Adeptus Titanicus is a brand-new game based around combat between Battle Titans, the mightiest war machines in the Imperium of Man. It’s set during the Horus Heresy, where brother battles brother for the fate of Mankind – and it’s released in 08/2018.
In fact the game is not brand new, it is based on the old 1988 game by Jervis Johnson. Adeptus Titanicus was the first game introducing the Epic (6mm and now 8mm) system. You control a number of Imperial Battle Titans, while your opponent controls some Chaos Titans. You re-enact battles from the Horus Heresy. The Titans are modular in design and so you could adapt the armaments of the Titans to suit the battle you will be fighting.
Fan made Sculpt Legio Mortis Warhound, AT GW Questoris Knight and Fan made Sculpt Legio Mortis Reaver Titan.
In the new Adeptus Titanicus, you are the Princeps Seniores of a Titan maniple, taking control of a number of war engines and interfacing with your models via unique Command Terminals. The game is designed to make you feel like the commander, issuing orders and directing your God-Machines to grind down the enemy, popping void shields and damaging their systems before making a definitive killing blow.
Being a big fan of the Epic scale I pre ordered the game and started painting a Questoris Knight ASAP after opening the game box. Incredible good mini! Easy to build and paints like a charm, the minis was done from assembling to matt varnishing in around 3h. Primed black, Leadbelcher spray, some yellow and light grey and some red here and there. Agrax Earthshade afterwards, decals attached, some highlights and varnished, done.

Titans are the supreme fighting machines of the Imperium. They are giants with skins of adamantium, protected by fields of almost impenetrable energy.
The first new look Titan I had painted was the Reaver titan. The Reaver Class is a light Battle Titan, faster than the Warlord but less heavily armed or armoured. This variant is produced on the Lucius forge world and is armed with a Volcano Cannon, Gatling Blaster and Rocket Launcher.
My second of the new look Titans.
A Lucius Pattern Warhound from Forge World. I really hope that FW is soon producing a Mars Pattern Warhound in EPIC scale. The rounded carapace is much preferable IMO.
A new take on Titans! - Reaver Class Titan
Again a scratchbuild fan made model that is not commercially available. The Reaver Titan; the design is again inspired by the fantastic Forge World redesign of the current Reaver.
The design is highly inspired by the fantastic Forge World redesign of the Warhound. A fan made model that is not commercially available. As you can read above I was never really happy with the Lucius pattern design, so you can imagine my joy when I saw the Mars pattern Epic scale mini!
And a group shot with some Epic scale Heresy models.
Cerastus Knight Castigator
Armed with the fearsome Castigator pattern bolt cannon, the Cerastus Knight-Castigator is favoured by those households faced with hordes of lesser foes that might otherwise overwhelm even a mighty Knight through sheer numbers.
Capable of obliterating infantry formations in a thunderous rain of mass-reactive explosions and whirling power blade, or carving apart light vehicles with ease, the Castigator is a formidable opponent.
The recent hype of 40K Knights also lead to some scratch build non commercially one. See below the Castigator.
