As the resin dries after the scrubbing I figured I could post here pictures of my Alt. Knight Honeste vivendo as I build it.

As all figures start, let’s start with the base.

After looking at all the standard bases offered on the net I wasn’t happy, I wanted something special.

And I found it. The Ruined Rhino base on ThingiVerse.

After printing it and letting it cool (About 8 hours later) I was read to paint... but before that I had to smooth it. When working with PLA (I went it instead of Resin to save on weight) there are two ways to truly smooth it.
1: Auto primer
2: Or a heat gun on low.

I decided on the heat gun due to the fact it was supposed to look destroyed so a little melting wouldn’t hurt...

As you can see the front of the Rhino and roadway came out pretty well, the rocks and top of the Rhino not so much.

I primed it with Army Painter army green and started painting. I went with mechanis grey for the stripe and tracks, XV-88 for the mud and ultrasmurf blue for the road light. The hawk head is from Martillo Y Cola on Shapeways with a little rustolum white primer/paint.

Sadly I forgot to take a pre quickshade picture but I’m happy how it came out. After painting the rocks and in roadway cracks I painted the roadway with watered down XV-88 and wiped it off with a paper towel giving it a dirty look. I then used the paper towel to give a rub to the Rhino to give it a more dirty look too. After the paint had dried I gave it a good coat of Army painter quick shade.

And now let’s turn to the Knight, Sadly I just received it today and I haven’t had much time to work on it. here it is on my welding bench.

It looks fairly good, only a few mold lines. Although strangely it arrived without arms... While I’m dealing with that it doesn’t mean I can’t keep working on the body and posing the body right? So I’m afraid this will be all for now, until next time.

I like the base and I'm intrigued to see what happens with the knight, is it the same size as the GW one?

I've had a couple orders from Puppetswar and have found the quality to be pretty high but fairly slow to ship. In fairness, I live a third of the way around the planet so that's to be expected. I didn't have issues with missing parts, though, so I hope it gets resolved to your satisfaction.

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

.

Not sure yet, this would be my personal first Knight and until I take to my game store I can’t judge it. Plus it depends on how I pose it.

... I must have forgotten or repressed the horrors of me helping my dad paint his Imperial Fists... But after about what feels 20 coats of yellow later here’s the armor!

After using a black primer (My main mistake but I wanted a darker yellow)I began layering Averland Yellow and Lamenters shade. After about 10 layers I was finally happy, admittedly it’s a little more mustard-ly then I thought it would be but it works. I had thought about doing the body yellow but... Nah...

Also I’ve heard back from PW, they say the arms should be in the mail by Tuesday! So I should be getting them by Friday after next!

Due to a three day weekend this week I got this Knight mostly done!
After priming it white I then airbrushed a metallic silver on followed by a light coating of quickshade to darken the metallic.

As you can I did some white on the raised bits to give it some flair.

Sadly this is the last I will be able to do until I receive my arms hopefully within the next two weeks.

Well I have an answer for you, according to the tape measure from the bottom of the base to the top of the hump is 7 inches exactly.

Thanks for the response about the size, you're off to a great start with the paint, yellow is tough and yours looks great, especially for such a large model.

So while I’m still impatiently waiting for my arms here’s a few more pictures with all the body’s armor and the head on.

And just a note for anyone else who wants one is you’re going to have to glue the waist down because the only way I’m keeping it upright for the pictures is some green stuff.

My arms arrived Friday and thanks to the US holiday today I managed to finish my work!

Now I just need to... wait some more for the missile pods to arrive and I would say he’s done!

The Knight is coming along well. His overall design reminds me of the VF-1 Valkyrie from 'Super Dimension Fortress Macross' (anyone else get that vibe?), but the colors remind me of Bumblebee in Michael Bay's 'Transformers'.

...Yeah I can see it...

https://vignette.wik...=20131206180019

I admit, I thought about painting him like bumblebee but I wasn’t sure if he would look too dark after I used the metallic paint but now I think I could have gotten away with it.
