Well, for long I wanted to make an imperial knight to play with my Dark Angels. I didn't wanted him to be green because one of the reason I wanted a knight was the possibility to paint something different.

I've imagined a free knight, meeting the DA during their secret quest and joining them while they tried to hide him the real purposes of their mission...

Needed to find a convenient scheme then...

And then came the bad news....

Like everybody here, I felt sad to see Brother Argos leaving... I'm on this board since 2004 and this website has taken an important part in my hobbyist's life. Learning that one of its pillar (and what pillar!) was leaving made me feel bad...

So to exorcise this and make a little tribute (though still microscopic when comparing to Argos' dedication), I've decided to named my Knight Argos and paint him with the famous red/black/white scheme.

Here's the WIP, hope you like it

The base colors :

That is a fitting tribute if I have ever seen one; and I'm sure it will be an absolute feast for the eyes once it is done.

Very nice work so far! A fitting tribute indeed! thumbsup.gif

Once, a Novice Cantus came to me, troubled and uncertain. A slip of a girl, only a few strides down the eternal path leading her to the Golden Throne. She asked me a question. She asked me how we can ever truly understand what faith is. I told her that there is no coin to measure what we feel in our hearts. There are no scales upon which we might weigh the faith of one woman against another. There is only duty and blood. There are only deeds and words. There is only the service to the God-Emperor, and the price that demands from each Sister can only be known by Him. But know that whatever fears must be faced, whatever hardships endured, that price is forever worth its full cost.

Dope! Great freehand. That scheme works really well on a Knight, actually.

Glad you like it all.

The works goes very fast. I've decided to change the shoulder pads color organization so that the left is black in the front and the right is red.

The top armour and the shoulder pads are not glued yet.

It really is shaping up to be a thing of beauty; my one complaint really is that, in my opinion, the barrel on the melta weapon is too dark and blends in with the gun.  Have you given any consideration to making it more of a heat stained brass color?

Well, I've taken my inspiration from the GW treatment of the melta weapon.

I recognize they may have used a copper color to make it lighter... But I like the really carbon effect of the cannon, looking like it has shot lots of times. :P

I'm not totally convinced by the black. I've tried to do the lining with a lighter grey but didn't look good. If you have any tips, fell free to share.

Looking very good so far.  I especially like the freehand B&C badges and the paint scheme.  The Reaper Chainsword looks very striking in that color.

And now among everything else, now Argos has to check under his bed for tentacles every night.  You sick Slaaneshi bugger.

I know right?  I'm sorta surprised just how well it fits the model.

I would consider switching the magnets around, bud. You can see the big ones peeking out under the feet, but I bet the smaller ones would do nicely.

Wow, truly great work and a fitting tribute to Argos. You did a bang-up job presenting the color scheme- I can't think of a way to improve it actually. Great weathering, too.
