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.
Titan Owners Club is up to 35 Engines now. TOC is posting one new Titan a day currently.
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.
Demi Legio: The name of the Region's Legio detachment (If you are first in that Region you get to name). It is the equivalent of a squad / team with other Legio members in that Region.
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.
Currently there are Engines in the club from Australia, USA, Singapore, France, Netherlands and United Kingdom.

Hello and welcome to the Titan Owners Club's Global Battlefield.
These maps show the geographical location of our club member's Titans across the globe. They will be updated once a week to inform the community which regions are under the control of Loyalist and Traitor forces. A region is either a county, state, province or territory depending on the country in question. A grey region represents a neutral zone which has not as of yet had any Titan owners enlist (or there are just no Titans in this area). Blue represents that the region is under Loyalist control whilst red represents Traitor control. Contested areas which have the same points from both factions are shown in purple.
Every time a Titan joins the Titan Owners Club it is assigned a geographical position on the worldwide maps and joins or creates a Demi Legio. For example should a new Titan painted in Legio Mortis' colour scheme join the club with a location of Northamptonshire UK, it will join the region's Legio Mortis Demi Legio called "The Bloodmire". If however it is painted in Legio Invicta colours and as there is no current Demi Legio of that Legio present, it will be created and named by the first submitter. Should the club member have more than one engine his force shall join a Demi Legio as a Battle Maniple.
Each region will have many different Legios present within their extents over the coming years and each one will be marked as either a Loyalist or Traitor faction based on that Legio's history. Each Demi Legio in a given region will be made up of several members and Titans. Each Demi Legio will have a point score (a combination of all Titan's uploaded therein), should the total point score of all Loyalist Demi Legios within a region exceed the total point score of Traitor Demi Legios within that location, then the region will be marked as under Loyalist control. Titan Owners Club will only take into account core points not weapon upgrades.
As each Demi Legio reaches 3 Titan Owners it will appoint a Princeps Majoris. This Titan Owner will generally have the largest personal Battle Maniple or the biggest Titan but the overall choice will be at the discretion of Titan Owners Club and will be awarded to the most suitable or active Owner, should the Princeps Majoris want to pass his position to another Titan Owner then he just needs to inform Titan Owners Club via Email. Titan Owners Club can change the elected Princeps Majoris at any time.
Once there are 50 Battle Engines in a Country under an official Legio scheme, one Princeps Majoris in that Country and given Legio will be elected by that Legio's Titan Owners to be the Country's Princeps Senioris. The Princeps Senioris which has the most Battle Engines beneath him will be that Legio's Worldwide Princep
s Maximus and Master of the Legio.
Unofficial and fan-made Legios will be treated as Loyalist or Traitors depending on the Titan used (Chaos or Imperial) and background fluff where submitted. Should confirmation be needed the Titan Owners Club will contact the Legio owner. They will automatically join either a Loyalist or Traitor Demi Host with other unofficial engines.
We hope that communities form around these Titan Owners and it enables us to have a solid bedrock to start Leagues / Marches / Events.
Let's watch the world burn.
My Legio Mortis are currently subdueing Northamptonshire. Come and knock me off!
