It looks like my group is getting into Adeptus Titanicus in a big way, and I don't think we are alone, so I thought it might it be fun if we posted what projects we are currently working on. The idea is that with lots of ideas getting passed about, you might just get that last bit of encouragement it takes to get a model finished!

Bonus points if you back up your reports with photos of work in progress and the finished articles!

To start things off, I have already posted pictures of the first Warlords of Legios Mortis and Xestobiax, but this weekend I polished off the first knights of House Malinax:



Normally I pay homage to the Church of Duncan on how to paint things, but he has not covered House Malinax yet, so I had to strike out on my own - I put some painting notes together here, for those of you interested: https://ttgamingdiary.wordpress.com/2018/08/21/house-malinax/

So, what have you all been up to?

I fear you are alone. AT was the first GW game that nobody ordered in my local GW store. Nobody! There won´t even be demo games in the store. GW was successful in pricing out the whole local community. LOL!

I’ve got a warlord and a box of knights that arrived today so will be working on them, been looking forward to this for months.

If he’s alone how come I’m here? How come there’s other posts on here about the rules and models? How come grandmaster edition sold out in an hour? The price is exactly what I expected and that’s fine totally worth it, and who knows when the reaver and Warhounds come out they might release a cheap started box.

Warlord partbuilt, ready for painting.

The number of the thin coats shall be two, and two shall be the number of the thin coats.

May crack on with building my Knights today. Currently bingeing Clone Wars, dehydrating Mango, and need to do some washing up ready for a fat old fry up tonight.

I have the Warlord mostly built, just waiting on some 5mm magnets to turn up for the arms and missile launchers, though I suspect that in the end I'll only swap out one of the Volcano Cannons for a Mori Quake Cannon. Knights are also fully built, they're a really nice kit to put together.

Not sure when I'll get to paint them though, concentrating on my Dark Eldar for a tournement next month for the moment.

I've finished my first Knight banner from House Atrax, but my Warlord is still nekkid:

My warlord intimidates me!

Mostly because its a very expensive model that I actually want to do right! I've a feeling I'll only get so far with construction until its rather like Andrews and naked and then end up stopping. I'll have to get some knights so that I can not only have something smaller to finish but to also start work on finding a good paint scheme and then steadily build up from knights to hounds to reaver to warlord.

Warlord will suit neatness over technical ability.

Provided you get a smooth under or base coat, you should be dandy

But I've got neither of those as yet!

Must say I still love the little defensive guns on the Warlord; was something I first saw on the old Dawn of Water Winter Assault in the final mission where the Imperator (damaged and downed) had defensive weapons on it you could fire (on that they shot straight through swarms of necron and their obelisks). I think it eve had them on its arms not just on its chest/legs which I thought was a neat feature

I'm in this in a BIG way, AT was the game I played most as a kid so you'll understand the motivation in trying to replicate the 3 day, 25 titan battle that still represents my favourite gaming memory (29 years ago....)

Have 6 warlord skeletons built so far, 4 more to build and have 2 unofficial reavers and 2 unofficial warhounds I'm going to finally get painted, hoping to play the first game next week before my kids go back to school. Been buying up a lot of n gauge buildings which might not suit the aesthetic but are cheap and look great and have a new purpose made mat for them to go on so nearly ready to go.

Can we also just a wee second to be thankful that we’re not having to deal with dodgy ankle joints?

For those that had the old Beetle Backs, broken ankles were a very real pain! But now we’ve got five lovely anchoring points!

I'm actually surprised they didn't make the toes of each foot a moving part as well considering how the leg can be fully posed and the angle arrangement is REALLY neat

Possibly just a faff too far?

Possibly, but would make standing on other surfaces for a raised leg on a base a bit more easily posed. Esp since they went as far as to put detail on the underside of the leg, so they fully expect some to make in-motion walking titans.

Still its a fantastic kit; knocks socks off the old metal one I have (in other news anyone want vintage stuff?

Nobody else bought it at my lgs either, game was doa in the community. I did buy some knights though got them built up, even drilled out the gun barrels....which was kinda stressful cause there is no room for error...cause no spares if I mess up. I am unsure how i'm going to paint my force, I guess I have some time to think about it...no sense in rushing until the warhounds are out.

Hopefully once you've got a few titans painted up and on the table you can coax some others into the game locally. I think some might have been put off by the price; but I think others just didn't know what they were getting into - heck hte Warlord is a fantastic kit in itself, worth owning even if one isn't going to game.

Yarp.

The cost of an army is actually fairly modest. Warlord, couple of Reavers, box of Warhounds. All in, should easily weigh in under £200.

The closest equivalent I can think of, in terms of scale, would be Warmahordes (even then I may be wrong). Yet a Warlord is easily twice the size of your standard Warjack, and a more accomplished kit. Without being intimately familiar with them, from memory it’s more the size of a Colossal - and a better price.

The release itself is also closer to AoS than say, Necromunda or Blood Bowl. Can easily prove a grower as releases come.

Thanks, might take a while to get to 50, I'm a pretty slow (lazy) painter.

Speaking of which, am interested to see how everyone else is painting theirs, painting the skeleton first seems the most expedient but painting the armour separately is a bit of a pain.

I agree about the price but what I really like is that its a little like a Bloodbowl team, once you have a Maniple for example that is a fairly comprehensive force you could play with for a long time and will certainly come in cheaper than a 40k army for instance.

Cheap to switch it up too, especially if you’ve magnetised.

I didn’t bother, but for those on a tighter budget/possessed of more sense, that’s an appeal as well. No need to buy more than your core Titans when the weapons are easily switched up.

For me magnets on the main weapons just makes sense and I'm actually REALLY pleased to see GW thought of that as well. Whilst they haven't put magnets in the box, they have put slots in the weapon slots designed for magnets. (5mm diameter, 2mm depth).

You might only buy 3 or so Warlords ever and field them at once, but with magnets in the arms you can at least change the composition of the weapons you choose to take as much as you desire.

This adds so much versatility and whilst one might glue down one or two more highly posed or just for ease; I think having one or two magnetized ones around will be very good value for any player.

I don't want to get off topic or derail the thread but could someone direct me to where I might find out which Knights go with which Legios?
I know nothing of the fluff and I'd like to paint things correctly.

I also suspect the spectacle of the game will help sell it.

The one thing they didn’t do enough with was showing off the size of the Warlord. Sure we had pics, but precious little reference.

For us Sad Old Grognards, they could’ve put it next to the old Warlord and Imperator Titan - because this Warlord is a serious piece of kit! But without that, it was hard to appreciate it.

Now, once we see games being played, I really think people will be blown away. Models. Tactics. Overall gameplay.

At the moment I think your best bet would be to trawl through the 40k wiki pages on the various Forge worlds, Legios and Knight houses, as well as any big battles/campaigns. Fingers crossed it wont be too long before we get some kind of lovely background and campaign book.

I just collected my GME today and aside from just grinning like an idiot while unboxing Ive only just started assembling the buildings.

Will get around to the actual models soon enough but told myself I would finish my Killteam before I start anything else.


What a fantastic game this seems to be though, cant wait to try it out!

Got a box of knights, damn these things are cute!

Quite small and fiddly tough so handle them whit care. A bit limiting wep options but i guess thats allright for a unit that is just ment as flanker/harasser/distraction.
Never been mutch for lore so it will have its own colour, i just need to find the time first.

But i have a question, who is that will actualy sell the game past what we have now at release week? is it GW or is it FW?

edit, knights ready for painting

It seems all of the plastics and the core stuff will be sold through GW, just like necromunda and blood bowl. Any resin upgrades or off the wall bits they do will probably be forgeworld.

The Knights are pretty cool. Built my three yesterday, and they were a fun build.

They may also prove, following further releases, a cheap way to vary your Legio. Questoris are useful, but what when we get the lanky FW chassis? Those tend to be a bit more specialised, and I can imagine the Lancer being really quit’s popular.

Just want to see the pricing on the Reaver and Warhounds now. I’m suspecting both will be around the £45 mark, but that’s just speculation.
