    We Who Are Hunters of Daemons - a Grey Knights Log

    .
    Hello fellow Warseer peeps.





    A long time ago,
    in an edition far far away...


    Some crazy fool painted their Grey Knights in shockingly shining gold:


    Argh, it burns!


    I don't know why. I've got no excuses. I guess I just thought that gold was cool... or something..?




    But a mere decade after the release of Codex: Daemonhunters, it was time to redeem myself!


    Into the goo


    Out of the goo


    And rebuilt with new swords (single falchions) taken from the plastic Knights box.


    Plus some spending, because apparently tanks are a thing Knights can have now.





    Silver is cool, right?
    There's even a little bit of actual grey on them now.

    The first squad finished was, of course, the beautiful Rogue Trader Terminators (they were the first Knights I bought, back when they got their 3rd edition Chapter Approved rules in White Dwarf):

    Re: We Who Are Hunters of Daemons - a Grey Knights Log

    Other than the fact that they kept blinding people, I decided that it was time to renovate my Knights because I really wanted to make a model of Inquisitor Velayne Ramaeus from Deathwatch: The Outer Reach, and she was going to need some dudes to lead.


    Time travelling Necron fighting radical Ordo Xenos Inquisitor? Sold!

    My sculpting still leaves a certain something to be desired, but one mutilated Inquisitor Lok model later...







    Lok is actually a pretty good match rules-wise. Plus he's hilariously undercosted thanks to his free unit of henchmen.


    Fellow with no hands, blind lady, and some Servitors with rock drills - looks combat effective to me...

    I cheated a bit and Lok's Ramaeus's Servitors found themselves promoted from a Necromunda Pit Slave gang.

    Really nice start, looking forward to seeing more. I have to say, the gold looks pretty special...

    Good job on the Velayne sculpt, and those Rogue Trader GKTs also look great.

    Next up a pair of Strike Squads




    And a pair of Razorbacks with Psycannons (Psybacks?) for them to ride around in (or not, since they don't fit in, but still...)

    Great models, that's a great selection of henchmen!

    Especially love the bald women! Where did she come from?

    No Inquisitorial force would be complete without some Blanchesque BDSM enthusiasts, so I added some Death Cult Assassins


    Plus Gideon Lorr (!) to lead them

    Unfortunately he lost his Plasma Pistol, but he's still cool as all hell.

    And the fist Dreadnought, 'Stompy', is done and dusted

    Re: We Who Are Hunters of Daemons - a Grey Knights Log

    The last of my metal Knights became Purifiers (the only way to use up the Incinerator models besides Purgators):

    There just aren't enough candles in 40K any more...


    And I started painted up my old Knight character models

    Captain Suspiciously Similar To Stern


    And a Grand Master.

    He was originally named Aeneas.
    Unbeknownst to me, there was an actual canon Grand Master Aeneas, who got mullered by Ahriman and put into a Dreadnought in Imperial Armour 2. His heraldry still doesn't match though.

    Re: We Who Are Hunters of Daemons - a Grey Knights Log

    3rd edition Terminators, who I never owned at the time, but took the opportunity to pick up off eBay:



    And a 3rd Strike Squad using the newer models:

    Ew. They're so... lightweight.


    Also, because I have no self control when it comes to eBay and old models, I picked up this delightfully converted Terminator Librarian from Space Crusade days:

    Looking lovely so far!

    I particularly like the Inquisitor Ramaeus conversion. Your painting skills have certainly improved since the golden knights!

    Rhinos for the Death Cultists and third Strike Squad:



    And a couple of assassins:

    I'm not sure why the original assassin model appears to be wearing sandals...

    "Well assassins are like ninjas, and ninjas wear saddles, right?" - GW in the 80s.

    Everything you've done looks great man! Where did you get the candles from for the Purifiers, that's a great idea!

    Re: We Who Are Hunters of Daemons - a Grey Knights Log

    I've painted up the ancient Librarian model:

    Surprisingly he's about the same height as the 3rd ed. metal Terminators (if they put their legs together they'd probably be slightly taller), and so doesn't look totally out of scale.

    The candles are hollow polystyrene rod with a bit of 1mm brass rod stuck up the middle to make the flame, and some blobs of liquid Greenstuff to make running wax.

    Re: We Who Are Hunters of Daemons - a Grey Knights Log

    Although I (re-)built my second Dreadnought, 'Stampy', with a Multi-melta and Fist, Psybolt Autocannons are mightily tempting, so I pulled off his arms again.



    And had enough bits left over to make an Aegis Defence Line:

    Excitement!

    Re: We Who Are Hunters of Daemons - a Grey Knights Log

    A selection of random henchmen:

    In my defence, I didn't technically buy the awful Daemonhost models - I got them in a mystery box at Gamesday.

    ---

    Once upon a time, to go with the gold Knights, I had a pure Hereticus Witch Hunters army. With the exception of a couple of models, it completely ceased to exist when Sisters of Battle got their White Dwarf Codex.

    Since Tempestus Scions are a thing now, the Inquisitorial Stormtroopers can ride again!

    unfortunately I misplaced the picture I took of them before I stripped and re-undercoated them. You'll have to use your imagination to picture Bleached one fatigues, Camo Green carapace and Scorched Brown pouches.
    It wasn't the best of colour schemes...

    More silver!
    The 3rd edition Terminators which I got off eBay came with some friends, so I've built them as an Interceptor Squad:



    And I made a Ministorum Priest out of some bits box parts and dodgy greenstuffing:
