Unveiling the Power of Imperial Knights
The Imperial Knights, known as Questor Imperialis in High Gothic, stand as formidable robotic walkers serving the Imperium and, at times, the Adeptus Mechanicus. Let’s delve deeper into these colossal war machines and the noble warriors who pilot them.
Noble Pilots of Ancient Lineage
Each Knight, ranging from small to medium in size, is commanded by a solitary Human warrior hailing from a feudal aristocratic culture spanning the galaxy. Despite their size, Knights operate in squadrons, exhibiting devastating capabilities and near-impenetrable Ion Shields.
Colossal Guardians of Battlefields
Protected by adamantium armor and armed with potent heavy weaponry, Imperial Knights dominate battlefields, capable of altering the course of conflicts. Their presence instills fear among Mankind’s adversaries, second only to the Titans of the Adeptus Mechanicus.
A Bond Between Warrior and Machine
Imperial Knights aren’t merely machines but relics from a forgotten era, requiring a Noble’s ancestral lineage for bonding during the Ritual of Becoming. This union fuses the Noble’s mind with the Knight’s Machine Spirit, enabling seamless control from the Throne Mechanicum.
Guardians of Far-Flung Worlds
Dating back millennia before the Imperium’s rise, Knights protected settlers on distant planets. Descendants of these pioneers, referred to as Nobles or Scions, safeguard their worlds, sworn to defend Imperial citizens.
Diverse Knight Armours and Roles
Imperial Knights boast various armours like the Paladin, Errant, Crusader, Castellan, and Lancer, each excelling in specific combat roles. From balanced melee and ranged capabilities to heavy fire support, these armours cater to diverse battlefield needs.
