You had to know I was just going to shove everything else to the side and just start assembling these...
I still haven't entirely made up my mind about which variants to build or how to paint them... but there is a lot that can be assembled before you have to make those sorts of final-ish decisions, so I thought I'd get started - in case inspiration strikes.
I noted in the comments of a previous post that there is an illustration of a freeblade in the new Imperial Knights Codex book the actually has it's carapace painted with a pattern similar to Great War German biplane camouflage - which I think looks pretty fab! I'm leaning towards doing something similar for at least one of them!
Coming Soon to Tim's Miniature Wargaming Blog:
Oh... probably this knight... Not like I'm going to shove it aside and say "Damn, I really want to paint those Napoleonic British Rifles that I have no other miniatures painted for them to join... or opponents for them to face... or even the rules I plan to paint with them..." (not that those reasons have ever stopped me from painting something before... when I was in the mood to paint the thing... but I'm in the mood to paint something else now, so...)
In other news... I kind of just bought enough Valhallans off eBay to fill out an entire force of them... well... a "Brigade" detachment... because, y'know... TWO Imperial Guard forces is just not enough!
Hey- maybe I'll do one of my Knights in whites and greys and blues to support the Valhallans and the other in yellows and browns to support the Tallarn...
Or maybe I'll just do them in CrAzY colours like the Warhound and field a Disco Dance Party of DEATH!
