Kastelan Robots and Warlord Titan

I finished the paintjob on my first Kastelan today.
It still needs markings and insignia but the actual paintscheme is done.

For bonus points, on saturday I was able to finally get around to painting my Titan Princeps in honor of the announcement of the new Warlord Titans

Enjoy the pictures!

After a lot of hopping up and down in joy over the Warlord’s debut at Warhammer World this weekend (they had FOUR of them in the displays!) I’ve made the dubiously sane decision to buy one.

The price-point is estimated at £1200. easily twice as much as the Reaver. I’m hoping that includes the weapon systems, because Reaver weapons run at about £50 each and spending another £200 on top of the base cost would be pushing it.

I’ve already preordered Horus Heresy Book 5 (which contains the rule-set for the Warlord)

I estimate that constructing and painting the Warlord will take me about five months. maybe less if I’m really on the ball. I’m going to be taking everything I’ve learned building Meliora Bellator and applying it to this project.
We’re talking heavy use of pinning and bolts. countersinking magnets into the shoulders. stuff like that.
My reaver is adaptable, I can swap out any of the weapons, however the power fist is a chore to deal with, requiring power tools to remove it safely.

At any rate, spreading the £1200 price-tag over five months averages out at £8 a day. I think I get good value for money! And the biggest and baddest war machine anyone can bring to bear in Manchester’s gaming community, full stop. So there’s that too!

For bonus points, my house-mate has been infected by the same madness as me and has also pledged to buy a warlord. So we’ll be sharing resources and tools. as well as experiences in the process.

After news got around at my local store, I’ve already received a preemptive Challenge from store staff for a 10k point battle in which both warlords face down an entire armoured company of Guard.
I fancy my chances…
