Road to Apocalypse: Rhuairidh’s Chaos Knights 

In Road to Apocalypse, we’re following four members of the Warhammer Community team as they expand their existing Warhammer 40,000 projects to prepare for apocalypse-worthy battles! So far we’ve seen an how an Imperial Knights army prepares for war. This week, something a lot more heretical.

Warmaster Rhuairidh James (or “Rhu”, if you’re writing in a hurry) is the diabolical mastermind behind a very memorable army of corrupted Chaos Knights. He’s been feverishly adding reinforcements in anticipation of some epic Apocalypse throwdowns, but we managed to pull him away from his keyboard and brushes long enough to have a quick chat about his work.

Chaos Knights are particularly impressive in games of Warhammer 40,000: Apocalypse. Few sights are more epic than an entire formation of Super-heavy warsuits smashing their foes with devastating firepower and brutal melee weapons? It’s even better when a large force of Knights has a strong theme like Rhu’s, whereas normally you’d only get to see one or two in a typical game of Warhammer 40,000. Keep an eye on Rhu’s Chaos Knights army as he continues to add insane new creations to it!

If you’re inspired to build your own, the new Imperial Knights Super-heavy Detachment (up for pre-order this weekend!) is a fantastic way to pick some up for yourself!


Apocalypse is available to pre-order from 29th June – alongside the new Crusade Case XL (which can easily hold four full-sized Imperial Knights), a series of Detachment boxes and more. Visit the website to download all of your Apocalypse datasheets and watch the How to Play video with Becca Scott, and learn more about what you’ll be able to get your hands on in our preview.
