Fail

Just like Last year I failed to complete the Dreadtober challenge. I've got quite a bit of progress done on the new Dread but he is not complete. I will get some photos of him tonight and post up my shame. He only needs a few hours more to be complete.

Proof of new model for the Dreadtober challenge.  I'll be assembling into 4 parts, legs, torso, arms.  Priming and then detail work before final assembly.

Dreadtober Returns!

Hey gang I'm going to try to participate in DreadTober again this year.  I did some ok progress last year but failed to complete my dread on time.  This year I'll be working on a Primaris Redemptor Dreadnought I picked up at WarGamesCon for a steal.  Head over to the DreadTober blog and follow along.

He'Stan has a brand new ride!

So this year for my birthday I bought myself a small present for my Salamanders.   The Land Raider Achilles I've been drooling over for ages.  Spent some time the other day getting the kit together.  There are some minor issues with the build instructions that made a small headache getting the main body together but than things just fell into shape.




I've still got to puddy in some gaps and then its on to painting!!!!

FIRE!!!!!!

Ya these guys are gonna be fun, I like the look and the stats look great.

I'm not wild about the hoses that connect the arms to the back sections but overall the suits look fun!

Color Pallet Test

So threw some paint on one of the new Primaris Lieutenants for the Salamanders. Base color is Army Builder Greenskin, with a nuln wash. I will probably go back and highlight with the base color to lighten it up a bit. Over all I'm happy with the look. Photo isn't perfect as its off the phone, I'll get out the good gear for some final photos when things are done.

Dreadtober week 4

Well best laid plans and all.  I did not complete the challenge
that was put forward but I did get paint on models which I haven't done in quite awhile.

I had some set backs that really set me back a week but really at the end of the day I just didn't put in the effort that I needed too. 

I did finally get all the dreads a base coat of green.  The issue is the newer batches of my green are a shade off and just a little duller green.  I was very disappointed in that.

I got more block work done on the primary Contemptor and his brother came in the mail week two.  He got his base coat with Brother Ashmantle and will be painted up as a twin of the first.


Brother Ashmantle has his base green, and I've started his gold super structure.  I was a bit worried it was too much when I started but I think once I get the ink on and get some details it will mellow out.

He will be mostly detail work to really highlight the model.
