Well, off the back of my previous project https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/0/794726.page#11153843 I decided to do something i've wanted to do for a long time. Make myself an ork themed Chaos knight army. The basic idea is to take the skeleton of an regular old imperal knight and change all the armour plating to square, blocky ork stuff, scuff it up to look welded together, add on extra chunks that look like they were laying around at the time.

Of course weaponry is probably going to be scratch built. To give it that extra ork vibe. For instance, the gauntlet is going to end up being a big, chunky powerklaw. The chainsaw i'm thinking will be a trio of buzzsaws to form a blade. I'll hopefully also be able to make some ork equivilents of the wackey FW guns, well, for the ones that are based off the standard nice chassie of course.

Head has been changed with the deffdread skull, hopefully i'll find room to place a grot or two on the shoulder/torso armour to form extra little details. I'm thinking this one is going to be a bit Flashgit themed, what with the crotchpiece being a flashgit backbanner and all. May as well keep up the theme right?

Extra care must be taken when trying to integrate alien Ion Technology with Kork Psy-tech...

Cool conversion, just remember to listen to Talker, his genetic memory got a bit scrambled but he's a veritable log-book on proper Kork Tech. Even if he is a bit mad.

I'll be making these fully modular and i'm pretty sure I have the gunner that sits at the back of the Deffstorm, so maybe i'll have a little talker manning the AA gun?

Been working on the knight through the weekends while painting other stuff in my week night free time. The legs are mostly done to my mind. Just a bit of extra layering and riveting to do on the armour, maybe some more jury rigging looking things like wires and extra pistons.

Back carapace has some work done, though i need more plasticard to continue working. Weapons are in the works too, going to be using the powerklaw as the thunder strike gauntlet and working on turning some dakkajet thrusters as the barrels for the thermal cannon. Feels fitting enough. So far the build is going pretty well.
