Lexius Jobo, the messenger of the truth

I have bought myself a reaver Titan and I am starting to plan this mammoth project. Like last years thunderhawk, this will push my abilities and I want to do this thing justice.  

My plan is for a member of legio peagarus, a close ally of the ultramarines. Famed for the long ranged war fare, this ancient legio was at calth, and fought during the Hersey along side the 13th. After calth, the legio, now much reduced slowly rebuilt. Still a shadow of its former glory, but still holds its former values. Rather than the mass killing and destruction, they prefer the surgical strike, leaving the planet they are attacking as a viable world, once they leave. 

  
My Titan will match their colours, blue, white and gold, so it will match the marines well,  but I want to reflect the ancient nature of the order. My plan is make the substructure look old, with the new plates clean and Crisp, cleaned and repainted after each mission. This old and new, light and dark, will add the presences of the model, but will stretch my painting ability. To aid this I am investing in a new iwata revolution airbrush and I hope this project will improve my airbrushing skills. 

  

Weapon wise, I have looked at lots of other people’s work and the consensus is 2 different weapons, but I wanted to promote the long range precision shooting of the legio. So I have 2 volcano cannons. These will be magnatized up (using really big magnets) I also noticed lots of people don’t use the power pipes for the weapons I want add these, but have a feeling that there is a reason for this! 

  
I will aim for a striding pose, similar to one on the fw website, agian this will be difficult, and the balance is important. 

  
So that is my plan for the Newly named Lexius Jobo. (Jobo is my wife’s old nickname, and she let me spend £620 on a model!)
