Anyone seen any good imperial knights list without the maegara?
By - uginthespirit
I'm currently trying the following as chaos knights
2* knight tyrant (valiant loadout)
Knight with dual thermals, iron storm pod
2* wardogs (warglaive loadout)
As iconoclasts the tyrants actually fight ok and get 30 wounds due to house herpes. It really suffers from lack of overwatching multiple times. That said against stuff that's short ranged and wants to move into the midfield it can make a bit of a mess.
In theory going all armigers can work. It's a lot of armigers though lol.
I’ve thought about oops all armigers before but it doesn’t really feel like a knights list at that point, but I’d honestly love to try it at least once
Right? Probably worth a try in a TTS game so you don't have to actually buy the models lol.
Why no Magearas? Is it just the cost (meaning all FW knights are out) or do you have other reasons?
I haven’t been able to actually find one that isn’t a recast much less the two or three needed to be the focus of the list that is the current meta
What's wrong with recasts? FW produces horrible quality kits at unreasonable price. Manu recasts are higher quality at far lower price.
Also I doubt you can go without it as knights are meh already snd the magaera is miles ahead of all others.
You can’t really bring recasts to a tournament if I remember correctly and honestly just following the meta blindly is not my style I just think knights have so many other tools that could use some theory crafting from list builders
Forgeworld is resin. Recasts are resin. You cannot tell the difference unpainted. You most certainly can't tell the difference when it is painted.
As for tools the problem is that the Magaera just does most stuff better. All the other knights are good/ok at some things and meh at other while this one is good at everything. I also like the FW knight with the 16 shot gun(the name escapes me), but it's only really good in chaos knights so you can use the +1D reroll hits/wounds WLT.
