>1) For non-Imperial Knight armies...you can get up to 3 as a separate detachment. This is a separate detachment from allies and lord of war...which is the new template I am guessing we will see in future codexes...sorry everyone Escalation is standard. Unless of course I looked at that box wrong...

>2) Datasheets. There is a section in the codex, after organization chart, that covers Datasheets. None are mentioned but looks like these will be popping up in books...sorry everyone that don't consider them official, etc...

>3) Ally Matrix:
Battle Brothers: Everyone Else
Allies of Convenience: Eldar,Grey Knights
Desperate Allies: Tau, Dark Eldar
Apocalypse: Orks, Necrons, Chaos Demons, Chaos Space Marines, Tyranids

>4) Primary Detachment: 3 - 6 Imperial Knights. 1 is the designated Warlord (roll on Imperial Knight Warlord Trait table...yep Warlord Traits).
>Additionally: Your remaining Imperial Knights in the Primary formation can roll on the Knight Apparent/Knight Seneschal chart. 1 - Knight is -1 WS/BS, Ion Shield is 5+ now. 2-5 Your an Imperial Knight. 6 - Knight is +1 WS/BS, Ion Shield is 3+ now.

>5) Concerning Warlord Traits: They range up and down from being useful to 'meh'. Examples: +1" to Run/Charge range. +1 to Building Damage Chart. My favorite: Warlord gains It Will Not Die!

>6) Let me stop all the questions now ladies and gentleman. Cannot show pictures. There are no other unit entries for Adeptus Mechanicum or Freeblades. They are not even listed on the ally chart.

The reason why Chaos didn't get these is because they are giving it a new aesthetic. Imperial stuff but with spikes and crayon scribbles is all right for Traitor Guard, not so much for anything else.

Seriously, if they make Chaos Knights they're going to in all likelihood follow the pattern of the Heldrake and Helbrute and have the pilot fused into the Knight.

Dark Eldar can be very mercenary at times - some Kabals will quite happily loan their forces out to anyone who's willing to pay them. Of course, Dark Eldar being who they are, they're likely to turn on their employer if they sense weakness or outright abandon the fight if they think it's going badly, so they're even less trusted than other aliens.

if they ever make a knight lancer, that's what they'll be armed with

also going by epic all Knights should have a visor mounted shock lance (basically a pile bunker), but GW omitted them for the stubbers, probably to give them some versatility since they already have the D+stomp

Because, like the Inquisition codex, you can't put in the Knight detachment if one of the detachment in the army holds a Come The Apocalypse spot in the Knight's ally matrix.

In other words, it's the reason you don't see IG/Daemons hanging out with Inquisitor Quixos and his merry band of daemonhosts.

So it takes up an Ally slot. But even if you hit the 2k point mark and double up, your allied detachment must all be compatible in the matrix. You can't pack in Imperial Guard, Knights, and Chaos Marines in the same army since CSM are Come the Apocalypse for Knights.

They are, but Chaos uses them for their original purpose: farming implements.

My issue with all these big models is that for each new release, boots on the ground are worth less.

Not much good to begin with, but infantry has always been a tax to get the good stuff, typically heavy support. Now it's not restricted to heavy support and so you're not anymore forced to take units that are less good.
