Warhammer 40,000 Faction Focus: Imperial Knights

hello everyone !!

Knight household focus :

the Imperial Knights have been given a LOT of wounds. And by a lot, I mean 24

They’re also Toughness 8 with a 3+ save.

Add in the inclusion of a 5+ invulnerable save against shooting – regardless of which direction the shots are fired from, thanks to their ion shield

The thermal cannon: Heavy D3, Strength 9, Ap -4 and D6 Damage, rolling 2D6 and taking the highest when in half range,

the cannon gets D6 shots vs units with 5 or more models

Now called Titanic Feet, these are still fearsome weapons, but do not simply remove models from play.

you’ve always got your trusty reaper chainsword or thunderstrike gauntlet to fall back on, both of which do an automatic 6 damage per successful attack.

The thunderstrike gauntlet also has the ability to chuck a destroyed Monster or Vehicle at another enemy unit within 9″ to do D3 mortal wounds on a 4+. Splat!

The canny Knights general will need to be wary of enemy models with multiple D6 damage melee attacks such as Trygons, which can severely damage or destroy Knights in a single lucky round of combat.

In the new Warhammer 40,000, they can simply walk over Infantry models and leave combat while still being able to fire their weapons

Though you don’t often see large numbers of Knights in a single army, those few are easily the match for many armies, and thanks to the new Super-Heavy Detachment, you’ll still be able to field them all on their own if that’s how you roll.
