Forge World Reaver Titan

These huge Mars Pattern Reaver Titans were on display at Warhammer World.

The Reaver Battle Titan is a frontline combat titan, designed for direct confrontation with the enemy.

Reavers primarily serve as vanguards for the Warlords, there to fan out and prevent the larger and slower Warlords from being flanked, so they can keep the enemy boxed into the Warlord’s field of fire.

Warbringer Nemesis Titan

This is the Warbringer Nemesis Titan on display at Warhammer World.

The Warbringer Nemesis Titan serves the Collegia Titanica in the role of heavy fire support. It mounts a single Warlord-scale weapon on its upper carapace and Reaver-scale weapons on its arms – sacrificing the speed, armour and manoeuvrability of a conventional Battle Titan in favour of firepower far in excess of its size. Though rare and specialised, the Warbringer Nemesis is a sight to inspire dread in all but the most battle-hardened enemy princeps.

Warlord Battle Titan

There was some (huge) magnificent 40K scale Warlord Titans on display at Warhammer World.

The Warlord appears to be the most common class of Battle Titan in use by the Titan Legions of the Imperium of Man, and many Adeptus Mechanicus Forge Worlds field their own patterns of this class.

Another excellent Warlord Titan.

I sometimes think I would like to get a Forge World Titan, but then I think they are quite expensive (usually in excess of £1000) but would I have the skills to make and paint one, would I have the time? Probably not. So it can remain a dream and I can admire those that are on display at Warhammer World.

Adeptus Titanicus Titans

I did buy the (new) Adeptus Titanicus rules box, but never got around to buying some titans. That might change now, especially as I have enjoyed painting my Aeronautica Imperialis aircraft models.

I think one of my challenges will be painting these models which have an internal “skeleton” and then plates of armour on top. If I construct the model completely then it will be challenging to undercoat and paint. Having read some stuff on the internet, I think the solution will be to partly construct the model and then paint as I go before finally putting the model together. How have you been painting your Adeptus Titanicus Titans? Let me know in the comments or post any useful links for painting guides.

This Reaver Titan was on display at Warhammer World. I do like the dark blue and gold scheme they have used on this model.

A gargantuan war machine, the Reaver Titan is one of the most common and destructive classes of Battle Titan. Armed with devastating weapons and able to crush enemies under its tread by the score, the ground shakes as the Reaver advances and the enemy is left with a choice: flee or die. Reavers are the heart of the Titan Legions, holding the line or leading the charge as their Princeps demand.

I think if I was going to start painting some Adeptus Titanicus models than I might start with a Reaver. This was a (small) Adeptus Titanicus diorama at Warhammer World. It was filled with scenery, as well as Titans and Knights.

Warlord Battle Titans bestride the battlefields of the Imperium, their thunderous tread heralding the destruction of the enemies of Mankind. A mainstay of the Collegia Titanica, Warlord Battle Titans are among the largest and most powerful war machines ever devised by the Mechanicum.

This Adeptus Titanicus scaled Warlord Battle Titan was on display at Warhammer World.

Also at Warhammer World were some wonderfully painted Warhound Scout Titans.

The bestial appearance of the Warhound Scout Titan reveals its purpose to the enemy – a savage hunter in the vanguard of the Titan Legions. Despite its size – still towering over tanks and Knights – the Warhound carries an astounding array of formidable weaponry, proving more than enough to bring down most foes it might face; when fielded as a maniple, combining their firepower in a devastating salvo, Warhounds can be trusted to change the face of a battle in seconds.

I really like this model and the larger scale makes it a much nicer model that the old (smaller) Epic versions. The downside is they cost a lot more.

One of the things I like about Warhammer World are being able to see Forge World model in the flesh as it were. You really get a feel for the size and mass of the model, which isn’t always apparent from seeing it on the website.
