Knight Warden Titan WIP and 100th Post Contest Winnah!


Here he is, covered in rivets and basecoated. I still need to suss out a base for him, plus there's some detailing that remains to be done, but he's basically finished. I think it gets across the whole "pygmy Reaver" look of the epic model from the last post nicely. I was thiiiiiiis close to giving him spindly Punisher cannon arms, but opted for the CCW and battle cannon instead. Given the piece I used for the Apocalypse Launcher (which looks like an enormous Thunderfire gun) a pair of gatlings would've been redundant, design-wise. He'll have to settle for strafing infantry with the heavy bolters on his low-slung head (maybe I should've made them flamers?) and that autocannon on his right arm instead. Here he is next to my still-baseless Warhound: 




Color-wise, Red and brass always looks too Khornate to me me, so I may opt for a different tack with this model. Still, I want him to tie in with the rest of my AdMech forces.


Oh yeah, the contest winner.


Drum roll, please. 


Ghengis Vaughn, for Warden of Sovereignty.


Ghengis, email me your mailing info so's I can mail you the sprue, and thanks to everybody for playing, not to mention being a reader of this blog. Hopefully after this Titan's done, I can sum up the courage (and plasticard) to cleave into that ancient AT-AT in my garage and make a full-sized Reaver out of him. 


Also, I'm clearing out more stuff on eBay. Most of it sci-fi/anime-oriented, though I daresay there's something for everybody. So take a look and fund my miniatures addiction. International shipping is available. 


Next time, we show off some Dark Eldar conversions....

Is that a LED Mirage in the background of those pic? I do like me some Five Star Stories!

Very nice! I'm still waffling about how (or indeed if) I want to make a warden for my own knight household, and I really like the look you've pulled off. Can't wait to see it painted - keep up the great work!

@The Inner Geek: Yes, yes it is a LED Mirage. I got it in Japan 11 years ago. If you're a FSS fan, there's a real treat for you coming up in a future mecha-oriented post ;)

@Mordian: thanks! You should make one to go along with your Knight Paladin. That Anathema tank is almost a little Knight Warden by itself. Man, what a solid little design that thing is.

Woooo! Go Ghengis! If I know him in RL does that make me cool? I think it does. =P

@Lantz: If you know him in RL, tell him to send me his mailing address in a week, otherwise I pick a new winner.

Will do.

@Lantz- never mind; he got back to me, and his sprue is on the way.
