So it's basically 2 kits, 1 with volcano and 1 with neutron, there's maybe a hope in hell the arm weapons will be different in each. Past that though, it being forgeworld, very little chance of optional weapons.

The other issue is, it being the first resin titan, are they at least going to come with some loyalist/traitor specific bits? (dare I get my hopes up) My guess is no, I want to be wrong though. Either way I don't know if some second head option we haven't seen or some bits would fix the ugly duckling,




I decided to make my own count as "dire wolf", here's hoping it's actually on an 80mm

That looks bloody awesome bro. Please keep up the awesome work! I love the base detail, the base usually makes or breaks a model for me.

Thanks dude, I'd have it primed already but it's like -20 sadly and I'm too lazy to prime it by hand. I'm stoked to get more pics of it up, really hoping we see the rules/terminal soon. I'm worried it's going to be higher armour based on the rumours and this one might need more armour.

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

Well, either something will be announced this weekend, or that's a bit of a troll job. I don't think the social media team is clued into or allowed to even hint about longer-range releases. My bet is that they're having some fun with people, but we'll see.

Thing is “something epic” doesn’t necessarily mean “something Epic” if you get my meaning… they have regularly declared various things to be epic battles/kits/events before.

The quip pretty clearly references Epic, the game.

However, I would chalk it up to just trolling. I can't imagine the community them even knowing if such a project existed, let alone having the green light to tease it in random social media comments.

That's that is also annoying, forgeworld doesn't really speak to "options or extra bits" which is already isn't a great fit for AT, exemplified by the issues with the armigers, having to buy 3 sets just to get the weapons loadouts you want for a legal unit. But the first issue I'm assuming is it being fw, it won't be able to explicitly traitor or loyalist. Meaning no optional bit like, literally all the other titans come with on sprue. Add to that, no thick card option for it, like with the psi titan and also both warmasters. It just feels like AT is the game GW forgot in the car on a hot day.

For all we know, Epic could truly just be an adjective to describe the next wave of Primaris releases.

A single word shouldn't generate this much hype, no matter how tongue-in-cheek it appears.

Those armigers were the final nail in the titanicus coffin and GW needs to pull their finger out if they want my continued custom. Same goes for Kill Team, which I started playing alongside Titanicus back in late 2018 and had a high opinion of back then...

They capitalized the E in Epic, which to me means they're using it as a proper noun rather than an adjective. However I will admit that GWs understanding of English hasn't always matched mine

Just combine the stuff from Battlebling with the existing hulls. Terrain from Grimdark Terrain. Practically done then!

On an Express Elevator to Hell!!

I've always thought GW wouldn't revisit Epic, just because I can't imagine them handling the sheer number of SKUs that it could generate (or at least to be able to be able to cover the game properly).

But, maybe a small Horus Heresy themed boxset or something like that? Just marines, rhinos, land raiders - that might be achievable, and could probably be done on a sprue.

The next question is whether they would produce a new ruleset, use one of the existing ones, or use them as some sort of addition to AT (although not sure how well that would fit).

Alternatively, it might be nothing at all to do with any of those things!

Infantry fit just fine into AT. They’re just size 0, armour 0 and die by the score any time a Titan looks at them, as is right and proper.
Really you just need to introduce infantry rules like moving through terrain titans can’t cross, massive cover bonuses, and boarding/sabotage attacks. Plus a bunch of strength 5/6 heavy weapons to keep the big lads honest.

Yeah, it would be so cool to field a proper Tyranid swarm but as you said the possibility for Epic is next to non existent.

While achievable, I don't think see that as satisfying...anyone.

The next question is whether they would produce a new ruleset, use one of the existing ones, or use them as some sort of addition to AT (although not sure how well that would fit).


AT does a great job of representing Titan battles and Titan management. I'm pretty sure GW is wise enough not to cram more non-Titan stuff into it and bork it up. Just because you can represent something within the AT system doesn't mean that it doesn't distort gameplay. Look at Knight Households...even those are kind of an odd fit. I would think that any future Epic release would be its own system and one that pulls from past editions of Epic. While it was decades ago, I'm sure the ghost of Epic 40K still haunts their halls as a cautionary tale...
