So much awesome the shelves can barely contain it!
So I noticed that GW has been making all there core game boxes black since at least 2015, and all but AoS soul wars has both apposing forces on each end of the long side of the box, this was not apparent till I moved my old box sets to my storage annex and put up all the new GW games I got! The original Adeptus Titanicus was red and various other 40k editions are different colors I also have Gorka Morka which is white with black teeth pattern, Mordheim which is a darker red and brownish looking background art that wraps around from the top of the box lid. So it’s clear the 80’s and 90’s were a brighter grim dark future / or dark fantasy, than the 20’s! 😛 …
Also I’d like to point out that the new scale of Adeptus is “almost” double the hight of the old models here is my old knight next to my new ones!
But in the case of battle titans it is exactly double the height of the original plastic beetle-back titans that came with the original Titanicus box. If I’m lucky I will have time tonight to assemble the battle titan!
Adeptus Titanicus rules and gear!
Old lovely outdated brilliant 80’s colour scheme, and new gritty grim dark cover modernized!
I found a dry erase storage clipboard that can hold all the lovely game Gubbinz and it can hold the cheat sheet and command terminals in the clear dry erase board! Just brilliant!
So Thoughts on the rules so far… I’ve just read the basics rules but in just that part, it still has a good vestige of the original rule set and the some of the things like critical hits done the titans operating systems is now done with dice instead of the old graph that you had to calculate all the damage done to the different systems on the titan. And the new titan command terminals are a lot better then the old ones
I like the more stream line command terminals, the old ones required the user to do a lot of upkeep in game not to mention in the set up which is why I always used mechanical pencils with good erasers as I was always makings adjustments and marking damage down
Old way of setting up your titan get your pencil out
New Command Terminal it has slightly embossed areas for the command side priority marker and weapon cards so if bumped in play it doesn’t go absque to badly.
The new armaments cards are nice and easy to change the load out of your titans! Plus everything you need is there you don’t have to consult weapon sheets for firing arks or weapons traits. I also like when your weapons are damaged you flip the cards over and new effects happen to the weapon or titan most are negative effects that weaken or destroy the weapon. There are damage track on the titan, so the titan has a damage track for head , body , and legs and each has a critical damage track.
At the start of battle, place a status marker in the first (left most) hole of each of the hit location status tracks. During battle, each marker will move along its track as the location suffers damage (calculated using the table below the track). If the marker reaches the end of the track, the titan becomes structurally compromised and further hits to that location are likely to cause Critical damage. That’s only after you have gotten through the titans numerous void Shields.
well that’s all I’m going to cover for now I’ll reserve my judgement for after I have play a few games and I’ve had time to compare it to the original, not to mention I need to read the rest of the book ( I’m a slow reader, it’s not easy when you have
A-D-D) 😉 hahaha
And I’ll see you in the wasteland!
