Citadel Realm of Chaos knight #2



 So with the warband complete, I've moved onto the unit of chaos knights. Having painted one last year as a one off, it's on with number two.


 Like before, it's one of the Perry knights from 1989.
 I've used part of a banner pole from the Khorne juggernaut as some extra detailing plus the severed head from a goblin chariot yoke.



 Finally, like the previous knight, I've added a chain rein. Luckily I found a length under a pile of lead on the desk which fitted perfectly. I'm awaiting a delivery but didn't realise it was coming from overseas (China most likely, judging by the estimated arrival date) and is probably still on the Indian Ocean or somewhere at this point.



 I managed to get this one knocked out pretty quickly and am already rattling into number three. I must be getting into a rythym with the red armour. Hopefully I'll be posting him up early next week.

  1. Beautiful work. Whatever formula you're using for red armor is fantastic.

    1. Thanks a lot Bill! The red armour process is Coat D'arms Brick Red, thinned chestnut and black ink shade then highlights of Brick Red, Mephiston Red and Averland Sunset.

    2. Thank you kindly Shaitan! I might need to borrow that formula on some upcoming Chaos warriors.

  2. He really has this feeling of weight and might that befits chaos knights. Smashing.

    1. Cheers Mec. They were big old sculpts even for 1989 standards. Gives that appearance of having some real clout!

  6. A green and red mount, check, red armor check, severed head check. Everything I could hope for in a chaos knight. ;) Nice work Ned
