Hey all :). As you may of read a few days ago in the review of the Imperial Knights I picked up two of them to paint up. Finally almost a week later they are both finished and what a heavy duty project they both turned out to be. At first I thought the model would be a fairly easy painting project due to its large scale, but its actually quite a tricky model. The Imperial Knight above was painted in a color scheme from the House of Terryn.
I had to mask of a lot of the model to make sharp color separations and make templates for the grid sections on the shoulder pads. The Imperial Knights are also very transfer heavy and a lot of those transfers are quite tricky to apply. If you are planning on painting an Imperial Knight I would highly suggest leaving all the armor plates off the model to paint separately as it makes things easier. Overall I really enjoyed painting both of them and in my next post I will show the Imperial Knight I painted from the House of Raven. I have also put a video below in which we talk about the model. Has anyone else been painting the new Imperial Knight? What do you think?

Holy Cow – that is impressive!!!!
Hey Cheers 🙂 The Imperial Knights are a lot of fun to paint up. I'm seriously considering getting a few more to paint in some of the other color schemes.
there great to build and to paint. Like you I have 2 of them. I have changed the leg posses on mine. was a bit of a faff but it is well worth it at the end.
You've done a great job! I really like how you have weathered your plates too!
Got to say I really enjoy the video content, should definitely become a larger part of the blog if you can find the time.
Will definitely be making more videos as they seem quite popular. I think the next ones will be techniques for painting Imperial Knights.
Is TEN finally making tutorials? Sign me up!
Yep, we are doing video tutorials now 🙂
Loving the vids can't wait to see more
More videos! I like it, esp this young lady's accent. Is that you, TEN?
I'm still thrown off by your base work but I've said my piece on that. Really liking the colors on these. Keeps within your unique style – not highly saturated – but adds some more character.
Love it, and I can't believe how FAST you can crank these out.
Maybe I just missed it but which primercolour did you use?
