|Thankfully GW stuck with past imagery for the model, and did not trying to reinvent itself (they have tried this before giving us questionable things like the Dreadknight...)|

Based on an uninspiring trailer that Games Workshop released earlier this week, the Knight will be officially unveiled on Saturday (02.22.14). Then we will have a definitive answer to some of the speculation I mused about above. We will also see the price; if rumors are true it is going to cost $140. Although not cheap in any fashion, this would place it below the cost of the Lord of Skulls, the Tesseract Vault, and even a Baneblade. It even makes the price comparable to the aforementioned Dreamforge Crusaders ($120 Leviathan, $110 Mortis). Regardless, it is certainly an exciting time. Finally Games Workshop has made an Apocalypse sized kit that people actually wanted. What’s next? A thunderhawk, or possibly a thunderbolt with the new Imperial Guard? Time will tell!
