Hey guys I need a question answered. Is there another type/class of Titan higher than an Imperator? Surely there would be some uber specil ones on Terra.
:rofl:Metal Gear Ray... ergh.. wait.. what?
You dare mention that franchise in my presence! My perverted humour would be sated for eon`s if only I could watch Altair tear apart Solid Snake in single-combat.Metal Gear Ray... ergh.. wait.. what?
Nice points but heheh check out the typo, I couldn't resist, I almost spit oj out of my noise.You dare mention that franchise in my presence! My perverted humour would be sated for eon`s if only I could watch Altair tear apart Solid Snake in single-combat.
In response to the Castigator, then yes, the Standard Template Construct was destroyed by Brother-Captain Halvarn, Alric and several other Grey Knight Astartes. That said, the daemonic-entity within the Castigator clearly states it pre-dates the Horus Heresy and even the Age of Strife for that matter, thus dating its creation to the Dark Age of Technology, and henceforth it is free of any Dark Mechanicus corruption. I don`t think this ''Father of Titans'' is larger than an Imperator-Class anyway; it is only described as towering above Warhound`s, Reaver`s and Warlords.
Imperator-Class Titans are perhaps the most common type of Emperor amongst the more ancient Legio`s, although I have never heard of this ''Warmonger-class''.
That merely is the conventional tiers of Titans. I am sure the Dark Mechanicus, alongside the Iron Warrior`s and Black Legion have at some time created individual-Titans, infused with daemons, corrupting machine-spirits, that far exceed even Imperator. However, short of Medengrand (Perturabo`s Fortress within the Eye of Terror I believe) I couldn`t see how anything larger than a Warlord could be conventionally lifted to-and-fro from conflicts atmospherically-to-orbit.
Also, I should be forgiven for believing that often more ''modern'' (if ever the term could be used for the Mechanicus:laugh Legio`s and Forge Worlds would make various sub-classes of standard Titans, or repair damaged ones in varying ways; similar to that said by Edd and his exmaple of factory-borne Lemas Russes, often leading to unique customisation on Titans, although usually only upon the very largest in decorial ways (Cathedrals and the like).
You must remember that Titans (Quoted from both Titanicus and Helsreach) are not tools of God-shattering destruction. They are amongst the most revered artifacts by the Mechanicus and even Imperium. To the former, perhaps only STD`s and the Ordinatus are higher in religious-significance.
And of course, Orks and their chaotic ways, often create scrap-Titan`s far exceeding that of an Imperator, as shown in Helsreach with the Gargant Godbeaker duelling with the Imperator Stormherald
Finally, I would not be suprised if the Necron C`tan the Void Dragon beneath Mars holds some Platinum-class Titans of truly unimaginable proportion (Dream on Black Library fans, this will never happen)
