  1. Wasn't all that keen on him when I saw this first time round (think the legs may have been too skinny for starters) but he looks pretty epic now, he'll be joining my household for sure :)

  2. Is there any in-universe explanation for the amount of rear armour it has?

    1. Getting shot in the engine sucks? I see this and think walking WWII tank destroyer. Not very mobile so the rear armour ensures and lancer has a more difficult time taking this bad boy down

    2. Yeah, it's odd given that its weapons look like long-ranged ones. Maybe they're counterweights.

    1. Just short of Warhound big. Looks awesome though. It is a Heavy Knight (last class before Titan) so don't expect them any bigger.

  7. Is it really twice size of a standard chassis Knight?

  8. He grown as well. About the size of a tau supremacy suit. Only a bit smaller than a warhound.

  9. So will this be getting an interior before release?

    1. Mmm. Not sure. May get one similar to the Questoris Knight Internal upgrade set. Due to the price it would be, I'm not sure if they would do an internal. It will be £200-£250 at this size.

    2. Yes it will get an interior, the pic above was taken is when Darren opened to explain how will drop in.

    3. Will it come with the kit? Or optional extra?

    4. Excellent news, thought as much with that picture.

    1. Hi Wayne. Nope. Probably at the FW Openday in July, considering all of the other bits they have to come out over the next few months.
