Yeah it'd be silly to buy new Titans if you already have a good painted collection. Some people don't so fair enough if they buy AT18 either for epic or ... [gasp] they may like the new game (it's not for me but hey, whatever floats your boat)

I ended up retreading to AT18 sized Titans simply because my Greek made Lucius pattern Warlord matches the scale and I've always loved the Lucius pattern warhounds which are easily printed at 8mm size so I'm set and in good place.

I believe many will do as you and I are … But we have been gaming with GW Epic for a longer time than many others … ;D

The Warhounds come on 80mm raised bases. I really wanted to put them on a smaller base but the stance of the feet is pretty wide. At the very least I want to put them on thinner bases like the old Eldar Titan 60mm ones they did so they look a little shorter.

The Warhounds use 80mm bases? So they are bigger than a 40k dreadnought?

I'll know for sure when mine arrive in the post this week, but I think the operative word is wider as opposed to larger.

Yep, 80mm round. I have 5 of the Warhounds. I'd be curious to see a side by side comparison between a forum and AT Warhound at some point but based on the Reaver I expect them to be significantly bigger. I expect if you posed them in more limited non-striding poses you could still fit them onto 60mm bases if preferred.

I'm doing all my AT titans on 1.5mm high laser cut acrylic bases to match my other Epic models (they'll be used 90+% for Epic I imagine though I will give AT a try). I have 80mm round bases I bought already from Lazerline Designs and he's currently making me a load of the other two larger oval base sizes in the game as a custom order.

Best I can do at the moment. It's quite a bit bigger.

I tried to get some of those bases from Lazerline, but he told me he's not doing black plastic at the moment...

Yeah, I'm looking for 1.5mm high black plastic to match my infantry stands :)

Feel free to sling any those STLs you seem to have my way :P


Thanks for the link; my search-fu is weak!

I've seen at least two people in the FB group (I think you're in that one) make comments about sharing STLs, but didn't pay much attention since I can't use them either way :spin

A new transfer sheet for Legio Mortis:

https://www.warhammer-community.com/201 ... fer-sheet/

...and I'm calling the associated Warlord image - armed with exactly what we would expect from a weapons add on kit - a preview in plain sight.

Assuming they go with the 1-release-per-month model that they've done with the other Specialist Games, it would make sense for that to be next month's release...

Nice. I'm hoping they bring out transfers for Legio Ignatum, and that's me covered for loyalist and traitor legions :)

That Warlord image is from the rulebook, so not sure if you could consider it a teaser / preview.

Just listened to the Warhammer Live hour-long talk on AT18

Here are my notes:


  • Titandeath Campaign (next book)
    • Horus Heresy
    • Set in Beta Garmon star cluster
    • Huge Loyalist force gathered - Traitor forces had to respond with equal force
    • Primarchs will be present
    • Guy Haley is writing the novel about this - December 2018 release
    • Will have more Maniple types in it
    • Imperial Hunters (will have all female princeps) & Nova Guard will be there
    • Legio Krytos (Godbreakers) will also be there
    • Will be first of several books - it takes a long time to write these
    • 100 pages
    • Legio Rules for at least those listed above will be in it
    • Full campaign system - roughly based on old Planetary Empires hex set rules
    • New weapon variants & Knights
    • Release "soon" after the novel (early '19?)
  • They have more Titans in the works
    • One scout lighter than Warhound
    • Between Warhound and Reaver
    • Between Reaver and Warlord
    • Between Warlord and Imperator
  • Other books will center on other Titan campaigns
  • Line will expand slowly
  • They have a very long roadmap planned out - out to at least 2020 if sales support it
  • Psi-Titans are in the works
  • Ursus Claws for Warhounds are in the works
  • They created the game as they wished it was in the old AT88 days - including Mars pattern over the more boxy Lucius pattern
  • Decal sheets will have one Legio and one Knight Household
  • They'd like to do mass Knight formations as part of the game - in the future
  • They plan to work their way through all the famous legions
  • Legio Fureans is linked to the Emperor's Children
  • Regarding Lucius Pattern Titans - they do not plan to do these
  • They just hired a new guy for designing Titan weapons, add-ons, etc
  • They will work in both plastic and resin as is appropriate
  • They'll stay in the HH for a long time - something else might be possible, but no plans for now
  • They want AT18 events at Warhammer tourneys
