Title: Could I use the new plastic 28mm Wraithguard/Wraithblades as Revenant Titan Prox
Post by: Stormwind on June 28, 2013, 12:12:41 PM
I have a single "orky" revenant titan.  I don't think I'm ever going to find someone who will sell me a single one to match it at a decent price, so I've been thinking about the new Eldar plastics that GW have released.

These should be about the right size.  Whilst not hugely dynamic or graceful, they look mechanical and inhuman enough that they could pass for giant walkers in 6mm scale, I think.

I could chop off the forarms and glue those guns to them, might make a good titan!

Any thoughts appreciated.

Sounds kosher to me!

I think it might end up quite big, although that's not neccessarily a bad thing!

would love to see pics of what you come up with!

True but it would put it closer to the whole True-Scale I would think (SRW and MRW come to mind, for instance).
Regardless I'm totally stoked to see what you come up with!

the SRW and MRW are impractically big in my experience.... the fact that the MRW towers head and shoulders over a warlord which itself is a chunky model kinda puts me off, lovely models, no need for true scale in a game of abstraction with non-linear range scale!! :)

By all means use them if you like them.

I don't think that they are quite the right size personally, having seen someone else try this, and post comparative pictures.

I am intrigued and would love to see such an example!

My idea was to use Dire Avenger heads and also stick a dreadnought fin on the back of it.

That just tells me we need LRW's now! :D

Small, medium, large walking robots

they make very good proxies for imperial titans, but are now sadly out of production, and the large variant was never produced
