Who would buy WEAPON first? I could see buying body without weapon but weapon without body seems...waste. Can't even use it for anything unlike body.

I see a Psi Titan upgrade in the future. They used to have a mini in AT. Even mentioned in last ed. BrB.

I think the psy-titan is a Warlord variant. It has rules in one of the FW HH books. Is called a Warlord-Sinestra or something.

That would be unlikely. New titan is cross between reaver and warlord with warlord grade weapons on carapace. Support missile is at least currently reaver weapon. Warlord might have had support missile long time ago but not ATM. So I would be looking more of what weapons warlords carry now to see possibilities. Obvious ones being sunfury plasma and bellicosa volcano cannon plus possibility macro gatling blaster.

That missile would need to be whole new type of missile which for some reason reaver cannot carry.

To be fair, the simple option would just be extra vortex missiles. So instead of one, have a rack of two or three.

do people want to take bets when they will make emperor titans? still not happy with the scale of them. the books, etc (some) indicate that titans vary in size, and at warhammer world, the siege of terra have warlords that better fit the scale of the artwork...

Based on what someone said at an open day. It's not in print, so they can easily change their mind if someone sculpts something cool.

Make the Vortex missile Warlord-only. done. They've only done stats for one missile out of the nine from the original background, so plenty of room to change something.

There's bound to be people who want a titan but can't really afford the whole thing so buy it in bits

and once they've bought one bit they're committed to getting the rest as they've got money invested

so selling the gun by itself helps GW (eventually) sell the titan to go with it


Just like in the last 3 years we saw plenty of regular gamers being able to afford krieg armies worth 7-8K £ everywhere, I don't think people who don't have the money would buy their titans at GW/FW.
Also I don't think buying Maserati wheels and seats means you HAVE to buy the whole car now since you already invested 10%.. seems more like a waste.

Or just rack of 2-3 missiles instead of a single shot version. And instead of the ammo hoppers, give it a sensor/comm array back there.

This is the way it has been represented most recently in BL books - essentially a Warlord with special weapons.

FW had said they are bringing these to AT18, so we'll see how they handle it.

I'd like to see the armor plating get some special treatment as well.

I think the psi-titan will turn up once we start getting proper Chaos titans; give it something appropriate to fight.

Having just read the HH short story about a psi-titan they could certainly be interesting in game, though would seem to need a fair few special rules to get close to the fluff.

Oh they're horrific in Heresy! Hideous things to infantry, nasty things to Big Bads. And if memory serves, self repairing to some degree?

Scenery, my friend. Scenery.

Expensive scenery I'll grant you, but what a Weapon's Emplacement! Boom boom boom boom!

So that's it, I pre-ordered one.

Slightly better than a warlord for my needs and leagues ahead of a Reaver both in sculpt and rules (IMHO)

Now we wait.
Restocked more than 130 Vallejo "mecha" paints this week end, so eagearly waiting for it.

There are two, even, official Terran Ordo Sinister fully psychic titans, and bootleg Thousand Sons aligned Zhao-Arkkad Legio with some psychic upgrades, doing which would be as simple as giving them new rules in any expansion. I am actually kinda disappointed they weren't done yet, unlike other Legios mostly cosmetic differences, Xestobiax actually has real, tangible uniqueness...

They sat out the Heresy, though; the contingent on Prospero was almost certainly destroyed, and the rest basically hid at home until somehow getting declared loyal after the Heresy.

I'm sure (hoping) that some other contingents were at large. I'd love to see what they do with the Black Iron Core in AT

Shouldn't the flamer instantly melt away that candle?

And I am puzzled how a bit that thin stays attached, I'd bet on even delicate pulling it out of mould breaking it, it's fraction of a millimeter thick resin...

These all seem like nice specialist games releases. I do somewhat worry about what gets released over the next 6 weeks or so before the HH weekender. Maybe some Warlord upgrades? Isn’t there normally a free shipping voucher around this time of year? I find it hard to be excited by that these day with their lower threshold for free shipping. There’s still some unreleased Deredeo carapace options (missiles and atomantic pavaise I think?)

Possibly a silly question, guys and gals, but what was the last news on the Blood Bowl Troll whose render was previewed at last year's summer open day?

I've done a review of the head and weapons of the Warbringer Nemesis titan here:

https://youtu.be/woSg5qTzt30

A review of the body will follow later.

One pleasant surprise was that the ammo hoppers for the quake cannon are supplied with the gun not the body like the website suggests, they even include pre-made holes for magnets so you can easily swap them out when future weapons are released.

So, there is one actually nice feature on the new titan and the company not only doesn't mention it, but tries their best to cover up its existence by providing completely wrong information?

Can you say "incompetence"?

I love those Cawdor billhooks. I need some of those for conversions!
I have no idea what Cawdor is doing with a bunch of hedging tools in a Hive city though they do fit aesthetically.
