Got my first Knight Titan finished! What a fun model. Lots of areas I was able to completely load up on heraldry. I decided to go with house Hawkshroud. They are all about noble houses that pledge themselves to causes.

In the fluff it talked to extended campaigns where they're assigned. I figure this could be the tie into my Knights Angelus color scheme (and dark angels icons). So I redid their normal yellow colors in a similar scheme as my imperial force.

One thing I changed up a bit from the normal knight heraldry was the placement of the divisions on shoulder pads. I have the campaign/house stuff on the right side and the personal heraldry of the knight on the left. It appears that in the books they go front/back vs. left/right. I like mine better, but it means that I'll have a hard time using the imperial knight transfers since they're set up for the GW method.

I had a blast going with multiple decals. It looks like heraldry overload, but I wanted that Bretonian look. I spent extra time with Micro Sol and Micro Set to get the decals smooth. In addition I worked up ard coat below and above the decal. Then put a coat of matte coat over the top. Anything red/white/black was a satin finish. Golds were done in gloss ard coat.

The base was a dragon forge design with my etching of the dark angels symbol. I added in some grass and fake leafs.

I really, really enjoyed this kit. It took me awhile as I figured out the best method to paint it up. Painting multiples will be a bit daunting but I'm going to jump right in. I may go back and clean up or extra detail certain parts, but for now it seems to work.

Cheers,
BC

Nicely Done.

How many are you planning on putting together?

Probably 3. That way I can always field them as a primary detachment. Although the thought of painting 2 more sounds exhausting!

Ive made two myself, these models are a pleasure to build. engineered very well.
and they look awsome.
and yes its very easy to go nuts on the decals, i had to use a lot of self control on my first one. my second has very few.
nice job on the paint!
