Stronger rules and better rules are NOT one and the same.

The new yannari rules are not as strong, but far better.

can neither confirm nor deny I lost track of what I've got right now.

I ran this army this past weekend. Went 3-2(15th/50). The whole time I was really wishing I had some strategem or relic support in terms of anti Psyker, or perhaps the 2" reach strat.

Very cool.

Is that a 2000 point list?

So a single super-heavy detachment with 2 Armiger vehicle squadrons?

Nice. I'm going to be on 6CP at 1500 points with a single Renegade Knight and 3 Armiger vehicle squadrons...

looking at what you have there, I'd have run the list as Imperial Knights. You'd lose the double gatling guns sure (say One's a Battlecanon?) but get access to the IK strats, relics etc. proably be worth it in the short term well waiting for a Chaos Knight 'dex

Ultimately the power of an Inquisitor extends as far as he can make it extend

I've had that suggestion several times. I understand why. I'm just try to jam out some points for ITC RK. After this weekend and one RTT that hasn't posted yet I should be in top 3 for RK.

With the new teaser video the speculation is that your getting a renegade Knight Dex.

I don't hope for House traits, but I think a chaotic expansion of the Freeblade Benefits and Burdens concept would be pretty neat.

Either way they also need to give them to basics of the Stratagem list to allow them to compete.

Same here, but I'm assuming by how well your knights have been modelled as Renegade Knights that it's the Questor Traitoris you prefer playing?

Perhaps, but more likely that it will just be new models. Time will tell.

Yeah I'm Chaos all the way. I also like playing stuff that isn't what everyone else is playing.

Honestly though.

If I was to build a pure Knight list before it would be Imperial, no doubt.

But if they keep the rules for Chaos Knights unit’s the same and give them a whole lot of new rules, I build chaos for the shear customization ability.

If the truth can destroy it, then it deserves to be destroyed.

For myself, as I explained on another thread:

I'm going to keep the loadouts IK-compatible, but stick with Renegade knights for now - purely because I like the idea of playing daemonic knights

There's no denying that an IK list would probably be stronger, but that's not always the most important thing about playing 40K.

For a few years that I'm aware of. I've got 2. It's a nice kit.

Is it essentially the Warden kit with an additional sprue of resin Chaos parts?

Finally!! Those knights look so good. This is one release I'm very excited for. I will definitely be getting some more knights.

The new Knight kit is named two ways. I feel like this means Chaos Knights are getting classes like crusader and gallant.
That means weapon restrictions to only certain models. Now not interested. Awesome looking stuff though.

If the truth can destroy it, then it deserves to be destroyed.

The article does say that everything from the Index will be usable. I think their just pimpin some of the new new stuff. Gave everyone a Chaos themed name.

So based on previous previews, how long until this new codex lands?

So let's look at our new chaos knights a moment shall we?

we're getting two,
the first is the Rampager



it looks like it's armed with a chain sword, thunderfist gauntlet and heavy stubber, nothing to see here. it's just a Gallent with spikes.

the second, the desecrator, is more intreasting

it's melee weapon is clearly a thunder fist gauntlet, but the rangerd weapon is a.. differant. That is NOT a RFBC. (you can tell it's not just a varient apperance by the lack of a heavy stubber in the shield BTW) It's something new. Maybe some sort of Autocanon?

Ultimately the power of an Inquisitor extends as far as he can make it extend

It has power cells so some Uber-Las, or a Volcano cannon in miniature (barrel design)?

The cells imply energy weapon and yes the muzzle is reminiscent of volcano cannons. Presumably will be less powerful than the Castellan Volcano Lance though.

Looks like a Volcano Cannon typ weapon to me. The barrel looks a lot like other volcano type weapons
