So today I though I'd try to bring everyone up to speed before delving into a long winded tutorial.
Now when I first built the knight pose some time ago (all the way back in October 2015) the intention was to have it running with arm back ready to punch something into oblivion.
However things have clearly evolved since then and thanks in part to stability and the sheer quantity of greenstuff and conversion work that has evolved over the last 20 months and a fair amount of feedback over at Bolter and Chainsword I've clearly had a rethink. Don't get me wrong I love the running pose and will definitely revisit it on a future knight (maybe around 2030).
So having scoured Ebay for a cheep and rough wraithknight I made the decision to do a full re-pose.
Round the front the bones where encourages together to finish off a pelvis more suitable for upright walking
which to me definitely has the beginnings of more interesting and suitable decorations.
Now there is still a lot of work to be done but next week I'm off again on work trips (Falmouth this time) and hope to get some evenings to work on this along with some other bits, at the least I'll make sure the box is in a prominent place to really nag me into some progress. I'm really exited about 8th ed and can't wait to arrange some games but for that I really should get a solid base for a force worked out and my first knight of the black ruin should do the trick nicely.
So until my next ramble and with my inconsistent posting schedule who knows when that will be? TTFN
