Maschinenkrieger stuff is awesome! I wonder how well it translates to 6mm, though. Also, in my mind, MaK has an aesthetic profile that is not even close to the suggested kniggit/mech-with-bolts seen here?

I was responding to Mr. Average's mentioning of SF3D

And I for my part was just pointing out that they didn't just have to be Not-Space Marines. Which I'm sure they won't be, I was just making the point. Yokoyama material is definitively NOT space Gothic in appearance or idiom.

I don't really know the reference in that art work, but if you want something similar to the egg shaped early model power armour Brigade models do something near identical at 6 and 15mm.

I am so glad to see you making larger war constructs. The giant OTC robot was welcome.

I like it. A lot.

I think the "cowl" could come slightly further over the head maybe? And the upper torso looks like it needs to be slightly less boxy - maybe broken up a little into plating ? Maybe some recessed mechanical gubbins detail in the "arm pits"?

There are a number of small-mecha in a medieval style out there - but this is shaping up to be my favourite. I think success will hinge on having enough variants and weapon options available to build a force.

Any chance of a back and/or side view ?

Not a big fan of the loin cloth, but looks good otherwise.

Thanks for the feedback. The cowl comes over quite a bit, but I can experiment - got to avoid undercuts for casting.. The top and back are completely untouched at the moment. I'm working on that next, and then I'll post some shots.

I'll post a shot without and see what you guys think.

That looks good. Can't wait to see it with shoulders and arms, will definitely look mean.
