Imperial Knights, or Questor Imperialis, are hulking mechanical walkers, piloted on the battlefields of Warhammer 40k by members of noble Imperial houses. Melded with their machines through the archaic Ritual of Bonding, the machine is controlled directly through the mind of the bonded individual.
Wielding enough weaponry to annihilate small armies alone, these towering creations inspire awe in allies, and dread in foes.
Adorned in heraldry of their houses, they stride into battle to smite the foes of the Emperor of mankind with weapons ranging from Plasma Annihilators to Reaper Chainswords. Void Shields provide these warriors with a near-impenetrable forcefield of defence.
Within the game itself, Imperial Knight armies will rarely have more than a handful of models, and are one of the most elite armies in the game. When every unit you possess can knock out 3 or 4 enemy units, you can expect to be outnumbered!
The large, smooth surfaces of Knight models lend themselves to painting with an airbrush, and allow for complex freehand heraldry to make every single unit stand out as much as it deserves.
