I found a picture of an old advertisement for Warhammer 40,000. It shows "ROBOTS", which resemble Terminators or Space Marines somewhat.

Here's a copy of the image:

Which army are these robots from? Can they still be fielded in modern 40K?

Could they be Imperial Robots? –  Pow-Ian Oct 7 '13 at 20:50
    
Or maybe Legio Cybernetica? –  Pow-Ian Oct 7 '13 at 20:51

These are from the bygone days of Rouge Trader, when you could field Imperial Robots. GW's fluff and art direction where less mature at this point and you got lots of random stuff like this.

Fluff wise the technology has been lost and/or declared heresy by the Imperium for millennium. But Forge World brought them back.

Yep, Imperial Robots. You can see examples matching the provided picture in the gallery here: warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Imperial_Robots#Gallery –  ire_and_curses Oct 8 '13 at 15:52
    
Are there any rules available for the Forge World model? –  ire_and_curses Oct 8 '13 at 15:53
    
@ire_and_curses It would be in one of these. Not sure which one –  CaulynDarr Oct 10 '13 at 16:04
