Dreadnought Restoration Part 1.5 WIP

Hi all

Earlier on today I posted the beginning of the restoration work I'm doing on my first dreadnought (here's the link if you didn't see it http://signoftheaquila.blogspot.com/2012/01/dreadnought-restoration-part-1-wip.html). And now at the end of the day I have a small update as to the progress.

First up a slight modification to the front plate. I decided to add the raised piece around the vision slit back on. In the previous version I just greenstuffed over it and left it at that. This time round I decided I wanted to add that little bit more detail to an otherwise flat surface.

Some runes I've sculpted to go on the legs.

My own sculpted Logan Grimnar symbol. Its the first time I've tried doing anything like this and I think it's turned out ok. Whether it will stay or not is to be decided. I may try it a second time and see what happens.

Well that's it for today (it really is, 3 posts in a day is enough). As always thanks for taking the time to have a look and please feel free to leave any comments, be they good or bad or somewhere in between.


Forgeworld Space Wolves Venerable Dreadnought WIP 2

Hi all

For my second post today I bring a small up date on my forgeworld venerable dreadnought. So far I've assembled the major components, magnetized the arms and done any greenstuff work that was required.

As you'll notice the wolf pelt banner isn't attached to it yet. Partly this is because I've noticed its slightly warped and will need correcting and partly because I intend to paint it separately. 

Dreadnought Restoration Part 1 WIP

Hi all

Today I bring a small WIP post on my original dreadnought (pictured below). It was one of the first models I got for my space wolves and has served well many times.However after almost 8 years (I think it will be about that) my dreadnought is starting to look a bit worse for wear. The banner pole is hanging on by a thread. The paint job is poor due to many repaints and touch ups. So i decided it was time to give my dreadnought a bit of TLC and seen as I'm working on a venerable dreadnought too its the prefect time to restore it to its former glory.

The picture below is pretty much how it was before I started to work on it. An exception is the banner pole which in this picture is not broken.

Forgeworld Space Wolves Venerable Dreadnought WIP 1

Hi all

Today I bring a few pictures of my new dreadnought. Its the Space Wolves venerable dreadnought from Forgeworld. I have wanted this model since it first came out and now I finally have it. For the arms I decided to go for an assault cannon, a plasma cannon and of course the humble dreadnought close combat weapon. Now you may be wondering why I have chosen an assault cannon or plasma cannon rather than say going for autocannons, which I know is a very popular load out around the internet. The main reason is, based on the fluff, Space Wolves are rather keen on plasma weaponry so been a more fluff orientated player I decided on a plasma cannon.

And so here are the pictures of the components before and after I'd cleaned up the flash.
