Welcome to week four of the Jewel of July challenge. As expected, I was able to finish off the Cerastus Knight-Castigator. It stands proud, leading my growing collection of House Taranis knights. I have five more built and primed waiting forlornly for more paint. For now, I'll be content to put the big seal o' DONE on this model.
After applying a good coat of lacquer to the whole model, I brushed on some weathering powders soaked in pigment fixer. When that was dry, I dropped a little water effects in the deepest craters and holes on the base. I don't use water effects much, so I decided this base offered a good opportunity to give 'em a go.
Otherwise, the decals were finished and additional highlights added prior to the coat of lacquer going on. Here is how the Knight-Castigator turned out. I'm pleased with the result. I do favor a cleaner look than some, but I think the knight still stands tall and proud regardless of its lack of weathering and battle damage.
Ready to bring the Omnissiah's Justice to Heretic and Xenos alike.
The big guns never tire...
A good shot of the 10 - 20 seconds of ammo available for the bullet hose.
Crackling power sword ready to cleave something in two...
So that puts and end to the Jewel of July challenge for me. I hope everyone isn't now burnt out on Knight-Castigator WIP picks. Moving on, I'll start painting Dark Angels - either 30k or some new 40k Primaris. I'm torn as I have the backlog of 30K models built, primed and ready - but I also got my Indomitus box and so have some really great new 40k Primaris to paint in Dark Angels livery.
I also have two Legio Ignatum Warhound Titans for Adeptus Titanicus waiting for some paint. I do love painting tiny titans.
You'll have to check back next week to see what I move forward, I'm afraid.
Stay safe out there.
Cheers and Happy Gaming!
