Necromunda got 4 plastic kits in 2018 correct? If Titanicus goes the same route I bet we will see the new Reaver, a new Warhound (perhaps the lucius variant), another knight, and then a brand new titan model. That would work out to around 4-6 new sprues which seems like a doable amount of new stuff without going too overboard.


The alternate Reaver is probably to come out within a month as it's been shown already. GW said in a recent Twitch thing that Lucius and other alternate armour patterns aren't on their plans as they'd rather use plastic kits for new units, rather than cosmetic variations on existing ones. I think any armour or Warhound variants are going to be resin upgrade packs (ursus claws!). An AT scale Warbringer kit has to be a no brainer, along with some of the other new classes mentioned in the Titandeath novel (definitely written around AT fluff). There's a 'Rapier' scout titan that's smaller than a Warhound and likely a precursor design for the classic Slaanesh Epic models.

We also know they have some unreleased resin terrain in the pipeline, like that train.

And when they don't, you clearly didn't say the incantation properly. Fast for one week, replace another appendage with a suitable bionic replacement, and start the ritual from the beginning again.

I wonder how much new stuff we will see for Titanicus this year? It has clearly been a big hit but given the long lead times for plastic kits it could be a while before we see a good chunk of new models.

My guess is that they've got one more set of weapon variants for the Warlord and Reaver in plastic.

...and Titandeath.

After that, I'd say you're correct, it will be a while before the next plastics. However, I suspect FW will keep us occupied with more rare weapon variants in resin.

My crystal ball will be mighty cloudy till I see what direction they take in the new book.

Somebody here or in AT FB forum said that based on his talks with the guys he got impression rest of weapons are coming resin. Which means likely bit pricier.

Hoping knights get more guns sometime. Current 1 of each is very annoying. Want banner of 6 rapid fire and 6 thermal lances? Buy 6 boxes! Something like resin upgrade set with 2 of each I could see. Box+1 of those and you could make 3 with same gun for all 3 weapons(and if this comes I'm going to be kicking myself for not magnetizing my knights...)

AT is already doing pretty well for releases compared to the other SG. That said all three are fairly different beasts in the type of kits they need so its a tough one to predict.

They strongly implied in the last Twitch stream that the Warlord / Reaver will get the two plastic weapons sprues we've seen, and the rest will be in resin. Apparently several are already done and just awaiting release.

See, that kind of news really biles ma pish. Not that they're in resin, that they're already done and they're sitting on them. And will no doubt keep sitting on them, trickling them out one or two at a time over a period of months.

Seriously, they deserve to have their lunch eaten by third parties and 3D printing.

At this point all the basic reaver weapons are covered. Warlord could use one more plastic set with the lucius head, quake cannon and Gatling blaster arms, and another carapace option.

Reaver will still be missing carapace bolters. But seems no 3rd sprue for warlord. Ah well. I just want the gatling blaster carapace and macro gatling blaster fast!

Seems FW don't make a 28mm Warlord gatling blaster. Does anyone have a pic of an AT warlord with a Contemptor / Redemptor assault cannon? (or just a scale pic of either).

"Completed" can mean many things.
The 3D designs might be done but not masters or moulds. Moulds might be done but might be only one and not others. Might be they've got the masters and moulds and all done, but they've not yet put it into a production slot to produce enough to sustain a world wide release. Even just production of enough stock would take time. 3rd parties can often swoop in because whilst they serve an active part of the market, they are often serving a smaller niche and very few are supplying huge numbers of stores (in fact many only just about sell through their own website, ebay and perhaps one or two stores). So they don't have to mass produce enough product in advance of a release.

Also I think GW's intention is to trickle releases out so that they avoid leaving the game with years of nothing. Take AT and Necromunda - if GW really wanted they could have released everything for those games that has been released now over a 2 week period. 2 weeks an the entire range up to now released worldwide. Great if they did that, but at the same time it would likely mean a year or two before they'd be ready for another release or have anything for us.

I think modern GW wants to avoid that. It's better to trickle out products and have something every so often than leave a game "abandoned".


I'd wager each time something new comes out GW makes big sales not just on the new thing, but on all the rest as new people see continual support and decide to invest in the game whilst existing fans are reminded and encouraged to buy. Oh new weapons, I'm going to need a few new titans! Oh new titan I don't like, bleh I'll get those warhounds I've been wanting instead.

By GW schedule by the time they release something the next one is often "ready", does not mean they're ready to hit the shelf or they had to release them right away like it is some kind of emergency. AT already had the fastest release window out of all Specialist games.

I imagine we'll see another kit of Knights soon, as the current kit's carapace has the plug holes for carapace weapons. Perhaps a Warden/Crusader/Errant kit with the current Questoris sprue plus a sprue of carapace weapons and Thunderstrike Gauntlets

I agree. Probably with some head variants and some doubles of the exisiting weapons. It would be interesting if they include the AA cannon.....

Would be cool if the AA cannon got a bonus to hit aircraft _or_ models of scale 8 or larger as they're so big! I imagine a little Knight's AA shooting almost straight up to hit a Warlord that's right in front of it...

Well these won't be through stores either. Just fw website. And wonder how big stock fw does without automated casting machine. Resin bit different to plastia in that regard

IIRC, they said a couple of the weapons were done, so perhaps the guy doing them hasn't done enough weapons for an upgrade pack yet.

Initial run is limited but it will be in regular production next year according to GW.


I have a sneaking suspicion they will throw in the extra Warlord weapon sprue in the next run. Just one sprue though.

I suspect that this is correct. They need to give the impression that the game is solid, and will continue to be supported. We've already got a massive thread (over a dozen pages) in one of the other sub-forums in which people are insisting that AT is dead. How much worse would it be if we didn't see any new releases until October? With a new item out every month or two, GW and FW can show that the game is being supported.

Of course, the easiest way to show that it's being supported would be to get full-on Ork and Craftworld Eldar releases out. A full rerelease of the Gargants (picking Orks over Eldar since there were more Ork hulls in the old Epic) in the new scale would make it clear that the game is here to stay, as well as completely overturn the existing game dynamics (since introducing the Orks would force a rethink of the meta). But presumably that's still at least a year out, if not longer.

Well, we’ve got one person that started a thread wishing it dead at any rate?

We’re not going to see Xenos stuff for a while yet. There’s still the Cerastus variants to come, missing weapon systems and the Porphyrion to come. And that new Titan that came out for Heresy.

And the new Titans mentioned in Titandeath. The team has talked openly about the 'in-between' titans (and special ones like Ordo Sinister), so they're going to happen. My personal health advisory is to avoid holding one's breath waiting for the xenos titans.

There was a brief reference to a Nemesis class, which I guess still counts.

Princeps of the Emperor's Titan!






Nightgaunts, in the olden days, were a specific Warlord variant, as seen here;



As was the Nemesis of course, as seen here;



So, we have a vague trend by which we might make some educated guesses.

Nightgaunts appear to be lighter in frame. Fewer VSGs, but far, far faster, and specifically noted as being highly manouverable. Now, these ancient, dusty things pre-date Warhound and Reaver rules (and I think their models), so clearly their original niche are now performed elsewhere.

Nemesis were the big boys. Biggest and best dakka. Loads of VSG's. But sloooooooow.

And if we look hyere, it appears the Warbringer Titan is more-or-less a replacement for the Deathbringer variant....(Macro Cannon, two smaller shooty bits)



So, pick the bones out of that and have a good old ponder!
