Update Warlord No.326- Avatar Belli, 12-7-19

More progress from Paolo, though there was also some mild tragedy.  :)

"Hello there!
It has been a while since I updated you about my warlord. Unfortunately I had a major accident with it. The glue used for the legs completely lost grip and the titan felt to ground. I worked a lot to restore it and finally I found the time to finish the base that will support the new “twisted legs”. I promise while ago to give you updates once the base was ready, and now it is."


Great way to create a base.

The Warlord will definitely look like an imposing beast.

Love how this came out.

The grass tufts add a nice touch.

For the Emperor!

Beautiful shot.  You can imagine this being the last thing a traitor sees.

Adeptus Titanicus - The Knight Porphyrion

All information below courtesy of Warhammer Community.  This looks like they will be quite interesting in Adeptus Titanicus!

Adeptus Titanicus: The Acastus Knight Porphyrion

Acastus Knights

Hail, brethren of the Knight Households. There’s a new class of steed coming to your games of Adeptus Titanicus. The Acastus Knight Porphyrion will be joining your Banners next week, and today we’re taking a look at these largest of Knights, which will even the odds when your brave scions face enemy Titans on the battlefield.
Acastus Knights

Acastus Knights are the heaviest class of armoured steed available to the nobles of the Knight Households. Where Cerastus Knights bring speed and close-combat skill to a Household force, Acastus Knights bring raw brute force (and some really, really big guns). They stand just slightly smaller than Warhound Scout Titans and are almost as heavily armed and armoured.*

Knight Porphyrion
One of the two major patterns of Acastus Knights, the Knight Porphyrion is notable for its pair of twin-linked magna lascannons – among the most powerful guns carried by any Knight. These are capable of devastating well-defended targets and even piercing the armour of mighty Warlord Titans.**

Using the Knight Porphyrion

Like other Knights, the Knight Porphyrion can be used as part of a Household force or as a Support Banner for your Titan Legion. They can be taken individually or in larger Banners of up to four, combining their martial skill (and those very big guns) to hunt and bring down the largest of foes. Their heavy armour is represented by an astonishing seven Structure Points and the relative difficulty of scoring a Devastating or Critical Hit on them thanks to their high Armour values – they’re almost as survivable as the larger classes of Titan!

The Acastus Knight Porphyrion generally acts as artillery support for its fellow Knights, using its powerful weapons to devastate distant targets while its nimbler brethren close on the enemy to deliver the coup de grĂ¢ce in melee. In your games, the aptly named Artillery rule reflects this, increasing the Acastus Knight’s BS to 3+ if they’re issued First Fire or Split Fire orders – giving those twin magna lascannons an excellent chance of hitting with their 4 dice.

The Strength 8 and 3″ blast of the magna lascannon will utterly annihilate Knights and lighter Titans, and can give Reavers and Warlords a metaphorical bloody nose too – especially in larger Banners within a Knight Households force, where they can use the Coordinated Strike order to increase the weapon’s Strength to a potential 12, making Devastating and Critical Hits much more likely. That’ll teach those Titan Princeps to make an enemy of the Knight Households!

The Acastus Knight Porphyrion will be available to pre-order from this Saturday, July 13th, alongside Command Terminals and a host of other new goodies for Adeptus Titanicus. While you’re waiting for them, grab a copy of Doom of Molech – which contains the rules for using full Knight armies – along with some Questoris and Cerastus Knights, and start building your Household.

* Any Household scion will tell you that the Acastus Knight is vastly superior, requiring just a single noble to pilot it, compared to the entire crew needed to wrestle a Warhound’s bellicose machine-spirit into submission.

** It helps if their void shields are down first – pair up your Porphyrion banners with some Questoris Knights to knock down the shields, and you’ll have a better than even chance against the larger war-engines.

Adeptus Titanicus - Pre-order This Weekend

From Warhammer Community, we got some BIG news. What do you plan to get?

Noble (and not-so-noble) Heroes

The Horus Heresy is a time of legends, and that even extends to god-engines! Two new expansions for Adeptus Titanicus bring a host of famous (and infamous) Titans to your games.

Plus you can add extra tactical options with these Stratagem cards…

…while you can also show your support for Horus or the Emperor with these dice sets.

Whichever side of the divide you’re on, you’ll want to grab some Acastus Knights Porphyrion. Close in size to Scout Class Titans, their two twin magna lascannons will help you burn through enemy void shields in next to no time.

To keep track of your new Knights, you’ll need the Acastus Knights Command Terminals, which let you monitor the status, damage and weapons of your Knights, as well as the Orders you’ve issued to them each turn.

If you’re a fan of Knights of all shapes and sizes, make sure that you’ve got Doom of Molech, which features rules for fielding battlegroups made up entirely of Knights.

Update Hierophant Biotitan 1 - 8-7-19

Andrew of the Hive Mind recently shared some good news regarding his Hierophant, as well as some new pictures.

"Quick update, my Hierophant Bio Titan won Armies on parade last year both in its category and overall! It was also selected to be on the Forgeworld Website as an example for the product!"

Big bug!

Love the effects on the base.
An award winner.

Titan Owners Club UK Walk 2019 - Showcase pictures

Hi all

Here are some fantastic photographs from the UK event which happened on the 29th and 30th of June 2019.

The line up!

Pre-Start photographs:

Terminal maniple banners are revealed - Every kill will be immortalised for this and every other upcoming event, by adding kill markings to the chequers/diamonds.

Event dice were wrought!

Roller Banners for the Loyalists . . .

 . . . . and Traitors (so there is no confusion to which side you are meant to be on lol).

Kill Banners are mounted to the terminals.

Engine specific cards (scaled up to 28mm scale for measurement purposes) are cut out and mounted to the terminals.

 Dice bags were created to help keep the dice with the gamers. We actually made 4" - 40" D10 scatter dice too.

Siph Horridus ready for battle!

Lord Halfpenny repping Legio Crucius, ready for war.

 Variations to the rules are explained.

Then the now yearly tradition of passing the Tesarius Baton. The previous year's event general passes on their baton to this year's new Tesarius.

Colonel Hertford passes the title on to Lord Halfpenny.

Drake passes the Traitor's baton on to Lyden.
 The Tesarius test the strength of each other's hand shake. . . .

The initiative roll off and deployment roll.

The line up (not everyone had a Legion banner, but will when they are updated/designed by Forge World).

The Engines Walk

 The battlefield:

How the command terminals were designed / laid out. They were created in a way where it was not needed to flip the cards over when weapons were destroyed.

50% off Pizza order for the win!

The Loyalist Tesarius Baton.

The Traitors Tesarius Baton.

Thanks to all those who attended. We hope to see you all at the next Walk with more Engines for more Engine Kills!
