I have seen some models of Freeblade ported along with some other knights or titans of several sources I think. I have not invested much time on this as I thought that it was complicated to make a huge mechas mod.
The smaller sized Armigers could help the escalation besides the knights previous to titans. I doubt if there's some proper pilot model, despite GW has made some minis of them, at least one I know. Something could be arranged I have some memories of proxies.
Well I think Fuggles has hit something with the activating menu here!
The mechas act as if they were movable buildings with activable weapons. Huge, slow but deal a lot of damage either from cc or from afar. However the thrill of the game is on gathering LPs and skirmishes here and there: there have to be some low tier squad(s) able to do the unpleasant job as well as protecting the machines until they are ready.
Now some observations/proposals:
if the mod is based on the adeptus titanicus (collegia titanica) it should contain some support from the Ad Mech in the form of secutarii or techpriests.
These are secutarii: the security corps ("titan guard") of Titan Legions
Additionally, if Knights houses are going to appear as well, they could have their own pilots (scions) instead of the pilots of the titans (the Princeps and Moderatii). Perhaps for titans adding crewmen could speed up the activations.
Armigers are low tier mini knights that could equal to a sentinel on steroids; if they are such a reality they could have either the same system but quicker power up times or being as a manned vehicle from the start.
How many types of knights are going to be featured? How many types of titans? For the first kind, the challenge is to avoid overpowering having them too quick; for the second kind the challenge is to grant a playable size and not going too OP compared to the other races.
I thought the knights were faster or more agile... how quick moves the DOW3 knight?
Have you looked at the Winterdyne's failed Titans mod? I think I had some list of the tiers and units and researches, if it serves for inspiration.
