Forgeworld Questoris Knight Magaera Progress

Assembly for painting is now completed. Parts undercoated with Bolt Action grey primer. The quality and fit of the forgeworld resin parts has been a pleasant surprise this time with little to be trimmed and no warped parts requiring a hot water treatment. Amazing. This is how it now looks. Now to sort out a colour scheme compatible with the last Imperial Knight but not the same.

Forgeworld Questoris Knight Magaera

Kit arrived yesterday from forgeworld. Comprises the 3 sprues of the Imperial Knights plus 18 resin parts. For the first time the kit comes with detailed assembly instructions. First job however before building is to give the resin components a good wash and trim off the extra flashing.

2nd Imperial Knight Finished

A weekend for Imperial Knights, acquired the new codex and finished number 2. With the new codex and latest Imperial Knight model upgrade it looks as if the Imperial Knight detachment may end up with more than 3 models. The next one on the modelling table still has to be the Forgeworld Questoris Knight Magaera as it offers a slight different appearance.

Here are some pics of the 2 Knight finished:

Also discovered a way of using ambient lighting for photography without shadows cast by the minis. I do not have a light box. No doubt every one knows this trick already.

As can be seen, some progress with Knight #2. It may look close to completion but it is not quite there yet.

Imperial Knight #2 Progress

Progress. To simplify painting the weapon arms are detachable, the leg armour has not been glued on yet and the paldrons are loose as well. The final colour scheme will be a mix of grey and yellow.

Second Imperial Knight

This is the second Imperial Knight assembled for painting. This time the shoulder pauldrons plus the carapace and leg armour have not been glued in place yet to make the painting of the machinery of the legs, arms and weapons easier. The model has been undercoated with Bolt Action German Field Grey spray. This machine is aligned with the Adeptus Mechanicus, and this time armed with the rapid fire battle cannon. Plans change.

Imperial Knight #1 Finished

It is a big beast as you can see from the unfinished Imperial buildings in the background.

The current plan is an Imperial Knight primary detachment of 3 Knights, 2 Knights errant and a Forgeworld Questoris Knight Magaera.

Back with a Stomp WIP and Grey Knights Strike #2

First off a bit of work in progress. The first of 2 Imperial Knights. A poor picture, rushed and the mini if you can call it that is not quite yet finished.

Grey Knights Strike Squad #2 is now finished. In the background another WIP, this time the building.

Finally for comparison the first Grey Knights Strike Squad.

Things are moving again after a hiatus. The Space Hulk minis are also now progressing, may show them soon, or not.
