View Full Version : What would make a good close combat weapon for a Phantom titan?

I have an old armorcast phantom titan. I am making a close combat weapon arm, but I am wanting to stay away from the over-used powerfist look. What would make a good "eldar" like design? A giant Powersword (Like the Wraithlord) might be nice, but how about a giant Harlequins kiss?

My vote is for a giant power sword. However, you know CCWs arent really that cool on titans right? They die pretty easy in CC even with a 4+ save(is that only against shooting? I dont have my rules on me)

Isn't the default weapon of a Warlock variant Phantom basically a Singing Spear? So a Witchblade or similar weapon would fit quite well.

I vote for something like a rapier.

Yes, I know that titans aren't the best when armed with a CCW. I just think that a giant sword would look cool. Plus, Eldar titans are inititive 2, so they would go before Imperial or Ork titans, so it's not so bad.

For now this is just going to be an add-on arm for my Phantom. I have plans to scratch build another one using an 18-inch tall artist manikin. For the sword caring arm I am using an arm from an X-men Sentinel action figure. Its fingers are poseable (so it can hold a sword), it's the right size, and the curves look like they will fit in with an eldar titan just fine.

Well I assume for Titan vs Titan use... I would assume something at that size wouldn't use a physical "sword" but more an energy "blade." Think Light saber, or Gundam Beam sabers.

I don't know, having a 50 foot long, 4 ton, monomolecular blade with an energy field around it might be a tad scary if it was being swung around in an intimidating manner. LOL

Now I'm getting visions of a giant Sword cutting a Baneblade in half.
