Imperial Knight - Armigers in manufactorum pt.2 - BIG BUILD TO DONE!

Afternoon #WarHamFam and #WarhammerCommunity I've been #buildingWarhammer on my Imperial Knight Armigers. They've been built for a while now and had quite a lot of progress with the painting. So much so I've found it quite the challenge to fit in WiP pics.

Anyway, I love this pose so much. I even got round to adding some 2mm hemisphere gems to it's armour plates [not pictured]. This will give it the look of Heresy era marines, with their 'bonded stud' armour.

It's not the best implementation [when you see it] but it'll do for now and add some further uniqueness to the model. I obviously have to clean up some mould lines too! 😱

The second one is also done. Despite my excitement at achieving the running pose I'm not 100% convinced I got it right.

Also, it flexes a lot. I'm sure I pinned it in places but part of my thinks I should have pinned it more judiciously.

I'd also planned to add more embellishments. A terminator tilting shield, more leftover banners from my Wraithlord and some spare armour plates on the Chain Cleaver. 

Some close-ups of the reposed legs. They might be useful for those wishing to do the same.

And the clumsy but functional greenstuff on the hip joints again. Hopefully, obscured when I paint it black. But again it's useful to have a close-up for those that want to copy, or let's say 'improve'' 😉

And here we have another Bloody Great Big Bloody BIG BUILD Stamp of Bloody BUILD Approval

    1. Cheers, the more I do them the more I want of them. I do have a couple of Sentinels and an Invictus War Suit, maybe they will scratch that itch instead? Not to mention these aren't even finished...

  2. Love the dynamic poses, I have six Armigers now and the poses are quite limited.

    1. Thanks, I don't think I have a single one in the standard box pose. Maybe next time...?

    2. Even having a braced pose - with two back legs, would be quite cool, especially for the Helverins. As I'm cutting the legs up anyway it wouldn't be too hard to end up with two front legs to play around with.
