Heresy Era Mechanicum - Khenti-Amentiu, Freeblade Knight build continues

Just a quick hit this morning - Managed to get a little more build time in on the Knight, and have been fiddling around with potential posing options. Also put a name to the beast, Khenti-Amentiu, Freeblade Knight and Guardian of the Tombs of Cynopolis on the Forge World of Zhao Arkkad.


Added magnets at the torso and neck, and have been twisting the various pieces this way and that to see what works. I think I'm leaning towards the pose shown above, gazing over the top of the blade in a taciturn guardian look. Still quite a ways to go on the build of course but rather digging the jackal head and khopesh blade add-ons!

That just looks awesome. I love the head and Blade. I can't wait to see that guy finished.

Joel working on a knight, can't get much better! Love the conversion work already!

Nick Thrower said...

That's looking awesome, the head in particular really gives it a nicely different vibe!

Supreme work as always :) Where did you get those poseable legs from?

@Kevin Spyrle: Thanks! It's coming along nicely. :)

@Greg Hess: Haha! It's been a long time since I did any knights, been fun to work on so far!

@Nick Thrower: Cheers!

@30k plus 40k: Thanks! I got the legs from a seller on ebay, under the title "warstrider pattern posable legs".

Cheers, everyone!

The additions look brilliant.

I expect to see it finished by tomorrow ;0)

Todd Sherman said...

Nice man! Wow that's looking cool, cant wait to see some color on it!

Mark said...

The new add-ons are really awesome. Are you going to customize the shoulder and leg armor with egyptian motif green stuff sculpts, too? The Tomb Kings range had some nice inspiration for armor detailing.

Now all those tzeenchy bits just make it look awesome! Great job so far man :)

Sweet bits really give it character.

Agis said...

I like the add-ons..., look like high quality. Are they 3D prints or casts? I also like the pose-able legs, make it much easier to get some character out of the kit. Might I suggest that you do some blue-yellow horizontal chevrons on the shoulders, like the head dress of a pharaoh and make the head in ebony? that would look radical...

Looking awesome, I like the lean forward pose as well, very mean stance!

Dai said...

O yes mate, that looks well good! Stance is menacing, new bits are dead cool - perfect addition for your 1k Sons.

@Riot ville: Thanks! Hoping to get the build finished over the weekend!

@Todd Sherman: Cheers, man!

@Mark: Thanks! I have a couple more bits in mind, the rest will be paint and transfers for the theme I think...

@NafNaf: I appreciate it!

@Siph_Horridus: Thanks very much!

@Agis: Cheers! The head and khopesh are Shapeways 3d prints, and the legs are resincast. Good call on the chevrons - Thinking some blue/yellow sunrays. Been considering either ebony or gold for the head, or perhaps a little of both.

@Bronislaw Czevak: Thanks man!

@Dai: Thanks! I know I had to have 'em as soon as I saw 'em!

I appreciate all the kind words everyone! Cheers!
