Default New Forge World Knight

As if my bank account couldn't take anymore from these people. Here comes Forge World to do even more harm.

Quote:
This juggernaut of iron and firepower is the Acastus Knight Porphyrion, and he’ll be striding his way across the war zones of the far future very soon.

While we’ve take this handsome fellow to shows in the past, we realised we’d never given him a proper show on the Forge World bulletin, so it’s high time that was put right.

As you can see, he is considerably stockier and bulkier than the existing Knight classes. This guy will not be running at enemy formations attempting to grind them to bloody slurry with a giant chainsword.

Instead, the Acastus Knight is equipped with firepower to rival a small titan. With its two twin-linked Magna-lascannons, the Acastus stands ready to obliterate any armoured foe, while an Ironstorm battery of missiles allow it to simultaneously blast infantry to oblivion.

And there are a couple of autocannons on there too… just to be sure.



This thing is a lovely present from Santa Omnissiah.

I was not going to touch myself before going to bed, but this image has changed my mind! Beautiful, kidneys worth of resin there!

It is a beast. I wonder how tall it is compared to its brothers?

Looks quite a bit taller and beefier than a regular knight!

With those chunky legs I'm thinking of this as the "Imperator" Knight titan. It just needs a little castle on its back or maybe a hut minus fowl's legs.
