If there is an army I will never get tired of painting, it’s Imperial Knights. There is just something about an army comprised of only five models.
Imperial Knights, and their chaos flavored kind, armies are always a blast to paint.
As these were a commission, the scheme was not really up to me. However, I really like the color James wanted. It also allowed me to paint a classic Canis Rex, something I hadn’t done before.
You can understand the struggle it was when he said he didn’t want the bases done.
So I compromised between what James wanted, and what my obnoxious wittiness dictated I do. I wrote dumb things on them, hoping he’d get a kick out of it.
He liked the sass.
Canis Rex is painted in a typical Canis Rex fashion, with a scheme similar to the box art.
The only minor tweaks are to make sure it fits next to the other robots. This means roughly that the black frame is painted like the black on the other knights.
The same goes for gold and silver. This way, the princep doesn’t look too out of place next to the green robots, despite being a totally different scheme.
Every weapon on the army is magnetized, so you get a whole lot of variants with arms and carapace weapons.
