Warhammer 40,000 – New Knight Number Two Further Progress Made

A little more progress has been made on the Imperial Knights army.  My second chassis, from the Renegade box, has been built.  I am not able to get out in the shed for long periods but, here and there, I get a moment to clip, trim and glue where I can…

I have had some pleasing comments lately in regard to these chaps. A nice stroke to the ego, I do however need to point out that the models themselves are pretty idiot proof and that even a simple paint job brings out their inner beauty.  I don’t often praise Games Workshop but these models are an exception to the norm.

I left the ‘armpit gun’ off this chap with the hopes that I could switch out the weapon once it has been finished but I suspect a magnet will be required as the clip they fit into is positioned too far back to easily fit the guns without breaking it one day.

Dry fitting some of the armour plates to get a sense of the overall scheme leaves me happy with the effect so far.

I just need to find the time and motivation to get back out to the shed so that I can call them finished in the next week or so

A project for the future (actually a project that stalled well over a year ago…) My Glottkin was always going to be a Nurgle Renegade Knight. He now has some upgrades that may prove useful in the form of leftovers from this project.  I still need to find a Carapace, and/or some armour plates, for him that will tie him into the general Knight look.  I don’t fancy buying a full knight kit just to use the plates but I do wonder what else I could get to do the job…

    1. I am stuck at home at the moment so have the option to be out there all day, just not up to doing much at the moment… Mornings are possible but even with the morning temperature the shed gets hot. Mid day and early afternoon its a place to avoid. Saw the thermometer at 48C on one of the days that I had not opened her doors up early… Sadly unable to drink at the moment so not even an Iced Rum and Coke can save the day…

      1. That’s a shame! Still, the knights are coming along well when you get the chance to do bits on them! Of course, there’s always the world cup to watch – that’s a good thing or a bad thing, depending on your point of view!
