I joined up for the dreadtober challenge! It is hosted by my fellow gamer M4cr0dutch.
The challenge requires you to paint a single dreadnought sized miniatures during October. Pretty manageable I think.
Normally, I don’t do work in progress stuff here on my page. In fact, I hardly do unit shots or painting stuff anymore. Maybe I should get back to that?
I choose to paint a standard marine dreadnought for my yet unnammed private label space marine chapter (Clandestine Hammers or Sons of Opelius are my working titles)
Progress has been slow but certain. I received the mini in a high gloss red blood angels theme, and put it into the acetone to find the metal mini underneath.
Then I hand undercoated it and so on… started painting.
Managing the pieces while painting is a little troublesome as they components are really heavy and the paint rubs off if I am not careful.
Here is the progress as of today:
Bog standard painting… base colour, army painter wash adn the base colour again.
I use vallejo medium blue and gw khorne red. The highlights are army painter Viking blue, troglodyte blue, and valejo blood red
