Forge World shows off some Mechanicum inspired head-swaps for all types of Imperial Knights!

The team in the Forge World Studio are always working on new ways to upgrade and personalise your models. They’ve produced plenty of Knights, and now they’re working on Mechanicum heads for knights of all types. Take a look…

We’ve seen a few of these before from various other events but they were just digital mock-up prototypes or just bare resin.

These are the first really clean pictures we’ve seen of the heads all painted up. From what we can tell these heads are going to work with all the current Knight kits, both the Plastic kits from GW and the Resin Knights from Forge World. If you’re running your Knights with Mechanicum Allies or if your Mechanicum Army is being supplemented with Knights, this is a great way to tie them all together visually. Heck, even if you’re not looking to run your Knights with Mechanicum Allies it’s still a great way to differentiate your Knights. Who wants every Knight to look the say anyways?!


What’s your take on these new Forge World Mechanicum Knight Heads? I, personally, welcome our new robot overlords.

    These look like they would go great with Mechanicum, but would feel really out of place next to SM or 40k AdMech.

  • Shiwan8

    Old news. Nice, but old news.

  • Emprah

    The Half dome one looks more 30k Mech, the one with the central eye with shutters is definately 40k Admech feel.

    The one with only 2 lenses looks it could be both.

      So Baron Cave Johanson lord of House Aperture shall now ride his knight Incendiary Lemonius into the houses of his enemies?

    • ChubToad

      Are we even sure that goes on the face and not “somewhere” else? i mean that lools too much like an …. Nevermind..

  • Firemind

    Shame gw doesnt produce a plastic “Upgrade” pack for admech :/

  • Anti-Gravity

    The centralized spiral iris reminds me of a Cryptek’s head. These are all gorgeous though, would love to have them all for my Knights. Would also look great for miscellaneous terrain – giant Knight heads trashed all around the battlefield.

    • Nogle

      The heads would also look great on the base of my Kytan 😉

      • Anti-Gravity

        My FW Lord of Change would also look great with one beneath its enormous bird claw.

    • Mr.Gold

      Obviously a design based off of a slumbering relic beneath Mars…

  • georgelabour

    If i ever get a second atrapos or pick up a lancer I’ll have to get one of these heads.

    But which one!?!
