View Full Version : House Krast (Imperial Knights) Heraldry.

Warseer, I have a problem.

I have just
finished assembling my Imperial Knight. (Great kit by the
way). I am eager to get it painted up to use in a local tournament
tomorrow. (I may be burning the midnight oil).

I have decided that my Knight will be a member of Mechanicus aligned
House Krast, and have started looking around for information about the
colour scheme.

I have found these two images:

As you can see, both depict Knights with House Krast Iconography on,
but they seem to have wildly different heraldry.

I am wondering: Is it the case that one of these images is the default
Heraldry and one of the Knights is special in some way. Or Is this how
mechanicus knights show personal heraldry and I can do what I like
with those areas?

White Dwarf today seems to suggest that Mechanicus Knights do not show
personal heraldry. So I am very confused.

And while I am sure the answer will be in the Knights Companion Guide,
the copy I have pre ordered will not be here for a week, and I am
eager to crack on with painting my knight now.

Also, they used to be blue... and have a diffrent crest

But we can ignore that for now.

Krast is my House choice also, I guess we'll have to wait until next week with companionand codex. My best guess is that the markings would be formation identifiers or something similar.

The first two schemes seem fairly similar - red with silver/grey trim and variation (blue/yellow) in personal or squadron heraldry.

If they don't show personal heraldry, it could be that they all adopt the heraldry of whoever is the current leader of the House.
