Imperial Knight....sort of

I've decided to add an Imperial Knight to Imperial Guard army.  I'm doing this mostly because I like the concept and at Mechanicon I had an opportunity to watch a guy play with one and it added some tactical flexibility that I think is important in this new 40K era.

In keeping with my desire to build this army without using a single GW model (not counting my Forge World flyers), I've decided to go with the Leviathan Crusader.

I've already started putting the model together and it is a very fun process...not something I say often about model building.  While it comes with the circular stand in the picture above, I am probably going to mount it on a standard GW size stand from Secret Wars.

I'll post pics once I'm finished construction.

I've completed the Armored Elements of my Imperial Guard army.  These models include 1 Forge World flyer, 3 Dust Tactics Walkers, and 10 tanks from a polish model company called bitspudlo.  I'm pretty pleased with the way they turned out overall, but the were two minor modeling mishaps with two of the tanks, but they were very minor.

Next I will post a complete list of these models and there point cost.  I think this Armored Column list is more than 2,500 points (might be 3,000).  I am still planning on adding an infantry elements (probably two Platoons), but I need to get my modelling lackey's to the assembly line.
