I like the idea, but how is it supposed to load/reload?

I'd assume they'd load it from behind within the titan itself?

Indeed, looks like the ammo is slid out of the door and into the breach.

It's also using the same rules as the missile launcher so it's ammo is pretty limited in the rules, I think it can only fire for four rounds of the game.

Do you play 30k? It'd be a lot cooler if you did.

Just to underline how bad they are for the points, here's a good article on the volkite weapons and their issues in game:

On the one hand, I'm glad that this is not the other way around, with a hard to get an expensive FW weapon becoming a "must have" because it would be much more efficient point for point than alternatives.
On the other hand, I'm really sad that those (at least the Warhound & Reaver versions) don't even seem to have a niche use... Also very angry at the "card included" packaging.

What a pity. Definitely should have been beam weapons by default

So just another example of how cool the AT third party options are and how far ahead of gw/fw they are, this is artisans of vaul's new warmaster carapace weapon, it also seems like the mount might be workable for some of the warbringer carapace weapons.

Just noticed that Battlebling now has claws and lances for warhounds, for £7 each.

Not sure which one to go for when dealing with Knights...

Casual gaming, mostly solo-coop these days.

RAW the claws do zilch against Knights, so...

Natrix Shock Lance causes Titans to go on Shutdown orders.

So have the US folks who ordered Volkite weapons...got theirs yet? My order has been pending for almost 3 weeks. Most of my order was other stuff, but I'm starting to wonder about it.

My lot have turned up. Just got the Destructor to assemble. The Eradicators are going to be shelf warmers for now but I've got them for completionist sake

Edit: ah sorry, didn't spot the US

Nope. Still waiting on mine as well. I ordered them as soon as they were available, and they still haven't been shipped (along with the other stuff I ordered). I'm not sure what the point of a preorder is if they don't actually fulfill it when the items are available.

Seems like a number of people are in the same boat. Wonder if they never got their shipment in?

I'm hoping other stuff in my order doesn't go out of stock before they find/receive/create all the missing volkites.

I've not been impressed with FW's fufillment lately. And their billing process is a mess, not counting the non-UK markup slapped onto everything these days.

Just putting it out there, battlebling's ability to ship in a reasonable timeframe is worthy of note, in my case it was literally a bespoke model order because they had to print the custom titan name plates and I'm pretty sure that took like 2-3 days and shipping was super fast considering, less than a couple weeks.

Compared to FW, almost everyone ships in reasonable timeframe.

Except Mierce.

Games Workshop are not your friends. They are not a small dev trying their best. They are a multibillion dollar company making calculated decisions about how many costs they can cut, how lazy they can be about relases, and how much they can paywall. They will do it again. Stop giving them money for this.
