Default Should I get a Banebland or a Warhound Titan? (totally serious)

Based on the following discussion, I will make a warhound titan or a baneblade from templates I have downloaded.
I'd also like people's opinions on weapons loadout for the titan if that's what I chose.
So, even if you don't know much about these two mothas please post- I'd like to hear your opinions. I play orks, so that's mainly hoard but they can throw in some pretty good vehicles into the mix as well.

Now, before you decide please consider that I have looked at each template carefully, and without doubt they are both very difficult. Strangely enough the Baneblade looks harder to build, so I'm leaning to the Warhound, because it also looks easy to paint (head to Ace Hardware and use all those nice, flat surfaces) as well as the fact that it has amazing "fear factor" and makes a great model. I'm playing too many mega battles (they're that fun) to go longer without using a super heavy...

I must blow stuff up!

join the club, get a baneblade. since your an ork player you could have a looted baneblade, a warhound would be rather hard for orks to capture.

What are you constructing them from? Plasticard?

Where'd you get the templates?

Oh and Giant robots = kickass

I would build the Titan. Although I prefer the rules for the Baneblade, the Titan makes a great centerpiece for a battlefield even if you aren't actually using it in-game.

I'd go with the Baneblade, too - something about it is just so much more ominous and powerfull looking than the Titan, I feel, despite it's lack of legs.

And where'd you get the templates?! This I must have!

Oops- typo. I don't play orks, I play against orks.

Because of this, I'm thinking of giving the Warhound an Inferno Cannon thingy and a Vulcan Mega Bolter. (read the stats... that's one heck of a lot of rending shots).

Templates came from a site that I'll post, but my computer's being poopy so I can't get the link for you. You have to be a member of the site to get to the templates, and you have to submit why you want to be a member to get in.

A baneblade, in my opinion, is better. A Titan is too scary... a Baneblade is more of this:

"What? That thing can't have 6 HBs, two lascannons, a Demolisher cannon, a Battle-cannon the size of a conduit, AND another autocannon that is CO-AXIAL! Its a tank, not a fortress!"

Meanwhile, the Titan will be more of this:
"*Picks up all of his orks* You win. Happy?"

Go for the Baneblade, and make two. Make the first one looted, and give it to your friend after the first battle he manages to destroy it. Then, whip out your spare and go head-to-head Baneblade style!

Meh, my opinion. Actually, my opinion would be just go buy an actual Baneblade... but, thats out of the question...

I'm still wondering what a "Banebland" is... :P

I'd go with the 'Blade. Its a "friggin' 'uge" tank!! And as The Generalissimo says, a Titan would be too scary for your opponent.

baneblades are no doubt awesome. a titan sounds like a really cool project tho. hopefully, seeing your titan will inspire your ork buddy to make a gargant to fight it! and that would be frickin sweet! 2 titans clash while battle swirls around them...
