Adeptus Titanicus II?

But is it 6mm scale as its hard to tell in that picture, it looks a bit bigger to me.

Everything gets scale creep. I mean you can see on this forum that the kit bashing people do to make titans usually ends up with them towering over the battlefield more like in the fluff and art than in the 80s / 90s games.

Maybe if we all email FW and harass them into releasing the Epic scale print? The print is after all the most expensive stage of the process.

Except that Epic isn't really 6mm... more like 8mm

Oh man this is even better - you can buy just the head! This is like those people who buy a ferrari model and have it on their desk as a kind of empty material aspiration.

I have to say I'm less impressed by this titan the more I see all three together. I like the overall outline but comparative to the clean lines and fitted armor of the warhound and reaver, the warlord just seems to be a haphazard collection of awkwardly placed plates and details.

Take, for instance, the fit of the armor around the toes. On the Reaver, this area fits together with the top of the toe and the cut out of the armor creating a sharp corner. On the warlord, the armor seems overly spaced from the shin and leaves a huge gap from the top of the toe armor to the top of the opening. That opening is also round which is at odds with the shape of the toe armor.

I'm also a bit confused at why the knee armor needs to have the extra beveling on the bottom that awkwardly breaks the shape and the fit within the top of the shin armor.

There are a few other details I find distracting on here like the twin shields and the awkwardly placed armor over the arm joints. I think that some of the chest plates could also be merged to form a bit more cohesive shape.

For me it's the width/size shoulder weapons/carapace which I don't like - seems even more top heavy than the old Beatle backs, which at 6mm in '88 looked great, but now at 28mm just makes no sense. The head is good but much like a knight (and the alt one is horrible !) Obviously these are the only reasons I haven't bought one...
