It's mainly aquarium sand (which is clean, very fine and dirt cheap) with some model railway gravel (a couple of different sizes), sawdust and flock mixed in. I made up a big tub of it which will last me for years.

They're looking real nice, Haven't seen Knight models before good work. Nice tip about mxing foundation paint might solve my issues with a couple of colours

You might find that the new GW "base" paints would be better, as they are basically foundation paints (ie lots of pigment) but there is a wider range of colours. Mixing a little bit in with a more translucent paint will make it more opaque.

Here’s the first of nine Knights Castellan. These are heavy-support knights which mount a Quake Cannon (normally carried by Titans) and autocannons. They’re slow but heavily armoured.

Image

The brass areas were painted using Vallejo brass rather than the Coat d’Arms that I’ve used on previous models (I seem to have picked several pots from a bad batch, so I’m waiting for them to be restocked). The Vallejo paint is much shinier so I toned it down with some Scab Red. The difference between the two colours is visible, but not so much as to ruin the consistency of the paint scheme between models.

I’ve been sorting out some mechanised firepower to support the Knights and Robots. I’ve just finished stripping, reassembling and basing these:

Image
Ordinatus Golgotha

The Ordinatus Golgotha has a fearsome reputation as an anti-Ork unit: any Ork unit that’s even targeted by one of the six missiles has to take a morale check (which is 5+ for Orks) making it highly effective at breaking large Ork companies.

I am planning to scratch-build at least one other Ordinatus using miniatures from Brigade Model’s Neo-Soviet range.

Image
Stormblade

Stormblades are Titan and Super-heavy hunters. They mount a Plasma Blastgun which is normally carried by titans, as well as a number of specialist and one-shot weapons. I have a couple more coming from eBay to form a Stormblade Company.

Image
Deathstrike Missile Launchers

These are also basically tank-mounted titan weapons. You can pick any of the one-shot titan missiles to mount on each model.

Image
Leman Russ Tank Company

The mainstay of any Imperial army!

This is the first time I’ve based vehicles and I am starting to think it’s a good idea!

I have an original Ordinatus Golgotha model which I love using, but I wanted to expand my collection. Unfortunately I don’t have £100 spare so I decided to kitbash one using some Neo-Soviet tanks from Brigade Models as the chassis.

Nice work on the Ordinatus. Is there an equally inspiring plan for all the kick-ass marmot turrets ?

I might have some Ordinatus Armageddon cannons laying around, cough cough, if that sort of thing interests you.
