Ugh. Makes sense. They finally nerfed the Last big one so I guess they need a new unbeatable supermodel to sell.

What is this I am looking at? A personal project, a leak of new product, or something else altogether?

There was a sneaky GW stream, no fanfare. I managed to snap this pic just before it ended.

are these GW or FW?

Are the armigers resin upgrade kits to be applied to the armiger base like the various kits they produce for the standard knights?

It is the mechanicum Acastus Knight Asterius. It was previewed some months ago. First look painted.

I wonder if they model changed for the asterien. The drawing showed a carapace weapon. The painted model doesn't. I wonder if its closed. or deleted.

The new Knight is based on the Porphyrion which does include an open-or-closed missile launcher on the back of the carapace. It's not pintle-mounted like other heavy weapons on the carapace. So it's likely it's there, but was modeled as closed.

OTOH it's a completely different top section, so who knows if the launcher is still included.

There is no such thing as a hobby without politics. "Leave politics at the door" is itself a political statement, an endorsement of the status quo and an attempt to silence dissenting voices.

I've seen other photos and there does indeed seem to be a missile launcher, so I'm guessing an Acastus-chassis Knight of some sort.

Not sure about the Volkites, they're pretty poor performing.

Seeing this was named as acastus class first time it was shown good guess

I really wish they would change the rule to allow a super heavy detachment of 3 armigers to count for CP.

I would be tempted to field 5 or so as a collection. Really cool to get two more.

Problem with that is they would just be tag on SHD for literally any imperial army that wanted to get the bargain value of 3 quality vehicles that don't need hq's and provide CP. If we could make this a requirement for just an IK main detachment I think it would be a good change.

If we fail to anticipate the unforeseen or expect the unexpected in a universe of infinite possibilities, we may find ourselves at the mercy of anyone or anything that cannot be programmed, categorized or easily referenced.
