Imperial Knight

Faction / House: Hawkshroud Chapter: Imperial Fists

Manufacturer: Games Workshop

(Videos of LEDs in Comments Section) We bought this knight sometime 2017 and managed to pick at it for awhile, but just got everything figured out that I could finally magnetize, paint and solder the LED connections. All weapons, body and base is magnetized, LED fixtures all from scratch and are hooked up to a switch and 9v battery. One of the bodies of the guns has a separate micro switch and battery fold to easily switch out the front and side portions of the Rapid-fire battle cannon and the Thermal Cannon. Modified a few things by drilling out barrels, carapace vents and exhausts eyes, chain to the banner and so on to give more cool lighting effects. LEDs are placed in the eyes, carapace vents, exhaust vents on back and carapace top, under chest piece, under shoulder armor and a 2 piece LED weapon switch out. Mediums used a mixture of spray primers, army painter, alclad, citadel, tamiya and hand pastels. Sanded acrylic rods also put into exhaust and barrels and weapons to increase brightness in lights, but forgot to put one in the Thermal Cannon. The base is made from cork board, various grits of sand and rock, chocolate hot glue and a lighter ( so I have more control of the pooling and add burn effect to the ‘mud’. The bubbles I just made with blobs of hot glue as well. (Next time I am using UV resin.) I will probably go back and redo some pieces or add more paint, some areas I did loose pieces sadly and forgot to finish some back detail but I’m calling it quits for now xD I’m tired xD
