Hi all,

thought you might be interested in seeing some pics of the Titans in Bryan Ansell's collection:

http://eldritchepistles.blogspot.co.uk/ ... ammer.html

I have the privilege and pleasure of documenting figures in Bryan's collection. He has lots of Epic figures, including some unreleased Mk0 Titans which I'll be blogging about soon.

Feel free to share the link with your Epic friends :)

cheers
Steve

yeah, me too; many of those old miniatures really look better to my eyes, and more .. free, in a way, than all the slick stuff that are pretty much just painted by numbers ..

It's been ages since I've seen Titans with purity seals! Great stuff!

Hi!

I own a metal MK0 warlord (one of those used for the original AT rulebook photos)., and I can say its a shame they never sold those. They are wonderful models. :)

Yes, it is a shame GW never sold any of them. As much as I like the MK I, I like the MK 0 a lot more.

This sure takes me back. I miss the gorgeous White Dwarf Epic content from that era. So inspiring.

Thanks for your kind words guys. As part of my research for this topic I do spend a lot of time looking at back issues of White Dwarf and I have to agree it's great looking at these old dioramas. The one above with the false perspective is particularly nice.
