We seen this bad boy at the Forgeworld open day, and its now available for a cool $390!
At 3 times the price of a normal one I don't think we will see many here in NZ
The shield looks very different, and I am still in 2 minds if it needs some coloured transparent plastic or similar in the gaps, or even clear backlit with LED's
It is however huge, but $390 huge?
Rules look different enough to offer alternatives to the Errant and Paladin models
The Cerastus Knight-Lancer is a first strike weapon, attuned to rapid assault tactics and lethal outflanking charges against a foe. It is justly renowned for its speed and its power, as well as for the temperamental and restive nature of the machine-spirits which dwell as anima within its colossal frame.
Because of this reputation, the most impetuous and glory-hungry of the Knight Households are driven to bond with these war machines, their own souls a match for the fury caged within their mounts. The greatest of these pairings will go on to create martial legends among their lineage, while for those whose temper cannot fully master that of their Knight-engine or whose own lust for glory might see valour outweigh caution on the battlefield, their triumphs are likely to blaze brightly, if briefly, in the chronicles of their Households.
The Cerastus Knight-Lancer is a complete multi-part resin kit, designed by Daren Parrwood. You can also see Daren talking about the making of the Knight-Lancer on our visual feed. Rules for using the Cerastus Knight-Lancer for us in Warhammer 40,000 can be found here.
