I have had this model on my painting desk for quite some time, but finally got it finished yesterday. This Warhound Scout Titan represents the first Allied Lords of War weapon that I have added to my Epic Blood Angels force. At 275 points it was not too costly. Again from the 40k Fan Site.
The -class Titan belongs to the smallest class of Imperial Titan, and is used as a scout or as the flanking element of a Titan Legion in conjunction with others of its kind. The -class Titan is thus the most common form of what is classified as a Scout Titan by the Collegia Titanica.
The Epic 30-40k World is quite complex to the uninitiated but I am slowly starting to understand it. As noted above the Titans serve different Forge Worlds and at the break up of the empire during the Horus Heresy like the Legion Astartes, the Collegia Titanica also split into Traitor and Loyalist factions.
My next decision was what loyalist Titan legion I should pick, as I was running through the lists I came upon the name Legio Pallidus Mor. I had made my decision. More from the 40K Wiki.
Their colours are midnight black and ivory which also attracted me. I just could not get the ivory right so I decided to try a yellow glaze and lo and behold, I got yellow. Not initially what I planned but attractive enough and definitely different the my red coloured Blood Angels. First time I used a glaze, I was quite impressed, I will have to experiment some more with them.
It is armed with a Plasma Blastgun on the right and a Vulcan Mega Bolter on the left. I hope I have it right.
|I used the vallejo alcohol based metals a great product.|
|I left the armour on the leg simple with the hope that I could find an appropriate decal.|
|I left the main body simple|
|I got the idea to add a couple of troopers from Iannick. They really add the dimension of scale|
|Need to take down the side view ports (eyes), a little maybe.|
