Don’t miss these pics were just spotted today, from either the new White Dwarf or the Imperial Knight Codex that confirms some of the rumors for the new book!

Since before Adepticon, we had heard an awful lot recently about the new Imperial Knight codex, and Games Workshop even has teased us with some images of the Castellan Knight.

Imperial Knights 2018 Release

We already know there are GIANT FREAKING ROBOTS on the way with their very own codex from the announcement at Adepticon this year.

Scanner has been hinting there may be a lot more meat to the Imperial Knights codex that people have been expecting. However, these are just rumors of what may be on the way rules-wise for the Imperial Knights in 8th Edition:

New Knight Images

Spotted on imgur

This pic leaves little doubt as to the identity of this heraldic warrior.

Is this the pulse laser weapon we had been hearing about with two modes of fire?

Pulse Laser 36″ 2d6 S6 -2 D3 or 18″ D6 S12 -4 d6 damage.

Looks like our new hero Sir Hekhtur comes with a fully enclosed cockpit, and figure on foot, which matches his rumors from yesterday about being able to carry on after the destruction of Canis Rex (confirmed picture below from the Reg Standard).

From these pictures, this new model looks to be just a re-skin of the current Knight kit, perhaps just the base sprues with a new character sprue included in the box instead of the Warden/Crusader sprue?
