Adeptus Titanicus at WarhammerFest

Hi all

Adeptus Titanicus will be previewed at WarhammerFest on the 12th of May. Hopefully this means we will be seeing some of the Engines and Knights on display and given the opportunity to see more of the contents of the box. 

11am in Seminar room, hopefully will be given a ton of information on this new Specialist game. 

3pm will be a Tacticae. Hopefully this means we can see a game in action and see Jonathan and Owen duke it out on a fully furnished board :)

It would be great to see the gaming area with some Adeptus Titanicus tables and the rumoured Rogue Trader game. Silver Tower, Necromunda and 8th Ed all had participation games at recent events. 

Pure Speculation:
What will we see? I would like to think we will see the Forge World Adeptus Titanicus Terrain tiles. Would be nice to put a figure against how much I need to save!!

The new 40k 28mm Titan. I think we will see this Engine. It is apparently bigger than a Reaver but smaller than a Warlord. It may have a Warlord grade Weapon Carapace mount and the usual Reaver grade arm weapons (I would expect the arms to be the same design and mount as the Reavers too to save processing/warehouse space). I can imagine seeing this in AT scale too at the event. 

Adeptus Titanicus box contents. Well the original game had 3 Engines per side. I imagine this game would be the same. Personally I am envisioning 2 Reavers and 4 Warhounds in the box. A decent set of ruins would be key too! So a perfect selection for a Battle Maniple. 
I can imagine the plastic Knights will be sold separately to keep the price down.

Adeptus Titanicus additional items. I would like to think they will showcase the gaming boards they made for the game. I can imagine being shown additional Knight chassis packs for the range (Cerastus 5 Pack and Porphyrion 3 Pack), being shown a new chassis of Titan (28mm version too) and another Titan design or two (Nightgaunt and Mirage). I would love to see a modular siege wall which can be destroyed be shown off. 

The next Primarch: I get a feeling this will be Sanguinius now. I did think it would be the Lion, but with the Daemon aspect in the upcoming book it kinda makes sense to be Sanguinius. 

Space Wolf Priests and the Deathsworn. I’m almost certain of the Deathsworn being there. 

It’s a very exciting event and I am thoroughly looking forward to it. 

What do you think we will see?



  2. If Sanguinius is the next Primarch, then my Blood Angels can get started in earnest! And my wallet will wind up being quite a bit lighter by year-end.

  3. I wonder if we can get an actual reason for all the last chance to buy items. Especially all the legion stuff

  4. So curious as to your ideas on the box AT box content? Why not add two Warlords and make it two full maniples to face off?

    1. Hi Jon. If it is 10mm or 8mm, Titans will be circa 1/3 of the side of what they currently are (28mm/32mm hero scale) so a Warlord would be around 185mm in height. An Imperial Knight in 40k scale is circa 180mm. That means the Warlord could be in the region of £60-£70 per model. Knowing how much space it would take in a box (thinking about the Renegade boxset) I cant currently imagine there would be enough room for another 4-6 Engines in the box (taking price into consideration too). All speculation though.

    2. Good point, and I was also thinking of box size, but I also remember the StrongPoint box if they go that size. I can only hope that it will received support Like Necro/BB in that the starter box will have two reasonable sized forces to play out of the box with add on boxes available right away to grow that size. Some maybe release AT along with stand along box Warlord to add to it.

    3. Whato, At 8mm - 1/200 scale, a warlord titan is about 16cm high to the carapace weapons. The Knight is 16cm to the top of the shoulder pauldron. That makes the titan stil big, but just a touch smaller than a knight model.

      (Sorry, I'm a bit sad).

      Either way, they're going to need lots of parcel tape to hold the boxes I want to buy together in the post. Mr Seta, of Warhammerfest doesn't present it, please throw an infantile tantrum, fists banging, legs flailing on my behalf.

      If they do sell it - by some miracle - I'll courier you my credit card.

  5. Fires of Cyraxis! Please.... and another 40k Daemon Primarch, perhaps Fulgrim the Serpent since the AOS serpent ladies came out recently, he could have design cues from them? I saw a rumour of 40k Leman Russ the Viking Pirate King returning, but maybe it was wishlisting. I want to see the Imperial Knight Dominus.
