Secretly, I'm still planning a Chaos conversion. I dare my friends to tell me I can't use it... (*hopes his bluffs work on someone*)...
Friends are supposed to be enablers, not limiters. If your friends tell you that you can't do something, they aren't really your friends.

boobs. that is all.

So I jumped the gun and got the knight for cheap! As in dirt cheap! 26.5 pounds UK. I am pretty sure its a recast but I saw the photos of the sprue and the quality looks perfect.

Jeez, a recast already? I suppose time is money. Anyway, I hope the quality is good, if it is a recast. Grats on getting a knight!

If it isn't in plastic then it's a recast for sure.

So it's definitely a recast, I did not get any transfer sheets, nor assembly guide. Still for 26.5 pounds it's a steal!!
It looks like its made of plastic but I don't have any resin models so I can not say for sure. The quality is great though, I couldn't find any miscasts. Nothing is bent and all details are clear.

Now i just need to figure out how to put it together :3

*EDIT* So attaching pic from phone does not work with tapatalk.

Did you buy it from ebay/kraigslist(british version) or back alley/truck and also test plastic glue on the frame. I got a large number of ebay sellers that kept/sold separately the transfers/guide.
