Default Building of a Knight Paladin



The cockpit isn't actually glued together, since I want to paint the interior first. But it sits nicely enough. I intend to put a Land Raider power plant on the back of the main body once the funds become available to get one. I'd like to add something to the end of the knight battle cannon as well.

Looks awesome, I think the gun is too long though, I suggest slicing ad the first bevel mark.

yes very good indeed!

though the teeth on the chain blade wotchamacallit seem too big to me - they are bigger than the space at the 'wrist' would allow for the teeth to pass through

I had thought about that with the teeth. But unfortunately couldn't come up with a solution except to say that the teeth don't actually 'chainsaw' around. They move at high speeds back and forth, and up and down, in their own space.

Chainblade teeth adjusted. I realize there is a gap between the blade and the motor, and that will be filled in once I'm happy with the blade itself.

~laughs~ Thanks for the laugh Vash.. yeah... fortunately for me I had a number of the bits sitting around in my bits box already unused. Namely the cannon, the bike wheel wells and the dreadnought arms. So the only things I really needed to get new was a Defiler kit, a Sentinel kit and the other little odds and ends. I should have a LR power plant in route to truly finish it off, assuming it'll fit like I think it will (if I doesn't, then it goes to my RT Land Raider, ala Blaine).

But yeah... if I ever wanted to make a 2nd one the cost would be rather prohibitive all things considered.

I like it, going to try my hand at a bunch of chaos knights once i get this be damned cast off.I like your design. I think it would look good if you filled the gap between the cockpit and the defiler torso.

Trust is a dagger, the hilt as sharp as the blade.
