Default Grey Knights

Hello,
These are a sideline to my Marines Malevolent and Sons of Heracles.
They will be fighting alongside my other Marines purging Chaos on Planet Athos.






Still plenty to do to finish them!
C&C as always welcome!

I always loved the Grey Knight's models, they just always looked so good to me! I love the silver and gold that you've done, but the red looks a bit flat by comparison.

I usually have my Grey Knights brighter, but that is personal preference. That being said, I really like the darker metals that you have on yours. But, as Ddraig Cymry says, the red looks a little flat.

I am curious what made you decide to do the sword hilts red instead of the traditional gold?

Thanks!
Basing.....looking at tieing them in with my Son's of Heracles and Marines Malevolent so as they are fighting on the old home world of the Sons of Heracles they will be based partially on Old Greek style ruins and wasteland bases.

I think they look nice, but as Dakingofchaos said, it would definitely be good if you based them. I like that idea of old Greek style.

I'm not sure you have enough marine armies there mate

As has been said the metallics are very nicely done, i'm also a big fan of that dark blue shade you've used for the wiring - it plays off really nicely against the silver.
