Looking forward most of all to the lore for some of the undercooked Legios like Interfector, Mordaxis, Magna, Vulpa, etc. Hoping for some rules buffs for Mordaxis + Tempestus + Krytos as well but it's not the end of the world if they aren't changed.

Weird way of saying thin paper, hopefully it's been updated. Real question is if it will even have the porphyrion's rules on it.

Thin paper terminals that barely hold the pips, yes. IE not the thick ones that do hold the pips.

Indeed. Thunderhawks and Fire raptors as well, plus Chalnath.


I'm excited for the Thunderhawks. I'm printing out some of the large landing pads from the Grimdark Terrain set and I'm hoping that the Thawks will fit nicely on them for my spaceport set up for AT.

Intact Thunderhawks on landing pads? What heresy is this? It's not a proper AT / Epic scale Thawk unless it's a crashed wreck objective. I'm sure it says so in the rulebook.

Jokes aside, I hope you post some pics!

Someone asked on Facebook about Warmaster weapon sprues being sold separately and got this reply from FW:

We haven't heard about one for now but if we do we will let you know.

The Facebook team have exactly one answer to questions that haven’t already been answered directly on WarCom and it’s that. They are not permitted to even admit to knowing pre-release information for unannounced products, much less give it out. I will not debate whether this is a “good” policy or not - it is what it is.

But yeah, you’re basically shaking a magic 8-ball and waiting to see if it comes up with a ninth answer.

I will! My friend is working on the landing pads, hopefully I'll have the prints in a couple of weeks.

Hi Gary,
a little statement about Adeptus Titanicus.

Whatever People tell, AT will not de discontinued. It's the best running
specialist game, even more than Bloodbowl.

I think the AT models are the absolute best GW is making right now so I always found the rumor of it getting axed hard to believe. Especially when they can so easily upscale any models they make for it to full scale resin versions. There’s still plenty of room for the game to grow, be it with variant patterns of existing titans, new titans or knights, corrupted titans and knights, or xenos titans

How much more life does Blood Bowl have in it? Surely they have to be running out of teams and concepts to release by now?

I wonder if, once they finish with old world teams, they'll move into doing some Mortal Realms ones. Stormcast and Kharadron certainly could look the part.

The obvious solution is Adeptus Titanicus teams for Blood Bowl.

I reckon Orks and Eldar are much more likely given the Horus Heresy setting and the classic factions from old Titanicus (and those are unlikely).

They did do a bit of playtesting for Orks during AT's development IIRC, just in case they ever got around to them.

However I do agree that everything is better with Tyranids.

Well, after release of the Traitor Legios book, they really have a blank slate for what they want to do next. They could keep doing campaign books, a new rule book, or any number of pet projects...

There's at least a year of "classic" teams remaining, plus (hopefully) at least one more plastic Big Guy and a boatload of resin Star Players.

Off-hand, we could do with a plastic version of the Amazon, Chaos Dwarf, High Elf, Khemri and Norse teams, ideally along with a plastic Minotaur. I'm not going to try to work out which Star Players still need a modern sculpt, even ignoring the ones introduced in the Spike! Magazine series.

Equally, the Imperial Nobility, Black Orc and Khorne teams have shown they have ideas for new teams - and as long as they add to the game, I'm all for that.

there exist plans to merge AT and AI into a Game like Epic but Covid and
the caused release backlog with all it's issues slow this down (same with
Gothic or other specialist games).

There're exist also plans in the drawer for expansion(s) to introduce
airplanes, tanks and infantry as rudimentary support options (does someone
remember that PC Game for AT?) but this is possible halted.

There’s still six “teams of legend” left that need models plus the creation of the khorne team implies that tzeentch and slaanesh teams to go with the existing Nurgle one are at least possible. Then there’s the recent Cathay fluff overhaul to consider drawing from. And that’s before they decide to get really wacky like a Zoat/fishmen team or a Fimir team or what have you. Not even touching the AoS stuff.

At first I read this and went "what?" because that seemed hard to believe. Titanicus is pretty popular-ish around my end (games aren't on the regular, but you can ask for one and get a good deal of responses), but Blood Bowl usually has at least one league going across several clubs/stores and it doesn't feel like a unique situation when I've looked elsewhere.

When I thought about it, if it is true, I do wonder if that has a lot to do with everybody buying the same models (except maybe the Psi-Titan) as everybody else. If you've no interest in starting an Ogre or Wood Elf or Imperial Noble team you've no reason to ever buy them or their peripherals, but no matter what Titan Legio you're playing (sans Audax) if you're committed to the game you're probably buying at least one of each new release.

Of course it's coming from Faeit, so the source on that is "dude trust me" and as reliable as the 4chan anon claiming Titanicus was selling so poorly it'd be taken out back next year.

I dunno, to me that sounds more like someone's wishlist. More so because it's basically an unprovable "They planned to do things, but they ain't."

Far as I recall we never heard in the past that Epic wasn't profitable; nor Warmaster. It's just that neither was profitable enough compared ot other things the company could invest in.

With GW being basically flush with cash and more acutely aware that each time they drop a game it leaves a huge vent for a 3rd party to fill and grow into. Especially today with Kickstarter and 3D printing both allowing much smaller to non-existent firms to gain access to enough resources to push into the market in a serious way.

So I could see GW of today investing into Epic and even a Warmaster style game in the future. Sure they wouldn't be as profitable as "more marines" but they leave less money on the table for the competition; bring more under the GW umbrella and GW are at a stage where they like as not really can't invest any more into marines in a sensible way. They've got the excess investment potential.
