Thank you, guys!

Zahnib, welcome to the forum.

Still working. Maybe should take a progress shot or something. Still need to base Iron Man, Hawkeye is PiP, as are the mechs. Just finished Warzone sniper gal and working on sub -assembling my first Knight.

Hi, all. Just couple quick shots of the work area. Nothing finished lately. Iron Man and Sniper gal still await varnish and basing. Been a slow month. Sometimes seems like they all are.



Mechs underway in earnest. Chibithulhu as well. Warp Spiders are there for some reason. Last year I stripped off their 2nd Ed. paint job and now feel compelled to paint them again.



Darn things are everywhere these days. Knight 1 in parts for rattle-can base coating. I hope. New territory. Not really into painting things in pieces, but it just seems the best route here. Wish I had been willing to try wth my Wraithknight, which may forever be assembled, primed and unpainted.

Since that shot the rest of the knight has been assembled so hopefully it won't be too long before some pics with paint are up here. As always, thanks for looking.

More WiP stuff. The slow train puffs merrily along. Big robots are the name of the game for now.







Spray work on the knight. So far, so good. Worked out ok as far as I can tell. Beats brushing nooks and crannies.



Legs with a little paint on and test fit to the pelvis. I am beginning to think this might work out.









Mech 1 is nearly done. Currently just need to apply weathering dust to the legs, maybe a little in other spots, and it is time to varnish and base. I have grown rather fond of this model. I like the design quite a bit, and it was fun to paint.

Knight has had its leg assembly assembled and painted. Currently working on the leg armor plates. This piecemeal approach is helping a lot to keep from getting bogged down by the size of the model.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks, zahnib! And here he is all done. With a dash of fluff, completely unrelated to anything, since this is a model without a game.



Pictured here you see the Atlas Industries Leviathan class heavy combat frame Model 011-FCT, dubbed "Stormbringer" by frame-pilot Fett Halford. 011-FCT sports multiple features that set it at the head of the pack in modern warfare, including layered ablative armor, stacked redundant heat sinks, cockpit ejection and backup escape pods, and the latest in pilot interface systems. It is armed with a top-of-the-line weapons suite combining the Lance Systems "Judgement" MRMDS (magnetic rail munitions delivery system) with a Castle Arms "Devastator" rotary auto cannon and topped by Atlas' own "Hard Rain" multi-launcher.

Also here just in time to put a bullet in the head of Prodos' version of her game is Indigo.



Neat model. Fine sample of Unicast. Would make a good stand-in for Valerie Duvall, since the official version of that character was sort of uninspired in my opinion. At least in V1 where she was armed with a sniper rifle. Can't speak to later editions.

The truth is...he is Iron Man. Tony suits up to run with the other repainted Heroclix in a game I will never play.



Work proceeds on the Knight. Legs are done. Other parts still in progress. Still going pretty smooth. Having only a few hours a week to devote to painting it is still taking a while, but I am enjoying it. I can see why these models are as popular as they are.





Feels a little silly painting the eyes like that since I will have the faceplate in front of them, but maybe they will show.

The big robots stomp on. Working on the next mech and hope to wrap up the Knight before too awfully long. Also superheroes. Thanks for looking!

Looks great! How did you do the lettering? Looks really crisp. And I agree with Theophony, the green looks great

Thanks for the comments, guys! The green is Army Painter Army Green, washed with a mix of Agrax and AP Dark tone, then highlighted with a couple layers of Army Green mixed with P3...bone colored something or other.

Zahnib, the lettering was done with a couple of Micron pens. 01 and 005, I think.

Thank you, Camkierhi! I appreciate the compliment. This Knight is meant to go along with my Marines, so they share a color scheme. Working fluff is he is sort of a loser Freeblade who is trying to get his act together and he helped the Marines out so they let him tag along.

Further assembly has taken place as parts get finished. Not much more to do.

The colour scheme for your knight is excellent, really impressive work! The lettering is also really cool.

Okay, I'm loving that Knight's colors. What paints are you using?

Thank you very much, guys!

Kepora, I am using Citadel, P3, and Army Painter paints for the most part. Some cheap craft paints were used to build up some drybrush layers on the metal frame areas. The mix for the green is a few posts above, the gold is P3 bronze washed with the same Agrax/Dark tone mix as the green, highlighted with old Citadel Shining Gold.

Thanks again!

Army Painter Army Green, got it. Thanks! That'll make a great color to use for my Master Grade Jegan if I decide to paint it!

Oof. Life and illness made progress even slower than usual, but I have hit a significant milestone. The carapace and shield are done and glued in place. Pics!







Only the shoulders and launcher remain, then it is on to dust and basing. Thanks for looking!

I really like that green, thanks for the recipe for it. The brass is excellent as well, really like your weathering on it. Any heraldic plans for the pauldrons, I ask as on my Knights all heraldry flies out of the window.

I really like your style, and those Legion of the Damned

Thanks, Arakasi!

ListenToMeWarriors, the shoulders will be red and blue like the tilt shield, with an aquila on both sides. This knight is a Freeblade who tags along with my Marines, so his color scheme matches theirs for the most part. Thank you for the compliments!

Thanks, zahnib! I am ready to see this guy finished. Just a little bit to go. After it would be nice to work on something less involved, but I have the other Knight to do and should probably get it going while I still have momentum from this one.

The colouring on that knight it lovely. Really like the wear and tear look, all the oil smudges.

whenever i try and do similar it always looks like I've just spilt paint on my models and hope for the best!


Can't wait to see it finished.
