Anyone painting the tokens, arc templates, etc? If so what colors did you go with? I saw the guy from GMG painted one of the arc templates, so I plan to do the same. I'm thinking of going with a bronze color, though a thin glaze over silver would be interesting too. No idea what color ink I'd use though.

Nice idea for a thread

In preparation for the game's release I built enough scenery to fill a table. This includes a crashed spaceship, large rock formations and a load of tiny little trees.







Now that the big box is in I've built my first Warlord, painted the basic metal and slapped on the base colors:




The coming days I shall be painting trim:




So... Much... Trim...




My Knights are on hold until I get some new drill bits to put 2mm magnets in their arms.

I've only just started assmblying, wanted to snag some magnets first. I'm doing Legio Atarus. the Firebrands. should be a nice and easy colour scheme. also nice that the associated Knight house, Col'Khak is named, well there's nothing offically printed with their colour scheme a diamorama suggests that they use a simple red with silver trim. so thats good.

Can anybody help a brother out and tell me what knight houses go with the following Legios? I've been searching but I don't know much about the fluff or how to determine this.

Legio Fureans
Legio Xestobiax

These are the two I'm going with. Unfortunately there are NO Xestobiax transfer sheets out there and I'm too lazy to make my own.

I have a hunch House Fureans didn't really HAVE any Knight houses associated with them. a Knight house tends to be associated with a Legion when the forge world strikes a bargin with a kn ight world of supplies in return for tech support. Fureans homeworld was basicly broken so I doubt struck any of those bargins and the Legion themselves tended not to form alliances, save that with Legio Mortis. Doesn't mean they can't have knights with them, but they likkely would have the knights operating with them on a case by case basis.

Thank you for explaining that. So maybe I could just pick any chaos aligned knight house? Now I need to figure out how I am going to mask those flames. I think by cutting each flame out of masking tape with an exacto..... gonna take a while.
I'll make one of my two warlords Xestobiax (good version) because I love purple.

stubber or melta is really irrelevant as the detail too fine to notice the differance unless you look real close. that said the melta is IIRC a straight upgrade for the points. So proably worth snagging if you can.

I clipped/cleaned all the tokens and arcs the other night and intend to paint them as well.

For a bronze, if you're using GW paints, you could do Warplock Bronze, wash w/ Nuln Oil, and highlight w/ Stormhost Silver. The silver highlights on bronze pop really well...I used that on the AoS endless machine cogs spell and it looks pretty nice.

For the general tokens...void shield and damage trackers, I'm thinking either a metal base with gold details or a bronze. I think metal will look better for the tokens as they'll need to stand out a bit on the command terminal. Going to likely try a Leadbelcher base, Balthazar Gold for the details, and than wash w/ Nuln Oil.

My knight kit just arrived - very neat! Impressed that 3 knights fit so well onto a single sprue and they are thicker/chunkier (in a good way) than I was expecting!

Few niggles:
1) The body segments go together well but have very soft edges to the join areas. So one has to be a little more careful lining up parts. Surprising as a lot more recent GW product have had very firm lines on them or peg/slots.

2) A shame there are no spare weapon options in the box, but a few more kits and some weapon expansion packs will solve that. Plus I'd honestly not be able to see where they could fit more onto the sprue so that would likely have meant two sprue and thus a higher cost (and I think the £20 is very solid to have in the range).




Also where are people putting the magnets and of what size for the arms? I assume at the shoulder and into the body; since whilst that does mean each weapon is fixed to a specific side, there is more room to put the magnet in; whilst on the arm joint area there is far less room to drill in a hole to fit a magnet.

Same dilemna here. If magnetised at weapon - shoulder join you have the most flexibility but much less space, while if magnetised at shoulder - torso join, you have less flexibility but more space. And there is still one unknown parameter: are additional weapons coming with or without the shoulder (component 26 on the sprue)? If no shoulder included, then it will have to be magnetised at the weapon - shoulder join. I would be surprised and disappointed if there were no shoulder component with additional arms' weapons.

Also thinking of maybe adding one under the carapace for the upcoming tiny missile pod.

I was thinking 1mm x 1mm or 2mm x 1mm (diameter x height).


Progress so far:

6 Knights in 4 sub-assemblies:

(1) legs: if leaving the banners aside for now, make an annotation of the built (A, B, or C) as the poses are slightly different, otherwise it is just a couple more minutes finding the matching banner
(2) torsos
(3) carapaces: carapace + shield + heavy stubber/meltagun, you can point the weapon in various directions but if you do so dry fit with the torsos, the back of meltagun is a bit longer than the heavy stubber and if you leave the torso and carapace separate it is best it does not hinder removing the carapace
(4) ranged weapons: I didn't glue them to the shoulder component
Pieces left aside for now: heads, a couple of banners, shoulders

2 Warlords wip in 2 sub-assemblies so far

(1) legs
(2) torsos

The sculpting is great, details are many and very neat.

No flash, no mould lines (except maybe, if you are a perfectionist, on the knights rapid-fire battlecannon).

A real pleasure to build.

For the armour plates to be painted while still on the sprue, I looked into the possibility to remove some of the frame to have easier access. I see General Helstrom did this as well for the legs' armour plates.

In fairness flash/mouldlines tend to be more of an issue on older moulds. IT's one big bonus of getting models at or near launch as you're mostly dealing with totally fresh moulds with very little wear and tear from mass production. In contrast some older sculpts can end up with far more mould lines as the mould gets older and older and isn't yet replaced with a fresh one.

Absolutely.

I would add that the sprues are quite well thought of, there are relatively few attachment points that are really visible once the model is built.

To such a point that for some components I had to look back at the sprue to identify where the attachment points were. The cut was so clean there wasn't anything to remove (I always tend to spend a lot of time cleaning every components).

Honestly the only thing on a warlord and knights that I've had issue with is ridges on the weapons for the warlord (seriously WHY ridges on the mould lines!); which is no diffrent to the pains of plasma gun marines for decades. Overall very well thought out and very neat kits! Love the legwork on the Warlord.

Weapons are for later today or tomorrow, I'll discover that then I think I read somewhere ridges were meant to somehow hide the potential mould lines ... knowing myself, I would still clean them.

Plasma guns … old WHFB skeletons are also a pain to clean.

Yeah magnetizing knights doesn't seem that important. as it si they're cheap eneugh that you can afford to have some extras in differant configs I suspect

I have everything from the GME built in they various sub assemblies. I'll wait till later to start me sector terrain box.

The only things painted so far are the tokens and arc templates since I wanted to do those on the sprue and they needed to be done first if I wanted to play.. I went with VMA gold, Agrax wash, VMA bright brass dry brush, followed up with VMA chrome. I'm not gonna bother with the mold lines on the cogs and might not even touch up the sides. You really don't look at them closely. I just wanted them to be prettier than plain plastic.

Got everything assembled (and subassembled) and sorted now ready for painting but I need to figure out what scheme I want.

Magnetised the titan weapons at the shoulders (where the model has indents for magnets) and the carapace weapons.
I REALLY hope that GW/FW realise that they need to release weapon upgrades now that include that part of the arm, else they have effectively ruined the magnetisation they themselves proposed :O

A few pictures
- 6 knights in sub-assemblies, heads still on sprue for now (awaiting magnets and more info on additional weapons)
- 2 warlords in sub-assemblies, legs and torsos, only one leg fully glued to allow for fine-tuning the other, one is resting on some rocks (pine bark), the other is advancing (nothing glued to the bases yet except for the pine bark), still many components on sprue, heads and armour plates in particular

I also started toying with civitas imperialis components
- 1 building made of 9 independent modules (ground floor + 2 x towers with 3 levels and a roof). The roof is simply made of cardboard, cut in triangles, glued together and topped with a CoD component. The roof's base is such that its measurement matches the inner of the tower's last level, and the top such that it matches the base of the CoD element. You can choose the height of the roof as you like.

While busy with the civitas imperialis stuff, I noticed a few things of interest:

(1) As we know the components have 3 different heights: low, medium, high. If you glue a low and a medium component together you end up slightly below the height of the high one, it is a 1mm difference. No big deal you may say but implications are that the crevice that is inside will then be 1mm lower than the ones of the adjacent components, resulting in difficulties putting the floor tiles in place, and potentially giving higher modules some leaning (think Tower of Pisa) because of the module's base resting lower there than on the roof.

(2) If you use something else than the floor tiles, beware of thickness. The crevice's height is about 1.5mm. Using something thicker as floor will generate problems fitting the floor into the crevice and also potentially give your higher modules some leaning.

Just finished assembling my first banner of knights; magnetising at the elbows was tricky but it has worked out great, and seems like a good ‘just in case’ for when Forge World come out with alternate/extra weapon arms. Unless they sell arms with shoulders, in which case I might cry…

a few ideas, the most simple is ruined buildings on the base, (it's what Duncan suggests in his "how to paint a Legio Gryphonicus warlord titan" tutorial") another idea might be to find some 3rd party infantry thats to scale and put them on the base. Someone suggested these to me https://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/shop/cybershadows-infantry-platoon/ (they'd be PERFECT Skitarii ) another idea might be, if you're willing to sacrifice one of the baby knight minis, to put a wrecked knight on the base would be good too most people are familer with the knights in 40k and know how big they are, so a wrecked knight on the base would hammer in the scale.

If you've got a IK in a display case this would even serve to enforce it to people who don;t play 40k, as they;d look at a IK, compare it to a space marine (or whatever) and immediatly know it's massive
