A Pair of Space Knights WIP

Recommended Posts

With my Goblin Launcher thread stalled for now, I thought I'd start another one.

 

We're still in the Grim Darkness of the future though.

These are two of my Space Marines from the Deathwatch: Overkill set. I'm still re-imaginging them as Space Knights though, so I don't have to deal with official colour schemes and other related nonsense. These two are now The Knight of Wolves (Mohawk Guy) and The Knight of Remembrance (Bald Guy).

 

Made a start on their heads this morning:-

Bald Guy has a basecoat of 1:1 Vallejo Dwarf Flesh/Vallejo Wolf Grey and a Fleshshade Wash.

Mohawk Guy has a basecoat of 1:1 Dwarf Flesh/Vallejo Rosy Flesh and a Fleshshade Wash.

Thanks guys!

 

Yeah, this was the kit that made me realize Space Marines were pretty cool minis (well the character ones are cool, still not too keen on the rank and file).

Only problem is I have a load of them on my wishlist now.

 

Progress:-

Bald guys head was finished off with highlights of 1:1 Dwarf Flesh/Wolf Grey and 1:1:1 Dwarf Flesh/Wolf Grey/Vallejo Off-white.

Then he got Vallejo Bonewhite teeth, a Blood Red tube in his neck and Vallejo Oily Steel plus Black Wash mechanical bits (this bit got messy, my one big complaint about Space Marines is how inaccessible the back on their heads tends to be).

Mohawk Guys head got highlights of 1:1 Dwarf Flesh/Rosy Flesh and 1:1:1 Dwarf Flesh/Rosy Flesh/Off-white.

He also got the same teeth and metal colours as Bald Guy. Couldn't find a neck tube, instead he got a Vallejo Brassy Brass earring and Oiled Leather>Tanned Leather>1:1 Tanned Leather/Vallejo Gold Yellow>Sepia Wash mohawk plus mutton chops.

 

Gotta say, I know they're a bit out of fashion now but I am really starting to appreciate heroic scaled minis. My hands were shaking really badly today, but getting these heads finished was easy peasy.

So a Killteam can have members from different chapters and you will make up your own colourscheme?

 

That's good, good....***fold paws***

I'm just not too fond of the official black and silver Deathwatch look.

 

Plus the Overkill set really dialled up the individualized look of each dude, so, eventually, each of my guys will have their own colourscheme (Bald Guy is going to be purple with a bronze trim and Mohawk Guy will be dark grey/dark red with a copper trim) tied together with a bone-coloured left arm. They should look very colourful when the whole gang is finished.

Sounds like a nice colourscheme for both...so the Bald Guy will succumb to Slaanesh and the mohawk guy to Khorne?

Got their bone-coloured left arms done (Oiled Leather>Tanned Leather>1:1 Tanned Leather/Vallejo Bonewhite>1:1:1 Tanned Leather/Bonewhite/Off-white>Sepia Wash), with the decorations picked out in Vallejo Polished Gold.

Mohawk Guys has a basecoat of 1:1 Cold Grey/Pure Black with a Black Wash, some of decoration and trim is Vallejo Scarlet Red and the rest is Vallejo Hammered Copper. Finally the joints are Vallejo Royal Blue.

 

That's it for today. I have a new chair now that's a lot higher than my old one, and I'm getting one hell of a headache leaning over my painting table.

Bit of an update for anyone following this.

 

Still working on them, but I've had to change the bulb in my desk lamp for a much softer one (that's why I've been getting terrible headaches when I paint, my new chair puts me at eye-level with my lamp and I'd basically been cooking my eyeballs).

On the plus side no more headaches, but it's now impossible to take quickie, at the desk photos, so I'm dropping out of the WIP business.

 

I'll still be putting things up in Show-off though, so I'll see you there when these guys are done.

      Due to a certain person working up my interest in Battlefleet gothic, (okay, really all you have to do is wave a new ship under my nose, its not really a challenge) I went into my archives to see what I could paint to scratch the itch.  So out of the archives I dug these ancients out of hiding to go from prime to painted.  I am not really sure of their vintage but they are old enough to be something I bought when I was 15 and they are actual lead GW minis, which I thought didn't actually exist!  Anyway, I thought others would enjoy them.  They are the same color scheme as my favorite imperium fleet (I might have a few...) and I was trying for that sharp bright color scheme.  I think I succeeded but to each his own.  I think these are a pair of old crusiers and a battleship but if anyone wants to try their google fu and identify them, have at!
       
      enough said, enjoy a little fleet action on a Monday!

      Presenting Screamin' Eddie, purveyor of the finest human meat to be found in all the Radlands! 
       
      Had a lot of fun painting this guy. Originally, he was one of the big Nurgle baddies from Games Workshops Rogue Trader boxset, but I thought he worked well as a more generic Post-Apoc mutant (they all could really).
