My buddy had an old recast wing to a Thunderhawk that he gave me to turn into some terrain. I felt like it was a perfect bit of detail to go on the base.
I decided to start with the legs. I magnetized the torso joint and left most of the assembly separate to make it easier to paint. As I mentioned in the teaser, I wanted my Knight to be the looted version of Gerantius so I took that concept and just started plastering bits all over the place.
|Never skip leg day, Bro.|
I had finished the legs before I had even considered Orking up the main body. I dove into my bitz boxes like Mek possessed! Gork (or Mork) had blasted me with inspiration.
|Gettin' some Dakka|
I used a leftover Trukk driver as a pilot and drilled in some tusks from the Battlewagon and Deff Dread kits. For the other side, I wanted a gun platform so I could "counts as" the various carapace weapons available to Renegade Knights.
Now that I had all of the necessary Dakka, I needed a face that would truly bring this monster to life. I used the Morkanaut face with a Deff Dread jaw to achieve the desired look.
|A face only a Mother could love!|
|Sir Krumpius, Da Green Knight!|
With this project out of the way, I find myself a bit overwhelmed. I have roughly four weeks until the summer term, and I have no idea where to place my hobby focus! My FLGS is running a summer Shadowar: Armageddon campaign so I could paint up a new Nob and some Yoofs. I also need to finish assembling my Age of Sigmar Start Collecting box (Orks of course). I need to paint my own Warboss since I got rid of my old one. I have to knock out some Meganobz. There is a small local tournament coming up, but I don't know if 8th edition will come out before then so I am hesitant to work on a list. Feel free to give me some suggestions! Thanks for reading. Thanks for checking in on me after such a long absence. Next Time: The Nowhere GT!
