Default Want to start a titan legion *~*

Hey everyone,

While reading Galaxy In Flames, i fell in love with titans and decided that starting a titan legion would be alot of fun. I found a set of templates, but can't make heads of tails of them, not every where i tried making a mock up with paper.

When i asked my brother how i should go about it, he recommended that i discover a diamond the size of myself, and then buy the titans off of Forgeworld.

I was hoping someone on here would have some better ideas, any suggestions help.

Also, i was thinking of using dreadnaughts as Knights, would this be an adequate representation or should i use something else.

Thanks

What about playing Adeptus Mechanicus?
It's an old game which is about titan legions fighting, it's in epic scale, can get the rules form the specialist games website

As TimJim said, Epic would be a good bet. Massive battles but with smaller models. You can get Titans Legion for a hundredth of the price.

The rules for Epic are here, with some 'Experimental Rules' for Titan Legions on this page.

At my local GW there used to be some good converted titans made from defilers, sentinel bodies for the heads and whatever weapons you have lieing around, maybe this would be a good route for your titan legion.

Hey Beowulf,

I'm making a Titan Legion. I'll probably do a Warhound/start half the Warlord when I get halfway through all my other crap that I've got going. I'm going to do it out of plasticard and cardboard, and I've already got all the personnel and background for my Legion sorted.

I only have a template for the Warhound, I'm going to work out the Warlord and Reavers. Shouldn't be too difficult really. Plasticard, card, loo rolls, poster tubes... it'll be simple enough. It's all just big panels and lines. The issue is the Imperial Eagles and all that stuff... so the simple answer? Ignore them. The slightly more complicated answer? GS them. Shouldn't be too hard.

As for Knights, I wouldn't use them at all. You're not going to be playing normal games with a Titan so you have no fear for balance, just bring them down to an Apocalypse game and have them run riot. I don't see me ever having more than six Warhounds on a table, or two Warlords (this is a table that has the combined area of three 8'x4' boards).

My advice to you for your Legion is go for it. Order some plasticard and take a run at it. Once you kick off it's not so bad.

Or just play Epic, which appealed to me briefly but... it's nowhere near as silly and it's much easier to just bring even a Warlord down to an Apoc game than to find someone who'll play Epic Titan Legions with you!
