Imperium mech, espescially dreadnought and knight warden, are good for carrying moar dakka

Tau mech is for lazorfest and sneaky breaky type

Chaos mech are like the Imperium one, except... it's chaotic (yes, pun intended)

Orks mech mostly intended for close quarter combat

I'll say just this; Tau walkers bigger than the Broadside should have been made with MA characteristics instead of simply being bigger bipeds.
>>
>>16166760
what'a a MA ?
>>
>>16166764
Mobile Armor?

More extremely large Hammerhead than normal Tau walker.
Walking is either multi-legged and minimal, or nonexistent apart from landing gear, primarily moves around with a shitload of antigravity/thrusters combined.

I dunno. The XV104, KV128, and KV139 look nice and all, but at those sizes it's starting to not resemble Tau aesthetics anymore. Given that the Manta is seen as a Tau answer to the typical Titan, the Tau seemed likelier to slap a railgun battery and a boatload of turrets on a floating tank chassis to make an intermediate-sized platform instead of simply making bigger walkers.

Why are Gargants so ugly? The killer kans and smaller Orkz mecha look okay.

makes me thing, how would a AC look if decorated by the imperium of man, probably a V era one since those are the closer to a dreadnought.

Because Ork design philosophy is to make their machines look cobbled together out of anything the meks could find. So the larger the gargant, the more likely it's going to look like a mobile scrapheap. Pic is what the smallest gargants look like.

Has someone kitbashed a Mazinger Z out of an Imperial Knight yet? This feel like something that should have been done.
>>
>>16168578
its a wee bit complicated, mazinger´s crown needs some space for the pilder and such, knights have the cockpit in the back hunch with a hatch on top, and the head as you can see is in some sort of telescoping cowl, then theres the whole chest fins and rocket punches that have little place to go, a better fit is some battletech desings like atlas, even MadCats rather than a nagai super

I love that the cogboys don't ever pretend to build Titans just cause they're some super-optimal weapons of war. While they are awesome at killing things, they make them for religious reasons first and foremost.

I think that titan's lower legs/feet are fucking terrific looking.

It's a neat way for it to articulate.

Also the OG box on stubby legs dreadnought is fucking fantastic, in spite of the fact that it would never be able to walk IRL unless it had some rather ridiculous level of gyrostabilization.

Frankly the tau's tanks and drones were always cooler than their suits.

Is there a canon interpretation for what the Mechanicus believes the Omnissiah looks like?

I'm guessing they believe it to be bipedal?

No because we aren't sure what it is. It could be the emperor, but it could also be the Void Dragon

The problem with "smelly dumb traitor scum" is that once the traitor worship is accepted by the 4 gods, the chainsword probably sprouts a tentacle that can shear normal Knights in half in a single vertical blow, the rusted joints spit acid and dust that corrupt the ground when it settles, the leakages are flesh-melting, worship-denying poisons that turn aerosol in normal temperatures, and the "exhausted ammunition" becomes a front for an anti-vehicle daemon energy bolt launcher.

Why does the Imperium still count dates from the birth of Jesus Christ?
>>
>>16175795
Because the Emperor is oddly nostalgic for things he claims to hate or because he co-opts it trying to be """ironic."""
>>
>>16175795
>>16175810

The emperor has a soft spot for archaic terminology?

I could be wrong, but wasn't it said somewhere that the Emperor was many famous/amazing people throughout human history?

Not saying the Emperor is Jesus Christ but I've never seen them in the same room together I'll ya h'what.

I don't like this concept for the Castigator. The Castigator was supposed to make the Imperial titans look like derpy wannabes. This thing was built by people who had science inconceivable to the Imperium and the Mechanicum, and was actually a super futuristic giant robot that was more like an anthropomorphic Bolo than a giant gothic shitpile of an ambulatory cathedral. It had an intelligent AI and self repair systems, and would have made the Emperor look unambitious and mild mannered had the Grey Knights not figured out how to blow it up.

>>16176069
Arnt knights and baneblades also supposed to be from the DoAT? I think those guys still had a pretty edgy aesthetic.

The Emprah is pretty heavily implied to be Jesus Christ. In Graham McNeill's short story "The Last Church" (one of my favorite 40k stories), the Emperor meets up with a priest of the last church on Earth (hence the title) and tries to get the priest to give up religion and take up Imperial secularism. In the process of trying to convince him, Emps mentioned being the one who inspired the Christian religion originally.
>>
>>16178759
My only issue is he gets butthurt too easily, and that he ignores things in the lore that he doesn't want to talk about (like that Space Marines still have penises)
>>
>>16178783
Agreed.
>>
>>16178783
yeah, but at least he has some character. other lore channels are too bloody dry
