Continuing with my surge of enthusiasm to make some headway on the Chaos Knight, I have something worth showing. Granted, it’s nothing special, but it is a whole lot of base coating. As anyone who has painted one of these can tell you, there is a ton of base coating to do on this thing. I wanted to jump in, and work on something where I could show actual progress, and getting the metal areas base coated was the task.
Really, it’s just a whole lot of Gunmetal Metal (Vallejo). On the lower torso/legs, I started picking out some of the details like cables, and you can see some colors on the tabard. I also used some Runelord Brass (GW), to pick out some metal areas. That’s the next task, to pick out all the details on the upper torso.
There’s still a metric ton of work to do, but getting one color on there really makes it feel like I’m getting somewhere with this beast. Oh, I have also started on some of the armor plates, but I want to get those closer to finished before showing those. Maybe in the next update.
Oh, the Thermal Cannon is magnetized if you’re wondering why it’s on there upside down. Just saw that in the pics ;)
I’ve done a fair bit of work since putting together this post, so the next update will be more interesting.
Update: The model is complete if you want to check out the Knight painting showcase.
