Today I present to you lovely people a collection of my Walkers. I recently shared a showcase post of my fliers so I thought I would continue the series with models I own with the unit description ‘Walker’. Check out the close-ups after the jump.
Now, before someone feels the need to correct me. I know the Grey Knight Dreadknight is a monstrous creature and that’s why he doesn’t feature in the close-ups below. I had to include in the above picture though because I felt it was an interesting scale comparison. Now with that out of the way, onto the pictures.
The latest Walker to join my collection is a Super Heavy. An Imperial Knight Errant. With a large blast melta weapon and a strength D chainsword this model is incredible.
Anyone who knows me will know I have a lot of Ultramarines, however my Dreadnought collection is relatively modest at only four strong. I have an Ironclad, two standard Dreadnoughts with Melta Cannons and a Venerable Dreadnought armed with a Plasma Cannon.
As I mentioned the Dreadknight isn’t a Walker, but my Contemptor is! I explain the Contemptor being in the ranks of the Grey Knights quite simply. After the Horus Heresy the the Grey Knight Chapter was formed and they drew upon all the best equipment and war gear they needed. This included Contemptor Dreadnoughts.
This classic 2nd edition Ork Dreadnought (more recently known as a Deffdread) is a another recent addition to my collection. With it’s contemporary paint job I feel he will fit right in with my Orks from Stormclaw (when I get round to painting them).
My fledging Black Legion force features two walkers. A Helbrute and a Forgefiend.
Finally I have my Triarch Stalker. This is such an under rated kit. It’s huge and an absolute bargain at only £30 and comes with a few weapon options. The front claws are on pivot joints as well so there is a degree of articulation as well.
Which is your favourite? What should I add next?
