Holiday Gift Guide 2009: Chaos Reaver Titan

Nobody will think lesser of you if you can’t shell out for this humongous model, but if your wish list includes a lot of hellish fiends and eight-pointed stars, you should add this just for kicks.

The size is mammoth. The detail is phenomenal. The weapon arms and missile launcher are sold separately, but they are mandatory.

I recently bought my first Forge World models (not the Titan, something much smaller), and their quality matches exactly what you see on their site. I’ll concede that I prefer metal and plastic to working with resin (particularly with warpage and brittle-ness), but the amount of detailing in Forge World models is worth it. (Eh, do I wish I had a Dremel to remove and sand off the mold plugs? Hell yes. My advice if you only have a hobby knife: make wedges in the large excess resin tabs (the mold plugs)–you can’t do it in a single straight cut. Next time I’m getting a Dremel.)

Forge World is continues its wonderful Imperial Armour series year after year, so if the Chaos Reaver Titan is out of your price range, check out the books.
