Legions Imperialis – Dire Wolf Heavy Scout Titans

A novelty for the Legions Imperialis, and not just a repack of a former Adeptus Titanicus or Aeronautica Imperialis boxed set, is the double pack of Dire Wolf Heavy Scout Titans. These are formerly only available as single resin kits by Forge World (we've covered them here as well - Dire Wolf Heavy Scout Titan with Neutron-Laser and Volcano Cannon), and with them moving over into plastic, we even got new weapon options.

This new plastic kit, is available as a double pack from Games Workshop at 62,50 EUR, which makes them a bit cheaper than the resin variant which were 44 EURs each. On top of that, the weapons not only cover the Neutron-Laser and Volcano Cannon, but received a third option, the Conversion Beam Dissipator.


Legions Imperialis – Adding a Legio, Knight House or Auxilia to your Traitor Legion

And of course, we have to complete the list of all 18 Legiones Astartes by adding those who pledged their allegiance with the Warmaster Horus. And they wouldn't fight alone, not only with other traitor Astartes, but other parts of the former Imperial warmachine.

Warhammer The Horus Heresy - Legions Imperialis

The listing is a point to begin with, based upon my research in the wikis and Horus Heresy community. The list of allies will probably grow over the product schedule and campaign supplements for Legions Imperialis. While in case of the Collegia Titanica, the Legio Mortis fought along side every Traitor legion of the Astartes, and the only known titan legions who fought alongside the Night Lords, other flexible options are the Legio Fureans and Legio Krytos, who fought with every traitor legion with the exception of Konrad Curzes troops. Further more the support of Traitor Solar Auxilia, Renegade Militias and the Dark Mechanicum was not infrequently.

Legions Imperialis – Adding a Legio, Knight House or Auxilia to your Loyalist Legion

In Legion Imperialis you have the opportunity to use combined forces, so not just Astartes but field them with support of Knight Households, Titan Legios and Imperial Militias or Auxilia regiments. But which Legiones Astartes fought alongside which of those and what would create a proper alliance according to the lore?

Warhammer The Horus Heresy - Legions Imperialis

Of course, you can do what you want, it is your hobby, but with the Horus Heresy community known for being fluff bunnies, this is something I wanted to share with you, based upon lists from the fan wikis and combined work by people like David from Cat Hair in the Paint Pot.

I merged the lists and linked the according information from the wikis, so you have it at hand by looking up your Legiones Astartes. Beginning with the Loyalists. With the exception of the Raven Guard, every loyalist legion fought at one point along side the Legio Gryphonicus (War Griffons) and each of them can use the Solar Auxilia without any doubt.

Horus Heresy - Dark Angels

The 1st Legion, the Dark Angels from Caliban, already have the opportunity to bring their troops in Black, Green or White, but are able to field an even broader variety with the following affiliated factions.


Legions Imperialis – Point values of the 1st wave

As this question was asked more often, a quick overview, where you land with the items from the first wave.

Warhammer The Horus Heresy - Legions Imperialis

A few things up front

  • No, the starter set can not be combined into one large legal army as they Primary and Ally army split is 70/30 of points. There is a special formation for quick starter games, that is not meant for matched play.
  • You can mix multiple Astartes Legions into one army, as they don't count into the allied contingent if your primary list is Astartes
  • The 30% allied contingent count against anything that is not your primary army list. The Aeronautica units of your primary army are usually air support and don't count against the allied contingent.


Legions Imperialis – Civitas Imperialis

Terrain worth fighting over. This is something Games Workshop has provided with the Civitas Imperialis range already for Adeptus Titanicus and they are picking this up again for Legions Imperialis. I did reviews on these back in the day, the sprues are back and they have a lot of option.

Horus Heresy Legions Imperialis - Civitas Imperialis

The idea of this article is to give you an overview, what they contain as they are very similar named and a deal on the first sight, might not be that much of bargain once you had time to compare.


Legions Imperialis – Adeptus Titanicus

The core rules of Legions Imperialis give you the option to include most, if not all, available options from the Collegio Titanica for your armies as strategic assets. A lot of people were afraid, that Adeptus Titanicus would fall to the same fate as Aeronautica Imperialis did, but not to worry, the magnificent plastic kits are just repacked, as you will have noticed by now from the Pre-Order and from the inlay in the new core set.

You can still buy the Adeptus Titanicus core set (covering 2 reavers and 2 warhounds, along with the rulebook) and with the addition of the Campaign Compendium and one of the allegiance books (Traitor or Loyalist) you would - rulewise - have everything to play Titanicus. I recommend the addition of one of the maniple boxed sets, but more on the below.


Legions Imperialis – Warhound Scout Titan

While we talk about super heavy and heavy armour with the likes of Baneblade and Kratos, there are far bigger warmachines available for Legions Imperialis with the use of the Adeptus Titanicus range from 2018. These boxes will now come repacked with additional content (bases) for the dual use in both systems. And while we already covered the Warhound Scout Titans in 2018 in its initial Double-Box release, we will do an updated review on the variant for  Legions Imperialis, as we now have more weaponry!

What is new about the LI variant of the Warhound? Well similar to a lot of other Titanicus releases, Games Workshop swapped the weapon sprue. We have seen this with the Reaver Titan, where they replaced the Laser/Gatling Blaster with Power Fist for Melta Cannon and Chain Fist, the Warlord Titan, with Volcano Cannon or  Sunfury Plasma Annihilators and even Warmaster Titan, where the Plasma Destructors got replaced with an Iconoclast weapon system.


Warhammer World 2023 – Exhibition Centre Part 3

And the third part of our coverage on the 2023 visits to the Warhammer World exhibition, focusing on the 40,000 part of Warhammer, including the gigantic centre piece of the exhibit further below.

Imperial Might

A huge mustering of the Imperial Guard. This has been in the exhibition since 2015, and can be seen in our 2018 and 2020 coverage, but is updated from time to time, to include newer units. For example the tanks in the front rows have been replaced by the Rogal Dorn Tanks. This time I paid more attention to the background and I really like scratch build supply train in the background, as well as the modified Valkyrie using the wings and eagle from the Aquila Strongpoint of the Wall of Martyrs kit (rare kit and OOP).

Adeptus Titanicus – Adding a Legion to your Legio Pt. 2

While we wait for the pre-orders / release of Horus Heresy Legions Imperialis we continue to connect the new system with Adeptus Titanicus range. Which Space Marine Legion sided with which Titan Legio, and as we covered the Loyalist in our first article, earlier this week, it is now time to see who fought for and with the Warmaster.

Adeptus Titanicus – Battle for Uulda III Adeptus Titanicus – Battle for Uulda III Adeptus Titanicus - Battle for Uulda Legio Fureans

Similar to the legios like Astorum or Gryphonicus who fought with almost every loyalist Astartes Legion, there are legios like Mortis, Fureans or Krytos, who fought alongside most of the traitors during the Horus Heresy. Some even with loyalists prior to their secession.

Yet, other Legios have no official / canon connections towards other forces (beside maybe Knight Households), but this creates room for your own narratives, like in the case of Legio Damicium, Laniaskara or Vulturum.


Adeptus Titanicus – Adding a Legion to your Legio

With the excitement about the re-release of Epic as Horus Heresy Legions Imperialis, you might be wondering which Astartes Legion to choose. And while this can be an entirely new project and that is absolutely fine, you might want to use your collection of Adeptus Titanicus miniatures.

Which Legion would be a proper fit to your Legio? Let us try to answer these questions, based upon the available lore. And these are mere suggestions. The grim dark future is expands into a vast universe, so there is plenty of space for your own campaigns and combinations that aren't listed below, for multiple reasons (pre-heresy alliances, loyalists of traitor legions, Blackshields etc.). But as I am aware that a lot of the 30k community values the lore, I want to provide an overview for the Titan Legions of the Loyalist and Traitor book.
