The One After The Knight

Evening all,

Just a quick one. Figured I’d pop up a few cleaner pictures of the Knight I painted for charity. I realised that I forgot the banner on the chest as well as the Ion Shield. Still, for seven hours I’m still pretty pleased. I posted it up on eBay today, so keep your fingers crossed for me that I raise something!

Cheers all, have a great one.

A Knight Charity Challenge: One Man, Several Paint Brushes

Greetings all,

So today I wasn’t in the office, I hadn’t broken my perfect game and called in sick, instead my workplace was closed. We had a charity day and so everyone got to pick a cause and give their time back for something meaningful to them. Now, don’t you worry, I’m not a preachy kind of guy, nor am I here to tap you up for money. I just figured since my time today involved the hobby, I’d do a quick post.

I asked my work if I could paint something and then auction it for charity. They said yes. Awesome. Which meant from about 8am this morning I’ve been painting an Imperial Knight from my collection. I finished at about 5pm (ish) and have just about managed to get it to tabletop standard. There were definitely some learnings to take away from this, like a medium base brush from GW is the business! I’m definitely pleased with what I achieved and hope that I manage to raise a few squid for my chosen charity. I’ve put some other bits up as well, as I’d like to raise a minimum of a £100, which I figure is a realistic goal.

I’ll take a better snap when the base has dried tomorrow, will do a tiny amount of clean-up too, nothing major, here’s the quick and dirty version of the finished product.

Imperial Knight

Unusually for me, I painted some components separately. The Ion Shield I left black, no idea why.

Cheers all, have a great night.

Grey Knights True-Scale WIP Update

Evening all,

While painting the model for chapter two of the Inquisition warband, I thought I would take a quick snap of the progress on the Grey Knights. I used to be such a heretic as well… 

  
 
Have an ace eve all.

Kind Regards,

Grey Knight True-Scale WIP

Almost Good Morning,

So I recently read ‘The Emperors’s Gift’ by Aaron Dembski-Bowden (which I may have mentioned already). My review in extreme shorthand as I’m pretty beat:

Ace book, Grey Knights are cool. Well written. Worth reading.

Job done.

Now for a very WIP Grey Knight. Green stuffing isn’t finished on the abs and possibly the torso. Arms are white tacked (boy that stuff is useful) and it’s posed fairly cleverly to disguise all these things, so that you can see the rough end product of a True-Scale Grey Knight.

Side note, I got lazy and used Terminator arms and shoulder pads. I think it works pretty well. This makes these the easiest true-scale Astartes. The rankings currently go like this:

Easiest – Grey Knights

Easy – Chaos Space Marines

Getting tricky – Space Marines

This is effort – Deathwatch Space Marines

Are you kidding, fuck that – Terminators of any kind (just no, at least not for a very long time)

Anyways, pic time.

Bring it.

Bring it.

O.K. I am done. Started this post in the late late and now it’s morning (technically).

Good night all, may you have beautiful nightmares.

Best,

Ed

Johnny Law WIP Ex-Arbite

Evening,

So I’ve mentioned that I have some fine Inquisition chaps on the go. I know, I know. They’re not Chaos, but damn, they’re cool. As such eventually I hope to have an Inquisition force with a ridiculous amount of unique (to varying degrees of ‘uniqueness’) miniatures.

Here’s one for your perusal.

I fought the law and the, law won

Right, one last post for tonight,
