The command HQ stand also comes with its own Rhino for riding in style. I chose a camo scheme suitable for fighting in urban ruins, since that's what my Epic terrain consists of.
Likewise, the basing was kept purposely muted so as to suggest rubble and ruin. I achieved the texture by emptying out a bunch of Earl Grey tea bags, the gluing the grounds to the bases. It's a bit more "in scale" than the basing sand I had on hand.
Speaking of the bases, I went with standard 28mm slottabases rather than the usual wafer-thin bases one typically sees with Epic. The reason I did this was two-fold: first, I like a bit more thickness to my bases when it comes to any scale smaller than 15mm, so that it's easier to pick up without inadvertently grabbing the fragile figures; second, I realized the slottabases were the same thickness as the standard Titan bases. So now everyone's on the same level, as it were, giving an excellent sense of the true scale between the Titans and the swarms of infantry and vehicles.

David, these are brilliant! I think I'm not alone in having a soft spot for all things Titan-esque. Of course, with the genre being generally well-regarded, it has consigned itself to the IP purgatory that GW reserves for its best designed systems. What a bunch of f*cking ijits, I tell ya.
Anyway, GW bashing aside, these models are fabulous. I really like the punchy, high-contrast colours, and your basing is excellent as well. GregB and I did much the same thing with our EPIC basing, abandoning the original (and limiting) strip system for more flexible (and arguably visually pleasing) circular and square bases.
Thanks for the tip on the Dark Realm 6mm proxies. These models are great and you've done them proud. BTW have you checked out the stuff from Onslaught Miniatures? I picked up some of their Sisterhood castings in order to do 'Sisters of Battle' for EPIC (SHHH! don't tell Greg!). :)
Oh, and that Titan is Da Bomb!
Great work David!
