So, I finally threw down the cash for one of these monsters. Thing is, I could give a grot's ass about the 'Houses'. I could honestly care less about the 'Freeblade' decals.

I was thinking of making a 'marble' armor pattern on the plates, trimmed with a gold/bronze color, and putting some 'ardcoat over it to make it shine.

What do you think?

Anyone have experience with 'marble' technique? I'd appreciate any tips you have.

Dude, that sounds awesome. Do you have a technique already set? I know a bunch of people have put good marble tutorials for green/black marbling up either in the tutorial section or their Project logs. Pretty sure buried in mine is a tutorial on brown/tan marbling as well... but I can't remember where, honestly.
Gonna go with Ubshanti Bone as the primary color. Never done this before.

I also decided not to care about houses... my Knights are bonded to my Titan Legio, so no need for house iconography when you are part of the Mechanicus' tithe!
Mine is just following around some Black Templars, Oathsworn I suppose?

I want it to be more 'pearly' and 'white' than 'old'. Basically, I want my Knight to look like an old European Religious Antique got up and went out to murder people.

Somewhat off topic, I always found this odd. "I could care less." That means you care a great deal and that it is possible for you to care less than you do.
Why do Americans say this? It's essentially the opposite of what they mean.

The Brits, Aussies and Canadians all say, "I couldn't care less", which makes far more sense because it suggests that your level of caring is so low, it couldn't possible get any lower.

I have a tendency to use the wrong word, usually one similar or sounding the same.

It's even worse when I say, "I'd like a hamburger are a hot dog."

And realize it two days later and secretly want to poison everyone who witnessed it.
