Well I got my hands on an Imperial Warlord Titan. I got him off Ebay, and I had to admit I had a smile on my face looking at him in the box. He is unpainted, unassembled, and just waiting to be given a home and a fun face lift. Plus it was a lot of fun telling some of my friends I had a Titan, only to reveal he was of slightly smaller stature. But this post is about magnetizing him, giving him the paint job of the Iron Hands legion (only because the Iron Hands would appreciate him more than the Space Wolves would), and figuring out how I could use him as a Proxy unit.
The First thing is that this is an awesome miniature, even though it is metal and not plastic. He looks good, and it is a little challenging deciding what to magnetize. I decided to go ahead and magnetize both arms in the underneath joint, as well as his head. I used 1/16 inch magnets in the joint and on the arm top. I also used the same magnets on the head and the inside joint hole.
After seeing how my Iron Hands Priest turned out. I decided to go with a lighter color combo, and use Ice Blue, Grey, and Chaos Black at a Ratio of 1:1:2 to give a Grey, Blue, Black color that would show an ancient walking behemoth. I started with a watered down base and painted almost everything that had the armor plating. Then I went over the areas that are going to be a different color with a Ironbreaker / Gunmetal color. I decided that all of the wires would be combinations of Blood Red and Ironbreaker Grey. I mixed these at a 2:1 ratio of Red to Grey to give it a Bright yet hazy look. I then made some "cooling" wires that were 2:1 ratio of Ice Blue to Gunmetal.
