Adeptus Titanicus – It’s coming in 2017!
This is a guest blog by Adam Harry, first published on Bell of Lost Souls.
We’ve been waiting to hear more news about Adeptus Titanicus ever since the news broke back in May of 2016! That was the same time we saw this 8mm mock-up:
Now we have some more information from the Andy Hoare:

The book is done, the minis are done. Titanicus is going to print next week and will be out this year.
They are going to do a big release with boxed game plus extras. They pushed the schedule back a bit to flesh it out more.
They have learned from BB that people are lapping Specialist Games up, so are going to get more budget for it.
We also have some more info coming from Open Day regulars Battle Bunnies:

Adeptus Titanicus is delayed (it was originally planned to be released around february). Not being rushed out. Might be out before the end of the year.
There will be complete plastic buildings (which you can destroy yourself, by cutting etc).
Thanks to Blood Bowl, and the delay there is a possibility of plastic Titans which go on sale at the same time as the black book / resin ones.
The book art for ‘Titan’s Death’ is being worked on right now.

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.
I for one am very excited about more Horus Heresy Gaming! And thanks to Bell of Lost Souls and Adam Harry!
