I was reading my Titan comics from long-departed and much-missed Warhammer Monthly and it occured to me that Imperious Dictatio was pretty much in OliveCamo paint.
Most of the ForgeWorld titans are all pretty heraldic and colourful and I guess there are reasons both to camo-paint a titan for it's combat theatre and also not to bother (pretty big target anyway you look at it). There were some threads from many moons ago that discuss paint schemes for epic but with titans being a bigger(!) part of the mainstream 40K battlefield now that Apocalypse and larger games are coming into focus what are warseerites views on painting your titans?
Hands up who owns a titan (or two!) and how you have painted yours? Any justifications for your outrageous purple and bone quartered paint job?
I should probably justify this being in the background forum by saying that I am more interested in peoples thoughts for the paint-schemes/colouration of titans than the armies they collect but this has a part in the discussion as the background inevitably feeds off what hobbyists actually do.
I personally do not own a titan but if I did field such a thing for my Dark Eldar (and believe me I would have no compunction against doing so using the forgeworld offerings) I would probably paint it in some midnight-hued, predator-esque/bent-light/surface camo technique. My justification? Nothing scarier than a Giant that against all reason you cannot see, that stalks out of the twilight and smashes your strongpoints, leaving you suddenly open to the dark and forced to fight for your lives...
