    Tzen's Chaos Knights

    I am currently working on a Knight Desecrator. I am not very comfortable with painting big models, but this miniature was too good an opportunity to miss.



    I am still working on the paint scheme, I really want to go for a very dark and haunted scheme, but everything is open at the moment. I am literally winging it.

    Thanks chaps!

    Haha Denny, I think I am just addicted to painting minis. I really really love it

    Well, taking pics of semi built and painted Chaos Knights is a little dull. But I have made a start on his head. I need to tidy up the OSL glow from the eyes, and paint his teeth and such, but it's a cool head.

    Re: Tzen's Chaos Knights

    So this is the big guy so far. Still very much a work in progress, I am happy with the colour scheme in general, but I am basically thinking about the livery and such like. Thinking along the lines of something ghostly, but not sure.

    Looking good but at the moment I am getting more of a Necron-vibe than a chaos one.

    I hear ya, I am hoping the heraldry and markings will be able to break it up a bit!

    Not had loads of time to work on the Knight recently, but I have started the metal work on the gun arm. I am still mulling over the heraldry. I have an idea for it, but I need to sketch it out and then do a few dry runs of painting it.

    Re: Tzen's Chaos Knights

    Thanks Joeington! Never have enough logs!

    Even though I have got a lot of this guy done now, I still need to paint the top panels properly, and then I need to do the shoulder pads. I am still to come up with a "house" logo, and I am not sure how best to do all the markings all over him. Anyway, here are some pics so far.

    Re: Tzen's Chaos Knights

    I have been looking everywhere really!

    Well, the majority of the body work and base painting is done. I am now up to the transfers/heraldry stage. I am currently jotting down sketches for the house emblem, and looking for general inspiration!

    Re: Tzen's Chaos Knights

    Nearly there! This is the last blu-tac picture before I finish the big guy off. Been quite the slog this!







    Will be happy to share the recipe and such like when I finalise it. I have changed how I went about this as the project went on. Not too happy with the skull sign on his shield, but running out of time.

    Tzen,

    Now with the runes being added the contrast makes the model really pop.

    Cheers,

    Re: Tzen's Chaos Knights

    Thanks Captain!

    I have finished my first Knight Desecrator. Coming up for my own scheme and Knightly house hold has been really fun, and if you have been tempted by one of these kits I strongly recommend getting one. They are really good fun!







    As fun as this mini has been, I had to rush it a little towards the end. I am not happy with the skull on his Ion Shield, and the base is just a very perfunctory effort. When I get chance I plan on revisiting these areas. But I have learnt a lot, and generally speaking I am happy with him.

    What a beast! I agree with you, Tzen, that the base would have more potential, but overall this is awesome!
