So having traded in my Magic the Gathering cards for both the Legion of the damned (more on them tomorrow) as well as half of the Imperial Knight Renegade boxed game, I have been soldiering on with both of these projects. Today I give you a few sneak (and poorly photographed) shots of how my Knight is coming along.
The knight is intended to be able to ally with any of my Imperial Faction armies, but mainly it will represent a Mechanicum Indentured Knight for my Legio Cybernetica Cohort. This means it will also be a yellow and black colour scheme. I am hoping it will scale up well to that size!
I have been very keen to make the knight unique to me and so grand plans for conversions have been afoot! Firstly I wanted to have both left and right hands for the Knight, so I set about converting a right handed thunder strike gauntlet and secondly, what fit knight doesn't have a sword and shield!? So they are needed too.... I haven't put any details down on how I achieved any of this as I can't imagine to many are interested? If you are I will detail how I did stuff :)
Left and right thunder strike gauntlets - I'm very pleased with these!
The right legs was compeltely separated at the knee to allow more flexibility in the movement.
The torso is of course magnetised on - Nick at The Burning Eye gave me a tip for that and he should be posting a guide to it soon enough so watch his blog :)
A close up of how far back the converted leg goes. I had to remove a cable attachment to get the desired flex but I am going to be adding my own cables anyway.
A final (over exposed) shot of how the stance generally looks. (The brown thing hanging in the back ground is my Jedi Robe)
I know the photography isn't great but I was in a bit of rush so you have my appologies! I like to think these type of posts are the exception these days! I am working on the right arm at the moment and putting a shield together for it so hope to have some updates for you this weekend. In brighter news, my stupidly long experiment is coming to an end on friday so I am looking forward to having more energy for the hobby and building up a stock of posts. This is important as I am off to Italy with work for a week at the end of May!
