Ok here are some more pictures.
This is my most painted model. He's had a wash and some blending on his armour, but needs heraldry, transfers and weathering done to him still.
I've made a couple of cradles for gatling guns to fit onto his shoulders. I've just sprayed these and they have come out ok, so I should be able to post painted images soon.
These were made from plasticard, green stuff, some plastic tube to make the collar part and some rod for the pistons. Quite pleased with how they've come out.
At first I made the gun cradles with little turrets. I decided to remove these and build a simpler collar like the missile launchers and laser blasters have. I originally wanted to represent the 90 degree arc that the gatlings have on their card, but apparently that's a typo. And the turrets made the guns stand up a bit too high as well.
My second warlord is meant to be charging forward. I spent a bit of time trying to figure out a pose for a running warlord because I thought it would be easier to get wrong than right. Nevertheless they are described as running in Titandeath, and I thought it would be cool. I looked for images of big guys running and the kinds of postures they get into, and this is my attempt. I think it's come out ok. So far he just has his basecoat done.
I've started on my third warlord of the Myrmidon maniple. He's going to be a fire support titan with missiles, volcano and quake cannon. So I need to make a quake cannon somehow! And the melee guy wants a gatling arm too while I'm at it. I'll let you know how I get on.
And finally here's a shot of my first game. My Legio Cultura took on a renegade legio that I haven't managed to identify. I won the game, with a warhound managing to get vital cargo across the board. I lost my other warhound to having its face punched and shot in by the enemy reaver. Both enemy warlords died in their damage recovery phases, having sent their reactors critical and had a lot of damage done to their bodies.
The terrain was pretty dense and the warhounds did great work. I thought the volcano cannon warlords my opponent fielded were pretty awful by comparison. I had a warhound that was on its last legs but they just couldn't put it down, until it ran out of places to run and the reaver catch up to it. All four warlords struggled to get clear shots, and therefore found their firepower pretty ineffective. Killing titans seems to require targeted shots, which is difficult to do when everything is in cover and impossible with blast weapons. Not a problem for the reaver's fist though.
My melee warlord got shot up but was still active when the game ended - albeit with a comrpomised body and a damaged fist. We just had my two warlords vs one damaged enemy reaver titan at the end. One of my warhounds was dead and the other had run through with the cargo.
Great fun. Hopefully more games to come soon.
