Dreadknight - final pics after varnishing

I finaly varnished the Dreadknight so now you get to see pics of the complete mini. Overal it was a great mini to build and paint. I aimed for high quality but at the same time I wanted it to be a mini that I could use for gaming so I tried to keep the overal time spend on painting somewhere between 20 - 30 hours. Let me know what you think of the finished mini.

Hint: This mini could be the start of a new army...

Full speed ahead

More work is being done. I've completed most of the edge highlights on the metalics and I love the results so far. The only think that's left to do is paint a final layer of Mithril Silver (yeah i know it's got a new name now but I'm too lazy to check it) highlights on the armour, paint the eye lenses and two gems and touch up a few mistakes. Oh, and the final details on the base.

Dreadknight progress

I did some work yesterday. The heraldic shield was the most time consuming but also the most fun part. I also shaded some metalics where I wanted a more dirty/ worn look.

My faith is my shield (and adhessive putty is my temporary support):

A knight is rising!

Long time no see folks. To make up for this I embarked on a new big project: a dreadknight! Yeah, that's right, the one with the ridiculously huge sword. At least it was a good excuse to use my airbrush after a long hiatus. At this stage I haven't used a paintbrush yet but I will be doing soon as I need an excuse to try the 'Eavy metal brush that came along with the Citadel Edge Paints.

The Dreadknight (weapons and sword are magnetised):





My weapon of choice? A choice of weapons!
