Dawn - Titan Hades Squad

Hi guys,

We're happy to continue working on the many facets of our home made sci-fi miniature skirmish game. We are proud to present you another faction from the Solar system: Titan. Models are old elite IP from GW. As for the simple conversion, I just chopped off that ugly edge from their lasgun and put a visor on it. Hope you enjoy.

Titan is one of the many moons of Saturn. The spontaneous birth of live on Titan started in parallel with the final judgement on earth. To the contrary of the actual appearances, the Ulsurians were the first race to set foot on the liveable moon and forestall humanity's colonization. The Ulsurian monks hosted the colonists welcome and forced them a convention to harmonize with a too fragile natural equilibrium.

For Titanids, this oasis of peace has to be protected at all costs. Over the generations a tenacious paranoia has been installed towards any possible threat and visitors are systematically discouraged by extremely severe admission conditions. The majority of the population lives in orbital stations around the moon under a stern birth control. Taking profit from this situation, the Titan government accommodated in secret research bases and military infrastructures. 

The dreaded elite special forces are called The Hades squads. Titan chooses only the best men from a difficult selection. The Hades squads are committed to many missions, including planetary defense, infiltration and anti-terrorism.

    1. Thanks Michael,

      Yes. We thought about a blue-like vegetation for the Titan moon to give it a more alien look.

      Cheers

    1. Thanks Morterei,

      For the game, its a sci-fi/fantasy skirmish game. Based around alternative activation with a few twists. Players can keep the initiative to play a further activation and every unactivated model counts as being in overwatch. This makes (I think) gameplay interesting as players are confronted with playing models first or keeping them in reserve for a possible reaction to the enemy.

      Cheers
