Hey guys, has anyone written up a decent Warlord Imperator Titan for DS2? I have a DS2 game coming up soon and I'm currently working on several projects, both game and real world related, so I'm hoping that some other industrious person has worked this out. Thanks either way.

Have not seen any stats for one myself – It will of course be a fire magnet as most large walkers are in DS2. However, those big cannon will do some damage!

I imagine it will be horribly expensive and very vulnerable. DS2 is not kind to walkers.

I fielded a Reaver Titan in DS before. It got killed by a Size 1 enemy vehicle when my opponent drew a 'Boom' chit.

Primarch gave me this link for all his Epic to DS2 conversions:

Can't remember if there is an Imperator in there, but all the other Titans are modular, so you might get some inspiration on how to make from there.

That's just a bad port, you need to make changes to the base assumptions of DS2 to make titans viable. Any kind of titan it should be a superheavy modular design, and you should certainly treat "BOOM" chits as null and void for them.

a superheavy modular design, and you should certainly treat "BOOM" chits as null and void for them.

For a modular design, a "BOOM!" chit should only affect one module.

I think I styled it as a large walker and not a modular vehicle? Can't remember the details – this was 20 years ago…

I designed that and the Megagargant as modular… the megagargant was equipped with two nuclear missiles and weighed in at about 2000 points IIRC…

@ Yquilla- Wow, that would be fun.
I understand that walkers are vulnerable. I just want to plop that sucker down and have some fun.
@ Tim- Thanks for the link. Hopefully there will be something already, but a headstart is still good.

Note: The document at the link provided by Tim White does contain stats for Warhound, Reaver and Warlord titans, however the Imperator titan (the walking Vatican with guns) is absent.

I have it now from one of the links on that page. I'll check them tomorrow or Thursday. The Imperator costed at a little over 10K!

Hi!

My conversions do indeed include the Imperator as well as the Mega-gargant.

They are of multi-modular design and include rules for their unique weapons, shields, among other things.

The conversion list, while faithful to the DS 2 rules, include a lot of extrapolations, new systems and a whole host of other things to simulate the "feel" of the 40k universe with DS 2 rules.

The Imperator is constructed from 12 modules and worth over 10k points!

The conversions include rules for all titans from all races with full rules for their unique weaponry.

It's a little dated though. It does not include a lot of the more recent units. The file is over 15 years old.

Perhaps its time I updated it. :)
