As long as the points are close to what Knights cost and they get the hades gatling cannon, I'd be just fine with that.

Ya' know what he needs?
Big metal wings.

He's basically a big RoboThirster already.

There's lots of walker conversions on the net just using the basic Lord of War kit. A bit of time and imagination could save you a few pennies. The FW kit is very nice though.

Here's one I found for example:

Well I am sold!
The only thing I have issue with is the chains.
Why would they not give it 40k rules?
It will out sell the lord of skulls.

It isn't just that it's a LOS with legs that makes the kit exciting. The prospect of a new unit with potentially good rules at a realistic points cost is the tantalizing thing.

And though I give serious props to whoever built that kitbash you linked, I'd (usually) much rather have a kit from FW. Other than maybe @Blackadder and a few others, it's sorta difficult to hold a candle to the pros they have on payroll.

That is pretty much my point. The LoS is 888 points but 90 where as this will be what 140/170 and be 350 to 450 points. As well as the fact it's the best looking model they have done for a while.
The other chaos Knight is a different kettle altogether. Most people will be able to make their own from the standard kit, we just need rules.
Which is why I am so surprised that GW didn't do it themselves.
Still can't wait to get me one of these.

I don't know about the cost.







are the 3 sprues for the LOS.

So looks like it would be taking the first 2 of the sprues, but the 3rd seems to be the whole bottom bit. So replacing that with the walker legs sprue like



+ the Forge World plates and it will likely be somewhere around 120 like some of the knights they have done before.

Still though, without seeing rules for it, and if it is 30k only for 30k & 40k or even 40k only would be a big thing. Also if it actually is maybe just Khorne version of a knight with a gatling.

Well it's not quite what I wanted, but from today's newsletter:

didn’t spend my entire week in Warhammer World though, much as I’d like to! On a recent wander through the Forge World Studio I saw something pretty exciting, a Knight sworn to the powers of Chaos. I hear it’ll be ready for production soon!

I bet they were just keeping the Chaos Knight Paladin until after they released the Imperial Knight Crusader. Can't have Chaos having better stuff than the Imperials now can we?
