The occasional third party post is fine.

It's just very easy for third party discussion to overwhelm the thread since they release at a rate that far outpaces GW. That gets very annoying for people who follow this thread to stay up to date with official releases.This thread shouldn't be page after page of third party discussion.

I agree, the only place I can find games of AT once in awhile is the Warhammer store. Third party stuff, especially entire models, is literally of zero interest for me. I wish those posts would be kept to their specific thread that was made solely for that purpose. However it seems like a lost cause as the release pace of official GW stuff is glacial.

It's not just about that Titan being third-party. It's not part of the actual game...there are no GW rules for it. It's not the same case as, say, the old Chapterhouse Tervigons. I don't understand how the GW AT news thread -- per the thread title -- should ever be cluttered up with posts about third-party miniatures that require homebrew rules. Makes zero sense.

So consider we’re keeping this thread alive, how about some wishlisting?

I for one would love to see the Carnivore class battle Titan, whatever that might be! Oh and of course the Rapier!

Right now my wish list for AT is simple - more models but no more Imperial models.

I really want the game to move out of its mirror-match situation. Chaos titans, Warped titans, Greater demons, Xenos - these are the things we should be hoping for. Something that puts something different and new down on the table opposing the Imperials.

Chaos could indeed be a good start, from upgrade bits to daemons…yes, we want a model for the Titan sized Daemon Behemoth

Wishlisting, I'd go for a 2 pack of Rapiers, a non Nemesis version of the Warbringer, and a new weapon sprue for each of the current titans to bring the resin weapon sets into plastic. And a new terrain set for miniature versions of the wall of martyrs and bastions.

I would love xenos titans, Eldar and Orks would be perfect. However, it would require 4-5 kits for each one. I just don't see them doing that when we're only getting a few kits each year for the game as a whole. Hopefully it's because they're hard at work on Epic in the background and I'll actually get to play with my titans some day.

I kind of wonder if the long gap might be because FW is using up production and mould slots to get a glut of chaos/xenos titans ready for a steady release.

I do agree, the big issue with Imperials having so many releases is that any force going against them will need a fairly chunky first wave to stand a good chance. That or broken rules for a time that make them overpowered until more models can fill the gaps in the roster.


But yeah I feel like AT has done really well with mirror match armies; with Chaos and Xenos being the next logical step for the game.

Gargants are fairly easy to get right.

Kind of slow, unreliable on Orders, lots of slightly subpar guns by direct comparison? But bloody difficult to actually stop. No easy kills. Make them something you really, really need to grind down.

Eldar? Warhound type manoeuvrability, with relatively few, but pretty potent weapons.

Tyranids? Really good repair rolls to represent enhanced regeneration.

Fed up of Scalpers? But still want your Exclusives? Why not join us?

The best thing is most Xenos would also see brand new things too. And we'd actually get to play with them in multiples cause of the scale.

I'd love to see different ork clan mechs; or even some super ancient Eldar titans that perhaps look very different to their modern designs - something from the true ancient times unearthed to deal with the rising threats.

More Canoptek machines; more Tyranids; more everything!

I concur with what others have said. As cool as this is (and it is cool!) it's not a GW AT release and so should go in a different thread.

This thread was over 350 pages before someone said that should happen. Many disagreed (including me). I'm never going to tell anyone what they can and can't post and where they can and can't post, and I'll also continue posting the interesting AT stuff that I find in this thread.

Those would probably be the first two, and Orks should be pretty easy to get right, as others have said. They have Titan/Knight classes that roughly match up to Imperials (Great Gargant, Gargant, Stompas, Morkanauts/Gorkanauts, and the rules wouldn't have to be funky. Probably along the lines of fewer shields, more structure points, more gunz but less accurate, etc. Shouldn't be that hard to fit in and balance.

I know what you're saying about 4 kits -- it seems like a lot, but that's about what AT had in its first 3 months. I think if xenos ever happens, it's going to be a game relaunch of sorts with a big starter box, etc. similar to the original launch. Hell, FW could do their resin thing and make some extra bits to make a Mekboy Gargant, bring it to 5 kits.

I think Eldar would be a bigger challenge from a rules perspective, as the designers would almost certainly look to make them very fast and harder to hit. And to me those kinds of qualities would be trickier to balance.

I still think we'll get Rapiers in plastic at least before any of that happens. I'm biased about it, but I just don't believe they would have namedropped them this much only to never release the kit. And we just got the Dire Wolf in resin kinda from out of nowhere. Feels like that would have been the Rapier if they had no intention of producing them in plastic.

If GW were to start with Xenos Titans, they'd have to stick to one race to keep things simple and (hopefully) balanced.

One or the other between Eldar or Orks.

Only if sales and interest warranted could I see them eventually doing a second Xeno race.

Unless AT got a resource boost and could release things faster.

I’d be perfectly happy if if we get Xenos titans, but I also don’t think it’s something the game actually needs. It works well in the scope it’s in, and there are plenty of releases still with all the titans mentioned in the background. Also the game is (relatively, for a GW game) pretty well balanced, and I don’t know if I trust them to keep that when adding lots of different factions. I don’t think every game needs to have a scope as big as 40k - and they barely support that scope there with all the resources that gets.

The FAQ mentions titans of scale 7( inclusive, higher and lower ), and it seems that a titan is only a "scout" as far as scale 6. So a scale 7 battle titan is a possibility...

Renegade knight banners are still yet to be covered in a future expansion. I'd imagine that such a book would be an ideal time to release a knight force bundle, as we saw with the titans last year.

Also, the Acastus terminal pack could be revised if another GW knight is released. One could visualise a new pack with 3 Dominus terminals and then 2 for the Porphyrion( 1 for the senechal's banner, 1 for support ). There's also a component option for the Helios carapace weapon, so with an updated terminal there is the opportunity to add rules for that also. If there is a knight bundle then like the previous titan bundle, included Porphyrions would have their slim terminals and I'd imagine they'd have those updated too...

And you're complaining about it, which literally renders your entire point not only useless but moot because a complaint is also, in fact, not gw related "bespoke" news, fren.

So we have a few main topics in this thread:
1) rumours and promotion of third party stuff
2) wishlisting stuff for Titanicus
3) fear mongering that GW is gonna kill off the game
4) complaining that people post all sorts of other stuff but any real Titanicus rumours
5) …
6) …
7) …
8) …
9) …
10) some actual Titanicus rumours

To answer the question as to what can be posted in this thread, Rule #2 is stay on topic. The topic is GW's AT releases. Not 3rd party releases, if you want to post about other companies AT compatible releases there is a separate thread for that, if you wish to discuss other aspects of the game then there is a whole separate sub forum for that. If you don't have anything to post about N&R for AT then simply to do not post in this thread. Is that clear enough?
