New Imperial Knights Revealed!
The new Imperial Knight Kit from GW is finally up for pre-order and will be available on the 9th of May. The kit makes one of 3 new Imperial Knight variants – Imperial Knight Warden, Imperial Knight Gallant or the Imperial Knight Crusader. The kit contains the old Imperial Knight sprues with a new 74 component upgrade kit. The new kit was designed to fit on the existing Imperial Knight kit, making all the new bits fully interchangeable with the old kit.
The new kit brings with it, new face plates, icons and a huge amount of new weapon options. A new chest pintle Meltagun, reaper chainsword, thunderstrike gauntlet, a gatling cannon assembly (with heavy flamer), thermal cannon and the scary rapid-fire battle cannon. Plus three new carapace options – rocket pods, missile pods and an anti-air twin Icarus cannon. So much goodness 🙂 There are also a couple of bundles up on the webstore for those with a bundle of cash to spare – The Baronial Court, which is 3 of the new kits and the Exalted Court of House Terrynse. The Exalted court contains 5 Knights and a rule set exclusive to this deal. Take a look at the new variants below.
Imperial Knight Warden
Armed with an avenger gatling cannon and Reaper chainsword the Warden takes a balanced approach to the battlefield.
Imperial Knight Gallant
This Knight focuses on close-range weapons with the reaper chainsword and thunderstrike gauntlet.
The Imperial Knight Crusader
This one is all about shooting with the avenger gatling cannon, heavy stubber, and a thermal cannon.
