So, I had a demo of Titanicus at Warhammer World back in February, and was instantly hooked, The mechanics match the fluff so well, and it's exactly what I'm looking for in a game about Titans. Fast forward a few months, I still had that itch, so I decided to pull the trigger and ordered this pile of stuff:
That all showed up last week, so this weekend I built the two Warlords, leading to adventures with leg posing!
This was my first attempt, but me and Chaeron decided it looked just that bit too preposterous, so I ended up with this:
This has led to the unfortunate side effect of looking like the Titan is falling over backwards as opposed to purposefully striding, but I'm just gonna try and blag it as recoil somehow:
Here he is with his much more sedately posed brother:
I'm gonna be magnetising the guns (many thanks to Fajita Fan, Zhiv and thewarriorhunter for their help in that regard!), I'm waiting for my extra weapon sprues to show up as well as the magnets. No idea on the basing yet, maybe mud/some kind of trench warfare-ish thing? Basing has never been my strong suit, I am in theory moving all my 40K armies over to Sector Imperialis as that stops me having to think about it. I do know I'm not going for the 'tiny Marines for scale' approach, and I want all my terrain as terrain not basing material.
My eventual plan is to have two forces, so that other people can play without having to initially buy in themselves, but we'll see how that pans out in practice, I might just do like a single maniple and a couple of extras. I need to see what the campaign rules in Titandeath are like when my copy arrives. The first force will be Legio Polaris who are gonna be blue with a symbol that looks like a Mercedes logo that has three extra floating points. The second is unnamed, but I kinda want to do something with Celtic/Nordic knotwork patterns, because I'd never do it on a Marine army but on a few Titans I can probably cope. Not a single clue on the Knights, I grabbed them mostly for the hell of it. Might just make a Knight army at some point.
So yeah, that's my vaguely coherent Titanicus thoughts so far. Next step is getting the guns magnetised and possibly getting a couple of Warhounds built so I can ramp up the complexity of demo games from one Titan each to two.
