Imperial Knights: House Cadmus

Just a quick update to share the House Cadmus hunting pack I've just completed for a friend's birthday (3 months late!). I've recently re-vamped my airbrush setup with a new compressor and a switch to a new Iwata airbrush for detail work, so this was a good test run.

Using basically the same techniques as in the previous Imperial Knights 1, 2 and 3 posts, but with a different color scheme from House Griffith (they're still waiting their turn for completion!), and some finishing touches - decals, basing, barrel burn and some final airbrush shading. Not much weathering on these guys - they've been recently tuned up and are ready for a night on the town.

The bases from the Genestealer Cults Kill Team looked good so I copied the same style here. At the last minute, I decided to add some fun on the Knights' base. I chopped up some chaos space marine bits, molded some green stuff, and gave the whole thing some quick details and gore wash. Gives a fresh kill look to these two hunters, the remains of some poor Khorne bastard turned to hot slag.

Enjoy the hunting!

Big Brother and Little Armiger Helverin

A look at some of the barrel burn / muzzle burn effects. Really adds a meaningful touch I think.

Poor bastard....

 King of the hill. Note some of the post-decal airbrush highlights on the imperial eagle decals on the shin plates and the shoulder plates.

The Armiger Helverin's guns are devastating on the table. A fresh shoulder badge to denote he's in support of the infamous 301st Cadian Mechanized company.

The Knight's helmet is removable, and all weapon options are magnetized. The torsos are also magnetized for easier packing & travel. Plus it's just fun to turn him around to face the next kill head on (sound effects always encouraged).

  1. Absolutely love the green colour scheme with yellow and black accents. The base is sweet too.
