Here's Corvus Assault Head, from EPICOLLECTOR:

And a selection of oldies from this forum:

And a carapace landing pad from ebay:

None of these are realistically findable, so scratchbuilding is probably the way forward...

I think you can find shots of the originals over on Stuff of legends. Corvus pods came in one for arms a nod one for the head. The CLP had a square and round version similar in look to a parapet of a medieval castle. The cml was a plug that fit into the carapace slot on the beetle backs and looked a bit like a Gatling gun but more up like a AA gun.

What do people think of using the Guild Gaia Heavy Transport Squadron as Minoris with CAV?

I'm thinking of converting it to drop the heavy mortar on top, along the lines of this conversion.

It could work, but I think it might be a tad small. Bit to guard for my taste too :)

For Secutors what do you guys think of a combination of the Cyber Shadow Heavy Cyborgs and Cyber Shadow Specialist Characters? Basically the two that look like either MM or Dual Autocannons flanking one of the Techpriest looking leaders?

I think the heavy cyborgs would work all right on their own, but they are closer to the praetorian combat servitors than secutors. Secutors would be more in line with a techpriest in heavy armor that has weapons added on.

Is my search-fu poor, or does Shapeways not have much in the way of Titan weapon proxies? I thought it'd be my best chance of finding non-true-scale weapons.

Having missed the pre-Epic 40,000 days, I have a few questions about how to model a few more things...

What in the world does a Corvus Assault Pod look like? Same goes for the Carapace Landing Pad, and all the other weapons that aren't included in still-available titan kits. Would Carapace Multi-Lasers be visible? Thanks!


See my answer to that issue. CAP I don't have modelled.

http://s1311.photobucket.com/user/9Dan9 ... t=9&page=1

The CLP is a 25 mm Base from gw cuted the edge to get a flat surface. Then placed a helicopter from

http://www.revell.de/produkte/modellbau ... 05128.html on it. The CML visible on de Close Combat Reaver are from the same modell. This are the 5inch 38 turrets. I've drilled a 2mm hole in it to magnetize it.

I used the Heavy cyborgs as praetorians, and some of the command/tech priest figures as Secutors. Unfortunately I didn't have enough so had to "fluff" em out with some robot things as well.
