Where it all began. Adeptus Titanicus 1988 – 2018
Adeptus Titanicus is the game that first hooked me into the hobby back in 1998. It is true I had dabbled a bit in the early days of warhammer fantasy back when it was citadel miniatures before Games Workshop became a thing, but Titanicus is what drew me in. The canvas the game painted of truly apocalyptic war engines battling it out using city-levelling ordinance like walking battleships fired my imagination. The way the crews were linked to consciousness of their engines, the different factions and class of ‘Titans’. Just the scale of it would shape the hobby for me over the next three decades. I counted myself privileged to have been able to contribute even a small part to some of the games successors and in no small measure thrilled, when in 2018 the original was realised in full by Specialist Games. Titanicus and it’s successor ‘Epic’ still remain my favourite arena of conflict, both as a painter and a gamer.
