Hey everyone,

just a quick update for today, and a plea for your support: In time for the weekend, let us all give a fellow hobbyist a bit of a leg up! So what is this about?

If you have been reading the posts about my recent Knight-related work, you have probably picked up on the fact that I consider JeffTibbetts’ Imperial Knight conversion – dubbed “The Queen Bee” – one of the best, if not the best, Knight model around:

Although not quite finished yet, the model is a gorgeous piece of work, and one I have been borrowing a massive bunch of ideas from when painting my own converted Imperial Knight.

Now mobile game developer Pixel Toys has announced a game called “Freeblade”, that will allow you to play customisable Imperial Knights, and Jeff seems to be dead-set on making his Queen Bee appear in that game as an unlockable skin. So he has launched a bit of a campaign for that, and I would encourage you all to support him in his endeavour! Jeff’s a great guy and a superb hobbyist, and I owe him a great debt of honour for stealing so many ideas from him, so head over to his blog, read his post on the matter and support his little campaign, please! Thanks in advance!

So, anyway, that is all for today. I’ll be returning to my own WIP Knight now. Have a great weekend, everyone!

As always, thanks for looking and stay tuned for more!

  1. Wow, K-Sci. Thanks so much for this post. Again, I count you amongst her inner circle of supporters, having provided me with so much feedback and support over the last, what, year and a half of work. It’s really fun to see the outpouring of support on my proposed plan. Here’s to hoping the devs take notice and step up. Remember, you can share on Facebook or even right on their website. I posted the links on my blog.

  2. It’d be amazing if we could get Queen Bee in the game πŸ™‚

    I will support getting the Queen Bee in there if you’ll get your own knight on his petition.

    • That’s also something I’m pursuing, but keep in mind the game is based around loyalists as far as I’m aware. I’ll talk to them and see if they’re open to the idea.

      • Yeah, I think Jeff is right on the money here: A Chaos Knight, and a customised one, at that, seems to be beyond the scope of the game, in all fairness. Still we can always dream… πŸ˜‰

        @ InqMikaelovich: You should still support the Queen Bee, regardless πŸ˜‰

  5. […] the biggest splash, my friends from across the world rallied to her cause. Kraut Scientist even dedicated a blog post to the Queen on his very popular website, Khorne’s Eternal Hunt. Members of the Bolter & Chainsword […]
