New Forge World: Knight Atrapos Unboxed

2 Minute Read
Jan 4 2016



Omnissiah! Come see the newest Forge World Knight on the block!  Atrapos is here and he’s quickly becoming a fan favorite.

It was only a matter of time before the Mechanicum got a Ceratsus pattern knight, and this one definitely lives up to the power of the Omnissiah!


Forge World really upped their game with this kit, including a full color instruction manual, and encasing the normally plastic bagged kit in bubble wrap and a kit box.






One of the rarest and most potent Knights, the Knight-Atrapos is a unique variant type of the Cerastus pattern. Bearing particularly rare and potent weaponry of annihilation, the Cerastus Knight-Atrapos was created solely to destroy heretek engines and xenos war machines whose very nature and existence were considered a blasphemy to the Omnissiah.
The machine spirits of the Knight-Atrapos are said to carry with them a cold and all-destroying hunger, and for the scion who bonds with them, madness is a constant risk. But for such storied honour, however dark the outcome, this may be a price worth paying.
The Cerastus Knight-Atrapos carries arcane and devastating weapons into battle; the focussed and deadly Atrapos lascutter, that sees duty as both a ranged and close combat weapon, and the violently destructive, but potentially unstable, graviton singularity cannon. With the speed and shielding of the Cerastus chassis, and the Knight-Atrapos’ Marco-extinction Targeting Protocols, the Cerastus Knight-Atrapos is an uncommonly destructive weapon of war.
The Cerastus Knight-Atrapos may be taken as part of a Questoris Knight Crusade army or as a Lords of War choice for a Mechanicum Taghmata army in Horus Heresy games. Alternatively, it may be taken in Codex: Imperial Knights armies or as a Lords of War choice in an army of any faction that is part of the Armies of the Imperium in standard games of Warhammer 40,000.


Overall a very cool knight kit that assembles just as good as its Cerastus pattern brothers, but has tons of Mechanicum styling to set it apart from them.

Rate 4.89 out of 5.34 cats for its aggressive styling and design. Sassyness sold separately.
