6mm Titans

Good morning,

Here are the last efforts of my holiday before I go back to school. Some old Nexus 6mm Mechs, back from when I used to sell 'em - though for some reason, didn't list them!

(It's a bit of an orphan site now. I marked it up as part of an ICT paper I did a while back, and then passed on the "business" (for the lack of a better term!) to Stan when I started teacher training. (He's doing much better at it than I - I never had the capital to get in the stock) Before I passed it on, I updated it to Stan's [old] email address and then switched ISPs. Now Stan's using another email address, and I can't get back into the site to change it!)


(Sorry about the cloth, I don't have the time to set up anything better - heck, I shouldn't even be doing this, I've got a heap of planning to do for next week!)

I loosely based the colour scheme on Sgt Scream's Battle Tech walkers. Brilliant stuff!

All of mine are Epic Armageddon Scout Titan proxies, with one being slightly heavier than the others. And one considerably more dead than the others!



And for the 'heavy'. I'll make some additions to it's armour/shield stats to reflect it's slightly gruntier look.


And here is the other one (two of each in a box, plus a 'chicken walker' which I'll use as a light medium titan - sort of a small Epic Reaver). Dead. I actually used it's arms to, well, "arm" an Ork Gargant, so it's body I thought might make a good objective marker. Or an interesting piece of terrain.


Here are what the look like against the other 6mm kit...





Right, I really must get back to work.

  1. Nick,
    I am doing the same thing. Some of the plastic mechwarrior "blister" packs can be purchased on Amazon for 5 dollars for 4 mechs and they're just the right size for Epic Armageddon Titans. I will just have to repaint them to look more like the "grim darkness of the 41st millenium where there is only war" lol. NIcely done.

  2. These look good, Nick! I've been thinking about going back into 6mm stuff for a while and Sci-Fi is looking favourite at the moment, so this (along with your previous WH epic post) has got me thinking...

  3. Cheers Steven,

    Really nice 20mm Frenchie, by the way!

    Ah, the wonders of EBay! I was looking at some really cheap AT-43 Red Block walkers for my 20mms (when will someone bring out 20mm GearKreig?!). Alas and alak, EBay isn't really viable for me over here (NZ) - the freight cost is more than the items themselves!
