Knight Paladin 'Vultus Mors' - Part 2

I had time to get a bit more work done on Vultus Mors yesterday, and it was nice enough to grab some pictures this afternoon:

 

I was able to get all the Burnished Gold trim blocked in, though it still needs the Shining Gold highlights. I also added a banner to the Battlecannon arm and roughed in the hazard stripes on the Chainsword.

 
I experimented with Devlan Mud for the first time on the Boltgun Metal and I really liked how it turned out. The banner was printed out on thin cardstock and glued to a small plasticard tube before being pinned to the barrel.

 

It's time to start working on all the smaller details - scrollwork, iconography and such. Once that's done there will need to be another highlighting stage, and then I can attack the base. I'm pretty happy with how it's coming along so far, though I'm still undecided what I'm going to do for icons on the green parts of the heraldry. I'm torn between the stylized "T" of the titan legions and something with a bit of 'old world' feel to hearken back to the knightly orders fluff. I'm open to suggestions!

wow thats looking great. Why not look up medevil knights and crusade iconography for some ideas for the details on the banners.

Indeed - that is the way I'm leaning. I have a number of old WHFB Empire and Brettonian waterslide transfers that I'm sorting through for interesting iconography. Perhaps some rampant lions or Fleur-de-lis would be appropriate! I was trying to hearken back to the fantasy knight heraldry with the quartered green and white/black stripes...
