in the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king

Ever since I saw Clarence Harrison and Dave Taylor’s modern T-Rex Warden I knew I wanted one of my own..

…but as you’ve probably figured out by now. I ain’t doing no loyalists! So let’s try to break this down shall we.

Name
I knew from the start that I wanted to merge the helbrute I had with a knight and use the plasticard star for centering in the rider aka the one-eye. The whole land of the blind is a faith issue and the one-eyed king views the loyalists as blind in their faith in the Corpse-Emperor. Figuratively I also did represent this with the blinded knight head.

Warden or…
For me it was always obvious that the Crusader was the obvious ruleset for the T-Rex Warden. So I’m playing this as a Crusader with the battlecannon upgrade. This’ll allow me to field all 4 knights at 1500 points. The only thing I don’t have the points for is the carapace mounted rocket launcher.

If anything comes close the heavy stubber and flamer deals with them.

The compact weapon systems are exceedingly powerful and doesn’t hold back to their modern counterpart.

Conclusion
Well for me the knights project has been a ton of fun and this is a very fitting end to it all don’t you think 🙂

    Very nice – like how you’ve tilted the knight chassis over to create something very different to the original. Good use of the helbrute parts as well. And seriously how fast have you worked on these, I’m hurtling towards the one year anniversary of working on my knight and so far I’ve only got a pair of legs!

    • Cheers mate 🙂 I feel that even when it comes to the t-rex pattern that I’ve made something uniquely mine.
      It’s been a blast working on them. The kit is just that good 🙂

    Every knight you post gets better than the previous! Great work on the warden and the helbrute face in the middle is perfect

  4. This looks great, the squat warden was always my favourite of the knights, that turkey looking one with the long legs second. I love the daemon spewing from the middle of the carapace. Nice work all round red.
