Default Blackadder's FW Chaos Warhound Build

I debated whether to append this to the Lucius scratchbuilt Warhound thread or start a new thread. There will be a side by side comparison of Lucie my scratchbuilt to the various components of an actual Forge World titan which should prove interesting and hopefully I will not be tearing out too much hair over grievous discrepancies.

I opted for the Chaos version because considering FW's propensity for less than perfect castings I figured this would be so much less noticeable on something that is supposed to be outrageously deformed.

That and I just think the Chaos version is the more interesting of the Mars Pattern.

I'll be posting images as soon as I get over the initial excitement of ownership of a real FW Warhound.

Below is the initial opening of the shipment carton with the top sheet of bubble wrap removed. I suppose FW tested the durability of the various pieces of brittle resin and arrived at the optimum packaging and shipping procedure that all components survive the ministrations of the erstwhile USPS package handlers.

To the untrained eye the contents look like they were unceremoniously just dumped into the box.


Unpacking the container revealed the only thing reasonably protected was the instructions and certificate of ownership.

You are working on this and a scratch build warlord!! You are a glutton for punishment, have you thought of a paint scheme for it? I'm looking forward to seeing this complete.

Your input would not be amiss though............

imho it should complement but not match your main colour scheme, for example my blood angels (one day maybe) will have a Blue and Red Titan

The first order of business and to address something I am dying to know is how well did my best guesstimate of the size and shape of the weapons compare to a FW original? I had to use my best estimate in relative size for virtually all aspects of my scratchbuilt Wolf Warhound having never seen one in the flesh ..er ah resin that is and it has always been a source of consternation how Lucie would measure up to the real Mcoy.

I know even from the pictures later acquired on the web that Lucie has more robust legs in cross-section than the regulation titan and that changes I made to the carapace and hull give her a more massive appearance but that was intentional. The major concern was the weapons, head, waist and feet.

Well for the weapons at least........... aside from the caliber of the megabolter its a pretty good match

I am very please that there is no significant discrepancy, whew!

An addenda to the last post, there is significant difference with my turbo laser compared to the FW original. It appears my laser's caliber is less than and (this really gets me) my infrared sight is longer?

Referring to the bottom view I had no image to go by so my detail is sparse compared to the real McCoy. But I think I can live with it.

More comparisons to follow even if they reveal further discrepancies.
