Astra Militarum/Imperial Guard "Wiki"

Ave Omnissiah!

My blog is primarily my own personal fluff in the Warhammer 40,000 universe regarding the Draconis system such as the Knight House Yato in Draconis III, the Imperial Guard...I mean, Astra Militarum regiment trained there, the Draconian Armored Defenders, and the Forge World of Draconis IV with its Adeptus Mechanicus priesthood, Cybernetica cohorts and Skitarii legions, and the Titan Legion, Legio Draconis, known as the Dark Dragons.

Oh, and I'll throw in the Thousand Sons from time to time because they're my favorite Space Marine Legion. I refuse to believe that they are Traitors! They're just...ahem...secretly loyal to the Imperium!

New Imperial Knight!

Hey, guys! Lots of announcements from the Las Vegas Open, and guess what? Imperial Knights will be getting a new Knight. Warhammer Community has posted a lot of stuff, but this being an Imperial Knight (and Imperial Guard, Adeptus Mechanicus and now Thousand Sons) blog, I'm more interested in the Knight Armiger!

According to the post, Knights Armiger are smaller Knights piloted by bastard children of Barons and Knight nobles...well, I'll just copy and paste here.

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.

That sounds awesome! I'll keep an eye out for this guy and add him to my collection! Right now, my Knights are pretty expensive, especially when I want to add allies, so swapping one Knight for one of these guys would allow me to open up more tactical possibilities and leave more room for allies (looking at you, Adeptus Mechanicus). I'm still waiting for Imperial Armor: Fires of Cyraxus, which is rumored to be released in March and if possible, I want to run an Imperial Knight army with Legio Cybernetica allies. Furthermore, I'm planning on throwing in a Spearhead Detachment (Leman Russ tanks) alongside my Knights if this new Knight Armiger is cheap enough for me to do so.

Just look at that guy! He looks so awesome! WOOHOO! I can't wait! I hope he's a Lord of War too, maybe about 200-300 points, because that will greatly help me and open up more space for allies!
