Warlord Titan No.309- Lunae Irae, Legio Astorum

Certificate Number: 309
Titan Name: Lunae Irae (Lunar Wrath)
Pattern: Mars Alpha Pattern Warlord.
Head Unit: Mars Alpha pattern
Primary Armament: Twin Belicosa Volcano Cannons, two shoulder mounted laser blasters.
Princeps: Princeps Cynthia Lunae
Titan Legio: Legio Astorum
Battle Maniple Composition: Reaver Battle Titan 1624, Mars Pattern Warhound Scout Titan (hyena configuration) 3726

Owner: Adam R.
Location: Terra, United States, Missouri.
Comments: One of a few Titans to be passed down through generations within the same bloodline, Lunae Irae has always been commanded by a Female Princeps, which is by itself very unusual. In command of Astorum Battle Maniple Starspite, being an odd mix of Titans itself, they continue to wage war upon the foes of man across the galaxy.

Additional non story comments, this titan is the third of three, a Warhound, Reaver, and this one purchased, built and painted by me, with a lot of WIP photos once I can find a decent way to send them.

Photos: see below.


A mighty engine ready for war!

Lunae Irae stands ready to deliver her fury.


A lot of work and time was put into this lovely project.

Painted in parts with weathering started early and a lot of thought into Warlord.

(Great looking engine- TOC)


  1. Beautiful work, love it. Great details and looks great with the Maniple. Brilliant stuff, how did you achieve the mottled effect of the blue?

    1. For the most part it's done similar to the ForgeWorld scheme from the masterclass 2 book.

      So a medium blue base color darker blue over that staying out of recesses. Highlights with light blue and then random lines of blue and purple inks.

      Color wise I used GW mordian blue, regal blue, Vallejo Model Air sky blue (very thin). And then Army Painter inks.

  2. Awesome work, love the left knee pad with the checks and marks! The armour itself manages to look kind of "creamy" without any obvious blending - superb work!

    1. Thank you, I am really pleased with the outcome. Gotta give thanks to Drake for his oil wash method, it really did wonders for the thing.

  3. I see a few things here that I want to emulate on my Warlord as well.
