Hey all, today I’m showcasing the relatively new Kytan Daemon Engine of Khorne by Forge World.
It’s quite a large model standing at ten inches tall and certainly dwarfs a Imperial Knight. The kit itself is fairly complex to assemble as you have a lot ways you can pose the model, and in doing so you have to cut pistons to hold the legs into place. I heard a few people call this model chicken legs, but the legs are actually very bulky in relation to the relation to the rest of the model.
To paint I used mainly Comm Art airbrush paints and Tamiya for the metallics. I also used Rub n’ Buff for the golds to highlight them. Rub n’ Buff is a product used mainly for decorating and repairing antique frames. Overall as with all Forge World kits I’m a big fan of what they did and can’t wait to get my hands on the new Chaos Knight they put out last week. I left the images large so you can open them in a new window.
It's really easy to do. I airbrushed Vallejo air Dark Earth over a black base coat. Then carefully airbrushed Vallejo air White at a downward angle. I then applied a wash of GW Agrax Earth mixed with Black. Once dried I dry brushed GW white lightly over the skulls.
Thank you so much, I'll be sure to try that way out!
Why did you put the hips on backwards?
I just preferred the way it looked that way.
Beautiful work, love it. Can we have a comparison shot next to an Imp Knight pls?
I'll try and take a photo comparison tomorrow in the daytime and add it below.
As ever your work is an inspiration. I'd love to hear more about the gold technique you used – perhaps a tutorial? Do you have plans for the other half of your Lord of Skulls?

What's your recipe for those grey hue skulls? Every time I try to replicate a similar scheme it never comes out looking anywhere near as good as that!
