Somewhat inspired by This Post on Magpie and Old Lead, I dug out some very old Imperial Knight models from epic and gave them a repaint.
They date from around 1990, when Oldhammer was beginning to enter the fabled Red Period. Back then, I would have thought that they looked stupid, and they do look a bit silly, but they've got a certain wacky charm. Looking back through old White Dwarfs, I find the brightness of the epic titans very appealing, with their complicated heraldry and inevitable chequered armour panels. And after all, if you are a thirty-metre robot, camouflage probably doesn't help you very much. You might as well go all-in.
Anyhow, I painted a knight lancer and a paladin. I particularly like the lancer, with its lanky legs and ridiculous WW1 helmet. I painted them in bright colours to match my titan. I've read somewhere that shading up the armour plates gives a feeling of size, so I've tried to do that here.
Here's the titan. I did it a while back, and it needs some more work, but it fits the other titans.
