It's taken me a while but I've finally got my the first of my 11 AT titans ready to paint :) I'm a little iffy about the weapon fit (and it's glued not magnetised so I'm stuck with it) but I'm hoping 12 barrage points at 60cm (4BP each in the Epic-UK list but no disrupt) will be useful sometimes. It'll put 3 blast markers on anything it hits, so auto-breaking 3DC units.

Getting the wires right was a pain and I had to sacrifice two power fists for the wires and cut and reposition them midway before gluing them to the arm launchers.

I'll probably do a twin missile launcher Warhound and possibly even a 4 missile launcher Warlord to go with it.

Cool and scary at the same time.

That's A LOT of barrage. Would love to see a batrep from when you use it!

Do these look the part for a Carapace Multilaser upgrade?

Downside would be I only ever have enough of these OOP parts to model one Reaver with them but I find the upgrade a bit pricey for the 4 x 30cm AA6+ it gives (I prefer the free option to have a hydra turret as the titan’s carapace weapon instead) so maybe one would be enough?

I've made Reaver some doggie friends. Only 2 more titans to go till I hit the 3k army I plan :)

The old forumware missile launchers are perfect to represent smaller / less powerful Warhound missile launchers. I feel it's probably the weakest of the weapons choices for a Warhound but I thought I'd go for one of each for variety.

Those Warhounds really go together nicely. Did you magnetize weapons at all?

On the Multilasers - I think they look a little large, considering the old beetleback carapace dome I'd probably go for something more subtle. The Warlord kit has a couple carapace weapons included, have you looked at how they are sized for an idea?

No magnetising for the Warhounds, nor the artillery Reaver. I’ll be magnetising shoulder pads and weapons on the other titans though. I want to add the weapon cables as well which complicates things. I think I’ll probably glue the upper arm pieces in place and magnetise these to the weapons itself, but have a few weapons + cables built to fit to the pose of a specific titan rather than the weapons being able to be used on any titan.

I’ve decided I quite like the shoulder turrets and am going to use them. They look similar to the AA weapons on the new Warbringer Nemesis titan.

I was meant to building a fifth Warhound and a Warlord to get a playable army but I got sidetracked and built another Reaver instead. Weapons just blu-tacked for the moment and I’ve misplaced one of the AA turrets. I’m iffy about the look of the dedicated AA weapon system... might keep searching for alternate options.

Alltogether they are looking really cool but I think there's a couple of leg poses, two of the Warhounds, and one of the Reaver titans, that look a bit comical. Sorry to be critical, especially as I can appreciate that you are attempting to make the poses dynamic. The Reaver looks like he's about to kick someone's door in, and the Warhounds have legs trailing beind them that are nearly parellel to the ground. They look very unrealistic to me, especially when you consider the size and mass of titans. They would be pretty slow and lumbering beasts.

Not trying to be an A-hole here, just giving some (likely unwanted) constructive criticism.
