Adeptus Titanicus – Civitas Imperialis Spires

In addition to the square building blocks and habitats of the Civitas Imperialis, Games Workshop released in 2019 a supplement to that kit, the Civitias Imperialis Spires, covering church spires and ecclesiarch buildings.

The spires kit is set at 25 EUR and covers a pair of identical large sprues, covering bases, small cathedrals, towers and spires. And of course comes with an assembly instruction.

Adeptus Titanicus – Civitas Imperialis

The first terrain kit released in 2018 for Adeptus Titanicus were the Civitas Imperialis. It was part of the initial Grand Masters edition of the Adeptus Titanicus Horus Heresy boxed set.

What's the point in reviewing a 2 year old kit? Well, first of all it completes the Manufactorum Imperialis review I just did, and the second reason, the Civitas kit didn't receive the coverage it deserves. It bears more potential than the regular, small buildings on the box or shop description show. For that reason this review will provide an introduction to the kit, that I'll continue with further build(ing)s using the bits and pieces provided from this kit.

Because the interesting aspect is, that the design of the Civitas Imperialis kit picks up the initial terrain design of the 1988 and 1989 boxed sets.

Testing 3D printing services

For the Adeptus Titanicus project I already got into 3d printing and had some terrain printed for gaming and base purposes. So far I only had access to a FDM printer, that my buddy has in his mancave / lab.

I have my eye on additive manufacturing and often come across that topic on work related tours, as in the last few years at Formnext. At these there were quite a few resin printers and samples showing miniatures and action figures, much closer to the needs of a wargamer. Resin printers are a bit more difficult to run and in the consumer field, the printing area is rather small so only works for smaller prints / pieces and is quite time consuming.

Adeptus Titanicus – Nemesis Warbringer Titan with Quake Cannon

Quite the eventful month for Adeptus Titanicus. Games Workshop released a new supplement, Shadow and Iron, along with a newly arranged starter kit for the game itself. But among the novelties are beside a Psi-Titan the Nemesis Warbringer Titan with Quake Cannon in AT-scale.

With the Nemesis Warbringer the role of a dedicated Titan Hunter was introduced to the lore of Warhammer 40.000 recently. The pattern was first shown by Forge World in 2018 and has no direct predecessor in the older lore. Yet, the Warbringer is described as being in service during the Great Crusade and fought against Titan-sized Xenos constructs and later on during the Horus Heresy.

Of Kings, Knights and Halloween on the Black Seas

It is the Halloween weekend and I thought that I had seen a horror-scenario for Black Seas, but I am unable to find it. Anyhow, there is Dreadfleet, of which I used the battle mat from the boxed set already with Cruel Seas.

Dreadfleet

Dreadfleet was a bit of a surprise back in 2011, when it was released as a stand-alone boxed-set. The rumours lead many to believe, that we would see a re-release of 1993's Man-o-War.

Jams, Titans and Vessels

Radaddel celebrate 25 years of tabletop in their store, and even added a delicious jam to your orders during the celebration. I know Matthias for more than 10 years now and that jam thing caught me, so I ordered two boxes of Adeptus Titanicus and got strawberry jam on top of it. Yay!

Why Reaver and Warhounds? Well, I had a blast reviewing both kits last december during the Titan themed week, the regular Reaver is a fine kit, but the "evil" one with Melta Cannon and Chainfist is really great. Originally I had planned on buying the battlegroup, but that one is currently not available through my resellers (I'm simply not paying retail on a box with that price tag), I went with the Warhounds that they had on sale with 25% during the celebration and added the Reaver to it.

Adeptus Titanicus – Imperial and Cerastus Knights

In addition to the actual titans of Adeptus Titanicus, I got myself some of the smaller units, the Knights, as support.

Adeptus Titanicus - Imperial and Cerastus Knights

Knights are smaller and less powerful versions of Imperial Titans, piloted by a single Knight commander, called scion, and not by a crew of princeps and moderati. With the knights being much smaller than Warhound Scout Titans, they can only to a limited amount carry titan weapon systems into battle. The Knights were introduced to Epic / Space Marine in UK White Dwarf #126 in June 1990, and a few years later in December of 1994 updated as part of the new editions of this game, Epic Titan Legions. Some of the new classes even derivate from the old names and types. There were Paladins, Lancers and Wardens, and those came back in the current variant as well. In addition knights had tiers, Squire, Knight and Lord, along with Senechal. Something that was picked up in the latest rules for Warhammer 40,000 to a degree.

Adeptus Titanicus – Titan bases

In december of last year I did a solid theme week on Adeptus Titanicus. I covered the two Warlord Battle Titans, the Reaver Battle Titan in both variants as well.

They stand proud and tall, I've just ordered a box of Questoris Knights and Cerastus Knights, and can't wait for the Acastus Knight, that was teasered on Warhammer Fest.
