keep in mind AT came out originally set during the HH, and even in modern times chaos has used the same titan types as loyalists. go look on forge world and you'll see examples of traitor reavers etc

I'm hoping that we get to at least see the weapons sprues soon. I don't want the sprues just because of the additional weapons. I'd also like to know whether the Reaver sprue has additional upper arm pieces included. If the sprue doesn't have extra upper arm pieces (or doesn't have enough for all of the weapons), then you need to magnetize the elbows as well as the shoulders. If there are enough upper arm pieces, then only the shoulders should need to be magnetized if you want to be able to swap your weapons.

My guess is that at least one of the weapon sprues will be this month's release for AT18.

As nothing was in this month's WD, I think they're going to skip November in favour of the new Shadespire / Blood Bowl / Necromunda stuff. Instead I'd expect to see the weapon sprues in Dec/Jan just before Titandeath.

That mean nothing in first half but leaves 2-3 weeks for november where weapons could come without appearing in november wd.

Bear in mind Blackstone Fortress isn't in the November White Dwarf because it releases 23rd.

I've heard weapons sprue for preorder 24th November, but I've got no solid confirmation on that.

23rd? That's friday. GW does releases on saturday so that sounds odd. 24 for black fortress(preorder at 17 so fits for the WD thing perfectly) and weapons on preorder that I could believe.

Problem is the stream made it sound like they aren't coming in soon :-/

23rd was said by GW in the ‘preorder next weekend’ article for Blackstone Fortress. It’s Black(stone) Friday.

This is most likely a concession to the US market. For those of you overseas, Thursday the 22nd is a national holiday, Thanksgiving. Friday the 23 is traditionally the biggest Christmas shopping day of the season, as many people are off from work that day also. So the Blackstone release was likely timed so it could be front and center for this.

That's the confirmed pre-order date for the battleforce boxed sets. My money is on Dec 1st preorder.

GW have been saving the big releases they don't want leaked via WD for mid-late month. Weapon packs hardly fall into that category. All AT releases so far have been in that month's WD.

The comment was a reference to the date. The 23rd is on a Friday. GW's releases of late have been on Saturdays.

But the 23rd is also the single shopping day of the year in the US, so having a release on that date makes a certain amount of sense.

Hmmmm. The only thing new I'm seeing in these images (and even then only for the Warlord) is the weapons.

Perhaps these are simply pictures from the fluff section of Titandeath.

And he referred to FW resin and FW does indeed do friday releases. So if they were FW resin 23rd could be indeed possibility. Except weapon sprues we know to be resin.

Or new legio specific rules. What did you expect from 2 legions that use "lots of warhounds and reavers" and one that's heavy legion(so presumably would be lots of warlords and maybe some reavers).

Also, do we know if they're going to make some cosmetic upgrades? Feels like the Lucius-Alpha head features prominently both in the rulebook and now on the new legio art. I would personally much rather have that or even a Mars-Beta head on my Warlord.

I know Andy said during the AT talk on Twitch that there were no plans on doing conversion kits for Lucius pattern titans, but the Warlord heads would make sense since they're current kits that feature in art etc.

There's been no official confirmation, but as Reaver / Warlord heads are on the current weapon sprues it wouldn't surprise me if we saw alternative versions on the other sprues. I left the head for one of each magnetised just in case.

We still don't even have news on the weapon upgrades for the existing Knights & Titans, I doubt we'll see news about new actual-miniatures until the next Weekender in February.

I'm debating grabbing some pretty good conversion weapons from online to swap on a warlord, or wait for an official weapon sprue.

btw I was thinking how sprues will be and I'm leaning toward idea of 2 sprues for warlord. Both with carapace and 2 guns plus 2nd carapace for one. Alas I suspect gatling blasters+sunfury+claw for one and quake cannon+macro blasters+vulcan mega bolter for one(plus turbo lasers either). I would prefer claw and macro blasters switch place.

Why I think? Well that weapon amount match the standard weapons sprue weapon count so if the sizes are about same can't be much more than that. And I would presume the one they have 40k sized digital files already would be first ones out.

Of course it's possible they sell them in packs of both.

If separate and composition matches I think I need 3 sprues with sunfury and 2-3 of the other(that macro blaster...)

Reaver needs 3 arm weapons and 1 carapace(warp missile is resin add on) so these could actually be on one sprue.

Please come soon!

No.


However, someone on the AT FB group shared that the Titandeath novel specifically names a:

...Rapier class scout, a lighter, swifter machine than even a Warhound.


Guessing that's the precursor to the Slaaneshi Subjugator or Questor class titans? Might be seeing that one in 2019.

At this point I fully do not give a gak exactly how they choose to do it, I just want them to do it. Mainly so people can start posting 3D printed versions to the AT2018 FB group to spite its ridiculous gatekeeping admins, who insist they can totes tell the difference, but who obviously won't be able to once the "official" ones exist.
