    As well killing each other and dying gloriously and as explosively as possible in battle is how they reproduce.

    All orks wanna do is have a little fun, and propagate the species. All these pink skins keep sparkin the party with all their "xenos scum", and "blood for the blood god" type business.

    Scouts are still officially 25mms as far as I know

    They are and there was a guide I found when I was trying to find out about what bases some models had
    It's Dakka Dakka though

    Jesus, that's ridiculously huge.

    But I'm also still of the opinion that Knights and other Titans shouldn't be in 40K to begin with, so...

    The acastus porphyrion version looks better. It's the arms.

  • daveNYCdaveNYC Why universe hate Waspinator? Registered User regular
    Yeah, I'm not a huge fan of the Porphyrion, but the guns stuck directly to the shoulder are a better look.

    Given that it's standing right next to a standard knight, more like 14" to the top of the missile rack.

    The warhound titan makes sense most of the others along the same lines don't

    Just I don't understand how you buy a titan now as I don't want all the arms maybe I want two of the same and a third to swap out

  • see317see317 Registered User regular
    So, when does a knight become a titan?
    Because that one's got to be edging in on Warhound size, right?

    I want a Warhound. Every month I have to make a deliberate, determined effort not to spend $200 on a 3D printer to crank one out.

    I know that compared to a bunch of Knights they're not that great for their points cost (especially after CA spiked them even higher), but I still think they're rad. Forget spending $700 on one though.

  • Mr_RoseMr_Rose 83 Blue Ridge Protects the Holy Registered User regular
    A Knight becomes a Titan when it has a crew of more than one. Also, void shields and a proper plasma reactor are important. A Warhound might be only slightly taller than an Acastus but it is also deeper and wider, carries bigger guns, is faster, and also even harder to kill.

    I’ve got very little interest in playing with mechs on the table, but a disproportionate amount of interest in playing a Warhammer 40k version of Mechwarrior.

    Most the games I have played were basically stepped up Kill Team { two or three squads and a leader with heavy support} So I have little interest in a titan or mech outside of painting and I have a huge back log to paint

    I just bought a battlegroup. Still not playing though because I live in the middle of nowhere.

    Not quite: looking for first-person stompy action in a narrative campaign. The tabletop and video game are both tactical games of lance v lance combat like Battletech.

    Are you looking for slower paced Mechwarrior type gameplay but in a 40K skin, or faster paced MechAssault gameplay but in a 40K skin?

    Honestly I'd be down for either one.

    That's WH40K Battletech. WH40K Mechwarrior would be Warhammer 40,000 Freeblade but as an in-cockpit vehicle simulation game.

    Generally I liked Mechwarrior Online, but I've been over it for a number of years. I'm ready to return to a single-player campaign. If that game had a Warhammer skin then all the better. I watched a video of the Titanicus game and it just didn't seem very polished. Definitely not enough to make me want to pay for it. But if we're totally being honest hear I'd gladly trade any sort of mech game for a Space Marine sequel. I had a ton of fun playing both the single player and multiplayer in that game.

    Edit: I might check out Freeblade. That looks like a perfect road trip sort of game.

    It's interesting because I've heard that GW's take on video games right now is quantity rather than quality seeing them as basically advertisement for the tabletop hobby. But most of the games coming out seem to be pretty good.

    Got introduced to the joys of playing against Ad Mech on a board with very little terrain this weekend. A full two thirds of my list evaporating before my first turn sure was something to experience.

    It was also the first time I've played a Dark Eldar list since the FAQ, and I feel like I need to update my feelings on a lot of their units now - losing access to Doom and Jinx really hurts, as they've lost the only army-wide synergy they had access to.

    I also tried experimenting with some of their stuff for the first time in a while to see how I felt about it;
    • Close combat Archons still kind of suck and the Shadowfield remains hilariously unreliable. Cool, yeah, it's a 2++, but the first time you fail it the Archon is screwed.
    • Scourges feel pretty weak compared to other heavy weapon units post-FAQ, as they're fundamentally a T3 unit with zero access to any form of re-rolls or buffs.
    • A Red Grief Succubus actually seems really strong when kitted out with the warlord trait and relic, especially for 50 points, but her low speed relative to the rest of the army is a major issue. She either needs to take a personal transport or spend a turn or two just crossing the board. I think she worked well as an obnoxious target - even travelling up the board she's an obvious threat and the 3++/6+++ means she can take more of a beating than she really should be able to.
    • A good sized group of Reavers were solid as a distraction unit and I kind of want to start bringing them consistently. 19 points a piece is quite a hefty ask when they're not doing much but wrapping up other units and sometimes taking objectives, however.
    • Yvraine is good, but probably a bit too expensive for what she brings to the table (a Farseer Skyrunner is objectively better in almost every way for the exact same points cost) and very fragile. Almost certainly more useful than taking a second Archon in a Kabal Battalion, though.
