Anyways, so what is the latest news? Can we expect any new titans this summer, or better yet, the FW guns to stay in stock for longer than 39 minutes?


Nothing yet on new Titans but I'm sure the resin weapons will be restocked soon.

We also get 6 melee arms even if three were already included with the previous kit (there is no difference between melee weapons.

The real problem is that the arm part (part 26) isn’t included for the powerfists. I will need to source extras of those. Crap!



We must be getting a second sprue along with this one because the missile pods have a front, rear and top plate, but no base plate with a tiny peg on it to locate to the corresponding hole on the carapace like it should..

Don't think so. Part 42 is the main body, part 43 is the front, part 44 is the back, by the look of it. We're just looking at the top side of 42.

Very nice looking dice, beast_gts.

I'll probably go for Loyalist as its brighter in contrast to the ruleset dice, but the Traitor dice looks really cool!

You know you want both sets!

They had a reasonable idea that you can "mix" the different sets to make it easier to identify dice types with different colors.

Those dice! If not for Titanicus, I will definitely buy a set for regular gaming as well. Why can’t main GW studio make dice like these: ones on ones, symbol on 6, perfect contrast...

Because these are terrible, especially if you want fair rolling dice? Having similar sized icons on all sides is the way to go, unless you want to cheat, then by all means, grab one with tiny 1 to have that side be heavier so you can roll it as rarely as possible.

Even from gaming perspective, there are lots of reroll 1 (or misses) abilities in the game these days so being able to instantly see which ones you should re-roll saves time (and again, cuts down on cheating as opponent can see it as well) so I don't get the fixation on having it backwards...

There's a lot of truth in what you say. Though, I'd just like to point out that having a tiny '1' would be more likely to have it show up. I refer you to this Dakka article.

One needs to be violent in their throwing of dice for good results...

I throw my dice against the wall. I throw my dice at the floor. I throw them against the body of a Varsity Cheerleader. Throw them at the hood of a car! Throw them against the 1981 Harley Davison! The Harley howls in pain, the Dice howls in heat!

And thats when the owner punches me in the face for throwing dice at his classic and rather expensive bike. Which is fair play, but the point is that by throwing dice in this fashion I don't get spammed by 1s.

Did the dice howl in hate (chaos edition only)?
Seriously though I’d have thought the cheerleader would have slapped you long before you got to the bike…

But yeah, looking at turning some hab sector buildings into dice towers.

The Quake cannon is still in stock.

I noticed this was the case before. The Gatling Blaster just seems to be in much greater demand.

At least they're selling a few Warlord weapons here and there to you guys. I think both have been sold out in the US for weeks now.

I confess myself baffled by the idea that putting the symbol on 1 saves time.

A single pip looks so lonely and different to everything else (even two pips) that it's instantly obvious anyway... isn't it?

Whereas a 6 and a 5 could be mixed up if you're in a hurry.

But maybe I'm odd. Wait, that's not a maybe. I guess I never grew out of the stubborn five-year-old belief that Sixes are Special (and harder to roll than anything else).

Actually I prefer dice that don't have any special symbols at all. Good old boxcars and snake eyes are good enough for me.

I do take the point about unfairly weighted dice, though.

The point is moot anyway--I'll keep using the standard AT numbered dice, and use the new dice for the other ones (orders, reactor, etc). The different colour should help them stand out on the table. I wasn't going to bother with luxury bling dice, but in the last few games we kept mixing up the amber ones and not realising until it was too late.

Which makes sense. Quake cannon, while good weapon, is bit niche that you don't want to have multiples. For example warlord with twin quake cannon is not gtetting full effect of 2nd gun. Gatling blaster you can double up in full.

Also gatling blaster looks cool

Thanks for sharing that.

Agree that the release order of the minis could have been more logical!

James seems very passionate about the games he makes, and his thoughts on Titanicus are interesting.

Despite the naysaying on launch( it was understandable ) the Titanicus' product range grew decently from August through to January and won over its intended audience. Its just a shame that the last few months have been crap.
