I was saving the Chaos Knights for last. Mainly because I couldn't find all the bits to the knights. I do have the newer plastic models as a back up, but wanted the older ones. So I painted the other parts of the army while continuing to search my basement hoard for the missing bits.
I finally broke down and bought a lot off ebay. It had the missing bits and plus some others goodies. So now I have at least 3 maybe 4 generations of Chaos Knights.
Please feel free to correct me, I know the combined wisdom of the OWAC is far greater than mine:
1st Generation - metal knight, metal horse.
2nd Generation - metal knight, plastic horse body, metal head
3rd Generation - plastic body of knight, metal arm, plastic horse
4th Generation - plastic knight, plastic horse.
So with all the pieces in order I finally painted the April entry. I give you my 2nd generation Chaos Knights.
Some Clarifications. I can't paint freehand symbols worth a damn. So I will either order decals for a Chaos symbol or I will have my friend Lou freehand them. The gold trim seems much brighter on the horses now that they are done. I might go back and dull it down with some Nuln Oil. I might also repaint the horse armor to match the knights. Later, much later. I have 700 other projects I set aside for this, not to mention lots of house upkeep.
Army pics coming in a day or so, Cheers!
