SCIENCE FICTION REVIEW: Warhammer 40k: Titanicus - Dan Abnett


When the vital forge world of Orestes comes under attack by a legion of Chaos Titans, the planet is forced to appeal for help. Titan Legio Invicta, although fresh from combat and in desperate need of refit and repair, responds, committing its own force of war engines to the battle. As the god-machines stride to war, the world trembles, for the devastation they unleash could destroy the very world they have pledged to save.

Savage Titan action on an apocalyptic scale and dark political intrigue meet head-on in this Warhammer 40,000 epic.


With all the books out there in the 40K world there's one that's been missing for quite sometime, a tale of the god machines so the reader could stalk the battlefield in these giant behemoths dealing death to the enemy both foot soldiers as well as the enemies machines. Perhaps because this is so fresh that Abnetts sheer quality comes through allowing him the freedom to write the tale that he wanted without having to follow too many rules. A definite buy for fans of the Epic world or fans of the beautifully crafted models by Forge World, but if you truly want to see destruction rained down from on high to the maximum offensive ability then this is the tale for you.
