Imperial Knights - Vassal Knights of Legio Astorum - Cerastus Castigator 'Heretics Bane'

Hello All, thanks for dropping by. I've added to my Knight Banner - the Vassal Knights of Legio Astorum ranks have now swelled with the addition of a Cerastus Knight from Forge World, a Castigator. Meet Sir Geraint riding Cerastus Castigator 'Heretics Bane'.
This was an eBay purchase, the previous owner had done a decent job, I just brightened up the blue panels leaving weathering in the recesses, painted a few red panels back to blue, re-did some trim, added detailing like dials and LEDs and painted some cables, pistons etc.
The groin power couplings were missing so I added some cables from a Necron Night Scythe kit in the ports between leg and groin. I added some slate to the base and repainted the base to match my own forces, and added some tufts.
I added the Legio Astorum decals and the Aquila details to the shins, the cheques were done already I just did some tidying up and repainted the white panels Astorum yellow.
The barrels were painted black and some blue power effects were added to the Sword.
Another Legio Astorum decal finishes off the transformation from perhaps Terryn, to Vassal Knights of Legio Astorum. A nice addition to the Knights force, now quite a few Knight Engines!

Cheers, Siph.


  1. Great results; and a fine looking engine!

  2. When they first came out with the Lancer I always hoped for one with a big gatling gun, but wasn't patient enough and got the Lancer. Lo the Castigator came to be. Sadly I'd probably want the Acheron instead now, that Flame Cannon is immense.

    The decals work really well, you've done a brilliant job of hiding them as decals. I also like the chevron's round the access panels, hope that's your idea not the previous owner, clever regardless.

    1. Thanks mate, previous owner gets the credit, however the Decals were me, Microsol and then sealed with ‘Ardcoat before the all over Lacquer Varnish, giving the painted on look.

      I have a Lancer in the to-do pile...

  3. I like that. Very nice.


For the Emperor! (and other Xenos welcome...)
