I've always wanted to do an Imperial Knight, I was a big fan of Space Marine so when Titan Legions came out with loads of walking robots it was truly awesome. As such I just had to do a 40k version.
About a year ago I picked up a bionicle kit, erm.. Tao Hordika Matau for those to whom it means something (not me, I must confess). I actually bought it with a view to using the parts to do a matrix apu following the instructions from WIP. But the long it sat on my window ledge in various poses, the more inspired I got to make a mech.
So here we go, and clearly the hardest part is always going to be stopping it looking like a bionicle with loads of plasticard attached. Wish me luck!
Below are all the research photos I found before I started. Please note NONE OF THESE ARE MINE! But they were all so damned awesome and inspiring I thought I'd share them with you. If one of these is yours (kudos) and you'd like it removing from here just let me know.
