Hello again everyone. I have been absent from the forums and the hobby in general for awhile. Real life sucks sometimes though, and I needed a little bit of a distraction from some of said suck...
I was inspired by the Kill Team release: Solid rules, lots of options, and best of all small teams mean I can go all out on the models. Plus, they can all do double duty in Inq28 and RPG
sessions. So, here is the first Kill Team that I am making, the Grey Knights.
All are in various stages of WIP
, but all will have a dagger, a tilt shield, a book, and a helmet as standard. I'm still deciding whether I want to use the tilt shields they are shown with here or use blank ones to have individual, painted heraldry on them. All of the melee focused will have a vambrace from the Stormcast Eternal line to act as a sort of shield, and another place for detailing. I will eventually add sculpted detail onto their legs as well.
For paint, I am thinking of forgoing the traditional scheme and painting them somewhat darker. I intend these to be a sort of Knights Errant group, and hell, maybe even a test run for Primaris Knights, who knows. I am thinking a darker silver for the base armor, a metallic black for the lettering and most of the detailing and a dark bronze for some details. Black and red as supplemental colors for some details. Not sure yet, and that is honestly awhile off, so I have lots of time to think.
Bodies are Primaris Intercessors from the Dark Imperium or Know No Fear boxed sets. GK
details are from the Grey Knights Strike Squad or Paladins. Knives are from the Death Company set. Zealot's head is a modified Blood Angel Sgt (I think) and the Incense burner detail on his backpack is from a Dark Angels kit (again, I think...) Lots of bits seller purchases over the course of this year, lol
Next to be built will be another Knight with Falchions, a Knight with a Psilencer, and a Knight Commander.
I can promise updates will be slow and sporadic, but will happen. My wife has been in the hospital since February and won't be home for a couple months yet. She is getting better but there is still a long difficult road ahead of us so my time for hobby will be limited.
As always, I'd love to hear what you folks think. Thanks for looking.
