This weekend I blitzed the robots and got them all painted. It was a pretty simple process once I’d decided on a paint scheme and set up a “factory line”.

First, I undercoated all the models with black. Then, I base coated them with a mix of Scab Red and Deneb Stone: mixing a bit of Deneb Stone (which is a “foundation” paint) in with the red increases its opacity gives it better coverage.

One this was dry, I painted Coat d’arms Slate Grey onto the base, then I painted details in Boltgun Metal and Coat d’arms Brass. Then they were all given a coat of Devlan Mud – including the base. Once this was dry, I drybrushed the base Deneb Stone.

Here are some photos of the robots laid out on my city board: the bases are intended to match the boards. The robots have support from a few titans of the Legio Pantera:

Sweet work Jodrell,

I know you mentioned about a newer "admech" look with lots of red and gold but those knights and robots would look good with the old school titans painted as Legion Ignatum Titans - red with yellow/black details.

Speaking of which I found a good fluff source the other day whilst looking for colours for my own knights here:

I'm considering painting the House Hyperion colours for the main force because it looks pretty quick to paint but we'll see.

Keep up the good work.

You're probably right (and I love the background material you found) but my titan legion's colour scheme has been set for about fifteen years - not about to change it now!

Here’s the first of Thom’s chevaliers painted in the same colour scheme I tried out on the test knight. Looks pretty good I think.

I just have to paint all the rest now!

Great paint scheme and a very useful guide to how you painted your Knights.
Thanks for sharing!

I asked CS to move this topic as I think I'd like to make it my TOEG project!

The robots are about 3,000 NetEpic points so that's me sorted until August :-) Actually, I plan to get at least six knights painted each month.

I’ve now finished painting the Baron HQ unit for the Knight army, and the first squadron of Paladins. Here’s the Baron:

Here he is from various directions:

Here are the Paladins:
