|Some AT18 painting - another Cerastus Knight Lancer and a new carapace weapon for a Reaver Titan.|
The Cerastus Knight is one of the newer models GW have released for their Adeptus Titanicus re-boot ("AT18"). When it comes to the "fluff" of the story, the Knights are not of great interest to me, but the models are really lovely and the Knights can play an important role in the game. This specific Knight will join two I painted earlier this year to form a full-strength banner of Cerastus Lancers.
|This may shock you...|
|I can't say enough about the excellent decal sheets GW has released for AT18. They are very nice, and really help finish a model, especially the Knights, which are often sporting heraldry of their various "houses".|
|The Ion Shield, which is capable of delivering a short-range "shock blast".|
|The shock lance...another short-range weapon, but can be very deadly on the table if the Knight is in the right position...|
Warp Missile Rack
GW's support for AT18 has been hit-and-miss, but they are gradually releasing a greater variety of weapons for the Titans in the game. Selecting different weapons load-outs for your Titans was always a fun aspect of the original Adeptus Titanicus game - and while the new Reaver kits at least have a touch of variety in their weapon loadouts, Forge World has augmented the choice out there (for a price, of course) by releasing Warp Missile Racks designed to fit the carapace weapon mount on Reaver Titans.
|A one-shot deal, mounted in the carapace mount of a Legio Gryphonicus Reaver Titan.|
|Another view of the Warp Missile Rack. The missile itself can be removed to show it has been fired (and presumably has caused trouble for the Warmaster's minions...).|
|Reaver Titan and Cerastus Lancer banner - you can see the Cerastus Knights are pretty tall for Knights (it's all relative in the grim darkness of the far future).|
