I am planning on getting a renegade knight and fitting it out as follows: 2 Avenger gattling cannons with heavy flamers, heavy stubber and ironstorm missile pod. Now for my question/s. There seem to be quite a few knight kits with various armaments. Which is the best for said configuration. keeping in mind I will magnetise it for other weapon options? I see there are several that would build this load out but as im magnetising I would like to have the most usable secondary werapon options. I Hope this is the correct place, couldnt think where else to post it. Ohh its a death guard army, if thats relevant. Thanks for any help.

The "Knight Preceptor Canis Rex" and "Imperial Knight Crusader / Warden" boxes both come with a single Avenger, so you'd need to either buy two or get a second Avenger from eBay or a bits seller.

Generally a double avenger puts out a lot of hate in one turn. especially if you're moving it to get into flamer range. In my current tournament RK list I always run one dual avenger. I've considered running 2, but I like to run another with thermal/avenger. Ironstorm is probably one of the better choices if you're in an infantry heavy area or playing ITC. Stormspear for biggies. I've run Icarus in ITC, it was not great.

The only issue is Preceptor can't be used by RK. For avengers, I like the Spellcrow ones. They're a heck of a lot cheaper than getting them from bits dealers. Most people charge $30+ for them.

Thanks for the quick replies. I guess its a Imperial Knight Crusader with an ebayed/3rd party 2nd avenger. Seems like it will have some nice options with magnetisation.

taromodelmaker also makes a conversion piece, I believe (as well as some other spectacular bits for knights).

Personally if I were you I'd buy the Preceptor kit, as it comes with a detailed interior for (I think) the same price as the Warden/Crusader kit. It's simply the same kit as the Warden with the Preceptor/Canis Rex sprue added in. Really no reason to buy anything else these days if you're just buying one questoris knight.

Yeah, that makes sense. It does seem to be the same price. An extra sprue without extra charge! Am I in an alternate dimension? TaroModelmaker got some nice bits too. Boomarked for future reference. Thanks.

Alternatively, get a Maulerfiend/Forgefiend kit, assemble with plasma guns, enjoy your two avenger gattling cannons. They fit VERY well with minor cutting and no green stuff needed.
I'll post a pic of mine later; both of just an arm (it's in pieces still) and assembled.

This, I have seen them up close on several models, and they look both really nice and chaotic. I wouldn't bother with third party junk, most of it is really ugly and has big size issues (being either way too small or comically oversized).

Sound nice, I would be really interested in seeing your example. The only reservation I have is that a Maulerfiend/Forgefiend doesn't have the 'death guard' keyword and thus wouldn't fit my army too well. Hmm ,maybe a bits seller or sell the rest of the kit on. Food for thought. Thanks

Yeah if those forge fiend bits work I could see them being great for the chaos aesthetic.

Don’t underestimate some of the 3rd party bits though. That taromodelmaker dude makes some great stuff and it’s made to work with the original kits. I think the gattling bit can be attached to the RFBC/thermal cannon base so you can magnetize and have every configuration including chaos dual load outs. He even sells the extra arm joints.

I appreciate the slight size difference in the Taro Gatling I have. Equipment made 10K or more years ago should have some variation.

Also I think that GW does also. That is why my Styrix and Mageara have different armor patterns even through they are questoris knights.

If anything, a Renegade Knight featuring two different gatling weapons is far more logical (just picked up from another dead Knight on a battlefield somewhere over its 10,000 year long service...)

The head is also from the mauler/forgefiend Kit. So yes, you want that kit!

And glad to help!!

I've been watching this thread with interest as I've been thinking of adding a Renegade Knight to my Renegade Armiger list for larger games.

And I've just managed to pick up a new Warden box for £50 on eBay

Bets this is a new Codex and it doesn't allow double Avengers?

More likely a new Renegade Knight model or upgrade sprue would be my guess.

I'd really rather them forgo the whole "renegade knight" shitck and go full ham into "chaos knights"

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

I'd look closely at the details of that Knight.

The Thunderstrike Gauntlet has spikey digits, similar to the CSM Power Fist. The Reaper Chainsword appears to have some additional spikes. The face is definitely different from anything we've seen.

Thinking about the TS / Death Guard videos, the characters were representational of the models. Maybe it's just a sprue that's coming, but I'd really like to see that sprue. I'm assuming we're getting some better rules.

So long as we get to keep the double avengers everyone has modeled. It'd be nice of our castelans got the same ability. Wouldn't be a problem given the nerfs.

What's wrong with the current rules? I can't imagine they'll be superseded after just 10 months

He likely means more rules (read: proper warlord traits, stratagems, relics - possibly to actually run a Renegade Knight list on par with Imperial Knights).

Given how strong Chaos is at the moment, a full Renegade or Chaos Knight army option would bring their soup to the boil.

I'd bet on a full scale chaos knights codex. they're going to need something to drive sales for the new kit. the diex is fine if you just want a single chaos knight to backstop a CSM army but.. thats not gonna sell kits

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