<whoop! whoop! whoop!>
Giant robot alert! We have giant robot alert!
In this instance, there's a new titan for Adeptus Titanicus available to order from Forge World. But that's not all they've got this week. There's also the new Inner Circle Knights Cenobium unit for the Dark Angels. They have such sights to show you!
From the website:
The Warlord-Sinister is a thing that should not be. A fusion of a mighty god-machine with psychic power, fear is its constant companion. Roused to anger, a Warlord-Sinister is a terrible beast, able to project psychic phenomena across the battlefield. Each Warlord-Sinister possesses a Sinistramanus Tenebrae – the Left Hand of Darkness. More akin to a weaponised warp engine than any conventional armament, it fires a bolt of darkness that disassembles any matter it touches, casting it into the warp molecule by molecule.
The Warlord-Sinister Psi-Titan is available to Loyalist Titan Legions in Adeptus Titanicus. One Warlord in a maniple may be replaced with this terrifying war engine. Using its Ciricrux Anima to channel its psychic powers, the Psi-Titan able to unleash deadly weaponised psychic energies, heal itself, and enable the god-machine to cross the battlefield at unnatural speeds, all the while using the Sinistramanus Tenebrae, the Left Hand of Darkness, to unleash bolts of shadow that cast its enemies into depths of the warp.
This kit contains everything you need to build one Warlord-Sinister Psi-Titan and use it in your games of Adeptus Titanicus:
– 1x Adeptus Titanicus Warlord Battle Titan with Plasma Annihilator and Arioch Power Claw. This 144-part plastic kit builds a towering god-machine and includes optional extras. It is supplied with a 120mm oval base.
– 23 resin components to turn your Warlord into a Warlord-Sinister Psi-Titan
– 8 Warlord Sinister Psi-Titan weapons cards: 1x apocalypse missile launchers, 2x belicosa volcano cannon, 1x paired laser blasters, 2x sunfury plasma annihilators, 1x Arioch Titan power claw, 1x Sistramanus Tenebrae
– 1x Warlord-Sinister Psi-Titan command terminal
The Cenobites of the Orders Militant are among the finest warriors of the First Legion, and each bears the most potent secrets and powerful weapons gathered by the Dark Angels over their many long years of battle. The Cenobites of the Inner Circle are called upon when that knowledge is the key by which the Legion might unlock victory in the most terrible of battlefields and most dire of campaigns. It is by the edge of their well-honed blades that the Dark Angels have conquered enemies beyond count.
Clad in the most exquisite Cataphractii Terminator Armour, each Knight carries a unique terranic greatsword and is covered in the iconography of the Dark Angels Legion. These proud warriors are ideal for wherever the fighting is the most brutal, as their armour protects them and their plasma-casters destroy enemy infantry with ease.
This highly-detailed resin kit comes in 41 components and builds 5 Dark Angels Legion Inner Circle Knights. It comes supplied with 5 40mm Citadel round bases.
Rules for using Dark Angels Legion Inner Circle Knights Cenobium are available as a free PDF download.
Convention season kicks off early every year with the Nuremberg Toy Fair. Want to get a jump on what's going to be coming out during the year? It's the place to be. In this instance, it's what Games Workshop is showing off. They've got previews out for new Aeronautica Imperialis, Necromunda, and Adeptus Titanicus
<whoop! whoop! whoop!>
Yup, a bit late, but there's Giant Robot Alert. Have a look
From the post:
The Nuremberg Toy Fair is a massive event each year for toy enthusiasts, so what better time to reveal some amazing upcoming new releases?
Let’s jump right in with some tiny airplanes.
Sometimes, a company's just like, "Ok, we're going to release just a ton of everything that we have. Ready-set-go!" That seems like what GW's up to this week. There's some new Aeronautica Imperialis heavy Ork bombers. Those are pretty sweet.
<whoop! whoop! whoop!>
Yes, we have some Adeptus Titanicus figures triggering the Giant Robot Alert.
There's two new Battletomes for Age of Sigmar: Ogor Mawtribes and Ossiarch Bonereapers.
And if that weren't enough, there's a whole host of new Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game kits, comprising some interesting side-characters to the conflicts from Lord of the Rings.
Have yourselves a look.
For ease, I'm going to split the different releases up by type:
So, Aeronautical Imperialis:
Age of Sigmar:
And Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game:
And I've got to admit, there's a lot more, too. Dice, terrain, deluxe versions of the books, living spell figures. It's just a ton of stuff. 4 pages worth, actually. Go check it out for yourself.
It's back around to Monday. I hope your weekend was good. Mine was. I got to see a bunch of good friends I'd not seen in a while. However, being up super-late has thrown off my schedule and made me head for a Dew to get me going again. But I'll make it. The other thing I'm going to make is your gaming tables look better.
Ok, so that link wasn't so great. I did say I was running in low gear today.
Anyway, today in the Terrain Corner we have: New Adeptus Titanicus Terrain From Forge World, Ded 'Ard Dakka Tower Available From Tabletop Scenics, and Ramshackle Fortress Available From TTCombat.
Upgrade your Adeptus Titanicus battlefields with a massive variety of scenery to fight over. The 17 resin models in this collection make perfect objectives for your games, as well as adding variety to your scenery collection.
Contents of this frames may be used to make one Ded 'Ard Dakka Tower structure. On top of it you can fit one model with up to 40mm large base.
Instruction is fitted to give guidelines and tips on how to assemble the product. Supplied unassembled and unpainted. Designed for 28mm heroic scale.
We’ve got even more fantasy terrain in store now!
It’s a new week, which means new scenery. Following on from the supremely popular Tumbledown Castletown last week, we’ve got three new Savage Domain releases for you today!
I know it happens somewhat often, getting some rather extreme differences between different releases from Forge World some weeks. But this one is pretty far apart. On one side, we've got a new Young Bilbo figure that's only available for a week to order. On the other, we've got three new weapons for Adeptus Titanicus with which to outfit your-
<whoop! whoop! whoop!>
giant robots. I need to make sure that alarm's working right. I think it got confused a little too.
From the website:
In his youth, Bilbo Baggins was much like any other Hobbit of the Shire, content to live a quiet, peaceful existence in the comfort of his own home. That was until a fateful meeting with Gandalf the Grey set him on a path that would forever change his life – and the fate of Middle-earth itself!
This version of Young Bilbo is normally only available at Warhammer World and as an event exclusive, but will be available via our Made to Order service for one week only to coincide with Bilbo's birthday on the 22nd of September!
Young Bilbo is a single resin miniature comprised of three components and is supplied with Citadel 25mm Round Base. His rules can be found in the Armies of The Hobbit™.
I know, a really generic headline, but when it comes to typing out all the different things that are available to pre-order this week from Games Workshop, it'd either be a really short headline that gets you to read on, or a large amount of the story would just be up in said headline. Anyway, Games Workshop has a ton of stuff up for pre-order right now. Arguably, the two biggest are the new Battletome: Sylvaneth and Scouring of the Shire books for Age of Sigmar and the Middle-arth Strategy Battle Game, respectively. There's also new figures for both those games, a new elven Blood Bowl team, new sets for Adeptus Titanicus, 40k, and pretty much everything else you can think of. There's terrain. There's dice. There's... I mean, I told you it was a lot of stuff.
The spirit-song rises, and the Sylvaneth march to war!
Unleash the verdant might of nature with Battletome: Sylvaneth – your guide to the eternal protectors of nature in the Mortal Realms.

Meanwhile, a huge selection of rules gives you countless ways to play with your Sylaneth collection. Allegiance abilities reward you for fielding dedicated forces of Sylvaneth, while rules for several legendary factions allow you to tailor your army to suit your playstyle – from elite forces of Kurnoth Hunters to serried ranks of Dryads.

Saruman the White, in his rage, decimated the idyllic lands of the Shire in a cruel campaign against a peaceful people. This war became known as the Scouring of the Shire, and it showed Middle-earth once again that Hobbits rise to the occasion when called to fight for what matters most.
With this expansion for the Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game, you can play through a narrative campaign to represent the battles fought during the Scouring of the Shire. You'll learn about the rich history of the Hobbits, from the founding of the Shire to their deep links with Gandalf the Grey.

There's just a ton of stuff over in Games Workshop's pre-order page right now. Some of it is still from last week, including the various Chaos figures they had. But there's also plenty of new things, like new Nightvault expansions, a whole bunch of figures for the Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game, and some returning items that are getting another release, like a book for said Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game and Adeptus Titanicus.

Not to be outdone, Warhammer Underworlds has two new mobs, who also have dice sets. It's sci-fi. It's fantasy. It's something for just about everyone.
From the website:
At the end of the Third Age, Gondor was the greatest remaining land of Men, the last bulwark of might standing against the growing darkness of Mordor. As Sauron's armies were unleashed and the War of the Ring began, it was Gondor that stood against the might of the Orcish hordes and their dark allies.

Of all the immense engine-wars that raged in the Horus Heresy, none was greater, or more devastating, than the battle of Beta-Garmon. In that star system, the last Imperial fortress world before the traitor fleets reached Terra, entire Titan Legions and Knight Households clashed for supremacy in battles that rendered worlds uninhabitable and ended legacies of honour that stretched back millennia. It was not for nothing that the battle became known to history as the Titandeath…

– Background and Legion-specific rules for 8 Titan Legions: Astorum, Defensor, Atarus, Solaria, Mortis, Krytos, Fureans, and Vulpa

Really going for two ends of the spectrum here with this week's set of pre-orders from Games Workshop. On one hand, you have Giant Robot Alert in the form of new kits for Adeptus Titanicus. On the other side, there's a whole lot of stuff for The Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game, including new Gandalf and Theoden kits, plus a new book, as well as a whole host of units.
From the website:
The Armies of The Hobbit™ is an expansion for the Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game that enables you to recreate your favourite scenes from The Hobbit™ Motion Picture Trilogy with your collection.

Games Workshop is once again hitting two ends of the spectrum with their pre-orders for this week. On one hand, there's the Adeptus Titanicus with new Warhound Titans *giant robot alert goes off*. Then, on the other side, in Nightvault, they have some new releases, including Tzeentch and Grots. Giant robots. Little goblins. Hard to get much more extreme than that.
From the website:
The Moonclan Shaman Zarbag and his scuttling band are an infestation spreading through the heart of the Mirrored City. While looting the ruins of Shadespire, Zarbag sniffed out a tantalising aroma indeed – towering clusters of deffcap mushrooms! The Shaman has taken it upon himself to spread this noxious fungus far and wide, drawing more and more of his numberless kin into the Mirrored City.
Introduce a new and unique warband to your games of Warhammer Underworlds: Nightvault and take advantage of new and different ways to play – whatever warband you use – with this set of miniatures and cards. It includes 9 rather eccentric, deffcap-addled Grots miniatures and a deck of 60 cards, 31 of which are universal to be used by any and every warband – add these cards to your arsenal and build your perfect deck.
Two ends of the spectrum on display from Games Workshop in their Pre-Orders. On one hand, there's the Reaver Titan for Adeptus Titanicus, available single or in a maniple. Then you've got a Nurgle team for Blood Bowl, along with accessories and some dice.
From the website:
A gargantuan war machine, the Reaver Titan is one of the most common and destructive classes of Battle Titan. Armed with devastating weapons and able to crush enemies under its tread by the score, the ground shakes as the Reaver advances and the enemy is left with a choice: flee or die. Reavers are the heart of the Titan Legions, holding the line or leading the charge as their Princeps demand.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Reaver Battle Titan for use in games of Adeptus Titanicus. Particularly aggressive-looking, even compared to its contemporaries, this highly-detailed Titan is easily recognised by its flattened face profile and angular carapace. It comes armed with several weapon options – a laser blaster and gatling blaster are available, with a power fist that can be modelled either clenched or open. Above the carapace – of which 2 are included, 1 blank – resides an apocalypse missile launcher, either side of which are the shoulder pads (3 sets are included, 1 set loyalist, 1 set traitor and 1 set blank.) Further modelling options include the knee pads – 2 of these are blank, with 1 depicting the symbol of the Opus Titanicus.
This kit comes as 122 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 105mm Oval base along with a decal sheet – this features heraldry for the following Legios: Gryphonicus, Fureans, Astorium, Atarus, and Mortis.
Giant robot alert! We have giant robot alert! Be prepared, everyone! Incoming!
Games Workshop is going big with their minis games. They're taking pre-orders for Adeptus Titanicus, a new game set during the Horus Heresy wherein players use their massive titans to battle against one-another. If you're a fan of minis whose height can be measured in feet, this is the game for you.
From the website:
The galaxy is in flames. The Emperor’s glorious vision for humanity is in ruins, his armies locked in brutal civil war. The greatest of these bitter combatants are the towering god-engines of the Adeptus Titanicus. Those Titan Legions that remain loyal to the Emperor of Mankind fight boldly to stem the tide of treachery, holding the line on countless worlds as the Warmaster’s forces advance inexorably on Terra. The Traitor Titan Orders march at the vanguard of the Warmaster’s hosts as they seek to bring the Imperium to its knees in the name of their twisted cause…
Adeptus Titanicus: The Horus Heresy is a tabletop game of devastating combat between awe-inspiring machines, set during the civil war that tore the galaxy apart. 2 players take control of a variety of Titans – colossal, bipedal war engines covered in thick armour and weapons which can level a city in a single salvo. It is a strategic challenge in which you pit your skill and cunning against your opponent in a battle to the death; a test of tactical skill demanding the management of the resources at your disposal, determining the optimal reactions to the evolving state of the battlefield.
The Rules Set includes a 96-page hardback book containing all the rules needed to play games of Adeptus Titanicus, from basic movement and resolving attacks through to advanced and optional rules which add incredible depth and tactical complexity. Along with the comprehensive rules manual, a host of accessories are included – Command Terminals, Battlefield Assets and more:
In the 96-page rulebook, you’ll find Basic, Advanced and Optional rules for play, along with detailed background on the Titan Legions, their creation and battles prior to – and during – the Horus Heresy.
- The Imperium of Mankind: while no complete archive of the history and events that shaped Mankind’s ascent to galaxy-spanning rulers exists, archaeodata can be used to piece together information on the Empire of Old; the relationship between Terra – the seat of the Emperor – and Mars, home of the Cult Mechanicum; the Unification Wars and Great Crusade; the Collegia Titanica and the creation of the Titan Legions; and the shattering civil war of the Horus Heresy. Such information is presented here;
- Selected Notable Engine-wars of the Age of Darkness: when the god-engines go to war, the galaxy itself holds its breath – here is a record of numerous conflicts between these towering machines, from the Betrayal at Isstvan III, the Death of Tallarn, through to the Imperial Muster at Beta-Garmon;
- Throughout the book are presented annotated schematics and blueprints of a variety of Titans, along with examples of composition, heraldry and colour schemes of Knightly Banners and Titan Maniples;
- Rules Introduction: Adeptus Titanicus can present a daunting prospect at first, with the Advanced Rules being a comprehensive guide to piloting a Titan – the Introduction section of this book is designed to ease you into the way this game is played, with annotated photographs demonstrating the setup, showing a battle in progress and clearly explaining how each accessory – the Command Terminals, dice and arcs, particularly – is used;
- Basic Rules: covering everything players need to know in their first few games, this section explains Rounds – between 4 and 6 per game – and the 5 Phases – Strategy, Movement, Damage Control, Combat and End – of which each Round consists. Each Phase is explained as an overview, with suggestions of Advanced Rules to add as you become more familiar with the game’s flow. Included is a mission – Titanic Clash – designed for use with the Basic Rules;
- Advanced Rules: once players are familiar with the Phases and flow of Adeptus Titanicus, it’s time to step up and begin piloting your Titans with Advanced Rules. This section introduces Stratagems, which are special abilities defined by the mission being played, and the issuing of Orders, which confer a bonus – and a concurrent disadvantage – to your models. Terrain effects are introduced here – even the god-machines can run into difficulty on a rubble-strewn battlefield – as well as the effects of pushing your Titan’s Plasma Reactor; while this provides you with more power for cataclysmic salvos of fire, it also drastically increases the chance of a dramatic overheating scenario. A canny Princeps understands how to manage this risk! As well as this, there are rules for Awakening the Machine Spirit, an unpredictable and unusual set of conditions which can be set by the vital force at the heart of each Titan, overriding the crew’s wishes in ways which can prove advantageous. Finally, this section provides rules for fielding squadrons and banners, supporting one another with coordinated strikes and overlapping void shields;
- Optional Rules: while not necessary for a game, the rules in this section can be used to add complexity and depth for those who really want to triumph over the adverse conditions found when trying to guide a Titan to war. Overloaded void shields, destroying terrain, management of the very routing of power systems, and dealing with the consequences of stray shots are all covered here;
- Assembling a Battlegroup: advice on assembling your Titans into a battlegroup, with maniple configurations and personality traits for your battlegroup’s leader;
- Fighting a Battle: 3 different ways of enjoying the brutal combat and evolving stories you’ll act out while playing are outlined here – Narrative, Matched and Open Play. Open Play concentrates on the models themselves, with no restrictions – simply place whichever Titans on the board you wish, and fight; Narrative Play uses missions to tell a story, and Matched Play balances the sides to make games pure tests of strategic ability. 6 missions are included, with advice on designing your own;
- Legions of the Adeptus Titanicus: descriptions and rules for Legio Gryphonicus and Legio Tempestus, each with its own Legion Trait, specific wargear, and choice of Princeps Seniores’ Personal Trait.
