Adeptus Titanicus - New FAQs

It had taken quite some time before GW put up the first FAQ and Errata for Adeptus Titanicus.  However, as the company has been making all of its games a "living system", Titanicus no longer feels like it has to wait forever.  Some balancing has occurred, including on the dreaded Acastus Knights, and we have new FAQs.  

https://www.warhammer-community.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/212979b9.pdf


The highlights:


  • Clarification on what composes a unit.
  • How often stratagems can be used; which is to say only once unless a rule explicitly changes that.
  • Void shield mergers and what can cause them to be "broken" based on certain in-game effects.
  • Legio Fortidus modifications to account for the Warbringer, which is to say that's the only Titan they cannot use for a swap.
  • Clarification of Titan reinforcement for Knight Household armies by saying that Titans can serve as a support element to Knight armies.
  • Adding in the Bypass weapon trait, which was MISSING from Shadow and Iron [Whoops - TOC]
  • Points changes to the Acastus Knights and limiting the banner size to max of two.
  • Limiting Acastus Knights to one Banner per Titan maniple or Knight Lance.
An interesting note is that the FAQ shows that the WBNT's "Weapon Critically Disabled" doesn't come into play yet.  We know there are more supplements to come, so it seems that GW has begun to future-proof the game to an extent.  Perhaps we'll see this come about at the same time as the Corrupted Titans.  There are far more items in the document than what we've listed so go check it out, give it a read, and let us know your thoughts.

Adeptus Titanicus - Engine Kill Article on Two New Weapons

Yesterday we got some coverage from Warhammer Community regarding the upcoming Ursus Claws and Natrix Shock Lances for Adeptus Titanicus.  New Warhound weapons that will make the battlefields of your teeny-tiny Titans even more interesting.  While we will do a review of these weapons later on, we wanted to at least let you know you should check out Warhammer Community's article.

https://www.warhammer-community.com/2020/02/25/ready-the-ursus-clawsgw-homepage-post-1fw-homepage-post-1/

One thing to note though is that they have definitely shown us pictures of actual models using the ACTUAL weapons.  The only question is how long before we get them?


Update Warbringer Titan No.59 - Divinum Castigatum, 26-2-20

Divinum Castigatum progresses nicely:

"Finally got around to putting some coats on the Warbringer. Went for a marble look on the grille to break up the blue, yellow, and gold on the head as well as the body. Also included is an update on the body. It’s table top ready but there’s still cabling and details to pick out all across the Quake Cannon and weapons. "

UPDATE PHOTOS:


Superb marble effect.



It looks even better framed by the gold.




That is a very lovely looking Titan, and this is just tabletop ready?

Update Mars Warhound No.5917 - Canis Immortalum, 24-2-20

Word from the Princeps:

"Here are WIP photos for titan 5917 or canis immortalum. I do apologize for lack of a light box. Been steadily building her up, finally working on the top half, and i have a plan for the crew in the head, so that will be forth coming. Some details are the engravings on the pistons, along with the oil effects. I plan on finishing it soon, so finalized photos should be coming in soon!"

UPDATE PHOTOS:


Outright amazing looking work and the armor trim is just flawless.



Like the carapace there.



Some specialized script work on the pistons.
