Titan Fight! Part 2

This week, we finish Titan Fight! by looking at the Titans from Tyranids (they have a lot) and Imperial Guard.

Last week, we reviewed all the Titan cards from the original four races in the Warhammer 40K CCG. This week, we review the Tyranid and Imperial Guard Titans. Which ones will make the cut? Let’s dive in!

Reaver Titan

Race: Imperial Guard

Pros: HUGE stats (highest base firepower in the game). Invulnerable save. Repeatable assault ability. 

Cons: No flags. Bad die roll. VERY bad command line.

Rating: 6.75/10 – Excessively Cool and Impractically Shooty

Heirophant

Race: Tyranids

Pros: High assault value. Invulnerable save. Repeatable destroy ability (while charging). Can use a rally ability at the end of a battle to clean up multiple vehicles.

Cons: Bad die roll. Bad command line. Unique. Nonflag unit.

Rating: 6.75/10 – Subsists On An Iron-Heavy Diet

Scythed Heirodule

Race: Tyranids

Pros: Flag unit. High assault value (most of the time). Potentially devastating reaction ability. Shiny foil.

Cons: Low die roll. Bad command line. Unique (don’t put two at a sector! Seriously).

Rating: 6.5/10 – Don’t Assault Me Bro

Viciator

Race: Tyranids

Pros: Flag unit. Very high assault value. Invulnerable save. Brutal ability vs. opposing vehicles. Situational but strong command line.

Rating: 7.5/10 – A Solid Chungus

Barbed Heirodule

Rating: 7/10 – Momma’s Gonna Knock You Out

Ancient Kraken

Race: Tyranids

Cons: Nonflag. Difficult test on command line.

Rating: 7.5/10 – We’re Mad As Hell

Hope you enjoyed this semi-serious review of all the Titan cards in the 40K CCG. It’s safe to say that the majority of them are built more for coolness than for gameplay efficiency – which is totally fine in my book!
