Now that's a good look for them. All that gold on the standard GW colour scheme turns them into a giant blur.

All the TSons art looks awesome. They get a funky pre-crusade colour scheme, Ben Kingsley disguised as Amon, some cool robots, and termies with nifty helmets. Now let's see the models!

Yep. I want them so bad.

Might have to make an allied detachment of field police. Maybe with imperial fists rules.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Even if they did give us field police, it would probably be an apothecary type thing. But maybe taking up an HQ slot instead of an elites one.

Would we really be geeking out over field politics without knowing what they looked like?

Maybe a use for moritats...

Dunno, it was never explained. That picture and an ancient lead shoulderpad with that symbol on it was the only thing ever put out. Love how Forgeworld have turned them into Pseudo Commissars

OK, so I managed to get myself a warhound in the Adeptus Titanicus demo game.

This game is awesome. I cannot express how much I enjoyed playing and how brilliant this game is.

Brief partial synopsis:

Uses a turn sequence of roll for initiative(D10 off) Orders, move, fix, shoot, remove orders

Goes unit activation (so I move one, you move one until nothing to move then I fire one, you fire one until nothing left to fire)

Titans get a plasma overheat track. Doing stuff extra to the bare minimum causes a roll that may odd 0,1 or 2 to your overheat. If your overheating then between movement and shooting you might have "bad things" happen, I got a "take a powerful hit" which than caused my plasma to overheat by and extra 1 each turn! The opposing Warlord lost all of its void shields from an overheat (which is very, very bad).

A titan has 3 locations; Head, Body, legs. Each tracks damage separately. You can choose to target an area for a modifier to your to hot roll or take it randomly.

Right, time for bed so I'll leave with: This game is very awesome and will take all of my money as soon as it comes out.

Panic tests in 8th (or a typo)?




99% likely to be a typo. Forgeworld has an unfortunate tendency to use alternative names for rules sometimes. Brutal (or was it Furious) Assault instead of Furious Charge is one. I'm sure there are other instances where they've used their inhouse/unofficial name for a rule rather than the official name.

Yeah and Custodes Jetbike also give +1T on top of the +1T granted by the Jetbike type... however they're still only T6 rather than T7 (remembering Custodes are T5 base).

Again either a mistake or possible future-proofing. I'm inclined to go with superfluous mistake though atm.

Found the stats and rules for Magnus on the net. Sadly, no points.


Cast Cleansing Flame as WC4 using Mindwrath, on average it becomes 18" radius, 2d6x Str D (though only AP4) hits to every enemy unit within range with ignores cover. Ow. Owwwwwww. The pyromancy powers even become deadly too (Sunburst is a WC1 version of cleansing flame but with a bolter instead of a heavy bolter as base str and AP while molten beam becomes a 24" beam that's Str D AP1 on anything but snake eyes), but Smite? Smite also becomes Str D on average when pushed (and it's already AP2) with 4 shots and you're assured of getting it due to being a primaris. Oh dear.

Oh Magnus, if only you had access to flickering fire as well. Oh well, give it time, give it time...

He's 495 pts, so he's the 2nd most expensive Primarch.

But yeah wowzers he is amazing. Thankfully he doesn't hand out any innate buffs to his fellow Marines like most of the other Primarchs, he's mostly just a psychic beatstick.

Glory is fleeting, but obscurity lasts forever.

Considering also your duty as a warrior you should not waver. Because there is nothing more auspicious for a warrior than a righteous war.
