Default New Reaver Titan Weapons

The Reaver is a Battle Titan protected by thick adamantine armour, powerful void shields and bearing devestating weapons. Two weapons such weapons in the arsenal of the Titan Legions are the Reaver Titan Volcano Cannon and the Reaver Titan Chainfist.
The Reaver Titan Volcano Cannon is the largest weapon that the Titan's frame can support. This colossal cannon can unleash a beam of destructive energy detonating into a huge explosion at the point of impact.
As effective at breaching fortifications and strong points as it is at rending Warmachines and enemy Titans and Gargants of the savage Ork empires, the Reaver Titan Chainfist brutal close assault weapon composed of contra-rotating teeth surrounded by a powerful disrupting energy field.
These two titan weapons are multi-part resin kits that can be used for either the left or right arms on the Reaver Titan and Chaos Reaver Titan Body kits. These weapons can be used in both Horus Heresy games and standard games of Warhammer 40,000, rules for using Reaver titans can be found in The Horus Heresy Book One Betrayal, Warhammer 40,000 Apocalypse and Imperial Armour Volume Thirteen - War Machines of the Lost and the Damned.

This is a complete resin kit. It is available to pre-order now and will be despatched from Friday 13th February.

I looked at these on the site then the price made me giggle. 50 for a single weapon. I know the Reaver Titan is meant to be the ultimate War Machine, but damn. I just don't get how anyone can ever justify spending that much for a single weapon, especially for a model most people would be lucky to use a few times a year.

They really need to through up a size comparison picture just to show the size of the weapons.

I like the look of the volcano cannon, it is not over done looks realistic, I would however like to see a comparison in size to the volcano cannon on the shadow sword tank, as the same weapons on different models can vary greatly, such as heavy bolters for example

Actually they did, sorta:


Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

Having a gander at images online and at the pic @darkreever put up, the scale of the canmon looks quite similar to the shadowsword albeit a bit thicker, alas I'll not be affording a reaver titan ever I think!

Only about 1k USD for the body, missile launcher, and three weapon arms for variety; all in all thats not to bad. Especially when you consider there was a point last year when that same setup would have been the down-payment on a car.
