GAMES & THINGS: March 9, 2014
Each week, Fanboy the Comic Imp spotlights a few of his favorite recent game releases. Here’s what FB’s playing this week:
CODEX: IMPERIAL KNIGHTS
In the glorious years of the Great Crusade the lost Knight worlds were reunited with the emerging Imperium after centuries of isolation. Piloted by a Noble and crafted utilizing forgotten technology, the Knight suits are the ultimate weapon of war.
Within the 64 pages of this hardback, full-colour book you will find:
- A comprehensive history of the Imperial Knights from the Horus Heresy to the Time of Ending.
- Inspiring heraldry and history of a number of major Knightly Houses.
- Informative background information concentrating on two patterns of Knight suit; the Knight Errant and the Knight Paladin.
- Full rules for fielding a detachment of Imperial Knights as a force in Warhammer 40,000, or as an allied detachment to an Imperial force.
Fealty, Honour and Duty.
At 6 inches tall the Imperial Knight is a towering war engine. Crafted in the Dark Age of Technology and resplendent with gothic details it presents a unique silhouette both in a display cabinet and on the battlefield. Fighting alongside armies of the Imperium, most Imperial Knights are part of a Knightly House. They are affiliated with either the Imperium or the Adeptus Mechanicus. Some Imperial Knights choose to forsake all ties to a noble house. Known as Freeblades, they are masters of their own destiny.
Fully jointed at the head, arms and waist this kit allows you to create some wonderful poses. You can assemble the Imperial Knight as a Knight Paladin armed with a Rapid-fire battle cannon or a Knight Errant armed with a Thermal cannon. Both are equipped with a Reaper chainsword and protected by an Ion Shield. Each also has the option to add Heavy Stubbers. You have the choice of three unique face-plates: one for Mechanicus affiliated Knights and two for Imperial Knights.
This plastic kit makes one Imperial Knight and contains a staggering 147 components and an Imperial Knight Transfer Sheet. The transfer sheet includes the iconography for:
- The Knightly Houses of Terryn, Hawkshroud and Cadmus.
- The Adeptus Mechanicus Houses of Raven and Taranis.
- Obsidian Knight, the Freeblade.
- Aquilas and kill markings.
This kit comes supplied unpainted and requires assembly – we recommend using Citadel Thin Plastic Glue and Citadel Paints.
