It's here at long last!

Image

It's shown off at the end of a short teaser video Forge World just put out. It's not shown all at once but people online put the photo together from multiple screencaps from the video hence all the white - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_6PdkKqB2I

What do you all think of the design? I think it looks good! The head is quite similar to that on the 40k Knight, not that that's a bad thing. I hope someone debigulates one for epic at some point, I'd be keen to own a few.

I don't know, nothing that's going to grow the Epic hobby. There are plenty of usable human titan things out there, including options from Steel Crown and Troublemaker.

Personally I'd rather some more effort was put into making all the stuff for other alien races!

Someone make an Orkeosaurus for example! Or Eldar type Titans!

I think it'd depend on the person. I'm not getting my hopes up much for one but if an epic version were to be available I could see it being a draw for some gamers, perhaps some who hadn't played epic before, more so than ork or eldar titans would be. I'm aware of existing Warlord proxies and own one myself, but this is a much nicer design IMO and I'm keen on good looking models. More alien titan proxies would be good too though.

More to like than not. Really looking forward to seeing it in the flesh just for the spectacle of it. Appears to be a very nice update to the beloved beetleback though I will admit my favorite warlord pattern was the Lucius.

Thanks for posting that!

Interesting. From that one picture it looks a bit too knight like. Legs look small as well from that angle.
Will be good to see more details of it as time goes on.

Not interested in a 6mm version myself, as i've decided true scale titans are a bit pricey for me, but i'm sure others would be keen. There are titan alternatives, but then there are rhino alternative and that never stopped the production of fan rhinos. Titans are even more iconic.

Certainty 99% I'd say.

+1

space elf giant robots and fungusaurs get my vote over an already available model which already exists in 3(4) different incarnations....

hmm... well I reserve judgement until I see more pics of it but at the moment it seems out of place with the larger titan aesthetics.

I love it. Too bad I'm too invested in smaller-than-true-scale minis to get a debigulated one if one gets made.

Interestingly, it seems to have the same shoulder tower things that the Lucius-pattern Warlord has.

I notice they've gone back to having full sized weapons on the carapace too, like the first two versions of the Warlord had :)

I prefer that than the carapace being limited to scout titan sized weapons, like the pair of Turbolasers on the most recent 3rd edition of the epic Warlord.

I'd guess £700–800 for the body and £200–300 for a set of four weapons

Ha ha at that price it would be:

40K= 1 titan
Epic= 12 armies

I like it.
You never can have enough titans !!! Prefer NOT true scale as it would be better for me if it fit with its predecessors.
