Chaos Warhound Titan - Auctorem Fidei

It's done... Almost two years since I got it, and close to a year in the making. There's a few more smaller things I might do, but isn't there always?

This is where I usually go on a bit about the whys and the hows, but I believe I've covered most of those in earlier posts. The 'glow'effects on the weapons are obviously airbrushed, but I was so focused on the task at hand when I painted them that I totally forgot to take any WIP pictures. Let's just finish this of with a few pics instead...

Actually... Perhaps I should write a few words about the name I've chosen. As far as I can ascertain, Auctorem Fidei translates to Faith's Pathfinder. Rather fitting for a Scout Titan attached to the Word Bearers Legion, no?

I do wonder what its partner would be called...



  1. Congratulation Jørn!

    One word - Awesome! One phrase - good job! Those cannons looks so powerfull. Look forward to our two Warhonds clashing on Calth:)

    1. Thank you, Ørn! It's been a fun and rewarding project to work on, but it's really good to be able to declare it 'finished'.
      ...almost, anyway. Looking over the pictures, I've noticed a few details I want to go back and revisit.

  2. A late response to this Post, Jørn. I bet this must be a nightmarish dream come true for you. This is not 28 millimeter, this is a huge piece of Warhammer 40K modelling and the end result is perfect. Congratulations! If not on your army list in every game, I must say I hope you will make use of the machine as a terrain piece. Looking forward to thorough inspection, maybe even before your birthday party...

    1. Well, you did post a comment on our public FaceBook page fairly quickly...

      A dream, yes, but not a nightmare. It's been challenging, and there was a few hurdles I had to figure out how to jump, but it was never not enjoyable.

      As for using it on the tabletop... I've already ordered both the Escalation and Stronghold Assault books. :D Meanwhile, I'm sure we can find an evening to play this week or the next if your (work)schedule isn't too tight. (Feel free to bring the New Project along. Just let me know how many points you've got assembled.)

  3. Better late than never:) Looks great!!
