Today is a big day for Warhammer 40,000. Pre-orders are going live for Imperial Knight Renegade, and the box contents are just an amazing value. Take a look at the picture below to see the contents of the game. Really an amazing deal, I'm ordering mine today.
On top of that the 30th Anniversary Imperial Space Marine model is now available, and they are going fast all over the place. Some stores already have had reports of, are sold out, and the UK webstore is done.
Imperial Knight Renegade
Giant war machines duel in the 41st millennium!
Dominating the battlefield with their size and firepower, Imperial Knights are towering bipedal weapons platforms that hold no quarter in eliminating their targets – but like anything else, they are vulnerable to the dark clutches of Chaos. The Freeblade Knight once known as the Living Litany is an unfortunate example; nobody knows what truly happened to this once-valiant hero, only that it has renamed itself Litany of Destruction, and has been leaving a brutal trail of devastation in its wake. The Imperial Knight Ever-Stalwart has made planetfall on Tellerax Prime with one goal in mind – hunt down his fallen brother and restore the honour of the knightly houses, or die trying!
The screaming whirr of chainblades and the shriek of missile launchers herald the meeting of two gigantic engines of war on the battlefields of Tellerax Prime. When such powerful machines face off, only one will walk away – put yourself at the controls of an Imperial or Renegade Knight and march to glory with this boxed game! Inside, you’ll find two Imperial Knight miniatures (one Warden and one Paladin), with a transfer sheet to detail them as Imperial and Renegade Knights, a Basilica Administratum scenery piece for your Knights to engage in fierce combat over, and an eight-page booklet containing rules and missions for the game, and rules for deploying the Renegade Knight in games of Warhammer 40,000!
Note - the box cover shows a converted Imperial Knight faceplate: download the instructions for this conversion for free in the tab on the right.

Iconic soldier of the Warhammer 40,000 universe, the Space Marines are recognisable to all.
