Titan Gladiator[edit]

Skorne Heavy Warbeast This model is in its faction's battle box

Favored warbeasts of the skorne, the versatile titans can be conditioned and equipped for a variety of battlefield roles. The titan gladiator is armed with massive spiked war gauntlets and uses its weapons and its armored body to pulverize enemy troops and warbeasts. The titan cannoneer is a mobile siege engine, blasting apart enemy formations with its gargantuan siege cannon. Finally, the titan sentry is a living wall, immovable and nearly impervious to enemy attacks behind its heavy shield and thick armor.

Analysis of the Titan Gladiator[edit]

The Titan Gladiator in a nutshell[edit]

The Titan Gladiator is an excellent value beatstick, able to pound enemy heavies - and able to support allied heavies with an excellent animus. It does what it does, does it well, and with relatively few frills - other than an excellent slam. It might not be an Angelius or Warpwolf Stalker - but it's significantly cheaper than both.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

  • Low Def
  • Slow without its animus and predictable threat ranges.

Tricks and Tactics[edit]

  • Always be on the lookout for a good Grand Slam.
  • Two handed throw anything you can't kill
  • Rush + Grand Slam + Follow Up can carry him really far across the table. Be careful of going outside of control range.

Other[edit]

Changes from Mk2[edit]

The Mk2 Titan Gladiator was, point for point, the best value melee heavy in the faction. Possibly the best value one in the game. The Mk3 one has a lower DEF and Paingiver Beast Handlers no longer give free charges. But on the other hand it's got more reach on its melee attacks - and it is significantly cheaper (meaning you get more pachyderm for the points). So it still carries out the old role and is probably better value; the only big change is that slams are going to be a lot more common.

It was the only model actually nerfed in the Great Skorne Errata, going up a point. Meaning it will go from auto-include to actually having to think about it.
