Thanks for the advice, everyone! It’s been quite helpful, not knowing the rules or how the game plays makes it hard to know where to start.

So I think I’ll forego the Knight battlegroup and look for some discount titans instead. It’s a shame GW only did limited runs of the grouped sets, they would have made the price much more bearable.

Well the knight box isnt' that bad for alongside titans and indeed works nicely for it. It has full banner of questors, full lancer and half a poryphonion. Not too much of any to use with titans and all have purpose to be done. You'll likely end up with that in the end anyway...

Has anyone seen the Knight Household Battleforce for sale online in the USA? I was thinking of picking one up with the additional 15% discount but unlike the Titan Battleforce, it doesn't seem like ebay is flooded with product this time around.

Sadly none that I am aware of. What retailers do you usually use?

I was wondering if it was webstore only, though it doesn't have the icon to indicate that.

Although a UK supplier, Wayland Games are doing it for discount. I assume there would be similar outlets in the US.

It is a limited release. The online retailer that I usually use got 50, on the weekend, and the available total counted down to 45 and then didn't update further. When I checked again on Monday morning they were sold out. I got one from somewhere else. I imagine they're mostly gone now.

Miniatures Market and eBay in the USA. Miniatures Market has most of the other seasonal boxed sets, just not the Knight Household. There was actually a guy in Australia of all places selling them for a discount when I checked the other day. It's just a little strange since last year I was able to pick up 2 of the Titan Battlegroups, one from eBay and one from Miniatures Market. Just thought I'd be able to do the same for the Knight Household; which is enough of a value to warrant purchasing even without the additional 15% online discount.

Its a shame you can't do it through the UK because Wayland have it at 20% discount, but the import tax for the US would probably kill that.

That said, Miniatures Market might get it in the new year as the US has been known to get things in slightly later than we do in the UK, and even here we've had long shortages of essential items like the Command Terminals and Weapon sprues(it was a long time before I could obtain the Reaver Melta upgrade).

Got my new questoris knight and the upgrade sprue is much smaller than I thought, it's 1/4 the size of a normal sprue, which is even smaller than the sprue in AI.

Now if only the upgrade sprue is bigger( like AI kit, same price, double the size), this could easily squeeze in more bits, like left side guns, banner, base decor, more head, knight preceptor/chaos knight weapons. ......

Having two more of each gun, and 3 more chainswords would have been a better option. The gauntlets are actually nice, but they offer nothing new to the game - and the game should really come first. The new heads at least mark a High Scion or Senechal.

Chainsword, flst, same except now people can do gallants. Twin chainsword would look more odd. More guns yes but fists rather than chainswords

I just wish the upgrade sprue had the 6 shoulders on it I need to magnetize.

You can magnetise between the shoulder joint and the arm. It's delicate work but I've managed it with 2x1mm round magnets. Glad I did.

Also something I just noticed now from the back of the box is that this is the prototype version of the knights, featuring a much much better gatling cannon with barrels, and a more accurate gun central axis. From the close up shot of the gatling gun in the box you can see clearly these are detail and not paint job effect.

Can't believe they ran out of space for a tiny "gatling gun cap" bit. shame. Drilling barrels on this gun had been a real pain.

Seeing that community picture is welcome, and for a moment recalls last August when Titanicus seemed like the "Rolls Royce" of the 40K library of games. As grand as its scale is, each one of our Titans feels more of a character than the champions featured in the usual 40K games, and not because of their backstory but because of the gameplay itself, and that is quite an achievement for a tabletop wargame.

Stupid question I'm sure, but do we know what might be released next for Titanicus?

Calth.

Nah, its a good question.

Cerastus upgrades, the Asterius, the "Rapier" scout titan, Battle of Calth.

Beyond that the game's future is a mystery.

Anyone got a pic of the Rapier scout titan? I googled it and there was one with 2 claws and a scorpion tail, with a heavy stubber looking gun on the end.

Any modern concept art of it?

I also read on here something about the Warbringer maybe?

Its only been mentioned in text so far iirc. Unfortunately none of it was very descriptive, other than its a small scout class Titan.

The claws and scorpion tail thing sounds like one of the old Epic Slanneshi scout Titans. Its quite possible that GW may use that as the inspiration for a non chaos corrupted precursor machine(FW have done this with the Mechanicum flying drone). But so far that's just speculation.

Maybe like a close-combat version of a Warhound?

Maybe the Squats were all the Space Marines we made along the way.

Apparently the Rapier was briefly mentioned in the Titandeath novel.

It could well be as the Warhound is the only titan to lack a proper melee weapon. I'd assume it would be faster and maybe a countermeasure to knights.

Or as a sort of scout/recon unit for the Legions. The Warhound is a scout, but also a pack hunter/ambush predator, designed to take on other titans as needed. Something with lighter weapons, enough to deal with non-titanic targets, and lighter armor but faster with better sensors and communications gear to trailblaze and spy for the legion, perhaps even serve as spotters for ranged support titans like the Nemesis Warbringer and Warmonger Emperor.

I'm hoping the Warbringer Nemesis is under work, with some new carapace guns. It could get by with just a single set of arm weapons since it shares with the reaver, but it would be great if they added some new carapace mounts besides just the quake cannon artillery. It would be cool to see more exotic weapons for it, like a Sonic cannon (already on the ordinatus) or a massive plasma mortar, like a Sunfury crossed with the Hellex mortar off the Thanatar.

The Warbringer seems like the next logical choice, with the 40K kit as a guide and sharing weapons with the reaver, but apparently it is still a long way off.

...and I suspect that the gap in Titanicus releases is due to something being done in plastic. And we all know that means about a year of lead time.

The Rapier was definately a recon orientated Titan. The Warbringer is a likely candidate to be released alongside Calth because Legio Suturvora possessed 6(5?) of them.

Agreed. They just need to reduce the size and tool into plastic. Also, alongside, I reckon we'll see the Cerastus upgrade sprue as well. And that just leaves the remaining Knights such as the Asterios, Atropos and the like to be produced. They did say those were going to be resin, but that was just after Titanicus was released and I reckon they'll be shifted to plastic due to how well the game has sold so far. I also reckon a ruined terrain sprue is in production as well.

I also reckon they're working on the next big release which is hoovering up a lot of resources. My current guess is they're working on either Battlefleet Heresy or a new 30k Heresy starter set.

I'm going to connect some dots.

IIRC, someone from the studio clarified at an event that Legio Audax isn't limited to Warhound Titans...they're limited to SCOUT Titans. This is, to my knowledge, a slight retcon of what was presented in Betrayer and other places we've had glimpses of Audax.

This was interesting to me for a couple reasons. First, it suggests that they've been thinking about Audax, which makes sense if the 'Calth' book covers elements of the greater Shadow Crusade. That's the most logical place for them to receive their treatment. Second, the Rapier is a Scout Titan. Therefore, I think it's possible that we'll get the Rapier alongside the next book with Audax rules pushing people to buy LOTS of them. Maybe that's wishful thinking on my part, but that feels like the way GW rolls.

I think the Warbringer is also a solid bet, mind you. They supposedly had SIX new chassis in development, so getting two new Titans early in 2020 isn't unreasonable, even if it seems like a huge bounty to starved Legio players.

Interesting line of thinking – certainly makes sense.

Talking of Scout Titans, the only ones we saw prior to mention of the Rapier were the old Slaaneshi Questor and Subjugator Daemon Engines. I wonder if we'll see some nods to their design in the Rapier, in the same way as the 40k-scale HH range is releasing non-corrupted versions of things like the Greater BLight Drone etc.
