40K: Imperial Armour Datasheets Revealed – Chaos Titan and Relic Sicaran

Check out the Chaos Warhound Scout Titan and the Relic Sicaran Battle Tank’s new rules.

More Imperial Armour news for you guys. We’ve got a sneak peek at some of the incoming models now that the Forge World Indexes are out. And let me just say, holy cow, you think you know what a large model is going to be like–but wow. The Warhound Titan is bonkers and that’s the smallest of the titans. In eighth edition it’s basically the little titan that could. And before we get into it, I have to say that it feels like a titan should.

It’s incredibly resilient, it has an ungodly amount of firepower, and in melee, it makes three hit rolls for each single attack it has (for a total of 12 to hit rolls in each combat), and its void shields keep it safe from mortal wounds. Now whether or not that “three hit rolls per attack” means it has three chances to hit, or makes three attacks with every attack, I’m not sure (though I’d suspect the former is the case). Similarly it also has weapons that fire with the profile “Macro Xd6” which is probably another rule detailed in the Indexes.

And now let’s take a look at the Relic Sicaran.

This may be one of the most heavily armed single models out there. Capable of mounting twin accelerator autocannon, two Lazcannon or two Heavy Bolters, a Hunter-Killer Missile, and a Storm Bolter, this can spit out 11-20 shots with a single volley depending on how you equip it. And with 14 wounds and a 14″ movement speed, it’s sure to be able to turn up at exactly the wrong place for your enemy’s plans.

It’s a beating and a half in a heavily armored package. At 14 power rating it’s a little expensive–but man does that mean you can get a lot of bang for your buck. That twin autocannon makes it great for mowing down heavy infantry and it’ll wound most vehicles on 4’s, making it a handy, multi-role assault vehicle.

You can see even more data sheets if you grab the digital Imperial Armoury, available to download now.

What do you think of the new titan?

  • Heinz Fiction

    Finally toughness 9 on a model. Thought that was a myth…

    • Vicent Martín Bonet

      Warlord titan has T16.

      • stinkoman

        oh? tell me more please…

  • Deacon Ix

    Lascannon

  • Talos2

    How does the 7+ work for the void shield?

    • Ian Knight

      Bonuses to dice rolls can now take the total of the roll above six, so to make a 7+ save you’d need a buff to save rolls from somewhere

      • Massawyrm

        Cover, if it’s 50% obscured. Also expect some sort of Nurgle related “Plague of Flies” bonus to saves once the codex drops.

        • ILikeToColourRed

          cover only affects armour saves

          • Massawyrm

            Incorrect. 1) There is no such thing as an armor save. You make a saving throw using your Save Characteristic. 2) Cover specifies that “invulnerable saves are unaffected,” not that only standard saves are affected. 3) Titan Void Shields specify that they are a special type of saving throw, then provides a set of rules for how to make them. It does not include guidelines that state they are unaffected by cover. They do however include a 7+ SV characteristic, as found in other units across the indices.

            Unless errata’d later, RAW is super clear, and it seems to jive with RAI.

          • MechBattler

            RAW vs. RAI

            Test your MIGHT!

          • ILikeToColourRed

            my bad – misread the void shield as an invul save (i think that’s what it was before?)

          • Massawyrm

            Sure was. And no worries!

  • Brian Griffith

    Man, Warhounds are speedy. Something that big crossing the battlefield at full pelt is kind of terrifying.

    • Emprah

      I love that part. These things are supposed to be terrifyingly agile for their size, able to jink and leap in books.

  • Angel Grinder

    the actual body for the Chaos Warhound Titan has been out of stock and not listed on Forge World for a while now – is it getting a remake like the Thunderhawk? (I’m not optimistic enough for plastic!!)

    • ILikeToColourRed

      both warhounds and reavers aren’t coming up on the FW site for me…

  • Crevab

    Why doesn’t the Warhound simply have 12 attacks?

    • Bootneck

      Because Titanic Stride is the default generic attack for a Titan – whether or not it has another CC weapon option available. In the case of the Warhound they have no other options.

    • georgelabour

      Well you know in some of the books even Warhounds have had melee weapons. Plus that new Adeptus Titanicus game is coming soon.

      So FW likely did it to keep it compliant with other walker profiles (E.G Knight suits), and to leave themselves room for future kit options.

  • georgelabour

    Fingers crossed that the Knight Magaeros is a bit more useable now.

    And that my Atropos is worth bringing for the 2 rounds it’ll last before blowing itself up…again.

    And in a few more days I’ll know for sure.

  • MechBattler

    That Sicaran is a real bullet hose. I wouldn’t want that aimed at ANYTHING I’ve got on the table. At 48″ this thing could ruin your day from almost anywhere on the board while it grabs cover. And now that facing isn’t a thing, you can always point ALL of it’s guns at your intended target and never be unable to take a shot because of firing arc.

  • NNextremNN

    Why does this Sicaran has a Storm bolter profile but can’t take one?

    • dootdootbeep

      Third bullet under wargear options.

      • NNextremNN

        sry must have been blind. Somehow only saw heavy bolters.
