A new project! Long time nurtured, as usual, but finally commited to it :) I don't usually show unfinished stuff, you know, but please indulge me this time, I'll try to make it worth of. Eventually :D
Some time ago I got this beauty. An Imperator Titan (Weeee!!)
|Ahem. Some Mechanicus repairings needed|
I've been trying to get back to Epic for a few years. I'm afraid I skipped the original Space Marine game, I first got on this when the 2nd Ed. was released back in the late nineties. I've played this not that many times, and I'm in the mood for getting back to it. I'm a little bit lost on the rules with all that NetEpic and Epic Armaggedon stuff, I bet I still have to do some research (advice welcome!)
Buuut, about the Titan. Massive war machines erected to the Omnissiah's own image and likeness, the Imperator class Titan is the largest of all, bearing unspokable destructive power on the enemies of the Emperor. Though designed for Epic, the mini of course is not to scale. If we consider the average infantry soldier to be 6mm high for the game, this monster should be... 20, 25? cm high. I recently spotted a guy over the internet using an Imperial Knight (28mm scale) as an Imperator Titan and, oh, man, that really rocks!!
Anyway. My Titan. Thanks to the magic of Oyumaru I was able to rebuild the whole four towers on the corners:
|Hell yeah, now that's a cute walking cathedral|
I wasn't sure of what colours would fit in here. We all of course remember the astoundishing original art of the red Titan:
Well, too Red Era for me. I'm going just the opposite way:
|Just in the unlikely event you didn't know of this (Boooo!)|
|This poor big fella is feeling blue|
The cold colour scheme works nice here, I believe. After the metals, I'm trying some grey/white on the big plasma weapon and the spires.
|I added a MDF base, it was constantly falling down|
Now I'm currenty with all the upper part, the war cathedral. I hope it's finished in a few days! Stay tuned!
