Painting carries on with the Fellblades, but first more gaming against a fellow club member and their beautiful Krieg army

Things got bloody fast on this pretty dense table, as we both garrisoned the craters in the middle, his aircover was stuffing their faces with doughnuts at the aerodome while my terminators were dropping down fists first through his armoured units, titans struggled to find lines of fire and his line could not find the heart to regroup after first attrition started to rain in.

As always, click the pictures to see more than potatoes.
















This game is damn good. I love it.

And the Fellblades are done before the weekend games, booyah











Some of the prints had rather visible defects, but I think they worked out pretty well as battle damage. Small things like hulls slashed open have never stopped XIV before either

Great job on the Fellblades. I would have thought all battle damage was intentional. Great way to make lemonade, as it were. Onward slogs the XIV through any hardships!

I really can't believe the paintjobs on those tanks, especially seeing the € coin next to one in the last picture Amazing work!

Thanks guys!

Yeah the printer seems to have a dead pixel in it so that occasionally there are holes or weird slashes in an odd model here or there, which usually means they'll end up as fodder for my titans' bases. In this case it seemed fitting to just make use of it by having a few blackened holes or the big gash pushing up black smoke made from flock

The Basilisks are the same, I think a third or so of them have holes too. Glad we aren't some fancy Blood Angels or something, so that damage IS our bling

Those paint jobs are phenomenal for such small models, I had to keep reminding myself that these were Epic minis and not a larger scale!

Cheers Gwyn and monkeytroll

I'd love to work on a large Fellblade one day, if only for the fun of it. The design is just so nice, even if one needs to play Apocalypse to make it feel like it belongs.

Not that that's really a problem either, given Apocalypse is a pretty solid ruleset. Huh, fancy that.

I'm happy with any, if it gets played

For an actual answer though, I prefer Epic Armageddon for battalion sized engagements and upwards, while the new Apocalypse is a fun system for company level. As my Death Guard are organized in their old legion style, EpicAU's Heresy list provides the best base for that. NetEA, EpicUK and EpicAU (as well as their variations) can be played against each other without a hitch in a casual environment, while I'd probably go with EpicUK's more polished lists if I'd go to a tournament. Haven't read Epic 40k's rules, which allegedly would be the leanest for a truly gargantuan game but who knows. Armageddon is so well suited to what it wants to do that I can see myself playing it for the most part as far as 6 mm wars go. It doesn't do superheavies as well as I'd like, but hey ho, that's what Apoc and Titanicus can handle

What-ho, it's stompin' time!

Big pictures, small thumbnails, click 'em to see something.

We had a blast last weekend, playing a version of the Titandeath scenario with some 6000 points of Astorum / Defensor assailants rushing Favilla's 5000 point line. We had three relatively new players on the attacking side against me and one new guy who took control of my heavy engines while I ran aggressive light maniples and the psi-titan on one flank.





With the purported loyalists charging forwards, it did not take long before all hell was let loose and the air filled with death (purported, for they were suspiciously quick to start committing war crimes against the local miner population...).




From the very beginning, the high command of the attackers were bending over backwards to bring down the monstrosity that was Aetheris-Anathema. It was not enough that one Warlord spent the entire first half of the confrontation firing on it instead of attacking, they also ordered their aerial supports, radiation bombardment and long range missile support from the other flank to bully it before it could use its horrible magic to kill everyone and their dogs by looking at them funny, if the hate thrown its way is any indication




In the middle the attack pushed over the hill and by the highway as the open spaces exploded into furious firefights.




On the right, big guns turned into position as Hound packs stalked through the wastes.



Left flank saw a daring dash by Ruina Superborum, running faster than expected towards the advancing Astorum forces and cutting down the pointman Warhound with its fists before a torrent of volcano cannons and plasma balls tore into its body. for two rounds, it still stood defiant until finally finished by a stray shot from a fallen Reaver, still twitching as it lay on the ground punctured by the Acastus support further back. Said Acastoi had some troubles of their own, as half of their number vaporized in a sudden blast of microwave anger from the hilltop. It's triumphant roar was soon cut short though, as a beam of unreality tore through its core and it stumbled from the cliff in ruin.




In return, after two Warlords pummeled the Psi-titan down, the foremost brawler 'Lord was in return blasted apart by a trio of engines in front of it and it, too, soon collapsed from the hillside in flames.



As the lines mingled, many mushroom clouds soon rose from the field as Warhounds and knights were dying in droves, either pushing holes in the front or sacrificing themselves to protect their titan masters. Reserves were rolling in as fast as they could, a new defence on the right flank forming around the newly arrived psi-titan as it strode on the field behind the Warbringer Contemptus Mundi. The middle part was starting to buckle, as the so far untouched Defensor maniple went for the throat.



And so it went, on and on, until after six rounds and many more hours we were counting the dead. No definite breakthrough was made, well to the second dozen units had been killed on both sides by the end and as the dust settled, it seemed that the attackers had by the skin of their teeth eked a 12 point lead. On a field littered with burning wrecks and with over 100 victory points racked on both sides, such a slight margin was more akin to an ointment on a bitter draw as both forces were mauled beyond operational capability. A single felled Warhound more would have swung the situation around

Great fun was had by all, as this game is purpose built for this kind of super visual and cinematic struggles full of both heroic defiance and catastrophic chain reactions!

It was fun to finally organize a properly large game of Titanicus, the intense nature of the game lends itself well to such endeavours

Now to do the same with too many Epic armies, that would be a sight...

I'll try!

This time it's time to say hello to my little friends at the Basilisk battery. Everything looks instantly much livelier when the crew is in place.










Also a better look at the Sicarians.




I'll need to play at least 6000 points to get all those Basilisks on the field, one day...

Cheers, welcome to the thread

I should eventually get more scenery on the way too, I've been painting a dozen or so strips of 6 mm dragons' teeth and razorwire strips on the side as a way to use all excess browns from the actual models. Titanicus set needs a few bigger buildings, too

Great battle report! Very immersive. Nice edits on the photos, but what really sells it are the quality paint jobs and scale terrain. Reminds me of the fourth edition 40k when they would display more scenic images of the models.

Thanks Don! I did start my grimdark when fourth came along, maybe it stuck

Today we finished our club's "Adeptus Titanicus in a nutshell" introduction video:




Currently it's in Finnish only, I'll see if I could make English subtitles one of these days.

Thanks, youws!

With Epic gaining ever more momentum in my repertoire, it seems fitting to have another army at the ready. Something that plays way differently from the XIV but plays nicely along with my existing titans and knights.

Enter the Mechanicum.



Cleaned a few engines today while waiting for the Vanguard Miniatures infantry to arrive along with the priests, should last me a minute to finish

Also bashed a fun little Ordinatus together for that sweet sillyness amidst all the boringly effective barrages.



Quick backhand calculation says I've got maybe 11000 or so points of stuff here with the infantry, so in the same ballpark as the marines before their reinforcements get done.

With epic it's a very small leap from "I'm starting a new army" to "I'm all in" isn't it? Excited to see the Mechanicum models painted up!

"I'm all in... for another army"

Yeah, it's neither too much work or money to get a fully playable force into shape in this scale. And they look so nice, even if just sitting on the shelf.
