I think that if they went with a true dark age of technology design it'd probably be something more like a cloud of nanites. I quite like this design as it passes for Imperial tech but there is something much more sinister inside.

 

I always thought of Men of Iron technology similar to Necron technology just without metal skeletons and obviously egyptian influences ... probably just because we know basically nothing about them and Necrons are the most technological advanced faction we have models for in 40k tho lol

Is it just me, or does the man of iron not look as advanced as you were expecting? To me it sort of looks like something from a 19th century sci-fi novel, rather than from the DoT. I thought we might get something that felt like it was from an Iain Banks Culture novel.


Although it’s not unknown for Culture drones (particularly the teched-to-the-teeth military ones) to ‘wear’ much clunkier shells to disguise their capabilities a little when working around non-Culture types.

Yeah I can see where you are coming from there for sure. The only actual canon time I have seen them personalty is in the comic strip Pax Imperialis where it was shown as a single consciousness that could occupy machines. Truth is though it could be that it took many forms, so it could be a case of actual robots on one planet or clouds of nanites on another or a computer virus on yet another. It might just be humanity lost control of technology because it advanced so far and in historical terms, looking back from what is now a very superstitious time, it is referred to in human terminology as a machine rebellion. 

 

When I imagine the dark age of technology I personally look at today's tech and then think ok so say ten thousand years from now what are we going to be looking at in terms of development? I personally believe that the tech might be so advanced we may not be able to comprehend what we are seeing through our present day eyes. It's like where they say that technology at some point would appear like magic to someone who was far more primitive.

I like the idea that one of the most dangerous threats ever to face humanity look just like goofy 50’s sci-fi robots!

Well, Mechanicus automata generally have that vibe...and UR-025 is probably going for that look. I do think he looks a bit sleeker though

Your opinion is important, and someone posting here probably does care what you think. You should go tell them. Remember that it really hurts to come up with an idea you care about and have no one else care. Go care about something and tell them what you think. Now. Think of what it would have meant to you when you were young.

Well good thing for the T'au Empire that such a thing doesn't exist then. ;)


Disclaimer:

If my posts appear rude to you, I apologize. It's not meant to be rude in any way, it's just the way folks are in my country. It's really more about being direct than being rude. I know how it's perceived in the english speaking community and I already try to tone it down but I barely notice when it's too much since it's normal for me.


So yeah, I'm really not rude it's basically just cultural differences that act against me here. Again, I apologize.
