About the Project

A while back I brought Imperial Knights Renegade (two 40k Knights for the price of one!) but never got around to building let alone painting them. So I am starting one now. I've got an idea that somehow an Imperial Knight has become attached to a battalion of Salamanders (my 40k army) - not sure on the fluff yet... However I know there will be a redemptor dreadnought involved as he’s only half built and needs finishing too!

building the knight and adding dragon skin

Won’t bore with details of the build – I just followed the instructions.

No flamer but it does have a thermal cannon so that good enough for me!

On to some modifications next… need dragon skin so got some green stuff and had a play . Wanted something a bit like the cloak from Adrax Agatone.

The cloak looks a bit like cobblestones to me The cloak looks a bit like cobblestones to me

So I tried the cobblestone roller from green stuff…

I think it looks ok in small pieces, but the attempt of a large piece on the shoulder armour doesn’t work – too at odds with the fine details of the rest of the model. I’ll try some smaller bits when next the kids leave me alone…

Finishing building the Redemptor.

Dusting off the kit

I got the kit out that I never got around to finishing last year. Since then I’ve started using a new glue – it’s so much better than the GW stuff.

How best to FLAME?

Had to decide on weapons next – for a Salamander – so FLAAAMMEE ON!

Plasma is close enough to flames before you say anything 😉

Finished the build

I’ve left the two main bits unglued to paint them and I going to see if I can find a way for the dreadnought to form part of a base for the Knight.

 

Just a thought on the kit – it’s a amazing. There are next to no mould lines which is an amazing achievement by the designers. As ever the instructions by GW are excellent.

Need to think how to Salamanderfy (that’s a word) this before undercoating…
