A user on FB just posted a few photos of the new AT titans along side some of the old space Marine models from Epic. These look pretty good!


That last picture of the Marine on the rear balcony really shows how perfectly in-scale these new Titans are!


They shouldn't be though. Titan scale is 25% bigger than epic infantry so unless epic marines were oversized scales are different

Titans were underscaled in the original Epic, for the most part. So yes it stands to reason that the new Titans will actually be more in scale according to the current "size" of models.

Epic inf was 6mm but fw went for 8mm scale. Old titans being undersized doesn't change fact 8mm scaled titan is larger than 6mm scaled titan.

Fw changed base scale from 6mm to 8mm. They flat out said so. So 6mm infantry shouldn't look proper scale there

The Titans really are super nicely poseable. The toes are part of tge feet, but apart from that it's almst like building the full-scale thing.

Really enjoyed the build, it's easy to keep almost every single piece of armor separate until the end.
You may notice a gap in the top carapace. I intentionally didn't glue it in, that way I can paint the carapace plate before final assembly.

Was hoping that with so many preview copies sent out someone would list the weapons cards in the box as the GW direct pack has 28 cards for the Warlord split across 10 weapons so it'd be great to know the quantities in the GME

I'm also curious as to the legion specific rules as that'll give us an idea as to how important those are.

I actually did, it is a couple of pages ago (page 96), also the Stratagems and Objectives a little bit later. The additional card pack is Warlord only.

Spoiler:
Based on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-yRMR_TPx0M and https://imgur.com/a/bRn55Re I compiled a list of the weapons cards in the Rules Set box (and GME as well)

Warlord

Warlord Arm - Arioch Titan Power Claw
Warlord Arm - Belicosa Volcano Cannon
Warlord Arm - Belicosa Volcano Cannon
Warlord Arm - Belicosa Volcano Cannon
Warlord Arm - Belicosa Volcano Cannon
Warlord Arm - Macro-Gatling Blaster
Warlord Arm - Mori Quake Cannon
Warlord Arm - Sunfury Plasma Annihilator

Warlord Carapace - Apocalypse Missile Launcher
Warlord Carapace - Apocalypse Missile Launchers
Warlord Carapace - Paired Gatling Blasters
Warlord Carapace - Paired Laser Blasters
Warlord Carapace - Paired Turbo Laser Destructors
Warlord Carapace - Vulcan Mega-Bolter Array

Reaver

Reaver Arm - Laser Blaster
Reaver Arm - Gatling Blaster
Reaver Arm - Melta Cannon
Reaver Arm - Reaver Titan Chainfist
Reaver Arm - Reaver Titan Power Fist
Reaver Arm - Volcano Cannon

Reaver Carapace - Apocalypse Missile Launcher
Reaver Carapace - Turbo Laser Destructor
Reaver Carapace - Vulcan Mega-Bolter
Reaver Carapace - Warp Missile Support Rack

Warhound

Warhound Arm - Inferno Gun
Warhound Arm - Plasma Blastgun
Warhound Arm - Turbo Laser Destructor
Warhound Arm - Vulcan Mega-Bolter


Similar exercise for the Stratagems & Objectives Cards, there are 24 of them. Due to light reflection on the cards, I am less confident I got all right, one is quite unreadable. This said, this would compile as follows:


24 Stratagems & Objectives Cards

Mission Objectives

Vital Cargo
Hold The Line
Engage & Destroy
Glory & Honour
Retrieval

Stratagems (aka Tricks & Tactics)

Thermal Mines
Sabotage
Outflank
Voidbreaker Field
Outflank
Noble Sacrifice
Thermal Mines (??? barely readable due to light reflection, not sure at all it is another Thermal Mines)

Ranged Support

Artillery Bombardment
Blind Barrage
Orbital Lance Strike

Battlefield Assets (for which there are models as well in both the GME and Rules Set)

Command Bastion
Communications Relay
Void Shield Relay
Plasma generator
Apocalypse Missile Strongpoint
Macro Cannon Battery

Tertiary Objectives

Cripple The Foe
A Score To Settle
Decapitating Strike


Sounds good fun and lots of possibilities



The description for the Warlord weapons card pack lists 26 cards:

- 2 carapace mounted bolter array cards;
- 2 carapace mounted paired turbo laser destructor cards;
- 2 carapace mounted paired laser blaster cards;
- 2 carapace mounted paired gatling blaster cards;
- 2 carapace mounted apocalypse missile launcher cards;
- 4 arm mounted Belicosa volcano cannon cards;
- 4 arm mounted Sunfury plasma annihilator cards;
- 2 arm mounted Mori quake cannon cards;
- 3 arm mounted Arioch Titan power claw cards;
- 3 arm mounted macro-gatling blaster cards.

as for the boxyness of the terrain, realisticly wouldn't a LOT of Imperial worlds likely use pre-fabs?

To some extent, probably, although many worlds would have plenty of access to large pools of cheap labour to put their own stamp on them, even if they're building from a prefab base structure.

I can't help feeling the terrain should seem more impressive than it does. The plain grey paintwork with no details picked out isn't helping them any... The shot a few pages back with the full table of the stuff was just so very boring.

They also suffer from looking like modular panels. Obviously that's what they are, but ideally you don't want the end result to be so blatant about it. These aren't as bad as Mantic's clipped-together cubes, but the beveled ends on the balcony railings sort of jump out.

Having said that, I'd love to see some with the railing gaps filled in and some details painted in a different color from the rest of the building... I suspect they would look much, much better.

I think these are the first sets of terrain and we can expect some sector Mechanicus style components for industrial districts. I would not be surprised to also see some "bigger" buildings, basilicanum style, to show up down the road. Otherwise there are plenty of conversion possibilities I guess.

it's possiable depends on how sucessful AT is, I think these ALONE for a city won't work, but as the main part representing hab blocks etc I think they'll be alright. then you can add a bit more awesomeness by tracking down an N scale cathedral from somewhere. One thing to consider is if buildings are destructable you don't want anything tooo elaborate as you'll be wanting something you can quickly and easily remove from the board.

Two things; old Titans were closer to 3mm scale than 6 so if anything the new ones should look better with the old infantry (33% bigger rather than 50% smaller), plus it’s easier for infantry to look in-scale with things that are too big because cathedrals.
Second, the marine doesn’t look in proper scale, just not unreasonably out of scale. That railing is supposed to be waist-high on a regular human, not shoulder high on a marine!
Edit: and that doesn’t even acknowledge his base which in scale to an epic infantryman is about an extra 8inches in height.

I agree. Curious to see how the FW epic buildings will fare next to these. I have a couple, including the cathedral, as well as some remaining sprues of the plastic ruins. I guess we'll see lots of scratch built stuff as well.

Curious to see this against an epic chaos space marine (last version), they were slightly bulkier and taller. Although I think they would still be out of scale, but unreasonably as you said.

The GME went almost instantly on Element.

I think I got one, but I wont be surprised if I get an email saying "Sorry, we didn't have enough for your order".

Wayland games are also doing it with no discount on the GME.

Seems to be selling quickly but I guess if the GME boxes was only produced in low numbers its no surprise.

Eh, just got 1 knight set, 1 warlord and 1 ruleset at 25% discount instead of the grandmaster set since it sold out and I’m not paying undiscounted for it.

Of course the ruleset might have been a waste of time if the game is fairly DOA by the time the other titans are out and I have a playable force, but oh well.

Well considering how its selling out I don't think its going to be dead on arrival - remembering that its only the core boxed set that is in limited supply right now - the rest will be made and cast up as required

There’s still an easy chance it will be for me, given I have little to no social skills and the only local store is a GW that only allows specialist games to be played on one day a week.

This is looking to be one of those more obscure play it in your basement with a circle of friends type games.

That sounds really odd for a GW store to have a policy like that - esp in the UK. Unless they've only got the one table or such (I know many have been pushed into smaller retail premises over the years

Element Games was out before 10:02 UK time I think, I checked and it was already "unavailable"
Darksphere didn't listed it

Wayland is now out since around 10:30 UK time


The collector's coin was sold out at 10:17 on GW website, it was already sold out in New Zealand and Australia when I woke up a couple of hours ago, Japan is now sold out as well

Well this is a bust, was gona pick up a copy if I could get it for £140 or less.
Goblin gaming & darksphere didn't even list it
Wayland and firestorm have it at full price (bloody scalpers)
Element games sold out inside of a minute
and the outpost website died hard.

Guess I'll be waiting six months for the reprint.

it's the quiet ones you have to look out for. Their the ones that change the world, the loud ones just take the credit for it.

More pressingly than if I can get games of it, the place I ordered from seems to have changed my order from their default shipping plan on the form to a much slower one between me checking the order and hitting confirm. Gonna have to try to get in contact with them about that.
