Up tonight for What's On Your Table is an Imperial Knight from Tristan, who has put a tremendous amount of detail and lore into his creation.
As for my Imperial Knight in progress much better pics and detailed pics will be put on the blog sometimes early on 2015. A little bit background for this guy now,
I have mostly painted Ultramarines for a long time now and I felt eager to paint Space marines in other color pattern. As such, I have decided to paint a small
compagny of "Calth's Scorpions". This newly found Chapter, on a request of Marneus Calgar, has the important duty to operate as a reinforced defensive force on
Calth to protect the very valuable shipyards under the ice surface. To support the newly and small chapter, another request was sent to the Adeptus Mechanicus
to create or relocate a willing household of Imperial Knights. Household "Lanoth" responded the call as their homeworld became lost due to highly toxic contamination.
Choosing the Calth's local fauna scorpion as a symbol of resilience for their new coat of arms and repainting their hull with their new colours, household Lanoth is
now located on Calth. Marneus Calgar's request was approved not only due to his martial prowess but mainly to reinforce a critical sector of the Segmentum
Ultima. Ultramar region constitute a highly militarized region of the Segmentum and a crucial strategical asset for the Imperium. Now facing the severe threats of
Tyranids invasion, Tau expansion and the ever more baleful Black crusade, it was of upper importance to reinforce the whole sector with Elite forces.
This is Imperial Knight "Telos" of House hold "Lanoth". It bears the symbol of the household an Ice scorpion, one of the rare specie to survive the nuclear
bombardment of Calth surface and symbolize the resilience of all Calth inhabitants and survivors or the World Bearers treachery during the Horus Heresy. On his
tabard is a representation of Calth itself and the Veridian system (at least a part of it :)). I'm planning on adding more details on the back of the tabard with the
association of the Ultramarines and Calth's Scorpions. This is the first Imperial Knight of the household. Please check my other WIP and work on my blog. Sorry
for my limited English.
Thanks a lot.
