It seems to have cables coming out the back of the gun, going somewhere. So in theory, yes? Could just be cover up bits for the ammo though.

Its awkward in that the two remaining arm weapons will require two separate plastic sprues at £15 each. Together with the resin Belicosa thats probably £45 for the three missing weapons.

If they were going this route then they should have gone for either the same two weapons on either of the reaver weapon sprues; Laser destructor & gatling, or Melta and volcano. This way a player wouldn't begrudge a single weapon sprue for the two missing weapons.

Also, the two arm weapons on the Warbringer sprue have updated sockets for magnets, which seemed to hint at an alternative weapon sprue.

To be honest this isn't a problem as any titanicus player will likely have reavers in their collection already. And if one doesn't savour the thought of purchasing a resin Belicosa, then maybe one can make an adaptor to mount a Warlord Belicosa instead?

I like what it does to the Warbringer's silhouette. Dunno why, but that looks more aggressive and balanced than the regular loadout.

More aggressive but less balanced. It's because 80% of the Belicosa is at or ahead of the mounting point pushing the gun level and forwards, while the quake cannon has the revolver assembly and rear block behind the mount so it tends to lift the barrel up.

Really weird, now that I think about it, that our last Engine Kill was a "did you know that Titans can be painted different colours" kind of article when they had this to show. Bizarre.

Feels like GW is planning their reveal scheudle really quite badly nowadays.

Games Workshop are not your friends. They are not a small dev trying their best. They are a multibillion dollar company making calculated decisions about how many costs they can cut, how lazy they can be about relases, and how much they can paywall. They will do it again. Stop giving them money for this.

I mean its 1 day after the reveal week.

I'd hardly say that its poor form to not spoil something that's going to be revealed one single day later.

Maybe the Warbringer didn't sell enough to justify the tooling for a second variant in plastic? Realise it's only 1 sprue they need to do, but maybe that's why it's FW and not plastic. Just a thought.

A bit of everything really....... And where's the icons for DUST Tactics, Firestorm Armada, Super Dungeon Explore, Sedition Wars, Relic Knights, Epic Armageddon????

Yeah, and if it's going to be revealed like, the day after, then why not put it in the actual reveal week?

Because its means people won't complain today when GW only "showed stuff we've already seen can't we see something new for release?"

Because its only one day later

Because Sunday is still part of the week

With a glass half full, GW are spared the hassle of producing yet another plastic sprue and keeping an alternative kit in stock. This obviously allows them to put that effort to other uses, such as a new scout titan or a knight.

Volcano cannon are laser weapon that drawn power directly from the reactor, it didn't use ammo, and theoretically can have unlimited amount of shot.

I must say that this effort by FW just doen't do it for me.

IMO, there are 3D designs out there that have a better feel.

On the base Warbringer model, it has two ammo hoppers to feed the Quake Cannon. These include sculpted ammo. My comment was suggesting the cables may connect up to some form of blanking plate to cover up the ammo.

Yeah, the kit must come with some additional features beyond the barrel to either replace or turn the quake magazines into capacitors, or whatever.

I am a bit disappointed that the VC version is a resin conversion pack, but will swallow it and hope for plastic corrupted titans down the line.

40k scale version. I assume the same but scaled down for the AT release.

Seems a reasonable prediction.

Hope it at least comes with the Turntable part.

If it has the capacitor banks like that I’ll be able to magnetise the thing like the quake cannon, no problem. It had better include the turntable though; there’s no built-in way to magnetise the mount there and I’m pretty sure the guns are different widths anyway.

Lack of an alt head is annoying. I’d rather not have two titans that are identical barring a top gun, honestly.

Luckily there are some decent third-party options out there. I'm using a Battlebling possessed head for my Warbringer. The loyalist one looks good too.

I haven't bought any FW guns and I have no plan of doing so either. I may get the FW Knights eventually though.

I see no issues with FW developing this other than the availability problems that come with FW. I'd like to pick up a VC for my Praesagius WB, but have no desire to buy another entire kit or wait for who knows how many months for the sprue to be released separately.

And *if* this saves them a plastics development 'slot' on the schedule and allows them to produce something else -- like an actual new Titan -- all the better.

Nope, just the gun, capacitors, and cables. Hope you magnetized your plastic kit the right way.

To be honest, I can’t see myself fielding a Warbringer with Belicosa, as I can make do with the Reaver’s slightly weedier one.

The Quake Cannon however? Yeah I can find a place given it’s other uses.
