AFORCE IN THE IMPERIUM
After millennia of isolation and battles untold, each of ttre Knight worlds brought its own unique heritage
to the Imperium,
a rich tapestry of heroic tales and legendary deeds. Regardless of the influence of their alliesfthe manydifferent
knightly
houses each remained protectors of their own ancient customs and archaic rites,
Even during the Great Crusade, the Nobles never welcomed
the Imperium or the Adeptus Mechanicus as saviours, for
in their own minds it was not they that needed saving. Since
then, the Knights have time anci again answered. the call of
war to aid Mankind, serving the Imperium with duty and
honour. Despite this, their hezrdstrot-rg

When the first Knights joined the Imperium, the Imperial
commanders who treated with them loathed the officious
ceremonies and formal language used by their new
comrades. They tvarmed quickly, however, when they
witnessed the Knights wade into combat, crushing foes with
each powerful stride. Upon learning that Knights could
smash open enemy armollr rvith the same easewith which
thcy cracked open enemy battlc lines, the long rituals
became far easier for Imperial forccs to endure. Even dour

honses were known as the Great Houscs, and their names
and heroic deeds became known throughout the galaxy.
Amongst the greatest of these powerf ul allies were House

IMPERIAL KNIGHTS ATWAR

When battle calls, each knightlv house rouses theit gle:rt war machines. A lone Knight is a one-man army, more than capable
of tuming back a raiding xenos rvarband or a herd of lampaging beasts, For largcr threats, cletachmenLs or entire households
of Iiriehts march forth - a sight as stir.rinq and glorious for its allies to behold as it is terrifving for its foes.

STRUCTUREOF A
MECHANICUS.ALIGNED HOUSE,
PRINCtrPS

Those knightly housesaligned to the Adeptus
Mechanicus are also feudal, and are organised in a
manner similar to their Imperial cousins.The ruler of
the household is known as a Princeps, and his decree
is final. The rank below Princeps is that ofBaron,
and positions within this rank are still hierarchical,
based on the individual Barons' influence and barrle
experience.For his ruling council - also called an
Exalted Court - the Princeps will promote four
Barons. Known as Barons Prime, these individuals are
second in power only to the Princeps himself.

Each Baron will have a nurnber of vassals beneath hrm,
and it is their duty to muster shorild they be called to
battle. The number and exact organisation of these
knightly vassals varies wildly from house to house ,
depending upon the size and pon'er ofthe knightly
house itself. Regardless, rvhen the summons to war
is received, lances, groups of oaths$,orn Knights and
entire household detachments will be drawn from the
entire house's strength; only in unusual circumstances
will the Princeps, or one acting in his stead, choose to
select only from a single Baron's vassals.

KNIGHTS ERRANT
Of the varied types of Imperial Knight seen upon the
battlefields of the 4lst Millennium, the Knight Errant is
best known as a devastating, close-ranged killer - a tankhunter extraordinaire. Enemy armour is quickly melted to
no more than hissing piles of molten slag by the thermal
cannon slung underneath a Knight Errant's mightl
shoulder. Once a foe is sighted, a Knight Errant typically
seeks to close the distance - firing off hissing blasts from
its thermal cannon as its great strides propel the walker

super-heavy battle tank. Some Knights Errant choose a
thunderstrike gauntlet over the great blade, using the
unmatched power of its grip to bludgeon foes to the
ground, to crush the innards ofliving creatures, or to rip
limbs from enemy Titans. Such is the awesome power of the
thunderstrike gauntlet that tanks can even be flipped over
or hurled aside to roll and crash amongst the Knight's foes.

armour and directional ion shield, Knights Errant do not

hesitate to charge straight into the teeth of the enemy's
most potent weapons. Once amongst its foes, a lone Knight
Errant can best an entire tank battalion, shooting and
stabbing its way through their formation to leave only

into the very thickest of the fighting. Even protected by
their armour and ion shield, battle damage is common
for such venerable engines ofwar. After each action the
hulking giants are literally crawling with Sacristans, for

twisted ruin and blackened hulls in its wake.
The Knight Errant is a mainstay of many knightly houses.
The strengths of the Knight suit are perfectly matched
by the aggressive, charge-the-foe nature of its pilots.

most knightly households uphold the tradition that postbattle a Knight should not be seen with so much as a single
scratch upon its livery. The ancient machines are lovingly
cared for, with attention paid to every armour plate and
sacred unguents lavished upon every cog. No lessscrutiny

- Knight Warden maxim

It is not Lrncommon for some Knights Warden to bear a
thunderstrike gauntlet in lieu of the murderous reaper,
using the energy-crackling power of its prodigious blows
to hammer apart even the mightiest of foes. The Avenger
Lance formation made famous by House Terryn has been
knorvn to feature a trio of Knights armed in such fashion.
Upon realising that they cannot match the might of an
Imperial Knight, many of Mankind's enemies will attempt
to overrun the war engine with weight of numbers, or
probe around their more vulnerable flanks. It is against
tactics such as these that the Warden truly comes into its
o\vn, thanks to the volume of firepower it carries. Should
fast foes such as Tau Piranhas or Ork buggies streak
around a Knight formation's flanks, seeking to compromise
the walkers' ion shields, they will find a Knight Warden
a formidable obstacle. Tracking the oncoming foe, the
Knight Warden will fire short bursts from its avenger,
quickly and efficiently turning such light armoured vehicles
into burning wreckage. Because of their penchant for
engaging enemies at close quarters, many
also sport a turret-mounted heavy stubber

KNIGHTS CRUSADER
A Knight Crusader advances to the optimal firing position,
braces its mighty legs and lets loose death. Blazing away
ltith two \,veapons, a Cmsader sends forth a fusiilacle of
heavy shells from its avenger gatling cannon, sketching
deadlv patterns across the foe's frontage. Its other weapon
- a thermal cannon - causesthe very air to sizzle as it hisses
out blasts that can reduce a squad of Chaos Terminators
to bubbling slag with every shot. With each sector it clears,
the Crusader's steady advance brings nctv targets under its
sights, and it continues to fire with every stride.
The priority for a Knight Cmsacler is to find rvide open
fields of fire, and if tl're Noble pilot gives ant,concern to his
olvn shelter, it is but an afterthought. E:rch snch warrior has

THE EVOLUTIOI{ OF THE TERRYNCREST

In \I25, Maximilian

Terryn,
his house's founder, had
visions of a mysterious white
itallion which appeared to
rvarn of danger. The horse's
head on a blue field was
taken as the house's emblem.

In late M30, Lord Brutus
Terryn led his house against
the Great Kroktar, a beast that
had plagued his people for a
decade. \A'hen it was slain in
the Battle of the Six Swords,
details were added to the crest
in honour of his victorr'.

It would be his descendent,
SeuitoniusThucididesTerryn, who
swore an oath ofallegiance to the
Emperor of Mankind, and amended
his house'screst to honour their new
status.Under his auspices,Terryn's
Knights first fought alongside the
Imperium's Ultramarines.

ryBALT. FURYOF VOLTORIS

Tr balt is the High King of House Terryn, his esteemed rank
rlenoted by the single cream band upon the carapace of his
Knight Warden, the Fury of Voltoris. The crest of House
Ierryn is proudly displayed upon his tilting plate, anrl the
u hite horse's head, the preeminent symbol of the house
.ince its founding, is repeated often, including upon the
qun shield ofhis avenger gatling gun. The Fury ofVoltoris
is further bedecked with battle honours and kill markings.

It is said that the full telling of High King lvbalt's triumphs
takes well over twelve days to complete, and it is a tale that
is still growing. The High King is ever eager to add whole
new chapters to his ongoing glory Most recently, Tybalt
led the defence of his home world, Voltoris' against a Tau
invasion. Though the battle lvas won, the costly xenos
attack was an insult to his house's honour, and Tybalt vowed
a mighty revenge upon the Tau.

was chosen by High King Tybalt to join
his Exalted Court, and named in long ritual as the Herald,
which in House Terryn also carries the titles of the AllBaron Artemidorus

hailer and Executor of Orders. The paired stripes upon his
Knight Crusader's carapace mark Artemidorus as a Baron,
while his further elavated rank can be discerned from the
cream-coloured crenelated line atop his tilting plate - the
honourable symbol borne only by the Herald.

In House Terryn a Herald's duties are plentiful, but
mercifully

streamlined upon the battlefield. The Herald
ensures the fanfare - trumpet-blasts blared through his
vox-grilles - befits each Knight who enters the battlefield. It
is the Herald's role to issue first warning of enemy attacks,

YORAC.SPEAROF THE RIGHTEOUS
FF

Baron Yorac's Knight, Spear of the Righteous, bears the
blue of the house, the white stallion's head and the black
demi-Aquila on a red field, but also numerous additions
unique toYorac. The broad check design on its shoulder
and left knee guard is drawn from his family lineage' Each
family wears differing patterns on their cloaks, a reminder
of the clans among the first settlers of Voltoris, before the
rise of House Terryn. Over time a Knight's heraldry will
change as its pilot is tempered in the fires of war. On Spear
of the Righteous, Baron Yorac has added a single white
strip over his starboard salvation hatch. This indicates that
he escaped after his Knight was crippled, climbing free
from ics wreckage. Far from a mark ofdisgrace, this shows
both a Noble's tenacity and the skilled repair work of their
house's Sacristans.

Myrcor's personal heraldry is displayed upon the shoulder
and knee ofhis Knight Paladin, Scythe ofLight. The black
diamond on the cream coloured field also appears on the
banners and pennants ofhis ancestral home. Although he
only recently completed his Ritual of Becoming, Myrcor
has already campaigned off-world several times, earning
many battle honours and the hard-won esteem of his peers.
His greatest success was on Tormark, where he pushed

ahead of his fellows to undertake the daring rescue of the

governor still clinging to the undercarriage ofhis Knight.
