Theres also the matter of renegade knight banners, which would be...interesting.


It'd be nice to have a banner of knights that could at least take a shot or two without melting, a corruption/ability to basically have the equiv of a void shield or invul save regardless of weapon strength would be quite a welcome upgrade. I still don't know why we can't just pay a stratagem point to give the only banner of knights in a battlegroup one of the knight leader traits.

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

Thunderhawks will be a huge scenic and objective element for the tabletop in AT.

Really looking forward to those...

I take it that the Thunderhawk is going to be the new best seller for Aeronautica, in the same way that the Warlord is for Titanicus?

Space Marines will probably be a solid seller for Aeronautica. I've seen a few mentions of combined campaigns for Titanicus, Heresy and Aeronautica. Expect legion colours for the marines. I'm planning to do a bunch of mine in Legion colours

It will be interesting to see if the Traitors book has Corrupted Titans or not. I can see it going either way.


It pretty much has to or something is wrong. For one, they've been referenced in the rules so if not in the traitor book it'd be disappointing to have to get yet another supplement after getting what's largely a compendium. But also, the loyalist book re-printed the psi titan rules, so the traitor book would be pretty lacking if it didn't have corrupted rules. Hell one of the newer rules from the traitor book is a piece of a wargear that directly affects corrupted enemies. It'd be really disappointing to have it be it's own book we have to wait till next year for.


I wouldn't say that it has to. The game and release schedule is still mostly built around campaign books, and I can see them waiting to properly feature Corrupted Titans in a campaign with a proper narrative instead of just doled out in a compendium. I'd also be very surprised if they didn't have kits to sell alongside the first release of CT rules. But there's a good chance that those kits will be resin upgrades from FW, so we can't rule out those appearing alongside the new Warmaster. So we shall see.

Wonder what will happen first? Corrupted Titans or the Psi-Titan coming back into stock?

Don't think the Psi is that far away from being back in stock. I've picked up two from WHW in last couple of months. Issue in getting one has been the correct Warlord kit rather than the FW elements.

Ha!

You beat me to it!

I've been trying to get the Psy-Titan since it was initially released, (x) months ago.

So long now I've forgotten...

I've probably not been paying enough attention lately - how does the Iconoclast differ from the 'standard' Warmaster - is it just in it's (ridiculous) "close combat" approach and weapon setup?

I have a FW Psi Titan from when it first came out. Now though, I'd just buy the bits from Battle Bling for it.

A bit of everything really....... And where's the icons for DUST Tactics, Firestorm Armada, Super Dungeon Explore, Sedition Wars, Relic Knights, Epic Armageddon????

Chain sword arm, grav imploder / siege drill arm, three more head options, and the cruciator Gatling array instead of the carapace revelator missile launcher. Basically swapping out the weapon/head sprue just like on the warlord and the reaver titans,

Artisans of vaul/Battle bling have some options on the psi titan front. The psi titan terminal is basically just a warlord terminal, as long as you have the psi titan rules and warlord with one of these on it's left arm you're good

Agreed, the artisans of vaul stuff they have looks just as good or better.

16 Legios. Nice, that means at least one, maybe two new legios depending on how they count Legio Tritonis. Hoping for Legio Victorum at least.

Hoping beyond hope that it also comes alongside some kind of upgrade sprue or a Chaos Knight Banner or something...

Pretty good for traitor-titan players and leaves at least one more book to cover renegade banners, which we probably won't see until the new year now.

Going forward, we need a good Saturday preview announcing either a new scout titan or a knight with long range firepower and some tough armour. And certainly not with resin tax...

So no new kits to go with that, eh? How lame.

Well, technically it’ll probably come alongside the new Warmaster variant, but yeah a new class would’ve been nice.

I'm surprised GW isn't rolling out at least some corrupted armour upgrade sets or such. They might be holding them back for the next news article, but at the same time the front cover doesn't have any either.

It might be one of those things that got postponed because of Corona? We might be able to tell if the book has variant weapons and the like

This is beyond dope. I might actually buy this book.

Aetheric Tempest(Tzeentch) is cool. A titan puking on stuff(Nurgle)is interesting. The Blood(Khorne) is probably fun to play. But...where's the Slannesh one?

I'm afraid so and probably thats it for the rest of the year.

With no mention of a FW kit, I hope its not going to be "Coming soon!" for the Traitor book and then a last minute "Get your Iconoclast titan from FW this friday!", because that would really be a slap in the face for Warmaster fans.

Speaking of rubbish, how are they going to convince us to splash out on the Asterius when it arrives? Even more so if its an expensive resin kit?

At this point I'm only expecting plastic versions of things like the Banelord if there's a relaunch of the game in 2022/23. If that's not in the pipeline then we might see corrupted titans done with resin components in the same way as the Warlord-Sinister.

It could very well be exactly that, lord_blackfang; just rules and no models.

Yeah it would have been nice to preview models with it.


The other annoying takeaway is they really did make the iconoclast a "different" titan from the normal warmaster. If the end result is that you can't swap weapons between them it will be a really bizarre move.

Spoiler:




Also, this may be nitpicking, but this is terribly written, The ability is fine, but you could literally just show a weapon card, I can't actually believe someone wrote: "short range T, long range -, dice value D3, S5 and the firestorm and fusion traits."



I'm excited for the book, bit confused why slanesh doesn't get anything.

Not been confirmed whether its a GW or FW release, and we're all using our best judgement at this point to suggest that its a plastic kit.

Seems kind of obvious that GW will release models that are covered by the rules; the rules are just marketing copy to get you to buy the models.
