It’s doesn’t really bother me, it’s a forum full of nerds talking about plastic models so I don’t mind.

Going over the same old thing over and over irritates me a bit, no matter what the subject. Except when I'm drunk. Then I can talk about the same old gak endlessly and not get bored. I imagine it's annoying though to my conversational partner if they're less drunk than me.

I imagine you get annoyed every time someone mentions prices, codex creep, Matt Ward, autocannon Dreads, the word “meta,” plastic Sisters, and lack of Xenos players.

There are a LOT of topics - in this thread no less - more boring then speculating on if/when Epic might reappear.

These new Titan models will work well for a game of Epic right now - as they're finally scaled 'right' to fit with the rest of the models.

I hope that GW eventually does bring back Epic - it was their best game, and is the best scale to really represent the mass battles that they're often trying to foist on 40K scale models.

So, if it crops up here frequently? So be it!

No I read pretty much only this thread. I imagine I might get irritated though. Annoyance is too strong an emotion to connect to codex creep (I don't play 40K) or Matt Ward (I read a bit of his BA codex once, it was so badly written it was almost painful, but I just read the fluff, IDK if he was responsible for that). The word "Meta" sometimes irritates me, as do "Viable" and "Protocol", among many others.

So looking ahead to Titandeath, it sounds like the most awesome battle in the 40K saga only second to the Emperor storming Horus' starbarge( or whatever it was ). Is anyone getting the novel on friday?



Definitely interested. But it looks like a e-book only release for now? Think I might wait for a dead tree version.

Opps, I mean't Saturday.

It will be a hardback for £20.

Is that waht hardbacks go for these days, or are we paying for permium BL content here? (AKA kindling, unless it's by Abnett or Wraight, or maybe some other BLer has miraculously pulled something worth reading from the air, as they're occasionally known to do).

That's about what hardbacks cost in general. None of Black Library's book prices seem to be particularly out of line with the rest of the industry (special editions aside).

Does anyone know if Epic will be a hardback or ebook?

We haven't heard a sausage from GW as to whether epic will even make a comeback, let alone when it might.

I think the subject of an Epic come back needs its own thread now, and to keep this one clear for discussion of the game Adeptus Titanicus, because even back in the day it was a stand alone game in its own right...

What if Epic isn't its own game and is merged with AT and becomes one game: Adeptus Epicus.

BOOM

So there is a hardback version of Titandeath is up for pre order this weekend, not just the e-book. It will be interesting to see if there are any hints about the future of AT in there.

Also does anyone else find the colour scheme for Legio Solaria slightly festive?

You, see, many want a release of a new Epic.

Meanwhile they do no longer completely exclude that Epic could be released in the Future (when AT18 is selling well).

Rumor and Insider Queen Atia also mentioned that they have interest in "Tiny Marines".

Its there Imperator on the Titandeath cover. WoS has a few more exampleshttps://war-of-sigmar.herokuapp.com/bloggings/3379 If it wasn't for the mottled white effect over the green I could have been tempted to give it a go.

Somehow that brings to mind fellow loyalist titans making facepalm gestures...and the heretics laughing their balls off, taking the piss....

The real question is:

Will there be protocol that's viable within the meta?

No one in this thread has any inside sources or knowledge of GW rumors beyond what’s reported on Facebook, the community page, or any events. Let’s not pretend there’s any groundbreaking discussions that will be generated here. No one is going to get any scoops about new titans or rules before they’re announced; it’s pretty clear that GW itself was the source of rumors all these years and now they’ve moved into the open with their upcoming releases. The future of AT and its ecosystem are important to me (with $1k invested so far) and I’ve since moved to the camp who’d like to see an Epic reboot as way to grow AT.

You can ignore my posts any time you like but you do get bonus points for using the word “tangentially.”


To be fair the Epic discussion crops up about once a week on this thread. Far be it for me to object to what's being discussed (I don't like it when people do that), but really, it's the same thing over and over. I know you read this thread regularly. You must have read the same posts on
"Is Epic coming?"
"No I don't think so"
"Oh I think it's very likely cos...."
"Well ok, but when? Surely not for ages"
"Guys it's not happening, they need to focus on AT".

How many of these little discussions do you partake in? Are you not bored of them yet? (I am).


The real thing stopping Epic, rather than it coming down to the will of GW, is how many lines of miniatures would have to be designed and released.

I doubt many of the original moulds have survived from previous versions, and a lot of the designs of things have changed.

Blood Bowl, Necromunda, AT - all of these can be re-released with relatively few sculpts and in single boxset that people can pick up and play very quickly.

Epic wasn't a Specialist Game, or a single one-and-done boxset back in the day. It was a 3rd main game alongside 40k and WHFB, and had hundreds of separate releases with as many miniature lines and as much shelf space as either of those games.

So that's why Epic won't be re-released, or if it is, then it won't be on anything like in the same volume as before.

So you're better of just downloading the Epic Armageddon rules for free, picking up some old cheap minis off eBay (or going to someone like Vanguard miniatures) and chucking in a few infantry or tank divisions to use alongside your AT titans

Two points...

1) I'm really glad it's Guy Haley writing the novel of Titandeath... Dan Abnett would be better, but anyone would be better than David Annandale - "Warlord" was atrocious...

2) So, um, do we have any actual AT or Titandeath news or rumours?

This Epic wish-listing is going a bit (like a lot) OT now...

I don't think we've any rumours at present besides vague "this titan exists in lore/previous editions and thus might be coming". I think the only rumour out there that we've not had any news on is the psywarlord titan sculpt. Otherwise we know there's the upgrade pack for warlords on the horizon and some weapons from FW but other than that nothing.

I listened to Warlord on YouTube (someone uploaded it, dunno if it’s still there) and I couldn’t finish.

But there's nothing stopping them going with a version of the original release pattern, which solved that problem then and would also do so now - do Space Marine next(though this time as a direct expansion to AT rather than as a separate game with a "bridging" expansion to link them up). It can continue using the Heresy setting to get away with only producing a single set of sprues for all factions, can be expanded with Chaos-specific stuff once the initial wave of HH Marines are out of the way, and then it would provide a solid platform to add Xenos races for a transition to full Epic.

I find the dripfeed model incredibly frustrating, especially as we bloody well know GW have the resources to just knock this stuff out but won't in order to minimise the risk to themselves(and it sucks for Xenos-only players in the short term), but if it's the only way they'll do it then it'll have to do.
