Giant robot alert! We've got giant robot alert! And these are mean ones, too. Games Workshop is coming out with the Chaos Knights codex for 40k, and you can order yours now, along with the first two Knight kits. As if that weren't enough, there's also new Blackstone Fortress releases you can check out.
From the website:
Codex: Chaos Knights is your complete guide to the Questoris Traitoris – the Chaos Knights.
In this codex, you'll discover how the Chaos Knights were once paragons of honour and nobility, but fell to the corrupting influences of the Dark Gods. In some cases, entire households have turned against the Imperium in this manner, though others fight as masterless, lone renegades known as Dreadblades.
This 72-page hardback book is also a fantastic resource for collectors, containing tips for building your army, examples of Chaos Knights forces, and loads of invaluable reference material and alternative colour schemes for painters.
This book contains:
- Lore and art exploring the history and goals of the Chaos Knights, including the background, illustrated examples of colour schemes and heraldries for the following Chaos Knight Households – Lucaris, Herpetrax, Khymere, Vextrix, and Khomentis – as well as the infamous Dreadblades Sire of Doom, Decima, Incarnate Slaughter, The Gilded King, Hope’s Shroud, Aesyr, Empyrean Scythe, Hatred of Krastellan, and Litany of Destruction
