I love the Dreadknight model, I really enjoyed painting this monster of a model. I opted for a heavy psycannon and Nemesis Great Sword. The sword alone took me 5 and a half hours to paint by hand (no airbrush). The armour was painted by mixing blue wash into Vallejo Game Colour Silver to give a blue metallic and then blended up to silver. Giving a very shiny blue steel feel to the armour. I love the contrasts with the oily aged pistons and hydraulics and the darker gun metals.
this is amazing, it doesn't even look real!

Stunning. The work on the sword is amazing, considering it was done by brush.
The dreadknight looks really good. I am curious why you didn't try using the airbrush for the sword? You have just started airbrushing I believe. Les Bursley has a tutorial on his space wolves video that shows how to do it pretty quickly.
I've been using an airbrush for a few years now. I could have airbrushed the sword and blended the colours, but where's the fun in that? 😀
