What now for Imperial Knights?

Good morning,

 

So, the Imperial Knights are finally here; I like them.

I would have preferred a few more weapon or loadout options but this is a good place to start. I like that they are getting there own Codex and that they can be fielded as a primary detachment, but of course we won’t really understand the mechanics of that until we lay hands on the book.

They are super-heavy walkers, with a D-weapon chainsword and a thermal cannon or  (what I think is) a strange looking battle cannon.

So what’s next?

Luckily, the helpful folks at Forge World have been dropping hints like Hansel and Gretel breadcrumbs all over their Facebook page.

We can expect:

  • Several new weapon options – to be revealed/discussed at the Forge World open day.
  • A Chaos Knight variant
  • Horus Heresy Rules – Knights will be included in HH Book 3: Extermination.
  • Other Knight Variants: Lancers, Castellans etc  – This hasn’t been confirmed but seems a logical step

 

This may be the thing that tips me over the edge into starting a Heresy era Mechanicum army. I mean… what’s not to like about this? 🙂

 

Cheers,

Neil

    Very nice information, it MAY even make me do a 30/40k mechanicum army if it is viable!
