This has been sat almost-built and I painted waiting to be finished off for months!
These are the House Liagaun colours I came up with when I invented the household. They seem to have worked pretty well across the range of model sizes so far.
So that’s a pair complete, better get on with the bigger knights at some point…
So after the Castellan Knight Castigaitor, I bought a pair of Warglaives and set about building and converting them. I’m quite please with how this came out so will get the second one finished at some point soon.
I’m still worn on the House Liagaun Heraldry but the pair of facing dragons was chosen to be suitably in-keeping with the rest of the 19th Company.
The emerging spikes were made from a combination of whittled cocktail sticks and horns out of the Citadel skull collection box.
I used some cork for the base to represent larger chunks of stone.
The model has full articulation including the waist and upper body. I’ll take some pics of the method used for the waist when I do the second model.
Had a few thoughts about the stripe pattern on these but am quite pleased with how it turned out. In front profile, there’s not too much colour on show.
After finishing the initial Chaos Knight, I’d felt the need to expand House Liagaun and add in some additional war machines.
The Cerastus Knight-Castigator is a solid looking unit, so I’d been on the look out for one for a while. With a bit of work this one has now joined the ranks.
I’d wanted to make it look a bit more chaotic so added various extra arrows onto the armour plates.
Added some spikes to the carapace armour too.
House Liagaun scarlet and amber stripes with house heraldry and some kill markings.
Black and Blue panels tie into the Night Lords.
Added some extra detail to the head.
Liagaun is a Celtic word meaning stone. House Liagaun is a traitorous cohort of former imperial knights who are not only renegades in the eyes of the false emperor, but are swayed by the forces of chaos.
They stand with the 19th Company of the Knight Lords bringing heavy support to campaigns.
House colours are black, midnight blue and a cross hatch of scarlet and amber.
