Pre-orders go up for the new Chaos Knight a week from today.
"These vile engines of destruction will have had many gifts bestowed upon them in return for their devotion to the dark gods. Some Chaos Knights may be refitted with powerful and tainted weaponry, augmenting their already fearsome strength in close combat with foe-reaper chainswords, barbarous corruptions of reaper chainswords adapted to gouge and eviscerate all who get within their reach. Whilst those who have given themselves over fully to one of the Chaos gods receive malevolent powers, granting them unnatural and terrifying abilities that few can match and defend against."
The rules are still experimental, I'm not sure why because it looks just like a regular Knight with the customary Marks of Chaos granting it a Daemon save and another costly benefit (the Khorne one looks reasonable). Here's the rules for them http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/Downloads/Product/PDF/C/Chaos-Knight.pdf
There's a choice of shields and I'm not sure if I like the one above. It looks a little cartoony for my tastes.
Overall, it's a lovely looking kit that adds some much needed clout to a Chaos Space Marine army and as much as I'm trying to resist buying one, I know it will only be a matter of time before I succumb to temptation......Although word is that the Warp is rife with rumours that the Castigators have captured a Greater Brass Scorpion of Khorne and are busy trying to break this vile abomination.....but that's another story.....
Until next time.....may Our Lady grant you her number ;-)
