Terminals wise, I'm very disappointed we didn't get an app for tablets.

Could even have included warning noises when you've asked too much of your reactor! Even gif style animations to show weapon locations on fire.

For shame.

That sounds awesome!

Hmm. Given the time, I'd fancy banging out such an app for Android, but I have so much else going on right now. I suppose a Knight Household app could be a more manageable project, with Titans handled with physical terminals.

Didn't they say they would do an app, or was it just "on the cards"?

Very interesting point.

Sound would be intruding too much on the tabletop experience( players enjoy using their imagination, and some may want a break from computers ), but light animations wouldn't harm it - such as a slow, orange glow for medium damage and then a more lively red glow for when critical.

The odd reflection of light for usable components could be useful as an indication that the player can interact with them.

for a little indy dev team, i think it looks very good.

my point was, a tabletop game should not have to rely on a electronical devise for game immersion. a tool for rules yes, but that is where it should stop.

It's a cool alternative they should consider as an addon but not require. Keeping an app working through multiple iterations of iOS or Android is hard and expensive - when it's released half assed and requiring an Internet connection (e.g. Xwing ) it's a miserable experience.

That’s all I’m suggesting alternative, not a replacement

We’ve seen what happens when you tie your game into a £1,000 electronic widget....it crashed and burned.

The true magic is making the app not just a soundboard or wound tracker but an Augmented Reality (AR) experience. Imagine RFID chips under your bases (centered exactly) which relay information to an iPad so that when you sweep the iPad’s camera over the table you see distance, wound, and damage percentage data as overlay all computed through the chips. You could have real time firing effects, explosions, and combat resolution rules explained so you don’t have to calculate morale modifiers.

All of this would be optional but imagine how it would both draw younger players and make some of the more esoteric rules/modifiers easier? Battletech, given its hex based nature, would be a perfect game to start AR applications with.

An interesting idea. If Hololens technology becomes small enough to wear as ordinary glasses(or close enough), it would be magnificent. There are a lot of advances been made in the field of AR/VR and good times are coming!

Gents.

I am unhappy.

Just swung by Element's website to check out what Titanicus goodies they've got in stock. Turns out, GW are now restricting sales of the Battlegroup to their own website only.

This is a pain. See, normally I buy from my local GW store - support your local gun slinger, like. But since they don't stock AT or Necromunda (not even release day splash stock), I've instead, sensibly, availed myself of online retailers, and secured a saucy discount.

I mean, this is going to stop me playing the game, but it just seems rude.

Hence, I am unhappy.

Just get third party models instead...or go 3mm! :p

But all craziness aside, that is a very lame policy, with sad..sad consequences. :(

Your local GW will order AT stock in for you. It arrives sometime during Thursday, so I pick up Friday. I've done this for the weapon sprues and card sets. Although thats the UK norm.

As for the Battlegroup I'd say its being sold on their site for the time being due to low stock. This has happened before with Titancius items on Weyland including the battlegroup. I'd suggest waiting a bit.

Bit of an event happened today...

Was looking for upcoming events in relation to showcasing new AT stuff, but the search came up with a Titanicus tournament here - where I live and this Saturday! Turns out it was a games shop that is 15 minutes drive and so I decided to check it out...

The shop is Alpha Games and was greeted by a gentleman who went by the name of Chris and he was a smashing host. Showed me around( 40K Reaver on the shelf! With hounds! ) and let me even have a butchers at an AT battleforce - the first time I got to see the Warlord in all its glory - and some of the models had epic lander raiders, rhinos and marines.

Quite surprised to see he kept a full stock of Titanicus save for the Acastus Terminals(and battlegroup). I nearly bought something, but I've spent my budget for the month(playing AoS now..), and had to literally tear myself away. Alpha Games has a 10% discount on GW stock and really felt like picking up the traitor dice...oohhhh I should have done it! For the record, both sets are very nice indeed.

Enjoyed the visit and its nice to know there's a local Titanicus store.

Sorry. Should’ve said ‘this is NOT going to stop me playing the game’.

But still a bit cheeky.

Yet another re-factoring of the Knight Household...

Primary Lance:

3x Questoris( Gauntlets & Chainswords, 3 Rocket pods, 3 Melta guns )
1x Porphyrion( Twin lascannons )
1x Porphyrion( Twin lascannons )

Support:

Warhound( dual inferno cannons )
3x Questoris( Chainswords + the three main gun types )

...the original three questoris are now back as support for the first battlegroup(Titans). I suspect that the Q's upgrade sprue will be released shortly, and I'm leaving room in points for another Cerastus variant, which will probably see release Christmas 2023....

Bit of dark tone wash for the Acastus, the local tournament was postponed and I donated a load of AT decal sheets to the same store.

Hey all, some great stuff here.

I'm getting into AT with some Imperial titans, but decided to also do some counts as units as well.

Since the only thing cooler than giant robots with guns, is giant dinosaurs with guns, I decided to convert up some exodite 'titans'.

Mostly they're going to be kitbashed from stuff I have or 3d models I find on thingiverse.

Currently my Megadon (warlord titan), is part way together, based on a combination of various dragons and dinosaurs I found. Having some trouble merging the mesh, so will see how I go.

Assembled my Warp Missile today.

What’s nice is that the missile sits on the launcher using a peg, so you can easily remove it once fired. No need to magnetise, which is nice.

Group shot of my Legio Suturvora titans and knights. Also working (more slowly) on a Legio Crucis force so that I can provide models for friends.

Still in the painting stage, trying to figure out the edgings. Titans are primed black and airbrushed Vallejo Black Grey Air. Knights were done with contrast Fleshtearers and originally with contrast grey, but that got replaced with painted Black Grey. The contrast was too light and washed out the edging on the knights.

Thanks. Virtual kitbashing is certainly cheaper than physical kitbashing...

Here's where I'm up to on the megadon. I'm thinking of putting some shin armour on him, and some chest plates. Maybe a chanfron with a large spirit stone to show that the megadon is psychically controlled by a handler in the howdah.

What do you think about a butt flap with aft guns pointing backwards?

Longer tail curved back onto the base with point defense guns IMO.

Love the flames! I was wondering what flesh tearers looks like, I haven’t opened my bottle yet.

In person, it’s much more saturated and dark. For some reason, the lighting in the pictures makes it look very red and bright. So I wouldn’t go by these photos.

Will see what I can do. The tail I'm using is pretty stubby, so trying to retain the look and making it longer might be difficult.

I'm using an Ender 3 at the moment and an anycubic photon just came in the mail. I'll be printing bits of these in both depending on the detail level I need

Damn it I want a photon. I have to settle for an FDM printer that dribbles more than a point guard.

They don't look too bad. I've found that if you spray them with a car body primer as an undercoat, it can fill in some of the rough lines the FDM produces.

The pics below are of AT scaled warhound printed on my ender 3 with cheap filament at 0.1mm layer height. once primed even the small amount of ridging will disappear.

Payday tomorrow! WOOOOO!

Question is....do I invest in a fourth Reaver? Or a further Battlegroup?
