More Space Wolves Venerable Dreadnought

Well, my brother emailed to say that the missing arm has turned up, express post, less than a week! Have I got my actual space wolves yet? Nope. Just as well I've had a uni assignment, baby and dreadnought to keep me occupied in the meantime! I just keep telling myself about the money I saved =)

Anyway, have done a little more since last time, but not a heck of a lot.

So here's the parts of the dreadnought I had. I've given them a bit of Fenris Grey and Boltgun Metal.

Next I washed it all with Badab Black, not super noticeable in the picture, but darkens things down and helps redefine the 3Dness of it.

Shadow Grey was applied more neatly this time (it's pretty much the same colour as Fenris Grey), and the metal redone in Chainmail. Some Dwarf Bronze has been added to some bits just to see if I like it. You can see the difference on the main body between where I've already applied the Shadow Grey and where it's still got the wash on.

Here is where I'm currently at with the bits and bobs. Still just playing it a little by ear at the moment as to what colours go where. Haven't done one of these before, and when you're only painting in little snippets it's pretty hard to stay too on track.

Here's the torso, as you can see it's WIP. Still deciding what to do about the rune bits on the top and bottom of the left and right plates. On the right of the picture was my attempt at going over them in silvery colour with the blue underneath. On the left I've covered it all in metallics and will wash down into the runes and see what that looks like. They're really really small and shallow so I'm not sure how well I will be able to get them defined.

Anyway, that's where it all stands at the moment!

  1. It looks like there's some great detail in the sculpt! I love those wolf emblems on the torso! That'll be awesome when all assembled up!
