Well, I've finally done what I have been thinking of doing for over 2 years, getting a TITAN!
After seeing all the awesome titans people on this board has made, I too gave in and got my very own. The plan is to have a titan of the Legio Mortis, Deaths Heads, the badguys of the Heresy
I haven't decided on a name yet but I have played around with a english-latin translator online and come up with a few. The most likely is "Semper Victus" which roughtly translates to "Ever Living", but I gladly welcome other sugestions
According to fluff, Mortis mostly turned to Nurgle. This combined with me reading Mechanicus from the Horus Heresy novel series made it an easy choise. For a while I considered to go for a less known, Nurgle-aligned Titan Legion, or even just paint it in roughly the same colours as my army. But since there's not alot of info on the net about the colour scheemes of the Traitor Titan Legions I settled on Mortis, the most infamous of them all
I found this cool logo sheat on BellofLostSouls decipting the Mortis colours and banners. I aim to follow this as close as I can. I also found inspiration from this guys Mortis titans over at DakkaDakka. He have some great pictures of how the colour scheeme hopefully will look in the end.
But enought ramblings, on to the pictures!
Whats this? A package from Forge World? I wonder what it contains...
By Nurgle, it's a Titan!
And last but not least, the obligatory certificate with serial number and everything. Makes me all warm and fuzzy inside
(Seem's like I ordered my titan just before our friend Riptor, the Lawman with his warhound no. 1403. Check out his log here (The Lawman and his Warhound.))
Shrine of the Aquilla and cracked pavement. The idea is that the titan just stomped the shrine with one foot, probably on the eagle itself and crumbled walls and rubble. But I haven't decided yet, so we'll see
Another lovely warhound blog, a this brings back soo much sweet memories.
But damn you and Riptor are really making me want to get another titan, oh how I hate not beeing able to do that right now.
Still I will be closely following this.
BTW if you want something special for the eyes of your warhound use colour clear plastic, I used clear red plastic for my warhound and it helps making the titan seem more alive.
(btw, do you have a pic of the eyes of your titan close by, or a link to a thread? seeing how others has done it is a great help to me )
On another note... all the big parts have now been properly trimmed and are ready for dry-fitting. Just the very small and fiddly parts to go. All in all, I'm happy that there is so little to be trimmed and no really big warpage.
Well, here it is. The first dry-fit of the project and it all seems to fit pretty good
I also got hold of a wooden box that used to house pencils and stuff. Now it contains all the small parts of the titan. It's quite handy and also has a seperate lid so you don't loose it all if you knock it over or something.
Gah! Another titan!! *hopes Luftwaffel has no plans to come to the 2010 LO Meet* Too many titans!
Kidding aside, great to see yet another one of these beasts. Having seen the great job done on others on the forum and elsewhere, I can't wait to see how you do this one. Big beasts, eh?
As for the base, there was one great thing I saw, by one of the members at the LO Meet this year. They had a marine with a rocket launcher underneath the titan's striding legs. If you're going for a cityfight look that would be cool - having a brave marine take a pot shot at it. Just a thought.
