The first expansion for Adeptus Titanicus adds 8 new Legios, 5 new Maniples and a set of basic campaign rules for linking your games of Adeptus Titanicus. Check out my full review!
Late this past summer GW reissued 'Adeptus Titanicus', a game which caused a bit of a stir for some geeks of a certain vintage. The new ruleset is great homage to the 1988 version - easy to learn, fun to play and very evocative of the Horus Heresy/Titanicus backstory. Perhaps the biggest drawback to the game's launch was the high cost of the models (actually, still very much a problem) and the weird way GW decided to release the various 'classes' of titans. The initial uber boxed set included only the largest, the Warlord, and the smallest unit, the Knights. This in turn made it virtually impossible for players to fully appreciate the tactical nuances of the game as the hulking Warlords usually just stood in place, trading long range fire while the Knights usually got plastered somewhere in the middle of the table. It took a few months for GW to get its act together and release both the medium Reaver and the scouting Warhounds, but in the midst of that gap many of us Titanicus nerds were looki
Happy Holidaze to all, and, for those that celebrate it, a very merry Christmas to you all.Over the weekend I managed to finish up three more Grey Knights - all command elements.From left to right a Brotherhood Champion, a Brother Captain, and a Justicar.Brother Champion Tyson - a Headquarters element for the Grey Knights (also a commander option for Kill Team). I put him on a slightly larger base to make him stand out from the others a bit. Unfortunately I two other metal Grey Knight Strike Squads off eBay and both include this figure as the squad's Justicar... Ah, well... They'll go on smaller bases...Brother Captain Alan - in Terminator Armour. A second Headquarters element for the Grey Knights. Once I have the two other Strike Squads painted I'll be able to field these as an allied "Battalion" Detachment. I have no real desire to add any more to this force.I don't know... I guess if some one GAVE me a couple of Land Raiders or I happened upon some of those old school metal Grey Knight Terminators...Justic
Check out the final weekly update for 2018’s On the Paint Table series. Tune in next week to see the review show and everything I painted all year on one table!
Like many in the hobby, I often enjoy modding the games I play. Whether its through custom markers, bespoke player aids, or with special rules to help drive the narrative, I really enjoy adding that little extra gloss to my games. Straight out of the box 'Adeptus Titanicus' is a very good set of rules. It's easy to learn, fun to play and most importantly (for me) does a wonderful job in conveying the flavour and spirit of the Titanicus/Horus Heresy fluff.Nevertheless, there are a few spots in the game experience which I thought needed a little help.The crux of the game is the players' managing their titans through the Command Terminals along with their associated plastic status markers and cards. The stock Command Terminal for a Warlord TitanAs seen above, the stock Command Terminals are very attractive and well thought out in how they organize pertinent game information for the players to interpret. They are made of heavy card, with small indentations pressed into the status tracks that match the n
The final part of my Adeptus Titanicus coverage is this "double feature" of the Warlord Battle Titan, one variant with volcano cannons and one with plasma annihilator and power claw. The Warlord - currently - marks the heaviest of the available battle titans for Adeptus Titanicus, is only outclassed by the even larger Emperor Class […]

So I kind of did this thing again...Um... yeah...So the Eritque Arcus Maniple now has a Reaver Titan - or it will, when it ever gets here!This means I'll be able to field a full Super Heavy Detachment with an Adeptus Titanicus faction keyword... of course that detachment is going to be 270 Power Level - or 8000 points - about the size of FOUR tournament armies combined!?Go Big or Go Home, right?Now what colour and pattern to paint it with...? I was thinking a bright turquoise blue. But what pattern? I don't want to do Cheetah spots - If I was going to do cheetah spots, I should have done it on one of the smaller Warhound Titans. Jaguar? How different is that from a Leopard? I was thinking "lion" at one point, but then there'd really be no patterning - unless I did something to make it look like it had a mane?Coming Soon to Tim's Miniature Wargaming Blog: Probably NOT the REaver Titan.. It'll probably be a week or two before it shows up.I should get those Mice and Mystics minis done...(hate that "S"
The second titan of the Adeptus Titanicus coverage is the Reaver Battle Titan, The Reaver counts as an medium class battle titan, almost twice as tall as a Warhound but still a lot leaner and smaller as a Warlord. Similar to the Warhound and Warlord, the Reaver has different produced patterns, but more dominantly different […]
A second, old Armorcast Warhound Titan arrived in the mail for me a week and a half ago. It's really all I've been working on since. By this past weekend I thought I'd settled on colours and had most of the green and purple painted...Then I decided the green was too dark after all...Not nearly enough contrast -and looked positively dull next to Pardus Purpura...And so I started again with MORE test bits and settled on a lighter colourAnd started all over again... mostly...I have to say I'm much happier with the lighter colour now.So this is Tigris Viridi. Commanded by Princeps Mozzer. The crew is rounded out by two Moderati; Moderati Joyce (Steersman) and Moderati Marr (Sensors, Communications, Weapons) and two Tech Priests Ro-Urk350 and Pom-Fret681.Tigris Viridi joins it's partner, Pardus Purpura in the Eritque Arcus Maniple of Legio Amare Feles.Pardus Purpura is commanded by Princeps Smythe. The crew is rounded out by two Moderati; Moderati Cooper (Steersman) and Moderati Gallup (Sensors, Communic
Let's begin with the Titans. The first review will cover the duo of Warhound Scout Titans, the smallest of the Imperial Titans. There are multiple patterns of the Warhound Titan, produced on Forge Worlds among others like Mars or the now destroyed Gryphonne IV. The here shown Warhound pattern is the Mars Pattern, depending on […]

With the 2018 release of Adeptus Titanicus, Games Workshop relaunched the series of the same name, 30 years after its initial release. Adeptus Titanicus covered the battles between the Titan Legions of the Warhammer 40,000 universe in a much smaller scale than the initial 25 later 28mm, the so called Epic scale, where an infantry […]
