Pins of War gave you their thoughts on the model, but what about the book? Well, now you can find out with their Imperial Knight Companion Review.


From the review:

Releasing the new Imperial Knights for Warhammer 40K, Games Workshop gave it their all. Not only is there the new miniature and the new Codex, there is also The Imperial Knight Companion, a pure collectors book of Art, Heraldry, Pictures and Background.

Games Workshop did a lot of picture and art books in their time. Heraldry books aren’t uncommon in Warhammer Fantasy either.

Still, among these, the Imperial Knight Companion is without doubt one of Games Workshop’s best eye-candy products so far… it’s a genuine 40K coffee table book; absolutely stunning to look at. I only wish the writing would’ve been a tad more engaging.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.
  • Wow. Thanks. Cheers!

    Definitely a lovely book. I flipped through it at the LGS. Was a bit surprised that in 144 pages they could only muster what – 5 pages of rules (or was it 3)?

      That’s the Codex. This review is for the companion – a separate pretty-book with photos and fluff and nothing else.

      I can’t help but feel that if the knights have so few rules in the Codex, that these two books should have been rolled into one. Still, GW would have struggled even more more to knock £75 out of folks then…

        Ah, you are so correct. I didn’t even realize they were doing these “fluff” books. Very inspiring if that is an army you are really into.

        Amazing how much material they have on it considering how much was already in the Codex!
