Adeptus Titanicus: Legio Mortis Warlord Titan

Following on the heels of my previous Adeptus Titanicus post, I've managed to complete the second Warlord titan from my boxed set. This fella is in the colours of Legio Mortis. 

In 30/40K lore, Legio Mortis is one of the oldest titan legions in existence, renown for being insufferably haughty and elitist. With this being the case, I thought I'd give their classic baroque black-red-and-gold armour the high gloss treatment, with very little weathering. In my mind's eye, I see these alpha-level god engines having flocks of cherubim servitors flitting around, continually buffing and waxing the armour to a blinding sheen. :)

Nonetheless, I still wanted to make sure the model conveyed the sense that it was a brutal war machine. With this in mind, I chopped up some extra bits from a Civitas terrain sprue to create the wreckage of a administratum building that's in the midst of being pounded into dust by the Warlord. Also, to help place the scene within a sense of scale, I positioned a small group of tech-thralls and their tech-priest who are bravely (mindlessly?) moving amidst the titans legs (probably busy registering voters for Horus).

While I've been busy building titans, I'm also trying to add some more Epic scale terrain for them to stomp around in. Here are a trio of buildings, two from the 3D printer, while the one on the right is from the Civitas Imperialis plastic set.

Hopefully I'll have a few more structures to show soon, along with a few Knights and a new Reaver medium titan. 

Thanks for dropping by and have a great week everybody!
