Warhammer 40k - Imperial Knights
The Imperial Knights / Questor Imperialis are an Imperial faction in Warhammer 40k, produced by Games Workshop, and pilot enormous warmachines that bridge the gap between full Titans and the rest of the Imperium’s military.
Knights have a long history of service that pre-dates even the Imperium’s rise to the stars, colonies that had settled distant worlds millennia before the Emperor’s Great Crusade. These societies grew to revolve around their knights in a community reminiscent of ancient Terran feudal ones: from protection to logging and organised government. Each Knight is no mere tool of war: they are also relics of both the communities that they serve and the Adeptus Mechanicus. Bristling with firepower, protected by hand-forged adamantium armour plates and crackling Ion shields, Knights leave an impression wherever they tread.
Often taken as allies in other Imperial armies due to their size and points cost, it is an awe-inspiring sight when a full Knight house marches to war. There are a multitude of Knight variants with different loadout options, and each one is capable of bringing significant hurt to the battle in the form of large ordinance cannons, racks of missiles, or massive chainswords and fists that can pound enemy tanks to scrap. In addition to their actual bulk being a weapon itself.
