So, what’s this all about? i guess ‘robots’ would be the obvious answer. Preferably the type that are BIG and STOMPY, with a penchant for slow, deliberate bust-ups with one another – causing as much damage as they can, in the most cinematic way possible. Throw in the ‘Grim Dark’ point-of-extinction setting of Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000, and you have the essence of what Big Stompy Robots is all about.
We’re a group of gamers currently based in the north east of England, playing the game Adeptus Titanicus by Games Workshop.
Adeptus Titanicus is a tabletop game of devastating combat between awe-inspiring god-machines, set during the civil war that tore the galaxy apart. Two players take control of a variety of Titans – colossal, bipedal war engines covered in thick armour and weapons which can level a city in a single salvo. It is a strategic challenge in which you pit your skill and cunning against your opponent in a battle to the death; a test of tactical skill demanding the management of the resources at your disposal, determining the optimal reactions to the evolving state of the battlefield. – Games Workshop 2020
