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
