|Epic 30k Titans from loyalist and rebel factions...the galaxy will burn!|
I haven't painted much Epic 30k myself this Challenge, and that didn't seem right to me, so I approached the vast pending pile here at home last week and present to you some Titans - the penultimate war machines of the 30th Millenium!
|Legio Mortis titans, with a some 6mm Space Marines to give a perspective on the size of the models|
|Legio Gryphonicus engines with same Space Marines, again for size perspective...|
|Warhound class from the War Griffons, sporting Vulcan Mega Bolter and Plasma Blastgun|
|The specifics of the weapons are boring - bottom line, they wreck sh!t|
|Reaver class titan of the War Griffons|
|Sporting a gatling cannon, a volcano cannon and apocalypse launcher (on top)|
|A bit of weathering on the feet...all that dust from the march, no matter how big you are...|
|Reaver class titan from the Death Heads|
|The beast is sporting a volcano cannon, turbo lasers and the ubiquitous apocalypse launcher (most common feature of this variant of titan)|
There are four Titans shown in this submission, but only three were painted during the Challenge. The Warhound for Legio Mortis was painted last summer. I don't know what they will count for points-wise. I suppose they are 6mm vehicles, but they are really damn big 6mm vehicles. Paul and Alan will sort it out...
These models will see action during an Epic 30k demonstration game here in Winnipeg in a couple of weeks. I'm looking forward to taking the Horus Heresy to "epic" levels - and I hope the other fans of Epic 30k continue with their own outstanding projects! Keep it up guys, it's great to see.
By Paul: Oh I do love me an epic scale Titan and have more than a few in a box. Its quite fun to see a bunch of them duelling on the battlefield, completely ignoring the masses of infantry, tanks and artillery scuttling about them. I once had half an army wiped out when a critical hit on a Titan triggered a nuclear meltdown, with rather disastrous consequences to all the Imperial Guard infantry arrayed around it!
Great job Greg. Noting their size, I've scored these as 40mm figures - I wish them well in their perpetual fight in the service of the dark Gods!
