Legio Mortis – The Death Head Titan Legion, Ferrum Mori Maniple

Posted: February 26, 2017 in Death Head Titan Legion, Epic Armageddon

Welcome back!

While I haven’t been posting for some time, I have been quite busy.  Lots of painting and terrain making.  Over the coming few days/weeks I’ll be posting up pictures of what I’ve been up to.  Generally speaking, its been a bit of 30k, and a bit of Epic.

This post is one I’ve been wanting to do for some time.  Seriously.  Ever since I saw the Ferrum Mori Death Head Titan Maniple in Book I of the Horus Heresy series, I knew I wanted one.


However doing one in 40k scale is seriously crazy (I did consider it at one stage though…).

Presently, I’m going through a big Epic Armageddon phase (as well as GW boxed games – GW, you’re doing it right).  So naturally, reproducing this Maniple in 6mm was not only more economical, but also more practical.  Now, I actually bought these Titans waaaay back in August 2015!  So that is how long they’ve been sitting around in various states of un-paintedness.  As some of you may know, I’m not one for having unpainted models just sitting around.  So it really has been bothering me.

Another reason I delayed getting this Maniple finished was I heard a rumour that a 6mm Warlord was getting produced….

Ok, so lets get to the pictures.



A nice family shot, don’t you think?

In the front row, we have (from the left) Warhound Sothis, Warhound Carrion Crow, and Warhound Blood Wolf.

In the second row, we have (from the left) Reaver Dread Wake, Reaver Myrmidon Rex, and Reaver Ferrum Mori.

In the third row, we have (from the left) Reaver Mortmain, Warlord Manus Mortis and finally, Reaver Hand of Ruin.

So a few close ups.

And who could forget Manus Mortis…

I hope you enjoyed looking at this as much as I enjoyed painting them.

Expect to see a few more posts over the coming days.  You won’t be disappointed.

Please feel free to leave your comments/remarks.

Until next post, take care.


PS.  I’m running a 40k Epic Armageddon competition at BrisCon this year in April.  If you’d like to come, please drop by the BrisCon website, download the players pack and register.  It’s going to be an awesome event.

    They look great. Awesome War Maniple.

    Any chance of adding more pics of the Warhounds?

  2. All seriously bad arse looking mate.My fave is Manus Morris.

    • John says:

      Yeah, that Warlord is the amazing. To think that the depth of talent and dedication in this noble hobby runs so deep that some guy in his garage made a 6mm version of that kit is a real indictment on the quality of this hobby

  3. Warburton says:

    Great stuff. I’m looking forward to GW re-releasing Adeptus Titanicus (though my wallet isn’t….).

  4. Steve Williams says:

    Lovely paint job! All those multiple rocket launchers… There is one thing I found slightly jarring though – there are only 3 Warhounds when they’re reknowned for hunting in pairs. You’ll just have to source and paint another Warhound:)

  5. Col.hertford says:

    Dam, they look good.

  6. Joe B. says:

    Fantastic work John! Each has a ton of character and look amazing all together. It will interesting to see what GW does with the new version of the game

  7. Greg B says:

    This is brilliant!
    I’m actually skeptical that GW will ever re-release the game, but hopefully they will figure it out.

  8. Sean Schoonmaker says:

    Amazing work! Hope the FW/GW 8mm ones look as good!

    Hey john, how did you do the banners for the reavers?
