Imperial knight build blog.

Postby hunter101 » Sat Mar 01, 2014 10:46 am

Here is the start on what one can only say is the best piece of kit GW has produced in a very long time.

It fits to gether very well. Not to much gap filling so far.
The legs are not poseable or can I see any way of converting it.
But don't let that put you off. The top half is.
The new base is huge and the Transfers. Well that's just something new. One can only say wow to them.
Any way progress so far.

Legs are assembled minus armor plates. Main hull is done again minus armor. And so are the feet.

Pics to follow shortly.

weathering powder at this early stage? Surely that goes on last?

Had your son? Didn't even know you were pregnant! Grats!

And out of curiosity, how long does it take the weathering powder to dry?

Kidding! Looking forward to seeing some WIP shots.

Ok so as promised.

Sorry for the mobile pics. It just takes to long to yank the pics of a DSLR.

The Oil effect is a mixture of Nuln Oil, Agrax and Gloss Varnish.

Leg pistons have been done with Mithril Silver.
