From a Knight's End To A New Year

2016 has arrived!! New year, new projects and undoubtably there will be new models n figs to be bought and painted! First though, in the final days of the old year, I finally managed to finish off the Freeblade Knight - 'The Orphan's Wrath'. Took a fair amount of time overall but can't honestly say I loved every minute - from unboxing to the build to the planning of the overall scheme and livery to the painting adn the final finish. Amazing kit, amazing value and woulkd recommend it to any and everyone. Anyhow... here he is. The last Imperial Knight of the lsot planet of Tiryns - 'The Orphan's Wrath' piloted by the vengeance fuelled Sarpedon!

Freeblade Imperial Knight 3
Freeblade Imperial Knight 2

 And there he is. Am beyond chuffed with how he turned out. Hope you like him. Fully magnetising him was so worth and would recmnd folk do regardless of whether you intend to use him in game or not (I don't even play but still wanted to suck the last drop of marrow out of the kit - lol).

So.......2016 eh?!! I actually made 11 new year's resolutions.......and then realissed that 9 of them are hobby related.....ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ But anyway - hope everyone had a great new year's eve and best of luck for the year ahead - paint till you drop!




  1. Fantastic work on the Knight – the marble and blue gives it a wonderfully cold, almost statue-like appearance. I’m inspired to try something marbled myself now (need to pluck up my courage and sit down with the tutorial from your previous post). Looking forward to seeing what you do in 2016 - keep up the good work!

    1. Hey - cheers very much :) was a long haul getting the big fella done but really happy with the result. Hope that tutorial helps you, any questions please feel free to ask :D
      Just finished building/sculpting an ArchMagos so he and a covenant of FW Scyllax automata are up for the first paint of 2016!!! Will post some WiP photos of the Magos soon.
      Cheers for looking in


  2. The Knight is indeed a fantastic piece! Love the choice of colours and the cool, statuesque effect they create!

    And since I forgot to mention this earlier: Thanks so much for that amazingly detailed marble tutorial! It will really come in handy for one of my next projects!

    Keep up the excellent work!


    1. No worries KS and thx very much. Hope that Marble tut makes sense and is helpful. Haven't made a tutorial before so made it as detailed as possible to cover all the bases and make it in some understandable. lol.
      Oh cheers for the inspiration for making the AdMech Magos from a Cairn Wraith. Got that from you build 'Legion'- love that piece - really great stuff :)
