I am going to be the naysayer about this codex and most likely the Imp Knights as well since they are similar (though from the reveals Imps are far worse). The dread abilities of being locked in by turn makes them not the great. Turn 4 I get to turn off obsec of my opponents…though most Knight games are determined before then (and lack of increase to survivability hasnt changed this). Being punished for taking a Tyrant class Knight is a big feels bad, there is no reason they shouldn’t have been included for getting your full CP refunds. Survivability… Read more »

Chef!!! I liked you until 24.30…. I have already saved £500 for me squats (Votan). But in all honesty everyone has an army they are not keen on or like the least.
Would you happen to be doing this for imperial Knights over the next week at all?

As someone that was and is buying into Knights as a project for the Tempest event in August I was worried about Chef’s take on this when the timestamp had the hint of a Chef rant.
That it meets with his approval of a ‘good’ codex is something that, for a casual player like myself, really helps and makes me want to continue the project without feeling like I’m going to ruin someone’s day for putting big spiky models on the table.

1h10 of you guys chatting? I’m 100% on for this!
And I must have gained prescience cause I just can see you guys yelling “DOOOOOOOOM” everytime you’ll play Chaos Knights.

Hey team – really looking forward to this, but just FYI but the thumbnail for this says “Units and Combos” not “changes”.

Hey, thanks for your phenomenal work!
The thumbnail shows the combo video, not the changes one.
