Does my mech look big in this?
At the risk of completely eating up the collective good will of people who appreciate my Imperial Knight force, I wanted to show some pictures I took of my completed Knights of Corbenic for the Titan Owner's Club.
Regular visitors to my blog will have seen these knights before, but I thought it would be nice to see them all collected together now that the knight part of the project has drawn to a close. 'The knight part?' I hear you say... Well, even though I've completed the knights and their scion pilots, I still have the household auxiliaries left to finish off and have added a few pictures at the end to give you an idea of what's still to come!
I've posted each knight on its own and with its scion pilot plus a couple of extra images - enjoy!

|This picture was taken after I'd worked out the main forms including muscle groups and skin folds
|I smoothed out the skin so I'd have a nice clean surface to detail after his first firing
|In this picture you can see that I have tried out some detailing on the first hand - I was quite pleased with the pores and veins. I also started trying out the crystal geode spines on the back
|The crystals were fired in advance and only placed temporarily so I could see how they would look and helped me estimate the gap I would need for the rider
|Behold the Dankhold Trogg King! He is slightly larger than a normal Trogg Boss and I played around a little with his features to make him look a little more intelligent than a normal Dankhold Troggoth
|The next stage will be to complete the second leg, add arms, feet and details such as fungal growths
|The heraldic symbol of Legio Metalica 'The Iron Skulls'
|The full seal which is about 10" long!
And for those of you who wish to recite the canticle of the Iron Brotherhood, the binary on the seal translates as follows:
We are wrought by
the furnaces of Metalica
We are born of
fire, devotion and honour
We crush the
enemies of mankind
We are bastions of
We bring death,
hope and obeisance
We walk for the
glory of the Omnissiah
We are the Brotherhood of Iron
