Titans Clash at Warhammer World

A giant Horus Heresy game recently hit Warhammer World and Titans of several stripes were in attendance.  You can learn more about this mega battle here.


It sounds like it was quite the battle, and it may provide future inspiration for a TOC event.  

Secutarii in 8th Edition- Forge World Responds

BigJon recently got in touch with Forge World about the Secutarii rules and their status in 8th Edition since many have noticed that they aren't in Imperial Armour- Index: Forces of the Astra Militarum.  Here was the response he received:

"Hi Jonathan,

Thanks for the email, As far as we are aware the Mechanicum Sekutarii and the Ordinatus that all had a warhammer 40,000 stat sheet will have a new data sheet in the forth coming Forge world campaign book Fires of Cryxis.

We are requesting that the rules team release these data sheets ahead of the book release as it would be great for all of those that own these units to start using them as soon as possible.

Whilst we wait for our rules team to get back to us regarding this we would ask that you bare with us as it may be a few weeks before we hear anything further.

Until the New campaign has been announce and released we are not sure what other Mechanicum units will make the leap from the 30k universe to the 40k universe though we eager and exited to find out.

Please keep an eye on our community forum updates and Facebook posts for all of the latest and official announcements regarding rules and products.

Thanks again"


Is this welcome news, Princeps? Or is it heartbreak in the process?  Let us know in the comments section what you think.

Update Warlord Titan No.326- Avatar Belli, 22-6-17

Paolo finishes one part and swiftly moves on to the next.  The torso has been furiously worked upon and a flood of pict-captures has followed.  The Omnissiah will be proud.


UPDATE PICTURES:


It begins not with the other parts, but the magnet!





The slow process of a ton of glue, clamps, and rubber bands defines the torso box build.


But it leads to giving the Warlord even more character.





More and more parts get added, slowly.






Comparatively few gaps, a very well done assembly.


Now Avatar Belli really takes shape.



Starting on the shoulders.



Very strategic use of pins for strength.


The proud owner shows up yet again!





The Rite of Colours beings on the torso.






All the base metal is down and washed.



And the weathering begins.



Further weathering and now the addition of the brass type metallics goes on.



Plenty of attention to detail, as always.




And now the lenses see work done as well.



Even areas that will be obscured or hidden by the shoulder pads receive the same amount of care.

TOC Warlord Mentioned on Warhammer Community

Today, Adrian O won the Warlord Titan in Forge World's giveaway and you can read about it here.

A special note about the interview is that one of our own was referenced as the cause of inspiration for the chosen color scheme.  

++BEGIN INTERVIEW VOX THIEF++

What Titan House you intend to paint it as?
I’m not sure at this stage, I only have loyalist armies and xenos (heresy I know, but you need something in your showcase for the mighty armies of the Imperium to crush) so probably a loyalist Legion. However, the paint scheme for the Carrion Rex done by Jonathan on The Titan Owners Club may persuade me to go with a Legion of less repute (I may just have to write some fluff about a maniple that remained loyal to the Emperor).

++END INTERVIEW VOX THIEF++

Congratulations to Jonathan M. and Carrion Rex for being mentioned in the interview and being an influence to your fellow Princeps.

Here's the engine in question, and there's no doubt about why it inspired another Princeps.

Update Reaver Titan No.2028- Invictorus, 20-6-17

James was happy to show off the progress on his Reaver recently and the fruits of his labors are evident:


UPDATE PICTURES:



The Rite of Construction involved the use of strategically placed pins.



Setting a pose to stride into battle.



Already the engine has a powerful presence, and the magnets will help with transport.



On to the Rite of Colours



Very rich blues and well done golds.



Looking great and the weathering is superb!


A clear cut allegiance, and love the marble work on the white.
