So based on defense of ryza, it seems like knight magaera and atrapos boxes will be coming at some point. I guess the atrapos will be the first to make use of the vortex rule.

Do you play 30k? It'd be a lot cooler if you did.

good, I cant wait for the Atropos, best looking cerastus chassis variant. Itll be interesting how they incorporate it and the Magera into the game.

For a game about Titans, it's been remarkably heavy on Knight releases for the last year.

Hoping the coming year will remedy that in the form of a new Titan class.

While I like the AT models, I think a lot of this is simplicity.
They have the 3D renders for knights already, so adding new ones isn’t a huge process and the main design is done already.
Designing a new titan from the ground up requires far more work.

This isn’t a defence for them as the releases are painfully slow, but it’s just the reasoning that I think may cause it.

I’d honestly expect to see armigers and hells shortly too.


They are missing an easy one though.
They have an entire history of epic to draw from in terms of options and weapons.

They can also branch into chaos if they are keeping with old titanicus but want to stay with the current titans they have.

It was catch up after a very long and frustrating delay, and we might not see those new knights for a long while. I'd say we might see one of them this side of christmas at best.

I'm surprised to see so little on the forge world side of things. I understand it's tough to conjure up titans out of nowhere but they could have been doing armour kits and bits for legios. One big thing missing is banners, be great surface area for transfers or free hand.

There's a lucius pattern warlord file set with optional corvus arm on a few sites. Very high detail, could use it as powerfist for the time being I guess.

Yeah, I fully expected to see a lot of this kind of thing from FW for AT. However, when you look at the contraction of the upgrade part in HH...maybe that's a business they don't love anymore.

Got the book, read the book, pretty nice. All legios are interesting but not overtly powerful, knights got a nice bone in various standards they can use to trick around with and the custom legio rules seem to be made with more sense this time (Auxiliary Shields, Elite Magos, Multiple Warheads etc. have been tuned to be less borked and freely selectable existing traits and wargear options from established legios is no longer there). Allegiance rules make sense and don't really affect the power balance in any way while added stratagems aren't must-have-powerhouses. But finally, you can select the direction to Fall over in for the cheap price of 1 stratagem point, huzah!

Colour plates of various Mechanicus knights as well as the four allegiances for households being imperial / traitor / mechanicum / blackshields, but nothing concrete on that front.

The Custom Legio rules are great; significantly expanded and smoothed out, I’m still in analysis paralysis mode, mostly because I want to take all the missile options and drown the enemy in explosive death but you’re only allowed two wargear traits. Two or three shot vortex missiles are looking fancy though, as is the “I can’t believe it’s not a Barrage Missile Launcher” Apoc ML upgrade.

Models aren't, but familiar pictures of things like Magaeras and Atropos are shown in the colour plates.

In case anyone was wondering/uncertain, the Stratagem cards set for the new book does include all the custom Legio strats as well as the new generally available ones.

Dont need gaming tips, tricks & modeling stuff, so if you take that out it's just an overpriced advertisement. The pics are cool but not worth the price of admission.

What is truly missing from the AT books is photography of actual models. Even with ryza, gaming content is great but the art is lacking, the monochrome blue everything is only broken up by a few really nice art pieces. It'd just be nice to see some more photos of games/boards/titans. The game already suffers a bit in that it's a little too historical for its own good and the matched play is meh, I feel like it'd be easier to draw players in if it was a little more visual. You see so much creativity in terms of modelling and paintjobs and conversions of knights and titans online and very little in the books. Overall though it's a great book in terms of gaming content.

I sorta wish the card deck literally had everything you needed to plonk down a custom legio then and there. It would work to provided they printed enough cards for all options. Basically you select a combination of traits, stratagems and wargear to form ur custom legio. 4 total, can't have more than two from any section and can't take duplicates unless the strategem specifically allows it. But basically had they printed them all it'd be nice and quick. Anyway, really cool system for custom legios alone makes it worth picking up imo, can't wait to give it a try soon.

Yeah, I think the book seems full of solid stuff. I mean, I'm not wowed by anything in it. But it seems pretty well-balanced (at first blush), so that's a real positive.

While I get that the lack of more overt art can be a bit meh in comparison with GW's normal house style of filling everything with it, I really like the fact that these Titanicus books are mostly chock full of gaming materials because I end up lugging most of them around for actual gaming. I would buy a lore / art heavy black book styled tome, too, but this is nice.

Doom of Molech was disappointing in that respect; Knights battling destructive mega-beasts in dangerous environments, but no Power Loader vs Alien Queen style art to fuel that fantasy.

I don't think anyone wants these books weighed down in art and fluff, but the odd piece of art work can make the book feel that little bit more special.

Totally fair point, I just wish they'd, for example, choose one of the scenarios each book show a batrep of, right down to pretty pics of each side's forces. Dedicate a good chunk to it and use it to refference new stuff, like for ryza they could do a very forge world looking board and highlight some of the new optional terrain rules. Its great to read about the terrrain on ryza but I wanna see it too. I wanna be inspired by the cool things they do with the AT terrain. If not a batrep at least a hobby section with some world building stuff. Also, not a new complaint but as nice as the paint swatches are, I really wanna see actual models with amazing paintjobs. Like back in the day, if I showed my friends a page from a space marine codex with all the different chapter paintjobs its something that'd pull them in. The at equiv is me describing what all these god machines looks like and it just does the game no justice. I'd love to see fw commission the guy they had doing a lot of their necormunda character paintjobs to do some legios for them.


Did a quick initial look at the custom legio rules if anyone's interested. https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/60/787202.page

Maybe they should do a "art of titanicus" book at some point.
