yo everyone don't know if I'm allowed to post it here so to mods if I'm wrong please pm me where to post this

anyway
I saw a few titans (a lot of titans) and the ones who shook my brains where the 2 enormous titan's (almost the same size as a 2year old child) now my questions are the following
1 what are they called and what are there data sheets?
2 are they scratch build if so is there a tutorial on how these where made?

final I hope that next years event will be half a million or even more that would be awesome to see can't wait till next year (maybe by then I saved enough money to also enter)

If i am not mistaken you are talking about the 250K apoc game that was played this year.

Those titans are Warlord Class battle Titans.
They cost 2500 points each and they are in the Official Warhammer 40k Apocalypse Codex.

Their is 1 bigger Titan then the Warlord which no one brought to the apoc game.
The Emperor Class Battle Titan
Its rules can be found on the Gamesworkshop web page

They where built by Randolf (sorry if i spelled it wrong) on the forms. I believe they are both scratch build and I also believe he made his own templates.

Hmmmm....seems I am going to have to create some kind of Tutorial so everyone can see how they were built.

But yes, they are scratch built - The templates can be found on Dakka Dakka: http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/30/206339.page

The weapons don't follow any templates - I was trying to make the weapons look big, nasty, modular and as close to the original Epic models as possible. Everything is magnetized - including the mid body so that the titans can be broken down and stored/transported more easily.

The hardest part was finding futuristic looking plastic models that could be cut up and used to encrust the titans. I ended up using two Base Stars (Battlestar Galactica), One Star Destroyer model (Star wars), The Millennium Falcon, and several Tanks. I also used two Platformer kits and some cities of death bits to keep the gothic/grim dark feeling. As others have pointed out - I tried to avoid that boxy look by adding textured plastic on top of the foamcore.

The painting scheme is called

375th Death Korp of Krieg Plasma Storm Pattern


I'll work on posting pics of the Warlords in this forum so they can be seen in greater detail. Watch for updates:
