Operation: Steam Knights (OSK130711) - Sir Benedict LDD
Possible future addition to my on-going Cuusoo theme.
About this creation
NOW ON CUUSOO













NAME: Sir Benedict
BIOGRAPHY: Sir Benedict is a knight in the court of Emperor Rex. As such he has access to the Steam Knight technology and utilises a mecha armour he named "Stormcloud". Benedict and Stormcloud have guarded the castle of the Emperor for all of his adult life and will continue to do so till his last breath. No one is more devoted to his Emperor than Benedict.
WEAPONS: Benedict wields a silver blade he dubbed "Thundercrack" which is enchanted, enhancing his striking speed and throwing out sparks as he battles.
WEAKNESS: Stormcloud is heavily shielded around the cockpit, but vulnerable at the waist and legs. Benedict is not strong enough to wield Thundercrack without Stormcloud, which means he needs to carry additional weapons into battle should he be left without his armour.
ENEMIES: As a guardian of the Throne Room, any opponent of the Emperor is considered his enemy regardless of whether they are elf, dwarf, ogre or human.




Shown with Lady Karolyn his fellow palace guardian.


Benedict is actually named after the actor who plays Sherlock, I thought it was appropriately posh for a knight.

This is the first new build for this theme in sometime, and it was a learning curve to make it look decent. I wanted something that looked heavier and bulkier than my previous, mostly feminine, armours, but retained the same aesthetic. I think I managed it.

Despite giving him an ab-crunch, the placement of the gears to make it appear mechanical, mean there isn't very far for it to bend. But at least it can still turn giving him a waist of sorts.

The colour choices were a pure accident. I originally made him red and silver, but prefer blue and gold as a combination, but didn't realise this was almost the same colour scheme as Kay/Karolyn. I've now decided that this is the house colours of Rex and therefore all future palace guardians will retain this scheme.
