Default Imperial knight or baneblade.

Hello all I was wondering if heresy could help me. I've come to a little problem. I could either get a baneblade or a imperial knight. I want the baneblade because it's a big as fuck tank, but I also want a imperial knight because it's a huge robot that I would love to paint.

So what should I get

Thanks

Are you going to use them in 40k or are they display models?

the knight costs less but has a considerable lack of firepower. I'd say that if you plan to face a superheavy then go fo the knight (to fuck big things with D sword and to save points since it can go down with a couple of superheavy shots). otherwise be the king of the party and go baneblade.

I have this dilemma too. However, I've written an 'Endstate' for my Guard army and Grey Knights (not for orks or chaos yet though). Because I want to check things off on those lists, I'm going for a Baneblade first... but I think a Knight detachment may just have to become a list unto itself for later on.

I say Knight as it doesn't use the LOW slot!

Thus, you don't get forced to use the Alter of war missions from the Escalation book, or give the opoenent that +1 to grab the 1st turn, or the extra victory points!

Being UK-based, I suggest you have a look at what the boys at Dark Sphere are able to do...

Baneblade - linky
Imperial Knight - linky

They also offer the in-store collection option if you're in London. However, even with postage, it will be cheaper than getting them from GW direct.

Don't leave us engineers with too much free time on our hands...
we WILL tinker around and build something!!!
