Acastus Knight Asterius $510

Acastus Knights were already rare in the age of the Horus Heresy, and Asterius patterns were even more scarce than Porphyrions. Like its counterpart, they were amongst the most massive and formidable engines of destruction available to Knight Houses. These mighty behemoths were armed to raze the mightiest edifices with conversion beam cannons – even the secondary weapons were deadly in their own right. The carapace hid a massive Karacnos mortar battery, capable of saturating the ramparts with high-impact explosives, as well as two volkite culverins to demolish targets of priority.

This multipart resin kit contains everything you need to build one Acastus Knight Asterius. This model is a Lord of War for Mechanicum Taghmata or Knights Questoris Crusade armies. The kit features a hinged carapace door, allowing the Karacnos mortar battery to be displayed or hidden safely away. The arms include articulation at the shoulder and elbow, and the waist allows rotation for dynamic posing.

This kit contains 154 finely detailed resin components, alongside a comprehensive construction guide.

Lords of War Knight Lance $1,045


Unleash a cadre of devastating Lords of War onto the battlefield with this collection of four towering Knights. Each is capable of turning the tide of battle by itself, whether in the Age of Darkness or the 41st Millennium. Together they will form a lance that will strike the fear of the Emperor (or of the Chaos Gods, if you use them in a traitor army) into your opponents.

Across these four models, you’ll find a wide range of weapons that can be brought to bear against any foe, allowing you to threaten armies of infantry and armour alike.

This bundle includes:

– 1x Acastus Knight Porphyrion
– 1x Mechanicum Cerastus Knight-Atrapos
– 1x Questoris Knight Styrix
– 1x Questoris Knight Magaera

The Acastus Knight Porphyrion and Mechanicum Cerastus Knight-Atrapos are both complete multipart resin kits. The Questoris Knight Styrix and Questoris Knight Magaera are plastic and resin kits. Each of these kits requires a degree of modelling skill to assemble.

These models can be used in games of Warhammer 40,000 using the rules found in Imperial Armour – Index: Forces of the Astra Militarum and Imperial Armour – Index: Forces of Chaos. They can also be used in The Horus Heresy, with rules found in The Horus Heresy – Crusade Imperialis: Army Lists and The Horus Heresy Book 7: Inferno.



For those times when you want to go Knight-Knight!
