I wrapped this guy up around New Years, but have been procrastinating putting up pictures and bragging about how well he turned out. No longer! Here goes:
Acquired: October 24th, 2015
Completed: January 2, 2016
Time Elapsed: 70 Days
Behold! Sir Winston of House Hawkshroud!
I’m absolutely over-the-moon with how Sir Winston turned out. His arms are magnetized, so his weaponry is fully customizable. I imagine his most frequent layout will include both the battlecannon and the avenger cannon (because BRRRT) but that Reaper Chainsword is really hard to say no to.
Really what Sir Winston does for my Imperial forces is give me an absolute battering ram to kick the door down. He’s more mobile than a leman Russ, with more than twice the firepower.
One thing I need to work on though is when to charge him into something that’s bound to be certain death. Last game I played he was torn to shreds by 2 warbosses and a Nob with Powerklaws. It was my hope that his explosion (AWAY from my lines) would take out more than his stomps could, but that didn’t work out to be the case.
I’ve mentioned before, I hate doing bases. This base was completed on commission by the Four Realms of Chaos, a local studio to Markham Ontario. They do some really awesome things over there, and I fully recommend them for your commission painting needs. It really took the pressure off, that wide open iKnight base was intimidating for me to look at.
Anyways. Sir Winston: Oathsworn to Baal, is ready to stomp some heretics.
