Ok, not exactly much to show here except the poster below.

Quote:
However talking to Andy Hoare, Mark Bedford and Chris Drew I can mention the following:

The game is set during the Horus Heresy in the spirit of the original Adeptus Titanicus.
It will begin with just Titans.
The scale will be 8mm - They decided on this scale after 3D printing a Marine, Dread, Leman Russ, Warlord and a Mastodon in three different scales. 8mm was deemed the best as you could see the details to the point of telling different armour marks apart but didn't make the Titans too big.
8mm will make a Warlord around 6" tall (that's what it looked like why Andy Hoare put his hands apart, don't blame me if the final model is smaller or larger...).
The models will be produced in resin by Forge World.
Typical force may be in the region of two Warlords, two Reavers and two-three Warhounds.
More Titan variants are possible.
Down the road infantry and tanks are to be introduced.
Other forces are also possible, this includes Xenos which can be introduced in a themed expansion, e.g. Adeptus Titanicus: Armageddon to bring in the Orks.
Currently the Titans are being 3D modelled by Chris Drew, the Warlord has been done as the 40k version was originally 3D modelled so it was a case of just scaling things down and getting it to work as a model which can be manufactured.


Current epic is generally more like 8mm so that will work well if they stick with it.

I'm pretty excited for this. I loved Titanicus by Dan Abnett and the original titanicus game was awesome. The prices from forgeworld will be what puts me off though.

Really looking forward to this.

Adeptus Titanicus was ruined, ruined I tell you, with the addition of infantry and tanks.

The bigger scale is cool as well. Given the level of detail GW can cram on their kits, it's going to look fantastic.

I agree, Titan v. Titan action is the business.

And reactor meltdowns that take out half the battlefield are also important.
