I really like the terminator conversions, very nice use of the grey knight models and some of the ther conversions are very nice ideas too.

from a painting point of view, the white needs a bit of work, i don't know if you paint it just pure white or not.
i tend to do it is space wolf grey basecoat, a thinned down blue wash in the recesses, a 50/50 space wolf grey and white mix over most of the area (apply a couple of thinned coats to get a more even finish) then pure white highlight on the edges. it should help ith a bit more contrast on the white areas and stop them looking quite as flat.

the reds are quite nice, but maybe use purple/blue wash to shade them a little and then edge highlight with blood red and maybe even a very thin final highlight of blazing orange.

the silver is looking nice aswell.

all in all a very good and solid start to the army, its just some areas of the models look like they need a bit more definition to make them 'pop' a bit moe and have more visual impact.
keep on with them as they are looking very good so far and my comments are only suggestions, i would be more than happy to see them line up against me on the battlefield

Wow, kinda spooky.

I am currently working on the same color scheme after I got the idea from a history channel segment on the knights templar, in fact almost exactly the same scheme. :down:

Anyway great work and how about just Templar Knights for the name? I know simple. :woot:

Thanks for the coments guys.

stinkenheim Thank you for the tips on the painting, But I feel I'm a lil to far along now to go back an start changing things. But you do have a valid point, one I kinda already knew before. And i will definatly try going down hat road in the future.

centurion That's cool. I look forward to seeing what you do :) And I had thought about Templar Knights ages ago, but dismised it. And i cant for the life of me think why I did :cuss Sounds as good a name for them as any. Although, will you be using it?

I'll be takin some better shots this weekend hopefully.

I'm still trying to work on the white bits, having a bit of trouble. :( As for the name, If it sounds good to you then use it. Its just a name thrown out there and I'm not really into that whole propriety thing when it comes to DIY stuff. This is ,after all, a hobby . ;)
Looking forward to the pics.

Greetings Citizens. (Or denizens)

Sorry its taken me so long to update this thread. But here we go. Finally decided on Knights Templar as the name thanks to Centurion. :P
I had intended on making an apoc size force, but I've gotten very bored and frustraited of my colour scheme. So I've decided to take a break from them and start another project or two. So this is my army to date.

I have the back ground fluff in my head. but havent writen anything down yet. They are intended to be a Crusading chapter similar to Black Templars.

My commander Cain Tiberious Kondrad (Based on the Commander Cullen of the Red Scorpions model from Forge World)

The whole force as it stands.

I think thats everything I have built an painted for this chapter at the moment. I do have a Landraider Redeemer, Rhino, Shooty Terminator Squad and a couple Chaplins in progress which I will finish and add.

My plan was to build another
3 Tac Squads
Regular Command Squad
1 Assauly Squad
1 Devestator Squad
1 more Vindicator
Landraider Crusader
Ares pattern Landraider
2 more "counts as" bike squads Knights
A "counts as" Mounted Khan
A "counts as" Vulcan
6/7 More Rhino's
2-4 Razorbacks
2nd Shooty Terminator Squad
4 more Dreadnaughts (2 regular, 2 ironclad)
2nd Vanguard Squad, but with JPs
Sternguard Squad

Plus some home made vehicles.

I may still do these in the future. But no promises at this point.

I know i'm far from the best painter/sculpter on here, but C&C is always welcome. I will say though, I Know the white needs work, more high lights and bolters need drilling etc, lol. (really wish I hadn't started metalics)

EDIT: Added the force pic.

(really wish I hadn't started metalics) How would you paint them then?

Well I started them 2 years ago nearly. And back then I'd never even heard of B&C. But since coming on here I have seen lots of Non Metalic Metalics. Using grays and washes etc. If I was starting them now, I'd try going down that route. Because high lighting I found very difficult on these models an in the end I just gave up on that.

EDIT: Sorry for the poor quality pics. I'm not the best photographer.

I like the depiction of Templars on heavy destriers. Very nice painting, they look like medieval knights out of a storybook :)

@ Belm Be my guest Bud. You are the second person I heard plans to do something similar. Look forward to seeing what you do ^_^

@ Terminatorinhell Yeah, I got that Champion off Ebay just a couple months ago, even its original Blister. I did have one when they first came out. Just wish I'd held onto it.

Very nice, loving the cavalry, erhm, bikes... ;)

The entire army really has it's "soul" down right, and it always warms my heart to see a well executed fluff/theme idea.

Good work!

Thanks for the kind comments friends, they are very much appreciated :huh:

And for those of you who are doing similar themes, or have gained inspiration for this thread, I very very much look forward to seeing what you do :)

On a side note..
Something I hear alot when people see my Cavalry is, "How would they support the weight of the Marine?" Or. "You should make the horse have bionics" etc etc. An while noone has mentioned anything like this here, I have seen it mentioned on another persons thread. But something most people do find interesting is, I actually used the legs from the Chaos Knights models. ok I made them a lil more like Space Marine legs. But the size is original. Not only that. But if you compare the Chaos Knight (minus his mount of cause) model next to a space marine model, the Chaos Knight is actually BIGGER. ;)

Now that you said you used chaos knights, I am duly amazed, how much sanding and filing did you have to do? The legs themselves are really well sculpted too :huh:
