If I can bother you for a second - what size/scale trees did you use?

They look perfect for Epic/AT - and if you have a link to them, that would be great too!


I got my trees on eBay, dirt cheap from China...just search for N- and Z-scale railway trees. FYI, the foliage tends to flake off, so I used a matte sealer on them and that seemed to do the trick.


I'll take a look, the battlefield in a box ones lose a lot of foliage too.

They're battlefield in a box small summer woods I believe. They do the same kit in fall colours. They also have a small pine forest which seems to be the same scale.

Can't like to the specific one but its on this page https://www.flamesofwar.com/Default.aspx?tabid=287&CategoryID=13336&PageIndex=1

Third game, 1350pts. We tried out the beasts from the molech book, lots of fun.


The armigers are titan hunter infantry. Also, we've been using the equipment from white dwarf as general use wargear available to any legio to try it out. Seems decent. There's some auto takes and some weird point incentives, warlords certainly benefit the most in a lot of ways. There's some really cool stuff in there. Worth picking up the white dwarf for.

In some cases other titans can still benefit, a lot of the wargear isn't contextual to the weapon so you often pay only once but if armed accordingly both weapons may be able to benefit from a single wargear upgrade. A really simple one just lets you pre measure and its the cheapest one by far.

The Chaotic beasts pack would be a good investment, as the lesser demons could be greater demons in Titanicus scale. Give them proper swords and they'll truely be chasing the knights round the table!

And, yes, it would be nice if GW would at least include some hobby ideas - especially for scenery'n'terrain.

It's just a shame how little photography there is in the books. Like GW has deep pockets, why aren't we seeing real paint jobs and photos of cool battles.

It's like a very bare bones presentation on the hobby front, but its weird even for them given their sorta model first mandate, like codex's do a lot of show off the "beautiful citdale miniatures tm" but at seems very toned down in that department. It's weird that there are battlefield assets with no models but also no attempt to show a model anyone in the studio would use.

List for tomorrow's game. Trying out a different maniple this time. The arcus is cool, it lets the warbring treat weapons as barrage as long as one of the warhounds can draw los to the target, it also reduces the scatter of blasts. Very cool. The reaver is basically on his own, trying a different carapace weapon. The questoris are going bare bones.

Warlord fully magnetized, ready to paint. Did a test of the tyrant siege terminators, based but still gotta paint them. Started painting the ship, did a few decals. The malahgras are based, still gotta do their skin.

The little shield dudes with lances are from vanguard miniatures https://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/product-category/defeat-in-detail-6mm/cybershadows/

The terminators and armigers were printed from files on thingiverse

Some really cool stuff on there.


Automatically Appended Next Post:

Me and by buddy put together a little scenario we call Engine War. For 1000-2000 point games. The basic idea was to make a simple scenario as an entry point into the game. One of the more intimidating aspects of AT is its very historical, that's a mixed bag, you see some really cool games but the historical nature of the scenarios mean you're always having to change the titan legions, so you always have to modify a bit. The matched play stuff leaves a lot to be desired. Neither of us like the asymmetric nature of the objectives and the victory points have a tendency to sorta get away from us, in so much that there can be a lot of victory points to keep track of. It's also something I've noticed from others games, there are so many potential victory points in play, the end score always seems a bit absurd. This is also a personal taste thing, I tend to prefer most victory points being scored end game instead of "progressive". I don't mind a few secondary objectives giving progressive victory points that can't be taken away but it should be limited. I'd rather have a low scoring game where both sides fully comprehend the score and how we arrived there.

The basic focus is holding objectives, 3-5 objectives, each player after placing objectives designates one objective as "vital" which increases the victory points for holding it by 1. Both sides are also rewarded for wounding or killing the enemy's princeps seniores, getting a titan or banner of knights entirely within the enemies deployment zone. Reserves and outflank are built in as a core mechanic. We found too often that even with a lot of los blocking terrain, games were just two lines of titan clashing head on, some maneuvering came into it, but we rarely saw difficult decisions or much flanking. By allowing reserves and outflank, the hope is to shake that up a bit and add more disruption to the battle lines.

A sore point on stratagems is they aren't created equal, some are one use only, some can be used every turn. Another issue is, there is often little counter to stratagems, for example strafing run. Our solution for now without having to write more stratagems that would offer counter play like "anti air guns" to counter strafing run is to tie all battlefield and ranged support assets into the purchase of a command bastion. The basic idea is everything is being run through said bastion, if the enemy is able to take it out, they shut down your ability to call in air support or artillery. Last but not least, we added an upgrade option to 3 battlefield asset stratagems. For 1 stratagem point more you can make a macro cannon battery, armageddon missile strongpoint or command bastion "mobile". It basically allows it the ability to move 5 inches in the stratagem phase before shooting. Both of us have recently picked up some cool 6mm tanks models that work great as macro cannons or missile artillery and figuered why not. In the case of the command bastion, it usually doesn't activate in the stratagy phase but this would give it a free move to get out of harm's way or keep up pace with an attack.

So I ordered some ruins and roads from vanguard miniatures, I think they're troublemaker games. Really happy with both, honestly they went together extremely easily, I've already got the ruins dry brushed. Just primed the roads after shooting these pics. That's how much I managed to get from one set, same with the ruins, build that all out of a single set. Also got my second castle painted. The stone arch is found on amazon of all places, matched the castles well enough.

Just realised, Crablezworth, that in a few images you had a banner of two Questoris( gauntlet & chainsword ) instead of the minimum of three.

"My lord....is that...legal?"

Good news is apparently the new book has an upgrade that subtracts 2 strength from blast weapons vs the knight unit that has it, so at least they might survive a shot now lol
