I was originally going to suggest you finally start painting the darn thing, but then you go and add another layer of detail that adds to the model's background and narrative -- damn you! ;)

 

Seriously, though: It's clear that you want this to be special, and it shows. I'll still say it's important to not miss that sweet spot where the conversion is really finished and start the painting process -- trust me, I regularly end up with models that stay unpainted for years while I tweak and fiddle on them, and yet to actually take something to the finishing line can be such a rewarding feeling ;)

 

Anyway, always looking forward to seeing the big guy, so keep this coming! :)

I agree with Kraut! I'd have probably called this done a while ago, but you keep making cool additions! Can't wait to see this thing painted up and ready for war!

Haha, I'd not shown many photos of the legs as they where a bit of a mess of part conversion and bit's of rough greenstuff. And with all the work into the torso I can't go leaving the leg armour stock, it was pointed out earlier that I needed to make sure that the legs didn't look to small compared to the additional bulk of the torso as well. The frist work on the right leg managed this just fine and beyond some blending I've not changed the thigh and am jut cleaing up the ankles and toes. The left leg needed to be more mechanical so the new thigh shield adds the bulk and is now finished, this afternoon I;m going to mix a little batch and work on the shine and Knee plates.

The problem with going to town on half the model is that any area that you don't is going to look out of place. I made a bit of a rod for my own back with this especially as the other full Daemon Knights will have to have the same care and attention if they are going to stand out. I do intend to hold back on the non daemonic Knights. If I can finish the build of the body this week I may get the arms done next, that way I'll be looking at pilots for some of the others while of over the holidays.
