Re: Forgeworld Open Day 2016 - News and Rumour

Anyway as we were chatting about blood bowl he pulled out a play testing copy of asepticus titanicus from the eighties! It had Polaroid pictures in it and the old printer paper with the holes in the side! Anyway adepticus titanicus is his next project. The old scale was really mixed with troops too big and Titans too small! New scale is going to be 8mm, so should work really well. He was saying with the new models you can see the marks of armour on space marines infantry, so although small should still be really detailed, by the sound of things this makes a warlord the size of a contemptor.


He seems to be speculating on the size and ending up a bit wrong. It's previously been mentioned the Warlord would be about 6" which is about what you get when you scale the 40k warlord down to the 8mm scale. Maybe he misheard something. In the 8mm a reaver Titan ends up pretty close to Contemptor sized, however.

I got to talk with Alan about a few things today as well. Great guy, very informative and seems to have a genuine interest in keeping both the fluff and crunch side of the games healthy.

Regarding the new Imperial Armour book, I didn't get a date but "soon". Before HH7 at least.

HH7 will include rules for the Secutarii and other new mechanicum stuff for 30k.

Regarding the Auxilia it is very unlikely that new units will be in HH7. There are no plans at all for rough riders. His reply was a scornful look and the words "Horses in space??"...

Also had a great chat with Darren Parwood. Apparently the size of the Porphyros knight came about after a panel talk, where the team noticed thst if they made it the same size as the Paladin and Cerastus, it would be difficult to differentiate the three in Adeptus Titanicus. So they decided to scrap it and make a bigger one.. He also mentioned that until GW made the knight Warden box, the Porphyron was called the Warden.

Alan also mentioned that they may split the Blood Angels/Dark Angels book into separate books. Still a lot of things up in the air apparently.
Thramas and Signus are not the campaigns they are looking at for these two.

Lol, that's really not a thread you want to pull at with anything 40K related!

I hope they don't split the books. I've waited long enough for the Dark Angels. I really don't want to wait another 2 years at this rate.

It sure sounds like they're further along on Titanicus than they've actually told us, if they're producing test sample of a Knight and scrapping its 40k version just because of the Titanicus version.

I don't think I like its bigger size.

This is dissapointing. It's not surprising that there is some bloc of GW/FW designers who dislike the concept, it certainly explains why we haven't seen anything. As it gets pointed out often enough, they don't need to be proper "horses"... they could be any number of forms of riding beast.

I did mention to Alan that they might be bikes, small walkers or whatever. Got no comment on that. :-p

Re: Titanicus, Darren has test printed the Various Titans, Leman Russes, Rhinos, Knights and various infantry.
It was after seeing all these at several scales that the choice to go with 8mm scale was made.

His emphasis was on 25% of 40k size instead of 20% in old Epic.

I fished for info on Aeronautica or other small scale aircraft. Got an interesting reply to this. He would very much like to do a new fighter game, but focusing on the larger void-fighter craft.
He always felt that the various fightercraft in gothic felt out of place and would have been better served at a scale in between Gothic and Epic.....

I did mention Xwing as an argument for having another go at fighter games. They are well at aware of Xwings success and would like to ride that wave of course.
But his main reason is that he likes the idea of voidcraft. :-)

Yeah, the Fury is massive at 60-70m long, even if not quite 100m.


Imagine that you’re sitting down to dinner with your family, and while everyone else gets a serving of the meal, you don’t get any. So you say “I should get my fair share.” And as a direct response to this, your dad corrects you, saying, “everyone should get their fair share.” Now, that’s a wonderful sentiment — indeed, everyone should, and that was kinda your point in the first place: that you should be a part of everyone, and you should get your fair share also. However, dad’s smart-!@# comment just dismissed you and didn’t solve the problem that you still haven’t gotten any!

The problem is that the statement “I should get my fair share” had an implicit “too” at the end: “I should get my fair share, too, just like everyone else.” But your dad’s response treated your statement as though you meant “only I should get my fair share”, which clearly was not your intention. As a result, his statement that “everyone should get their fair share,” while true, only served to ignore the problem you were trying to point out.

That is why we need feminism, and why I am not simply egalitarian.

Excellent day, though slightly disappointed that Fires of Cyraxus and the Vulterax wasn't available. The Moritat looked stunning and is currently being tooled, so not long hopefully. The Macrocarid too was stunning. Now, onto specialist games. Managed to collar the lads and spent a good amount of time pumping them for information:

First blood bowl, most is probably already known:
- The release box will be plastic and contain the full rules
- The following teams are planned for the initial run of releases: Human, Orc, High Elf, Wood Elf, Dark Elf, Elven Nations, Nurgle, Dwarf and Skaven
- He mentioned a dead zone supplement that will expand on them
- Resin teams and upgrade sets for all teams are planned
- Was mentioned that cheerleaders and apothecaries would make excellent the event pieces, though nothing like the original Orc cheerleader!
- Illegal procedure is now an optional rule!
- They won't be following age of sigmars background or race naming for blood bowl
- Ask Lord Borak 'may' return!
- Dungeon bowl was also mentioned as something they're looking at

And now, Adeptus Titancius. As mentioned above, the original play test box is quite the relic and was worth a look.
- They're digging into all previous Epic games for inspiration, but it will be a new rule set.
- Expect Titans to have a plasma reactor power tracker to keep track of how much power they have.
- They'll be able to overload the reactor to boost power with a risk (Overload voids, increase speed, etc)
- Harpoons will be back but nowhere near as ridiculous as they used to be!
- Expect 2nd edition Epic orders and damage charts
- Expect 1st edition campaign and upgrade rules
- Engine war will be a bit of a slugfest, with Titans slowly blasting each other to Atoms, staggering about, weapons missing, systems burnt out, but still able to fight until you smash the legs, pulverise the MIU's or cause the reactor to go nuclear.
- Manourberability is key - the heavier the Titan, the slower they are. He described a play test where his final warlord was scragged when an enemy warhound got behind it and he didn't have enough power to overload the reactor to take more turns than they can
- Knights are objective grabbers and shield droppers, don't expect them to go toe to toe with Titans and survive
- Campaign games are the default mode of play, similar to Necromunda as he described it. With options for competitive and open play.
- Machine spirit personality will play a role. This sounded really exciting. Titans will pick up a personality the more used they are. So you could end up wth a Titan geared for close combat and have it turn into a bit of berserker which will have an effect of it becoming less controllable in battle. 'Resting' the Titan becomes an important choice to make. Yes, your Titan could end up with PTSD or worse...
- They're starting out with the three classes and Knights, all in resin
- They'll be a game box that'll contain just the rules and terrain, a Horus heresy style black book for the main rules with additional background and colour imagery and the models in resin
- As for future Titans, expect a new class between warlord and reaver as well as a Nemesis class and, he got really excited, PsiTitans (at last)! Imperator would only appear if the game proves popular
- They're now running through play testing the game with a wider player base

That's all I can recall for now.

Did anyone spot anything about the Ta'unar weapons. We've all seen them, but I want to know if they discussed potential stats on the new back weapons.

Thanks.

Any designers notes on the new Barricuda resculpt/stats or any neat information? Will it be getting its new rules in the upcoming Tau IA?

Really, REALLY looking forward to Porphyrion. Also, does this mean there are going to be separate Mechanicum related Cerastus Knight variants? Like the Acheron with Mechanicum-styled carapace?
