Nemesis and Nightgaunt class Titans next

Hi all

Let's talk Titans. So with the Warlord Dust settling now and the few hundred who have been blessed with the delivery of a Warlord Titan; getting to a point where their Engines are finished or need to take a break as their fingers are so covered in Super glue that they struggle to keep a grip on a glass of water, we look forward to what is possibly on the horizon. 

Head 2. This did not go down terribly well apparently, but was actually the head and shield combo that I wanted for my Legio Mortis Engine. It may never see the light of day, which would be a shame. 

Head 3. This went down very well and is my preferred head unit which has been showcased so far. 

Would love to see more head units be released, especially remastered versions of the old Warlord Titan heads from Titanicus. 

Apocalypse missile launchers are ready to be released which is good news. 

Darren Parwood mentioned he will be keeping the designing up on the Mars Alpha Warlord for a while, hoping to work on the Mori Quake Cannon and Sunfury Plasma Annihilator first. I am personally looking forward to the Carapace mounted Reaver Melta Cannons and Gatling Blasters. 

Sadly the old dog has not had much love for a while. I can see this changing in the not too distant future with a few upgrades / swaps. Originally in Epic you could stick Apocalypse Launchers as arm options, I would love to see this option being made available to 40k gamers. 

Ursus claws. It's got to happen. As depicted in Betrayer these weapons would be fantastic to be seen on the battlefield, especially if their rules are fluffy. 

Chin guns. As also in betrayer, some defensive chin guns were mentioned. Another cool upgrade that could come available. 

Nemesis and Nightgaunt:
I have been told that these two designs may be the next designs that could be developed with the success of the Warlord Titan with 3D cad. Now originally they wanted the Nemesis and Nightgaunt to get their own chassis back in the day of the Titanicus boxed game, but due to casting costs etc they never got round to it. So with this, these two Titan designs became loadout specific Warlord Variants, something which they never wanted to really happen. The Nemesis was to be a gun platform Titan, where it pretty much lugged around some of the more devastating weapons in 40k, whilst the Nightgaunt was to be a slightly heavier Scout Titan. The Nemesis is apparently the next Titan we will see, with the Nightgaunt possibly a few years later.

"I am afraid that the Imperator may be one for the Forge World costume department"

A little while ago I got involved in a group of gamers who have decided to set up a Club for Owners of the Battle Engines created and sold by Forge World. 

The club has been set up for owners of officially created Forge World Battle Engines to share their projects and works for the Titan loving community to see. It will be used as a repository, only sharing information you want to have shared. Ideally every Titan that has or will ever be purchased will end up recorded on this site, detailing:

Certificate number: what number it is certified as. 
Titan Name: The name of the Battle Engine
Pattern: The Chassis type (Mars-Alpha, Mars Pattern, Lucius Pattern). 
Head Unit: Warlord Titans only, Mars-Alpha or any of the new heads coming out. 
Primary Armament: What weapons the Engine is equipped with. 
Princeps: The name of the commanding Princeps
Titan Legio: The Legio it is part of. 
Maniple composition: what other Titans you have including official Certificate references, these will be linked to your other Titans. 

Owner: Your name
Location: Location of the Titan (preferably County/State and Country - but can be however you want it to be displayed including "Classified"). This will be viewable by anyone who enters the site and wishes to view your Titan.
Comments: Do you have any comments about the engine. 
Photos: All Photos you may have of this Titan (and Demi Legio / Skitarii Warhost), during any and every stage of it's construction, painting (including paint guide if you wish), showcase pictures (preferably against a white wall etc) and Battle Pictures. 

To join the club email Titan Owners Club with the following information. 
Certificate number: 
Titan Name: 
Head Unit: 
Primary Armament: 
Titan Legio:
Maniple composition: 

Hope to see more of the Community's Titans on there soon.

  1. Yeah, if I could get a Warhound with Ursus Claws/magnetic harpoons, that would be fantastic. It's a tactical role for Warhounds that was really unique in the books, and that we just haven't seen an equivalent of in the game.

    1. Yeah I know. I think the Blood Slaughterer Impaler had a set of tethering rules. Have never fought one but always thought it would be interesting.

    2. This comment has been removed by the author.

    3. It might not be a simple arm option, though. Syrgalah and the other Legio Audax Warhounds had full arm loadouts as I recall. You'd almost have to do it as a carapace upgrade I'd imagine.

    4. Possibly. But the Image above with the Warhounds and the Corinthian Imperator show them sporting a single armed weapon launcher.
