Black Knight conversion

Well, I wasn’t really satisfied with the first prototype for the Black Knights. I wanted something a little more unique then basically a weapon-swapped chaos marine. I also would like more details but without all the work. Aaand I happen to really like the grey knight models. So I cooked up an idea to convert them for use as Black Knights. Some time with a file, greenstuff, exacto-saw, superglue and some pinning later…








For refference, side by side with the 1st prototype after I head-swapped it…

I plan to paint the armor metallic black, red trim and glowy red rune insciptions, silver iconography for normal knights and gold for the squad leaders. And paint the “purity” seals up like heretical prayers scribed on the flayed flesh of their enemies. The skull on the chest center might get an actual bone paint job as the skull of great foe slain by the suit’s wearer that earned him the right to join the Black Knights. Skulls of Grey Knights being particularly prestigious.

    I think I like it a hell of a lot better than the conversion from the CSM.

    I’m partial to the wider exhaust parts for the shoulder pads, though. It looks more chaos-y, as I associate the narrower exhaust ports with loyalist sissies.

    Past that, I’d almost like to see a little more pointy; maybe on the shoulder pads or backpack.

    Alternatively, maybe a punching spike on the storm bolter or something? I’m not so sure on a plume, though, plus they’d be annoying to make.

    Skeleton on the base is win, though.

    Hi this blog entry was very helpful for me. But it was really hard to find it with yahoo. Maybe you should improve it with seo plugins for wordpress like WP seo.
