The Warlord Titan Is Revealed


A Warlord Titan was shown today during a teaser image Forgeworld's Monday Bulletin. OK, really it was just a foot. Wow, this thing is huge and is going to be spendy. I guess its time to start saving a little.......

There were plenty of questions asked at Salute about the latest video on the Forge World Visual Feed. I don’t have many answers for you yet, but I did manage to snap something under construction in the Forge World Studio recently. Take a look... 

Building commences on something huge!



Here is the video we had from before.

  1. Looks smaller then I'd imagine

    1. It's the huge leg on the left not the model on the right, easy mistake to make ;)

    2. That's what she said!

      Sorry I couldn't help myself.

    3. I feel like some people mix up warlord and emperator titans. Emperators are the ones with bastions on the legs. I think this leg is missing its armor as well.

    4. I actually thought emperators were just a class of warlord titans. But I could be wrong

    5. Emperators are not a class of Warlord. They are about a one per galaxy item. Basically a city on legs. Lol

      Delete
    6. One per Galaxy? ... 40k is only set in one Galaxy and I'm pretty sure there is more than one Emperator Titan in existence :P

      Not quite as big as a walking city but it's about 50% bigger than a Warlord and does have s Fortress built on its back.

    7. After reading Titanicus and vengful spirit I just imagined them bigger is all

    8. I am sure its Imperator Titan, people. The Imperator is one of two classes of Emperor Titan, the other being the Warmonger. There is no such thing as an Emperator. Just saying.

    9. wow! this is HUGE indeed!
      anybody can guess-timate the size of the whole thing?

      Delete
    10. should be about 1.5 reaver's tall. 24 or so inches

    11. In the original Adeptus Titanicus game an Emperor Titan was a warlord Titan body with two sets of weaponry on each arm hard point and both carapace hard points used as well, they were super dangerous at range but totally unmanouverable, they didn't have the troop carrying capacity or the built in cathedral. I think it was about '95 or '96 when the Titan Legions game came out that the Imperator Titan was first seen. I did convert an Emperor titan out of my Titanicus boxed set but I was about 12 at the time and it looked rubbish. Halcyon days.....

      Delete
    12. Nope the Emperor Titan was well over double the size of a Warlord. The Warlord had 2 arm weapons and 2 carapace weapons, the epic model was only about 1.25 times the size of a Reaver (if that was literally just looking at this evening), though this looks nearer 1.5. About 24" seems right.

    13. I was going back to the 1988 rulebook, in the back section about Titan design and campaigning, you literally just had to glue more guns onto your warlord model.

  2. Really looking forward to this release and it appears to be even larger than I thought it would be.
    Maybe this will be the model FW go over the £1000 mark with after all and even with that price tag they'll still sell enough to make it worth their while without a doubt.

  3. It looks like something is missing. The "semi-ball" looks like it's not attached to the foot and it very thin compared to the leg above.

    1. There's quite a bit missing presumably: all the pistons surrounding the main structure plus the armour plating for starters.

      Delete
    2. There are halls near "toes" I thinks it is going to be to attached by some king of sprue to those rod on the "ankle". I think the leg is not complete.

      Delete
    3. Oh yeah - this thing will have struts, armor, and gobs of other gribblets, more than likely. Look at the Reaver's legs, scale it up, and you'll get a good idea:

  4. Mortgage payment or Giant robot? Married or Divorced? Decisions, decisions...

    1. I am tempted to put one on my wedding registry and see if the future misses notices...

    2. Ah, these are the decisions I face as well :)

    3. I think the closest I'm going to come to getting one is dressing my baby up in armor and just let her stomp.
      More orkish than imperial though, I'm sure she'd get as many of my forces as the opponent's!

  5. i really hope its got a load of interior detail for the crew and engines

  6. Well to be fair they're never going to be as big as the fluff really makes them out to be as that would be prohibitively expensive and far too large for gaming with (both of those things may already be true for some of course).

    It's similar to how 40k vehicles are smaller than the actual scale dictates they should be so that they can be cheaper and fit on the battlefield more conveniently.

    1. To be honest I think people mistake the old cardboard epic buildings for skyscrapers when they ar only 12 stories. Once you factor that in, the warhound and reaver is actually fairly well scaled from epic to 40k.

    4. And the old polystyrene buildings were better scaled to the infantry than the carboard ones

  7. Is it going to be the original beetle-back, or the boxy one from later on? Personally do not like the boxy one at all.

    ReplyDelete

    1. So praise the Omnissiah my brother, beetle-back is coming! ;^) Just like the Imperial Knight, but waaaaay bigger...

      Delete
    2. it looks to me a mix, a rounded beetle square-ish shape.

    3. The Tim Adcock Epic 40,000 box Warlord is what conveniently caused that game to flop and justify GW's decision to sack it. He ruined the Eldar titans too. They are far and away the most horrible models ever produced by Citadel, even worse than the Chaos Obliterators.

      Delete
    4. probably a mish mash of the 2 styles, personally i like the boxy warlord, and if it was more like the original warlord it would just look like an over grown knight...

      As for the demise of epic 40k, the mini's were not the problem alienating all the existing epic players was the problem through massive rule and gameplay changes

  8. Is that assault marine a member of some new night lords terror-pedicure squad?

    1. The "Toefilers", what a wonderful nickname for my next NL squad...

  9. On the back cover (or back inside cover, i forget which) of the Adeptus Titanicus rulebook there was a great diorama of 40k scale Ultramarines raising a flag on the 40k scale leg of a wrecked warlord titan. It would be interesting to compare size :)
