Ahh, it feels good to complete such a momentous task within a month. Here it is, my Legio Gryphonnicus Warhound Titan. It was christened this afternoon as the Fortis Venator, or "Brave Hunter."

WIP thread link.

Now, I'll be honest and say it's not done to the level I want it done at, but that simply is because I don't have the skill or capability to do what I want. In time I'm sure I'll get to that point, but for now I declare it complete!

Enjoy :)

Im not very fond of that colour scheme, BUT there are some subtleties in your work that gave me second thoughts about light blue and yellow on Warhounds...

Such large models are never really finished, a myriad of details to add, but you already made great work on it! Congratulations on whats IMHO the most ambitious LPC I saw completed this year!

Very nice! At first, only the on image of the shin guard loaded for me, so I was thinking you had come up with some new form of Warhound. But then the rest loaded, and I became in awe.

As for Janus, we don't know. Since he's a psyker he can't be Loken nor Garro but he's probably one of gents hired by Garro.


well, considering that loken has been crushed by a titan/falling building, survived a virus bomb,, survived a duel with abby, punked lucius the eternal, took a world eater in cc, pwned the 2 marines the WE was with, and then came back to his sanity with a single sentence... i believe that loken will manifest whatever abilites the BL decides to give him.

maybe he is a latent psyker that abilities were brought out by the trauma he suffered in being so awesome. <_<

I really love the effect on the plasma blastgun. It really looks like the energy is oscillating down the coils, really love it!

Thanks everyone!

To be fair, it's actually grey and yellow for the color scheme, but I can see how it could look differently. I do plan on some pimped-out weathering, and I just found out that IA Model Masterclass 2 has a feature on a titan, so I'll be excited to get that in the mail and put tips to use. The first book already gave me tons of tips already; the more the merrier.

Love this pic....the angle makes it look "real", if you see what I mean. A daunting sight for anyone on the other side! ^_^

I must admit, I thought it was blue as well, but I do like the colours regardless ^_^

Yellow is a bugger to paint well, and I prefer the more "muted" yellow, than the "Oh My God! My Retinas!" shade that I've seen on Marine Armour, much less on a Titan.

Great work on this. I doubt I'd have worked out how to assemble the feet in a month to be honest! ^_^

Once, a Novice Cantus came to me, troubled and uncertain. A slip of a girl, only a few strides down the eternal path leading her to the Golden Throne. She asked me a question. She asked me how we can ever truly understand what faith is. I told her that there is no coin to measure what we feel in our hearts. There are no scales upon which we might weigh the faith of one woman against another. There is only duty and blood. There are only deeds and words. There is only the service to the God-Emperor, and the price that demands from each Sister can only be known by Him. But know that whatever fears must be faced, whatever hardships endured, that price is forever worth its full cost.

Daughter of the Emperor (later Imperial Saint Katherine)

Be proud. Your warhound rocks like Meatloaf.
Whether the ork crossed the road or the road simply passed under the ork depends entirely on your perspective.

Thank you, thank you gentle folks.

Yellow is a bugger to paint well, and I prefer the more "muted" yellow, than the "Oh My God! My Retinas!" shade that I've seen on Marine Armour, much less on a Titan.

Agreed. The fairly neon green titan in the Apocalypse book is quite a turn off. When I was painting this yellow (Iyanden Darksun and Bleached Bone, btw), I actually thought it looked a bit too brown when I was going onto the parts that were primed in white, though it looked alright on the grey primed parts. In the end it's yellow enough for me.

i don't know why but i have the urge to fine my copy of mechwarrior 4 for some unknown reason

I get the urge to pop in Mechassault to my xbox (s'all I have ;)) and stomp around in a Mad Cat.

The War Griffons has quickly become my favorite legion too, being one of the most decorated and now homeless. Makes for a neat back story, which I'm all about.

Since that last picture is so well-liked, I'm going to take more like that. For now though, you'll just have to settle with that one again, but now it looks like it's from the front lines ;) :

For the regular Guardsman you've got Commissars holding guns to their backs. They're faithful in their own way, sometimes mightily so, but they are regular folks who've led regular lives, with the completely understandable desire to continue living that causes them to duck when they get shot at. Sisters are orphans raised in perpetual Sunday school, fanatical to the point that they look at Repentia and feel a twinge of jealousy that those girls will see the Emperor sooner than they will.
