Ok, I just got my warhound titan from the post, now, how do I paint it? do I paint it as my SM colours or do I paint it with IG colours?
Paint it unique.
Titans are not actually part of Imperial Guard or Space Marines, they are the Adeptus Titanicus, a body within their own right.
Therefore you can create a unique colour scheme for it. It might help to put on some areas of paintwork that might tie it into your army but if it's painted in totally different colours (probably just 2 or 3 for best results) it'll have more impact on the field of battle.
Terminator Based Custom Chapter
Which FW variant is it?
Make it a unique colour though as it will become the centerpiece for your army, same with my chaos warhound.
I have 2 warhounds that I built and painted the same colour as my army.
I have built a Warlord Titan and he is being painted by a friend of mine, once done this will have a similar flame effect as the forge world model but be so much more intimidating.
As the others hae said, do what suits you, I like the flame effect, others like the blending effect, i know one guy who has an Ultramarine force and a bright yellow titan, he likes it, so thats all that maters.
Titans belong to the titan legions who have their own colour schemes. A little like space marine chapters only larger :)
As countless (well I could count them if I could be bothered) people have pointed out, Titans are their own organisaion and colour scheme, GW did some nice Fluff on this in the old adpetus titanucus if you can get a look, the 2 colour schemes from 2 imperial titan ordos I used were:
Dark blue with flames around the edge
Dark gray with light gray mottling
Everything you have been told is a lie!
I just uploaded my pre painted Warlord Titan in my gallery, It needs admin approval before it goes up, but I know Dreachon was interested.
It will be painted in a marine blue base with flame scheme all over(done by my friend as I can no longer paint)
