From the savage, hammer-wielding White Wolves of Middenheim to the disciplined and loyal Reiksguard and fiercely religious Knights of the Blazing Sun, thrill to classic stories about the templars of the Empire
With their shining armour, mighty steeds and religious fervour, knights are the very embodiment of warfare in the Old World. Yet no two orders of these holy warriors are the same – the savage, hammer-wielding White Wolves of Middenheim could not be more different from the disciplined and loyal Reiksguard, whose duty it is to protect the Emperor himself. In contrast, the Knights of the Blazing Sun are dedicated to the Tilean warrior-goddess Myrmidia, and their goal is to achieve perfection in the art of war through battle.
