What can I say?

Unfortunately, it looks like there’s a purchase of a new set of Questoris knights in your future

I wonder if this means we might see those heavy-weapon super tanks that the Mechanicus use? Granted that's sort of edging toward Epic more than TL, but they are huge titanic tanks and who knows they might get a size upgrade. We know in the lore that the Imperium has some vast tanks and ground vehicles which might not be called titans, but are titanic in size

Ordinatus? I’d say they’re definitely a candidate as they have Titan grade weaponry and are shielded. They could easily be added via a data card in a similar manner to knights

Ordinatus - Minor and Major? Be cool but I am not sure they will do any vehicles.

New Mechanicum Knights look resin instead of plastic but I would love to be wrong. I have managed to avoid AT resin so far but I could make an exception this time.

That place is the harsh dark future far left with only war left.

They look like they don't share any components with the Questoris plastic kit so I'll be surprised if they're resin. Would make more sense as a new sprue.

I agree that it would make more sense as a new sprue. I can't see any shared parts either. However, some of the parts look too three-dimensional to be produced in a mold that doesn't allow undercuts. This includes curved armour plates with cog trim, head of both knights and gun barrel on Malinax Knight.

Like I said, I would be happy to be wrong but they look like resin models.

If you look closely the feet are the same, the back of the legs, the pistons at the groin level, the plating of the torso, the ornated name plate (just below the head), and the exhausts are also the same. To me, that is definitely the same chassis as the one from the existing questoris knights. Take a questoris model from your collection and compare it to the pics.

The curved armour plates will likely consist of several parts, like for the current Acastus knights.

In my humble opinion, this is a plastic kit.

I'll even add that I envision a Mechanicum knight household battleforce with 3x knight Styrix, 3x knight Magaera, 4x Cerastus knight Atropos, and 2x Acastus knight Porphyrion being the Christmas battleforce for Adeptus Titanicus.

That is just an educated guess based on my feeling regarding popularity of such models, the info black out regarding new models so far (except for various plates in the last two books), and the fact that the chassis is already existing for all 3 types which means less development time required.

I hope you're right, but it looks to me like it may be a hybrid plastic resin kit, really hoping you're right and it's all plastic.

Do you play 30k? It'd be a lot cooler if you did.

Nice, I like this a lot. Luckily I have just finished painting up my Questoris Knights so my Adeptus Titanicus backlog is not too big. Hope we see a release before Christmas but given the events of this year...who knows?

No I don't think so, Styrix and Magaera aren't yet available to buy and as far as we know Atropos don't even exist, and this is 2-4 weeks before any xmas bundles are announced. This theoretical bundle would also be mostly very new models, which I personally find less likely than something a bit older. Plus knights were last year. I think something with a Warbringer is more likely.

Xmas battleforces tend to be a way of clearing existing stock, not new models.

My money says that if there is an AT battleforce kit this year it'll have the Warbringer, as that has been out for some time. The Xmas 2021 box would totally focus on new Knights if we see a bunch in the next few months.

Yeah that'd make sense given the new maniple has all the titans in it for the first time so a good contender for a boxed set, warlord, warbringer, reaver, two warhounds.

Sometimes I think the Xmas Battleforces are less about clearing stock than people think. I'm sure its part of it, but at the same time I'm sure most are custom cast up because if it was clearing stock then that's a lot of hours to spend unpacking already packed and sealed stock to then pack up again in to a new box and to then discount.

Plus as a result of Corona I'd wager GW isn't holding much stock at all right now that is really "excess".

If they're on a standard plastic sprue that'll be plenty of leftover space.

I'll take any other Knights in plastic over this.

They’re not about releasing new products though, which is the original point.

I'd be very surprised if these aren't plastic, given all Knight kits have been plastic so far.

This very good news indeed. Maegera & Styrix are 2 of my favourite chassis variants and anytime we get more Mechanicum specific knights is just a bonus.

I hope that their weapons live up to the hype(in game). DAOT tech is always good.

Unfortunately I can see it being a hybrid resin/plastic kit. hoped it would be 100% plastic but I'm realistic.

Actually, it looks like they share rather a lot with the current Questoris kit.

Legs and chassis look the same. The difference is the carapace, head, and weapons. Could easily be done with an upgrade sprue.

That said, they could also do it in resin if so inclined, but given past history, I'm betting on the upgrade sprue.

They made a whole new kit for Knight Acheron and Castigator even though the Lancer kits already have Acheron and Castigator heads and basically the skeleton so it's not something unheard of for Mechanicum to be a whole new kit. Even though it'll be a huge waste of cash to make the same exact parts in mold instead of making upgrade sprue and using leftover space for other thing like extra head or extra weapons.

Also the Acheron and Castigator kits don't have the tiny shield, because they ran out of space on the sprue.
