I don't have a Titan, but I was given a free Baneblade the other week at my local GW.

I can't say I have any plans to expand on getting more or any titans as Apoc isn't something I play often at all.

I used to own both a Reaver and Warhound....Sold them due to people getting really pissed off if i brought them to apocalypse games........Plus they don't last long when 10 people only shoot at you

oh and my dog & cat found it fun to attack them -_-

If you are playing Apocalypse, they should expect things like those to show up...to me that's kinda what Apocalypse is about.

Ya but no one expects them to show up at a GW mega-battle against a horde of ultramarines in order to end the game quickly so the staff doesn't go insane keeping kids in order. (My warhound stomped Calgar to death LOL)

Well most kids think bringing a hoard of infantry with a few tanks constitutes a decent apoc force, they dont like it when people bring something bigger then them. I see alot of the bring Calgar to apoc games, and they think hes going to be awesome only to see him wiped out on the first turn, then the moaning starts lol.

I dont have a titan yet, but i do have a shadowsword, almost a titan lol, that remind me i must get some pics up on heresy.

I may not have a Titan... or a Shadowsword... but, I have a Terminus Ultra! That sucker is always fun in group games where its a 3 on 2 situation. Plus, if I had a Titan, especially of the Warhound variety, I would field as many as allowed.

Warhound(kitbash), Reaver(scratchbuilt) and a Khorne lord of battles(khorne demon engine of similar stature to a warhound. Third party model. Leviathan mortis). Yes we use them, several times in fact, good fun but they draw heaps of fire.

Indeed it is, although if you're opponent don't have the opportunity to also bring some big stuff of his own Apoc games can quickly become very one sided. So as much as you should expect big stuff, it is in no way necessary to make Apocalypse as fun as it is. Generally both sides should have an equal amount of big stuff (+ or - 1 or 2 depending on points size).

Just bringing titans to stomp newbies is a douchebag move.

Rant aside, Titans are what Apocalypse is all about so acquiring these engines of destruction should be on every apocalypse players to-do list.

I myself have an old armorcast warhound (with cheese lasers) and several baneblade variants. Especially my Stormblade has a special place in my heart (and so does making strange noises when firing that lovely plasma blastgun).
