If you all haven't read the book "Mechanicum" set during the Heresy you need to read it ASAP.  One of the baddies they fight is something called the Kaban machine, described as a huge spherical robot on tracks with weapon tentacles and cannons.

I bought a box of those Kataphrons to try making my own for a scenario.

I'm also planning some kind of mechanical t-rex for a scenario in honor of the great GRIMLOCK SMASH

https://youtu.be/BtGdfulu5KI?t=255

 

I feel like this would be a good model to start from. 99120116001_Ballistar01.jpg

I think it’s too big for that, it took on two Knights in the book.

Also Titanicus was a really good book if you haven’t read it, well written and well paced. Warlord by David Annandale wasn’t bad but I thought it was like a short story that was stretched out to be a novel. It’s like the publisher told him to take a simple short story idea and just bulk it out for printing.

Not done any listbuilding BUT I really want to add some hounds to my Mortis maniple/collection.

atm I have 2 Warlords and 2 Reavers and was going to buy 3rd Warlord this week... but now I want warhounds.

So, I know there is no maniple (yet) that would include 2 of each but would it be doable in the point limits given (dont have my terminals,book or cards near me)

my final goal (yeah, right) is to have 3 of every class for Mortis.

You can take two of each at 2000 points, sure.

I’d like to make custom rules for Nids, the best parts of the novel “Warlord” are where they’re taking on biotitans and stepping on carnifexes. Someday I’d like to kitbash a few heirophants but that’s a ways off.

I started thinking about how to Chaosify some Reavers and a Warlord since I think the Warhounds will be pretty easy when I decide to do a 40k Chaos legio.

 

I'm assembling one of those 40k terrain cranes and I don't really like the skull that goes on the top pulley, it looks appropriately sized as a Chaos skull if my legio is dedicated to Khorne.

Took a few Defiler leg bits and started mocking up a powerfist with all the extra Reaver thumbs I have (this is easy when you have 6 Reavers) but I will probably have to shorten the arm so it doesn't look like a gorilla.  I have plenty of blades and sheet plastic to add a bunch of spikes and sharp edges but I wish I had more horns. I think I have some Fantasy chariots in a box somewhere, I'll bet they have some good bits.

I'm in a meeting and I've got another window open while I take notes. Next week I'll submit another file to get printed some more megabolters after I modify my quake cannon, I'm not really happy with the gun shroud.

I like the two of each approach Fajita Fan: as ever, the difficulty of building lists that are cool and effective...

Anyone else thinking of building their lists around fluff more broadly? I'm mostly gearing mine (in terms of name and builds) where possible around listed maniples, but appreciate this may not be wholly pragmatic for gaming. Things like Mortis supposedly having fewer Warhounds might also factor into my thinking (despite my love of them!).

I love fluffy lists! There are more maniples coming so we can probably guess some of the combos.

2x Warlords, 3x Warhounds
1 Warlord, 4x Reavers (maybe with a similar mechanic to the Venator)
5x Reavers
Etc etc

That’s why I’m building the lists like this because I can probably squeeze future maniples into them.

My 2K is now
Warlord
Plasma Gatling
Reaver x 3
Fist Melta
Warhound
Plasma Bolter
Banner x 2
Thermal, Thermal, BC

This list wants to move up and get into kissing range, I like it. What are you putting on the roof of the Warlord?

Not mine but I have a buddy that runs 2 Venators at 2K.

Reaver + 3 Warhounds
Reaver + 3 Warhounds

I almost never want to relight my Shields once they go down because it means that next phase I’ll get hit by Mega Bolters and then the Reaver will get a free shot again.

I used a pair of Warhounds without the squadron rules and they’re squishy, a lone Warhound trying to flank may find itself it an awkward spot but I’m the first to admit I’m generally terrible at positioning so maybe that’s more a concern for me.

Even scratchbuilding yourself a Gatling cannon for a Warlord will give you a few more points to work with and generate a little less reactor heat.

I’m building 1000, 1500, and 2000 point lists for now just because I happen to have a lot of models. I sorta assumed from the rulebook that’d be kinda standard.

Should I do my loyalist legio as Metalica or Astorum? I’m so torn...

Whoa, look at the robot on the Warhammer Community page. I don’t know what that is but it could be used at AT scale for fighting some unknown Xenos. Is that supposed to be a Necron thing? Looks like a 40mm base so it would be a good standin for a Knight.

I'm pretty sure the base is smaller then that, considering the ratio between the base's hight and width I'd speculate it might be a tiny 25mm base:

Playing 2000 takes us about 3 hours, 1500 about 2 hours, 1000 about 1 hour.

Including setup but that’s with being pretty familiar with the rules already and activating at a fairly quick pace.

Depending on the exact size this could make for a very nice Slaneesh knight torso. To me it has kind of an Eldar feel (a bit twisted maybe), which would not be surprising if this is part of the Blackstone Fortress' defences.

I’d like to use some Necron bits for a narrative campaign too, I love converting and making rules for stuff that doesn’t exist and this game has a lot of opportunity.

So I wanted to add some Warhounds to my Aurora traitors but now I think those Kataphron destroyers might be a good opportunity to use as proxies. According to the wiki the Kaban machine was ~10m tall which is roughly the height of a Warhound. If I convert those 3 models on 60mm bases it would look like the Dark Mechanicus gifted Aurora a squadron of Kabans as a reward for spreading the scrapcode.
