Reposted from another forum, with no official source given - but it looks pretty legit to me:

“Smaller than their cousins and crewed by aspiring nobles, low-born commoners with a knack for war, or even the bastard children of Barons and High Kings, Armigers hunt and fight at the flanks of their larger kin. Knight Armigers will open up new tactical possibilities for Imperial Knights players, like a medieval lord hunting with his hounds, benefiting from a wider range of army builds.”

Does anyone care to speculate on the size of that thing? I'm thinking Ghostkeel, but something about the gun on top makes me think it might be smaller.

Seriously wondering about size and price of those things... the legs look very "ironstrider-esque", I like it...

If they are intended as a "gateway drug" type of thing for a full-blown knight army, then it certainly works for me...

I hope they get rules for 30k too, though...

It seems like they are almost intended to replace the old IK Squires from Epic, given the lore behind them.

Omg new IK? Cant wait to see more. I wonder if any of the parts will be cross compatible with the existing Knight kit?

Edit- Does this mean there is a IK Codex on the horizon? Or could this be from the first of 8th's campaign books?

My guess is that they'll be cheaper ($ and pointswise) than than the current knights so you can fill out a more rounded Knights list. I'd guess that if the regular knights are roughly equivalent to Baneblades etc, then the Armigers will be roughly in the Leman Russ (the tank) ball-park.

Just a guess though.

Ditto. Makes or breaks whether I ever get these or not. 30k rules? Count me in for several. No 30k rules? Too expensive book holders.

The problem is, they fall behind Baneblades.

While the model is sweet looking, a pure Knight army currently underperfoms quite badly, so the new model might not actually fix anything. They need to UP the staying/firepower of the existing Knights, because if the new model will be better due to its points/dmg ratio, everyone will just spam them.

my over all feel is the fluff will try and suggest you take 2 for every knight.

They just meant size/role equivalents, as a comparison, nothing about the rules.

Surprised that they're retconning in a new pattern, but wait and see I suppose, it all depends on what types of weaponry it can carry. Judging by the build of the legs, I'm hoping for a more dynamic way of posing (something the current Imperial Knight kit sorely lacks) and that it is a whole lot swifter as well. Here's hoping that the kit also comes with some sort of lance weapon.

We'll find out soon enough eh.

Anyone fancy 'shopping up a size comparison with the Knight using the top hatches for scale?

I think it looks great. Two small ones as scout 'outriders' for my three Knights would be very cool.

If they are the Hounds to the Knightly Lord, 2:1 ratio makes sense. 4 of these and 2 knights as a 2000 army?

It definitely looks smaller. Look at the pilot hatch on the top. If that's the same size as the hatch on the regular Knights, then these would be much smaller in size.

It almost feels like "infantry" for an Imperial Knights army, which intrigues me greatly. One or two large Knights providing heavy support and laying down fire, and then a bunch of these smaller ones for objective running and flanking? Sounds awesome!


EDIT: I need to learn to read all the posts before replying on my own. Everything I wrote has already been said.. Oh well, still looks great! Hopefully they can be posed a bit, maybe like switching which leg is in front, or even allowing us to pose the legs however we want (without having to cut and saw too much).

It's not even retconning, it's just a redesign of the old smaller Squires with a more 'modern day' aesthetic really.

Until now, there has been no such thing as a distinct "Squire" Knight model. That one you posted is a Knight Lancer suit; Squire was simply the rank of the pilot (with no in-game effect, IIRC) and was depicted by a simple, single-colour paint scheme (knights used a 2-colour scheme and Wardens used more complex patterns).

Hopefully the official community site will have a size comparison shot with an existing Knight up soon.

Unless these are stupidly expensive I will be buying a few to go with my existing household.

You just know FW already has alternate heads, upgrade kits, and alternate versions on the plans for the next 24 months so I'm not going to buy too many of them at this stage.

In terms of scale it looks like it's in the Redemptor dread or Ghostkeel ballpark.

It seems to be armed with a multi-melta and a melta gun. Maybe that main gun is something better than a MM. If it's a MM then you're looking at something around the power of a dreadnought, I think.

I quite like it. I've got a few knights, painted in this colour scheme as it happens, and some of these would fit right in.

Yeah, a scale shot would be good. I'm being thrown off by all the details that look like they're identical to those on the Knight Paladin, but could be reduced in size (the arms, hip joints, that bit at the lower back of the torso, etc).
