No, not the big shooty tail At The top, the little waggy tail at the back in line with he leg joints. So cute

Ah, can't take credit for that one sadly, was following the instructions on that one

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

Board for the psi titan vs psi titan game. It's funny that we ended up playing this the same day the news about the traitor book dropped. So this might be the last time the tiger eyes run a psi titan now that corrupted rules will soon be out. I sort of resigned myself to the fact that because we'll both of a psi titan and the main weapon with its 120 inch beam with its auto hitting and not having to care about cover that trying to get bigger los blockers than normal into the mix would probably just slow things down. In most game, weapons max range bands tend to play a big factor in how both sides maneuver, but once you've got weapons with ranges of like 48 or more, the reality is you can just sorta sit there a lot of the time. I actually think for all its flaws the titanicus game on steam actually does a decent job with pathing and los blocking. What I mean is, the topography basically has "cliffs" or just elevated terrain the titans often can't move over, but on top there will be gothic buildings, and there's still enough buildings and smaller things like landing pads to reinforcer the scale but most of what dictates where titans can go is the "topography". There's also the problem that without some agreement, "blocking terrain" isn't that blocking because titans can step over it, which often leads to absurd stuff. We tend to play all the citivas buildings as impassable and a lot of the smaller elements as destructible like the little shanty's and cars and baes with palm trees on them. I think I need more terrain like the "butes" I have for the badlands board.

I feel like with buildings, probably none should fully block a warlord or warmaster without being very center weighted, because at that point they're basically functioning as a small mountain/hill/hive stack. What I've done so far with the grim dark and civitas terrain is basically build stuff that would block perhaps questoris knights entirely and almost up a warhound or in some cases block a warhound entirely. I think a lot of this too is wanting the larger titans to really feel big on the battlefield and if every building or tree is taller than them it can sorta eat away at the immersion. I wanted to add roads to this but the truth is as much as they add visually, they add nothing to the game in terms of how we play and they detract because they tend to slide around and get out of alignment, so they can actually make a nice board looks worse over the course of the game if we're not constantly fixing them, one thing I wanted for this board was the ability to actually slide out titans around on the nice smooth battle mat surface without constantly have to pick up the model and place it on roads. At least with a lot of the little details, we're meant to just scoop them up when a titan stomps a path over/through them and you get to really see the board change from the start to the end and not just from titan movement, also from blast weapons scattering and toasting cars or gas stations or little huts (or erotic cake stores lol).

This board probably should have some of the big castles, but as I said earlier, as much balance as that may bring it, it would also likely extend the length of a pretty large game (2500 points) where both sides will be fielding a psi titan and 7+ other units. The punishing reality of something like the psi titans main weapon is that it has basically unlimited range, hits automatically, goes through void shields and it also has psychic powers like etheric tempest where it can just pick a point on the battlefield and automatically hit every unit within 3 inches of that point. Add to that if one side keeps the opus for a few turns in a row, it's got the top of the turn to be a real pain in the butt and because it circumvents so many protections that titans usually have like cover and void shields, the only safety you have is being completely out of los. And that's a bigger and bigger "ask" or expectation in a game about robots so big they tower over the battlefield.

So anyway, the psi titans are going to have a field day in terms of target priority but at least both sides will have one

Nice board. For some reason, it’s reminding me of some Command and Conquer maps!

It's impossible I find to play and document, did the psi titan game yesterday and I only managed to get about 20 pictures

Soon hopefully, my buddy finally got more resin but the bottom of the printer, some part of the tub needs replacing.

I wanna try and make a pub. Plan is to print the free sampler first to bang out scale, to my eye they're aprox 8mm, I wanna go 25% smaller to 6mm and see how they hold up. So gonna do the guy with the bottle at both scales, and the servitor from the kit i got.



I really like the dude with the with ventilation units who looks like he's doing maintenance. I love the gotta collect them all vibe too, they're like lego mini figuers

Definitely wanna try one of the shuttles too.

Just saw the lander now, amazing!

I was "nodding" to a very popular C&C tune...




...which I've only just realised, after all these years, its actually "Just do it up!".

This is gonna be awesome! I should make some 6mm/8mm scaled signs/billboards.

There will be plenty of these fellas released in the coming months.

Signs would be nice




I managed to get 16 pictures during the game, tells you how hard it is to play and document at the same time. Awesome game, got pretty much tabled by the tiger eyes. The king in yellow put the kill shot into my psi titan and it went kaboom.

Count as knight styrix's. Tried my best to fill out the bases to give them a bit more height, didn't quite get them as tall as I would have liked except for the one on the coil. Took some shots next to the count as cerastus which are about the right height and you can see they're mostly a bit too short, ah well. Going to run them as having dual hekaton siege claws, basically just imagining it as a short ranged cutting laser shot from their eyes.

I've got a feeling you might be able to put something like that together using some of Troublemaker Games' STLs (LINK) and some other bits.

More Titanicus scaled mining equipment would be pretty sweet!
