Empire Knights

The noble-born warriors of the Empire fight in Knightly Orders, heroic brotherhoods who ride into battle atop mighty barded warhorses.

The Knightly Orders of the Empire are organised along strict hierarchical lines, with every novice trained in martial values until ready to take up the mantle of a fully-fledged Knight. Of the many warrior orders throughout the Empire, the Knights of Sigmar’s Blood, Knights of the Broken Sword, Knights Griffon and the Knights of the Blazing Sun are but few from a long list of the worthy.
