So after the scouting part of knights came back to base having lost significant numbers the mighty god machines of Legio Gryphonicus spoiled up and strode forth to fight (and hopefully repel) the traitors.

    1. Warlord with Sunfury Plasma Annialator and Arioch Power Claw with paired carapace-mounted missile launchers.
    2. Warlord with Twin Volcano Cannons and paired carapace-mounted laser blasters.
    3. Warlord with Twin Volcano Cannons and paired carapace-mounted missile launchers.
    4. Reaver with Gatling Cannon, Laser Blaster and Carapace mounted missile launcher.

After advancing from the backfield deployment zone the Titans approached the central square of the imperial sector.

Blasts rang out as they opposing forces rained volleys of fire against each other. Void shields fell and were relit. No real advantage was being taken and the advance to the central objective – a Warlord head containing vital intelligence – continued. A traitor Reaver reached the objective first, but could it hold the objective until the end phase?

Supporting fire came in from the Legio Ulricon Warlords as the Loyalist closed ranks around the objective, but critical damage and failed shields was a ticking bomb.

The Reaver could not with stand the onslaught and detonated the resulting blast was bad news as it plus the toppling Titan hit the loyalists that had just dealt the death blow.

Fortune had it that the damage from the exploding and falling Reaver caused a chain reaction in one of the Warlords which in turn fell into its own ranks.

It was at this point that time was called on the battle and agreed as a draw. Cracking game!

Adeptus Titanicus Battle Report 7: Knights Attack

House Liagaun vs House Coldshroud

Decided we wanted a quick game of Adeptus Titanicus so grabbed one of the printed scenery mats from Warhammer 40k Conquest and a few buildings and other scenery to play through.

Round 1 saw three units of 3 knights fielded by each side. This was a matched play game with all knights fielding the same weapons.

There was plenty of line of sight blocking terrain between the centre of the board and the deployment zone but Knight weaponry isn’t long range so the only option was to advance.

C

A couple of rounds later the centre of the board had become a lot more interesting. Knights were in weapon range and both players chose to tactically conceal a unit to keep them free of incoming fire.

The House Liagaun knights waited in hiding then ambushed the loyalists, it was six in six. The shooting then melee began! On the flank the other units clashed under a hail of fire before also charging one another.

Citizens of the sector looked on as might war machines laid into each other with precision fire and huge roaring chainswords bristling with adamantium teeth that chewed into ceramite plate.

First blood came on the flank as the Loyalists combined to slay one of the House Liagaun knights that had dared to stand before them in combat.

In the centre field the House Coldshroud knights began piling into melee combat.

Yet fate through cruel luck their way and blows missed their mark or were deflected by ion shields. Suddenly the tide turned and successive loyalist knights fell.

The end came as the traitors out numbered their former comrades 6:4, the loyalist commander signalled the retreat and the knights tactically retreated to call in Titan support. The traitors had established a foothold in this sector. The advance must be stopped!

Modular Titanicus Ruins

So I bought these for terrain from eBay but was disappointed with the finish. They were very badly cast and in the end I received a decent partial refund.

Much action with the Dremel and they came out passable as ruins.

I decided that I wanted to be able to make them a bit more versatile so made up some ruins that can be run stand alone…

…or as ruined upper floors.

I think that they came out okay.

Now it’s time to start playing some more games!

I am now working on an industrial zone complex. Lots of home made buildings here.

I have some nice ideas about how to make some unique bespoke terrain so will look to progress over the months ahead with some more builds.

Bloodthirster of Insensate Rage

I’ve had one of every Bloodthirster model GW have made. This is my favourite to date.

Assembly wasn’t the nightmare I had feared and I left the armour off until everything else was painted.

Worked on the armour to try some metallic shades I had not used before. I am pleased with how they came out.

Might come back to the base. Not that happy with it…

Next up An’ggrath who has brought unfettered destruction to the Imperium, with countless worlds falling beneath his axe.

Gregster’s Lab Terrain for Adeptus Titanicus

Last year I invested as part of the community in an Indiegogo campaign to create some more scenery compatible with Adeptus Titanicus. I’d bought some of Gregster’s Lab stuff previously and really liked it.

Several months later everything is cast and the order has landed. May the building and painting begin! Here’s an unboxing video

Bloodletters

I decided to increase the size of my Bloodletter units from 8 to 10. Having 40 means I can always have 5 squads of 8 if needed.

When the new ones turned up it became clear GW had rebased them all up from 25mm to 32mm. Sensible as they were pretty unstable on the small bases. But it meant I had 36 Bloodletters on the wrong bases sizes.

Rebased the lot. This time using some popin adapters that had been 3d printed – much better that the two part adapters I imported from the USA.

All done with movement trays and they came out well. I bought a Bloodmaster Herald of Khorne model too and freed up another older model to use as a Skulltaker. Gives me some options if I need to have a couple of characters to use as well if needed for future Army lists.
