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.
