I thought I'd throw this out as possible sources for models/terrain/bits etc for Titanicus. I for one am really stoked for its return.

While the initial game will not have infantry or tanks (popcorn as one giant monster game called them) they can always serve as terrain or players can look at Net Epic or other options. Or just terrain for the titan bases.

So...

The two companies that come immediately to mind are Vanguard and Reaper

Vanguard

http://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/

Vanguard has been carrying several 6mm sci fi lines for a few years now, with some grim dark styled tanks, troops and robots.

Their new line of plastic 6mm terrain is a definite buy for me to build massive boards and city scapes. With AT coming that's now a must buy for me.

http://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/product-category/terrain/troublemaker-games/



Each panel is 50mm on a side.

Then for tanks and troops

http://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/product-category/defeat-in-detail-6mm/





http://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/product-category/defeat-in-detail-3mm/
3mm but should still work



http://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/product-category/microworld-games/



http://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/product-category/onslaught-miniatures/





Reaper

I'm not a huge fan of Reaper's CAV line, but it's Bones and cheap so if you're looking to add some tanks and trucks for terrain it should work.

Other ideas? What scale is 8mm in models or railroads? There might be useful products in that direction.

http://theminiaturespage.com/ref/scales.html

6mm Equivalent to 1/285 scale and 1/300 scales. Miniatures in this scale have the advantage of being inexpensive. The small size also means there is less visible detail to paint. In this scale it is possible to put armies on the tabletop which give the impression of masses of infantry. Figures available for fantasy, historical, and science fiction. 1/268

1/220 Z scale (model railroad scale). 7mm

1/200 Another scale in which 20th Century armored vehicles and aircraft are available. Some WWII era recognition models are made in this scale. 8mm

10mm Relatively new scale, used for fantasy, historical and science fiction. Some think this will be the popular scale of the future, larger enough to show detail but small enough to fit a large army on a tabletop. 1/161

I've never seen the source for this "8mm" thing, so I'm going to wait until I've got a model in my hand before I start looking for alternative terrain. Having said that, I'm hoping the 10mm stuff I've got from 4Ground will be suitable, along with similar offerings from other MDF manufacturers.

If it is 8mm, my understanding is that "mm" sizes refer to the height to the eyes - the default height to the eyes of an average human being assumed to be 1610mm (from an assumed average total height of 1730mm or 5' 8"). So 8mm would be about 1:200 scale. The closest model railroad scales are going to be N scale (1:160) or Z scale (1:220).

Good to hear, these are attractive pieces of terrain but for titans they'll basically be speed bumps. The massive cubes of the city tiles make for cities that are a bit unimaginative (which is OK, I see the Imperium as being pretty unimaginative) but will block line of sight nicely. Maybe a knight can get some cover from the resin sets but not much else.

PS - if we can get some straight symmetrical pieces they'd work for all sorts of BFG scratch builds. Just throwing that out there.

Hah, I love the idea of fleeing civilians on the board! Might have to think of some way of putting that together for AAR photos..

Nuclear Shrimp miniatures do a great Gargant if you want something to go up against the titans. Quite reasonable priced compared to a lot of the old GW Gargants you now see on ebay.
They're big as well (bit bigger than the Mega Gargants) so would hopefully scale well with the new AT size titans

Whilst terrain is always ace, I'm waiting to see how the stuff produced specifically for AT pans out - both in quality, and size.

AT is about how you manoeuvre your forces, with a distinct onus on keeping out of LoS when at all possible. (at least, the original was!)

So nice as the above sculpts are, if they can't hide a Warhound or Reaver, they may not be right for the game

The plastic set I linked to should do the job



Each panel is 50mm, so twice the height of an AT Knight, maybe up to the head of a Reaver? 2 panel high buildings will hide a Reaver and give good cover to a Warlord.



At 20UKP for the set you can cover a table pretty quickly, with the box set terrain added in. You can also do just walls rather than buildings to stretch them further.

Of course insulation foam hills and mountains are always there are a budget option.

Difficult ground is useful, too - a direct route to the enemy, but you might get bogged down? (either in light buildings like these or in unpaved ground like wilderness or parks where your Warlord sinks to his ankles in mud.

Anyone know of any good 3x3 or 4x4 gaming mats suitable for this game? I've found plenty of urban ones but they always seem to have detail that is upscaled, one even had human shoeprints at 40k scale in the dirt. The resin tiles from forgeworld aren't going to be in my budget range, plus a mat can be folded up, I don't know where i'd put huge resin tiles that need to be protected from dust and cat hair.

I definitely plan on using the buildings they are coming out with for the game cause they look great. Apparently this game is going to need plenty of cover and terrain for the smaller titans to operate normally. My initial plan is to lay out plenty of buildings across a mat that could represent istvaan or a heresy mars conflict.

Love that GZG vehicle transport - think that would look really cool with a couple of rhinos on it, as an objective or something.

Those plastic sets Kid-Kyoto linked are really good and most importantly very cheap - can see those being a popular option on tabletops for AT.

I wonder why nobody has mentioned terrain options from Dropfleet Commander yet (or did I miss it?). The terrain is scaled at 10mm, so might be a bit on the "too big" side - on the other hand that makes it easier to get actual cover even for larger titans.

I consider the Ruinscape Card Scenery Pack to be the best compromise between price, looks and playability. It gives you a generic city board with "battle damage" in colour and easy to set up right out of the box, can cover up to 6'x4' table space and offers a huge variety of setup options - all for less than a squad of Space Marines.




It might not be for everybody, but it is very affordable and incredigly easy to use.

N Scale (1/160) is a bit bigger than 8mm (1/200) but there's tons of stuff.

And bigger means more line of sight blocking.
