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?

I'm going to use it in 40k

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.
