Wraithknight WIP

Thursday, August 21, 2014

I finally got around to building my wraithknight, a much needed tough unit to ally with my other armies.

I'm still deciding whether or not to evil it up to tie it in with my DE. The arms, torso, and head aren't glued as I would like to add magnets to make it easier to transport. I've pretty much settled on this pose with raised heavy wraithcannons taking aim:

I left most of the armor plates off until after I get them painted to make things easier. Overall, really cool model and a fun kit to assemble. I got him built just in time for my first official 1850 point games of 7th edition, and he did just what I needed him to do -- eat tons of shooting and kill the things my primary army struggles with (wave serpents and riptides). I'll get into more details next time on how the wraithknight fared in a list I recently tried at a local RTT this past weekend. Cheers!


  1. I really like the pose you went with. If only you could make him wink with that lean back.

    1. Thanks Eric, and great suggestion! I'll see what I can do when I get to painting his face. It would certainly take the model up a notch!

    2. "Heeeeeeeey!"
      "Is that a lance through your chest, or are you just happy to see me?"
