In reading the revised fluff for Serpion5, it made me think that when the Gnosis realized their pre-Imperial contact mechanical bodies weren't suitable really for war making, they'd come up with something that looks like the Shrike from Dan Simmons's Hyperion novels. Add one of these to the middle of a mele battle and you'd have enough blood to make Khorne get a woodie!
However, since I'm not an artist, don't have license to his work, and the Shrike would be a bitch to model, there you are.
It is all worth considering, and it need not necessarily be exclusive to one design. Older marks of machine vs newer ones as well as the various tasks the Gnosis would use them for means we can have two or three varying "looks" if we really want to.
