Am I really done painting my Knights?!?
Of course, they’re not 100% done because they still have to be based (excuse the fact that one of them is on two small bases–I misplaced his large base early in the painting process and never bothered to go searching for it after the fact. Rest assured that he’ll be on a proper sized base when all is said and done).
And on top of that, despite my normal disdain for transfers, I actually went ahead and purchased a few sets for these bad boys. In fact, I’m softening on the idea of transfers altogether. I think it was when I saw the backs of my Centurions and the sloppy Omega on the sergeant, that I toyed with the idea of replacing all of my hand painted omegas with transfers.
It’s weird to think that after so many years of utter prohibition, I could flip-flop on the issue.
Well, anywho, this post includes the photos of the finished knights. Of course, the ones taking inside under “warm” lights look a little off, but you can click on the quick light-box photos for better pics.
The arms, as always, are magnetized, so they can be swapped and position freely between the models (which is why you see different armament on them between the various photos).
Looking at them now, I can’t honestly choose a favorite. I’m keep on the one that’s hunched over (he should eventually be re-positioned to be stepping up onto something big–like a rhino or the like), but I really do like the “leader” with the two white stripes as well. If I had to pick one that I liked least, I think I’d go with the one with a checkered knee-cap.
Why? I’m not sure: maybe because his cowl is two colored? I do find that a little off-putting.
Still, I’m very pleased with how they all came out.
You can click on any of the photos for large images (I particularly recommend you do so for those below as the light box does wonders for making models look better).
