Chomy is correct, the Knight-Titan design has been used (on the B&C at least) multipul times for a count-as Dreadknight.

Always ends up looking better than the dreadknight itself.

Well according to the rumours for 6th ed Space Marines they will get a new suit which is described as the child of the Contemptor and normal pattern dreadnought only bigger.

Does this mean the age of walking coffins is over? Also, the hell is GW giving every faction a big bloody mech?

Not necessarily, the more they give everyone one, they less special they are as a whole. I mean, come on, Tau were cool since they didn't fit in the same typical frame that the Imperium, Orks, and Eldar do, where they have a linebacking of heavy vehicles to support their frontline troops. Tau had Battlesuits to cover for their lack of a wide array of heavy vehicles.

Now suddenly everyone has a giant battlesuit of their own that fills the same role as something they should have had a long time ago? Come on.

<Just my 2 cents>

I agree that the battlesuits/walkkers do become a little less special as each race gets one, btu then they are very different. The Riptide has a jetpack, the Wraithknight is a Wraithlord on steroids, the Dread is still the classic Dread with an outfit for every occaision... walkers are a big part of the 40K universe, something completely alien to our current tech. If one race has a good idea then of course otehrs are going to make use of it - as long as they're kept thematic and race-appropriate (e.g. the Ork ones are still mainly about pounding things in melee while the Tau ones are still designed to take enemies from range), I don't see it as a bad thing.

Supposedly it's an Imperial Knight. You know, those mini one-man titans the Imperium has but never usually speaks of. Yeah, is this the legit, canon design?
