Default Space Marines & Titans

a simple question, do Space Marines use Titans? or is that just fluff?

Space Marines do not use Titans in fluff or otherwise, the Titan Legions usually work with the Adeptus Mechanicus. Very old fluff used to say Marines had Titans but that is not canon any longer as it has been overwritten many times now.

Marines can take a Warhound Titan from Forge World as an Ally I think but I'm not sure about that.

The Titans are under the authorita of the Collegia Titanicus. The Collegia answers directly to the Cult Mechanicus, and as such the Astartes have no authority over them.

However, as stated, the Collegia and Astartes can fight together.

And you don't want to be the person who's dealing with the Astartes and the Titan legions.

Quick Titan related question, what if any are the differences between the following?

Collegia Titanicus
Adeptus Titanicus
Legio Mortis

It'd probably look awesome. If you get one feel free to paint in that colour scheme. It could be something as simple as that particular titan group uses grey as their standard colour, to something as complex and story driven as a way of honouring some past battle where that titan group and the space wolves worked together.

The Collegia Titanicus is the organisation that the Adeptus Titanicus belongs to. The useage of the two terms has become a little vague and inter-mixed, but it is likely that the Adeptus Titanicus are trained by the Collegia.

Legio Mortis is a Titan Legion.

Thank you!

I've been reading the Horus Heresy novels, one book two, that's what prompted the Legio Mortis question.

Hmm... well, it might be the name of a specific Titan, but "Legio" suggests to be a Titan Legion. Without knowing the context of the name, I can't say for certain.

Yes the Legio Mortis is a Titan Legion, one that turned Traitor if I remember.

The Deus Irae (sp?) was the Titan shown in the recent Horus Heresy books.
