One intrepid gamer got the scoop on the upcoming return of Adeptus Titanicus from Specialist Games.
info from Recalcitrant Daze (go read, he’s got more stuff)
Adeptus Titanicus Info
However talking to Andy Hoare, Mark Bedford and Chris Drew I can mention the following:
The game is set during the Horus Heresy in the spirit of the original Adeptus Titanicus.
It will begin with just Titans.
The scale will be 8mm – They decided on this scale after 3D printing a Marine, Dread, Leman Russ, Warlord and a Mastodon in three different scales. 8mm was deemed the best as you could see the details to the point of telling different armour marks apart but didn’t make the Titans too big.
8mm will make a Warlord around 6″ tall (that’s what it looked like why Andy Hoare put his hands apart, don’t blame me if the final model is smaller or larger…).
The models will be produced in resin by Forge World.
Typical force may be in the region of two Warlords, two Reavers and two-three Warhounds.
More Titan variants are possible.
Down the road infantry and tanks are to be introduced.
Other forces are also possible, this includes Xenos which can be introduced in a themed expansion, e.g. Adeptus Titanicus: Armageddon to bring in the Orks.
Currently the Titans are being 3D modelled by Chris Drew, the Warlord has been done as the 40k version was originally 3D modelled so it was a case of just scaling things down and getting it to work as a model which can be manufactured.
We may, may, get to see something at the Forge World Open Day…(may, depending on Tony Cottrell)
Hmm, 8mm doesn’t seem like much, but it’s 33% larger than old EPIC’s 6mm. Six inch titans would look REALLY COOL bigger than a 28mm Contemptor but smaller than an Imperial Knight. they would look like…
…Well exactly like this cute little dude from last year’s Forge World Open Day:
You know you want a row of these little dudes on your desk…
~I’m all over 8mm EPIC!
