Warhound Scout Titan
« on: December 12, 2018, 10:01:02 PM »
(sorry if you came here hoping to see some of the new small scale Adeptus Titanicus Warhound Scout titans from Games Workshop, this ain't that...)



Tigris Viridi - Warhound Scout Titan



The model is an old Armorcast Warhound titan produced under license in the '90s - it was modelled after the original "epic scale" model.



This is actually my SECOND one - Tigris Viridi joins it's partner Pardus Purpura in the Eritque Arcus Maniple of Legio Amare Feles.



Here they are with some tanks and infantry - for scale - no sane infantry or tankers would want to operate THIS CLOSE to a Titan - even a smaller, nimbler one like a Warhound. I mean, beyond the possibility of getting trod upon by it, anything that's actually shooting at it is going to be laying down a world of hurt to anything that happens to be in the immediate vicinity!

There are more pics on my blog:

Wow - that's a shock of colour (but the lighter colour choice was the right one to make) - but it works. Reminds me of those Astral Tigers Space Marine. There was this blog (late 90s/early 2000s) where a guy had created a Space Marine chapter based on Indian mythology.

Thanks!

I'd not heard of the Astral Tigers - I'll have to do some googling- that sounds cool!

Incredible work! I love the vibrant colours and the carapace patterning is a treat

Oh wow. That is some old scholey goodness right there. I sold of my warhound titan years ago. Because it would never get painted otherwise. But seeing yours painted up I sort of regret it..

I still have mine sitting in storage, sporting a red and black base coat from the previous owner. I remember when you posted your first one; I got so excited that I  unboxed it, just so I could stare at it on my painting desk. And then I even bought it a replacement weapon for one of the arms (a Plasma Cannon to replace the Mega Melta).

It should be no surprise that it eventually ended up being boxed again though. I suppose I find the prospect of painting such a colossal model too daunting to actually go through with it. Just like I admit being somewhat intimidated by the stellar studio paint jobs of my (bare metal) Confrontation miniatures... ::)

But your 'Hounds are fantastic! The bright, exaggerated paint jobs go very well with the cartoony look of the models (I'm not calling them miniatures! lol ), and they make for an eye catching and intimidating presence on the tabletop.

Excellent job(s)!

And you know they really should be flanking a Reaver of course... :D
Miniatures you say? Well I too, like to live dangerously...

I came here not expecting this I must say, but glad I did.
The colours are VERY striking and really like the pair, Well done  :)

I must admit too, when I first saw them I thought they were the epic scale until you mentioned them being armour cast. I never knew they did a full scale version in this style. But happy to see they did. Although I am a big fan of the new version myself.

Thank you all!

I suppose I find the prospect of painting such a colossal model too daunting to actually go through with it.

It was actually surprisingly easy to paint - sure there is a LOT of surface area to cover (which might have been easier with an airbrush - or a spray can1?) but the models are very light on details - compared to newer models from GW!


And you know they really should be flanking a Reaver of course... :D

Ummmm... cough! cough!



I'm starting to wonder if maybe I have a bit of a problem...

I've never been a huge fan of these titans... but you have done a quality job of painting the pair of them... the bright colours certainly make them noticeable :) .

Are they Imperial or traitor? They have a certain Tzeentch look about them...  :o ;)

Thanks!

I meant for them to be Imperial (as I mostly play Imperial Guard). But a small part of the reason I painted them the way I did was to do double duty as traitor titans (I was thinking Slaanesh, initially - with the pink one - but, as you say, they could easily pass for Tzeentch titans...)

The leopard print pink certainly gives off a Slaaneshi vibe haha  lol
In the best way possible.
