Titan God Machine Pdf 27


"No weapon in the arsenal of the Imperium or the Traitor equals the Titan on the battlefield, and a Legion of such vast war machines can bring any world to its knees. In truth, a Titan has only three enemies: folly, hubris, and another of its own kind."

A Titan, sometimes colloquially called a "god-engine" or "god-machine," is any one of several classes of massive, crewed, robotic combat walkers fielded by the Titan Legions of the Adeptus Mechanicus' Collegia Titanica or by the forces of Chaos' Dark Mechanicum.

Titans are the most sacred war machines of the Adeptus Mechanicus and they are thought by the Cult Mechanicus to be the greatest physical embodiments of the Machine God in the material universe, rightly called "god-machines" and "god-engines" by the Tech-priests.

The first Titans were built during the Age of Strife on Mars, as a way for the newborn religion of the Cult Mechanicus and its Mechanicum government (the ancient, pre-Horus Heresy predecessor of the Adeptus Mechanicus) to effectively fight its enemies in the raging wars to reclaim the Red Planet's irradiated surface from feral mutants and insane thinking machines. After Mars had been secured by the Tech-priests, the Titans later accompanied the early Mechanicum colonial fleets sent blindly through the Warp from Mars that established the first Forge Worlds, leading to the creation of the Titan Legions -- armed forces made up entirely of Titans specific to that Forge World.

Imperial Titans are unique in the sense that their computer mind-cores or "Machine Spirits" in the lexicon of the Mechanicus are sentient, albeit in a highly-erratic manner. This is in contrast with the usually non-sentient "Machine Spirits" or onboard computer systems found in many other Imperial war machines like tanks and armored vehicles.

Like a god of destruction, the Warbringer Nemesis rains explosive death on its foes. This immense war machine is designed to obliterate the largest and most indomitable enemies at extreme range.

The colossal Mars-Alpha Pattern Warlord Titan is among the most ancient and feared of the Imperium's war machines. Forged on the Red Planet itself, it is worshipped and venerated as the Omnissiah's will incarnate, and each god-engine is encased in layered armour and powerful void shielding, and armed with weapons that are capable of reducing armies to ash.

In addition to its Ardex-Defensor Mauler Bolt Cannon and Lascannon turrets, support weapons that would be considered main armaments on smaller war machines, the Mars-Alpha Pattern Warlord is commonly fitted with a pair of carapace-mounted triple-barrelled Laser Blasters and two Belicosa Pattern Volcano Cannons.

More than a war machine, these tremendous Titans are also icons of worship to the Imperial Cult Mechanicus, as they are seen as an avatar of the Omnissiah; the most noteworthy feature of an Emperor Titan is the fortified castle structure that occupies its entire upper half. These cathedrals possess ornate features like spired towers and stained glass windows.

During the Dark Crusade, the planet Kronus was discovered to be home to the right arm and Hellstorm Cannon of the Imperator-class Emperor Titan Aquila Ignis, dismembered in a titanic battle during the Horus Heresy ten millennia prior. The Hellstorm Cannon was so large that its firepower carved a huge trench in front of where it lay.

Thousands of standard years before the rise of the Imperium, Mankind reached out to the stars and settled many far away worlds. Among the apparatus of colonisation were formidable war machines known as Knights, which existed to protect the settlers from any threat.

Knights are small combat walkers that are a one-man version of a Titan. However, a Knight is smaller and less capable in combat than even the smallest class of true Titan utilised by the Titan Legions, the Warhound-class Scout Titan. Knights normally deploy in squadrons comprised of several of these war machines. These ancient battlesuits stand thirty to f
