Upon full release, the game will also offer an exciting single-player campaign. Futuristic warfare Utilising the tabletop Titan Legions rules system as its foundation, Dominus features an easy-to-play yet deep strategic and tactical experience via its streamlined command system, which sees you and your opponent giving activation orders to your Titans, resulting in fast-paced battles. It successfully marries this strategic play with action sequences as the gargantuan Titans exchange volleys of cannon shots, blistering laser blasts and other epic, super-powered weapons of the far off future! Easy to play, challenging to master While luck will play a part as you trade blows with your foe on the futuristic battlefields of the 41st Millennium, your path to victory lies in your army list building and how you manoeuvre your units upon the battlefield. As a commander, you will have access to the most classic, iconic Titan units from the Warhammer 40, universe: Warhounds, Reavers and the gigantic Warlord, for both the Imperial and Chaos factions. Each of these Titans will have multiple variants available, featuring different weapon configurations, thereby enabling your Titans to fulfil the battlefield role your strategy demands. A living battlefield Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus features a "living battlefield" that employs unit and battlefield animations to show players the Warhammer 40, universe they know and love.
The game even includes additional callout boxes and blurbs that will clarify what to do should a unique situation occur that would cause potential rules contradictions. The rules begin with the basic rules, which explain the main parts of each phase and how they are conducted.
This section occasionally references other advanced rules that can apply and tells the player where to find them. Together the basic and advanced rules form the core rules of the game. Players are encouraged to use only the basic rules for their first few games, eventually adding the advanced rules to get the full experience. Rather than a player taking all of their actions in a phase, each player alternates activating a unit in each phase until all actions have been completed.
This means that the game features many tactical decisions, giving the player a variety of decisions to make with very little down time in the game. One thing that was evident early on in the basic rules is that the Repair Phase may take the most thought since Titans live and die by their void shields and weaponry. This phase allows players to fix downed void shields, cool their reactors, or repair damaged weapons.
However, dice luck will be important, and these limited dice are spent in a manner more akin to Warhammer Quest than simply attempting an action and rolling a die.
In particular, the Combat Phase is very detailed. Players will need to consider where they are taking fire from, where they will be firing at, and the order in which they will use their weapons. It will also lead to players needing to consider not just which weapons fire first on a Titan, but which Titans fire first since some will be more effective at cracking shields than others, while others are designed to deliver punishing death blows. The advanced rules add upon the basic rules by implementing stratagems tricks and ploys , orders for individual Titans, and terrain types.
These rules also add additional effects on Titan plasma reactors, awakened Machine Spirits, Titan squadrons, and Knight support.
The addition of Knight support is covered in a separate review. The advanced rules, while somewhat small in comparative size to the base rules, also add major changes to the gaming experience.
However, while these rules are listed as advanced, they feel like they could have been thrown in from the start. The final section of the rules are the optional rules, which fit on a single page.
These rules cover the ability to overload void shields willingly, destroying terrain, stray shots, and power transfer from one area of the Titan to another. Unlike the advanced rule, which are eventually added to regular games, the optional rules are, as their name says, optional at all times. Some of these changes are cinematic, while others provide tactical options.
It would certainly be nice to see the optional rules expanded at a later stage. The section then goes on to describe the three different play modes in Adeptus Titanicus. People who have played Warhammer 40, 8th edition or Warhammer: Age of Sigmar will be familiar with the three play modes.
Open Play allows players to build their battlegroup however they wish, with no restrictions. Narrative and Matched Play require at least one maniple type to be in the force.
These play modes also make use of the points and Battle Rating system in the game. It is a very new game so it does feel more on it's own than some of the other box-set games. I really would like to see another kick at the can of releasing a new and improved "Epic" game but I think this is not it.
The scale is just big enough to keep everything around a "skirmish" sized game, it feels like it is trying to compete with 40k: the Epic game was for playing those huge battles for a couple hours hat take a few days to play as Apocalypse.
I have not seen any of the boxes move at my local hobby shop, I love the models but not enough to download them and it looks like I would not have anyone to play. Slight issue - let me guess, you're going by the whole "it's 8mm" thing? Because it's not, it's around scale which puts a load of classic Epic stuff exactly in-scale or very near it, and a lot of third-party stuff the same - Vanguard's entire "6mm" infantry range, for example, or that third party not-Lucius Warlord.
If you're letting folk in your area be put off by the scale, you're letting them be put off by a myth. I'm also not sure what folk are waiting for regarding the game feeling "fleshed out", beyond the weapon sprues which aren't actually required to play not that I excuse GW for failing to release them alongside their respective Titans, mind. Whereas the warlord is tougher than a reaver because of its much higher toughness, a reaver is tougher than a war hound because of its almost double wounds, allowing it to take more than double the punishment thanks to its improved void shield.
Can take two arm mounted weapons and one carapace mounted weapon, and is the smallest Titan which can take melee weapons which you're obligated to take because they look AWESOME.
Holy shit, a new titan. All five people who can actually afford to play this army are sure to be thrilled. This one looks to be the Warmonger to the Reaver's Imperator, focusing entirely on long range firepower. Apart from two standard looking arm weapons and a pair of quad auto-cannons, it's packing a monstrous gun on its back as a carapace weapon.
Toughest thing in the game right now, even if it's not highest in wounds. Mounts 2 arm weapons, 2 carapace weapons, and a few tertiary weapons that can overwatch for it. Most of its weapons have a min range of 24" and a max range that's largely irrelevant because no one plays on boards 30 feet long. The important thing to remember when deciding on what weapon is best for your titan is that direct damage output is not the only thing to think about, each weapon has maximum and in some cases minimum ranges, cover ignoring abilities, re-rolls or aoe damage.
Although some weapons are a little meh, for the others you must take into account how they fit into the whole. First choice: Turbo laser destructor, although it's not competition really, it out performs both the overcharged blastgun and doesn't inflict mortal wounds to your titan on 1's and the inferno gun against all targets except infantry and T7 and below, where the inferno guns extra hits really shine.
A single volley from this gun is enough to destroy knights and baneblades and is by far your best weapon for sparring with other warhounds and the like, take it, no exceptions.
Second choice: Third choice wildcard: Inferno Gun, shorter ranged than the mega bolter and a little overkill when it comes to infantry chewing, but there is one excellent reason for why you might want to take this, overwatch, as this will throw out 14 auto hitting shots at anything stupid enough to charge your Titan, and its niche against T7 models should not be overlooked.
If you would like alternative weapons for your Titans, or would prefer Chaos Titan bodies, we'll be happy to create a bundle for you with the same great value. Please note:
