They are nice but the dreadknight is ridicolous. If I was an enemy sniper I’d just shoot at the head of that idiot and stop that uber walking machine of doom. Not to say that the poor guy seems to be suspended.
Hmm, somebody’s watched Avatar a few too many times. Not that I dislike them, of course. What’s not to like about big stompy walker suits?
I’m liking the Grey Knights themselves too. Well, bits of them. The Terminator heads would look great on Iron Warrior Terminators. And it wouldn’t take much to turn the halberds into huge hammers either.
Edit: As well as being a bit Avatary, the Dreadknight looks rather like the vague Asteroth concept I have in the back of my mind.
I didn’t really get it, actually, but now I read the fluff that explains why it exists (because sometimes Daemons are kinda big…) I like it a lot more. 40K normally ignores issues of scale like that (and Leman Russ can therefore somehow kill a Titan) so I think it’s quite a good justification. Apparently being a knight with a sword is the only way to kill these things, but they’re big, so you gotta get a really big knight with a sword to keep up.
Thommy H: Very true. Especially since mech suits have been about for so long. People are mentioning things like Avatar and Lego - what about the Alien film (I think it’s the second one, but not sure) or The Matrix 3 etc? It’s a concept used, rather than an idea stolen
To everyone (this includes other people, not just anyone mentioning it in the thread) mentioning the “bendy sword”, it took me reading that it’s two swords and looking at the picture again to figure out how people saw it as a “bendy sword”, lol. I could see it was two swords the whole time. However, the “bent sword” was an actual weapon. It may be a Wiki page, but it’s just the easiest place to show information on the Sica.
Hm! The new plastic power armour marines are really nice; I may have to add one or two of these squads to my army. Then again, the plastic termies are a letdown, I’ll just stick to my as-of-yet unpainted metal GK terminators. The new lord is a nifty model, a worthy hero.
IMHO, it seems like most of the new GW models look like total shite. Uninspired ideas, bad sculpting and even worse paint jobs to sell them. Not impressed with these things and the Knight thing, especially not. Glad I’m not planning on playing them.

Well honnestly the dread sucks, I admit I like the new terminators I like the idea of the dread but the execution is a epic fail. GRNDL I think you summed up what we were all thinking in a nutshell ''total shite''
