What do the knights of the faerie courts pilot into battle?



This is an animated golden armor that is the standard mecha used by knights of the faerie courts. It is both magical and alive. Each stands roughly 13 yards tall, and sculpted to look like an elegant youth of marble wearing exceedingly complex and finely wrought plate armor of glinting gold.

The combat skills assume that it is being piloted by the faerie knight detailed on page 185 of the King Arthur Pendragon 5.1 edition book.
Battleforce Scale Battletech minis. 4 atlases, 1 battlemaster, and I forget the tiny one.

Next up is a terrible monster summoned from the Other Side. Neim Marbtar, a horribly large hippogriff. Its wings spread nearly 80 yards from tip to tip. 

This is based on some of the real world statistics of a Boeing 747. It is intended to replace a specific named and more dangerous hippogriff from Tales of Mystic Tournaments, not the standard hippogriff in Pendragon.
