That's usually a cut/paste artefact when combining several different versions of a section

Yeah, that's how it reads to me (the AI writer / Indian sweatshop journalism was hyperbole), def looks like someone in some office has taken 10 minutes to copy / paste sections from one or two different articles to make a 300 word news story, hasn't even bothered to re-read it, literally no-one else wants to check it, hit send. The ubiquity of it annoys me more than it should.

Anyway, sorry for this half page of OT, please resume your AT talk.

Weapons! (Looks like it's a single weapon with the front swapping out as needed. Some clever magnetisation will see you well)

Wow, that was up early. And $18 for one...ouch. Of course, I ordered six, LOL.

Still...Ursus Claws!

That looks like a very tiny join area even just for glue; let alone fitting a magnet neatly in there.

Strange, you'd have thought with AT having more magnetic options in general might have made them put the join area further back into the body of the weapon so that there'd be sensible room for a magnet.

If not interchangeable then why not just do them as a pair, considering hounds come as a pair anyway.

Magnet isn't the only way to do option. Pinning would work fine for that weapon.

You could be quite clever and, if you're magnetising the arm to body joint, you could clip off that bit sticking out the front and drill deep into the weapon. Next, using a metal rod of a similar diameter to the bit you clipped off and that is attracted to magnets, you can use the joint magnet to hold the weapon in place

Thats a good idea, zedmeister.

Thanks, it's a bit of a fudge and won't be as strong as direct contact, but a long enough and thick enough rod should be good enough to keep it held in place

Anyone else not happy to see they don't come with weapon cards?

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

Would have been nice for the price. But I printed some out and put the backs and fronts into card sleeves. All my weapon cards are already in sleeves, so it works fine for me.

That's really it, if fw is telling me to print my own, I may just go ahead get the whole thing printed on my own, arms included.

None of the FW weapons come with cards - but the rest are in the main decks. Perhaps drop them a message asking about it?

I did and to their credit someone responded on facebook saying essentially TBD in terms of cards. I dunno, unlike the stratagem cards that are mostly just helpful reminders and something you can easily hand an opponent, the weapons cards seem sorta more integral IMO, especially given that I've spent so much already on the command terminals and extra weapons decks for each titan. The warbringer to its credit at least came with cards in the box. It just feels like if a company I'm willing to give money to is telling me to scan a book and print cards myself, I may as well get the arms printed myself too at this point.

The price isn't much different than the Shapeways bit, IIRC. Might have informed their pricing decision, actually.

Edit: Would have been nice to get the stratagem cards for S&I, but I guess GW is skipping that one? The Ryza set is cool, but the bulk of the cards only relate to custom legios. I'll chalk it up to the same holy mysteries regarding the AT transfers. *shrug*

I can see more card sets released as the range grows and could lead to "Scout titan" and "Battle titan" card sets, as weapons are shared. Afterall the Warbringer is doing that already and will most likely have individual weapon sprues sooner rather than later, that won't come with cards.

To be honest, I reckon there’ll be a colour sheet with the cards printed on them in the blister pack. They do the same with Necromunda.

That thing looks so similar to a screw I don't know why you'd bother. Just pick two cent screw in hardware store, some wire, clip front of Warhound flamer off, glue together and it will look so similar after painting you'd need to look at it under a microscope to spot the difference

I was thinking about potentially getting into this game. What are the size of the minis?

Just done a quick measure of a Reaver, warhound and Questoris knight...

Reaver: 4.0 inches (including carapace missile pod)
Warhound: 2.5 inches
Questoris: 1.5 inches (without rocket pod)

...goes without saying that the starter set is definitely the way to go.

it's the best game they currently make and the minis kick ass!

the starter set is a great value and way to start out.

I'll say another kind word for the starter set. Insane value, in canadian dollars, you're getting about 280$ in models for 180$, not to mention the rulebook, dice and weapon cards, templates, arc templates and stratagems (those little bunkers). Only thing you really need is the card command dials that are about 30$ cad. The ones in the starter aren't great.

I think COVID and the lack of in-store gaming has hurt the spread of AT. The game is a great demo. Looks terrific on the table, and it's easy to pick up the basics and start understanding the crunch of the gameplay.

Except for the fact that GW stores don't carry AT and at least in our GW shop they prefer that you not use their limited tablespace for Specialist Games...or Middle Earth.

We have a dedicated group that plays at a couple of FLGS shops, but since most of the product is Direct only...it is the business model for marketing AT (and others...looking at you Blood Bowl) needs to drastically change.

Was talking about FLGS. Thought I read that select GW stores will start carrying more SG stuff as a test.

I figure for GW the test is if their production back end can support the volume of production for keeping things in stock. Which would make sense if their new factory comes online, but might all be delayed due to Corona restrictions and such.
