Hello TC Community!

Since reading the oh-so-awesome V3.18 Adeptus Mechanicus army list created by the wonderful EA development team, I've decided that I have to make a Warmonger Battle Titan.

So I've got a REAL dilemma. I have one precious Emperator Class Epic Titan still left on the sprue. Any suggestions as to what to use for the Doomstrike missle launcher, Vengeance Cannon and the Hydra Autocannons? I'm really being lazy right now thinking about this, but I'd love to hear some suggestions from all you "Mad Skillz" converters out there.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! :D

Well dropping by Forgeworld to buy some Hydras would be a good start! :D

After that, I think 40k scale missiles might be good for the missile rack, and 2x 40k scale Lascannons strapped together should make a good Vengance cannon.

Just to blow my own trumpet, here is the complete log of how I built mine. Scroll to the bottom and work your way up.

Joining in on the brass ensemble, here's a few pics of mine.
I think this is the third incarnation of the model as I have constantly upgraded it over the past 7 years. Still not overly happy with the vengeance cannon I'm afraid.

E&Cs suggestions sound very good. For the missiles, pretty much anything will do. You could scavenge some old aircraft model kit too (This is what I did for example)

If you don't like cutting up your Imperator I think you could keep the parts interchangable if you don't glue on the towers, arms, center bastion cannon and the sensorium dome. Your Warmonger weapons could then be attached either with blue tac or magnetized. It takes a bit more work, but at least you have the choice between fielding another Imperator or a Warmonger.

Jodrell and Warmaster Nice...I HUMBLY bow before you. :o

Those are some truly amazing conversions there. I can only hope my effort is half of what your awesome engines of destruction look like. That was a great read Jodrell with your blog. That's gonna help for sure. I'm leaning the way of magnetizing the Titan, but I'm not sure since I already own 2 Imperator versions. A Warmonger would be a welcome permanent addition to the ranks of Legio Centurio (my titan legion). As for Mr. Chaos, it didn't even register that the Forge World Hydras would be perfect until you mentioned it. So thank you for the info and just to let you know, I ordered some several days ago.

Now to acquire some missiles and a big ass cannon...Oh and by the way Warmaster Nice, that cannon looks sweet to me.

Ya, that's an awesome conversion. I like how you've moved away from the walking castle look of the Imp, and the bits of orc debris on the base.

...is that spent missile an imperial 'broken arrow' incident? (what incantation does the mechanicus have for 'oops - we lost a support missile'?) :D
