    The imagery on those armour panels is looking awesome. How did you do it?

    On the subject of titans. I have finished (for now at least) a couple of Adeptus Titanicus titans the Legio Artarus (Firebrands). For now at least because I am hoping that they will release a transfer sheet for these, so I have held of on that kind of detailing and the weathering that will be done after. Still I am pleased with them as they stand. I have other weapons to complete so I can swap these (they are all magnetised) and a three other variant heads too. This project is ongoing. Legio Fureans next. All that yellow is going to be a new challenge for me. Anyway, the Warlord:

    Second votes for Pocket Hive (two player only) and coup. Love Letters would work too.

    The details on these were achieved with the transfers from the House Grifonicus transfer sheet. Behind that is a pretty simple paint scheme: Assemble in two sub-assemblies. Body and carapace. You can see the separates for the others in my previous photo. Body is spayed with Leadbelcher and washed with Nuln Oil Gloss. That gives you a great start. Green, gold, ivory and a few details, all done.

    I look forward to whatever is coming. We know they will start selling the Warlord and Reaver weapon sprues separately in the new year. I hope they also include the Warhound weapon sprues. That kit comes with all the guns but only enough for one of each for each titan. Having magnetised my assembled Warhounds, more to allow for any combination would be welcome. I would like to see more weapons and knight variants too. Also other weapon options for the knights which were released without carapace weapons. I am confident that there will be more titans to come. Chaos variants and other races seem likely but we shall have to see. I would like to see another scenery kit too. The Civitas stuff is brilliantly flexible but still ends up a bit homogenous. An industrial zone type variant with that kind of flexibility would be most welcome. Anyway, House Vyronii loyalist knight one is complete. Only 2 more of those, 2 Warlords and 4 Warhounds to go.... Keep on painting.

    That depends on how well the game continues to do I guess. And as far as I have been told, it has sold very well so far. Plans to support it continue. Whether it comes to going "full epic" will remain to be seen. As it stands, I can see how they could add other races and vehicles and maybe flyers but I struggle to see how the rule set could be extended to cover infantry. The rules would not scale to it easily. They are very detailed. I have hopes though.

    This is the current state of my Adeptus Titanicus pile of shame. ( Not shown: a couple more Warhounds.) Likely getting more for Xmas too. On the plus side I have painted all these buildings and the 3 knights I have shown of in the Miniatures appreciation thread. Also in the background, some Grave Guard that are the tip of an icebergs worth of skeletons and ghosts that await attention.

    Depends on your budget. Kill Team is a small figure count game for the sci-fi side of things. It will support using miniatures from across the whole range so will play well with what he already has. There are a couple of different starter sets at £80, but that may be too much. You could just get the rule book for £25.

    You leave me with the impression that you would rather start with a proper wargame, as an introduction and taster that might lead them into other things too. I think the Middle-Earth one is a good bet. Their recent re-release is a consolidation and revision of all the rules for that game that could be considered the definitive version.There is a £90 starter set that is terrific value: https://www.games-workshop.com/en-GB/Lotr-Battle-Of-Pelennor-Fields-2018-eng Let us know how you get on.

    Both games are pretty good. Middle- Earth would be a better introduction to wargaming. Might also be worth considering Kill-Team or Necromunda for some squad level stuff. Low miniature counts make it low barrier for entry. GW have no real equivalent to the complexity of the (excellent) 3rd edition anymore. They have pursued accessibility instead of those simulationist tendancies that characterized that era. I have enjoyed getting into Age of Sigmar, although I eschew the more colourful high fantasy elements, preferring to stick to the more dark fantasy miniatures like the undead stuff. My scenery collection is strictly old school trees, hedges, walls and medieval through tudorish buildings that can do double duty in my English Civil War games.

    The Genestealer bikes and quad are really nice. And that map is properly great. It harks back to an unreleased sculpt from the first time around. Games Workshop supposing both nostalgia for people like me, at 45 with spare cash, while also supporting cheaper entry level stuff like Underworlds and Killteam is a great play. Warhammer World was awesome. I will post some exhibition photos when I am able.

    In Nottingham this weekend. Planning a visit to Warhammer World, either tomorrow or Sunday. Really looking forward to it. They are having the Vigilus Weekender, which might mean the place is super busy. I shall have to see.
