Adeptus Titanicus - The first steps of a new Princeps

 As the title suggests I'm dipping my toes into a new game. Namely Adeptus Titanicus!


Painted up my first Warhound.

As many of you will know, I am a regular 40k player. However, a number of factors have made me want to move away from 40k. First off, lockdown due to Covid-19 has caused a dramatic decrease in the number of games I've been able to play over recent months. This, coupled with the increasing complexity of faction special rules (most prevalent with Space Marines) has made me lose interest somewhat. I still love 40k and still want to play it, but it feels like time for a bit of a step back and to try something new.

I've wanted to try smaller scale gaming for some time but have been put off of Adeptus Titanicus due to the pricing. However, as it was my Birthday this month I was able to get the starter set as a gift from my lovely wife. So far, I'm very impressed with the miniatures and the rules, although I've yet to try them out on the tabletop.

I chose Legio Fureans, basically because they look cool.

In terms of the awesome little titans, my plan is to paint them up as two different forces. That way I might be able to do a bit of socially distanced gaming with them. I've chosen Legio Fureans as my traitor forces and painted up the first warhound in their colours. I've named her Bavajuda, which roughly translates as Spite.

For the loyalist forces, I'm thinking that it will be Legio Atarus. That way I can set all the battles within the second Paramar V campaign which creates a nice historical narrative.


Final shot of Bavajuda.

Sorry for the lack of posts recently. Working from home has somehow left me less time for blogging (I kind of feel like it should be the other way around!) I will make the effort to do more regular updates here so you can follow my Titanicus journey.

  1. It’s an amazing game, we at TitanOwnersClub use it for our full scale Titan Walks, using AT28mm adapted rules. It’s a great game and mini Titans is my next project after the Reaver No.2

    1. I'm definitely excited to try it out. Working on a Legio Atarus Warhound now, so we should be able to have a quick test soon.

    2. The Command Terminals part of the tracking the damage etc is a great addition to what would otherwise be a table top battle, it breathes personality into each Titan and makes a superb narrative when the Titan eventually dies or explodes or survives

    1. Thanks and welcome to the blog! I haven't been updating it as regularly as I should unfortunately. I hope to do another update about Titanicus soon.
