I thought I'd sneak in an entry before the hustle-bustle of the new week begins.
Late this past summer GW reissued 'Adeptus Titanicus', a game which caused a bit of a stir for some geeks of a certain vintage. The new ruleset is great homage to the 1988 version - easy to learn, fun to play and very evocative of the Horus Heresy/Titanicus backstory.

In addition to the main titan chassis, I also picked up a selection of optional weapon loadouts.
|'Jeeves, I think for today I'll go understated. Let's have the Apocalypse Missiles, Hellstorm Cannon and Plasma Devastator...'|
I really like the ridiculously huge Power Fist (as big as a super-heavy tank!) and the rather rude looking Void Missile launcher.
|The titan's power fist next to a Falchion super-heavy tank. Silly but fun...|
|'Accept the Imperial Truth, or I'll fire these honkin' huge suppositories at you...'|
Yup, it kinda cracks me up. Each of these weapon options required a some creative trimming, drilling and magnets to allow the ability to swap them in.
|Something a bit preposterous...|
|...and something a little less ,um, striving.|
|'Be honest, do the missiles make my @ss look big?'|
Byron kindly provided an appropriately shaped MDF base and I tarted it up with some wreckage and a parked Rhino (probably some Blood Angels trying to find a place for a decent cappuccino).
|'I heard there's a guy named Franco that needs sorting...'|
For points I'm thinking that due to his size and silly weapon options, this fella's worth the equivalent of two 28mm vehicles.
So there you have it, my newest, stompiest titan, 'The Crucible of Terra', ready to blow the Arch Enemy to smithereens, or at least punch them hard in the owchie parts.
Thanks for dropping in, folks. Paint hard and have a great week!
