Seems as though GW will have rules for a Warlord titan in the new Apocalypse codex. Does anyone have the size/scale of that thing?

I have an Armorcast Warhound titan. I want to scratch build a Warlord Titan to scale with the FW version of the Warhound. How tall is the FW Warhound in inches? How wide? Does it say on the FW site? How much larger do we expect the Warlord to be?

I plan on documenting the build process and providing a "How to" article for those people who want a good looking Warlord titan without paying FW prices.

It can be up to 10 inches depending on how you build the legs. I don't own one, so I'm assuming this is referring to a hunched pose or a straight one.

Just use math or something to rough guess the width. If i had to wing it, i'd say six inches from one arm to the other.

Looking forward to the article!

Cadian81st:
I was going to wing it but I do not want it to look out of proportion when GW/FW release resin Warlord titan models.

I want mine to look good. It will not look as good as teh FW models, but it will still look cool...at least I hope. I want to avoid mistakes of poor scale, flat undetailed armor plates and over detailed/uselessly detailed engine/tech parts. I want this to be a good representation of the epic model.

Wikipedia, Doh!! I should have checked there. I looked at some pics of Epic models. The Warlord is twice as tall and twice as wide as the Warhound model.

OK wikpedia states teh Warhound is just over 10 Inches tall when built, which is true, I have one. It states that it is also 14 meters tall in reality. It then goes on to state the Reaver is just over twice as tall at 30 meters. And then goes on to state the Warlord is twice the height of a Reaver standing at 45 meters tall. Well if:

10 inches = 14 meters then 5=7. 45 divided by 5 = 9. 9 X 7 =63. The Warlord is 63 inches tall. That's just over 5 feet!!

Yikes. Hmmm...maybe I'll start with the Reaver titan. :D

*negative sounding buzzer noise*

if you read my post above, it's 50% times the height of a reaver. not 2x, but 1.5x.

this makes it, infact, 3 times the height of a warhound no?

30-40"

Doh! I should have divided 45 meters by 7 meters to get my Inches adjustment. So the sizes are:

Warhound - 10 inches/14 meters
Reaver - 21 inches/14 meters
Warlord - 32 inches/45 meters

Ok, it's not so bad now. That's easily doable.

Warlord titan at the GW manc world record tank battle (not to be confused with the GW chicago one where 90% of the tanks weren't painted (all ours where) or infact where built by staff).



And this is my view when i was "aiming" it....

hope you don't mind a little edit there... :D

on topic though, instead of doing math (which is bad for the brain), couldn't you just stick with the 10" that FW gives as an "official" scale height for a warhound?

Yep, but I'm making a Warlord. It has to be taller.

Wow dude thats quite a undertaking. Looking forward to seeing both the end result and the progression to get there.

One question for you Skcuzzle - how big was the battle?

it should be noted that Skuzzle made a typo, that's a warlord titan, not a warhound.

plus, how tall is it? i reckon its overscaled for effect.

Typo corrected.

Cadian81st - you realise that the Chicago game hasn't been entered in the Guiness book of records, unlike the manchester and previous to that Paris game? Reason been is the criteria for the Paris game was fully painted models, thats now what the criteria is for the record (since they set the precedent) and unfotunatly as the Chicago video shows there are great swaths of un-painted models.

Torealis - the game was played in the hallway of the Arndale shopping centre. Took about 5 hours to play and even then we only called time as it was 6am and ppl had to go to sleep (yes we started at midnight for some crazy reason).
