|Let's get stompy! A "Nemesis Warbringer" class titan for Legio Mortis. This is a plastic model from GW's "Adeptus Titanicus" game.|
|Lots of detail on the rear, as always, including the pseudo-industrial components holding whatever mysterious bits that power this beast.|
On a quick glance, it certainly appears to live up to its name, with the awkward posture and very melodramatic carapace mounting a main battery. One assumes the "Peacebringer" variant of the design did not make it off of the drawing board...
|Rough size comparison photo...|
|Another comparison photo...bigger than a Warhound (front) and Reaver (back, right).|
|Standard Reaver-sized laser battery on the right arm...the other carries a volcano cannon (again, Reaver-sized).|
The kit itself only comes with a quake cannon for the top carapace...a conversion of some sort for a volcano cannon is possible, but I expect at some point GW might issue a separate volcano cannon just for this model, either as an extra plastic sprue or just via Forge World.
For the arms, the kit comes with a volcano cannon and a laser blaster. These look (and perform) just like the versions mounted on the Reavers in your collection, with a crucial difference - the design of the kit allows for the use of magnets, which is nice to see, and if you are a smart builder like Dallas and have already magnetized a Reaver kit or two, you will be able to swap some of your other Reaver weapons onto this model with ease.
You will also see there are secondary weapon mounts on the carapace that look like heavy AA weapons...I don't think they play much of an immediate role in the current game, but I suppose these might render this machine into a "flak titan" should they ever allow for flyers or - even better - just re-release the rules for "Epic".
|WIP photo - the monster comes together in stages...start with the basics on the legs...|
|Torso is then added & painted...the main and secondary batteries are painted separately...|
|It's busy up there...|
|Close up of the main and secondary batteries on the carapace.|
All in all this is titan chassis certainly has a different flavour to the other more traditional ones. It looks and feels more like a sort of glamour ride, intended to have some battlefield use, but mostly as a traveling "engine-war tourism" platform, or a mobile combat base for the commanders of a Titan Legion. I'm sure the view from up on that carapace is to die for...

Thanks for reading everyone - hope you are safe and well. Cheers.
