Dreadtober project: Leviathan complete

I think I've found my forte.  I seem to be able to paint dreadnoughts extremely quickly-- that is, in comparison to my ordinary pace of two infantry per decade.


I was a bit on-and-off about using martian ironearth for its crackle effect, the negative pay-off being of course the thickness of the coat required.  Of course, if you were to suggest a more suitable crackle paint, I'd be all ears!
So anyway, here we are!  Maybe I should complete that venerable dread too.  Photo time!


Keeping with the whole Silent Hill theme of my Astartes, just a vanilla helmet just wasn't going to do.  For some reason, this was my replacement.




Yes, those are actual teeth.


You might not be able to see, but the head is a CSM helmet with the eyes greenstuffed out.


The effect of the ironearth is... okay, I'll admit that it's Very, Very Difficult to regulate; somehow I wish I had access to a chemical that distorted the resin, never mind noxious fumes and allergic reactions. I wonder what would achieve that?

 

And here we are once again, with other family members.  I didn't actually realised the Amphis' Bane was so close in height.

So that's that!  Back to the altar I guess.  Bye bye for now.

    1. Aha, yes indeed. I kept it from the whole Kharn episode last year. But then I don't advertise myself as responsible, do I? ;D
