My first Astral Knights combat squad was very plain in terms of the models used as I was testing out the paint job more than anything else. As I was very happy with the way they turned out, I have decided to have a go at making the second combat quad a bit more unique, using modelling as well as the paint job to make them stand out from vanilla marines.
Here is my first attempt. This guy uses bits from the Dark Angels Vets boxed set to make him look like an experienced Astral Knight who has lots of battle honours and iconography on his armour and equipment. Note the swords on his bolter, backpack and shoulder pad.
So what do people think? Is it going to make a difference when painted up?
More to come as well so keep an eye out for the rest of the squad.....
