White Dwarf Leaks.....
It can be laid out like this. March will be Imperial Knights, Legion of the Damned, and Sentinels of Terra. Crazy leaks out yesterday just filled every news story yesterday. These are solid leaks with pics, and you can find links to these here.
While we do not yet know for certain, a codex is most likely coming up for pre-orders to be released on the second Saturday of March, which means next week will be very exciting as more information is discovered about the Imperial Knights and the Legion of the Damned.
A few things we know about the Imperial Knights from leaks.
Imperial Knights can be fielded as an army. A primary detachment of 3-6 Imperial Knights.
Can be fielded as Allies fielding up to three Imperial Knights as a single allied detachment for each primary detachment in your army.
(no mention yet of Adeptus mechanicus in the White Dwarf leaks)
Knight Errant and Paladin have the same stat lines and are super heavy walkers with the single facing Ion Sheilds 4++, and the invincible behemoth rules.

Sentinels of Terra and Iron Hands Print Copies Coming.
The Black Library revealed to us this rumor earlier in the week from a reader on this site. With it being confirmed by White Dwarf leaks that the Sentinels of Terra are indeed coming, the Iron Hands coming around Easter sounds very solid.
Emailed black library to ask about supplements. Was told to expect some soon with print edition of sentinels due out march and iron hands clan due easter.
