Brought to Bay

Another quickie today and something else from the "archives" or rather stuff I never got round to photographing and forgot to post...

Before all this Horus Heresy stuff got me interested, I had visions of recreating another campaign involving Marine against Brother Marine - the Badab War. Some of you may remember the Tactical and Land Raider Companies of the Executioner Chapter that I posted some time ago - which reminds me that I never posted pics of the Thunderhawk Gunships I painted up in Executioner livery either!

Well as part of that (abortive - for now) project, I painted up my lone (at the time) Warlord Titan as one of the fighting machines of the Legio Crucius - the only Titan Legion to take part in the war as far as I could ascertain.

We'll have to see whether I ever get round to revisiting the Badab War - it is a setting that I found really interesting. Civil War without necessarily having anything much to do with the usual insinuations of Chaos.

I'm not sure what part the Legio Crucius took in the Horus Heresy, but here we see a Warlord rounding on its pursuers - four Warhounds of the Deaths Heads Legion! I can't take any credit for painting the Warhounds other than a quick ink wash over the existing paint job they came with.


Two will be getting resprays at some point so that I can even out the Titan forces across the three Loyalist and three Traitor Legions I'm planning on painting up for the Adeptus Titanicus game I'm planning for BOYL 2016.


You might notice the Vulcan Megabolter, fetching in white and gold trim, that the Warlord is sporting - I was a short of one Titan weapon so it got bolted on despite the fact that this weapon is more often seen on Reavers and Warhounds.

  2. Isn't that an autocannon on the warlords right arm?

    1. Vulcan Megabolter - usually seen on Warhounds and Reavers but I was short of a weapon at the time!
