Adeptus Mechanicus - Blight Wheel Prometheus Knight Titan build

Today has been my first real day off since the Christmas holiday, and I thought I'd get some build time in! A couple days ago a package arrived from Blight Wheel Miniatures bearing their new Prometheus Knight Titan, and I spent some time getting everything trimmed, cleaned up and washed off.


I've been a long time fan of BigDaddy's work, and own several of his previous iterations of Knight Titans, and I have to say that they just keep getting better. This new kit has tons of great detail and is an incredibly crisp and detailed cast.


I started off by gluing up a few CDs to make a base, and built up the legs and torso. The kit allows for a great range of motion and posability, which I really appreciated. The kit also comes with a great looking power fist and thermic cannon, which I magnetized to allow for easier storage and potential swapping of weapon options in the future.



The whole kit went together like a dream, and it really has a sense of weight and purpose. Definitely looking forward to getting stuck in painting it!

That's a cool looking model. I went tho their website, but they're sold out of it. How much did it cost?

Could you post a pic comparing this one to his earlier ones? I own two, and unfortunately he stopped making those before I could buy the other three I wanted. I'd like to see how the size differs.

Looking good, but why haven't you painted it yet ;-)

Thanks very much everyone! I got stuck in with the base color last night and will take a couple more pics in progress with the other knights for scale today. From what I understand they only made a few for sale on the website and the rest they took to Salute, but I would imagine any unsold stock will make it to the site, and I understand they'll be casting more in the future. I'll tell you, I'm certainly planning on picking up two or three more!

How tall is it compared to something like a dreadknight or riptide?

Mordian7th said...

It stands just shy of 7" tall at the top of the carapace, and just shy of 8" to the top of the engine stacks. That's a 120mm base it's standing on, so it's pretty big! None of my regular opponents run Tau or GK so unfortunately I don't have access to either for a comparative pic...

MasterSlowPoke said...

Gotcha. Sounds like it's midway between a warhound and a dreadknight then.
