Do the water slide transfers release usually with the book or the week after? I have waited so patiently for Legio Hororum (The Death Bolts) for so long.

The one I'm hoping for aside from Demon Titans is the Rapier Titan - which is apparently an even smaller Scout Titan than a Warhound. Wondering how this could work, I'm wondering if it having a speedy profile and a SINGLE Reaver Arm quality weapon on a dorsal style mount wouldn't be a great idea? I could see there being a place for something like that.

They've mentioned it d laid groundwork for it. Note Legio Audax being restricted to scale 6 and under, not specifically Warhounds One would think the Rapier could be coming soon...in AT release terms. But who knows?

That's an even bigger crapshoot. Some have gotten transfers before their rules. Most wait for some time. Makes little sense but that's FW.

Adding to what gorgon said, not all the Titan Legios who have rules have got transfers in the past either. Whether they will eventually or not, who knows. None of the Shadow and Iron Legions did, the ones that released with that book were for 2 legios that haven’t got rules even in this book (Metalica and Ignatum) and one from the 2nd book (Astorum).

IIRC, both Rapier (Scout Titan) and Warrior (Reaver+ sized) have been mentioned in fluff.

Hoping for more Titans in the first half of 2021.

So it was one of each on a sprue. Makes sense as to their packaging.

In addition to creating a custom legio there are also rules for expanding Knight houses, in DOR. Not sure whether these will make Households better or worse and feels like a "fool me once, fool me twice" situation after Molech, so hopefully our friends will do some video reviews over the next few days, focusing on this. If Households could be improved I would be on board again, otherwise I shall just wrap up the one I have with the C-variants and leave it at that.

Just noticed that DOR was momentarily showing a price of £26.50 but was swiftly changed to £22...phew! That was close!

As the Warhound seems to be a fire-power( the claws and spears aside ) titan, I wonder if the Rapier is going to be a melee focused titan to counter knights?

Well they talked about other scout titan classes as precursors to the old slaanesh scout titans from 90's epic. One of those was equipped for melee, so it's possible.

Well, ordered the book from my FLGS, and the cards direct because I had to. And because they aren't going to stick around long...the NA warehouse seems to get about 15 packs most times.

That would be perfect. I would LOVE that as an Audax player. There are reasons why I have Cerastus Lancers in my current build. Other people might not love me if I had access to a melee Titan however...

What is the Ursus Claw?

Fire the Ursus Claws! If you’re a Warhammer hobbyist, there’s a good chance you’ve heard this somewhere, but just what does it mean?

Before long, players will be launching Ursus Claws of their own on Adeptus Titanicus tabletops thanks to incoming upgrade kits from Forge World. But what is an Ursus Claw? Why does everyone want one? Today, we’re investigating the issue.



Ursus Claws were first introduced by Horus Heresy loresmith Aaron Dembski-Bowden in a small but awesome section of a large but awesome novel Betrayer. For those who haven’t embarked upon reading the Horus Heresy series, Betrayer tells the story of the World Eaters’ fall during the Horus Heresy, following them through a brutal campaign amid the core worlds of Ultramar. We first see the Ursus Claws in the hands of the Legio Audax, used to staggering effect against a rival Titan.



Throughout the book, we see Titans, and even the World Eaters flagship – the Conqueror – use Ursus Claws, with terrifying results. Since then, players have dreamed of using these weapons for themselves. With the rules in Shadow and Iron, plus the upcoming Ursus Claw upgrade kit, soon you can!



Need a refresher on the rules for Ursus Claws? Check out our previous preview! While you wait, why not grab some Warhounds, and get them built up and ready to upgrade?

If you’re looking to keep up with the latest Adeptus Titanicus goings-on, we’ve got good news. The Forge World Facebook page is being transformed into the Horus Heresy Facebook page – the best spot on social media to discuss all things Age of Darkness from tiny Titans to Horus Heresy armies.

Do you print them out already on the stands as a single piece or are they on bases that you assemble into more conventional unit stands?

Usually I print the minis in resin and the bases in fdm, so separate.

Advance review of Defence of Ryza book:


   
Made in gb
Longtime Dakkanaut




Cheers for that Zedmeister - been waiting for a preview before ordering.

Going to hold off on the Cerastus box as I've got this strong gut feeling I will regret it at Christmas( which has been the case the last two years )...

Defence of Ryza seems to be an semi-Annual of updated white dwarf articles, which is good for those who missed them. The Knight standards probably make it worth while, but to still not see any new Titan-Knight maniples other than the Dominus - which is over a year old now - continues to be a disappointment. Speaking of which, it would be good to see a custom maniple feature in a future expansion or WD article, so players can pick the titans they would like to field rather than waiting for GW to drip feed them out four at a time.

Not sure what to expect for the rest of the year, but ts been pretty good so far with two titans, two expansions, a box of knights and the incoming Ursus Claws. And thats not even mentioning the fantastic new starter set and factory scenery. Somehow, against all better judgement, it'll be quiet for a while and then around early November we could see a new Titan, ready for the new year....

Review of the new Cerastus Knights...




...for the price of what is basically two lancer sprues in a single box with no discount, they could have included two such thin terminals. If the Acastus didn't have that stupid auxilary rule I'd rather get another pack of them instead.

It's been a good year to date, no doubt. Even if we're still waiting for the UClaws and transfers, cards, etc. from S&I.

Still seems a little...imbalanced?...given how much stuff we got for S&I and how little is accompanying this book.

So unless I'm misreading something, Magna's wargear doesn't actually work?

Any Legio Magna Titan armed with a weapon with the Melta trait may be equipped with a Directed Pressure Outlet for +10 points. Each Melta weapon the Titan is armed with must be upgraded separately. A Titan equipped with a Directed Pressure Outlet adds 3" to the weapon's short range.


Melta weapons don't have the "melta" trait, they have "fusion"
