I haven't made the official role yet (working on that), but I intend to complete the Dreadtober challenged over at the Broken Paintbrush. As it so happens, this times nicely with the recent release of Deathwatch minis. I'm completing the drop pod so this is a great time to move on to the Dreadnought. Below is a pick of the initial build, complete with magnetized weapons for the right arm.

So for week one of the challenge kickoff, the dread is assembled and primed black...

Looking forward to carrying the project forward this week by blocking in some base colors (yeah, I know....that's mostly just some more black! :P).  Stay tuned for more as the I rise to the challenge.

Cheers and Happy Gaming!


  1. Nice! Is the sticky tack on the front to magnetise the front panel?

    1. Hah! Great idea, but no. I use the sticky tack to mask areas I still want to use plastic glue on later so I have a bare plastic-to-plastic bond. I prefer that to super glue, especially where super glue will only adhere to the paint which can then flake off, releasing the bond.
