Xana Incursion Defence of Setna

A Cerastus Knight-Atrapos of House Malinax during the Xana Incursion.

One of the rarest and most potent Imperial Knight patterns, the Cerastus Knight-Atrapos is a unique variant type of the standard Cerastus Pattern.

Bearing particularly rare and potent weaponry of annihilation, the Cerastus Knight-Atrapos was created solely to destroy Heretek engines and xenos war machines whose very nature and existence were considered a blasphemy to the Omnissiah.

The Machine Spirits (artificial intelligences) of the Knight-Atrapos are said to carry with them a cold and all-destroying hunger, and for the Noble scion who bonds with them, madness is a constant risk. But for such storied honour, however dark the outcome, this may be a price worth paying.

The Cerastus Knight-Atrapos carries arcane and devastating weapons into battle; the focussed and deadly Atrapos Lascutter, that sees duty as both a ranged and close combat weapon, and the violently destructive, but potentially unstable, Graviton Singularity Cannon.

With the speed and shielding of the Cerastus chassis, and the Knight-Atrapos' Macro-extinction Targeting Protocols, the Cerastus Knight-Atrapos is an uncommonly destructive weapon of war.

Unit Composition

  • 1 Cerastus Knight-Atrapos


  • Graviton Singularity Cannon
  • Atrapos Lascutter (Beam Attack or Close Combat)

  • Blessed Autocimulacra
  • Macro-extinction Targeting Protocols - An upgrade to the Knight's targeting protocols that allow a far greater degree of accuracy against vehicles, walkers and creatures above a certain size.
  • Titanic Feet - The weight of the Knight alone is enough for to crush enemy units beneath its behemoth tread.

Optional Wargear

  • Occular Augmetics - An upgrade to the Knight's Occular sensors enabling a far greater degree of visual input during low-light conditions, such as night-fighting.
