I wanted to round out the week showing off the Deredeo with more livery. I put some time into transfers last night, picking out legion iconography and personal livery for the warrior entombed within. A Terran veteran of the unification wars lies within this dreadnought. This probably deserves a lightning bolt or two, but I haven't located the proper decals yet form my large and unwieldy collection.
For now, we have legion black and white checkers along with the legion designation and icon on the knees. It is always fun to break out the ancient dark angels icons (the wings on the left knee) from the earliest GW sets for these Horus Heresy kits.
A unit designation and personal heraldry have been applied to the right side of the missile launcher unit, since this dreadnought does not have a proper shoulder pad. I will go back in and pick out the gold trip again, which barely shows up in the picture. I'm considering adding some skulls or other significant kill markings on the broad ankle plates. I don't want to over do it though with the bling. :)
On the other side we have an honer mark (maybe from a past campaign?) and a tribute to the emperor and the Imperium (the Aquila). The Aquila is form the same old decal sheet as the DA icon.
That's how the Dreadnought will end the week. I hope to wrap this project up next week by completing the base and remaining paint work; mostly highlights and detailing left.
Best of luck for your own projects.
Cheers and Happy Gaming!
