My Russell my son and his family bought me the Renegades imperial knight set from GW for my birthday, I decided to take my time and enjoy the kit slowly constructing then painting it to my pleasure. I watched the wonderful on line videos from GW on how to paint it. Inspired i set about clearing my desk, it took maybe 4 hours to construct and I did not stick it all in one, but left the under skeleton to paint then add the armour when finished.. After painting the metal Skeleton slowly with washes and then high lights I set about the plates, very slowly painting to my idea of what I wanted a Mechanicus Alled Knight for my Sons of Hourus army in 30k. I would lay the painting our to probably another 5 hours at least. then the base was set and terrain to fit the rest of my army. I found the transfer sheet for the decals was not the one in the single sets and I called GW to ask if the bigger set was available, the nice lady said she had on in the office and sent it me free of charge as they realised people liked the bigger set. What can i say back to real service from GW witch was a surprise if a nice one!, I looked for what I wanted the decals to be in place and slowly added them on top of a gloss varnish then sealed with a silk. the paints were GW and Foundry on all parts.
I finished it off touching up small bits I noticed.I would say on time taken perhaps 12 hours + .
I am delighted with the end result and what a great kit and model to use in any game. (another one is yet to be built and again I wish to take my time and enjoy the kit)
