Completed:


Augusti Fortuna in all her glory.





Awesome shield with Emperor transfer!


The other shield sports the heraldry of Legio Kurogane.

A mean looking visage.

Princeps Rex preparing for war!

So I hadn't seen it until Shadow had mentioned it, but the markings on the head are the same as a Clone War Storm Trooper character.



Metalwork looks great.


The Engine shredder.


Look at those exhausts. Need a sweep lol.





Ok there are some more Star Wars references!










 Some Sunfury love!



Congratulations on finishing your Engine Shadow. You done good!

Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus - A New Foe Approaches!

We have been in touch with our friends at Membraine Studios and we're excited to tell you that something amazing is coming to Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus. Several of us are still assisting them with this game as we've been doing since the alpha and we can tell you that this new development is definitely worth it!

Want a hint?





Want another one?


From Membraine:

"The mighty Banelord of Khorne is now available to Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus Chaos players! This possessed Warlord-class Battle Titan is armed with the terrifying Hellstrike Cannon and the Doom Fist for epic close-quarters destruction. The Banelord is now available for selection by all Chaos players in both single- and multi-player games. BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!! SKULLS FOR THE SKULL THRONE!!"

Having already fought this fearsome foe we can say that it's powerful, mean, and befitting of the master of the Skull Throne. Hop onto Dominus and give it a go when you can. If you haven't already purchased the game you can get it on Early Access through Steam where you pay one price and future updates just get added to your copy as they go.

Titan Banner Tutorial

Hello, Princeps.
Today we have a tutorial from Princeps Josh G. regarding how he created his Titan banners. After seeing the request from other members he's gladly sent us this tutorial for you to peruse. Unfortunately, we can't get it to format and play nicely with the blog, so you'll have to go here to download the tutorial.

Adeptus Titanicus - Downloadable Knight Command Terminals


Downloadable command terminals? Yes, please!  The below came direct from Warhammer Community, so it's definitely a good day.

If you’ve been inspired by the new rules in the recent Adeptus Titanicus expansion, Doom of Molech, to build your own Knightly host, you may have noticed that you need an awful lot of Command Terminals for your Household. Today Thomas Clarke, one of the game’s writers, is here with a solution…

One the most exciting offerings in Doom of Molech is the opportunity to field a force consisting solely of Knights. Though each Knight is weaker than any single Titan, the assembled might of a Household can tear apart a full Titan maniple with massed firepower and unbreakable courage.



When building a Knight Household you’ll need at least three Banners – enough to form a single Lance – and this number grows ever larger as games increase in points. While you can never have too many Knights, the space required for Command Terminals becomes larger and larger as your Household grows and in the grandest of games you may find yourself running out of table depending on your space.

Well fear not, gallant Knight Scion, for we come to you with a solution. Since the release of Adeptus Titanicus and throughout the evolution of the game, our Sacristans have been working hard to bring you a new way to marshal your Banners upon the battlefield. And here it is!





Today we’re releasing a downloadable PDF of the Knight Command Terminal for both Cerastus and Questoris Banners, as well as one for each of the three classes of Titan currently in the game. They’ve been converted into a handy smaller format. Nothing has changed but the size, so they’re not designed to replace those Terminals you already have, but rather to supplement them. Simply print them off and use them like any other Terminal.


This is particularly useful when fielding an entire force of Knights, as it allows you to easily add additional units to your collection. If you find yourself wanting to split a Banner, or add different Knight patterns to test how a new army plays, then these Terminals are the solution for you. What’s more, you can easily expand the size of your games, allowing two Households to fight for glory without wondering just where you’ll put all those Terminals.





So gather your Banners, strengthen your Household and get ready for battle – fielding Knights in Adeptus Titanicus has never been easier.

You can add new Knights to your collection now with the Questoris Knights and Cerastus Knights boxed sets.

Titan Literature Review- Gates of the Devourer



TITAN LITERATURE REVIEW

Story: Gates of the Devourer

Format: Short Story

Length: 20 pages (ePub edition)

Source: https://www.blacklibrary.com/warhammer-40000/quick-reads/gates-of-the-devourer.html

The Plot: The war of Khania begins with the stars falling and a strategic undertaking of the Imperial Navy, Katarn Spears, and two Titan Legions going horribly awry from the outset.  The early stage of the battle for a planet is set and the Imperial Hunters and Legio Pallidus Mor must find common ground and deal with a deadly foe.

Titan Focus: David Annandale comes back to his work in Warlord- Fury of the God Machine to provide a bit of extra backstory.  It’s a short story that gives us the first battle for the fate of Khania, which is only briefly mentioned at the start of the novel.  However, there is nothing new about the Legio Pallidus Mor or the Titans.  All it does is show how Syagrius got off on the wrong foot with his new allies and gives us a bit of bolter porn.  Perhaps the highlight is a fight that forces the Warlords from the two fractious allies to work together. 

Score: 1.5/5 Cogs

Final Thoughts: The story doesn’t offer much for Titan lore itself and only reaffirms that which is already known from the novel.  The characters continue to remain fully two-dimensional and there is never any real sense of danger, especially since the story was released after the novel and you know what will happen.  In truth, this is filler material that could have easily been placed in the main novel and instead feels like a “DLC” moment.  If you want to know more about one of the fights mentioned in the novel this short story is worth it from that standpoint, but otherwise, it’s not necessary to understanding the novel.
