A work in progress shot of my Renegade Knight. Of course, hardly anything is glued because it's going to be painted in a bajillion sub assemblies. I even tried out a colour scheme for the carapace... *ahem* - armour plating. This is Cobalt Blue Colourshift metal paint over the top of a gloss black primer. My airbrush is hardly professional quality but I think it looks veeery interesting.
I've done a lot of work on the model but I haven't actually finished anything and tend to just sit there, patting myself on the back whilst opening another Tuatara craft beer. It was all becoming a bit self indulgent. I thought a blog post might help me get my shit together and determined that I should finish the legs first:
I've used quite a few bits of kit on it now and keep going out to buy new stuff. 40k is like a disease. Brand new Maulerfiend and Heldrake kits have been sacrificed to the cause in order to make the shin guards and arms. I think I've got enough plastic crack to finish it now.
This is yet another reverse joint walker so I have named him Chickenhawk. Lots of Admech sigils on him at the moment but I need to Chaos it up at some point. I don't just want to stick spikes on it though.
I'm currently debating whether to remove the pauldrons altogether and sculpt some fleshmetal or nurgly shoulders. At least I've made some measurable progress.
