Paint chipping has started. This is going to take a while. On the other hand, I really enjoy doing it. I may pivot to painting the missing bits like the las cannons and bolt guns in a bit, but for now I chip.
This is very WIP at the moment. The oils are still wet and haven't been tidied up, but look at this thing! This is a huge power fist. It is the size of a human hand. What an insane model the Warlord titan is. I guess the only question now is which four letter word to paint across the knuckles.

I started working on one of the arm weapons yesterday and realized I needed a hoist to make it easier to paint. Beasts like this kit, require so many weird work arounds to make building possible. It is a lot of fun.
Also, here is a head update. I've started adding some rust/debris streaking. The other panels have not be touched yet besides pin washing.

I'm finally at the enamel phase, where I get to add pin washes around all of the panels. Once they are done, I glue them on move on to the next panel. By the end of the week all of the panels should be completed, and the streaking can commence!

I've had some primer issues as well as lacquer issues, so the only progress I have really made is in blocking the head and gun cowling colors. Unfortunately, I can't get paint to stick to the gold trim on parts of the gun cowlings, so I might be forced to scrub them down and repaint. This would not be terrible, since they already have a crackly texture due to GW varnish going on poorly.

This is guy is really taking shape now that the top panels have had their color blocked in. The head and guns are next, to be followed by the torso panels. Those will be difficult as they are attached to what feels like 6 pounds of resin, so maneuvering them is difficult. I think the cleanup, chipping, and enamels will be easier than the color blocking process, but who knows, this beast has been surprising to paint all along.

The panels keep on coming. I'm thinking about making the main top plates black with yellow flames. That would ease up on the eyes a bit. The head is going to be white. The eyes...well orange of course!
This is still just color blocking, so there are a lot of paint defects. I just need to see the whole heraldry at once.
