Nova Guard Titan Legion, 3k pt engine list.

Warlord - TCCW, 2 plasma cannons, melta cannon (close-up brawling)
Warlord - 2 ARLs, 2 volcano cannons (medium-range fire support, engine killer)
Reaver - landing pad, 2 quake cannons (artillery)
Warhound - 2 inferno gun (crowd control)
Warhound - TLD, plasma blastgun (tank hunter)

All I could find out about the Nova Guard, after deciding I liked the name, was that they were "green with a red sunburst logo". So I opted for a Rising Sun-style emblem on various carapace and leg plates. The only one that's actually seen action so far is one of the Warhounds, supporting my Crimson Fists...

@netepic - ask and you shall receive!

@madd0ct0r - the lines are hand painted, slowly, with a small brush :) I think I pencilled in the lines first on the first Warhound but then decided I didn't need to. I had to go back and correct a lot of wobbles along the edges, and then correct the corrections etc, so it took a while but was worth it I think.

Thanks for the kind comments :) the lower weapons on the Warlords and all the Reaver's weapons are magnetised. The others were glued on when I acquired the Titans and didn't want to start hacking bits off...

very nice :) reminds me, i really should finish painting my own legion, so far it stands at:
1 imperator
2 warlords
5 reavers
4 warhounds
i still have 3 of the reavers left to paint up. not sure how many points it comes to though.
