Warhammer 40,000 - Big stompy robots with huge guns. Love ‘em or hate ‘em Imperial Knights are here to stay. Most of the Knight commissions I’ve done have be a unique color scheme that doesn’t line up with any of the Houses. Most of them have also been magnetized extensively. From a cost perspective this tends to make more sense to most players. The unique scheme allows them to play any house or freeblade combination they’d like without their opponent hassling them about the color scheme. While the magnets let them change up loadouts on a whim. When you pay $150 or so for a model you tend to want to get the most bang for your buck.
The flip side of that are players that pick a house and load-out and stick with it. These players tend to see the knight as its own character with a backstory and history. This latest project is probably a little of the later. My client got a great deal on a painted knight and wants me to match the scheme for this Crusader.
