Looks great but doesn't even follow it's own wyswyg based on the terminal, I like the little volkites don't get me wrong, but they're not lascannons, nor autocannons. So unless they're also releasing updated terminals, which honestly hope they do, bit confused.



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

The Mechanicus styled knights look so much better in AT scale than in 40k scale.

I’m hoping that as well. This is as good an opportunity as any, but this is GW so who knows...

Yeah, had a strong feeling the Asterius would be a FW kit and now expecting a revised terminal.

So long as that terminal doesn't include the idiotic word "auxiliary" then it should be a good choice for those knight players willing to pay the resin tax.

It's been really the only terminal with outdated points, the fact that they're stilling selling the card ones in boxes of 5 is depraved even for GW. So they really do owe the players an update, especially if they're going to change weapons wyswyg-wise, not to mention the fact that the asterius is even more broken than the porhpyrion. I have one painted and still haven' mustered the strength to run one because I only get about a game a month in and they're just too damn good. Only reason I don't feel as bad about the porphyrions is both myself and opponent have ones we can both field. So here's hoping they don't just update the points but maybe take the weapons down a notch. Even if they cut both main weapons in half in terms of how many blasts they can put out they'd still be very good units, still long range 360 reliable shooting.

Could also see it simply as fw trying their best to make it like the 28mm scale model without even remembering the autocannon/lascannon thing. It looks to me like it will be a hybrid plastic kit, which likely means 2 of them per set. So maybe a new paper terminal, honestly don't even want to get my hopes up seeing as they said volkites would come with cards and it was the back of the blister back and you had to cut it out...

Hard to say, but I'm expecting a 100% resin kit at £40 for a single Asterius.

I forgot they were on separate sprues so it's likely this sprue plus resin parts

Spoiler:




Could be all resin tho, definitely different plates on the legs

Can't really get excited for knights anymore, although the model is nice - hopefully Traitor Legions drops soon.

Well, it would be nice if it can reduce the price. It wouldn't be any good to me, but I know a lot of players such as yourself who are interested.

Looks all resin. The toes and hip cables are different, and those are the most likely to have been reused plastic.

Hopefully new cards with a removal of blast on the guns.

Yeah, Knights don't move the needle for me anymore either. But I'm happy for the people who are happy about it.

I think I would have liked that design better if its arm weapons would have been mounted in the same way as the Porphyrion.

I kinda like how they hang down, it's like they're too dangerous to be super closets the chassis.


But they really need to introduce more tweener Titans. WTF are my rapiers, or better question yet where's CORRUPTED titans?

With Asterius out, AT is officially out of fw models to copy, bar xenos/chaos.

The Asterius is the only knight to be released since last November, and we've been waiting for it since mid 2019 - two years ago. Thats a very long time for such a small model.

Its definitely high time we saw the chaos warhound and reaver models.

Imma be honest, i think this game is on the way out, GW doesn't seem to be willing to make any Chaos models or expand into Xenos, and there isn't really much way to go forward without those.

Well...worst case scenario they can still milk out the GW models.

Questoris pattern:
Knight Perceptor
Knight Desecrator*
Knight Rampager*

*I know these are both Chaos types, but perhaps we'll see the laser weapon from the Desecrator on the loyalists, or perhaps the type of legs of the Chaos knights on the Loyalists. Or even more controversial: CHAOS KNIGHTS IN AT18!!!

Dominus pattern:
Knight Castellan
Knight Valiant

Armiger pattern:
Knight Warglaive
Knight Helverin
Knight Moirax**

**The Knight Moirax is a FW model.

Nah, there are still models they mentioned that were part of the original design plan they can do. The Scout Titan smaller than the Warhound (probably the oft mentioned Rapier), the Titan sized in between the Warhound and Reaver, and the plain non-corrupted versions of the old Slaneeshi Knights.

Plus there are several other classes of Titan mentioned in Heresy fluff they could produce, beyond the inbetween size models.

And the Dominus class Knights.

Plenty of stuff to produce before thinking about Xenos titans

I think they will definitely do some Chaos Titans at some point though, as they did appear in numbers at the Siege.

I still think that if we get plastic Chaos titans it'll be via a new game box / AT relaunch. It would be a terrible way to manage releases if we had to wait 3-6 months between Chaos Warlord > Chaos Reaver > Chaos Warhound. At the minimum, a core of updated models need be available all at once so players can build a maniple with them.

GW will also want any Loyalist-only players who can't use the new models to start a Traitor maniple, and the best way to encourage that is via a discounted box.

I dunno, I have always assumed that chaos titans and knights would be resin/resin upgrade kits to plastic titans/knights.

A plastic upgrade sprue makes sense, maybe two given how the armour plates are laid out on their own sprue.

I always assumed that Chaos would be a big new starter box with a big fanfare, marketing and such. It's a huge addition and change from the civil war of mirror forces to one where you start to see chaos corrupted titans.

It's also where I would indeed expect to see several new models for Chaos launched at once. Because at that stage your civil war players who want to play Chaos won't want one Corrupted titan they will want a whole manifold force of them to use.

So at least seeing a Warlord, Reaver, Knight core and then expanding from there.

That might likely be happening eventually! But I wouldn't be surprised if FW will be doing the Chaotic upgrade kits.

I'd probably place my money on that if I had to bet. From the rules hints we've seen about base mutations and additional mutations, it sounds like it'll be about 'upgrading' existing chassis. Resin upgrade parts would fit perfectly in that plan. But plastic upgrade sprues are certainly possible. What seems very unlikely are unique plastic Banelord kits and such...at least anything more than a plastic Warlord or whatever with an extra sprue or resin parts thrown in. And they still have more base chassis to release anyway, as others have said.
