Was hoping for the vulcan bolter, but I guess its good for supply that they space it a bit.

Has anyone heard anything at the events, or has it been mentioned elsewhere, if any of the AT-scale Titan weapons will be made at 28mm scale?

Would love to see those carapace Gatling Blasters on my Warlord...


I believe FW stated at one of the events that they were designing the weapons at 28mm scale with full detail and then shrinking them for AT. Which is kind of backed up by the new 28mm version of the Reaver\Warbringer Volcano cannon, which matches the version on the AT Reaver sprue, so hopefully they will get 28mm releases.

I'm also very keen on some 28mm carapace gatling blasters as I think they look very cool.

edit - In fact I have a feeling I heard that the image of the gatling blasters we've seen was actually the 28mm version, though I may be wrong.

Reckon this'll go well in the Knife Fighter Murder Maniple from Molech.

See, equip this, podshot a Warlord, then spend the rest of the game getting up close and nasty.

I broke my ban on ordering from the US FW store and grabbed 2. Otherwise I'll never get the chance again. Too bad no restocks on the warlord weapons at the same time, naturally.

Honestly, with how unimpressive this looks, I don't know if I'd bother. Two cost 26-30 pounds depending on postage to your location - meanwhile, IG Manticore costs 32 (and can be bought for less than that), comes with 4 similarly sized rockets, and after you used the bits you have still whole Deathstrike kit you can keep or sell for virtually free upgrade. Guns are one thing, but rockets come in so many boxes even someone awful at kitbashing can make their own launcher looking just as good for much less than FW demands.

I've got a Manticore stashed away somewhere, so I haven't looked at it in a while. I'm pretty sure each missile is longer than a Reaver's hull though.

I've ordered a couple of the missiles. Might give them a go one day.

Manti core missile is about the height of the reaver. Even a hunter killer missile would be a bit long. Some of the shells from the Baneblade or vindicator might be a good start.

While I think a lot of people would love to see a return to Epic, with all the 40k fixtures, the AT developers have made strong points about avoiding that. Its largely a case of how to keep titans feeling like titans while still making lesser units viable in the game.

Part of it comes down to the dice and model counts. Games have certain granular limits. An individual soldier or even a squad can't be less viable than having a single die to try and roll a single value on that die to succeed at that mechanic. And if you do have something that minimally viable, what should it be worth in the game? And how do you balance taking an army filled out with only that minimally viable unit against the single biggest model. If the single big model plays the way it should, everything dies and they shouldn't be a threat at all; so it will likely have to be neutered in some way to maintain the lowest units viability. Its part of the reason Titan don't tend to do to well in 40k.

I'm looking forward to Aeronautica and I really hope they use it as an opportunity to expand on the variety of aircraft for the different factions.


Shouldn't be threat? Ummm...books are full of non-titans being threat to titans...so no titans being impervious "ignore anything non-titan" would NOT be fluffy

That's a render, the whole thing is a 3D sculpt. That said, you can't just rescale stuff by a simple percentage, if it's 40K scale you need to edit the model to close up tiny holes, enlarge panel lines and rivets etc, thicken up some parts before it's appropriate for AT scale.

I need to acquire plastic Skavenslaves, can you help?

Like waiting for warlord weapons from fw? Some people have offered workarounds, but it's still a joke.

OMG, that is absolutely diabolical!

Even still, the terminals are being sold by GW instead of FW, so hopefully it shouldn't be as bad. They did say a while ago that the Knight terminals would be available again around the release of the Acastus Terminals...so it sounds like the restock has been planned in advanced(I suppose it all is, but they did mention it).

So, yeah, hopefully it should be soon.

Does anyone know if the content of the Loyalist and Traitor Command Terminals and Stratagem Cards are available in any places other then the command terminal and stratagem card packs?

Are they in any of the already released books?

Online via GW?

Thanks!

My understanding is that the Loyalist and Traitor Titans of Legend are only available on the command terminals but the Loyalist and Traitor stratagem card packs are basically bundling together stratagems available in the different books already published, either being Legio specific, Loyalist or Traitor specific or neutral (available for both like titan-hunter infantry for instance).
If anyone can confirm this is the case, that would be cool.

Got emails today that the warlord arms were in stock in the us webstore. Clicked the link within a minute of the email arriving. Temporarily out of stock. GG Forgeworld. So glad the higher prices from a us distro location are being put to good use. So much more convenient.

I must say that is a bit much and I'd personally send them a complaint.

Are there third parties making Titanicus-compatible pieces aside from Warcradle's scenery?

Apparently, they made two of each, and one each got sold to Bill in accounting, so....

But hey, at least you got the email! I've been registered for a while and never even got that! It's like you're in the club!

Edit: just checked and the knight terminals have sold out again, too. GW is really, REALLY bad at both sending emails (didn't get one for either product) and estimating demand for their AT stuff. Hooray.

While I can't really defend GW's seeming inability to anticipate demand for AT products, they are guessing with information that's 9 months old with production and shipping times...

Indeed. Looting stock items isn’t our thing, unless it’s been long term out of stock.
