Warlord Titan No.728- Vulpes Corvum Videt Mortis, Legio Ignatum

Certificate Number: 728
Titan Name: Vulpes Corvum Videt Mortis
Pattern: Mars Pattern
Head Unit: Lucius- Alpha Pattern
Primary Armament: Dual Mars Pattern Belicosa Volcano Cannons, carapace mounted apocalypse missile launchers
Princeps: Lord Hunanath
Titan Legio: Legio Ignatum
Battle Maniple Composition: None

Owner: Joshua H.
Location: Maryland, USA
Comments: Vulpes Corvum Videt Mortis (Raven of Death) is one of the newest constructed titans in the Imperium of Man, being completed only a few years before the triumphant return of the Primarch Guilliman. 

With its inception into the imperial war machine Vulpes Corvum Videt Mortis was dispatched days after completion to the House Raven home world of Kolossi, tasked with defending Inviolate Keep from the horrors that the recent warp storms had been spreading throughout the Imperium.  While not having participated in any notable campaigns Vulpes Corvum Videt Mortis stands ready to exterminate all those who oppose the will of the Emperor of Mankind.

Thought of the day.  “ Victory needs no explanation, defeat allows none”



This is where it really starts to sink in the you bought a Warlord.

Titan Hangar- And Books Too

Titan Hangar is a celebration of where the TOC engines fight on a routine basis.  The first place of mayhem is Shadow's own local FLGS, And Books Too in Louisiana.  This store is the home base of Natus Est Tempestas, Venator Lupus, Augusti Fortuna, Execratus, Invictus Nova, the Triumvirate of Spirits, the Lance of Rebirth, and the Fire Storms of Rexis.  

For these Banners and Titans, it's home field all the time.  And Books Too is nestled in the heart of "Cajun Country", as it's called, and the mix of people and food are always a treat, usually featuring prominently in any event that the TOC members participate in.  The store's manager, Jeff, is a constant fixture at the store and is the driving force behind why the store caters to its players as well as it does.  

Venator Lupus in action at one of the Thanksgiving Massacre events.

Seven different Titan/Banner owners (some not registered on TOC) call the store home and play games several times a year.  The reason we don't have an exact number of games played at the store is because Jeff has a very simple policy for the players: laissez-faire.  So long as the players stay relaxed, coordinate with the store, and keep the place clean, then they're welcome to show up with their large models whenever they wish.  They're even willing to do extended hours for special games, including the annual Thanksgiving Massacre held by a local group.

Trey and Rose, two of TOC's Banner owners, get in a regular game of 40k.

The store offers a wide variety of 40k, AoS, board games, and more, giving players free reign over the tables and terrain as needed.

It's not uncommon for the store's larger games to take up a lot of space, and even then, the store has plenty of room to spare.  Not only that, but it caters to comics (it's main niche), Age of Sigmar, Magic: the Gathering, and many more game systems.  It's a place for gamers of all stripes and is certainly a welcoming hangar for TOC Titans.

Update Reaver Titan No.2140 - Indicum Malleus, 14-9-18

Benny has put in some serious work on his Reaver Titan. He has sent us some photos to show us his progress.


Really cool industrial-looking base!

Whatever is staring down those Volcano Cannons doesn't stand a chance!

The Rite of Cleansing

Reaver Titan No.2297 - Azeus Aeternum, Legio Vulturum

Certificate Number: 2297.
Titan Name: Azeus Aeternum "Vengeance Incarnate"
Pattern:  Mars Pattern Reaver 
Head Unit: N/A
Primary Armament:  Volcano Cannon, Reaver Power Fist, Apocalypse Launcher
Princeps: Kygar Abdurax
Titan Legio:  Fomerly Legio Vulturum, now attached to Traitoris Knight House Briaros
Battle Maniple Composition: N/A

Owner: Paul S.
Location: London, UK
Comments: I built this titan as an ally and centrepiece for my chaos knight household and so painted it the same colours - In my fluff the princeps, who was always a fiercely independent and aggressive character, has abandoned the rest of his legion after growing disgruntled at their lack of activity and sought out more proactive forces of chaos, finding a home supporting the traitor knights of Briaros as they scour the scondraga nebula of any imperial souls in reach

The body is magnetised, and the LED wires for the eyes are drilled through to sit under the carapace (they blend in pretty well with the mass of cables in the head anyway) - taking a power drill to the eye sockets was a pretty daunting prospect but I think it came out well in the end!

Fun fact: the swamp forest base took as long to build and paint as the entire rest of the model.



This is a beautiful example of Heresy at its finest!

As if it didn't look menacing enough already, the lights in the eyes make this engine look truly evil!

So much detail on the base. Nurgle's bells are ringing.
