Dragged into Turbolasers Episode 37: Games Workshop Adepticon announcements

Perfect blue.

We spend this episode discussing Games Workshop’s announcements from Adepticon 2018. First we talk about the new revealed Knight Titan and contrast it with the smaller Armiger Knight that was recently released. Afterwards we transition into talking about the newest Age of Sigmar army, the Idoneth Deepkin. We briefly discuss some of the new models and how they fit alongside the other armies.

  1. So the special character gets good looking realistic body proportions while the rank and file remain stupid looking "heroic scale". What's the thought process here GW?

    1. Yeah that is an interesting point. I feel it is just not really something they considered too much. They left designers sculpt stuff and since they looked okay, that was good enough.

  2. Maybe the knights will have a conversion kit that will allow them to be used as a Warlord or whatever when Adeptus Titanicus gets released...? I like the new bigger knight but I don't really like the smaller one (I think it's the legs, they don't look right to me, too fancy and not brutal enough for my liking to suit the lore). I agree totally with your comments about the codex--a major reason why I rarely buy anything GW these days, it seems to need further purchases very soon after to keep it relevant...
    The Idoneth Deepkin are sort of cool, at least I agree the leader is a very good model in and of himself. I agree with most of your other comments--at this stage I'm interested to see more but the rank and file foot soldiers aren't very interesting, and the anglerfish/executioner is breathtakingly stupid, but overall interesting.

    1. Yeah, the smaller knight just doesn't look quite right. Something about the legs makes it look like it is wearing pants that were pulled up way too high, ha ha. I feel they kept to close to the larger knight design because it was easier.

  3. Excellent as always guys. I feel like when they announced the return of Adeptus Titanicus they mentioned all the models were done at 40k scale. I cant help but think that this is a very clever corning cutting on GW's part to double down the money with essentially the same mold as far as that knight goes. I have no problem with that honestly if thats the case. I like the model over all and if anything would definitely think about converting it for use as an Imperator Titan for Epic scaled gaming, it really nails that look for sure. The deepkin are a very surprising development that I definitely didnt see coming, I am honestly real excited about the washed up shipwreck scenery they seem to be shown with. Definitely a lot of good looking bits for conversions to say the least.

    1. It will be really interesting to see if they use the Titanicus stuff to aid in making new knights. It certainly seems possible. I did think they suggested the first few models for it would be identical to the FW 40k titans and just scaled down.

  4. Thanks for another nice episode! Its always a pleasure to start the day with you guys. I share your opinion on the turtle. That has always been the case, but it seems there are no plant eaters in the warhammer world. Every monster needs monster teeth, even a triceratops. Or a turtle. Or the ray on the base of the water-cloak guy -which is indeed a cool figure. Even if his helmet-crest would make movement under water quite comlicated.
    I wonder why the octopus doesn't have teeth. Wouldn't it look so much cooler with a big fucking grin on it's face? Haha

    1. Thanks as always for listening, we are glad people enjoy them! Yeah, unfortunately all creatures in GW worlds need huge teeth, to the point that they start merging together...
