"The first Lion Knight was a failure. Its vision permanently fixed a few moments into the future, it was driven mad living outside of time and deemed too unstable to lead the Golden Entity’s armies. Now imprisoned deep within the Golden Labyrinth, the first Lion Knight stews in its derangement, the heady stench attracting Wailing Smoke from all corners of the abyss. The first Lion Knight spends its lonely days in lively conversation with them"

This is the story that goes with the Lion Knight First and it very much grabbed me and influenced how I painted and designed the base for him. I wanted to try and carry over and emphasise the feelings of lonlieness and abandonment that the story suggests as well as the tragic insanity of The Lion Knight

One of the saddest, most tragic and pathotic of the KDM sculpts and definitely one of my favourites.
