Titan Vs Titans – GW’s New EPIC Game?

By Rob Baer | January 17th, 2016 | Categories: News / Rumors

40k Flashback Titan Legions- Little Big Men

It looks like GW has their sights set on bringing back EPIC with a more of an emphasis to Titan on Titan battles! Come see the EPIC latest!

We all know Specialist Games is coming back BUT besides Blood Bowl, we haven’t really seen anything on the “immediate” horizon for releases.

One lucky gamer looks to have had a chat with someone who may know a bit more than the official word out of Nottingham.

Apply normal amounts of salt on this one folks.

Andy Hoare is going to be the new head of Specalist Games, and he told me at the birthday thing that Epic was the game he was most looking forward to working on. I could see it being an obvious second choice after Blood Bowl. Forgeworld used to make some really nice Epic versions of their 40k kits.

He also mentioned he wanted to make it more about Titans fighting other Titans.

Forge World are also taking over Hobbit/Lord of the Rings allthough that isn’t being headed up by Andy Hoare. Some other Guy. Seems like Forge world is going to be devided into three rules development teams. 30k and 40k under Alan Bligh, Specialist Games, under Andy Hoare. and Lord of the Rings/Hobbit. With Tony Cottrell overseeing all three branches.

The other impression I got, was that at least for blood bowl, The initial boxed set will be created like a GW studio product. Plastic teams and such. And then all the support products will be Resin. In the same way, there is now a HH boxed game produced by the studio.

Interesting rumors indeed, but there may something behind them. Remember back in November when Games Workshop opened a bunch of new studio positions up for applicants? Well check this out:

About the Job:

Do you want to be responsible for designing and developing an exciting new range specialist games and models including reimagining some of the old favourites such as Blood Bowl, Battlefleet Gothic and Adeptus Titanicus?”

So it would make sense given the inclusion of  Adeptus Titanicus in the job posting that they may be looking to go that route. The question may be in this day in age will the models be reasonably priced, and not small and fiddly like in the past?
Would you play a new reincarnation of EPIC if it was reasonably priced and/or the miniatures we’re cool?
