Key Features

  • Muster a mounted Battleline for your Slaves to Darkness army
  • Builds five lance-wielding Chaos Knights mounted atop wicked war steeds
  • Sound the charge and slam armoured cavalry directly into enemy lines

Chaos Knights ride at the forefront of any ruinous host, and their coming heralds the death of empires. These dreaded champions charge into the deadliest of battles without a moment's fear, seeking the glory that is theirs by right. Impaling enemies on ensorcelled lances and trampling formations beneath frenzied hooves, Chaos Knights sow havoc in an avalanche of blood and iron.

This multipart plastic kit builds five Chaos Knights – elite, bone-crushing cavalry sworn to the Ruinous Powers. These mounted warriors wield cursed lances and Chaos runeshields, outfitted with menacing armour and ornate barding. Cloaks billowing behind them, hooves kicked up in a charge, these models convey a terrifying momentum atop their warped war steeds. The kit includes components to build one model as a Doom Knight champion, who can be armed with a cursed flail or ensorcelled warhammer instead of a lance, and comes with a choice of alternate helmets as well as a unique runeshield and steed head. You can also build one model as a Hornblower musician, and another as a Standard Bearer with a large flag topped by one of five Chaotic sigils – one each for Khorne, Nurgle, Slaanesh, Tzeentch, and Chaos Undivided.

This kit comprises 74 plastic components, and is supplied with 5x Citadel 75x42mm Oval Bases. These miniatures are supplied unassembled and unpainted – we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel Colour paints.

Games Workshop have two broad methods for painting their models. Both are entirely viable options, though have significant differences in the paints required (detailed below). You can find all of the required paints in the 'recommended paint' section below, whether you simply want to get it out onto the tabletop ASAP (i.e. 'Battle Ready'), or want to take your time and make it a masterpiece (i.e. 'Parade Ready'):

1. Classic Method - uses acrylic paints to build layers of colour and depth. Usually topped off with a shade paint to really make the shadows pop. Probably the most beginner friendly method as mistakes are often easy to fix.

2. Contast Method - uses ink-like contrast painsts which sink into recesses, providing depth in highlights and shadows with a single layer of paint. It can take some practise to get this method to look great, but it's highly satisfying when it does work. Less forgiving when mistakes happen, though arguably the quicker method of the two options.
