The internet is rife with the first painted Knights by hobbyists around the world.
I've just finished the perfect warm up exercise that has painted to one of my favorite models in the army. Quick picture attached, with the final selective matt varnish and weathering film still missing. I will do proper photos with the Big Knight. I want to show off the great rands in gloss, the improved metallics and more subtle airbrushing weathering.
Tonight I will unbox the knight!, and start by building an epic little base as always. I've decided I will build the Battle cannon variety, but I am uncharacteristically torn between picking a color scheme. Looking at three options and curious to hear what you guys think.
Whether I should do the red Mechanicus scheme that has served the Cyclops Battle Automaton and the Skitari so well. They are on the way to a nice little army within the army. I like the red, because it is a very unique way of doing red and highlights the moon light theme so well.
I could also pick a version of the Blue grey I used to do the IG vehicles. It weathers beautifully and is a very nice hue that would go great with big yellow hazard stripes (which will feature on any design I pick obviously) This way the Knight would really fit with the soon to be rapidly growing IG component and still stand out too.
And finally, I am entertaining a cold green scheme. Something that makes the Knight completely independent, a hero of sorts, with enough blue and off-white in there to make him fit in. Tempted by this, yet a little worried that my rag-tag horde is starting to loose coherence too.
Thanks for feedback!
