Honour and fealty

Whether aligned to the forces of the Imperium or the Tech-Priests of the Adeptus Mechanicus, every Imperial Knight has sworn an oath to defend Humanity against the terrors of the galaxy. Instilled with an unshakable sense of honour and fealty, they are fearless warriors willing to lay down their lives in service to the Emperor of Mankind.

It’s also packed with colour profiles, new artwork, stunning photography and, of course, all the rules you need to field an army of Imperial Knights on the battlefields of the 41st Millennium. Here’s a little of what you can expect to see inside:
