Mechanicum Questoris Knight Styrix

Hello everyone,

I'm back with a short post just to update you on my current progress. So there has now been a bit of an unexpected change in direction from me, as my dad has asked me to build and paint him a Questoris Knight Styrix for his birthday! Now its a step into the unknown for me as I haven't worked on any mechanicum models or any knights yet so hopefully it will go well!

I've decided to go for a paint scheme that can be linked to my Iron Hands so that in the future if I did want to use the model in a game I can borrow it off of him! The scheme is the one from the pictures below which is featured on a Questoris Knight Magaera and a Cerastus Knight-Lancer.

I like this scheme because I think it should be quite achievable for me without an airbrush and I think the red, black and white will fit nicely with the Iron Hands.

I am however, undecided as yet whether I will use any Iron Hands iconography as I could potentially also use it for my blood angels in the future too.

In terms of progress made, I have finished the wash and prep process for the resin parts of the knight and I have begun to assemble the plastic parts as you can see below. I'm not a big fan of the building side of things so I'm glad there are more plastic parts to work with than forgeworld resin lol. I will also give you a look at the paint scheme I am going to use once I have finalised it.

Hopefully I will have made more progress on this and will have it assembled by tomorrow night :). It is a bit of a daunting project for me but I will keep you updated as things progress! I hope you're all enjoying your sunday!

Thanks again,

Avienus Kaane


  1. Yea! I love Knights! I look forward to seeing this built!

    Best of all, CHOOM!!!

    1. Yeah it'll have plenty of choom haha. I need to decide how I want o do the effect on the weapon

    2. I have the FW heat bloom guide for the choomer if you want it?

    3. Ooo yeah that would be great thanks drake :)

  2. Ha I know how you feel with forge world resin.
    My made me help him do his death corps and when he gave them to me all the arms were just tossed in a container. I had to match the right arms to the correct left arms.
    He also wanted me to build him 2 imperial Knights.

    1. Haha yeah I don't think my dad realises how much time it will take to complete the model!

  3. Can`t wait to see it done!
    I think, its one of the most gorgeous Knights.
