    Hellhound Titan

    I'm thinking of doing something really crazy in the name of our hobby - buying a Forge World Hellhound Titan. I kow that theres maybe a GW Titan coming out, but that will not look closely as cool as the dedicated Chaos Titan, and I strongly believe that GW isnt going to make two different anyway.
    So here's my questions:

    1. In a game of Apocalypse, how powerfull is it? Will it make its points back, or are my opponents Baneblades just too powerfull and shoot it to pieces? Does it need strong support?
    Feel free to argue on this question, as I believe not everyones got any real experience with them.

    2. How much of a hell is it to build? I know it's resing, and resin is always tricky, but is it a nightmare of unnamed horror?

    3. Would anyone of you play against it?

    I'll completely forgo points 1 and 2 for this (not played a game in quite a while, and never had the incentive to buy FW stuff).

    But on point 3, I'd play against anything, given prior warning, and a chance to modify my army a little to counter it.
    Imagine playing 'Nids, and suddenly facing that thing, naturally, some warning so some extra Fex's or Zoanthropes could be mustered to stand a chance of fighting a titan off would be nice.

    Overall, however, I'd say if you like the model, then that should be your primary reason to buy one.

    I love the model, and I doubt anyone can have a disliking of such a masterpiece. But I also want to be able to field it. Having a cool model isnt a reason in itself to buy a $700 monstrosity.

    I had a chance to purchase mine for a great deal on E-bay. I know putting one together is a huge pain so that is something you should think about before you purchase one from FW. I had the chance to play it in a couple of games before Apocalypse and it was pretty much complete failure. The new rules make it cheaper to bring to the table and 4 times as strong. If you find yourself in a place where you'll play a lot of Apoc games then it is a great purchase. I know I love mine. I only wish I could buy a Turbo Laser and Inferno arm for it...

    I "finished" my chaos warhound titan about 2 weeks ago. It is a truly gorgeous model and worth building for aethetics alone. Building the titan was a bit tedious (the leg pistons are a pain) but not horrible and not overly challenging. Painting it can be a lifetime endeavour as the detail is astonishing. I could spend another 100 hours just hitting the cogs and sprockets and such on the frame.

    If someone takes an army with alot of long range high strength firepower (ie lascannons) the titan may not last long. If you consider that you will have a couple turns where your opponent thinks of NOTHING but that monster bearing down on him then you realize it's real value. He can't afford to ignore it- the vulcan mega-bolter (in apocalypse) will wipe out an entire 8-10 man squad of marines per turn on average, and the plasma blastgun hits hard also.

    Sorry to post again (with my quite probably considerable lack of knowledge), but...

    In what ways is it more powerfull in Apocalypse than with the Forge World rules?
    I think I read in a white dwarf that titan killer weapons under the apocalypse rules can insta-kill non-titans. Or something (I was on GW hiatus for the whole "Apo" thing, so I'm not really sure). Making even the mightiest of HQ's/heavy support multi-wound critters a simple one-shot matter.

    Sorry if I'm wrong. But I thought it might help a little! Perhaps.

    Mods, feel free to delete this if it breaks any copyright rules, I don't really want to cause any trouble.

    I'm quite interested in a Titan myself, the question is how to decide what armament i want. So, what is your favourite?
