Defence of Kado was supposed to be one of the campaign books. Wonder if this is filler ahead of some sort of re-launch or change?

It definitely looks like content for a campaign book that's been dropped.

Several free download scenarios showed up for HH before the relaunch was announced, so fingers crossed...

Indeed. Some highlights from the missions - one scenario has off table support from an Imperator and another is all corrupted Titans V all Psi-Titans. That'd be utter chaos

Right, a more detailed read of the FAQ is slightly baffling.

Ferrox maniple got clarified to depend on the attacking titan's Scale. Slight nerf which doesn't really change anything, but is still amusing considering the maniple's own bracketed text uses a Warlord as an example, a titan not usually found in it

Apparently Blast weapons with Carapace trait can now fire at targets too close to them, placing the template at the Scale range, despite Carapace trait's wording saying that smaller targets in the dead angle cannot be targeted (thus breaking the attacking sequence before anything gets fired anyway). While kinda thematic, I still wonder who let this through?

Volkite and Vortex changes are still good and the mission pack looks fun.

Uh, last time I checked you declared targets before checking range? Because you aren’t allowed to check range arbitrarily without specific wargear.

That doesn't matter. The point is that the Carapace rule states explicitly that a smaller Scale unit cannot be attacked. If you choose the enemy as a target, measure range and discover that whoopsie, it is indeed too close to be shot, by the text of Carapce trait there is no attack at all. This FAQ now implies that Blast weapons actually can, which is odd, because it was previously impossible at all. Not a big deal given the low number of such weapons, but another example of AT errata putting out bits that contradict the body of the rules text, like the Blasts scattering at max range did.

So it is an errata, which by nature are changing rules. Not just an FAQ clearing up something that was ambiguous before, but an actual rule change.

I always assumed the rule was based on the firer, hadn't realised that could be interpreted two ways. Guessing the Warlord is mentioned there to clarify any Legio rules that allow swapping out titans, like Krytos.

Amusingly I got the email about Dire Wolves coming back into stock and ordered one just minutes before this article went up. Might have picked up some volkite weapons if I'd seen it earlier.

Incredibly happy about the change to volkite, really wish they would have just had the updated cards in the faq because it's hard enough to find a good copy of the original card let alone pretend they'll update the one's in stock. Vortex change is good too, limiting it to per maniple and cutting the dice in half will help a lot of people not have heart attacks when someone uses one.

The campaign thing, meh, seems very dependent on certain models like multiple psi titans/corrupted titans. I think it would be more interesting to actually see photos of the scenarios in all honesty.

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

Yeah, it was supposed to be 'next' at one point, but other books jumped ahead of it. At this point it's not too surprising that it was gakcanned.

Still not sure if the Volkite Eradicator is worth it, but it's definitely more interesting with the changes and will give it a try.

Definitely in a twilight era of the game.

Going by the original game, back in the late 80s, I'm assuming that Adeptus Titanicus will head towards infantry & tanks( for better or worse ), a logo change to coincide with its sister game, and possibly Eldar titans & knights a bit further on.

I reckon we should hear something soon, ready for release in August.

New edition in August seems like a bold prediction to me.

August will be the 4th anniversary of AT'18. If we've not heard of anything by then - no new releases at all - then I would write the game off.

We just got a new Titan release. It's not a plastic kit, but neither are a lot of releases for the other specialist games.

Until I receive information to the contrary, I'm going to assume the studio will do what they've said they'll do, and not what the internet said they'll do.

We've also just passed the 2 year anniversary of release schedules being turned completely upsidedown for the following ~18 months.

Necromunda just got a 'reboot' boxed game four and a half years after the original, with many previewed things still to release. Let's chill out a bit on the doomsaying.

Yeah, personally I think the fact that they're updating FAQs and tinkering with weapon profiles are encouraging signs that they aren't ready to give up all support for the game. Let's see what happens.

Nope. Per the FW site, my order is still pending. It looks like folks in the UK are getting theirs...? My last order with FW (Psi-Titan) took 3-4 weeks to arrive, IIRC. So I think it's just going to arrive whenever it arrives.

I don't think you'll see anything in terms of a new edition/reboot until next year, we got a while yet.



Good news is I've sampled as best I could the volkite cards and edited them to update them in line with the new faq. They're not pretty but they're functional enough.

Spoiler:



So beam is something that, perhaps a lot of AT players haven't encountered until likely now or soon. It was introduced on the psi titan's main weapon, the problem with beam is its a very long rule that isn't very well written. It's a USR basically that's not in the main rulebook and its interactions with the targeting rules from the main rulebook and the terrain rules is a bit wonky to say the least. The rule does say to draw a 1mm line from the weapon to the targets base and it has to touch/cross the targets base but that;s also weird because that's not necessarily the targets body itself and for titans on oval bases you can have situation where you can draw the line over the small piece of base sticking it. its very bizarre.


Spoiler:



This isn't going to be a massive issue in that volkites are only 20 inches so I tried my best to depict a skewed but possible scenario, skewed only in that the "civitas" buildings here are all quite low, like 1 level enough to block a warhounds knees at most low but it gets the point across. GW didn't specify even what type of terrain for the beam rule just terrain, so firing across or at a target in area terrain like a pond or lake or swamp somehow affects how many dice you get and ability to do targeted attacks, its very wonky.

November is the absolute earliest I'd expect to see anything, as that's the traditional big specialist games release spot to get them on Christmas lists. However I'm definitely not betting on that, given how much new content is coming for HH and Necromunda. Not to mention we know there will be several major AOS & 40K releases to fit in before the end of this year.

2023 does seem more likely for any major news.

I wish they at least had pics to go along with these, be cool to see all the world building in terms of the board/terrain.

HH seems like it will be holding the spotlight a lot for the next while.

The HH video did have quite a bit of focus on warlord titans, and some of the new box art shows off warmasters and warlords

The Warlords certainly got their moment in the spotlight in that trailer.

Yeah, GW/FW's attention to Specialist Games has always gone in fits and starts even before COVID tossing a wrench into things.

A break in the schedule is not a bad thing from time to time.

As for Defense of Kado, nothing says we won't see it at some point in the future. They'll start with books again at some point...

Knowing GW, in a few months we will see a new big box set with like 2 reavers, 2 war hounds, some knights, and 2 new rapier scouts that will be box locked for a while

I don't think we'll see another starter or anything but there's still probably a few more models on the horizon. New starter seems like a relaunch/new edition/next year sorta thing imo.

Last year HH and Necromunda got mostly resin releases with some token plastic kits.

For this year we're likely in the same position. I doubt we'll see much beyond another resin model / weapon options. A small plastic (edit: Rapier) kit would be neat. Perhaps they could get a pair of them into an Acastus-style sprue with arm weapon options interchangeable with the Dire Wolf...

A dual scale 7 kit would be cool, even if it was 100$ it could probably be made to work provided they actually put in an effort like the dire wolf rules.
