There’s a new Knight sheriff in town, and his name is Sir Hekhtur. Check out the rumored rules for the new character model and his custom knight Canis Rex that were just spotted.
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:
Sir Hekhtur & Canis Rex Knight Character Rules Rumors

Looks like a new hero in shining armor may be on the way for the Imperial Knights very shortly with this snapshot posted up on the Reg Standard, that seems to depict the weapons mentioned above:
If this pans out to be true that’s a pretty HUGE lineup of new releases with some cool rules for a codex previously only had a handful of datasheets.
Perhaps the combination of Mechanicus and Questor rules will be enough to fill a normal sized 8th edition codex, and four new releases wouldn’t hurt either.
Existing Knight Lineup:No “official” word on the release date for Imperial Knights, however, we know the new Rogue Trader box is on the horizon, as well as Age of Sigmar 2.0 for June. Sources have told us the Knight Codex will drop by the middle of June.
