Oh really? Reading fail....

I think this is one of my favourite takes on the knight ive seen thus far:

Spoiler:


edit: Although it could be improved in many ways, primarily bulking up the leg mechanics.

If there was one thing id ask you to do, it would be to not make the legs weedy. SO many scratch titans suffer from stick-thin-leg-itis imo.

probably jumping in when someone else has said this, but Knights not only pre date the heresy, the date back to the age of technology before Terra was cut off by warp storms, as Admechs went out to the stars to share their knowledge. Then all contact was lost, and the former imperial worlds fell to fudal systems. at which points knights then fought against the emperor when the great crusade was undertook.

Eh, ive never cared for that fluff personally. In the fluff for my Forge World, Bhosfopor, the AdMech assimilated the feudal world, and inducted the Knight Households into the Legio Interfectorem (my titan legion).

Tbh, the fluff makes perfect sense. the admech left terra a few years before the warp storms, so when they taught the info to the worlds they went to, what else were they going to do in their millennia of isolation? Knit?

mxwllmdr wrote:I agree on the height thing, too, Vit, but fluff puts them around 8-9". which is just short of 2 or so inches short of a warhound. But 6-8 makes sense in the Dreadknight sort of way. Problem is wiht the knights the pilot is completely enclosed. Not strapped like a baby in a harness to the front. this would lead one to believe that the kngihts had to be a bit bigger than dreadknights because all that cockpitting around the pilot makes for bulk and there is no seemingly unneccesary bulk around the knights I have seen produced. Hence, an obviuosly larger frame and therefore stature. So that proportions are accurate....



I agree whole heartedly with this.

I want the titans that I'm designing to be heavy and imposing with non of that spindel stick legedness!
However to have to feel of being fast and highly reflexive.

I'm thinking that they should be around 8-9" so like you said max they'll feel proportioned corectly.

The beginning chapter of Mechanicum gives a great visual of how Knights move when they tell the story of the day the Emperor landed on Mars.

And this is the one that was picked up and thrown by the tornado:
he got thrown around by a tornado??? WTF??...man...good to be living then in germany i think... i wouldn´t want to face storms with that much energy to toss tanks around...

and the rocket launcher system... looks weird... very basic design... what does it shoot with? AA? or AT?


and...


i hope you don´t get into trouble for these pics...?
