Adeptus Titanicus playtest

 Playtest of the rulebook with two warlords apiece, Legio Metalica vs Mortis.

Imperius Galgamech: 2x support missiles, CCW, volcano cannon
Imperius Tenebrus, macro gatling, 2x plasma blasters, melta cannon

Bodil: volcano cannon, gatling, CCW, support missile
Calvaria: 2x support missiles, macro gatling blaster, volcano cannon
 The titans begin by firing their support missiles, wich fail completely
 After its void are knocked down by a gatling salvo, a melta shot sees the right warlord immobilized
 Imperius Galgamech tries to generate too much plasma points, its reactor overheats leaving it exposed and with the shields down. The enemy quickly pummels the warlord with massed firepower, frying the princeps and takig the titan out of the battle

Now all alone Imperius Tenebrus first destroys all the weapons from the immobilized Mortis, and then massing its awesome firepower against the second engine kills it with a lucky plasma bolt to the knee. The traitor titan sways for a moment, falling to the ground in flames. 
That puts an end to the battle with the imperial winning 525 to 175.

I'm quite happy about how the rules played. The engagement was a very ranged one, so CCW weren't that much useful, but perhaps it was due to our playstyle. The best weapon for the warlord was proved to be the macro gatling blaster, destroying shields and weapons with equal ease, whereas the missiles were pretty underwhelming.
