all models I bought! To be sure for Adeptus Titanicus. But still, quite an (unexpected) accomplishment. The last models I had on sprue were these two Warhound titans and two Cerastus Knights.
|Two Warlord Class scout titans march onto the field.|
I followed the same recipe for these Warhounds as I did for all the previous titans in my Legio Ignatum maniple. Warhounds are the smallest class of titan which made assembly rather speedy. As with the Reavers no easy option to magnetize weapons has been included. A pity, but I just took a best guess at what would work and went with it.
|I still can't get enough of the classic yellow/black and red panel color scheme although a small voice in the back of my mind has started whispering about the general coolness of Legio Mortis as well.|
As with the Reavers I decided to just alternate armour plates. Painting half yellow with black stripes and the other half red. Then during assembly I just switched them out between the two titans. The only part that required a bit of thought were the legs. I used a fancy leg plate on the Warhound to the right in the picture above. To contrast the gold it is completely red. The other leg plate has yellow black stripes. The Warhound on the left has leg plates that are half red, half striped. All that took was some judicious application of masking tape.
|Im actually not well verse enough in 30K/40K lore to say a lot about these Cerastus Knights. The one on the left reminds me of a Cylon.|
|Never mind the big war machines around us, knights united will not be ignited!|
|With my maniple finished I will have to face sitting down and actually reading the rules (I'll probably find out I should've stuck other guns to my titans).|
I probably have said it a few times before while blogging on the subject of Adeptus Titanicus, but these models are awesome. The amount of detail is insane. If I compare it to the classic board game, even colored by my rosy memories, they still blow them out of the water. GW should most definitively make a fresh version of Epic. I want to stomp on traitor space marines!
Lets end up with a few extreme close-ups.
|Wheeee, I managed a close up that does not make my paint job look like its applied by a drunk 5 year old riding a merry-go-round.|
|Of my two Warlords I still love this titan the most, maybe I should name him.|
|Everybody ready and paying attention? Lets start the song and dance routine on three....one...two...|
