Hello Apocalypse fans! We are currently in the works of building three Warlord Battle Titans as a commission job so we decided to make a thread to show our work. We already have one near completion and the other two are going to be taking shape very soon.

We decided to start casting certain pieces of the titan to speed up production ans we are still in the process of molding and casting new pieces.

On to the pictures!

Here is the first plate for the foot:

And here is it with it's toes:

Start of the leg( will be cast in resin):

Cut outs of the front Chest plate:

Starting form of the top vents:

And here is a couple pictures of our current titan that is near completion:

That looks really good, Across a table it would look as good as forgeworld stuff.  The internal crew details are about the only thing fw has on it, are they crew details even seen outside of display models.  How tall is it?  I can't tell from photos.

Excellent craftsmanship, to bad it's such an ugly style.

Lane, I don't know about that - they look pretty good to me. Right proportions, right pose, right size.

I also would like to know what cost would be once you've figured out the resin molds.

I totally disagree Lane!  I think the Warlord is the best looking Titan.  I love the design and ordered one of the ones you see him building here!

The style just seems unimaginative to me, like the sculptor was looking at a bunch of battlemechs and thinking how he could fit them into 40k.
The Turtle Shell Warlord was original, if not practical, and better represents the ancient technology used to build them.

At least it's not as bad as the Phantom titan resculpt.

As of right now the full height is reaching just over 32"

Going rate for one fully build and primed along with your choice of arm weapons and shoulder weapons, $1,500.

That Sir all depends on where you live, In the states would be around $200-400..on the other hand we have had a quote to the UAE for $900.....
Total weight is between 55-60 lbs.


Thanks for everyone's interest! Wont get a chance to work on them until tomorrow but should have some progress pictures for you!

Comparatively speaking that's about what I expected , not that ill be getting one anytime soon... but its affordable as compared to fw models.

For those of us who might consider buying one of these in the future such as myself (far future, but future nonetheless), where are you based out of? At the shipping rates for that size and weight, I would personally see if you were AT ALL close to me and try to come get it myself, possibly saving $100+ in the process.

For some people it would be worth buying a plane ticket and picking it up in person.

What part of Michigan?

I grew up in Midland but now live where the weather is nice, forecast in the 80's next week.

That is some incredible work!  I take it you're using some sort of CNC machine to cut out the parts?  Very precise.

I love the plasma destroyer.  Well done!

I don't know how you make your heads, but let me know if you'd like some of mine to save you some effort.  I can't tell if yours are resin or scratch-made.  Mine have been well received.
