Just found this video where someone has a brilliant setup for magnetizing the Reaver...




...the drilling is a bit too fancy for me, but still wish I had gone to that length...

Now THAT is an epic army!

The troops and tanks give the Titans a better sense of scale.

That's how it started lol, but thanks all, still need to get the knights done and some of the tanks/speeders and the stormbird, that thing is huge.

Done some more on the first Reaver; silvered up the weapons and added more detail to the base. Will get a second gatling/powerfist sprue so that he can do dualies, and obviously the forthcoming carapace resin weapons.

With so many left over pieces I'm pondering the possibility of a third, DIY warhound. Started to design it in a 3D package , but will take a while to build. I might do a bit of disgusing here'n'there, such as his feet having dug into the ground while cotton-wool smoke hides the legs and rear carapace.

Weighing up the future; a new( custom ) maniple of three titans. At the moment I'm thinking of a melta/chainfist Reaver, a DIY Warhound and - although not released yet - a Warbringer. It would share weapons'n'cards with the Reaver, and already has a 40K version so he seems likely to be the next Titan. We will use Venator maniple rules, but a custom Legios with just the rule to replace a Titan with a Warbringer.

Played a game last night, which was really good fun. It did raise a mystery though, which is connected to a previous discussion for the Castigator's bolt cannon...

There is the rule where a weapon with a strength of 3 or less is ignored when attacking against void shields. The Questoris avenger cannon seems to be used for knight-warfare rather than titans with a strength of 3, and it would seem the same for the Castigator bolt cannon also having a strength 3.

Yet, in White Dwarf( December, 2018 ) it says that the bolt cannon is ideal for stripping void shields. Is this an error or am I overlooking something?

White Dwarf is mistaken in this case.

I thought so. There was nothing I could see in the rules that would give it such an ability.

Considering the castigator's point cost( 20 ) compared to the load out of a Questoris avenger+melee weapon( 10 ), it makes one think that there has been a slip up somewhere. And I doubt they can increase the strength to 4 as that would make the bolt cannon a vulcan mega bolter with an extra dice for attack...

All the same, thanks for clearing that up!

Yeah, currently the Str 3 weapons do nothing against Voids.

Buuut...

Doom of Molech is coming up and some leakers say that the new Knight Lances made of several Banners get a new Order, that allows them to do coordinated attacks which increase the Strenght value of their attacks (not just modifying the Armour roll). If this is true, then Avengers and Castigators might actually serve some purpose as tasty shield rippers. Personally I remain sceptic until I get the book in my own hands, but we'll see.

Hi all,

Apologies if this is in the wrong place but I've decided that disposable income is for suckers and am getting into AT. The question is where to start. The Princeps Collection looks promising...everything I need for a full maniple (I think I'm using the term correctly), rules, etc. All I would need are some knights to get me going. This a good plan?

Thanks!

Apart from swapping the buildings for Warcradle's Factory( big enough to cover even a Warlord ), yeah...its good. Cerastus Lancers are fast and lethal for melee assaults on titans...

Yup. Basically if you have the rules set with dice and terminals and ~4-5 engines of varying types you're well on the way. Just make sure to have a pile of suitable terrain at hand, it makes the game shine both mechanically and visually.

Many thanks! The Warcradle's buildings are really nice. What about the more shooty knights? Are they a good purchase?

At the moment the current knights are best used for melee, although the Flame Cannon( Cerastus ) and Fusion cannon( Questoris ) seem very effective weapons. Unfortunately, until we get either variants or resin upgrades, you have limited choice in armament( model-wise ).

I recommend you use Warhounds for that role as they work well with Knights, as a forward strike team. Warhounds strip the shields( Mega-bolter or Destructor ) while the Knights move in for the kill. Sorted!

Nice! A one-two punch combination. Too bad about the shooty knights, I prefer those models.

Well, there are Knight House battles where they could be useful and maybe something about Giant-reptile hunts. Titans aren't the only game in town...

Its not hard to envision that fella chasing after a Titan yelling "Com'ere ya big baaa'sturd! I got somethin' for ya!"

Excellent work on the conversion.

Do you have any other photos I can take a look at?

What version of Epic are you using them with?

Assembled the bodies of a Questoris banner. I might combine them with the other banner as freeblade support for a very small Lance.

2 Lancers
2 Acherons
- Acastus.
6 Freeblade Questoris.

...no idea how many Acastus in a banner, but one needs a heavy unit, especially against Titans.

I was going to do something similar but instead I just Xeroxed the page that has the orders listed, made 10 copies so I'll just cut out the text boxes to use as order tokens.

Finally got some more painting done, as Aurora Terribilis marches to war. No more falling over mid-battle for you, mr. I-can't-be-glued-until-subassemblies-are-painted!

The carapace looks a bit weird as it got done the way it is after I managed to glue a magnet in the hole wrong way up and couldn't get it off anymore, but I like having bit of variation in the force (though it should be pretty obvious that missile pod is not really meant for this engine, I just painted it at the same time ).

More pics in the plog.

Coordinated Strike gives a +1 (or +2 for Janissary Maniples) to the armor rolls. It gives no bonus to stripping Void shields.

You're confusing things, those are very different from each other. You're talking about Titan squadrons, which indeed gain +1 to Armour (or +2 from Lupercal, Janissary is the one that allows double actions with Knights and Titans) just by attacking it simultaneously whereas Household Lances get a new Order, where the Banner that has the Order attacks with only one gun but gains +1 Strenght for each contributing model in the Banner. This is mostly useful with the Avenger, which has 8 shots and Rapid. Even a single Knight can now strip shields with it, a large banner can shoot one Str 9 Avenger
