Blast From The Past Scratch Built Mars Pattern Warhound Titan



It's been over 6 years since I made my Warhound and in all that time it is still my favourite and most fun I have had scratch building (also my first attempt at airbrushing too), were as the Warlord went on for so long it ended up being a chore. The Khorne Worldeater helmet was fun but as it was created under a tight deadline for Throne of Skulls the fun was taken out of it at the end.  What's your favourite?

My new love of all Knights has not wavered recently and definitely not now the Chaos Knight is out with new chaos rules and a slight tweak to the Reaper Chainsword, called the Foe-reaper Chainsword.  Also posted are the rules:-

KYTAN DAEMON ENGINE OF KHORNE


The Kytan Daemon engine has finally been released from the dark depths of Forge World, including the new experimental rules. (click here) At just 525 points WS5, I5 and four 'D' attacks, then add rage, it's a formidable opponent for the Imperial Knight and the Wraith Knight.  But will it do the business or should we all wait the the Chaos Knight?  

To be honest I'm undecided, if only I had pots of money then I could buy them both.  But I do think the legs are a little to small for the torso and if I had my time again I would have given my Lord of Skulls hind legs like the Kytan (I should have thought of that).  The legs on my Lord of Skull are a little chunky with giant feet compared the FW kit.  


Additionally the two major differences between the Kytan and the Lord of Skulls (apart from the Stomp rules) is that the Kytan has lost the Hellstorm template weapon and the extra attacks for being wounded, which to be honest were the only good rules for the Lord of Skulls, but it is 300 points less, swings and round about.  

P.S. I am very interested in your opinion on what you think the best lord of war would be because I cannot make my mind up:-  Lord of Skulls, Kytan or the Chaos Knight

New Battle Fleet Gothic anybody? well almost


I was so excited when I saw this on BOLS, at last I thought 'GW have seen the light and have re-invented Battle Fleet Gothic and may be 40K Epic would be next.'  Alas they haven't but it could just be taster for things to come, At-least that's what I'm hoping anyway :)


The playing pieces look cool though, maybe I could buy 10 boxes of Forbidden Stars and use them for both Epic and Battle Fleet Gothic :)
