After picking up the rules set as a stoating wee bargain a couple of years ago (15 quid and still in the shrink wrap!), I played my first game last Saturday. Great fun. With no tiny titans of my own, my opponent graciously lent me 2 warhounds & 3 knights to fight his own. We ended up picking symmetric loud outs for our 'hounds; vulcan mega-bolter/turbo laser destructor and vulcan mega-bolter/plasma blast gun. I then proceeded to have a run of outrageous good luck. Must have been the dice, my first use of fancy purple/white Slaanesh ones.
Anyway, with the release of the warhounds it was finally time for me to get onboard with Adeptus Titanicus properly. My preorder of 2 boxes arrived Saturday and I have a reaver on back order, hopefully for despatch tomorrow, to complete my Venator light maniple. I've been really enjoying putting the little guys together and this is how they look:
The bodies aren't glued down yet (neither is the one carapace that I've clipped from the sprue), hence you can see the one on the right being supported by his disembodied twin! This pair will both be armed with a mega-bolter and turbo laser destructor. Although I'm planning on using that bag of noise marine weapons to convert them, so really they could count as anything. Piloted by twin Princeps, Relentless Eternity and Raucous Euphoria will be painted as mirror images of each other and use the same style armour plates.
In an attempt to get different poses I've fiddled with the legs. Rather than use them in the prescribed pairs, I deliberately mismatched them. This gives a nice variation:
For the other two I'll just use standard leg pairs.
Colour scheme-wise I was originally going with black and dark gold trim, and then acid green & electric blue as spot colours. In particular, these two I was going to halve the carapace with white and then put 2mm white/5mm green/2mm white/5mm blue stripes. After my good luck in the game, clearly the dice want purple as the main colour I'll still be using white and green, but have ditched the blue in favour of a little splash of yellow here and there. And bright gold trim. We'll see how that plan survives the actual painting!
I'm not sure on how I'll arm the other two. Probably one with mega-bolter/plasma blast gun as that was a great combo in my own game. I'm tempted with inferno cannon/blast gun on the last one. Although there's a good chance I'm going to do more conversion work on the armour for more of the spikey death metal version of traitor and it could end up as the founding member of Legio Hellion's Axiom maniple.
Thanks for looking!
