The Hawkshroud Knight Errant’s torso and shoulder guards have been painted. Next I’ll work on the arms. Once the arms are complete I’ll add transfers and some light weathering. Still a long way to go! After the jump check out some top down views.
Does anyone want to throw some suggestions my way on what I should call my Knight? If it’s good enough I might just use it. Some of you may remember I I asked you guys for name suggestions for my Thunderhawk gunship and one of you came up with Absortio. Which I used and painted on to the model.
Or more seriously, 'Beatus' (means 'angel', but don't quote me on that) or anything else Latin really.
I like the blue steel you have applied to the model, reminds me of your Grey Knights.
As for the name, I'd say something along the lines of "Helios". The model is quite bright, like the sun.
LOL i'm working on the same knightly house!!
You can call it "AGILULF" like the "living armour" of Italo Calvino's story…a knight made of pure will 🙂
Nice reference 😀
Custodis, meaning Guardian..
Thought it was in reference to the Yellow… like Custard.

Throwing more latin out there, I think Asteraceae sounds cool. It's the plant family that includes dandelions (which, interestingly, get their name from the French for 'lion's teeth', according to wikipedia).
Tudon being the Viscount of Krastellan
meaning heated, warm, melted, etc.
adustio sol (burning sun) or sol zenith…
Avatar of the Federation Against Rogue Traders.

That was me! How about "Fidem" for this knight? It's latin for loyalty, which, along with honor, are the highest virtues of House Hawkshroud. I also like "Tudon's Hammer" mentioned above.
