I have heard of this brand of titans before, but I can't remember where or anything much about them.

I only know that they are crewed by psychers and should be pretty rare. Any info or tips where to find info is greatly appreciated.

They use psychic weaponry mounted on a Warlord chassis, I believe. It's not so much that the crew are all psychic (though some might be - I haven't got the material to hand, but I can check), and the princeps and moderati probably wouldn't be. Knowingly, at least. :D

The information is from Adeptus Titanicus, way back from the late eighties, though references have been made since then. ;)

Here is a "Psi-Titan" of the Eldar:

Thank you for clearing that up, I thought that psi-titans used a chassis of their own. Would that psychic weaponary be anything like what the Eldar use on their Warlock class titans?

Something similar, but definitely less advanced. The Eldar are almost unparalleled in warp technology, so I don't expect the Mechanicus to know nearly as much.

After checking, there isn't anything more to do with the psy-titans themselves apart from the fact that they operate from a secret Forgeworld near Mars, but I have found a picture (http://www.collecting-citadel-miniatures.com/wiki/images/thumb/b/bc/Limited_Release_-_Epic_Imperial_PSI_Titan.jpg/398px-Limited_Release_-_Epic_Imperial_PSI_Titan.jpg) of the Psi-Titan, on a beetleback Warlord chassis. :)

Nice find! I suppose the only place you could get that model would be ebay though;).

Yeah, it wasn't on sale for long IIRC. I remember once reading a topic on Epicomms (or was it the old SG Epic forums?) about how people had only seen psi-titans once or twice on ebay, and they had never been able to buy them when they did, mainly because of the insane prices they went for. :)

Still - you might be lucky; and in the end, you can always just make your own onto a modern Warlord model and proxy it, though I'm not sure if the rules are still out there. :)
