Cult Mechanicus will feature a new robot type unit that is part Forge World Castellex, part Space Marine Centurion.

Their bodies are plated armour sealed in the front much like the centurions in appearance, but with no chest mounted weapons. They are on 50mm bases and are quite larger than the Centurion models. Their heads are a giant domed EVA helmet which looks quite fantastic. There are no organic components visible the models, they are automanta.

There are several armaments they come with; a larger calibre cannon in their right hand to flamer type weapon in their left. Articulated hands with finger appendages are also an option, as well as a top shoulder mounted versions of these same type weapons.

    2. The face plate is very reminiscent of the old Warlord titan, I like it. Can't wait to see it's rules.

    3. Ok cool but where's the Volcano Cannon?

      Delete
    4. Volcanoe Cannons require too much power to mount on Knights. Those are for Warlords. Not even a Reaver titan can handle a Volcanoe Cannon (at least according to Epic Space Marine).

    5. ^ Probably isn't one.

      That was from 'birds int' trees'

    6. @Starchild. Forgeworld just released a Volcano cannon for the Reaver :P

      @DantesInfernus. Oh... Yeah probably not then. Damn!

    7. Reaver titans can arm mount them, but not carry them on their carapace mount. http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Volcano_cannon

    10. Damo, are you thinking of the Quake Cannon?

      Delete
    11. not sure how i feel about the gauntlet rules... doesnt seem to give much in return for being initiative 1 over the chainsword

      Delete
    12. @Mauler. Original rumour said one with Quake cannon and Lascannons with the other having a Volcano Cannon and multi barrelled Autocannons.

      Either way as long as we get plenty of options I don't care what we get... Still a strength D gun would be nice.

  3. Looking alright, like a miniature reaver with the missile pod, I like the fist and new faceplate, not sold on the rotary cannon from that pic.

    2. You at least still have a partner. I had to let mine go in anticipation of the Warlord Titan.... She was not understanding.

    3. Well I haven't told her about the titans I'm planning on getting but when they arrive I may be in the same boat as you Kevin reece haha

  6. Hmm. The new knight is extremely tempting. The new robots sound amazing. Hopefully i csn convert them into Castalax (even if i have to scratch build weapons), because i need a load for my alpha legion but cannot stand working with forgeworld resin
