The Horus Heresy: Cerastus Knight Lancer
Cerastus Knights are sophisticated and towering war-suits, with speed and agility that far exceeds the lumbering Questoris-class. The Knight Lancer is the most widely-known variant of the Cerastus chassis, held in high esteem by more impetuous House scions. Its protective ion gauntlet and potent shock lance are perfectly suited to duelling titanic foes face-to-face, and such pilots often race ahead to seek glory by vanquishing the enemy's most prized war machines.
This multipart plastic kit builds one Cerastus Knight Lancer, a swift and aggressive Knight armed for close combat. Even taller than its Questoris-class cousins, the Knight Lancer's long legs allow it to stride across the battlefield in moments. It deflects incoming attacks with its ion gauntlet shield as it races forward, unleashing crackling bolts from its colossal arm-mounted shock lance before charging in to impale the heaviest threats.
This detailed model is highly customisable, with joints in its ankles, knees, hips, head, arms, waist, and even individual fingers, allowing you to create your own dynamic pose. Its head and arms also offer glueless assembly options to adjust their position mid-game. The kit includes a variety of cosmetic options, including two variant designs for kneepads, greaves, and pauldrons, four hull-mounted icons to represent different allegiances, an armorial shield, and three different pennants. You can also build the Knight with an open hatch, exposing the seated pilot within.
This kit comprises 208 plastic components, and comes with a Citadel 170x109mm Oval Base. It also includes an Age of Darkness Cerastus Transfer Knight Sheet, containing 517 optional markings and icons for the Knight Households of the Horus Heresy. This miniature is supplied unpainted and requires assembly – we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel paints.
