Spamus' Imperial Knight Project

Post  Spamus Eatus on Tue May 06, 2014 2:19 pm

Like several of you I broke down and got a Knight Titan, cause it's awesome Very Happy However, I wasn't satisfied with the lack of an interior and a cockpit, so I have set about rectifying that.  There is a ton of room inside it to place a cockpit as well as a powerplant.  Once finished, the top carapace will be able to lift off as well as the access hatch.  Also magnets will be involved!  I'm having a ton of fun with this kit and felt the need to show off a bit. Here's my WIP shots!


Basic plan for command couch.  A sentinel chair and pilot, with a headswap and extra bitz to round it out.  The part on top is from the turret on the stormraven.



Test fitting the interior



Command chair with extra gubbins attached.




Cockpit interior with more bitz tossed in

I was thinking that as well, I'm really liking the diamond/scale pattern so far.

A little more progress! Still have the arms and top carapace left to do and a couple other bitz.









Placing these decals had me more stressed out than I prefer to be when working on a model..

How exactly are you doing the scaling? I'm assuming you're painting over a template for the pattern, then hitting it with a wash....

Spray piece light red

Lay down patterened material (in this case, it was the scrubby side of a dishcloth that I removed)

Spray piece darker red (will leave the light alone under the material)

Wash with seraphim sepia and red glaze

As soon as it's done, we'll have to see it on the battlefield!

And the cockpit is pretty much done! All that's left is the top carapace and the arms. Hopefully should be complete by next weekend.


The command couch









Cramped, but comfortable!

Are you going to leave it open, or magnetize the lid?

No need to do anything too fancy, the top plate pops on and off easily enough. I might try to do something with the hatch if I can.

And got the huge chainsaw arm complete! Just the gun arm to go. I figured out how to make it modular as well so that was nice Very Happy
