The Knight-Atrapos Strides Into Battle From Forge World

October 16, 2015 by brennon

Forge World have a fantastic new Cerastus Knight available over on their website for the Mechanicum. The massive Knight-Atrapos is armed to the teeth and looks like it has stepped out of a 70′s or 80′s movie when it comes to design…

MECHANICUM CERASTUS KNIGHT-ATRAPOS #1

“One of the rarest and most potent Knights, the Knight-Atrapos is a unique variant type of the Cerastus pattern. Bearing particularly rare and potent weaponry of annihilation, the Cerastus Knight-Atrapos was created solely to destroy heretek engines and xenos war machines whose very nature and existence were considered a blasphemy to the Omnissiah.”

“The Cerastus Knight-Atrapos carries arcane and devastating weapons into battle; the focussed and deadly Atrapos lascutter, that sees duty as both a ranged and close combat weapon, and the violently destructive, but potentially unstable, graviton singularity cannon.

With the speed and shielding of the Cerastus chassis, and the Knight-Atrapos’ Marco-extinction Targeting Protocols, the Cerastus Knight-Atrapos is an uncommonly destructive weapon of war.”

Now that is a deadly looking Knight. I wasn’t overly convinced about it when it first popped up in my email inbox but when I took a proper look at it I think it’s fantastic. All of it looks like it works and I think they’ve gone into some amazing detail when it comes to the workings beneath the armour panels.

As well as the Knight you also get this Knight Scion who pilots the massive walkers in Warhammer 40,000. He comes free with this Knight if you order it now…

He doesn’t really look like he fits into the aesthetic of Warhammer 40,000 which is quite odd. Something about him reminds me of a pilot from an old TV series or a racing driver from the future.

Some more amazing work from Forge World or are you over these massive walkers now?
