The Knight Castellan can be likened to a towering fortress, a bastion of Imperial might garrisoned by a single Noble lord and armed with an array of weapons so fearsome that they can tear the heart from an invading army. It is the foremost artillery platform within the lances of the knightly houses, hammering the enemy at extreme range from the moment the fight begins. With its dual plasma core sending energy surging through its huge frame, the Castellan can mount a frightening amount of weapons systems while maintaining its ion shield against incoming fire. They are employed to punish those dishonourable enemies who cower behind veils of arcane energy or the massed ranks of lesser warriors – after all, as the pilots of the Knights Castellan are fond of saying, there is no escape from the Emperor’s wrath.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Knight Castellan. An enormous super-heavy walker sharing a basic shape with a standard Imperial Knight but expanding upon that basic structure with more armour and a number of weapon upgrades, this Knight variant focuses on devastating long-range artillery strikes. In the box you’ll find 2 frames of components making up the main bulk of the Knight: the torso assembly, the shoulder sections and the legs (which are designed to be modelled on either side of the Knight, allowing some posing), along with 2 sets of shieldbreaker missiles, 2 siegebreaker cannon and 2 twin melta guns. A frame of upgrades is included – this features a volcano lance and plasma decimator which attach to the arms, a head and mask which are unique to this Knight variant, and special chest and groin armour. There’s also an immense carapace, extended in order to fit all the weaponry, and an engine block standing at double the standard height, with 2 power cores and 4 exhausts.
This kit comes as 141 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 170x105mm Oval base. An Imperial Knights transfer sheet is included.
