Dreadnought Detail

Dreadnought Detail

Hi all,

After finishing my Dark Angels Dreadnought recently, I decided to pay it another visit. Now I wasn’t sure what needed changing, but I was sure about the fact that I hadn’t included as much detail on this model as I have done with the majority of my other models. So to add further detail, I attempted to paint a free-hand Dark Angels symbol using an excellent tutorial from Ron over at From the Warp. The break in the sword works on two levels, firstly it is a neccessary part of the model so I couldn’t avoid it, and secondly it can now allow me to represent the model as a standard Dreadnought as well as a Venerable Dreadnought, complete with the broken sword of the Deathwing! Check the pic for my end result. It took me about 25 minutes to complete in total which is a great amount of time if you ever want to go back and add a few details to your models. With the flash on, the paint appears shiny which it isn’t as all the colours are painted with a matte effect, so  I will try and work on a better picture, but any feedback is appreciated for my first attempt!

Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Thanks very much for the compliments mate! I have just finished a freehand Iron Halo for my Razorback, will post pics later this week. I will be paying close attention to your Space Marine projects, if they are anything like your Tau I’m sure it they will all be amazing!
