On The Workbench [July] - Reaver Titans for Adeptus Titanicus


Adeptus Titanicus Reaver Titan WIP

Greetings.  On the workbench today, we have two new Reaver Battle Titans for Adeptus Titanicus. The one of the left will reinforce Legio Ignatum, while the one on the right will reinforce Legio Tempestus.  They are currently not named, but the rights of naming will begin soon.

My current Legio Ignatum force consists of one close combat Reaver, and one fire support Reaver.  So this new addition will provide additional fire support. The new Reaver brings me to one Warmaster (not built), 1 Warlord, 1 Warbringer, 3 Reavers, 4 Warhounds, and a Warlord-Sinister ally.  Decent enough options for fielding various maniples, especially if I sub the Warlord-Sinister in as a normal Warlord from time to time.

My Legio Tempestus force is in the opposite situation, with two fire support Reavers. So this addition will be used for close combat, and will bring the force to 2 Warlords, 1 Warbringer, 3 Reavers, and 4 Warhounds. Also a decent enough mix.  If I build two War Masters, then Tempestus will get one.  But Legio Ignatum is what I see as my main personal force to play with.  I'm maintaining Legio Tempestus engines as a second force so I can invite friends to game with me. So they don't get all the cool toys, unless I need it for balance. And my point here isn't to play mirror matches, either, despite having a pretty equal number of engines in each Legio.  I just want to be flexible enough to try various maniples out with either force.

The real issues is how far I'm starting to slip behind in my engine painting.  I have 1 Warlord, 1 Warbringer, 2 Reavers, and 2 Warhounds assembled but not painted at this point...and the Warmaster waiting in the box still. Further, the Warlord, Warbringer, and one Reaver are for Tempestus, which is a time consuming painting project with the many stages required to do the camouflage. 

Expect to see many more Adeptus Titanicus project posts here as I work through this backlog.  I don't intend to add any new titans beyond this - but then I don't know what will be released for the game either.  If we get new titan classes, then I'll be adding them, no doubt about that. Oh, and there are the weapon options which I hadn't mentioned yet.  I have amassed a large collection of weapon options which are also largely unpainted.  So that's something else that needs to get done! :)  And the terrain, can't forget that...

Anyway.  I love me some Adeptus Titanicus, so there's no worries there.  I have a lot of great hobby projects to look forward to.  I haven't decided yet which game system or force I want to tackle next. It just might be you'll see one of the unpainted engines up here soon.

That's it from the workbench this month.  Now back to painting.

Cheers And Happy Gaming!


  1. I'd love to be all in on AT, but I'd definitely have to give up something as I take far too long to paint them.

    1. Heh, I can certainly relate to that. My 30k/40k/Blackstone Fortress/Aeronautica Imperialis projects all suffer for my love of the tiny titans.

      But then, I'm not really giving up on anything if it is in the 40k universe. ;)
