We have had the honor of working on a dazzling set of Imperial Knights, consisting of a Knight Valiant, a Knight Errant and 6 Armigers. This magnificent mechanical force has been painted in the House Griffith color scheme. The main color is an off-white, complemented with panels divided into red and blue halves. Bronze trim further enriches the overall design.
As for the lighting effects, we have created a striking orange OSL effect in the engine and lens areas, and added assorted iconography on the various armor plates. To give them a realistic look, we have applied subtle wear marks on their armor and burn effects on all firing weapons and smokestacks.
The level of painting and decoration of the bases throughout the project is Ornate level. We have set the bases in a ruined city, depicting the Knights advancing heroically through the rubble. To achieve this effect, we used 3D printed elements and a lot of powder (pigments) of different shades that simulate collapsed brick and concrete walls.
Our client dreamed of a dynamic and eye-catching assembly, so we spent time coming up with exciting and heroic poses for each miniature. The result is a set of Imperial Knights that captures the essence of the 41st Millennium and the imposing nature of these colossal Lords of War.
We are proud of the result and hope that our client enjoys his army as much as we did creating it.

I love the House Griffith Imperial Knights.
Our client discovered our work and was captivated by the quality and detail in our miniatures. After years of consuming Warhammer lore, he decided it was time to have his own army and contacted us to commission a very special project: to create a set of Imperial Knights of House Griffith.
He shared with us his admiration for House Griffith, highlighting their preference for close combat and their iconic white, red and cyan color scheme. He wanted us to capture the imposing nature of these giant, newly repaired Warlords before the first battle of a new campaign. In addition, he asked us for a dynamic, attention-grabbing setup.
He was also open to our suggestions for bases, confident in our ability to do this project justice. With his vision in mind and his confidence in our talent, we were excited to embark on this challenge and bring his dream of having an Imperial Knight army to life.

Arming the Griffith House
The most exciting thing was working on the poses and the dynamic set-up of the Imperial Knights. We spent a lot of time coming up with different compositions until we found those that were eye-catching and heroic. Once the first sample Armiger was painted, we sent him videos to get his feedback before proceeding with the rest of the IK’s.
As for the bases, we focused on creating a dusty and ruined city environment, using 3D printed elements and pigments of different shades to simulate rubble and collapsed walls.
Throughout the process, we shared daily progress photos with our client to keep him informed about the progress of the project. We recreated lighting effects and meticulously ornamented all the armor plates with various iconography. In the end, we achieved a set of Imperial Knights that not only captures the imposing nature of these war machines, but also reflects our client’s desire for a unique and eye-catching army.

Every step of the way the team was updating me on the status of the army and asking about how to better make my rather broad dream a reality.
