Retained Knights - Part One

These three 15mm "The Ion Age" miniatures come from the Prydian Army range selection IAF008 Retained Knight Post Charlie and have been based upon a "Battlefront Miniatures" stand.

As with their less armoured Muster patrol brethren, I think these miniatures have something of a "Rogue Trader" feel to them, and as a result felt it would therefore be appropriate to paint them in the colours of the Space Marine Chapter that adorned the cover of the first "Warhammer 40K" rulebook, the Crimson Fists.
 
The models were therefore initially undercoated with "Vallejo" Heavy Blue before being washed with "Citadel" Nuln Oil". Their hands were then picked out with "Vallejo" Heavy Red, before these areas were treated to a glaze of "Citadel" Bloodletter. Finally the models' Angis rifles were simply painted using the "Citadel" combination of Boltgun Metal with Nuln Oil.
 Despite being slightly distracted with these excellent Retained Knights, I'm still working on several of the Prydian Muster Infantrymen.
