Or a Legio Titanicus book that consolidates all the legio sections s from the HH black books and the fluff AT books with some new art and color plates.

Nice to see some artwork of the more esoteric stuff like the internals and cockpit of titans, titans being re-paired or having weapons re-configured. Princeps and moderati of different legios, especially on the more corrupted and heretical side. Maybe some more artwork for titans of legend.

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

That'd require effort. They couldn't even make a proper imperial armour with blueprint and technical information of vehicles like the old days. Nowaday it just rule and some flavor text.

It's a shame, the highlight for fw books was always not just the detailed retelling of campaigns but also cool composite art and maps.

Ya that's where I'm at, at least recycle the cooler stuff. I'm finding so many images on google image search that I've never seen in gw publication.

I dunno. To me, the black books were never really sustainable where the AT books definitely are.

They sustained the Imperial Armour books just fine. And the AT books are a fraction of the size of the black books, chucking in a dozen extra pages with some plates, cutaways, and artworks isn't going to suddenly make them unsustainable. Marginally less profitable for GW if they wanted to continue releasing them on the same timescale, maybe, but you'll forgive me if I don't weep over the idea they'd only make 90% of loadsamoney instead of 100% if the result is we get a better product.

Just to provide a counter view - The AT books are perfectly formed. nicely priced, look attractive (I'm not bothered like some about different looking spines) and there is plenty of colour artwork of titans. They've got this one right.

I'm honestly baffled by the idea someone wouldn't want a good thing to get even better.

Well, it depends on your idea of better, surely?

I think there was a point where on the 40k side codex's focused too much on showing "the product" and felt too heavy on photography and too light on art. This seems to be too reliant on colour swatches of titans and knights. There's literally only 4 pictures of models in ryza, they're on a single page at the end and it feels like they forgot to take them out because the opposing page is blank. At the minimum I'd like to at least see some more photos of actual painted knights and titans, bonus if it's a shot of an actual game.

I'll put it another way, there's this cool section of the ryza book on new terrain rules to represent a forge world. Not a single picture of cool terrain the team whipped up using existing kits, that just seems like no one's even playing it at GW. It's a shame. The recent white dwarf the previewed having an AT ryza battle report was welcome news, it's like "oh there are GW staff that actually play this game, sweet".

I’d rather see the colour plates of the titans, honestly. I can see painted titans all I like online. Edit: obviously I’d be okay with both, but if I had to choose.

Given the limited scenery and lack of coverage for the game, a few articles on building AT scenery - from scratch and incorporating kits - is something they could have done in White Dwarf. At the very least it would have encouraged the artists amongst us to add some knights or titans to create dioramas - SALES!!!

May be a bit late with this one. I've finally got round to bulding my Warbringer. I'm convinced we'll see the Volcano Canno variant soon. After putting this together, I've noticed there are pipe connections that are not used (see below) and pipes on the sprue which should fit here in the holes, but they wouldn't fit onto the head. So I'm convinced we'll see a variant which will use these connections for a different head. Also noted is all the weapons are on a single sprue, making a swap out like the Reaver and Warlord pretty easy to do.

Also noted the arms are not compatible wiht the Reaver arms due to the cable connections. Everything's magnatised, just in case they release the weapons sprue for the variant like the Warlord and Reaver.

Yeah I assembled mine with the arms and cables glued and I'm regretting it. Gonna have to snap the connection real careful. So the other version is different weapon set and head entirely, which is good cuz I'm no fan of the original head. I changed mine to a warlord head and I feel it looks way better for it. I really hope the aa part of the ardax gets a stratagem or wargear upgrade in the future to be able to counter strafing run. I wonder if the AA turrets will be different too on the next version.

Those pipes are apparently replacements for the pipes between the crotch and legs if you choose to position the legs differently to the default pose (though it doesn't tell you that in the instructions), I also initially thought they might be for the head as the full size version has pipes there, but apparently not.

Looks like the Ursus claw and shock lance is up for pre order on Friday. From the preview vid on WC:

Must say that it was starting to drag on waiting for the Ursus claw.

In hindsight, its a shame there wasn't an alternative weapon sprue for the warhounds, as there was for the Reaver and Warlord. True, the hounds didn't actually need one and the Ursus claw is just the odd-resin kit, but for hound-lovers everywhere that would have been a treat.

Ah, yes. As my Legio is Warhound heavy, I'm looking forward to experimenting with these.

After two teases -- one 6 months ago and the other 1 month ago -- they probably didn't feel the need to promote it again.

Well, that or they've casted up 18 copies to meet the worldwide demand and so are trying to keep it on the down low.

Is there really a command check to be made? So thats what that was on the terminals!
