Regular readers following my progress with the Conquest publication might be surprised to see this Dreadnought. No, I haven’t had the Dreadnought issues early, it’s just a standard Easy to Assemble Redemptor Dreadnought I had on my to do pile. Whilst waiting for issues 3, 4, 5 and 6 to be delivered I had some spare time and decided to reinforce my Dark Angels. More pics after the jump.
I painted the whole Dreadnought by hand. I didn’t use my airbrush, so I’m quite happy with the blending. I just upscaled my Dark Angel tutorial.
Ooops, I’ve missed the highlights on the exhaust stack armour. Does anyone else do that?
I kept the weathering quite basic. Sponged on some metal chipping and then used a weather powder around the feet. I’m also really happy with how the freehand icons came out. If I was to add heavier weathering, I’d probably sponge some green over the icons, but I quite lie them looking clean. After all the Primaris are brand new.
Check back soon, when I return with more progress on my Warhammer Conquest models.
Nice work! A clean sharp paint job. I love it. That makes me want to add a Redemptor to my own Dark Angel force now….
This is impressive on many levels mate, good work!
And yes, we all miss bits! I usually notice when I'm photographing it, its a real pain to go back and fix and then get all the photo gear out again…
Nice, love the simplicity of the base, it looks really effective. Nice subtle weathering on the feet too. Shame its not grey and Relictors, but hey, we decend from DA geneseed (maybe thats why we dabble in Chaos too 😉
How many hours does a model like this take you?

I didn't like the model initially but it has grown on me. I wish they would have stayed truer to the original Dreadnought design, but it still makes a great centrepiece. Love your version with the red weapon casings. But I hope you'll go back and add the missing highlights? 😉
