FINALLY FINISHED. This took way too long to complete. I partly blame the first Imperial Knight from the set for causing a bit of modeler’s block. But it is finished!
Painted along with decals made Carlson793 from Bolter and Chainsword. Made using the Legio Gryphonicus decals. The color scheme felt a bit too busy at times but in the end i liked how it came together. The gun arm is fully magnetized to be able to switch between the melta and cannon forms. Then there is a pile of masks for the knight also.
And finally together with the my last knight (ignore the cardboard box, this is a little too much plastic to fit in my homemade photobox)
Hurrah my biggest miniature project to date is half done! This is the first of my Imperial Knights from the Imperial Knight: Renegade boxed game. I am pretty happy with the results this. I bought the box back in August and was slowly working on it since. I am happy with the interchangeability of the equipment. This was the first model I used custom decal paper with too. Compared to the transfers from the box they were considerably thicker. Next time i would probably only apply 1 coat of clear gloss instead of 3 because they did cause a noticeable bump after application.
I am happy with the results of the freehand to extend the black flames on the left pauldron and the Ion Shield. There is also a bit of zigzag on the right shin plate but it is slightly obscured by the chaos star. The only thing I am on the fence of is using the Dried Blood vallejo paint to freehand the smeared chaos star. It fluctuates back and forth between oh it looks like blood or it looks like crayon in my mind.

A squad of Grey knights I built up. I really like the sculpts and I think they turned out decently. Was too lazy to base them up. They are the first Imperium allied minis I ever painted up. The power weapons are done with the lazy method, metal base with blue glaze and edge highlighting.
This is an older painted figure of mine. I was trying get an iridescent effect by using some pearl powders. Tried various different things to get the effect to look half decent. At first I tested mixing the pearl powder into some Future but this gave a really splotchy effect on a piece of test sprue because I tried brushing it on. Because the airbrush was not an option i then used a thinned blue paint as the base to lessen the splotchy effect. After a couple layers of this version of the pearled paint it dried to slightly chalky finish so i added a coat of thinned gloss varnish on top to try to get rid of that. Still ended up a bit chalky.
Next time I want to try airbrushing the pearl and future mixture on top of a base color so it covers more evenly. Maybe one day mister Swarmlord will be put in the old ultrasonic, but I still enjoy how he turned out.
