Did they say anything about carapace weapons?

The carapace has a sort of void shield generator on top - there is no slot for a carapace weapon.

I want them so bad I can taste them. Almost enough to make me dust off my 30k army. Almost.

Background question: Do these and the Atrapos have a pilot? or are they controlled by some kind of machine spirit? I don't see any pilot entrance point.

The shell collapses backwards in steps like a shutter on the Atrapos from what I can tell. Same with the Stryx and Magaera. They describe the Attapos' machine spirit and influence on pilot in the big books for 30k iirc. All knights have a human element, there's a story of a wounded knight being entombed Dread style into a Magaera and some stories alluding them to also be able to become osuedo servitor knights.

Is it a single kit with lots of options or multiple kits?

That's interesting. I'd got the impression from somewhere that they were just hardwired in on the Mechanicus knights. I'd prefer for the hatch to just be a different design as you say.

I appreciate the comment that theres no 40k rules, however is this an official comment or a personal thought.  The weapons on these seem smaller versions of weapons on existing larger knights from FW, which all have 40k rules, therefore in the absence of an official statement I would expect them to have 40k rules.  

 

I doubt FW would miss out the marketing value of having these kits available to 40k players with the wallets to accommodate them.  Im certainly up for adding several of them to my 40K Mechanicus Knight contingent.

I would be surprised if they did not get 40K rules at some point, it probably more that no one has started on them yet.
The official line will be no rules until either they are done and about to be released or the internet kicks up enough noise we need to be told they are coming to keep us quiet.

I wouldnt be surprised if they dont get 40k rules. The one knight has volkite weapons which is a 30k era only thing. There are other 30k stuff that doesnt have rules as well

There are multiple units in 40k with volkite, including a forgeworld knight. So while I don't expect anything anytime soon, I imagine 40k rules will appear eventually :)

Actually, I'd expect 40K rules sooner than later. Especially with Chaos Knights getting their own codex soon.

You will see a port to 40k like the custodes stuff got the beta rules. Only a matter of time. GW knows AdMech and knights players are chomping at the bit waiting for this stuff to get to 40K and empty their wallets. GW never leaves a cent on the table they have a chance of collecting.

*cough* Cyraxus release in May 2016 2017 2018 *cough*

 

I agree that they will probably at some point bring some rules, but the current delay is so ridiculous, I won't buy anything on the off chance that they might manage to write rules this year. Vote with your wallets - no sales without rules. There's enough other stuff to finish in the meantime, I'm sure...

There are volkite ruled in 40k for:

Ad mech character
Knight from fw in chapter approved.

There's sufficient precedent. Just need them releasing.

Also, the Solare Auxilia little tankette has volkite options for 40k. Volkite is hardly 30k exclusive anymore.

Yet the Glaive is the one superheavy astartes tank that didn't get ported over to 40k. They are not entirely consistent in that regard, but I guess as long as they don't find the time to do the rules, there is no way to know for sure...
