I’ve never had interest in running Knights until recently. I thought they were too big and took away from the fun of having battles with lots of infantry slogging it out. To me, I figured Knights turned the game into a “take down the big one first and the day is ours” sort-of affair. When Renegade came out initially in 2016 I was a little tempted and by the time I was reeled-in, the box was gone! The savings, gone.
Imperial Knight: Renegade has made a startling and impressive return in a new box. Things are slightly different now though as the box includes some scenery with the two Imperial Knights, too. The savings are very impressive and I refused to pass it up a second time. So, before I get a chance to let you guys know how it plays, I’m here to show you the goods.
Knights To See You!

The build instructions come with information on how to build to Crusader, Warden, Gallant, Paladin and Errant. With the sheer amount of components in here it appears that you can build two of the five variants. Having those options is absolutely nothing to moan at from a consumer perspective. Should you wish you could build one for close combat and the other ready to rain down death from afar. Of course, there’s also a large decal sheet to give your Knights the heraldry you so desire. The Chaos sheet of decals is notably smaller, though. My only grumble at this point.
Death, Destruction and…Scenery?
A further injection of value into this box is the added scenery that comes with it from the Sector Mechanicus Galvanic Magnavent kit. This is for the game that comes within the box so that your Knights have something to dash around and take cover behind. Of course, this along with the Knights, are fully compatible for use within regular Warhammer 40K, too.
As you can see, the Renegade box is positively packed. The two Knights take up most of the space with the scenery taking up a little extra. It’s a big, weighty box. One I was certainly elated to have land on my doorstep.
We’ll come back very soon with how the game itself plays, providing I can get them built quick enough! Whether you’re looking to play Renegade as its own game or if you’re looking to add Knights to your 40K armies, this box is filled with two key things. Giant, ass-kicking robots and some stellar savings.
