Adeptus Titanicus.... a blast from the past. I remember playing this in my mates bedroom, with our plastic Warlord Titans roaming around the polystyrene city. I suspect we got plenty of rules wrong but we had a great time.
I was really excited when this came out, but then I saw the price of the first starter set, honestly it put me off which is ironic because I have probably spent way more on it now than the start set cost. But when you don't know if you are going to enjoy it or if you are going to have a big enough player base, then the initial price tag was too high. Having said all that the models were amazing.....
But then a few weeks ago GW launched a new starter set that was an absolute steal, two Reavers, two Warhounds and a couple of Knights for £90 - even better was that some online retailers were doing it for £70. I really didn't have an option. Plus several other guys at the club were going in, so we had a decent group of players all starting out.
I ripped open the set and got a couple of Titans painted up in short order and then managed to get my first game in and I have to say that it's a cracking game. We just ran through the basic rules and it was great, I haven't even got into the Legio specific stuff yet. Unfortunately the Coronavirus crisis has shut the club down for a month or so (or longer) which means getting another game in is going to have to wait a bit but it has given me time to get a decent number of Titans painted. I also got hold of a couple of the campaign books so have been pouring over the fluff and picking out my Legio and Maniples.
I have to say the models are some of the best kits GW have done, given that they aren't large models, the number of parts and the detail is astounding. I even managed to get over my fear of magnets and have magnetised all the weapon options to give me plenty of tactical choice. I pretty much have all the models I own painted, there are a couple of Knights and a Warlord waiting to be unpacked but I have a large enough number of Titans painted for a decent game.
So on to the models......
