Maybe, on the other hand I could see them holding off until the last week of july for pre-orders to give apoc a little bit of legroom.

They will be along shortly, knights go hand in hand with appocalypse, next week makes sense.

And as a single kit plus book, and probably dice and cards, it could be a bit of a breather week after apoc.

Honestly I'd be content if they waited for my next pay cheque

I'd expect book, dice, datacards, also the same Relics+Dataslate card set as the Loyalists. Maybe a scenery piece too, a Dark Sacristy?

There is more than one kit. It looked like all of the loyalist knights and baby knights got the chaos treatment. I'd expect 4-5 kits, Codex, Dice, Movement Dial, Black Library Novel, Cards and probably a LE Codex too.

Nope, the Dominus and Armiger classes in the videos are just conversions. The only new kit is the Chaos Knight kit.

one could hope for a conversion kit but GW doesn't really do those anymore

They said they used bits from the Chaos Knight kit and possibly the chaos vehicle sprue.

I wonder if FW is going to discontinue their Chaos knight upgrade kit once the plastic comes out...

I doubt it, the chaos knight upgrade kit is intended for the basic medium knight chassis which as I understand it is a differant knight all together, frankly this is likely to increase sales for FW rather then decrease

Oh man I just smashed my hopes and dreams to the floor. I read this title and thought for a second the OP was referring to AoS Chaos Knights (as we've had several Chaosy previews in the WarCom rumor pics) and was over the moon. Reading the post it sunk in it's just a 40k Knight with a Chaos sprue and my hopes came crashing down to the.

I do this to myself.

Also congrats to anyone who is interested in Chaos Knights.

it's not just a knight with a chaos sprue it's a whole new thing, that said hopefully a chaos warriors codex for AOS eventually comes out, it might convince me to take the plunge

Oh, I hadn't realized that (you can probably realize by now I don't play 40k), that's definitely a lot cooler than just slapping an accessory sprue with the Knight kit. I'm with you, I'd love to see the old Warriors of Chaos kits redone to modern GW standards. If the Varangard are anything to go by I think they will look really amazing.

Oh, they DEFINITELY used Chaos Vehicle Sprue bitz. Frankly, that's a sprue I'd like to see get updated.

We should know by tomorrow whether the next thing is Chaos Knights. Considering they took two weeks to hype up Apocalypse, I'd be surprised if they didn't dive right into Chaos Knights, knock out that, and move on to the next thing.

I want an upgrade sprue so I can put those much nicer looking Chaos Knight legs on my Imperial Knights. That extra joint makes it looks significantly more realistic.

So the apoc preview for the Knights faction focus gives us a little bit of info on the upcoming Knight kit. the knight despoiler is the chaos equivilant ot the questorius class of knightds (knight errant paladin etc) https://www.belloflostsouls.net/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/Knight-Despoiler-apoc-datasheet.jpg

so it looks like the kits gonna be new but it's effectively going to be the standard model chaos knight we know/love.

Yeah, I think the new chaos knight might just be cosmetically different from the imperial knight. Same weapon options, just spikier.

kind of a shame really, woulda been nice for chaos knights to begin to diverge but they needed baby steps I guess as so many people already converted questorius knights using the renegade rules.

It has a weapon not available to the normal Knights though.

Does it? The pictures I'm seeing have a chainsword, a fist, and a cannon. They're probably all cosmetic variants of current knight weapons.

The chain sword and fist are likely counterparts, but there is a turbo laser looking thing that is not comparable to any imperial guns.

Come on...we also know if a unit akin to Chaos Knights ever showed up for AoS it'd have a suitable absurd name: Akaric Slaughterborn Bloodkin Baleriders, or some awful crap.

That sounds pretty metal honestly....

But here's to hoping. Have we seen any other indications of cnights soon?
