Default Titans

OK a few thing have been on my mind about titans. The first one is that if there so rare and hard to reproduce how long will it be till the emperiam runs out?
Second is how big is a titan.
And what is your favorite titan class and why. for me its the emperator class. I LOVE all that firepower ;D

The Imperium probably won't run out, as they can still build them, but just not as well as STC constructed titans.

IIRC, and I probably don't here, a Warhound Titan is about 50-60 metres tall.

I like the Warhound class the most. Just the feral, hunched look. It seems more beast than construct, almost alive if you will.

From my understanding just about anything tech-wise in the Imperium can be recreated just nobody knows how it works anymore so they cannot innovate. Such as the Bolter for instance.

They are exceptionally big. From what I've read, the smallest has feet the size of a Land Raider .

I actually like Eldar Warlock Titans. They are just nasty. Imagine the Eldar Phantom Titan with psychic powers and you have a Warlock.

They can be produced pretty fast, actually. For example, during the second Armageddon war, almost the entirety of the Legio Metalica was destroyed, yet it was built back up to full strength for the third Armageddon war, fifty years later.

That is simply not true. There are those in the AdMech conservatives that are opposed to creating and innovating, but there are also those of the more liberal stance.

Whilst I imagine the Imperium would have trouble producing psi-titans and warmongers (if warmongers do indeed exist and isn't just fanboy fiction), they as said produce other titans at a fast enough rate.

Just kind of a spinoff question: how many imperator class titans are there, has anyone ever took one down, when would they ever need to use somthing like that?

Whihc ones the biggest?

Is there an Emperor Class titan? If so is it the biggest? if not, then why dont they make one, and it can fly through space and take out entire cities with 1 shot... And it should be a psi-titan aswell...

And then there would be a book where 1 farseer rips its head off with psi attacks cos farseers are just that good


On to a more real note.

Id say Imperator Titans are my fave. Somethign about a giant metal doodad that can obliterate tanks with a flick of its finger (well, sort of) just makes me smile and then wish I played Imperium... Warlock titans are also incredibly awesome... They should have an Eldrad class titan. He would be the greatest titan and he could kill Slannesh himself (if that was possible)

The so called "Emperor Class" titans are just Imperators and Warmongers.
