Thoughts on the painting of, and playing with, toy soldiers.

The War Engines of Legio Crassus

Long time no see! I won’t bore you with the tedious details of why I haven’t been blogging much (too much Real Life getting in the way), but although I haven’t posted here in over 10 months, I haven’t been idle: I’ve just finished the titan legion I posted about last June:

The legion consists of four Warhounds, three Reavers, four Warlords and a repainted and refurbished Warmonger (which still needs a bit of attention as one of the Hydra turrets has lost a barrel).

with the exception of the arm weapons on the Warmonger, and the Carapace weapons on the Lucius-pattern Warlord, every single weapon is magnetised, meaning that I can customise the weapons load-out of each titan as I see fit. In addition to a lot of classic metal and plastic titan weapons, I’ve also included some of the weapons from the Defeat in Detail Cybershadows Leviathan models to proxy as various different weapons.

These titans are painted in the colours of Legio Crassus – a titan legion that was loyal to the Warmaster during the Horus Heresy. None of the titans show the corruption of Chaos – but that might change in the future! For now, they are just a Heresy-era traitor legion, and wear the Eye of Horus proudly over their metallic green armour.

  1. What an awesome Legio of different models and marks! Those Reavers with the carapace multilaunch are my absolute favourite from an imagery perspective and reflect a lot of the original artwork. Love the crisp green and white colours – very effective. Well Done indeed!
