Working on a nice big model is a good change of pace from doing the same camo scheme over and over. Well, here's a nice big model that doesn't have a spec of camo on it.
The pictures make it obvious, this is an Imperial Knight of the Paladin class. My friend picked this up at first because it was a great deal. It was a kinda fun build to be honest. I put it together in an afternoon a few months ago. I needed some palette cleansing from all the tanks, so here it is.
The blue armor is the same technique as the Taurox I did a few months back. Black primer>The Fang Base>Thunderhawk Blue>Reikland Fleshshade in recesses>Fenrisian Grey Drybrush. The Fang and Thunderhawk were both applied by an airbrush, such a nice time saver on a big model like this.
The brass was the same Black Primer>Balthasar Gold>Nuln Oil>Balthasar Gold>Shining Gold>Runefang Steel. The first Balthasar was applied with the airbrush. Then the shade with Nuln Oil, then the next three colors were dry brushes with a lighter application on each coat.
The little bit of Steel was just Ironbreaker inked with Nuln Oil and light Runefang drybrush.
I pretty much did this guy in a 24 hour period. It was like I was painting a huge Mech back from my Battletech days.
I'll probably finish the Sentinel in the next few days. I still have a Russ in the stripper to work on if I don't get anymore stuff from him until next weekend.
