Don't get me wrong, a vendetta or tri-las predator, or similarly anti armour oriented unit could take down a super heavy in a single round. You just have to be pretty lucky with those roles; since you need a minimum of two pens with explosion results to off a knight. (Other super heavies, like the baneblade, need three explosions in order for you to have a chance at taking one out in a single round.)

HokieHWT Well since the Knight can be used in a non-escalation game I would go knight. In a 1k tournament today I got tabled by a guy who had 2 knights (750 points) and there was just nothing I could do with them. Now I have a baneblade and saw what it does to knights the other day so if you use super heavies a lot in your games go baneblade, but every day gaming, and painting, knight all the way.

dragonkingofthestars should be Imperial knight paladin and knight errant VS Baneblade, Banehammer, Banesword, Doom Hammer, Hellhammer, Shadowsword, Stormlord or Stormsword.

looks like you get a lot more from the baneblade kit and with magnets you could have it all

MidnightSun Baneblade. More guns, tougher, effective against an array of targets, and yeah, it's a huge tank. I like them because they fit in with the Guard army, whereas a Knight always seems out of place wherever it is (maybe in a FW Mechanicus army, in which case; why are you running a Knight instead of a Warhound? You've got a FW Mechanicum army, you're some kind of being made from money).

Same here. They offer great deals, but don't have a lot in stock apparently. I ended up cancelling my last order from them after 5 weeks waiting for it to be despatched.
