This is the second such Titan in my collection, and I intend to pick up a couple more this year.

For the armor, I wanted to evoke a scarab beetle's shell, and did some layering with purple, gold, and gloss varnish, achieving a result I'm quite pleased with.
Next up is a throwback to my first entry in the Challenge; it's a new-old figure for my Latigo Posse crew for Malifaux. I mentioned in that initial post that I was having trouble sourcing the original Perdita Ortega (and so had used a proxy from Warmachine). Well, I finally tracked down the coveted figure (and for a really good price, no less!), and so I've painted her up.
I know from a couple games played with the proxy figure that Perdita is a pretty formidable foe on the field, and I'm looking forward to seeing this "authentic" figure take her bow soon.
I was tempted to try and add a cigarillo dangling from her lips, but my sculpting skills aren't quite up to snuff to pull off something as tiny as that.
|The angle on this shot makes it look like the figure is leaning forward. Weird.|

Well, it seems to be a day for Titans which provides a treat for all of us! These are three great figures David. I really like how you've done the tusks on the Titan and the mottled purple on its carapace is fantastic. I'm happy you managed to find Perdita (and at a reasonable cost no less) - you've done a great job on her. Her sweat-stained hat is spot on and so is her weathered chaps.
Finally, I love what you've done for your Curtgeld. Rocket Racoon with his trusty BFG is a brilliant antihero. You've really nailed the texture of his fur and I like that you went old school with the comic book version of his spacesuit. Thanks very much David!
I'll score the Titan as a 54mm figure plus a pip for each tusk. :)
