These squads of Grey Knights have been a real challenge, since a lot of stuff is magnetized. The original weapon choice was halberds, but with 6th edition now here, who knows how that will change!
Here are some pictures showing a few of the options:
Getting the banner to be magnetized to the same arm as the regular halberd was very difficult! That thing is so much heavier than the halberd. I also had to change the arm angles on most of these to make that happen.
Here is a group shot:
And some WIP images:
It is now time to get around to the Necropolis Knights! I probably won't be using these in a game until I can expand the unit to six, but I have been wanting to see what they look like with some color on them!
First I began by drawing out the basic design:
Then setting down the basic colors:
It was time to start shading the snakes lighter, using the same color scheme that I did on the Stalkers:
I continue to lighten the snakes, working up to the same brightness level of the stalkers:
Once I had the shading complete, it was time to create the scale patterns from the Stalkers:
I proceed with the pattern, and I begin to paint the skull design as well...
More shading on the skull, and getting some color into the eyes. The rest of the usual demon faces and skulls are started in the marble areas...
Now I focus more on the faces in the marble sections:
The demon faces and skulls are almost complete, and more colors are added to the main skull design.
At this point I go back into the small skulls and demon faces to reclaim the darkest colors:
Once the darks are re established, I put the glowing elements in, and work the crown of the skull design.
Here we have the bases ready to go!
