Too bad forgeworld took (what should have been) this perfectly great epic titan sculpt and corrupted it for the 28mm game.

That's looks nothing like a Baneblade...

Brilliant model! I would dearly love to convert one for use as a Banelord in my World Eaters.

With this, Warmachine's Colossals and Tom's Large Behemoth we're going to be spoiled for large walkers this year.

Can't stand it as a Decimator

Will have to wait until someone has got hold of one and can pose it alongside an Epic Warlord titan. But this might make an awesome (albeit expensive) Chaos Warlord.

If you're collecting truescale models I think it would fit the bill as a Banelord pretty well (if you add some carapace weapons and replace the arm weapons)

If your collection includes regular scale titans it might make an interesting starting point for an Emperor class titan. The bulkiness is fairly close. Perhaps not an Imperator, but there's several class Emperor titans mentioned...


That said, FW (And GW in general) is really running low on original ideas these days. Heck... Even the unit description would fit most Chaos machines out there... :p

Once again, the G/W-F/W crew go "Orwellian" and change the fluff to suit them ... However it is sort of a cool looking model ... should have called it something else ...

It's a 60mm base, so to scale with the Warlord...

Medium, Small and Massive might even make a 2012 release too.

I can't decide if it will work as a banelord or not – im not so sure about the dog-leged legs 'warhound style' for larger titans and the shoulders are a bit too much. Might be easier to just re-style a warlord in the direction of the decimator, rather than make the decimator into a warlord.

Thanks Curis- that thing is certainly big in Epic scale!

I know some have reservations about it as a Chaos Titan. However it is the best looking Chaos Titan I have yet seen with the excpetion of Warmaster Nice's corrupted Impertaor and someone who used Warmachine Cryx models as a base.

The shoulders look to have enough flat area to mount some carapace weapons. I won't be able to afford to buy one for a long while but otherwise would be adding one to my Epic collection.

Cheers

James

Price is not bad compared to thew current new rrp of a metal warlord. Very tempting.

I've with you on the shoulders Apoc. It might be possible to move the arms in to the next round mount and remove the last bit of shoulder plating on the edges. Not sure about reducing the height of them is an easy option though.

Could just lump that style shoulders onto a Mk2 or Mk3 chassi, then properly chaos up the other plates. I can't draw but, warlord proportions with decimator style shoulder plates might be something like this?

Or, just use a decimator but remove the forward stoop on torso, bring shoulders in a bit, and cut out the middle section of legs (would hardly affect height as that leg section is more or less horizontal). wonder if you could use FW dreadnaught arms on it at all? WE chain fist would be great on a banelord

Chaos or at least Darren Parwood (the sculptor) seem to be big transformers fans judging by this, in particular the right weapon, and the brass scorpion
