Mechanicum - Knights so close you can taste them!


Not long now and my first two Knights will be complete. Just some chipping and then weathering powders to go on my Knights of House Taranis, sporting the 30K version of their iconography/heraldry. The Cerastus Knight-Lancer is above, while the Knight-Paladin is below.



Have a great weekend, everyone!

Cheers
Dave

  1. Doesn't get any better than this. Again, totally badass work. I picked up some thallax at Warhammer Fest to dive right in. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. How you ever find time to do your own stuff in between work and commissions (and a family!), I'll never fathom.

  5. Great work on the shoulders and shins removing the spear and replacing it with the cog-teeth. Fantastic!

  6. Quick question. How did you do the faceplate for the paladin? Did you just smooth out, and fill in the visor area on the helmet, or were there other steps to making it a smooth surface like that>

    1. Yep, it was carving down some of the trim, and then filling the rest with putty. Here's a link to the post where I showed the unpainted version:
