Fallen Knight Paragon

Know now only as "Sir Ketamine" Odo de Gatton was once a full member of the Inner House Knights on the feudal world of Esperence who worshiped the "sky warriors" as the perfect chivalric ideal. He was recruted into an off world mercenary army and eventually saw the "sky warriors" in the form of the Flesh Tearers space marines on Gideon IV. However, far from being inspired by the them he was driven into a spiral of depression and substance abuse by their brutal actions.

De Gatton has recently been seen in the retinue of Inquisitor Klein. What the inquisitor wants with a drug addict is anyone's guess.

The knight only took a few nights to paint and I'm much happier with him now that he's got some colour. I particularly pleased with the armour and the patina that I was able to get on it by using Windsor & Newton Nut Brown ink. It's just the right kind of grimy. I feel like I'm starting to get a handle on this "grim dark" thing. :-)


  1. You most certainly have the feel for this grimdark thing!

    Very nice!

  2. The knight is sweet! Love the integration of tech and antiquity. Almost a shame I can''t see the haunted face your character would possess. Imagining it makes it that much more powerful. The bright heraldic trappings topping his helm off sell the better days that contrast his mostly drab wardrobe. Fantastic figure.

    1. Thanks. It's nice to know that you get the feeling from him that I was going for.
