If you were hoping to take a Knight in your CSM list without getting rid of your special rules, it looks like you can! This is actually a good marketing strategy from GW as well, considering they are coming out with a new Knight, this gives more players a reason to buy it!
The rumors come from Reddit and while there isn’t a ton shown, it’s quite big! Let’s first check out the new Knights, then get into the rules!
GW AdeptiCon Preview Reveals New Chaos Knights
Yes, new codexes are on the way soon for Chaos Knights and Imperial Knights! The crowd at AdeptiCon have already seen the books for the first time – now it’s your opportunity to admire these mighty tomes.
Chaos Knights Abominant
The Abominant has everything you could want in a Chaos Knight – tusks, a volkite combustor to devastate distant enemies, an electroscourge to crush anything that gets too close, AND it’s a psyker. Yes, a Knight that has psychic powers! And that gun is a nod to classic Heresy-era weaponry, which their Imperial counterparts have all but lost.
The first miniature up is the upgrade kit to make a Knight Abominant, which will actually be a psyker. It covers most of the things from the above preview video, so don’t expect too much else from them. One thing to note here though, is all the current Questors, and Dominus Knights currently go for $170, so we’re not sure what the upgrade sprue will push it to when it releases separately…
The new army set is a great way to kick off a Chaos Knights army and perfect for adding reinforcements to an existing host of Descecrators and Rampagers. This box will be the first place you’ll be able to get your hands on the new Codex: Chaos Knights before it comes out as a separate release soon after.
They also mentioned the army box will have 3 knights (the Abominat and box of two Karnivore models) and the codex, along with some transfer sheets
Chaos Knight War Dog Karnivore
Armed with a reaper chaintalon and slaughterclaw, the Karnivore can tear its way through anything from Dreadnoughts to Trygons.
Be careful not to upset the Karnivore, or you’ll have to face its bigger brother – the Abominant!
Next up is the Karnivore, which is fully geared up for close combat.

So if you’ve been dreaming about the new Knight, but don’t want a full Chaos Knight army, this is perfect. Remember as well, it’s only one from your army, so you can’t just do this in each detachment.
