Looks like they're branching into the Drednought/Dread Knight area now :geek:

Wow!

Smart little buggers, aren't they?

I think the left hand gun is pretty plain lookin, but I guess that could be easily converted or it needs a hand with a HUGE sword to hit people with. :lol:

Honestly, I really, really don't like it. It's a terrible design and mechanically poorly detailed. It kind of looks like a kid's action figure. Can't argue with their choice of target market though ;)
Oh yeah I can make that....

I like it better than the GW Knight Titan, though the feet, shoulders and gun need work.

I don't understand all these walkers that have the pilot's head sticking out though, one las pistol shot and he's without a pilot.

Zac, mate i never said i liked lol :lol: just had to put it out there. Plus it just goes to show there's a target audience for this kind of mini. Like it or not its a progression for Scibor into the larger mecha even if it falls short. Its at least a step in the right direction for the drednought, dreadknight market.

The Grey Knight one? Yeah that's not saying much! :P

It can look cool (and macho) on a battlesuit, but on a mecha this size it just looks stupid.

Don't worry mate I wasn't making any accusations towards your model taste :P
I do always appreciate you sharing!

I really have to agree with Zac on this one. I'm not a fan at all. It could have been cool, but it looks half-finished. I think quite a few of the regular posters on this forum could have done it better. :mrgreen:

I'm the same, just lacks something I can't grasp words for, but the pilot sticking out the top just looks silly!

God dammit they piped Anvil Industry to the post!!

My own mech walker is in the planning/3D design stage at the moment, for anticipated release in about 3 months.

http://i1215.photobucket.com/albums/cc5 ... review.jpg

Im not a massive fan of the paladin, its an nice model but its in the scibor "style" and I dont like the style.. I like my mechs more gothic, more mechanical and "thicker" if that makes sense, for example I

Overall though its a nice model if thats the style you like and the price is pretty competative compared to some of his 28mm minis..

AH

Lol, indeed. Shouldn't be hard for you to beat that design.
It suffers from having no mid details, like all Scibor stuff. I dislike the way those press-moulded details are just chucked on.
Plus the mechanism seems to have been given very little thought.

Aha that's exactly what I was trying to work out. It's got all the big details, and plenty of little pressmoulded bits, but it's missing any medium sized detailing, which ultimately is slightly more important than the fine details (and far more important than the icons and stuff sculpted on).

Exactly. Mid level detail is really important on large miniatures, especially mechs.

It may not be Dr. Evil's baby carrier like the deathknight.... but I don't like it. Feels really clunky and comical to me and the details look plastered on.

IMO not one of his better pieces.
