Armiger-class Knights, smaller and agile war machines of incredible power, provide mobile support and outrider capabilities to larger Knights, ensuring they are not surrounded in battle. Piloted by young squires or lowborn pilots, these nimble engines receive commands through the Helm Mechanicum from their Noble lords. The Armiger Warglaives, featured in this multipart plastic kit, excel at hunting down enemy armor with their deadly close combat weapon and thermal spear capable of melting through the toughest bunkers.
Additionally, the kit allows for the assembly of Armiger Helverins, a close-ranged Lords of War choice that provides valuable melee support to Imperial Knights armies or can be incorporated as a Freeblade squadron for other Imperium forces. Each Armiger Warglaive offers customization options with articulated poses, armor plating, six unique faceplates, and the choice of a carapace-mounted heavy stubber or meltagun. With their large carapaces, these models offer an engaging painting project.
