the great tips and blog posts!

  8. Any chance for a copy of the file? Just finished my warlord titan for the legio astorum and definitely considering doing mortis for my 2nd warlord. Cheers

    1. Hi. I won't give you the file, but if you join Titan Owners Club and email me we can discuss sorting you a bespoke set based on your Titan's heraldry (his left knee pad pattern). Bone Garland is diagonal black and red chequers.

  9. Drake,

    I've followed you on here and Titan owners. I'm getting my Legio Tempestus Warlord started and would like to talk about your decal method. You should be able to find my Reaver build on TOC #1833

    2. Hey Drake, sorry for the delay, quick family vacation. I'm having a hard time finding your email on the site.

  10. Oh man, that's so AWESOME in the truest sense of the word....

  11. That's very inspiring. I'm following your updates. There's not a whole lot of legio mortis color scheme references out there, so this is very helpful.

  12. Titan looks great... But the last pic... The table.. Is that a different new plastic sector imperialis board type or a resin one?

    1. Hi. Nope it's a Warhammer World Cut and shunt. Shrine world Borealis I think it is called.
