The Great Big Chaos Knight Build: Part One (Box Opening and Plans)
The kit is surprisingly compact, with everything you need on three sprues. I've opted for the standard one; it was £10 cheaper, and I don't need the other options anyway, as I cannot use them.
The armour panels are huge, and will be great spaces to either create some freehand painted designs, or sculpt more intricate details.
The colour scheme will be a drastic change from both the Thousand Sons and the Vraksians: it will be white. I wanted a scheme that is clearly not affiliated with one Legion (much akin to how Imperial Knights generally are), but made it clear that it was a Tzeentch titan. I recently got into playing video games again, and this gave me the scheme I was longing for. I picked up a copy of the original Bayoneta (Think Devil May Cry but with witches and more pole-dancing)
In the first fight I faced some low-level Angels (above), which looked uncannily familiar to Lords of Change . They also sported a white and Turquoise scheme, which I immediately liked. This, I decided, would be my scheme...
With the scheme sorted out, I can now start planning out the build. I'll be using the Forge World kit as inspiration, as well as the Tzeentch daemon range. The weapons will be magnetised so I can switch between the Warden and Paladin. I may end up canibalising my Forge Fiend for bits, as there is a good selection of items I can use: namely the Exhausts and back panel)
