Grey Knight

Wow, this blog is dusty!

Seems that real life caught up with me and I have hardly been doing any hobbying lately. I have to say, I've missed it. I got a few 6th edition games in and I have to say, I have really enjoyed the dynamic and fun they have put into it.
But after playing a game with proxies for Grey Knights, I figured I should get some painted up!

For my Grey Knights I did not want to have shiny metal warriors with a hint of blue on them. I wanted to have them be darker and more gritty. Because my Eldar use teals, tans/whites as well for most of their forces, I wanted something more dark and shaded. Here are some shots of my first model.

For the power weapon I wanted a subtle way of working with it, so I went with a suggestion from Ron over at FTW that he had gotten from a friend. (Thanks Ron!) As well, I did a few light layers of drybrushing to give it a nice glow. The grays are darker and I mentioned them here for an earlier posting. 

This being my first space marine, I can say it was a nice change of pace and a bit of fun to work with the model. Hopefully more will be making their way onto here soon!
