This Knight was painted by our team-mate Benathai, who was asked to add some ghostly parts emerging from the surface of the model. They were supposed to represent some kind of a possession of the Knight.


Some people asked what bits were used to create this effect and it was some Nagash leftover parts, but mainly bits from the Spirit Hosts models.

If you want to see more photos, the remaining pictures can be seen here:


That's the first time I am posting here this way (thanks to the help of our mods), so please bear with me and if there's anyting wrong (too much pics, too heavy, etc.) let me know, please. :)

Well done! I like the way the purple fades into the armour giving it a backglow effect. Plus, I always say too much is not enough, but I do like the balance of "just enough" pieces to make the point, but not enough to drown the rest of the figure.

I really like everything about this piece, although I would prefer the effects to be a crackling energy shield and not ghosts( I don't like to mix supernatural elements with my science fiction stuff ;)..)
That bit of personal preference aside, it is wonderful workmanship!
