Luckily I still had the Renegade box set lying around so I thought, paint an Imperial Knight that should be fine. Lets just say that in October I spent two weekends at Warhammer World and a third weekend at a family get together, leaving me one weekend and any time I could grab during the week before work to get this built and painted.
I built the main chassis and then magnetised the weapon mounts so I can add the other weapons when I get chance. For some reason I decided to paint it red and black so went for House Raven in the end. I tweeted a couple of in progress shots as i didn't really get time to get a blog post together, one of the things I love about Twitter is it's nice and easy to update and engage on the go, and is definitely my platform of choice for sharing and engaging with the community.
I think it has turned out ok, my camera isn't great so it hasn't picked up the highlights very well, but overall i'm happy with how it turned out. The basing is a combination of both my Space Wolves and Iron Warrior armies so I can ally it in to each of them and it will still look a coherent force.
Next year, i'm going to make sure I have more time for this so I can take the time to enjoy the challenge a bit more and be a bit more active in the whole community element of the event, especially seeing what a grand job Joe has done with the community.
Time to get back to working on my Iron Warriors, Dreadtober has been a good painting break and i'm looking forward to painting more of the legion, with my Iron Havocs up next.
