So, after a quick pallet cleanse with some Istvaan terrain, i found where i needed to go with the hobby post-Warlord. More Titans! Well, their mini cousins anyway.
I figured that the Legio Astorum needed their Knight Household expanding, as they will be the foot men which proceed the God Machines themselves. As i had 5 Knights waiting to be built, i got to work. First up was a Knight Errant.
The colors are of course that of the Legio Astorum. For such a big and ancient forge world like Lucius, it seemed right that they had their own Knight Household.
To mix things up a bit i added chevrons to the pilots hatch.
Getting the Legio Astorum transfers onto the shoulder pads was a lot of work. Circular transfers just dont do well on rounded surfaces. I also had the same problem with the transfers as i did on the Warlord, in that they seem to dry with this nasty film around the edges. Still working on how to get rid of that, so if anyone's got any ideas, please let me know.
The transfers went onto the shins a little better, as the surface only curved one way.
The Thermal Canon was washed with some purple and then blue GW washes (i always forget the names!) Then finished off with some black weathering powder.
Finally the basel. This was a lot of fun to do, and i always try and create interesting bases for the larger models. The Knight Astorum will be making their way through a ruined city!
After finishing this Knight i feel that i really need to go back and update the first Legio Astorum Knight i did. I have started taking that apart for a quick repaint, more on that soon.
