Commutatus: Knight Titan - Conversion Tertia

Another thrilling update in the ongoing saga of the dreadknight titan conversion. I removed the hydraulics on the shoulders and added covering plates. I also bulked out the chainsword arms slightly by adding the ammo boxes from an assault cannon.
Just to break up the monotony of these titan posts, here is a pic of some robed marines sporting parts from the new PAGK kit. The knight on the left has a new storm bolter arm while the other marine has a new psycannon. These guys are part of the core of my GK strike force squads and are meant to be quick to convert and quick to paint. Ultimately, I am targeting four squads of ten, so to keep my attention span from flagging too much I went with the robed marines as being far simpler to paint. These guys will get a little more detail in terms of touch-up and shading but they don't get the same TLC that my metal GKT and PAGK (Purifiers) get.
And finally, a quick size comparison between the marines and the knight titan. As you can see, it is feasible that a grey knight without power armor could be piloting the titan... although he would be a bit cramped!

Loving the red robed marines... reminds me of my Jawa-marine mess. http://www.outsydergaming.com/2010/08/better-than-jawaballs.html

Thanks Josh... I think ;)

Definitely intended as a compliment! Your painting skills appear to surpass mine by a healthy margin. Keep up the good work.

The Titan reminds me of something... ah, yes, Fester Addams of "The Addams Family" fame. Yes, the comparison is insane, but hard not to make it when it's holding two chainblades in a pose reminiscent of, well, glee.
