magnetisation and general modularity of the kits.

 

 

At least, we should now have a little bit more info about how the additional weapons are likely to look like which could help with magnetisation. Eagerly awaiting pics of the sprue to have confirmation. The way the sunfury plasma annihilators and the arioch power claw are attached is similar to the one for the volcano cannons.

Marshall Rohr has it, imo it's been pretty obvious this was the way the release would go down since it maximises warlord sales. I agree it's a bit of a middle finger to grand master edition purchasers.

Or, ya know, anyone that picked up more than one Warlord kit.

Or any model entirely, if this becomes the status-quo they wont stop at just the Warlords.

Yep, I was almost ready to pull the trigger on my next Reaver. that's now on hold until I see if they follow the same pattern.

Looks awesome. I have a Reaver already, maybe I’ll end up with a maniple after all.

They shall be my finest warriors, these men who give of themselves to me. Like clay I shall mould them, and in the furnace of war forge them. They will be of iron will and steely muscle. In great armour shall I clad them and with the mightiest guns will they be armed. They will be untouched by plague or disease, no sickness will blight them. They will have tactics, strategies and machines so that no foe can best them in battle. They are my bulwark against the Terror. They are the Defenders of Humanity. They are my Space Marines and they shall know no fear.

That’s now looking like the sensible option. Wait until the weapons you want are available or just go full Legio Audax...

Hmm, tiny knights could work perfect as servitors for my master of forge~~

The Reaver will
Most certainly have a second sprue with a Volcano Cannon, Chainfist, and Melta.

Your opinion is important, and someone posting here probably does care what you think. You should go tell them. Remember that it really hurts to come up with an idea you care about and have no one else care. Go care about something and tell them what you think. Now. Think of what it would have meant to you when you were young.

Sigh. I would have got 2-3 upgrade sprues for my two GME Warlords, so each would have a selection of weapons but this way I guess I'll get a third warlord and spread the parts. I'm glad I haven't started on the second yet as i was torn between making them of two different legios or not. Those who have will be the most burnt by this, needing two new kits just to have flexible weapon choices painted up in each titans colours!

It's cool to see Lancers, but I'd hoped we'd get upgrades for the current knights with carapace weapons, the thunderfist gauntlets and the Mechanicus aligned head designs.

Can anyone confirm that Andy Hoare is trying to walk back his previous interviews by saying he never said they would be seperate? I have seen people say it but have not been able to verify it.

Reading the WHC article, they mention two plasma sunfury canon and an optional power claw. This could allow customisation between a sunfury titan and a volcano titan (5 weapons available). However, I now doubt that they include enough components to have three arms ready... Waiting to see the sprue anyway.

 

I'm clearly disapointed, I have three warlord fully magnetised and waiting for weapons pack...

I am thinking about adding magnets between the "arm" and the weapon (respectively bottom of parts 60+61 and top of parts 63+64). Also eagerly awaiting to see the sprue.

Eh, you can always paint gun plate in colour complimentary to both schemes, can you not? I mean, it's not like these have 'official' colours, I recall multiple FW art pieces showing titans from the same Legio with differently colored guns...
 

To be honest the easiest thing to do would be release the weapons in resin separately and prevent third parties jumping in.

 
How? Not only it would mean far more expensive parts, given recent FW policy, it would mean warped/badly cast/less detailed parts that couldn't be bought in any store you want but would need to be ordered/replaced from UK. Seeing a lot of people here in this thread are already laying groundwork in attempt to justify going to thieves, doing it FW 'expensive kit' way would just mean people whining about price, not box availability, and making it resin would also mean much easier to recast than plastic meaning more, not less piracy to boot...

I’d love some of these I was hoping for the Lucius Pattern head, I guess I’ll have to wait longer. I echo previous statements about it being abit poopy not releasing a separate sprue at least. But having seen they have rolled Necromunda info one book I’m half glad I’ve waited, shenanigans on specialist games I think. The same applies to AT. If you’re willing to pay to be in early great. Think I’ll wait to see what drops before committing any cash.

Because a steel mould for a plastic sprue is going to have a vastly bigger start up cost than one for a mould for a resin kit. It'd be treated like any other FW kit and be business as normal if they made them in resin, it'd be no different than ordering weapons arms for a dreadnought.

 

On top of that it'd be a lot cheaper to buy separate weapons because you are not having to fork out for a complete Warlord kit just to get some guns.

 

I don't think people are trying to justify going to recasters, they are just pointing out the obvious trend since FW overseas went up. It's not ethical but if presented with the option of a cheaper model over a much more expensive one then some people are going to go to them over FW. The plastic kits are just as easy to recast as the resin, I've seen pictures online of complete plastic kits, including vehicles and even recent store event only models being reproduced by more unscrupulous sellers and they look identical.

 

On top of that you have the 3d printers that will not pass up the opportunity to make cash off 'counts as' weapons if you can only get the new weapons by buying a Warlord.

Does it say anywhere that the new weapons will only be available with the Warlord? Or perhaps they're just advertising it as a bundle and it will be available separately as well, yeah?

Happy to see they're releasing Cerastus. I hope the Titanicus Realm of Battle board won't be too much $$$$$... but it probably will be.

They're saying the weapon sprue comes with a Warlord body, when confronted they hinted it would be an upgrade sprue they're saying "we didn't say that."

Hmmm... well, the only thing I can say is if we pressure them they may relent. Otherwise perhaps people will part them out on eBay or something. If not I'll simply stick with the configuration from the box.

well none of the other Titans have premade magnet holes like the Warlords do, so it's not like expectations for separate releases are established for those.

 

in any case, I expect separate releases will come eventually, even without the current backlash, maybe the "weapons packs" will end up being bundles with one of each sprues once all the ones they plan on producing in plastic are out.

Just finished my first Warlord and I like how this one looks so i'll be picking it up sometime. Also the Knights as well for the same reason I bought the Warlord in the first place. I'll probably never get either 28mm scale versions.
