If I changed the cockpit joining at all, I'd probably just remove it carefully and trim away the remaining part of the battle cannon to make the joining part completely flush flat. However personally I kind of like the little bit of neck to it.

I'd love to make a squad of these, but we play Apoc so rarely I don't think its worth investing in to make more then one. Making this one mainly cause... well... wanted to see if I could and wanted something big and unique in my army. Cause honestly with the cost it would involve to make a new one I could just buy a Baneblade and convert it to a Felblade. Though having Knight Paladins in a army called the Aesir Knights is rather fitting I think.

Now when my girlfriend and I get a bigger place, if I really do set up a gaming room and have my own area to host 40k and Apoc games... thats another story.

Very cool looking model, look forward to seeing it done.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Ok, an update post. The Land Raider Power Plant ended up being to big, which is a blessing in its own way. But I ended up using a Land Raider Power Plant all the same Just not the new one. Plus a few additions to it.

The cockpit still isn't glued together, since the interior isn't painted yet.

Cockpit interior painted so I could truly finish assembly. Made sure to get some unpainted Conversion pics taken for the next Conversion contest.

I've heard of knights a little bit before, are they just small titans? Or are they actually piloted by "knights" of the imperium?

They are mini titans. Something planetary governors and such are much more likely to be able to call in to assist them rather then Warhounds, Reavers, Warlords, etc

From the front this looks great and I think my orks need to build one of these. From the side though the cockpit seems out of place. I almost want to move the cockpit up top like a head on the shoulders.

Man, I can't wait to see that thing in person. Sometime, we're going to have to arrange an Apocalypse game, once I've got my Reaver built, and just squash some folks under the heavy foot of the Collegio Titanica.

Knights are similar to titans, but they're much smaller. They're used by the Adeptus Mechanicus to guard the agri-worlds which supply food to the Forge Worlds. It's easier to patrol a wide area with something like that than a tank, if you think about it. When the Adeptus Mechanicus goes to war, it may call upon a number of Knights from nearby agri-worlds if need be; although generally, the only times they're needed is when the Skitarii require Titan support, but the terrain is inhibitive to deploying a cohort of Titans. Ultimately, a Warhound isn't that much bigger than a Knight, but sometimes, it's enough of a difference that the Warhound would sink into the mire where a lighter vehicle wouldn't, or can't navigate dense urban sprawl where a Knight could.

I'll make sure to bring it with next time I can get there. This Friday is definitely no go, but gonna see if the girlfriend will be cool with me using her car next Friday.

And it would be worth the reaction to see the faces of the others when we deploy and put down 2 true Titans, a Knight and your baneblade.

I'm thinking about selling my Chaos army... considering I barely ever play it (and could use the money for car repairs) and using the RT Land Raider I had set aside for it and convert it into a Helios.

Just me but it apears the cockpit is rather vulnerable. and outhere.
may add a couple hydrolic pistons contecting the cockpit, on on each side sort of thing to make the head move back and forth(though it would not actually move.)
maybe some extra armour there.
