So i want to start on a new painting project and this time instead of a unit of one of model i want to do an army (with a small model count). I want to enter it into tournaments and go for best painted etc. I am however a competitive soul so want an army that can play well too. To keep the model count down i started with Imperial knights and added allies. I am not even sure if this list is legal (Detachments confuse me). For my allies i have selected Red Hunters

Imperial Knight Detachment (Primary Detachment):
Knight Errant: 370 Points
Knight Castigator: 380 Points
Knight Acheron: 415 Points

Combined Arms detachment:
HQ – Sammael on Sableclaw: 200 Points

TROOPS - 3 Bikes: 100 Points
2 Meltaguns,
TROOPS - 3 Bikes: 100 Points
2 Meltaguns,

ELITE - Mortis Dradnought: 125 Points
2x Twin linked Autocannon
ELITE - Mortis Dradnought: 125 Points
2x Twin linked Autocannon

Inquisitorial Detachment:
HQ – Ordo Malleus Inquisitor: 34 Points
3 Servo Skulls

Total: 1849 Points

There we have it, the bikes are used to capture objectives and protect my knights from vector strikes if need be by lining up in columns spaced out behind the knights to stop the vector striker from being able to place there base behind my knight. The Mortis' provide my AA

What do you think?


I am thinking the best place to spend 100 points would be on an Inquisitor to gain Divination to my force, thoughts?

What do the second two knights do? I only know errants and paladins.

Is that the triple knight formation with the 3+ void shields?

That castigator is brutal against infantry. The CSM list I'm working on would be pretty great against knights but even rage terminators with multiple power fists and chainfists (even with invisibility!) are going to get annihilated against that knight. They'd stand no chance- none. I guess the downside is MCs that are good against armour and aren't instant killed by S10 are a bit better off fighting this thing, but still... you can't even tarpit that knight with cheap bodies.

The other knight is pretty good too, but can you take both at the same time? Seems like they're both lords of war and aren't armies restricted to one?
