Hello, i will read through the Epic rulebook someday but before i even bother i'd like to know if you can field an army entirely of Titans. I skimmed through the book and was under impression that you could only take them as allies sort of no? So can you make a (legal) army of Titans (That is Imperial Titans; Imperator, Warlord, Reavener, Warhounsd) and is it a viable army to play?

Using the core rules/army lists, no. Only marines, Eldar, and 2 variants each of IG and Orks have published rules/lists, all of which can field limited numbers of titans or gargants.

However the game has been almost entirely player-driven for several years now, and include armies which field all titans such as the Adeptus Mechanicus Titan Legion (AMTL) list:

Others include eldar titan hosts and Ork gargant warbands.

http://www.tacticalwargames.net hosts all the updated army lists and ongoing testing/refinements.

The current AMTL list can be found from SG experimental section.

As said above, the answer is an emphatic 'yes'.

That is not entirely accurate. There is a CSM and LatD list and a White Scars list that are also now official army lists

I stand corrected! The lists I quoted were all in the printed books...

Still haven't plowed through the rulebook yet so im fairly infamilliar with the system but would you say this is a fair and balanced list to use?

The army list is still experimental and is generally regarded to be very slightly overpowered.

It's not as powerful as the Black Legion Chaos list however, and that one's fully official (Although it's under review to be slightly toned down at some point this year).

Note that the level of power disparity between the most powerful and least powerful army lists in Epic is nothing like the level of disparity found in 40k... it's just that Epic is such a fine tuned and balanced system that those army lists that do fall out of line stick out obviously (And will inevitably be fixed too).

AMTL list has few things that are over the top. Mainly the Melta Gun (Reaver with 2 Meltas and Vulcano is way cruel).

IIRC that was only Imperial Titans fighting it off! Personally Im more intruiged by having Titans from various races battling it off. Imperator Titan versus the Ork Mega Gargant!

Are there any models (official or not) for using Knights? Or guides for converting them? Or atleast what size they're supposed to be?

Used to be, they're essentially one man titan battlesuits....

My favourite right now is this method:

They use Necron Immortal parts... I think.
