Without anymore senseless blather, here they are, face to face, ready to fight.
|The Imperial Knight is a really fantastic kit and a dream to build and paint. The only thing I would ask for is a bit more freedom in the legs.|
More after the break.
|Here is my Knight, Tier Morder, complete with plasticard power sword.|
|The rear of the Knight, you can see the serial number and date and location of manufacture on the back of the carapace.|
|The right side showing the giant Aquila, it really went on much easier than I expected, but was still a little bit of a challenge.|
|The top of the carapace showing the sigil of The Order of Thanatos, our knightly house. It is a raven clutching a severed eye in it's beak.|
|The name means "Beast Killer" in German.|
|My pilot, Werner Koenig's, familial sigil. "Actions not Words"|
|On the right leg is written the entire Litany of War as seen in the Imperial Infantryman's Uplifting Primer.|
|Kevin's Knight Fortis Apri. A bit less refined in it's choice of weapons here, it opts for the close and dirty kind of load out.|
|What kind of self respecting Knight pilot does not want a giant power fist? This one is called Fear's Bane.|
|If you go to the first picture of this knight you will see ABRITE on the reverse of that blue panel on the base, it's meant to be a piece of Adeptus Abrites vehicle that was blown off and then co-opted as a barricade.|
|I added a bit of heat ?scoring? to the GIANT MELTA CANNON. Damn this kit is pretty huge for standard 40k.|
|Detail shot of the top. The hatch to the left has a decal that says "Combat Field Pack" which is meant for this to mean the pilot's survival kit if he has to dismount.|
|In latin it means "Strong Boar." There is also a scar running through it's left eye.|
|The sigil for this knight. "Do Not Forget."|
|Close up shot of the power fist, with some more kill markings for good measure. I used plasticard, a plastic spoon, and part of a Chimera hatch to make this weapon.|
|The saying that Kevin asked for on his knight's right leg. Less involved than the wall of text on my knight, thankfully.|
Well, I hope you all enjoyed this post. You can look forward to an update for the Baneblade soon. I already shot and edited all of the photos so it's just a matter of writing up something meaningful to go with them. Until next time.
