Hello people.

Let me introduce myself a bit: Julien, 37 years old, French (may be a monkey but I won't surrender), in love with GW since 1993. To be CLEAR, I'm more of a builder and a painter than a player (although I had my first game last week end and I particularly enjoyed it)

My army now:
I always wanted to build myself a Titan Legion. Ever since I was a boy looking enviousl and droolling et the pics on White Dwarf. Now I'm old(er), and I was recently reacquainted with the Epic size, and I tought " Gosh I have tens of Titans sleeping in my attic, may be it would be a good idea to dust them off and actually make something interesting of them.
First was the choice of the Legion, Warprunners? No way José, everybody does this legion now, most far better than I could ever paint. So I went for my favorite Legion (by name and fluff): the Legio Metalica.

So I gathered evrything I had and began building and . Obviuosly this is all gonna be Old School figures (that's all I have and these are the figures I favour most) but I'll try a more "modern" paintscheme.... ( How trustfull am I...)

The back on these pics is appaling I know. It'll change next time.


The army as is (for now)

Image

None is, yet, completely finished, I still have lots of Warlords (7), Reavers (3), Warhounds (2) and even another Imperator to finish building/converting.

Warlord Titan « Ira Sancta » ( Saint Anger)

Image

The "Custodes" Head to go with is coming.

Reaver Titan « Quareto Perdero » (Seek and Destroy)

Image
The other Reaver, « Pugna » (Battery) is currently being stripped..

Warhound Titans “Mors Repens” ( Creeping Death) and “ Denique Paleas” (Shortest Straw)

Image

Paladins Knights of House Raven

Image
Image

Imperator Titan « Iustitia Omnibus »( [Justice for All[)

Image
Image
Image
Image

Clearly inspired (stolen?) from this >figure< : . The paintscheme will clearly be different

That's it for now
My deepest thanks and respect to those who'd read all of this till the end.
Every commentary, question, rockthrowing is appreciated
Come on!

Awesome work so far Julian! Your painting is excellent. I love the battle damage that you are putting on there.
Also I love the names! Keep up the great work!

I really like what you've done so far. The names are a nice touch.

Thank you all for your kind words.
And yes as you've all spotted All of my Titans will have names coming from Metallica songs ( the Latin Translation is sometimes difficult so I tried to be truthfull the the spirit of the song at least.

So you know that the legio is more advanced ;D

Then I'm not gonna waste more time and show what took me two weeks right now.


Image

Some Thunderbolts. I was tempted at the beginning to paint them like F14 Tomcat Jolly Rogers But I found some red would work better, ties them to the army and give them a little Star Wars look (which is always a good thing).


Image

The 3000pts FERC army

Still a mega blaster Vulcan is missing on "Pugna" and some objective markers.



Image

And everything I built.

As you can see Old School ( The Mk3 Warlord won't be used in this army.

I love the names you've given to the Titans!

By the way, what about sharing some more pics huh, I've noticed you've had a lot more cool shots over at the French forum.

All right all right!
I have 6 months of work to catch up. I thought flooding with pics was too much.

So update

Image
Image

Warhound "Denique Paleas"
Almost finished, some marking, purity seals et of course banners to add.

Now, I decided to go with cinematic effects on the whole army, like the one on the Thunderbolt.

Image

Reaver "Quareto Perdero"
Also almost finished, some marking, purity seals et of course banners to add.

Image
Image

Reaver "Pugna"
Lots of work remaining on this one.

Image
Image
Image

Warlord "Ira Sancta"

On this one... The missiles are kinda weird I Know. ( I was recently told it looked like a Chaos Titan with tentacles from afar) That's why they're not glued


the 3000 pts army

Image

the 6000+ army

Image

And there's still much to bluid!

As usual comment, critics, tomato throw.... welcome!
