By far the most impressive model we have ever produced, the Mars pattern Warlord Titan stands at over 22 inches tall and weighs more than twice that of a Reaver Titan. Consisting of more than 200 parts, this huge model is amazingly poseable and immensely detailed, from its pistons, vents and access hatches to the intricately designed cockpit and crew inside its head and the embossed icons on its armour plates. It will truly be the pinnacle of any collection and will dominate any battlefield it is placed on.

The colossal Mars pattern Warlord Titan is among the most ancient and feared of the Imperium’s war machines. Forged on the Red Planet itself, it is worshipped and venerated as the Omnissiah’s will incarnate, and each god-engine is encased in layered armour and powerful void shielding, and armed with weapons that are capable of reducing armies to ash.

In addition to its ardex-defensor mauler bolt cannon and lascannon turrets, support weapons that would be considered main armaments on smaller war machines, the Warlord is commonly fitted with a pair of carapace-mounted triple-barrelled laser blasters and two Belicosa
pattern Volcano cannon.

The Belicosa pattern Volcano cannon is one of the most potent energy weapons produced by the forges of the Mechanicum. It is so fearsome infact that only the plasma reactor of the Warlord Titan can feed its ravenous appetite for power and make possible the destruction of the most terrible foes of Mankind. The Warlord’s triple-barrelled laser blasters are also immensely powerful weapons, created to destroy entire squadrons of armoured vehicles in each blazing volley.

Princeps (plural: principes) is a Latin word meaning “first in time or order; the first, foremost, chief, the most eminent, distinguished, or noble; the first man, first person.”

A Princeps are members of the Collegia Titanica and the main operator of an Imperial Titan. They, together with two or more Moderatii are mentally linked with the Titan’s “spirit”. In effect, they are the Titan. –Courtesy Lexicanum

One boxes’ parts are literally all as big as a Rhino (pic NOT photoshopped).

Overall this kit looks to be a dream to assemble, as being rendered in CAD has really made the components much easier to assemble that past titan kits. Tolerances are on point, flash is minimized across areas of detail, and everything actually fits together with no guess work.

I can’t wait to actually put this beast together and catalog it in a brand new video series for the new year!

An amazing kit, the likes of which we have never seen before. Kudos to the sculptor Will Hayes, all praise the Omnissiah!
