Titan Reinforcements Incoming

With the release of some new Adeptus Titanicus kit I thought that it was time to look at reinforcing the Legios. The boxed sets are proper bargains and I wanted to keep both factions matched in terms of forces.

So once this lot is built we should have

Legio Ulricon and Legio Gryphonicus

  • 3 Warlords
  • 1 Warbringer
  • 4 Reavers
  • 4 Warhounds

House Liagaun and House Coldshroud

  • 12 Knights
  • 2 Knights

Also bought some of the Forgeworld Legio Gryphonicus decals. Some of these tend to have short production runs so snapped up two sets whilst they were available.

So the two Legios and their support Knight Houses lined up for battle again in an urban Sector Imperialis environment.

First game of Adeptus Titanicus in months, but tried to play it “more properly” with the kids, selecting the Retrieval mission out o the main rule book.

Legio Ulricon’s Warhound picked up the stranded Titan crew from the central objective but took titanic damage being immobilised before being destroyed.

The rescued crew were relayed onto the Warlord that strode up to collect.

Victory to the Traitors! Tried the Arioch Claws and Sunfury Plasma weaponry in this game, maybe get the Quake cannons and Warp Missiles out next time!

Last game of the year with `Christmas just around the corner. 2019 has been a good hobby gaming year! Final news is sight of an early Christmas present, more titan weaponry and some of the new scenery for the industrial war zone that I am building.

Legio Ulricon Warlord: Astra Serpentes Defensor

So this one has been on the painting table for a while, but is at that kind of near finished state now. I don’t normally post work in progress stuff but this one is nearly over the line so I will make an exception. It needs some more inspiration and accessories for the base, for which a plan is forming. As such it’s going into the store room with the others until I get some Titanicus mojo back,

I wanted to try and get some dynamics into the pose. I don’t think Warlord titans readily lend themselves to this without a fair bit of modification and to get this one to work there is a fair bit of pinning to the base.

Engine on full advance. The head is custom, an amalgam of two types and I like the look that has resulted.

Sunfury Plasma Annihalator and Arioch Power Claw coupled with paired Turbo Laser Destructors. You’ve got to love the weapon names.

Adeptus Titanicus Battle Report 8: Titan Support

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.

    1. Warlord with Twin Volcano Cannons and paired carapace-mounted Laser Blasters.
    2. Warlord with Twin Volcano Cannons and paired carapace-mounted missile launchers.
    3. Reaver with Gatling Cannon, Laser Blaster and Carapace mounted missile launcher.
    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!

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.

Titan Head

Respect to GW for mimicking the original Adeptus Titanicus Warlord heads and making them available. Truth be told I think they look terrible. On that basis decided to try and make one look better and made this. Work in progress…

Titanicus Upgrades and Movement Trays

After a little waiting, picked up the weapons upgrade sprues for Titanicus, we’ll give them a whirl in combat soon. There are two Warlords under construction so some of the armour variants can be tested out.

All my 40k figures are in a big storage display cabinet. I decided that organising them all would be easier with movement trays so found a supplier on eBay and bought some to try them out.

Adeptus Titanicus Battle Report 6

The boys wanted a quick came of Titanicus so we though down a battlemat, scattered some terrain and grabbed a pair of Warlords each.

Two avenues created gun alleys for the Titans to bombard each other as they advanced.

Both pairs fell into close combat, despite neither being equipped for slogging it out at close quarters.

It was another short game, so we decided to call the results on damage inflicted.

Legio Ulricon survived the onslaught with the least battle damage.

Both Gryphonnicus Warlords took critical damage and limped off to get repairs.
