Robot miniatures

Hey!
After noticing the civvie thread, I decided to create my own, looking for miniatures of robots or androids (no cyborgs or servitors, please). I got inspired by the movie Chappie to get some androids for my Enforcers, but so far, I managed to find only a couple of sculpts. Bad, ancient, ugly sculpts.
No need to mention the Anvil Industry digital forge automata regiment, and I have them as a backup if nothing else shows up.

Any recommendations?

The robot from Blackstone fortress, or the 40k mechanicus range seem like the obvious place for Imperial looking robots.
Could even try converting some adeptus titanicus knights perhaps.

Some of the Necron heads, the ones which only have one eye, look slighty more robotic despite still being skeletal terminators.

The UR-025 thingy? It could potentially work, but I was looking for something human-sized, that could wield a shotgun.
The closes thing Mechanicum (and Mechanicus) have to robots are the Thallax (technically they are cyborgs, but they don't show any biological parts), and the Castellans, and it is all way too big. Worry not, I checked those ranges.

The Thallax can work as the winged, ex-Van Saar bounty hunter. Can't remember his name or the sourcebook. Book of Peril I think.
Or as the Arachni-rig, with some tweaks.

Unless you try to smoosh a necron and an enforcer together somehow I can't think of anything human sized in GWs range.

Edit: maybe something Ike necron legs or even skitarii. Combined with enforcer torso and skitarii arms. Then try to fit a helmet on a necron head.
It might look like a robot in uniform?

Don't actually own any of these kits so not sure how well they might fit together.

Mantic's Deadzone stuff might be of use; most of their enforcers faction could pass for androids, while the Asterian faction is comprised largely of robots (though I'd want to bulk out their legs).

Looking in their dreadball range, they do a humanoid robot team and another multi-part set with enough humanoid bits in that it might be of interest.

Not terribly cost-effective if you're just wanting a single mini but I have found bags of mixed seconds going cheap on eBay in the past.

Have you checked out Bombshell or Reaper? Infinity might be good too as their armor style double as androids instead of people in armor.

Crooked Dice has some stuff. They're very pulpy and fun.

There are more than just these, these are just the first I ran across.
