Just want to share my recently finished Adeptus Titanicus Tile, aswell as a write-up of paints and stuff used - hope you like!

Lupercalia - Civitas District War Zone Gamma
During the Doom of Molech

It is a great coincidence of the Warmaster's invasion that the ultimate prize he sought bore his name. This was the doing of the Emperor, who was also the reason the city existed at all. A site of hidden eldritch power, Lupercalia had begun life as an unwitting garrison set in place by the Emperor to protect his dangerous secret. One of the first structures to stand on the site was the Dawn Citadel, a towering edifice constructed from the hull of the Emperor's ancient starship, placed at the apex of the mountain valley in whish the capital sat. In time, the Dawn Citadel became the ancestral home of Molech's ruling Questoris Familia - House Devine, though not even its lords suspected the great important of the palace that they now ruled.

By the time of Horus' invasion, Lupercalia was among Molech's largest cities, a centre for the ruling elite and a meeting place for the planet's many peoples and cultures. This sector of the city is dominated by a partially destroyed factorum, still defended by strategically sited emplacements. Next to the factorum are storage bunkers, while the shattered remains of an Imperial Knight Warden of House Devine and a downed Xyphon Interceptor of the Ultramarines Legion should just be the first victims of the battle to follow ....

The whole board was washed and than primed with Black Primer spraycan. Where possible, I mostly used my airbrush!
