The Revenant Titan is a beautiful kit and I'd wanted to add one to my collection for some time before I finally did in 2019. It has aged well, although the larger components do lack a bit of detail in some cases. A lot of the work on the kit involved adding additional panel lines to address this. I also magnetised the head so that either face mask design could be used.
date: 2019-present (work-in-progress)
components: 1x Forge World Eldar Revenant Titan with Sonic Lances, 1x Forge World Eldar Revenant Titan with Pulsars torso, brass rod, paperclips, plasticard (various thickness), neodymium magnets (various sizes), Green Stuff, White Milliput

2. The plan was to magnetise both designs of face mask so either could be used. To that end, I altered the interior of the cockpit. This photo is a side-by-side comparison of the altered cockpit (left) and unaltered (right).

3. The torso starts to take shape.

4. This close-up of the Revenant's torso shows the various additional panel lines that I have etched into the surface of the resin. This make the design look more detailed and breaks up the large, flat areas.

Eldar Revenant Titan holofield fin
6. Although I'd purchased the variant with Sonic Lances, this Revenant was supplied with the torso design from the other version (armed with Pulsars). Fortunately, I prefer this combination of design of torso and fin, but it meant that the large holofield fin needed some alteration to fit the torso.
Eldar Revenant Titan flight units
7. The large flight units needed a lot of work with White Milliput to correct mould defects.

8. The underside of the flight units. I have used White Milliput to build up the inside of the sockets, so that the pieces will sit slightly higher above the Revenant's shoulders.
Eldar Revenant Titan waist
9. The waist needed a lot of work around the cabling to remove flash and restore lost detail on the ribbing.
Eldar Revenant Titan Sonic Lance housings
10. The gun housings for the Sonic Lances also need work with Milliput to correct mould issues.
