The heaviest titan yet sighted in Battlegroup Infidel, the Legio Mortis warlord Titan Odium Aeternum has been fighting alongside the XIVth Legion since the great crusade.
Like other titans in the battlegroup, it shows a high level of superficial damage from prolonged deployments in hostile war zones, yet remains fully combat effective.
Originally I had it in a matte black finish, with silver trim and rust effects from a wash of highly thinned brown enamel paint. I gave it a big nurgly banner (seen further below) and added it in as a support card for the Daemon Prince Mortarion. The weapons that you see here are the original ones that came with it in the box, but I have others that I can swap out as I please.
The colours now are based on a mix of the old Death's Head colours from Adeptus Titanicus (black with red trim) and the more contemporary ones from Forgeworld's Book 1 Betrayal (black with red and white stripes and cheques).
Like the other titans of Battlegroup Infidel I have restricted red to the trim and weapons, with the stripes and cheques being white.
I've added a few spot colours of aggressive looking rust to help add a bit of interest to the models, and make them look like they have seen a fair bit of action.I resisted the temptation to add a heap of blood splatter to the chain fist, as I thought it would look a bit too over the top, and add too much red.
I painted the head white, and added an "Eye of Horus" marking to the eye to make it look that little bit more like a traitor titan.
I was going to scrape the Imperial Aquilla symbol off the top of the carapace, but instead decided that, rather than irreversibly deface this old model, I would just paint a hastily added looking eye symbol over the aquilla, to assist with the "we've turned traitor" look.
Way back when I added a big inspiring banner to it, that I copied from one of the Chaos Reward cards that came in the Renegades boxed set. It is just a freehand sketch with an ink pen, finished with watered down acryllic paints. I later added a bit of battle damage to it, and weathered it further with some brown inks. The warlord titan model came with two heads too, so I added the spare to the banner pole, and gave it a Legio Ignatum colour scheme to foster the hatred between the two.
