Especially when they’re inspired by Warhammer 40K.
Mark Stafford and Flickr’s CBLA_Member have both built new creations based on Warhammer 40K, and both are Red.
CBLA has built a pirate mecha (right) to scale for minifigs, which makes excellent use of a Jack Stone skull piece for marking on the shoulder.
Mark has built a space marine (below) from the blood angels chapter to scale with a big Knight’s Kingdom head.
Andrew Lee has finally done something that I’ve been hoping someone would do for years. He’s built a space ship inspired by Warhammer 40K’s chaos forces. The Skalathrax features uses repetition of form to achieve a complex surface, especially along the top, which is almost spinal. Although I’d like to see some even crazier stuff – like more spikes – this creation captures the feel of chaos excellently. My favorite thing about this ship, is how Andrew built it modularly, so that it could be easily transported. I hope he makes some more components as well, a fleet of ships with interchangeable sections and weapons would be really cool.
Kidthor (MOCPages) incorporates LEGO Castle elements into this big, chunky mech from the Warhammer 40K universe:
LUGPol member Kris Kelvin has built a rather cool, custom version of Archaon, Lord of the End Times. For you pathetic non-gamers, that’s a character from Warhammer Fantasy Battle (I had to go look it up myself).
Inspired by Alex Kahler’s micro creation featuring a mini Dreadnought from Warhammer 40K, Jarek presents a micro dio featuring a few of his designs, including a nifty little tank, complete with an accompanying diorama.
Alex Kahler minimized the Hellfire Dreadnought from Warhammer 40k into a micro vignette at the same time keeping all the defining details, making the model instantly recognizable to fans of the game.
Andrew Lee has been tinkering with this mecha for a while now, and this latest variant is reminiscent of Warhammer 40,000. The standard is extremely cool.
Third link post. I hope everyon’s getting the hang of this. I’ve run across a bunch of these in Richard McCarthy’s LEGO SigFig Flickr group.

Hurray! Another game-inspired mecha! Freshly posted by Brickshelfer Jerac, here’s a “Hellfire Dreadnought” from the real-time strategy game Warhammer: 40,000:
