Assault Knight

I am currently in the middle of a building frenzy. Al the ideas that I have thought about regarding my Mechanicum army are trying to get out at the same time. This we I had to build the Heavy Assault Knight. I have had this idea of taking the Defiler Knight and clothe it in heavy armor and equip it with the CCW arms from the Defiler kit. Since I bought two sets of Imperial strongholds, I have a lot of aegis defense lines to work with. I have seen some Knights on line that have used Aegis parts for the shoulders, but I think they look a bit unbalanced as the shoulders tend to look to large. My idea was to use more shield and use them both for arm and leg plates as well as for the shoulders. As this will make the Knight more heavy I have decided to use a more sturdy build for the legs using the defiler CCW instead of the slimmer back legs that I used before. I have made a basic assembly partially glued and partially held together by blue tack. I am quite happy with the result. It is distinct from the lighter Knight that I built before but there are still enough of a resemblance to tie them together. I will keep on building the different models for this project before starting with green stuff and later on, painting. In this way I can change the design and have the changes go through to all the models.

  1. Holy shit Agis, that looks incredibly awesome!!!!!

    I want one!

    He just needs more bulky feet if it's possible. Maybe fill the claw's centre with plasticard then make two outside front toes on each side?

  2. Glad you liked it, it turned out quite well. I will look into the feet issue. I try to work as much as possible with whats in the kits so I will have to see if I can find something in there to bulk them out. One problem is that since the legs are leaning inwards I had to put the claws at different angles to touch the ground, so joining them with plasticard might be tricky. There is always the sentinel feet, I might be able to do something with them.
