2,500 tons of awesome.
After huge expense and hundreds of hours of work, the Adeptus Titanicus: The Horus Heresy battle report is here!
I did manage to put off diving into the very deep money pit that is Adeptus Titanicus: The Horus Heresy for some time, but after numerous recommendations from gamers I respect, I bit the bullet and bought a starter set. Little did I know I’d soon be buying another starter set, then more models! Then there was the building, the painting, the complex magnetising … and it still didn’t stop there—I even magnetised the titan templates and markers!
The new Adeptus Titanicus (you can see my battle report of the original game here) is a great game, but be prepared—it’s teeth-grindingly expensive, a truly premium tabletop miniatures game. And with weapon cards, dashboards, and extra books sold separately, you’ll often feel like your wallet is being strip-mined in an astonishingly cynical way. But beyond the pain (and if you don’t mind a bit of complexity), you’ll be left with an epic game of huge titans stomping across battlefields, unleashing devastatingly huge weapons at each other; and a great set of rules by ex-Games Workshop, now Needy Cat Games designer James Hewitt (and others) that’s a love letter to the original game and the pinnacle of tabletop spectacle. Witness this battle report!
