If you've just started playing, buying the battle group + rule book is a much better purchase. You can use the spare money for...knights, or weapon pack.

Yeah just starting out i might have been better doing that way, at least my friend has the 1st print ed set + Warhounds so at least in our eyes games would be "balanced"(once i got some Warhounds), but i have got my eyes on the battle group as well as i imagine that would bolster things quite nicely.

Then again if you want all from gme it's free warlord vs free warhounds.

The GME is a solid starting point for a collection, though be careful. Titanicus can be addictive, and is a slippery slope as you add Titans for "just one more Maniple."

£14 a pop.

More than I hoped it would be, but less than I feared.

Though would be nice if the bundle order gave us a choice of plastic weapon sprue...

Yep - two of each ordered. Because titans. Waiting for the carapace stuff now. With these and next week's buildings and book I've got to crack on, while waiting for 11th May.

Currently unsure of these come with magnet sockets cast into them.

Pics on FW suggest not, but I’m hoping they’re just pre-production.

Have asked on FW’s Fb Page, and will report back accordingly.

I’m not sure if that’s been hand drilled though, and other images suggest it may be.

But as I said, my hope is that the pics are of pre-production, rather than finalised product?

...and they are sold out. EDIT: My mistake - apparently they simply aren't shipping to the US just yet...

I'm now on the email waiting list for when they come to their senses.

We'll find out soon enough eh.

Wait, so looking at their site - the softbacks aren't an option, they're a replacement? Brilliant, looks like FW are joining Black Library in being incapable of maintaining a range of collectibles in the same format.

The Titan weapons are brilliant, hopefully the carapace ones follow quickly.

Though I’m yet to get a game in, these weapons are particularly welcome, as they give us some flexibility in how we use our Warlords.

Currently, they’re more or else less straight up ‘killing blow’. With these? Effective and resilient shield stripper, and some Dakka that can ruin your opponent’s day by spinning an opposing Titan off it’s line of fire. Whilst neither is spectacularly Killy in its own right, they can still be outright game winning.

Quake cannon might be a useful weapon to slow down knight, unfortunately it had a "-1" at 24" range or less.

On the plus size it's the cheapest Warlord Arm and you can shake the table and pretend an actual earthquake happen every time it fires.

$22 USD for one weapon is...not great.

Not unexpected though, I suppose.

These go up literally a day after a friend on a trip to the UK put in an order for me at warhammer world.
Guess i will wait until the full size versions come out and go for free shipping.

Wish they would include ammunition counts for the projectile weapons. They might be easier to bring back online than those finicky energy weapons and not strain the reactor, but they should be able to run out of ammo in a sustained fight.

That would create the tradeoff between the more delicate (if damaged) energy weapons that can run indefinitely off reactor power vs. the ammunition consuming sturdy projectile weapons that are presumably also easier to fabricate, but which tie Titans to a supply line.

Ammo count is pointless because within a single battle between titans you will almost always never run out of ammo, even for a terrible weapon like Gatling Blaster.

Energy weapon had rule that push their reactor.

FW Siege of Vraks Part Two showed the Reaver Gatling had 90 rounds, so enough for 15 volleys. That's if fresh, but that would mean any Reaver that has to fight again before getting a chance to reload might very well run out.

This may translate into energy weaponed Titans being able to remain on station longer while the projectile weaponed ones have to keep going back to the hangar for reloading. Unless there is in the field reloading.
