Thought I would post some thoughts on the new army I am building up. Imperial Knights.
When I first thought about it, I was rather adamant that I wouldn't paint any more yellow. I have Imperial Fists, so that's enough, so I thought I would go with Terryn. After looking at some information about Knights, I found that House Terryn is mainly based near the Ultramarines in the East. I know I could work around it, but again, I came back to yellow. I suppose the catalyst was how cool it would look, and that I can fit them in very easily into my Fists army, and it would look in place.
So I bought a Knight and painted it up. You can see the first battle I had with it here.
I also did something with this model that I haven't done since my old Blood Angels army in 4th Ed. I used transfers! I originally hated transfers, as they never fit properly on marine shoulder pads. This is before the Micro Sol and Micro Set that has since been recommended to me. But I though I would give it a go on the one, as the plates are rather large, and I am not confident to freehand all that.
Anyways here is my first Imperial Knight. Let me know what you think.
here at Bolter and Chainsword. Someone has made transfers (the Black wreath in particular), which is what I need for the personal heraldry. I can then add in my intended Imperial Fists symbol to tie it in to their allies. I have also found a place that sell the decal paper, so all I have to do is download the decals, print it on special paper, and then use them! Sounds simple to use!
I am currently in the midst of painting my second Knight, a Knight Errant, so will see if I can get that done over the weekend.
Thanks for looking!
