Games Workshop has announced two new codex sourcebooks for Warhammer 40,000, both focused on the towering war machines known as “knights”:  Codex Imperial Knights and Codex Chaos Knights.  Both books will release later this year.

Like other codex books, each of these sourcebooks offers background lore and game rules for Warhammer 40,000 players.  Each book details the history, tactics, and equipment of the featured army, as well as stats and game rules needed to deploy those units on the battlefield, plus Crusade rules unique to each force.  Codex Imperial Knights focuses on the knight houses that have remained loyal to the Imperium of Man.  Codex Chaos Knights, in turn, reveals those houses that have embraced the gods of Chaos.

The Codex Chaos Knights will be available before its official launch as part of the upcoming Chaos Knights Army Set.  In addition to the new codex, this boxed set features the new Knight Abominant and two War Dogs, supplied unpainted and unassembled.
