Thing is we’ve had articles about using them in game which typically happen after a preview so I’m not sure what’s up with them right now.

If we do get a totally new Titan preview, what’s more likely, the hinted-at light scout precursor to the Slaaneshi titans of old epic, the missing Acastus variant, or something totally unprecedented like the non-Nemesis Warbringer variant that is implied by the existence of the Nemesis-type in the first place?


Complete guesswork on my part, but I feel like the Rapier scout has a certain synergy with the previously mentioned Kado campaign book. Which seems like a 2021 release for sure now.

So I'm going to bet on one of the variants coming first. A single Knight variant kit seems like an awfully light release alongside a campaign book. Possible that release gets followed up by one of the variants.

The Mechanicum Knight will most likely also see a release, considering they're on the cover of the upcoming Titanicus book.

Smart bets would probably be on the Rapier Scout Titan, which has been name dropped repeatedly over the last year or so.

I just wonder if that will be out in 40k scale first like the Warbringer. So long as it's not another year between that and AT scale...

we need some new titans in the 5-7scale. they could always surprise us by adding an entirely new chassis. Rapiers would be cool and maybe some new variants/weapons loadouts as well.

The terrain is killer and the manufactorum refinery is one of the best kits. so maybe an actual mining kit and some other thing?

Well, in fairness we are still waiting for full scale for a lot of the warlord and reaver weapon options that are available in AT.

Either ruins or fortifications like bastions and walls would be useful for the next set of terrain.

New weapon options would need updated datasheets for the relevant titans. It just struck me that the ideal time to put out either those or the Rapier in full scale would be when GW release the updated FW Indexes due sometime this year.

...and let's not forget that if FW keeps their typical pattern, a 2nd edition rule set should be within the next two or three book releases.

Eh, I don't expect that. We just got an updated rulebook in the starter set that includes the errata. That set was the game's soft relaunch already. And AT hasn't been what NUcromunda was. Besides, I don't think the SG team has the bandwidth to release a second edition anytime soon.

Regarding 28mm Rapiers first, etc...I dunno. Maybe? Or not. It's often hard to see the plan when FW proper is involved. The SG team has a more regular schedule and release dates. The AT Rapier will be released at its designated spot in the schedule near a campaign book. A 28mm Rapier would probably be released on some random Friday without any advance notice.

Warlord quake cannon, carapace Gatling, twin turbo carapace, carapace Vulcan already have rules in 28mm. So does the reaver carapace turbolaser, carapace vmb, and support missile.

I don't understand... Dakka is always telling me that GW don't make rules if there's no model!

Exception that proves the rule, maybe?

There's not a huge (Ha!) market (legitimate or otherwise) for 28mm scale Titan Weapons!

They are still sitting on the quake cannon for the warlord which was shown off as a render, and while it isn't the same as the AT scale one, the turbolaser on the Primus redoubt fits the reaver perfectly but fw won't sell it separately.

it's Ryza, so I'm gonna hope for more Mechanicus stuff. Or maybe a spaceport.

Spaceport would be awesome, and could crossover with AI as well.

Official word from ForgeWorld - via email - is that the designers do not adhere to any "scale" when designing their models. In their words its "Titanicus scale".

That said, the old epic models such as the Rhino and space marines look great on a Warlord's base. Just go with those.


Be that as it may, if you print out 6mm and 8mm tall regular humans, and place them next to the doors on the new terrain, the access hatches of the Warlord, etc, it's very obvious which looks more accurate (slightly more than 6mm).

Purely as a guide to would-be terrain printers, 6.5mm or so true scale stuff will fit better. If looking to purchase older epic stuff or from other companies, you'd need to take into account how accurate their scaling is in addition. Old Epic stuff was quite inconsistent in accuracy of scale, so some will be better than others.

They do have a relative scale, but not 100% accurate, they said that so people stop sending them email complain about their model being 1mm off the scale.
