so starts my warlord blog, been talking about getting it since its unveil, and finally took possession of mine at the FW open day on sunday. 

 

gallery_69_18_1355295.jpg

 

the body, comes in the two large red boxes, one box contains all the large parts which don't need (or fit into) the bags, its all bubble wrapped very well. each of the other parts comes in their own white box, interestingly the boxes are plain, with item info on stickers, so FW might be planning to use these boxes for packaging other products (more fuel for the rumour mill of FW in GW stores).

 

and in case your wondering, mine is number 37

 

med_gallery_69_18_427895.jpg

 

started washing it all today, got today and tomorrow off, so hoping to get all the cleaning and preliminary work done before i go back to work. 

 

gallery_69_18_470183.jpg

 

above is the first box with all the large bits, just about fits into the larger tub. little one has the two volcano cannons in it, the second red box and the multi-laser turrets are being done after these (not enough tubs).

 

below is the multi-laser turrets in their bags.  as you can see, not that many parts, but their very big parts none the less.

gallery_69_18_125413.jpg

below is one of the bagged parts of the warlord, contains most of the smaller armor plates, interestingly the knee and thigh armour are a single piece.

 

gallery_69_18_42445.jpg

 

 

instruction booklets for the warlord are great, follow the same style as the knight warden kit (to my understanding, haven't actually seen it).

 

follows more like a lego kit than a forge world one "here's a picture of a completed kit, make it look like that".

gallery_69_18_327054.jpg

 

plan is to build the guns, legs and torso separately, with all the armour plating left off. then paint the bitch, then finish building it, which is the same method i used for my knights. also planning to paint it the same scheme as my knight household (red armour, gold trim with bone coloured plates to break it up).

Oh man! Looks like that thing is going to be a beauty! I can't wait to see the progress on this massive thing. I can only dream of the day that I'll be able to get one.

wow that is a whole lotta model there.  Interested to see how it progresses.  The cleaning alone seems it would take a while.

After seeing a lot of your models so far I'm not sure if I should follow this... it'll just make me sad that a: I don't own a Warlord and b: suck at painting models... :D

 

Well...

 

...

 

Following now. Looking forward to this master piece.

won't have to wait long, finished cleaning it all, rather shocked laying it all out, as it barely fit on my dining table.

stood up princeps model at the front center, for scale. this is going to be a long build and complex build (and and even longer paint).

its going to belong to one of my own invention, normally go for existing canon, but love my colour scheme, and can't find a 30k existing legio with it. so i'm inventing my own. Might as well, as my knight house is based on the Lannisters from GoT, it will probably have a legio name based on lions of some sort. 

 

have chosen the titans name though, for now its called "puer tonitrui" which translates as 'child of thunder' or 'thunderchild' (points for the reference). although it could change, if inspiration hits during construction.

Thunderchild? Just stay away from Volkites. Last time out, Thunderchild didn't do very well against Martian Death Rays and if you see any tripod war-machines run.

Like the reference though, very clever.

that is one of my general life principles to stay away from the receiving end of volkite technology. same will go for my warlord. (not that any existing volkite weapons can actually harm it)

Love the War of the Worlds reference  ;) Looking forward to seeing it painted!

 

I have fantasies of doing a maniple of warhounds and reavers from Legio Mortis led by one of these bad boys so I want to see how painful it is to build!

looking at the kit and instructions, I don't think it's going to be too bad, only problems will be the alternations i'll be making to allow me to swap out the arms and head, as i've never done anything like it. (looking into who i can bribe into doing those bits for me ATM).

Looking forward to this.

Don't forget the volkite carronade!  Maybe a legion glaive could do some damage to the warlord.....maybe....if the wind is blowing the right way.....

 

This will be a fun thread to follow.

the warlord titan is immune to haywire, and its str8, which can't harm the front or side armours, (and the likelihood of sneaking a glaive behind my warlord to be able to shoot at its back is doubtful) and even then, its a single glance only at best.

PROGRESS!

 

legs are built, and all the armour plating (that's removable and not needed for construction) is undercoated, ready for painting.

 

gallery_69_18_351928.jpeg

 

the obligatory scale shot of the legs with a Tech Priest (of the titan variant no less) and my knight-lancer, who's going to have his work cut out.

gallery_69_18_572720.jpeg

 

below are shots of the legs without the armour plateing and a close up of the leg/hip joints.

med_gallery_69_18_1093945.jpeg   med_gallery_69_18_301287.jpeg

 

above are shots of the feet and a full leg shot of the back, which has a lot more detail on it as little of it will be covered in armour.

 

and final shot of the warlord's "slot" (mark bedford's term not mine) which is to provide an easy place to pick it up.

 

med_gallery_69_18_844307.jpeg

 

progress is going to slow down now, as i'm back into my full work pattern, and i'm holding off building the torso and gun arms until i can get the gear for magnetising the head, and making removable bolts for the arms. so i'll be working on painting the armour, and will probably make the two multi-laser turrets as well.
