In my great build stuff campaign, I found these in the Relic Knights models, a couple of four legged robots that will be good as sentry or scanner bots.
I will not bother basing these as they would actually need 50mm bases, their legs are just too wide for 40mm bases.
This is a mech from the Relic Knights range, a nice looking model with quite an imposing main weapon. It needed to be straightened a bit in boiling water and it seems to be good.
The pilot is not really what I would put on top, I will see if I can find something a bit more suitable.
Here we have the H.E.L. Cannon for the Leviathan Crusader, a very big gun indeed that is about the height of an Imperial Knight.
I am working on some homebrew 40K rules for the Crusader, to run it as an Imperial Knight variant, based on a Forge World profile. This weapon will likely be a Volcano Cannon, hopefully enough to deal with a Chaos Knight.
In the great build something campaign of the last six weeks, I went back tothe Relic Knights models from CMON. These were made from a terrible “restic” resin plastic hybrid of some description that was awful to work with, hence the reason they all got put in The Loft Full Of Lead.
Trimming mould lines was a real pain, using a file did not work, the best way was to use a new scapel blade and carefully trim the lines off.
The finished model is quiet fun, somewhat different to the usual wargaming models. I want to see if I can get this range into a Rogue Stars game or something similar.
The is indeed a very big gun, but not the biggest that a Leviathan Crusader can carry.
The next weapon build will be the H.E.L. Cannon. That looks like it will be the height of an Imperial Knight.
This is a very big box of bits, the Dreamforge Leviathan Crusader.
I bought this model years ago as I thought it would go with my Grey Knights really well, the helmet design is a perfect match for later generation Grey Knight Terminators.
It is quite a complicated kit and it got put on a shelf to collect dust for a while. And I do mean a while.
I also had no idea how to go about painting it. As it is a fully articulated model, I thought I should paint each component before building, something that would take some time to do. This is another reason it has sat around for ages.
But now that I am playing 40K again and models the size of Imperial Knights actually have decent rules and I have an airbrush, I am building the damn thing.
So starting with the feet, I am working my way up the model. By the time I got to the top of the leg, I realised this will be considerably taller than an Imperial Knight. I think I will need a homebrew 40K profile for this model, something that is in between a Knight and a Titan.
