So I have been in a hobby slump lately, it happens to us all, but I finally got out of it and painted up an Imperial Knight on a lazy sunday, with another night of transfers and details. Was a lot of fun messing with masking tape and my airbrush, and it has my hobby mojo back. Here is "Argentus"

TWO DAYS! You did that in (less than) TWO DAYS?

I stand in awe. It would take me at least a week of lazy Sundays to paint that, and I would never reach that standard.

Good to have you back with us. I expect you to keep on impressing us. :)

Wow, two days, thats really impressive.
I´am building on my knight for month´s....

Your painting is really solid, but for my taste the blue and white looks to "new" for a machine of war. I would do some wheatering on your model.
Than you will have spent 3 days in total. still something for the book of records 8-)

Thanks guys! I was really happy with the speed it all came together. I thought long and hard about weathering, but I asked my friend (the knights owner) and he wanted it shiny and fresh. I imagine a small army of peons probably scrub it down and fix the paint after each engagement! Some brown sponge weathering would've done the trick though I agree!

Really nice work Nuke. I love the double wide chevrons on the carapace, it makes a really neat effect.
