Thanks Maharg! Inspiration/motivation come and go, so I try and seize as many moments of productivity as I can. We never have as much time as we'd like to devote to the hobby!

That's the plan gobert. Gonna go pick up some more of those PVC fittings as I have a bunch of pipe leftover. Rust them up and I think they'll be great; if I can work out a way to add some platforms to them, even better!

I slapped some glue on some of the terrain pieces from earlier and threw down some quick base colours; lots of detail work and tidying up to do but I'm pretty happy with how they're coming together.

I took a few progress shots - they were sprayed black and then got a light dusting of silver before I sponged on the colours one at a time. I kind of wish I had left the metallic bits as they were from the sprays; oh well. If I hate how they look after washing and weathering I'll just put black back over and tape the rest up and spray again.

EDIT: pardon my entire life that you can see in the background of these photos, hahah! My son was painting at the same time for some of it, and our dogs had to come check out what was going on too - poor pup got desexed on Tuesday and feeling a little sorry for himself.

Started with the blue:



Onto orange:











A cream colour that I will try to work up closer to white; doesn't really photograph well:









On the table:





I am finally back to work tomorrow after an extended Christmas break; so hobby progress might slow down for a while. I am super excited to get a table's worth of terrain so hopefully will find some time somewhere to get stuck in!

Painted up the terrain for a game on the weekend! Pretty happy overall - would still love to go back and detail some of the bigger blander pieces but will get to that in time. Got school holidays coming up; hoping to get through the dreadnought army over the next couple weeks.

That's some nice terrain there, great use of bits and bobs! Good scheme too, pulls off vibrant and industrial at the same time, and not overly complicated.

Lovely terrain making good use of old odds and ends. Pretty cool how you’ve made them so bright but so grimy and dirty at the same time! There seems to be a giant wandering around in the background of one of the pics... sweet outdoor room you’ve got for hobbying. Really nice table, I’d be getting in to trouble for using that!

Thanks guys! Still trying to find the balance between "good enough I can be proud of it" and "achievable in a decent timeframe to avoid spirals of catastrophising about the endless plastic sea in front of me"

@gobert, that giant has claimed more than a few minis in his time...I swear his reach grows by a foot every time I turn around!

I've made a start on the dreads - I'm gonna go with the Iron Jackals, as an ancient space wolves successor chapter.

Before Primaries marines came around space pups couldn't have successors because their shared tribal magic superman juice was tainted and super unstable

So the Iron Jackals were a failed experiment gone horribly right - the marines were genetically perfect but not suitable for combat because they aged at a ridiculous rate and started to deteriorate/go senile/become crazy and dangerous

Luckily for them the computer nerds at adeptus mechanics stepped in and helped churn out the dreadnought production to inter the marines them pretty much as soon as they came out of the chemical birthing tanks

Over the years the attrition has taken its course and the jackals feel the losses even more than a usual chapter cause each one is basically an army unto themselves

So the 12 dreads I have at 2k points will be close to the whole chapter

I also have plans for a tech marine dreadnought with some grabby claws or octo arms or something, probably to run as an Ironclad

Here they are 8-)

G'day mate - nice to have you on board. My motivation seems to come in bursts - so if I don't capitalise, things don't get done...testament to that - I still have about 100 kriegsmen waiting to be built in the queue!

gobert wrote:Cool looking dreads! Great fluffy reasons for them all being interned too. They’re going to be impressive once all 12 are stomping across the battlefield!


Thanks gobert! I am looking forward to it too. Have been playing a little mini-escalation with them vs my mate's Chaos/Fallen, at 500 then 1000. We're 1-1 at this point and have a full 2k match next weekend, so hopefully get them battle ready for that! I am still off work for the week too so no excuses...right?

Boss Salvage wrote:Dig the power glow against that gray


Thanks mate - I took some inspiration from the sigmar dwarves on the last page. I tried to replicate their lava bases but didn't like the effect; then went for martian crust but also wasn't happy - so back to old reliable snow! I think I'd like to add another secondary colour to help break things up a bit - maybe ice blue, runic inscriptions...

Thanks CB there's just something really satisfying about playing on a board you've made yourself! They may not be perfect but they're mine and I love them.

amazingturtles wrote:The boxy little dreads! they look so good, and that shield came out amazingly. Good backstory too, it's always good to gave marines a little tragedy, ha


Thank you turtles! I was a bit worried about the shield honestly - it's from a Reaper bones mini, and the plastic they use seems to hate primer and refuse to take it. The rest of the dread had already been painted though and I haven't been in the mood/had the patience/managed to find the effort to strip them so they've all just been sprayed over - it seemed to turn out okay this time though!

youwashock wrote:That terrain set is absolutely gorgeous. Can't wait to see more bots, too.


Cheers mate! Your wish is my command - though none finished yet. I have managed to do the last few conversions and cover up some of the more obvious blood angel bits - so these bad boys are mostly ready to paint. Only the quad autocannon guy is yet to receive his arms from ebay but they should hopefully be arriving this week too!

I got a few base layers down on Bjorn and the other axe/shield dread, but that's about all the painting progress so far.

Group shot



My counts-as Bray'arth and 2 x lascannon chappy dreads, with the armless soon-to-be rifleman dread


Bjorn, the two axe/shield ven dreads, and Murderfang - who I'm naming as Neckbiter because his little backstory is that he went straight for the throat of the tech-priest trying to move him from birthing tank to dreadnought, so in retaliation they kept his body exposed at the front of his dread...unlucky for them he's proved unstoppable and always makes life difficult when he comes back to the mothership for repairs


The librarian dreadnought w the bell on top, and 3 furiosos w frag cannons




I also made up a set of objective markers to go with the terrain set out of some Necromunda pieces and just junk I had laying around. They replace the dice that we've been using in our home games so far - but I still wanted to make them easily recognisable as being numbered 1-6. So all odds are blue and evens are orange; and they even have a bit of a rhyming pneumonic to help remember.

1 is for gun - because of the guns in the container.
2 is for .22 - for the bullets.



3 is for IT because it's a computer!
4 is for door because the doors of the tabernacle are open...



FIVE is for screwDRIVEr, and
6 is for thicc, because it's the biggest one by far



Love to everyone. Hope you're finding ways to stay busy at home!

Thanks guys. Plugged away today, got Bjorn and Axel pretty much done bar a few final touches like the underslung weapons.









A group shot of the finished dreads - 1/3 of the army!



And just starting on Neckbiter. Seems like a lot of work to get to the stage the other two are at!

@gobert thanks mate! I sometimes worry about the glow being a bit tacky or Power Rangers-y, but then I think it's Warhammer 40,000 and that sort of thing is par for the course...

@CB, I may have printed out a cheat sheet with them - including the mnemonic - to take along to our games...

Been chugging along through these guys...I'm choosing to think of school holidays during quarantine as enforced hobby time.

Neckbiter finished



Chaplains finished



The other furiosos finished



And a group shot - it's definitely starting to feel like an army!



Got the librarian and melee chaplain on the block next, then it's just armless - his autocannons are due to arrive some time this week so I'll try have him ready for them when they get here.

Thanks everyone!

@gobert, these are all plastic - thankfully! I still have nightmares about dropping an old metal box dread on my foot as a kid...

Got a good production line going but it came to a halt today when I ran out of white. Need to restock and also grab another pot of valhallan blizzard to add more snow to all the bases - I'd like them all to match the ven dread on bottom left on the group shot, I think the contrast helps against the grey.

I still managed to get mum dread & dad dread finished! They are noticably darker then the other guys, so it will either be a case of lightening them back up when I get my hands on some more white, or seeing if another wash of Nuln Oil will bring the others down to them. Or just handwaving it as them being the two oldest dreadnoughts and having more time to get dirty/oily/lose their shine/whatever.

Only rifleman to go now!
