Painting Dreadnoughts!

Thought I would do a bit of an update. I’ve not played any games this week owing to time constraints and needing to get other things sorted out (wedding) but I have managed to squeeze in some painting here and there.

I’ve finished the Primaris Intercessor squad and tried to take a half decent picture of them – tricky with an ipad and some sheets of A4 paper but I think you get the idea. I’ve improved with every model I have painted and I am so pleased with the contrasting edge highlighting on the blue armour.

Today’s project was to make a start on the deredeo dreadnought I’ve had sitting about for a while. I wanted to try some blending on the flat areas of his plates and it has taken an age to get right. I’ve also tried to paint a light source on it as well, something I have never done before. He is far from finished but I feel I have done a pretty neat job so far. I’ve also stuck in a picture of Guilliman because he’s now assembled and awaiting some paint. An awesome model who is going to be a further challenge!

As a side note, I’ve reached over 22 000 words of my Chapter’s story and am about to start part 3. Another thing I am proud of this week!

I want to do a couple of shoutouts to awesome people I have met lately too. Dave, a Space Wolf player, has been instrumental in encouraging my to share my stuff with the wider world adn encouraging me to do so. This is a link to his blog, go check it out, there is some great stuff over there!

I have also met some photographer dude named Chris Frosin! He has just returned to the hobby, is the most enthusiastic person on the planet and also has encouraged me to be better than I am. The updates and questions about what I am painting/writing has kept me focused. This is his website, check him out!

Also… this if you like stupid and 40K stuff, give this blog a bit of a look through… It’s pretty dumb…
