STORM WARDENS OF BARODA

Aside from the obvious coolness factor of collecting a knight household, the draw for me was twofold. Firstly the fantastic palette of house makabius and secondly the association of their banners with both Legio Mortis and the Death Guard, two traitor forces I already had in my collection. Being able to field a number of Knights alongside Mortarion’s already resilient Legionaries was too good to resist.

ALL THE METAL

The biggest challenge with a plastic kit the size of a knight is dealing with the sub-assemblies and intricacy when painting. Personally I found these the most enjoyable and relaxing kits to build and paint as they gave me an opportunity to really play around with different metal tones and textures via airbrush, paint brush and sponge. I kept the majority of the armour components also separate so I could paint and weather them off the knight’s chassis, the benefit of this approach being I didn’t need to worry about metallic paint contaminating any of the external surfaces. Similar to my heresy legions combat and environmental weathering using oils, pigments and acrylics featured strongly in telling the story.
