Like everyone else in the hobby world, I became absurdly excited with the news of the Imperial Knight release. Naturally I ordered one from my FLGS (with a cool 10% off RRP), and assembled it immediately.
I made a small adjustment to the pose of the legs. I hated how it was so static (about the only thing i don't like about the model) so i went for a forward-striding pose. I wanted my Knights to match my Reaver from the Legio Astorum Titan Legion, so i replicated the scheme on the Knight.
I haven't made a decision on the transfers i want to use yet, so i've left them off for now. That being said, it looks pretty smart without them!
I used the Eclipse symbol of the Legio Astorum for the shield decoration. Its a little wobbly, but it was my first attempt!
I lavished the usual amount of time on the base, going for a generic urban theme.
Chain sword Arm:
Battlecannon. Finished off with some weathering powers.
The working parts at the rear were kept simple, with a splash of bronze.
Some weathering was applied to the top of the carapace to break up the blue.
Naturally i magnetised the arms:
Unlike most magnetised Knights, i magnetised the limbs at the elbow:
Most I've seen magnetised at the front of the weapons housing. Reason i did this was because if Forgeworld release any weapons options (which they're sure to do) then its more likely that they'll be sold as a whole arm. Well, that's what I'm hoping!
Finally here's a shot of the Knight with Praetorian! Like father like son eh?
