Is that confirmed? Couldn't find that in the goonhammer review,

Also, just got a vortex template off ebay

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

Queue price spike! They're perfect for this. If anyone is of a mind, feel free to message GW and tell them to make more!

For the record, I don't have any for sale. My one is ready for my next game...

Got my Metalica transfers, Marshal Loss is going to play some loyalists!


Welcome to Metalica! I'm wondering whether I should get a second sheet, just in case. I probably won't ever use up my first one, but if I pass it up and end up needing more transfers once it's no longer available I'll be irritated with myself.

I've got a Warmaster, the battleforce and the new book on the way from my favourite indie store. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the battleforce, my Metalica collection is already overkill - but it could be even more so!. Alternatively I might be tempted to use the titans to start another Legio.

Look like there're 2 knee guns and 2 knee missile pods, so there're some leftover.

One little detail of interest, like the Warlord, it looks like it has the sockets for pistons that run from the body to the shoulder (they’re on the pieces with the side doors), but not the pistons themselves, which only appear on the 28mm version of the Warlord. So definitely looks like it’s been designed at 28mm scale.

So does the Gryphonicus change also happen in the hardback rulebook, or they're just too lazy to reprint it? I think it's the latter.


Of course you do - if there's a negative position to take, you'll take it.

I imagine it'll depend on whether the individual rulebook is a new printing, or whether it is stock from earlier printings. If a new one, then I'd hope we'd see any FAQ or errata from the rulebook applied to it.

The most interesting thing to me with this release is that both the GW store listing and the box art quite prominently say Warmaster Titan 'with Plasma Destructors'. Seems to be a pretty clear suggestion that there are other main arm guns in the works.

There's a 'review' of the new book up on Titan Owners' Club, where they say that it's the exact same hardback from the original 2018 release. (Review in quotes there since there's not much for them to say about it aside from 'it's the same book as before').

Well spotted! A 28mm version will be an absolutely huge kit, I imaging easily double the price of a Warlord. I wonder how many they'd sell - the Warlord has been out for 5 years or so, and the certificate numbers just recently broke 1000, so they've been moving Warlords at about 200 per year. But if the Warmaster is double the price, and (in my opinion) doesn't look as good... Though having said that, it's definitely growing on me. I remember thinking the Reaver was ugly when Forgeworld first released them (what, 10 years ago?) and now I love them.

One thing to consider is that when they released the Warlord, they said it was pushing the limits of what resin is capable of. I'd suspect that the Warmaster would breach that unless they come up with either a lighter, stronger resin or some kind of metal support skeleton to keep it from collapsing under its own weight.

Isn’t the rule book in the starter set updated? I expect they’d at least be using that version.

The book in the starter set is updated, but this one isn't. It's literally the one from the OG rules set, just repackaged. From one of the reviews:

This is the same book that was in the original Adeptus Titanicus Rules Box, and I don’t even mean a reprint, this is the exact same book with a sticker replacing the product code with a new one!

That’s… very bizarre. How is it they even still have the files for that version? Sometimes it’s like they just don’t have a functional CMS…

Beginning to wonder if a revised rules set is on the way, and they are clearing out old stock to make way for it?

I think it's probably just because they have a lot of rulebooks left lying around from the old "rules set" (that came with the templates, etc), and this gives them a way to get rid of some of them for people who don't want to buy an entire starter set and just want the rulebook (which hasn't been available in the past). I don't think a revised rule set is needed/on the way beyond what we already received in the starter set, but it's not impossible

It looks a lot better with those 3 silly shields removed.

Those are the banners, and it's cloth, not shields.

They look rather shield like, doesn't seem like cloth. Either way, now you can see the really cool castle things they were hiding.

That Warlord volkite gun looks really cool, I want one regardless of how good the rules are. I still haven't picked up any of the FW guns, really need to at some point.

They've got the same riveted metal trim around them as all the other armour panels.

Nothing I'd like but its been a good month for AT all the same, and certainly the "titan-fix" needed right now. Quite similar to the Warbringer release...

Going forward it would be nice to see something in the medium size. We now have three large titans with heavy fire power and four close-combat knights.

Titans could do with a melee solution, while knights are now back to square one by relying on support titans for firepower.

Video by the guy that painted that Gryphonicus Warmaster, answers some questions about the kit:




Particularly worth noting that the arm weapon magnet holes are 6mm diameter rather than the 5mm found on Warlords.

Here’s a comment from Hennsteele of Cult of Paint on magnetisation of the Warmaster:

the arms are an easy magnet, 6x2, recesses already there. The armpit weapons you’d need to do a little trimming but nothing hard. And the revelator launcher just sits in the top, no need for glue or magnets.

Could be that they've hit a production snag and need to delay a week or two.

Wonder if they plan to release the Volkite stuff alongside the Admech codex the week after.
