Default 1850pt 'Competitive' Imperial Knights

Hola Warhamigos

I managed to get my hands on the new Imperial Knights codex today :D and immediately fell in love with the book, i already loved the models so put them together and that can only mean, writing up a list. Now i have been away from 40k for a few months. I have missed the new Eldar books (inc. Harlequins), Skitarri. The last time i was playing was the first few months of the new Rulebook. Eldar were top dogs and Tau were scoring highly. Now i want to play Knights. I want them as competitive as possible with only one limitation. I will not include any allies

Lord of War – Knight Warden (Warlord): 375 Points

Lord of War – Knight Warden: 375 Points
Meltagun
Lord of War – Knight Gallant: 330 Points
Meltagun

Lord of War – Cerastus Knight-Castigator: 380 Points

Lord of War – Cerastus Knight-Castigator: 380 Points

What do you think?

Shame on you
This army will steamroll on everything...maybe you will find hard to win objecitve games VS fast and MSU armies, but thats it.
Also, hope never to face any eldar D weapons spam...
6 knights are as hard as it can be, tough honestly i'd drop one castigator and take some sort of ally (i know your "limitation", but you are already taking 6 knights...what's to limit anymore??): i am thinking about some scouting skitarii grunts or Raven guard marines or even marine bikers. Maybe an inquisitor with servo skulls and some retinue on chimeras??

With all those knights my eyes failed!
The rapid fire batcannon is a much needed addition to wash away enemy large units.
Same suggestions as before, though.

I'd switch to the Baronial Court Formation. You could 3++ and overwatch? Yes please. The Gallant wouldn't benefit from it, but in 1850 I'd rather use 4 Crusaders.

The Court is a very powerful combination indeed but as an All Knight army i cannot think of a reason to lose objective secured

For the same reason most armies give up ObjSec for their new formations? I understand that shifting a knight off an objective is fairly difficult, but at the same time, you can just as easily splatter all your opposition, especially if you're turtling behind 3++ and massive overwatch.

I'd say that list is definitely "competitive".
