Inspired by the great Blackadder (see here for one of the best build logs on the internet), I have been spending a week or two drawing up my own vision of the Imperator-class Titan.

 

Obviously this is a great deal easier to do in the 3d memory of a computer than physically in real life, however nonetheless I present to you all the "Pillar of Terra's Wrath"...

In doing this modelling work, I have attempted to match fluff with appearance.  the Imperator is, as depicted here, a little under 70 m tall, from feet to top of the central tower (ignoring the dome on top).  The converts to slightly over 227 feet tall, compared to the 32.76 m / 107' 6" of the Mars pattern Warlord.  At 40k scale then, the Imperator would be approx. 1.32 m / 4' 4", whereas the Forge World warlord stands approx. 22.5" tall.  This makes sense to me, as if the Imperator can mount primary Warlord weapons en masse on it's carapace there surely must be a significant size difference.

 

In some images there is a Land Raider for scale... so the Imperator isn't as big as one might first image!

Update:

 

After a TOTAL rebuild of the 3D model, i present the following for comment in my gallery.

 

 

Meet "The Scion of Dying Light".

 

The Scion Of Dying Light

 

Now, as we all know, GW has a scale problem with titans.... something i have attempted to rectify.  The small red blob you may be able to see against the carapace is 1No. 9ft tall Primaris-style Astartes... This, reference combined with a "typical" 6ft human and rough dimensions for the tertiary and point defence weapons leads to from feet to top of the highest spires, The Scion being a little over 207 metres tall (a fraction under 680 feet for our US brothers and sisters).  This seems to match better with the imagery on the covers of the latest BL books.  By this scaling and that reference, I suspect a Warlord would be about 92 m / 301 feet tall, which would work for the scale of the Warlord weapons mounted on the carapace.  A Warmaster would thus be roughly 122 m / 400 feet tall
