Deathcry and Hellscream, Grimtech’s Helbrutes, dragged the damaged Imperial Knight from the battlefield. It’s back scrapped against the cold hard ground as each Helbrute towed the Knight behind them by its feet. The head was blown apart during the battle, killing the pilot. The condition otherwise was impeccable.
“What do we have here my friend?” asked Warforce as he strode over to Grimtech, the warband’s Warpsmith, who was monitoring the Helbrutes progress.
Grimtech responded to the Sorcerer, “The prize of victory. I have an idea that requires your expertise.”
“What is it you require of me?” asked Warforce with a grin, already knowing where the conversation was going.
“With your power of the warp, and my knowledge of machines, I would like to infuse a Daemon into this Knight,” said Grimtech, one mechatendril waving at the Knight being dragged by.
“We will need a powerful Daemon for this to work.”
Nodding, Grimtech replied, “If we can bind a Daemon Prince then it should work.”
The eye lenses in the Knight lit up a glowing red. Thick chains the size of the Knight’s legs held it in place, secured to a thick metal wall. The Knight’s dirge caster let out a terrifying wail as it began to thrash against the chains binding it.
“What will you name it?” asked Warforce, extremely pleased to see the ceremony was a success.
“I will name it Ironfate,” answered Grimtech.
Chaos Knight Painting Showcase
I’m not going to say much here. Those who follow me know this Chaos Knight has been a labor of love for a good many months. So, it’s time to let the pictures do the talking finally.
Ignore any dust or stray things that floated onto this thing. I tried brushing it clean, blowing it off, but you can never get it 100% perfectly clean. It’s like these models attract dust!
I’m very pleased with my work on the Chaos Knight. It has mistakes (what model doesn’t?), but I can look past those and see the model as a whole. This is one of the few models that has met my vision from the onset.
The upgrade kit to make it a Chaos Knight adds so much character and detail, and I had to let those elements come through in the painting. I’ve seen my fair share of Chaos Knights painted where those unique details are overlooked, and just blended into everything else. That’s why I did the scarring on it, had the organic growths shown as bone, to give the Knight depth and character.
I’m pretty happy with how the blade came out on the weapon. I used my standard power sword technique for it.
Not sure what else to say. This thing has taken me so long to do that it’s hard to believe it’s done.
