I hadn’t actually planned this purchase of some Imperial Knights for Adeptus Titanicus. As part of a prize draw I had to top up my purchases to get past £50, so rather than buy more paint, I looked to see what models I could buy. So when browsing what to get, I thought, why not get some tiny Titans, well the big titans for Adeptus Titanicus aren’t exactly cheap, so I decided that I would go for a box of knights. This box was just £17 (after discount) so I thought, yes, that takes me over £50 and I get some tiny knights as well.
Acting as scouts for the Titans of the Adeptus Titanicus, Imperial Knights support their titan legions with speed and agility granted to them by their small stature.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble 3 Imperial Knights for use in games of Adeptus Titanicus. Each of these machines is armed with a reaper chainsword, with a thermal cannon, rapid fire battlecannon, avenger gatling cannon and 3 heavy stubbers available (1 of which can be optionally replaced with a meltagun.) These are highly detailed miniatures which, though at the scale used to play Adeptus Titanicus, are as impressive to behold as their larger brethren – thick armour plating, a curved carapace, exposed hydraulics and visible engine blocks/exhausts are hallmarks of the kit, with each also featuring its own tilting plate.
Within the box is a single sprue with the parts for the three Imperial Knights.
You also get three 40mm bases, transfers and instructions.
Having had these in the cupboard for a while and now having purchased the Precept Maniple Battleforce a few weeks back, decided I would construct and paint these.
They are quite fiddly and delicate models to make. I took a methodical approach to building them, in an attempt to get them all constructed.
I did find some of the parts didn’t fit together as easily as I thought they should, but once you worked out they fitted together it was a good fit.
Here are the finished models.
Next stage will be their bases and then undercoating.
